Re: WF GOAT Rapper Tournament Round 2
LL is one of the most under-appreciated greats in hip-hop, like Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap. Most don't realize he paved the way for solo artists as he was the first to prove that solo rappers can make full albums (Kurtis Blow was mostly a one-hit wonder with all due respect) and succeed. And it's not just that, the music he released from 1985-1995 was mostly classic stuff. I don't like most of his shit from the last decade but I understand why he has "sold out" and gone soft now that he's living the dream life.
And that "Rampage" verse is just ILL. Don't know why he constantly stayed behind the curtain, though. And correct me if I'm wrong, but that was the first time somebody picked him for a guest verse, right?
