Nas vs. Ice Cube

Oh wait..

2Pac vs. Notorious B.I.G.
Nas vs. Eminem

Pac and Biggie are a toss up for me depending on day, but Pac's discography is too deep (Me Against the World, Thug Life and 7 Day Theory being at the top).

Re: WF GOAT Rapper Tournament Round 4 (FINAL FOUR)

Gonna go for:

Biggie over Pac
Em over Nas

Completely truthful answer? Those two are the ones I'd listen to most. None of those guys have more than two records I'd listen to, so I've discounted discography as a whole. With the exception of arguably Nas, they've all made an enormous impact on the mainstream, so I've put that factor aside. I've put a lesser amount of worth in pure talent, seeing as guys like GZA, Big L, Pun and Rakim are out and its basically a popularity contest at this point (is there a vbookie for Pac winning?). So yeah, its ultimately who I'd rather listen to, I don't think any of Pac's records are flawless, even though you could make a ridiculous best-of cd, and I only really like Illmatic by Nas. It is what it is.

If the opponents were the other way around, I'd have probably taken Big & Pac as my picks, even though I guess it wouldn't fit into the way I chose this round, so I know my pick for the final at least.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Neither Eminem nor Jay-Z should be in the final 4. I was disappointed that Rakim didn't make it but since he was going up against Biggie I knew that he wouldn't make it. Same for Ice Cube who had better material than Eminem.

Thank you Edge.

How does Rakim have more of a claim than Jay? Yeah, dude's a pioneer, but that 8 year gap after The Master followed by the whackness known as Seventh Seal hurts his stock in a major way.

Jay-Z has a bunch of albums but about 5 of them are really that good. The rest are garbage for the most part with a few good songs. Also Jay is one of the most one dimensional rappers I've listened to. He 99% of the time talks about himself and with such a huge discography, it gets boring. For the Rakim comparison, I'd say quality over quantity. Sure, The R's post-Eric B stuff aren't all that hot but at least the amount of trash he has is a very small amount whereas Jay's is full of pop bullshit.

Jay should have definitely not made it this far (specially not ahead of Pac) so I'm glad he's out. It should have been Pac, Nas, Scarface & Cube out of those that made it. Wouldn't have minded any of the 80s legends like Rakim, BDK, Kool G Rap and Chuck D either but yeah...
