Pac / Kanye aren't really comparable to me.

And what's with Combat bringing up Pac every second page? lol

I'm a fan too but come on.

College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
In terms of skill, they're about the same, although I'll give Pac the edge for his flow. For consistency, imo Kanye has never put out an album as good as Me Against the World, and Pac has never put out anything as bad as 808s.

while Pac's lyrics are brilliant, he's a legend for his personality and his philosophy on life

not saying that he was wack, Pac is Pac when it's all set and done, he was too dope, but honestly i'd put at least 5 rappers ahead of him


off topic :

Eiht, Spice1 = GOATs of gangsta rap (IMO)

Scarface is among the GOATs of gangsta rap. He actually didn't glorify the lifestyle and rapped about wanting to get people out of it.

Your half right. Spice 1 is one of the GOATs of Gangsta Rap but Ice Cube is THE GOAT of Gangsta Rap. Cube & Scarface is where any conversation on gangsta rap begins.

I'd put Scarface over Cube with the quickness.

In terms of overall discography, longevity, and consistency, I'd absolutely go with Face. From like the mid 90's on, Face has been way better than Cube.

But at their absolute peaks? Cube's peak was higher and his best material is better than Face's. So it really depends on how you look at it, IMO.

IMO Cube is the GOAT rapper overall

but Cube's best hits was when he was rapping about racism and police violence , not gang sets and AKs

you could see my point when comparing Cube's first two albums (AMW and Death Certificate) where he was talking about black struggles to his fourth album (Lethal Injection) where he was more about being a gangbanger, which didn't fit him at all and the album didn't make it like the first two


no love for MC EIht ? dude had a sick flow :
