Rap has gotten so weak in the last decade. When the guy most consider to be the best rapper in the game was a former CO that is now a self-proclaimed king of coke and he looks like the fuging michelin man... poo is fuged up.

Drake is talented, but there is no real creativity in what he does outside of his lyrics, OCCASIONALLY. Mainly his punchlines. Outside of those, his music is the typical sold out, pop-friendly, industry crafted stuff that each generation of music has. A guy that cross-appeals to several different genres and is mainstream friendly. That's an industry-backed artist...

Music right now is a joke when those guys are at the forefront. The best rappers out there are mostly the same guys it was 10 years ago... Guys like Kanye, Jay, Mos, Game, Fabolous, etc. There's a couple promising artist - A$AP, Big Sean, Cudi (kind of), Wale (many would disagree but I think he's gifted), many would throw Meek in there, but most everything else rap-wise is corny and hype-generated.

To me the most promising artists out there are probably guys like Miguel and The Weeknd. They are kind of pushing the boundaries and blurring the genres while maintaining their creative license and identity in doing so... their sound is new and yet, reminiscent at the same time.

But, that's just my opinion... music is so subjective but I can promise you, poo has went downhill over the last 5 years or so. The quality is just so bad. Just like television has changed over the same course of time (the shift to heavily doctored "reality" TV, the tendency to fake things until people believe it, dumb is cool, etc.), music has mirrored that shift.

My generation came up with guys like Pharrell/Neptunes, Timbaland, and the like as they came to the forefront of music... whereas now, your "big producers" are nonames making beats on bootleg protools out of their mom's house. And it's empty... all it is, is pretty much "chant music" for artists who lack true creativity and/or flow... here's looking at you chief keef.

But again, thats my opinion... and you know what they say about those.

I've never heard or seen anyone claim Rick Ross is the best rapper out there.

I have, plenty.

Mostly same guys that proclaimed wayne was the greatest thing since sliced bread... which I also find laughable.

I'll show my age finally, no one in Hip hop has yet to catch up with late 90's, early 2000's atmosphere.

Mainstream been playing catchup ever since.

Also if you haven't heard it yet, check out madvilliany. Another superb hip hop cd.
