I agree, that was just in reference to popularity more than anything. Kanye has been more popular than L'il Wayne and every one else for the past 5-10 years and that was the easiest way to show it.


Some non-Kanye rappers that are good:

Lupe Fiasco - first two albums are great, last two not so great. Check out the The Coolest

Kendrick Lamar - already mentioned, but everything he has done so far has been pretty great.

MF Doom - Madvillainy is really good along with MM..Food. Check out All Caps.

J. Cole - his first two mixtapes were good (Friday Night Lights and The Warmup). Check out Premeditated Murder.
