Jay-Z

We’ve been having very heated discussions here in the DrJays.com office over the best rapper alive.

Our college-aged interns are convinced it’s Lil Wayne, whereas those of us in our twenties say that’s blasphemy and Jay-Z is the man.

We want you guys to join in on the debate and let us know who you think it is?

  • Andralena says:

  • J-hood-89 says:

    Nasty Nas, no doubt.

    NOBODY could fuck wit Nas

    “little wayne” AINT SAYIN NOTHIN.

    But out of HOV and wayne………Jay-z …no agrument bout dat.

  • NY Babii! says:

    wow.
    & that comment about new yorkers hatin lil wayne, NOT TRUE
    personally, i like lil wayne, its just that he’s not the best.
    (MY OPINION)
    his rhymes are mostly about puns.
    I think Nas, KRS1, Lupe, Kanye, & Jay-z……okay forget Jay-Z.
    the rest of them, got my vote lol

  • A.D.B. says:

    Nas, Talib Kweli, Hell Rell, Jay, and Young Buck.

    Nas: He has been a mainstay in the game and is truly one of those rappers who can talk a conversation on a song and it will still be good. He thinks outside the box and feeds a need that other mainstream rappers dare not touch.
    Talib: He is a serious dude and takes you through a metaphorical roller coaster on every song.
    Hell Rell: Dude can rhyme! Although he is mostly underground, his music is something I would choose over “Lollipop” any day simply because he is like a Wayne who grew up in a real project, doesn’t rap while on drugs, speaks coherently enough for me not to have to worry if he might pass out before the end of the song, and he has some SERIOUS punchlines that Lloyd Banks and alot of other freestylers can’t touch. He should have at least been nominated.
    Jay-z: When he isn’t talking about how rich he is, he is someone who we as a people can relate to and he leaves us wanting to learn more about him. Basically, he deserves a big throne, and if I were him, I would have slapped Wayne across the mouth, sending him home to Baby to kiss his booboos.
    Young Buck: If you only listen to mainstream, you are being fed garbage. Most people who think of Buck think of “Shorty Wanna Ride” and “Get Buck”. Yet if you buy the album, you find a completely different person who can tell a story as good as Pac could. His songs make you think and impress upon your brain feelings, even if you’re not paying attention to the song. He is truly one of the most underrated rappers and deserves to be in T.I.’s place any day. He represents an area that is only known for 3 6 fagia. He skips through their bullshit and paints a true picture of what it is. .

    Last of all, you should be ashamed of yourselves for those who follow mainstream and the radio only. The radio repeats the same songs every 3 hours, so its all the same crap that the 14 year old white girls want to listen to. Dig deeper and you will find GOLD, a realm where once you discover it, you will never go back.

    1 more thing on my advice to hip-hop: we need two genres of rap: one for the club songs so all the white bitches will be happy while they wait for their moms to pick them up afterschool. THE OTHER, REAL GENRE where no bitch with one hit single for ringtone sales can take over. And we need to enforce this so that there is a BET1 and a BET2, each for the specific genres. There should be two radio stations, one playing Soulja Boy crap and the other playiing Nas. Until that day, rap will be on life support, waiting for the embarrassment to go away. NO MORE GAY RAP. NO MORE STUPID TEEN SHITS THINKING THEY’RE HARD BECAUSE THEY LISTEN TO V.I.C. AND APPROACH YOU LIKE THEY KNOW WHY RAP WAS CREATED. AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO NEED TO BE EXTINGUISHED FROM WALKING THE EARTH. THEY CAN GO LISTEN TO THEIR SHITTY EMO MUSIC OR WATEVER!!!!!!!

  • Street Prophet says:

    Over 2.5 Milli sold. Personal opinions don’t mean shit because everybody has one. You gotta look at the numbers being put up because that is a direct reflection of who the people feel are the best. As much as I hate to say it, Lil Wayne is currently the best rapper alive. If anybody else was better then they would’ve put up better numbers because the people would’ve supported them. Facts are facts, Wayne’s album got bootlegged 2 weeks before it dropped and he still broke records. Personally, I’m a 3 Stack fan but I can’t deny a fact. Call his fans what you want but they are in abundance and they support him. I salute the dude cuz he grinded to get where he’s at and he deserves it.

  • WeezySucks says:

    street prophet ur an idiot 2. if u talk about albums being sold 50 cent would kill lil wayne. but the fact is they both suk. u can say hes the most popular rapper but his lyrics r shit and wack

  • j-blood says:

  • j-blood says:

    niggas kill me with 50 he pray on the weak.he just lucky a lil weezy or a T.I. had’nt went after him yet,cuz he is not blessed with that pen and paper enough to handle those downsouth kingz.and as far as the west is concerned well yall don’t even count no more. tupac been dead for 12 years with westcoast rap. down south run dis

  • j-blood says:

    anybody thank different please put your lame ass opinon on here and talk about how those old ass niggas ran the 90′s.well it’s 2008 and it’s all about the south

  • WeezySucks says:

    lil waynes lyrics r fuckin trash. canibus kool g rap rakim or an wu-tang member would comletely rip him in a battle.

  • eminem4life says:

  • REALJIMJONES says:

    You can’t leave out Andre Nickatina, Mac Dre, Equipto, Smoov-e, all INSANE bay are rappers.

    Devin the Dude ain’t too shabby either.

    Faggots saying eminem or lil wayne is the BEST RAPPER ALIVE need to get the fuck out.

  • DJ says:

    The Game is the best most are killing hip hop keep it alive

  • corbin says:

    T.I. the best rapper cause can’t nobody else spit like him and hers a comment eminen said about him. It’s definitely T.I.’s year. Eminem wasn’t joking when he said T.I. is currently the best rapper in the biz. We couldn’t agree more Em.

  • Fantom says:

    I really don’t know anymore. A year ago I’d say Jay-Z without a second thought, but he fell off hard since, biting Wayne’s flow, making those god-awful experiments with auto-tune and completely losing anything interesting to say (okay, he says he got swagger, I basically know that since I first started listening to him eleven years ago).

    I dunno. Seems to me like there’s really no one worth listening to anymore.

  • Ridgeway225 says:

    Yall check out Kevin Gates from Baton Rouge LA as well as Trill Ent and Lil Wayne. Louisiana is fuckin hot right now yall need 2 fuckin respect us down here ya heard me

  • Mizz Weezy says:

The best rappers are gucci mane lil wayne and kanye west excuse yall, listen to what da fuck these mufu**as b sayin. they rhymes is real as hell, gucci mane b spittin dat murda flow, lil wayne is jusst a born lyricist who got metaphors comin out his ass (no h**o love you boo), nd kanye west, shit wen jay-z made that new song run this town, the radio stations were questionin “did kanye out rap jay-z on his own song?” yes he did, so tha student become tha masta, shit kanye b producin music fa jay-z. i do think jay-z got flow but not like tha 3 rappa’s i named above, get it strait goofies.
