IMO he top 5-8 His contributions to the game as a whole need to be taken into consideration. This is one of the only dudes I can think of in hip-hop or rap whohas a huge mainstream following and respect from backpackers and elitists. (IMO) As a producer, rapper, and character, he's basically been the face ofhip-hop since Late Registration. His first album only dropped 5 years ago and he's made it ok to not rap about drugs and violence. Discuss..

My bad for not having paragraphs on the post, I'm in my bb and couldn't tell.

Well here the thing, people put Pac up top 5 but imo, Kanye has a stronger library and stronger albums as a whole than 2Pac.

And I'm a HUGE 2Pac fan.

People take his whole character into consideration when they rank him top 5. I'm sayin why can't they do the same for Ye? Especially because Ye hasproduced hella records and jumped on hella features.

I've never liked anybody's music and approach more. So, #1...

(This is not his rank in the "Greatest Rapper" discussion. But as a person making music, he's #1)

As a rapper he might not even make my top 50 but I'd say for now yea cuz his early work was good and entertaining. As an artist he'd make my top 30-40,I happen to not like 808s much and Graduation was slightly disappointing but overall from a musical standpoint it wasn't a complete fall off

he's not top anything; if i tried to rank him, i would lose count.

Ye point blank top 10. If he comes out with a album of him spitting like College Dropout on that 3 stacks "I've done a bunch of no rap but musicstuff, but trust when it comes to rapping I'm still a force" (i.e any verse he did since idlewild[which I still like]) then man he will be top 5 doa.

If my @+!. Ye aint never did that and I doubt he's capable of it at this point in his rap career. When was this $##%% ever a force in rap?Lets keep it real ppl were impressed cuz they thought he was solely a producer. As a stand alone rapper his rhymes is above average with a clever entertainingwit to it at times more so before he got on than his 1st two albums.

So now we're doing this rating %$+! based off of artists' hypothetical deaths?

This ranking rampage has been out of hand for awhile now, but this is just stupid.

i don't really do rankings, but most definitely ranks higher as an artist than he does as a rapper.
