Actually, I said earlier that I couldn't choose. 40 has just done so much more in the game that I have to choose him over Nas' book carrier, although AZ is dope haha. Truth is that you can't go wrong with either one, that "beef" was a long time ago and it doesn't really concern me.
I got a bird's eye view

what is with this Nas's book carrier stuff.  They haven't worked together in 4 years.  AZ is putting out better music then Nas now.

^ you're a fuckin idiot blood.. your little comments here and there is on some sucka shit.. what the fuck is your screen name about? you always been a hater.. fuck you and your east coast lil attitude.. all you muthafucaz is on cali dick anyway.. always will be.. can I get a witness or what? The old new york been over ever since 80's hit, you imitate our lifestyle, point blank, period.. y'all just speak different..

Now back to the topic.. what the fuck has AZ done ever since his verse on "Life's A Bitch" ?? his songs are trash, he is just a version of Nas gone wrong. He can spit, but can he make a song? Fuck no! The only reason KOCH fucks wit him is because of the little weight he holds from Illmatic.. 40 on the other hand is a game spitter, soak his songs in, he is spittin such slick shit that it will go over your head if you just a simple muthafuca.. MCs like AZ just be spittin, half of the time, it doesn't contain no real point to it, they just puttin them words together by flow.. 40 on the other hand delievers them messages that you wouldn't even get if you ain't really from an urban area.. suckas like Tommy live in those areas, but they ain't from there.. huge difference.

40 been doin it since 87, he's 40 years old and still very much relevant, just come to the bay and speak down on 40, see how cats will be at your neck like you just dissed their father.. cats really hold this dude up super high.. he has a whole region behind him.. even his enemies admit he's king.. how do I know? I'm amongst Mac Dre's folks that opposed him.. trust me.. shit's deeper in the bay.. huge movement behind the man.. when he goes platinum, it ain't the same fans that's buyin 50 cent or Ja Rule shit, it's majority solid muthafucaz.. go to a 40 show and tell me it wasn't one of the best experiences of your life.. he's in Vegas all the time.. hit it up.. it goes down like a prom dress.. can't say the same about AZ.. who is he again? shit who knows.. all I know is 40 will destroy AZ in a battle.. I got 10 Gz on it.. say I don't !!

well ROD I don't think you're gonna change opinions

the best way to put it if you think E-40 is better is this:   AZ is one dimensional compared to E-40

that's all I can think of to really really make a valid point

you can get very very bored with AZ...... you can get tired of E-40 but never bored

40 for sure!!!! He's one of the pioneers from the Bay, one of the first to go independent and blow up, plus he's one of the biggest names from the West.

AZ is just another rapper from NY, and although he's got skills, the truth is that there's nothing special about this guy.

LMFAO... whats has AZ done since his verse on Lifes a Bitch....  Doe or Die is a classic.  Pieces of a of man, AWOL, the Format, his work on the firm album.  All dope shit.  And you say people who don't like 40 just dont understand what he is saying.  That is laughable b/c if you think AZ is just spitting words to flow then it's obvious you aint shit either b/c that going over your head if you really believe that.  If you dont understand what AZ is spitting you either aint "soakin" it in or you're just a dumb motherfucka which is probably the case with you.  Yup b/c getting thizzed isn't something suburban white kids have been for years.  The differences is they are just popping X and acting like jack offs but don't have a name for it.  Wow thats really hood.  And good for E-40 that he has gone plat.  Nelly has gone almost diamond I guess that means he is better then most of the rap game ?  So sales is more important then good music.  It's solid muthafuckaz... yea when MTV was trying to push the hyphy movement I guess MTV were some solid muthafuckaz ?  How did that Hyphy / Bay area movement work out anyways ?  The East Coast sound had its strong run, The West Coast G-Funk run had its strong run, The south is still having a strong run.  Hyphy lasted about a month and then it went to the bay.   And LOL @ NY being on cali's dick.  The fact the whole rap culture pretty much started in NY.  So I guess you are saying the West stole NY's whole culture ?  The sooner ignorant cats like you realize that every region is biting every region the better off we're all be.    And as much as you would like to believe it... people in NY aren't walking around with khakis and chucks.  They aren't ghostriding there cars.

Im from fake Queens... so there is a real and fake one now ?  And I am a loner white trash.... wow going back 5-6 years Rod.  Stuff that I said myself regarding myself.  Wow you are reaching.  I will be the first person to admit my life sucked and I sucked at life.  Things have changed Rod.  And idolizing John Gotti, yup I do.  Why b/c he was someone that came from nothing to make something of himself.  He went from a poor no one from the South Bronx to running NY.  And here was someone that deny who he was.  Unlike most of the world who lie about who and what they are.  And i downloaded the track Yay area... nothing special.  Lyrically AZ >>> E-40.  AZ's smooth flow >>>> E-40 sounding like he has a mouth full of jellybeans.

I know the Bay is a real ass place and yall respect the fuck outta 40.  Props for that. 

But your arguement is largely based on his status amongst the Bay and doesn't necessarily say what makes him a better MC.  What has AZ done since "Life's A Bitch"?  For starters, Doe or Die prolly isn't a classic, but it's damn close.  AZ's lyricism and flow was arguably the dopest in the game at that time.  You can't hear "Rather Unique" and disagree.  His verse on "Affirmative Action" was ridiculous.  Completely made you forget about Nas (Mega helped too).  And I'd argue that AZ has never made a wack album.  Can 40 make that claim?

But it's 2008, so lets look at their recent shit.  Look at the last 2 singles and last 2 albums AZ has released compared to what 40's last 2 singles and last 2 albums.  AZ wins.  I respected Hyphy as a new original sound, but unless you're thizzin at a party, you can't bump that album all the way through.  And I'm all down for partyin and shit, but if the album has no value otherwise, whats the point?

And bananas, you my nig, but calling AZ Nas' book carrier isn't accurate.  It was funny as fuck though.   Nas' lyrical content>AZ lyrical content, but AZ flow>Nas' Flow

I'm from the last generation before hyphy, that stuff don't apply to me too much.. but I do support the movement cuzz it's all around me. But that is not the argument, bottomline is that E40 is an MC to me, the way he writes has its own little way that no one can touch, this is coming from someone who's been writing and analyzing all his life, you'd just have to soak him enough to understand. And hey, at least you understand his hustle.. which imitates that true bay hustle, something no area can compare with.

I like E-40's lyrical content as well as delivery better. its shit you can relate to, and its not just blah black rock blah blah block standard delivery like AZ does. AZ is good for a new york rapper though
