    I was thinking about this earlier. This is not really intended to be a comparison as much as it's me just want to hear your thoughts and opinion on this and be enlightened.

    We all know how great and incredible prime Em (2000-2003) was. He was untouchable. But that's not the discussion.

    I have heard this statement being thrown around here and elsewhere on how Prime Eminem style of music won't be so appealing or won't even work nowadays, due to how times have changed and how different the music industry is and possibly that could be true.

    Whether they are as big or not due to the reason mentioned above or any other, Do you think there are currently rappers/Artists out there that are better or sound better than Prime Em? Name some.

    Not talking about numbers, but I'm talking about in terms of the choice of music and how it sounds (beats, melodies etc), bars, lyricism, flow etc.

    Discuss.

    prime em is probably a top 10 rappers of all time, pure talent
    but his discography really can't compare to biggie's, jay's, ghostface's, moob deep's, cube's, snoop's, etc. mmlp is no supreme clientele... not even close... kinda like young thug (and maybe lil wayne), his discography doesn't reflect the charisma and talent he once had

    right now I'd say danny brown, denzel curry and jpegmafia are arguably as good as prime em, but they are so different that it's a weird thing to say
