Title: most consistant rap artists
Post by: Bigg $amo on November 01, 2005, 09:01:32 PM
who do you think is the most consistant rapper of our time..?

I think it's redman.. never really heard a wack verse or bad cd of him.

Nas and i always thought that all of 2pacs albums were solid lyrically and that he continually improved with each new album.

I think E-40 is one of the only vets that is constantly improving.

Redman? Hell naw, Rollercoaster Malpractice was wack & it seems like his new album's going to be wack too.

Public Enemy sorta lost their touch, they can't really make classics like they once did. They're anything but consistant, really.

Nas had one big misstep in his career, which obviously was dropping the Nastradamus album only 6 months after I Am... You can't make classics on such short term. It sucked and now it's hurting his legacy. Other than that, Nas has been one of the most consistent rappers out there (apart from dropping a wack verse on Kanye's We Major).

Or how about Quik, yeah. He's never been great as a rapper but his beats have always been on point and he always comes correct. Easily one of the most consistent rappers out there.

Another one that comes to mind is Common. Has always been dope, and will always remain dope. He's even improving in a major way throughout his career.

I'll agree with Kill though... It's the wack rappers that's always been the most consistent in dropping garbage. Prime examples: Lil Jon, Master P...

Elevz: I agree with most. Common had his better and his worse stuff IMO, he is kind of consistent though.

and as for good rappers, yeah, Outkast take it. Their albums range from incredible to very good and they've got 5 (or 6) out

Kool G Rap is definently up there with the most consistant rappers of all time but at the same time his beat selection sucks so his albums haven´t been all that great from an overall perspective. but just as far as the rapping goes he´s definently one of the best and most consistant rappers of all time and i have heard very few wack verses from him and i´ve heard every song he´s done from 1985-2005. Scarface is another rapper who´s also very consistant and he´s definently more consistant then G Rap if you look at other things then just the rhymes(beat selection,song making ability). Bun B is another mc who´s consistant as hell and he´s also dropped very few wack verses from 91-05. but could y´all define consistant a little bit more coz there´s tons of artists who are extremely consistant on the lyrical tip but they aren´t great song makers but still got top notch rhymes and hardly spits any wack verses.

I wasn't talking about how consistent their style is, I'm talking quality ::). Outkast has never put out a garbage album. What's also amazing about them is that, unlike most hip-hop artists, they've grown since they're first album and have become more successful than ever.

DJ Quik, E-40, Snoop Dogg, Tash, just to name a few.....

Please tell me you in your right mind didn't just put Snoop Dogg on the list of most consistant rappers. I don't know how you can even think of his name like that... He went from dropping "Doggystyle" and "Tha Doggfather" to "The game is to be sold" and albums like "R&G" and "Paid tha cost" with in the mean time some quite nice albums like "Tha last meal" and "NL Top Dogg", and how about his weak series of mixtapes, or the average shit he did with Tha Eastsidaz? Of course, Snoop's been of great value when he was working with Dre on his projects, but really... I'll nominate  him for being the least consistant rap artist of all time. There's no words to describe how hard dude really fell off. He seems really incapable of making a decent album on his own these days.

i tried listening to it again the other day and it wasn't half as bad as i remember it.  maybe it just wasn't what i expected at the time.  it still doesn't stack up to the albums he did previous to it though.

Well, Snoop DID fall off hard and he isn't consistent either. As for Tha Eastsidaz' albums, Snoop is very much the weakest link on them, especially on the first one.

For consistency,I'd also like to add RBX. He's been able to spit since day one and he can still do it. Nevertheless,he's an underachiever and has had quite a few moments of weakness.

really, cause not only do i not think its not the dumbers post ever, but i think its a good post, i think the fact that he went from doggystyle to drop it like its hot, makes him 1 of the least consistent rappers

Outside of the USA... Extince easily takes it. There won't ever be another rapper as consistant as him. Dropping albums since 1998 and they're all exactly the same (really nice but not classic) quality.
