  • Question: Who is the best MC from NY right now?

    Remember, just talking pure lyrics and flow... my list goes like this:
    1)Nas
    2)Jay
    3)KRS
    4)Fifty
    5)Talib Kweli
    6)Canibus
    6)Mos Def
    7) Aesop Rock
    8) Guru (if you consider that Gangstarr is based out of NY and not Boston)
    9) Busta
    10)Jada

    Honorable mention: Meth, LL, Red (Jers but has lived in NY for a long time)

    I know everyone has different opinions...and may take issue with Aesop Rock being so high, but this is my list.
    Thoughts and other opinions encouraged.

    1. Mos Def
    2. Cage
    3. Talib Kweli
    4. Jay-Z
    5. Aesop Rock
    6. Nas

    I don't think anyone else is worth mentioning.
    Everyone else is kinda blah right now, especially KRS.

    Not too much coming out of NY that I'm feeling right now

                  6 albums... 4 of which are classic/near-classic... 2 of which are still great... Argueably one of the greatest lyricists ever, with a flow that's at least in the top 3 of all time... Easily better than Tupac who a lot of people claim to be the GOAT and argueably better than B.I.G....

                  You put 50 Cent, Aesop Rock, and Busta Rhymes, not to mention Jada, above Rakim in lyrics and flow, and give mentions to LL, Redman, and Method Man, but not Rakim? And have the nerve to say he's not at least top 10?

                  And you give me that bullshit about what good has he done lately and what has he put out, while you have KRS-1 at #3?? Get outta here...
