Can't find that interview where Cube talks about how he ran into Pac throughout his career and he was bigger every time. It's a recent one with Sway. It's a shame they didn't make songs when 2pac was more evolved as an emcee.

Just in terms of personality and such.
Biggie was all flash and arrogant like the Rock
Ice Cube was kind of like the angry faced lonar HHH was
And 2Pac was the charismatic, swearing anti-authority figure Austin was

And Pac can hang with Biggie & Cube.

Not lyrically. I'd go as far as to say that the only thing Pac has on Big or Cube is charisma and the ability to connect with his audience. Has Big in terms of discography and storytelling and probably matches Cube's discography if you're counting posthumous albums.

Maybe in terms of number of albums, but not in terms of quality. Pac never made a Death Certificate or an Amerikkka's Most Wanted.

this, i'd add The Predator too in that category

as great as Pac was, he's got nothing on Ice, there was a period of time were Cube was dropping bomb after bomb with his records, I mean look at his track from 87 to 94

he was the king of the late 80's and 90's

Yeah that's what I meant. Pac doesn't have the quality in his as Cube does in his.

I've seen both lists before, pretty much the same. Any list MTV puts out is automatically discredited. Anyone who puts Jay as a #1 and Pac and Big in the top 5 was probably made by someone who doesn't truly know their shit because people who put Pac and Big at like 2 and 3 or 1 and 2 are likely just bandwagon/propaganda fans.

I mean at the end of the day it's all opinion. I don't have any problem with people putting Pac or BIG at number 1. That could be justified.

No better than the hipster fans who claim Andre 3000 is the GOAT. (Don't get me wrong he's dope).
