Man I'm the first to say Biggie gets more credit than he deserves at times, but putting him top 5 is not overrated. He did so much in so little time. His wordplay is so underrated and he made flat out hits. I love Kendrick and all, but what true hits has he had. 30 years from now I'm still gonna go to parties and hear Biggie tracks. I'm not hearing Swimming Pools 5 years from now at parties. Big had it all.
Never understood the whole "bodies of work" argument.
Rappers should be judged on their ability. Doesn't matter if a person has a couple of albums. What was the artist able to do creatively with those couple of albums?
From a technical standpoint, there just aren't too many rappers you can name that were able to do what Big could do. Same w/ 3K.
They should be lauded for HOW THEY RAP. Not how many songs they made.
Basquiat made upwards of around 130 paintings before he died. Should we not mention him amongst Picasso because he made over 50,000?
