    Standing a nigga who has never had a solo album next to a nigga who has multiple classics is disrespectful. It's like saying a nigga with world championship talent but no rings is as good as a nigga who has climbed to the mountain top time and time again. We'll never know what would have happened with grant hill because he never got a chance to make it shake in his prime. Dre had chances and just didn't.

    Just because you have the tools don't mean you know how to use em, or use them effectively as you would have if certain conditions weren't met. He's never had a classic without big boi's input. Scarface has made multiple group and solo classics, and has never had a wack official Scarface album in almost 30 years of recording.

    Ya'll niggas outta pocket. Dre dumb nice, but talent don't = substance. Every other rapper that's mentioned in the top 5 has at least one classic album.

    Even Jeezy got a classic. The fact that this nigga think he too good to rap for us, like he get a kick outta tellin us a solo or a reunion is comin just to see everybody get excited then disappear and hop on a remix to keep his name turnin.

    Fuck this dude.

    Top 5 talent though.

    Dre hasn't not put out a solo because he thinks he's too good for it. Multiple people, even Big Boi have said he hasn't put one out because he doesn't think it'd ever meet people's expectations of him. He don't think he's too good he actually doesn't think he'ss good enough

    This is exactly what will happen unless its the masterpiece, and then he wont be able to please everybody cuz niggas gone be mad if he dont rap 100% and other niggas gone be mad if he aint being his usual eccentric self, but its his own fault for waiting so long and letting anticipation and expectation stew for so long.

    Unless...he does a Double album again.
    One rapping, the other singing and doing his experimental thing.
    Or split them hoes up, put out two singles a time and get double the money

    Not gonna happen, he doesn't care anymore.

    Oh yeah Big boi is definitely one of the most underrated emcees ever. He most definitely would get more props if he was in a group with anyone else. He's in that overshadowed by a more charismatic group member list along with Willie D of the Geto boys, Phife from Tribe, Mc Ren, Inspectah deck, and MJG. Niggas that's dope as fuck, but folks overlook em cause of the more popular, talented and or charismatic cat or cats they're in the group with.

    No disrespect to those cats but Big Boi is better than them.

    I don't understand what a solo album from 3K will do for niggas knowing damn well 9 times out of 10 it won't be a "rap" album.

    I dont understand why niggas say he a top 5 or GOAT rapper if he dont drop "rap" albums.
