    After finally listening to Dedication 6, D6: Reloaded, and now Vizine, I'm starting to think Weezy is reclaiming his title as the best rapper alive. I still don't know if he's really overtaken Kendrick in my eyes just yet, but he's pretty d--- close. It's amazing how much he's improved recently, reminding me of my middle school days when Wayne was hands down the best & most popular rapper around.

    I feel like he fell off incredibly hard tbh. But I'm thinking he's back.

    no, this isn't 2006/07

    I like Wayne, but he'll never get to that potential he was at back then

    Even the '99-2002 Wayne was better than the one we have now

    He is still great at times though. I don't think he's the best alive right now but especially Vizine was a great song.

    if he can put together an entire project as good as Vizine then he's definitely back in the conversation. not too late for a 2nd weezy wave.

    He was more consistent back in the day because he was younger and hungrier. This is true. But to be honest, his 1999-to-2001shit was kinda hit or miss for me. His "Renegade" freestyle is still Top 10 Best Song WithIn His Catalog though. And that's from 2002 (Squad Up: Volume 4 Mixtape, I believe.).

    Rakim is kind of a weird pick for best alive. I mean I love Ra, but he hasn’t dropped anything in this decade and hasn’t really been on top form since 18th Letter.

    I get that but still, just because his time has passed doesn't mean what he did in the past matters less.
