Re: Unpopular Music Opinions
Nas is the GOAT hip hop artist
(alot of people think this as well, but the majority is clearly 2pac and Eminem)
Method Man is the best Wu Tang Clan member in terms of skill
(usually Ghostface or Raekwon get the nod)
Hip Hop Is Dead wasn't a bad album
Reasonable Doubt is Jay Z's best album and a top 5 hip hop album
Hopsin/Childish Gambino are both corny/forced in 90% of their songs, although they have some great ones.
Eminem fell off after 2002 (Although Bad Meets Evil was a good album, even though I think 5'9 out shined him)
Doggystyle isn't a classic, and Snoop Dogg is the most overrated hip hop artist ever.
The Game fell off after Doctors Advocate
Schoolboy Q is better than Kendrick Lamar
Curtis by 50 Cent isn't a bad album. Not even close to Get Rich Or Die Tryin or The Massacre, but it wasn't Before I Self Destruct/Encore level bad. 6-6.5/10 album
It can be argued that Kanye West has 5 classic albums
American Gangster will be called a classic as time passes
Vol 2: Hard Knock Life is not a classic and Jay Z's 3rd worst album behind Blueprint 3 and Kingdom Come
Ready To Die hasn't aged well at all, and the production sounds dated. Life After Death sounds alot better today.
The Recession by Jeezy was better than TM101
sidenote: Nas killing Jay Z with Ether isn't an unpopular opinion. It's one of the GOAT diss tracks with the only competition being Hit Em Up and No Vaseline. Yeah, Jay won by signing Nas and is worth about 10 times more than him. But Nas RIPPED Hov with Ether.
