22nd Greatest Rap Song of 2010

Jadakiss & Styles P: Top 5 Dead or Alive
These guys are absolutely the second greatest duo in the history of rap music. Yeah, I said it. Lets not wait until they're actually dead to admit it.

  2. Billy & Fame

    are underrated...

    but not the best tho...

    i'd rather listen to any Smif-n-Wessun album before any M.O.P. album

  3. Lets go song-for-song. Nah, you don't want that.

    Besides "Dah Shinin", Smif & Wesson don't have any great albums. MOP have several.

  4. Several?! ... you think so?... ok.. be that as that may

    I was never a fan of M.O.P. albums... their latest LP "Foundation" wasn't too shabby tho...

    their production >>>>> rhymes

    ^^^^^^^

    hmmm... I've been meaning to post something on this. I have an opinion but I gotta get my thoughts together. Probably address this concept next year.

    "The Foundation" is by far their worst album. It was still decent though.

  6. Ghetto Warfare
    Marxmen Cinema (as The Marxmen)
    Mash Out Posse
    St. Marxmen

    ^^^^^

    Alright, I lied. "The Foundation" is better than the above albums IMO. But I don't really consider those real MOP records. lol In my mind their discography jumps from "Warriorz" to "The Foundation".

  7. ^^ Exactly

    EVERYTHING prior 2001 was Classic... yep

  8. Mobb Deep and Outkast would get a look in before styles and Jada. That said should they be in the same bracket as groups?

    Never been a huge MOP fan so Smif N Wessun for Dah Shinin' alone get the nod for me.

  9. A group and duo are two different things to me. Clearly Outkast and Mobb Deep are two of the greatest groups ever. But those guys don't go back and forth enough to be better duos than Jada & Styles. I'm talking about when two minds are basically thinking as one, opposed to just feeding off each other (which most great groups do). I'm talking about finishing each other's thoughts etc. For example:

  10. HL I cosign you they are the second greatest duo, its not like Nas and AZ have enough material together to be considered.

  11. This song had managed to completely bypass me. Good shit.

    Really wish it was Jada on Double Trouble with Styles instead of Sheek.

    This is true. The quality is there, but not enough quantity.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    I like "Double Trouble" alot, but yeah Styles & Jada is usually always a win.

    "Double Trouble" with Mos and Black Thought is crack also. They were trading bars on there as well.

  21. totally missed this, thanks for posting it. Id def put Jada & SP up there with best duos - like you say its about chemistry rather than just bashing out individual verses. Mobb Deep feel the fuck off ages ago. Jada & Styles have been dropping good stuff since 96 - just a shame its been more in guest spots and mixtapes than their own albums.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @StepOne Thanks for checking it out. I agree with what you said besides that Mobb Deep slander.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ok, maybe not fell off that bad but Prodigy's raps arent anywhere near as sharp as they sued to be.
    You know who did the beat one Jada/SP joint?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nah, I'm not sure who did the beat. Sounds like it could be Alchemist. Good question though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Step one

    I dunno dude, because of the rep associated with P post-Takeover I've avoided most Mobb ish. But literally today I listened to some stuff off of Return of The Mac and dude definitely recaptured some form. "Bang On Em" is a crazy Alchemist beat.

    ReplyDelete
  26. "Return of the Mac", "HNIC 2", and J Love's "The Comeback Kid" are AWESOME projects. Neglecting Prodigy's work post-takeover is criminal IMO. Seriously, who spits shit like this? This is vintage P.

  27. Yeahh Ima defo have to cop at least one of those albums. Still, I dunno whether he did it on purpose, but some of the sharpness of his early delivery is gone.
