TI's good, yeah, but better than Jay Z? Nah. Kanye's not better than any three of them though. Creative in his beats and sometimes in his lyrics, yes, but just not as good. I feel Wayne has more creative lyrics most of the time, as in word play and whatnot. That's how I feel about Wayne in general, really, though.

Kanyes a polarizing figure. I think he's better than Wayne and T.I., he's clearly not as good as Jay-Z.

Kanye is creative, but his lyrics are alright. Beats are better.

Jay ows all, but T.I. used to be really good, His first too albums were f*cking brilliant, but Paper Trail is just really really boring, with no creative lyrics whatsoever.

T.I. has always been mediocre, Jay has been washed up for a while now, and Lil' Wayne can only rap in the minds of 14-17 year old white girls.

Oh and Kanye is a pop artist. Always has been, always will be.

The cat has left the ****ing bag.

Kanye has always been an average lyricist. He's been getting worse each release. But I do like his first 2 albums.

The Grammys (and other big award ceremonies) are just the various industry's heads getting together and having a party, patting each other on the back. Although it must be cool to win and be accepted by the elite, and the resulting attention very useful, the awards shouldn't be considered any kind of real benchmark as to what is hip or artistic. These selection committees are all so narrow-minded and just focus on putting together a show that will have high ratings, not necessarily great content. Oscars, Emmys, etc...all the same.

That is true, gopal. Though I think the Academy Awards have gotten it a lot more right than the Grammys, in terms of nominating/awarding works that were big critical hits and garnered decent acclaim. I mean, Celine Dion not only was nominated or, but won Album of the Year at one time. Then again, it doesn't say it
s *Best* Album of the Year, so...

Just one example of many through the years. It's getting better, but lots to make up for.
