We all must admit that CHI TOWN MC's have been on fire in last few years...not a lot of material, but atlest QUALITY material. This comes up because I just bough Lupe's Food And Liquor Today. I know it came out last weak, but I dont download. I though it was amazing. Any way: The poll is on who has the crown as the best Chi town MC in the past year or so.

The nominees are:

Kanye West
Common
Twista
Rhymefest
&
Lupe Fiasco

Outta the chi right now its Lupe. Watch. Aint nobody rappin about the shit he rappin about and the way he rappin about it. Lupe is from outerspace. Ppl think hes a joke or they dismiss him as hype but once the truth is told about whats happening then ppl will run to listen to what Lupe said and most likely pretend that they didnt say the things they did.....and so on and so on.


Oh yeah....I voted Kanye. He called out the Prez on National TV and aint nobody else stand up like that. Nuff said , nuff respect.

Yo...on The Amen, Corner I stood lookin at my former hood
Felt the spirit in the wind, knew my friend was gone for good
Threw dirt on the casket, the hurt, I couldn't mask it
Mixin down emotions, struggle I hadn't mastered
I coreograph seven steps to heaven
And hell, waiting to exhale and make the bread leavened
Veteran of a cold war It's Chica-I-go for
What I know or, what's known
So some days I take the bus home, just to touch home
From the crib I spend months gone
Sat by the window with a clutched dome listenin to shorties cuss long
Young girls with weak minds, but they butt strong
Tried to call, or at least beep the Lord, but didn't have a touch-tone
It's a dog-eat-dog world, you gotta mush on
Some of this land I must own
Outta the city, they want us gone
Tearin down the 'jects creatin plush homes
My circumstance is between Cabrini and Love Jones
Surrounded by hate, yet I love home
Ask my God how he thought travellin the world sound
Found it hard to imagine he hadn't been past downtown
It's deep, I heard the city breathe in its sleep
Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep
Deep, I heard my man breathe in his sleep
Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep

Fine, Common is a king in his own rite. He aint pushin no limits doin ads for the Gap though and thats the truth. We need leaders to stand up and do something that will aid to the benifite of the ppl. If you aint teachin the children by action or what have you , then they will be lost and all they know will be diamonds and gold and rubber and steel. Those are not good things. The diamonds and gold would be good if the right person told us what they can really be used for and why we all idolize that shit. Theres a reason why those elements intrance us. I'm way off subject though.......

IF we are talking about who has done the most for us, its Kanye.

Common is the better MC.

Lupe and Rhymefest are good Soldiers.

Juice needs to come up. He is a legend in the city though.

My guy, MADMAN EL JIBARO, will be coming up and tearing the whole scene up.

Im not a fan.

But in chicago, Its kind of mixed. He gets love and Hate. Many people do like him. He rolls with the molemen, who are big in the underground scene when it comes to production her in chicago. Vakill is on the hate or like situation in chicago, IMO.

I saw him live and he is boring on stage.

You may want to get another opinion. This is just what I see.

MY favorite Mcs in chicago that people may not know:

Longshot
Iomos Marad.
Thiaone Davis.

Ressurrection wasn't boring
One Day It'll All Make Sense wasn't boring
Like Water For Chocolate wasn't boring
Be wasn't boring


only one of his albums is boring so i don't even really see what you're trying to say

For once , somebody actually reps Be in a positive mannor. Be is themed so perfectly that if you listen to it right, Common makes you wanna be a fuckin superhero.
