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.
