I'm saying this as someone who likes Deltron 3030 and Both Sides of the Brain by the way. The guy has certainly put out a couple quality albums, I just don't think in terms of his rapping ability, he stacks up to anyone mentioned in this thread so far.

I think I prefer DOOM overall, but Aesop has better lyrics, and is more consistent.

Hey Sparky, vote DOOM up already. You're making him look bad.

That's a ****e track. If there was ever an argument that Aesop was falling off or inconsistent, this is the thing to reference even if it can be explained away. I still side with Aesop and his stream of consciousness metaphor rhymes, but DOOM is exceptional and I see no true reason to pick one or the other except for fun.

I don't know, the explanation is certainly legit. If anything this should make you like him more, doom never made a soundtrack to some stupid little indie film.



music by aesop at the bottom there, if yall wanna find this film on the internet, please let me know how it is

Ahh, I remember seeing that somewhere but I'm not ****in with it. Good for him or what not, but, one thing I've learned is Aesop Rock has strange tastes. I see eye to eye with him on a lot of his philosophies, but his interests baffle me.

More on topic, one thing I note is I enjoy the beats behind Aesop more than Doom's, and we all know Doom has amazing production. But whether it's Blockhead, Aesop himself, or El-P, production take the cake over DOOM beats 9 times out of 10 for me.

Who is better? MF DOOM or Aesop Rock

Now, I understand that better is a loose concept, so treat your answers loosely

(I have my own opinions on the subject, but wanna hear a few others first because I have exhausted this discussion on Twitter already)

Edit: I am talking about their abilities as a rapper.
Be assured that I frown and will not pit two of my favorites against each other for your loose entertainment.
