    How I feel...

    top 10 DOA is reserved for those artists
    who made it in before hip hop died

    all these new niggas got their own separate
    era. its very similar to how I compare MJ & Bron
    different eras. don't wanna get off topic

    so no he aint in THE top 10 DOA discussion
    yet, but he close, and he's definitely top 5 on
    the new list

    He has 4 albums....2 classics and 2 really solid albums imo

    Thats better than a lot of rappers who are considered in the top 10

    LL Cool J has two classics and two really solid albums. The difference is that his career kept going to the point where people stopped checking for him.

    Exactly.... Everybody is rated higher in their primes but what makes you top 10 is how your career plays out Kdot still in the prime of his career if he go on a run of 5 below avg albums is he still top 10??? He needs his career to play out or to die B4 we can put him in the top 10

    Obviously he's been around long enough to be in the discussion.

    I think he is.

    If you say him dying puts him on there that don't make sense.

    He has classic and genre defining albums that speak to the times. Now if you said J.Cole then I'd raise an eyebrow but I think Kendrick Lamar is definitely deserving of top 10 DOA.

    Yes.

    4 studio albums - all of them Dope. A lot of the material he released before his first album was good.

    Biggie release just 2 albums, and people swear up and down he's the GOAT ... LOL ... OK (in the Jay-Z "Story of OJ" voice).

    As an 80s Baby (who grew up in the 90s- graduated from high school in 1999), I can somewhat understand why dudes in their 20 and teens have a gripe and want older people to STFU.

    We love kendrick so much because he has no competition. There is a handful of rappers his generation that are respected mc's. He's great but to call him top 10 of all time dead or alive is madness. Not many rappers have released 4 great albums in a row though..

    Big’s talent was undeniable. He could have only dropped mixtapes and I would still put him high.

    I agree. Ready to Die and Life After Death were classics ... And if someone makes material on the same level (or better), I'm going to give them credit...

    And why does someone have to die for people to recognize or fully give props to their greatness ??? Some people talked a lot of shit about 2Pac when he was alive. Fast forward today ... same people on Facebook saying he's the GOAT, posting Pac memes, videos of him making good points about politics and his music.

    And Biggie's 2 are still better than any of Kendrick's 6
