  • Xzibit..Top 20?

    Me and my buddy were arguing over this. He is a more what I call "mainstream" hiphop fan (G-Unit, Game, Kanye West, etc). I'm into pretty much everything, but honestly don't buy much junk like 50 Cent and the like.

    He was saying that Xzibit is Top 20 of all time, and I said he's definately not.

    The guys I listed to be better than him (take in mind these were off dome) were:

    Eminem
    Jay-Z
    Nas
    Biggie
    Pac
    Big L
    Big Pun
    Chino XL
    Budden
    Cassidy
    Fabolous
    Common
    Talib Kweli
    Mos Def
    Pharohe Monch
    DMX
    Game
    Gangstarr
    Jadakiss
    KRS One
    LL Cool J
    Method Man
    Ghostface
    Rakim


    ^Those were all that came to mind at the time, and the ones I mentioned in the convo. He proceeded to say that Pun, Kweli, Ghostface, Pharohe Monch and Chino XL were all DEFINATELY NOT better than X, which I think is ridiculous.

    Any opinions?

    Personally I prefer Xzibit to Cassidy, Fabolous, The Game & Jadakiss (not that any of them are bad), and maybe one or 2 others are dubious.....
    But I prefer (off the top of my head):
    Tonedeff
    Aesop Rock
    Celph Titled
    Louis Logic
    Cage
    Deacon The Villain
    Mr. SOS
    Vakill
    Del Tha Funkee Homosapien
    Ice Cube
    GZA
    Redman
    Raekwon
    Inspectah Deck
    Tech N9ne
    and a few more.
    I might put him as a top 20 mainstream rapper tho.

        I'd say he doesn't know who these guys are.

          ^He knows Kweli, we went to see him in concert together. But I'd say he hasnt even heard a track by Chino or PM. He probably heard Still Not A Player from Pun, or Twinz or sumthin along those lines.

            Xzibit »»»»»» Cassidy
            »»»»»» Fabolous
            »»»»»» DMX
            »»»»»» Game
            »»»»»» Jadakiss

            If you listen to his first album, You'll see that Xzibit was a pretty good rapper :O... but he is not on my top 20

                    Now that's just ridiculous. Check out Mood Muzik 2.

                      It's not ridiculous. I've checked it out and I wasn't blown away. Everyone thinks Budden is so amazing, but I really do not see anything special whatsoever. He's put out one album compare to Xzibit's 5 albums. I'm not saying all his albums were amazing but a majority were and some even call them classics. Whereas Budden's one album was mediocre and he has failed to establish himself as a groundbreaking artist, only releasing a series of mixtapes, which I don't find that great...

                        Xzibit is by no means a "groundbreaking" artist. NWA, 2Pac, Biggie, Puffy and Eminem are "groundbreaking" artists.

                        The majority of X's 5 albums weren't "amazing". At The Speed Of Life and 40 Dayz And 40 Nightz we're 3.5 mics imo..the rest 3 at best. Weapons Of Mass Destruction wasn't all that great.

                        I take on board the fact that Budden has only released 1 mediocre album, but you gotta know that X has been around way longer than Joey.

                        In current status i.e lastest release, the idea that X precedes Joey in any kind of list is unfathomable to me.

                              Yes, seriously. Big, Puffy and Mase were groundbreaking in the fact that they kicked off the whole "bling", "get your shine on" era in the 90's.
