    He is definitely one of the greats in the game..he has dropped verses some rappers will never be able to match their whole careers

    He was top 5 from 92-99. After that he lost focus in his lyrics. Just like Prodigy, top 5 from 95-99, well at least for me.

    Deck's a legend but he isn't touching Qwel lyrically no matter from which period it is from.

    i WOULD be the brave one to vote NO first in the poll...

    I agree that Deck had dropped amazing versed during his career but he has done so only sporadically and Deck lacks a key element in MCing...charisma. Deck is an amazing technician on the MIC but I feel that he lacks a little bit.

    and that's just talking career-wise. if we're talkin about if we were to put these "all-time greats" in a room to cipher and see who gets off, I'd definitely sponsor Deck (at least, I'd put SOME cash on him to place, not win) but there are too many others (imo) that kill it consistently in all categories.

    Pharoahe Monch
    Redman
    Black Thought
    Method Man
    Ghostface
    Lupe (yeah, I said LUPE!)
    Busta
    Big Punisher
    Lauryn Hill

    I mean, the list goes on of MC's I'd say were all-time greats before I hit Deck.

    who is this "Qwel" you speak of? is he some white MC you made up just to throw in the convo?

    Thinks a Deck clone could be better than the original GOD from Shaolin.

    Add Qwel to that list and I'd be all for it.

    qwel is apparently an 85%er.

    but yeah deck is absolutely an alltime great. dude has way too many classic verses to not be one.

    people who say no will note his album catalog. go listen to any of his albums and tell me deck aint spittin lava. forget the beats, LISTEN TO THE BARS! decks ability to flow to a beat is absurdly underrated. dude can ride a beat as well as anyone. i dont think i have to talk about his lyrical content.

    check out how he bounces on "the road" or on "blast off" or "iron flag". just a few examples.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
