You can think 808s wasn't a masterpiece, that's an acceptable position I suppose, it wasn't for everyone. However, MBDTF is pretty much unassailable as an all timer.

MBDTF was a fantastic album.  One of the best of that year.  I think Late Registration is one of the best album ever made in any genre.

 

Kanye has a talent for creating ambitious narrative and musical themes that I don't think any other hip hop artist can match.  He's also got a knack for capturing amazing and memorable feature performances from other hip hop artists that are better than their solo work.  I'm thinking people like Niki Minaj and Paul Wall and The Game.

So random...I heard this song a few weeks back and I was blown away by the hook.  Saw the vid and had NO clue this was the dude from Rae Sremmurd.  I can do w/ out French rapping, but man...Swae Lee has got a fantastic voice.  Banger right here...video is beautiful visually also.

DMX ruined his career, out of that list though, I have to agree. 

Master P sucked. 

Name a P song of impact. Not on his roster him. 

If you want a country rapper that had impact you have to start with Wayne, Baby, Luda, etc. 

Baby gets more credit. 

Luda has better individual tracks.

I was thinking more of P's influence on rap and hip-hop in general, not necessarily his rapping skills. as a rapper, he would be last on that list

What's this list about? 

 

I see a bunch of sub-par rappers who had a HUGE influence in one way or another in their primes.

Production-wise, it's a masterpiece.  Lyricism, nope. 

 

I actually think the album is overrated, TBH. 

 

A lot of hype because it's Kanye, but when looking at the overall product, I think it falls short.  I wouldn't dare mention it as one of the best all-time.

That was the main gist of it.  They were all massively successful in their time.  Average.  I will say that a few were unique in their cadence.  Ludacris' style, with how he emphasizes certain syllables is remarkable.  DMX, while basic as ****, had a certain grimeyness that captured audiences.

 

No way are any of the above on my list for goat though.
