What''s your explanation behind this? And Outkast and Jay are my favorite rappers and it pains me to say this but they got wack albums in theircatalog. Scarface and Ghostface actually have none. And I thought about Nas. Then Nastradamus came to mind and I had to delete his name.

I don't think he's lying though......... I think you can debate that Kanye's first 3 albums were instant 4.5/5's.

It's solid as hell, but I don't know about the greatest.
Dude's still one of the GOATs regardless.

Great discography...best that ever did it imo. there's no doubt in my mind he could have had the best discography if he put out more material

Scarface maybe but the rest of them nah, Rakim has never made a wack album, i can't say that for Jay & Outkast. Ghostface doesn't have any wackalbums, he has few duds but some of his album dont have any replay value to them.

I agree but the reason I give them the edge because their discography's are bigger than Rakim's. If he had 5 to 6 in his catalog i'd probably agreehe has the best overall. Jay got what? One wack album? Maybe 2 if you consider Dynasty wack? Outkast got what? Idlewild? Even with the one wack album therecatalog's still superior.

Can't co-sign this %$+. Kingdom Come? Granted, Hov was on his life is like a beach chair %$+ but the album was hot. Definately doesn't deserve to bementioned with that garbage Vol. 3 %$+. And Blueprint 2 wasn't wack. had they trimmed down the filler the %$+ would've been on par with Blueprint IMO.Speakerboxx/LoveBelow is that %$+. Its different but hot nonetheless. I thought Idlewild was hot but I understand why people think its wack.

The words "concept album must mean nothing to you guys. Idlewild was fire and so was The Love Below. As for Jay-z, BP-2 should have been one cd, not two and it would have been sick. Considering what Eric B andRakim did together, I can see how the OP could say that.
