    I was going through his catalog today and realized how much he's done. Countless above average albums(BW being the exception though it wasn't bad IMO)and 2 classics (Ironman & Supreme Clientele). Lyrically he's always on point and his production is always hot, and if dudes want to start talking aboutswagger, don't even question Ghost's. Add in Wu albums and appearances and the fact he's on basically every damn song on Only Built 4 Cuban Linxand you have a very impressive resume. What do you say?

    it'd be nice to get some explanations rather than simple "no"'s, as for my opinion I don't believe he's the goat but I wouldn'tget mad at someone that thought he was.

    I wouldn't have a problem with anybody who considers Ghost as the GOAT. He's personally in my top 10 of all-time.

    Fixed and Ghostface is top 3. The man has never dropped an album less than 3.5/5 and that includes BPW. Who can say that except Hov.

    Hell no.

    I love ghostface and the wu-tang clan in general, have all his material, and consider myself a big fan... but no.

    There is no way ghostface is up there with dudes like Kool G, Big L, Pun, Biggie.. even NaS for example.

    Like dude said, I'll take GZA over him even.

    ^You say hell no then say L, G and Pun>Ghost?

    Nope.

    All around Ghost is better than them and has made better music.

    Top 10 is a stretch to me. I just don't see what some see in him I guess.

    Oh no not the stone faces!!!!! Have you not realized that you are the one single person that agrees with anything you say? You really think L is up there withhis 1 dope cd and a collection of freestyles? Same deal with Pun. G hasn't been relevant since 4,5,6. Ghost has been going strong for 16 years with waymore quality material.

    Yes. Why did you leave Biggie out if we are talking about L's lack of material ?

    Ghostface is top 25-30. Top 50 if we count underground.

    ^Because BIG had 2 excellent albums, not 1 above average one.
    Top 50 including underground? What you got Vinnie Paz and Outerspace over him??
    You've made yourself the laughingstock of the music forum.

    What [​IMG]

    Big L had 2 excellent albums. Lifestylez > anything biggie has ever done.

    There's a lot more to underground than Paz, Planetary and Warchild.. but give Paz is obviously far better than ghostface. Give Planetary and Warchild sometime to drop a couple more albums and solidify themselves and I'll take 'em above ghostface easily.

    You seriously think ghost step into a cypher with Pun, G Rap, L and not get eaten alive ? Or compare with Vinnie at his prime lyrically ? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
