He likes the music he makes, he doesn't really have too much potential.

I didn't say he doesn't like the music he makes...but he could do so much better. I think he is conforming his music to mainstream interest to gain the most profit. His unique style and use of diction gives him a tremendous amount of potential. He is the last guy you want to freestyle against, and he can remix over anything. That is why he is still gets a tremendous amount of respect from the underground.

Can somebody point me toward a rapper more stylistically versatile than Weezy? I really think he's the best in terms of syncopation and overblown personality, and where would rap be without those two things?

Busta Rhymes, Andre 3000, Missy Elliott are a couple to come of the top of my head.

That's a good answer, I think. I'll have to look into those three and see whether or not I agree with it.

Here are some rappers with over the top senses of humor. I'm not sure this is what you meant:
The Beastie Boys
Public Enemy
Aesop Rock
Wu-Tang Clan
Dr. Octagon
Deltron 3030
