    KRS-One better than Kendrick
    Chuck D miles better than Mac Miller
    I must say though Drake is up there with the best of rappers
    What do you guys think?

    It's hard to compare different eras. Listening back to old s--- from the 80s, you can tell what aged well and what didn't:

    Meanwhile, you can't really do that with current music, because everyone's doing what is popping right now.
    But go back and re-listen to some of the early 2000s music and try not to cringe lol. In 10 years from now, we'll be able to tell which Kendrick album didn't age well and which ones did.

    It's tricky and most of DMC's hits still hold up.

    Lil Flip video is exactly as cringe now as it was in 2004.

    ^^^^ such an awful mod. Someone bothers to give an in-depth opinion to create more discussion and he comes up with this despite taking any and all criticism "way too seriously" #NotMyModerator

    Nah. Better than mongos like future and lil yachty but not Kendrick. Kendrick is like an alien in comparison, cant stand those cheesy 80s bounce flows "and im walking down the STREET and I look down at my FEET, rap is one of the most aging musics due to the technical progression. I cant enjoy that simplistic cringe.
