i jumped the gun with the Asher Roth thing, 2Pac - never really was a fan, he's good, but not the greatest, Dre made a couple of good beats since Doggystyle, i'd probably get an album if i rounded up the best ones - besides Marshall Mathers LP, which is awesome, and no, i'm not an Eminem fan either, although he did kill everybody on the last 2 BET cyphers.....Southernplaya..& ATLiens are fantastic albums, after that...meh...........what can i say, i like Kris Kross & Da Brat, lol..........i freely admit i'm a Britney Spears fan, and would honestly rather listen to her than Nas, most new hip hop for that matter..........and No Limit & Cash Money, while its not my favourite shit, back in the 90's, they were heavy, they made what they made & didn't try to disguise the fact they were ignant as fuck !! lol....Lil Wayne is shit now though !!
the Rae, Ghost & Deck thing, was based on their last albums at the time, which was CL2 - garbage, only 1/2 of it is good in my opinion, i prefer Immobilarity......that horrible r'n'b album that Ghost did, maybe 3-4 songs on there worth anything :/ and i've never been a fan of Decks solo stuff, he can kill guest spots, and the odd solo track, but i dont think he's a solo album guy - although, i would like to see a Deck, U God & Masta Killa album like Wu Massacre - again a terrible album - its a shame when the artwork is better than the record :/
ok, Dilla does have some good beats, but for me personally, he's hit & miss, i just dont think he's as great as everyone make him out to be, but thats just my taste, but then again, theres a helluvalotta other producers out there that people put up on high, and i'm thinking "what, he looped up the inro to a soul song & added drums....i can do that in my sleep" lol....
Nas....in my opinion, Illmatic is clearly his best album, then I Am, then It Was Written, then i stopped being bothered about Nas after Gods Son, but i also like The Firm album & The Lost Tapes too :/
No, it's just clear that Nas has like 4 other at least solid album.. and you say J dilla is a rap producer based upon 2 beat tapes... when he has at least 100 great beats.
And those are just off the first two lines. The shit that came out after Dilla died shits on a lot of people's careers. It Was Written is a great album, God's Son, Stillmatic are both real solid. HHID is good.
It's all opinion for sure but those are bizarre opinions from someone who makes beats.
