I'd say Earl probably has the most talent (other than Ocean), but he (like the rest of OF) is just so out there.
Kendrick's new album is legit but I can't wait for Cudi's new Album. He is just on another level when it comes to other rappers. Easily the best in the game right now.
No way. Tyler the creator is insane. Some of the shit he raps about is crazy.
Also Tech N9ne has to be up there. Love Trch N9ne

GKMC is awesome. I still like Section.80 more, but give me another month and that may change. I think Cudi is good, but I don't think he is the best in the game at all. Personally, I think J Cole is the best out there right now and I don't think it's close.
Are anyone of y'all Macklemore fans? I don't like him as much as some of my other friends do, but I have a feeling he's about to be pretty big.
I wanted to go see The Man With The Iron Fist last night but we ended up doing NG instead. I've been listening to the soundtrack a lot lately and I think RZA killed it. Been jamming this "White Dress" by Kanye for two weeks now.

I love Cudi. Whatever he puts out is this shit. J Cole is damn good too.
Agree to disagree. Almost everyone in the rap community and OF say Earl is the most talented. His mom sent him Samoa for a while so he wasn't making any music, but he came back a few months ago and has been on fire. Here's a new song called "Chum" he dropped yesterday.
This song and its video are absolutely fantastic.

Was literally JUST about to post this. "Chum" is on point.
In addition to the guys I've mentioned earlier, call it mainstream or whatever, but I'm a fan of Drake, Big Sean, Roscoe Dash, and Meek Mill. And then there's artists/groups like 2 Chainz, Future, and Travis Porter who aren't very good lyrically, but they make catchy songs that I still like. I like most Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta rappers. I like that style.
i havent heard that song yet. thats damn good.
Anyone here Chiddy Bang fans?
Hip Hop and House... I'm from the north east so electronic/ house is everything up here
and Dr. Pepper love Chiddy saw them in the basement of a frat house pretty cool.
Love running to "24K of Gold". I wont listen to a whole Big Sean album, but he has some great tracks.
Have you heard the new Meek Mill "Dreams and Nightmares" CD? I've downloaded it but haven't listened to it yet. Lots of artists have been hyping it up on twitter.
My favorite rapper is Jay Electronica. Unfortunately, he hasn't done anything significant since like 2008.
I think he was inspired by the movie The Prestige to produce 3 mixtapes/CD's that kinda of flowed together. He has:
" Act I-The Pledge" The Eternal Sunshine
"Act II-The Turn" Patents of Nobility
"Act III- The Prestige"- The Last Will & Testament Of Timothy Elpadaro Thedford
Eternal sunshine came out around 2008 and i still listen to that a couple times a week. Easily my favorite mixtape on my Itunes. He signed with Roc Nation (Jay Z) a couple years ago. From what I've read, Electronica has finished Act II Patents of Nobility, but Jay Z is withholding the CD because he doesn't have any radio hits. However, Jay Z has also said that this is by far the best album he's listened to in years.
I really suggest y'all check him out this weekend if you haven't heard of him. His lyrics are far and away the best out there.

I just love music in general. I like it all. My phone has a bunch of pretty much everything on it.
Kid Cudi lyrically is not a great a great rapper. However, what he does with his flow, his voice, and just his overall sound makes his music sound so damn good.
Chiddy Bang is rap for middle schoolers.
Always enjoyed this freestyle. Love the instrumental.
After Recording "Waisting My Minutes" For My Upcoming Mixtape [Adam's Case Files: The Mixtape] I Just Threw On Some Old-Ass Beats I Had Laying Around For A Couple of "Yurr's" (Literally) & He Just Went Off. He Was Killin' It For A While Until I Realized, "Hey... I Should Tape This Sh*t," Thus Proving My Genius. *ha* Enjoy & Get Adam's Case Files: The Mixtape And Cop The Album [The Death of Adam] When It Drops. Aight... Love, Peace & Punani! 88-Keys of Locksmith Music, Inc.
I really liked the mixtape Detroit, and I've heard parts of D&N but not all of it. What i've heard is pretty good! I recommend Roscoe Dash's mixtape "2.0". A lot of good tracks on there.
