good but overrated.

i would say overrated when comparing him to pac or saying that he's the best ever. his voice and flow is so smooth and he was a great stroy teller but i think he went to early and that limited his longevity in the game and that hurts his stake as the greatest ever. a top 10 IMO.

Yep

I just love listening to his songs to laugh...it's really hard to keep a straight face listening to him.

^^ not even man, it's one thing to say who u prefer, it's another to go against fact especially when ur being bias and u know it  (not u personally)


that's like me sayin Daz is a better rapper than 2Pac, I listen to Daz stuff more than 2Pac and I have more of a feeling for the majority of his stuff, but I do like 2Pac a lot... it's just fact that Daz isn't a better rapper than 2Pac if u compared track records, ya know?


and, you'd rather have a wall-eyed jabba the hut spittin lyrics with a cheeseburger in his mouth than a Westsider Rider?


well if u compare them like dat, biggie was the best rapper, he was pushing ill punchlines and multi syllables one after one with one of the greatest flow ever, he was able to switch his flow on demand. Listen to life after death, he switch his flow like 10 times on this cd. His metaphore were amongst the best, and they were sometimes funny as fuck. but i do prefer 2pac, 2pac is my number one, but for other reason than lyricism. And don't forget his storytelling, plus i think he was the best in term of versatility, he did great club songs, street anthem and straight gangsta shit. There is not a style that biggie didn't mastered.

Completly agree. I'm going with 2Pac because the dud can do just about anything. Like Bad Boy Killer said he was so versatile and always had some real shit to say.

Why is that so hard to believe? Its not like he said Daz is better than Pac.

Jeez, I know this is a westcoast forum and all, but at least try to be more objective.

I prefer 2Pac as a rapper, but I can see why someone would pick Biggie over Pac. As an artist, a as public figure as a whole though, it's not contest. Pac takes that eeeeeeeasily.

^^what he said...whats funny to me is you picked 2 random lines, ok maybe not technically very impressive, but use that alone as an example of why you find Biggie laughable... ::) please elaborate...

with the body of work Biggie created in the short space of time he was around, he's gotta be up there in the top 10 or maybe even top 5 for me...as far as the whole who's better, Big or Pac, imo Biggie was far better technically, as far as his flows, metaphors, storytelling ability...but what Pac lacked in those aspects, he more than made up for with his charisma and personality, which came through so strongly in his music...im a big fan of both artists, so thats what i think... 8)

He had the potential to be among the greatest.
But he has only 2 albums which is not enough material to put him high on your list.
Even if you believe those 2 albums are classics I think you can't say he is the G.O.A.T.
So he is not high on my list. Maybe Top 25, but not Top 10.

This is basically it...Tupac had the best lyrics but his flow is average, Biggie has the best flow but his lyrics weren't always top notch, Jay-Z has pretty much the total package, he has a sick flow and can rhyme with the best of them, but it's just my opinion, no need to hate

to me the best was pac, my favourite rapper is snoop, but i have no problems with cats who think biggy is better, nuff cats beleive that, biggy had an amazing way of flowing his thoughts together whether it be a club jam or a serious jam, biggy is in my top 5, damn people cant deny biggy, if your speaking about how death put him to new heights, than people can argue that point alot more for pac, even though i beleive his the best

peace...........biggy gotta be given his props, top 5 of all time

there is no way you can rate biggie as the 2nd best rapper ever.

he just isn't - I can't really put forward an argument against it apart from the fact I can name 5 rappers off the top of my head more deserving of the top 5 G.O.A.T. spots.

#2 is just as over-generous

He's possible top 5, most likely top 10. I can't really see how he could be better than Pac - theres just so much more Pac to listen to, plus like half of one of Biggies albums is filled with shit. But i agree that his flow is damn good, and some of his songs are pretty amazing. I guess its just my opinion, but i would say that Pac is just much better, cant really substantiate it that much, but agree with what most of you have been saying.
I dunno how someone could say Jay-Z greatest rapper of all time though  ???
I'm a shit judge, but he wouldnt make my top 25, and if so pretty much on only one or two songs, but then i dont have reasonable doubt yet...

Me, being from the Westcoast, listening to both of them before they died, i liked Biggie more, I really did not dig tupac until after he died, but even then Biggie > Tupac IMO
thats just me, and i still feel that way
