There are many contenders for this crown, in my opinion. But the one who walks away as the undisputed champion?
Ghostface, Nas, Raekwon, Mobb Deep, Big Pun
Nobody else tells stories like he does
They complement each other throughout so many of their LPs and tracks.
Raekwon has definitely gone for a more conceptual/story vibe than Ghostface. They're both incredible rappers, with maybe 4 or 5 of the top 20 rap albums of all time.
But I just love Raekwon's gravelly tones for dem gritty street tales. Takes me back to my hard knocks Lincolnshire youth
has the best solo output of all the members I think, Gza coming it at a close second. I like raekwon but never been as drawn to his solo material as everyone else.
More recently someone like Schoolboy Q. Even though sometimes it might seem like too much a caricature his delivery is hard as nails, and he's got the flair to substantiate it.
some duff tracks but when he's on point it's great.
although Ol' Filthy Bugger and Method Guy are both pretty boss.
for a few weeks iirc
something to do with censorship, right? no?
make a difference, shrewbie
