    Hell no. Dre is the only nigga on EARTH that needs to quit being humble!! GIVE ME A MUTHAFUCKIN ALBUM GOTDAMNIT!!

    He cant though. He dont got it.

    Its like saying MJ should just put on a uniform and get the hornets a ring. But he cant. Dude dont got it no more.

    He don't got it!?



    Foh my nigga, that nigga ain't ever gonna lose it.

    First off, im not gonna act like 3k isnt an elite emcee. He is in the top tier of rappers, his body of work and his greatness cannot be argued. Im also not saying he doesnt drop hot 16s.

    But I meant he doesnt have what it takes to drop a rap album as he himself alluded too a bunch of times. You gonna argue with his own assesment of himself?

    Of course. That's literally what half of us have been doing this entire thread.

    THAT'S the album that tipped it for 3K? The one were he's singing for 98% of the record.

    No. I knew Andre was better than Big Boi back in 94 when I first heard the Player's Ball single, however Big Boi does have flows for days. He's no slouch, and there are tracks like "Sorry Ms. Jackson" and "The Art Of Storytelling" where he got the better of 3 Stacks. Respect due to Big Boi, but Andre is better.

    It's hard to say really. Andre's style is more memorable because not many do it as well as he does. Big Boi has more of that southern style that many rappers do even if it's not the same. Still I find myself liking Big Boi's verses over 3000 after multiple repeats of a song.

    I thought SpottieOttie was a push.

    BB was more about life overall and Dre's was more about the nightlife. Both were great and ended VERY memorably....

    "Hey, hey look baby, they playin' our song"
    And the crowd goes wild as if holyfield has just won the fight....
    But in actuality it's only about 3 am
    And three nikkas just done got hauled off in the ambulance (sliced up)/
    Two nikkas done start bustin' (wham, wham)/
    And one nikka done took his shirt off talkin' bout
    "Now who else wanna fuck with HOLLYWOOD COURT!!"



    Can't gamble feeding baby on that dope money
    Might not always be sufficient/
    But the united parcel service and the people at the post office, didn't call you back because you got cloudy piss/
    So now you back in the trap, just that.... TRAPPED!!


    One didn't top the other IMO.

    Because that would be a totally asinine statement to make. Big Boi is immensely dope. I can't say the same for Memph Bleek.

    lol I never understood what people mean about a flow is outdated. Are you saying that he sounded like he was back in the 90s because I'd say that's a good thing.
