Kanye West is a prime example of why I started this thread - to find stuff to get away from that shit.
Sorry to bring all the Kanye vibes, but you guys are definitely rating him based on teh stuff they play on the radio.

I'm gonna try to not be a dick on the internet so much, it is just really true that I think Kanye is a joke in every aspect of the scene except maybe when he was producing behind them and nobody knew who he was. His vocal style and lyrics are garbage, and by "canned as beans" I mean it sounds like it may as well be Pitbull or Ke$ha on the track.

As far as the biggest name out there in the last 5 years, that's a laugh except when you count how he got a little more famous for being a jerk to Taylor Swift and now he bangs Kim K. Wheezy's got him beat easy(famous-wise, way more recognizable songs too), and it wouldn't be hard to throw down like 20 producers who do better music just starting with Rza, DJ Premier, Dr Dre, and Timbaland...

I'm not some kind of music snob and I listen to some pretty poppy stuff when I'm in the mood, not to mention death metal, classical, and some country. You just should not have said Kanye West (he is probably a nice guy who is really sorry when he's a jerk and I'm the bigger asshole but too bad I don't think people who live on that level in this world deserve second chances - same goes to Chris Brown and don't tell me he can dance because thats a fucking laugh too).

Kanye West deep throats donkey cock. The only positive contribution he's ever made was bringing us Kid Cudi.

Lol, yes Pitbull and Kesha sample soul music like Kanye does. That may be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. This and this sound exactly like this or this.

Li'l Wayhe has twice as many albums released and only a tiny bit more sales.
Kanye has released 6 albums with 12 million sales and 30 million downloads in the US. Wayne has 10 albums with 13 million sales and 37 million downloads. You can't compare them.

I don't give a fuck if Kanye is the biggest dick in the world, he makes some of the best music in the world. I'll keep listening to my Kanye while you guys can keep scrounging around for some "real" hiphop.

Cool, I think we are all in agreement, we just had to take the long way on the internet

Sales is a terrible way of judging quality. Justin Bieber sells a shit ton of albums. Is that "quality"?

McDonald's sells a shit ton of hamburgers. Are they "quality"?

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.
