Dude verses most of the time are nothing short of incredible, lyricism, wordplay, freestyle, song making, hooks, I can't really name an area where he lacks. I feel as thought he is given a hell of a lot of props and recognition, but thT he is still under rated because he's from the South and country boys not supposed to spit like that. If he was from New York, I feel like he would be viewed a little higher.

If you're good, you're good....being from NY wouldn't change !+*@ as far as what people think of him. Dude is respected and people know his talent.

Na, I think if he was a solo artist he would be.
But this "GOAT" +!%# is stupid anyway, art is subjective, there is no greatest.

You mean if he was from NY and went to ATL and joined Outkast? I don't really think so. He'd still be overlooked in the beginning of his career and have just about the same amount of recognition now.

If he was from NY and had solo albums, there's a good chance he'd be considered GOAT right after Big passed.

Where he is from has nothing to do with his greatness but if you're trying to gear this argument to popularity then yeah it matters. Of course this only counts for 10-12 years ago. Now it doesn't really matter.

I don't think it makes a difference... People still rank him high either way. Classic after classic with Outkast, its kinda hard not to. I don't think location matters when debating where 3k ranks.

He needs to drop a solo lp.

Son is ranked extremely high off verses in EVERYONE who knows hip hops list. Dude is far from underrated.

I wanna see son drop at least two solo LPs that can be scrutinized like the other great MCs who were either praised or %#*%*# on for their own works.

Difference between that and working under a group name where you're sharing the spotlight, criticism, and creative direction of your works.

Andre 3k being from New York wouldn't eliminate Jay-Z, Biggie, Nas, Cole, Eminem, etc. from having ever existed.

Will it boost his stock? Probably.

GOAT?

Big boi is gonna be tight when dre matches his first week numbers in one day. I think he can drop a low key masterpiece if he actually raps on the joint. Love below doesn't count. That was his 808s/ heartbreaks.
