Why Jada? What the hell is it about Jadakiss? Seriously. I hang my head in shame at Q-Tip. It may be a while before I can break out some ATCQ.....

did it not occur to anyone that the reason he named those mc's in particular is because he most likley remains in close contact with them and felt obliged to name those mc's on a mainstream radio show.........I mean c'mon if he was to start saying "yeah im into RA the Rugged man, Masta Ace, MF Doom etc" the audience would not know who the fuck he was talking about so whats the point, just give the answers relevent to the show and thats it.

Or the audience would go "who the fuck is that?" and look into them. If he wanted to give exposure to dudes he would've.

Nothing's wrong with him (other than looking like a turtle). But if you're thinking of the top five, are you really going to put him up with Nas and Hov?

I agree that he should give props to the people that truly deserve it but Q Tip aint perfect and there is nothing wrong in him liking mainstream artists either but I feel that he just mentioned some of the ones he like but highlighted mc's people know so they could relate.

relevent to the show and thats it.

nah but thats the thing, they weren't even talking about top 5 alive list, he just came out with it all of a sudden like "i heard about your top 5 alive lists, I wanna give my own list", they were like OK, it was on the Saigon mixtape lol

In that case maybe Q-Tip has truly lost touch with what is dope if that is his top 5 but saying that his opinion on mc's most likley changes constantly like any other person so say we should just cut him some slack and not judge him so harshly.

You was on some crybaby shit though. Why you care if I'm dissapointed with Q-Tip? And breakin you down to the form of a bitch could constitute my third "dart". I said "no homo". You gotta come with somethin else if you thinkin about clownin me.

True, but Masta ace, mf doom, RA the Rugged man aint the best rappers in the game. Don't get me wrong i like these guys the got game, but come on? to metion these guys as the best.... everything is opionated. Dont think im going at u GRIM. But evryone has a list of top whatever and when some doest agree with soem ones list eveyone starts freeking out. Hating aint cool any more.

I think it's of course a main reason!!!


The Top 5 is his opinion, in my opinion only Nas & Ghostface would be in my Top 50!

Jada, hmmm...some good stuff, but not so good.

Saigon, maybe in 2/3 years, if he has more stuff out.

Jay-Z, I don't like him...

12-07-2006, 07:24 AM
im gonna break some hearts here on the corp and say this.........ghostface is the one that doesnt fit in that list imo.
never been a ghost fan.

and that list really looks like he meant the top 5 mc's in heavy rotation (for lack of a better term) these guys have been putting out albums/mixtapes over the last years.
so i dont think he truly means 'living' mc's' cus than he would've sure as hell have given props to rakim,bdk and them....

I honestly don't give a shit who his favourate mc's are and the fact that people have been bitching about who he chose for three pages just shows how retarded some people are.

most mc's from the golden era have a skewed opinion on hip hop anyway.

i guess its probably because growing up they were into soul and R&B rather than hip hop.

i remember in several interviews, gza and ghost saying that they dont listen to hip hop at all.

and meth said that the main artist he was feeling currently was young joc.

why should fans care about mc's favourite albums?

Favourate albums and favourate mc's are entirely different things. I would be more interested in knowing a rappers favourate albums because it tells what sort of hip hop influenced him.

im saying apart from recent mc's, wu and others weren't really influenced by any hip hop. maybe the classic early stuff, but they are inovators who came with their own style. the same can be said for q-tip to some extent.

I knew what you meant first time I was just saying the thread would be worth all the bullshit debate if he was naming his favourate albums rather than mc's.
