Top 25 people in the game that should stop rhyming
 
Top 25 people in the game that should stop rhyming

By Arasia Graham

Disclaimer-This list is not just for naming off garbage emcees because a lot of people would have been named first in addition to some of these people not making a list of that caliber. These are emcees and rappers, you know what……………..JUST READ THE DAMN LIST!

Lil Wayne-Granted, he has gotten better since he first emerged onto the scene but he is like that bad ass kid in class that can do better but opts not too.

Fat Joe-He gave us two classic albums, but amid all of that he jumped the shark with Jealous Ones Still Envy. They stopped being envious after Don Cartagena.

L.L. Cool J-Gifted he is, but like the rather annoying reality shows…his career as an emcee has run its course.

Young Jeezy-Young MC, Young Joc, Young Berg….see a pattern here????

Jay-Z-He said it best himself, “What more can I say?” You have said enough Shawn.

50 Cent-If he spent as much time perfecting his art and less on propaganda, we might just get some good music out of him. Just a side note…don’t ever say I love you like a fat kid love cake, AGAIN.

PDiddy- Just because you can find talent, doesn’t mean you are talented yourself. This is the man that gave us Press Play and Forever. Need I say more?

RZA/Bobby Digital-We need you to bring back that genius that gave us 36 Chambers. This is the classic example of when in Rome do as the Romans do. Sometimes, you should let the Romans do them and stick to what you are good at.

The Game-He focuses so much on other rappers and emcees, I think I am listening to roll call in Hip Hop 101, 7th period. Is it time for lunch???

Memphis Bleek-If you are close friends with Jay-Z and you were signed to Rocafella at its peak and still couldn’t crank out one good verse, it’s time to check the classifieds. I think Dame and em’ could have fit the fee for ghost writing in the budget……Ask Foxy what Jay charges.

Trina-Not one good album yet. Let it go baby, let it go.

Nelly-This is the man that tried to teach us Country Grammar. Was he serious?

Tony Yayo-He is just….wrong.

Will.i.am-We need you to step away from the mic and get behind the boards. Thanks.

Mobb Deep-Ever heard someone say, if it aint broke; don’t try to fix it…..

Rick Ross-Impressive sales does not equal impressive talent. Please reference JLO.

Ja-Rule-When I heard Venni Vetti Vecci, I ignored the obvious channeling you were doing and gave you some credit. But, when the singing kicked in with the bubble gum pop tracks, it was a rap. No pun intended.

Missy Elliott-I love your eccentricity and creative mind but that does not mean that emceeing is your forte. Please refer to Rah-Digga, Lauryn, and Lyte. They will tell you where to go.

Jim Jones-Anyone that is in a crew with Cam’ron and Juelz Santana is garbage by association.

Pharell-Please reference will.i.am

Flo-Rida- These are his lyrics…

“Bending Ghetto booty, playing the ghetto booty on her.
Roll up machilles don’t smoke Arizona
One night stand one night with the clan
One night, one time broke her off 10 grand.
Project all the way gutta all day
Shorty don’t fake she’ll put it in your face
Three stories while them hood rats beg”

……….This verse alone cemented your position on this list. Congratulations.

Snoop Doggy Dog-It seemed like he would have a promising career after blessing the Chronic and Doggystyle but he seemed to get worse through the years. Just when we thought he was redeeming himself, he let us down again. Product endorsements and television shows don’t equate to dope lyricism.

Souljah Boy-Refer to Ice T. By the way, this is a no brainer.

David Banner-Much respect to an educated brother but we need his political and social activism. Nothing more.

Bow Wow-Somewhere he grew but his rhymes didn’t.

maybe because hes a cheesy punchline rapper with mediocre lyrics, overrated production skills and shocking flow.
not to mention an embarrassingly huge ego...ie he wants the bible to be rewritten to include him...

Dmizz 08-25-2008 10:28 PM

My opinion still stands and compared to other rappers with his popularity he is underrated

FireInCairo 08-25-2008 10:47 PM

i would say he is one of the most overrated piles of dog**** ever to have graced hip hop
but of course you are entitled to your esteemed opinion.

Im with you.

And I totally disagree with Hola Hovito. He might be past his prime...but even when not at his prime..he's faaar faar better then most.

Young Jeezy in the same sentence as Young MC? Call it nostalgic appeal, but I've always liked Stone Cold Rhymin', whereas Jeezy is just plain awful.

Well, I don't think you can really defend Graduation, but there's some dope tracks on his first two albums.

how can one of the biggest names in the rap scene be underated? he gets more hype than almost anyone out there, thanks to a real talented praise worthy rapper aka jay z.

i agree that jay z should hang it up though. i was so impressed by his talent, vision, and lyrical ability to write songs with meaning as opposed to "i got rocks, i got shinny cars, i got all the hoes, im a pro, im at the biggest show, everyone likes me, i drive around so nicely" type **** you get from all the other talentless industry whipped bitches in the game (cough ja rule cough sean puff daddy pdiddy just diddy dumabass combes cough mike jones cough).

jay z's albums are like story books, and goes on to say in the black album "As fate would have it, Jay's status appears to be at an all-time high, perfect time to say goodbye", and then comes out with 2 more mediocore records.

nothing is more impressive to me than someone who "came i saw i conquered, from record sales to sold out concerts" and quits at the top. but unfortunately jay z did the michael jordan 2nd return from retirement (like he said he wouldnt), the brett farve (where once there was admiration, there is now aggrivation), and threw away a legacy. he will always be great, but nobody gets remembered more than the one who is the best at what they do when they leave 'the game'. jimi was a god, but the reason he is a legend is because he had 3 critically aclaimed albums and ended his career (albeit not by choice) on the TOP. everyone would seriously be blowing weezer right now if they stopped making music after the green album.
