    Both are phenomenal MCs and rap artists but people forget Talib has consistently dropped top tier verses and nicely put out albums since his debut whereas (not Mos fault) Mos hasn't put much out in his career.
    When comparing the two for me it's about their whole career not their prime. Nobody seems to mention Talib Kwelis consistency when dropping albums. He's one of the rare rappers not to fall off .

    ?
    It ain't even about who had the best album between the two
    It's about who's more consistent and had better verses between the two
    If it was about prime then Em would be the best MC of all time but it's unfair to critique MCs based on prime imo.
    No need to throw insults over an opinion chill

    For example
    Both of them were on College Dropout on different songs with some of their strongest verses
    Talib arguably had the better verse on Get Em High
    Even on Blackstar album, Talib had some of the best verses of rap history(Respiration for example)

    Madlib being named as producer boosts chances of this album to happen so yeah. How about you?

    I'm not even talking about this thread tbh
    I'm referring to S80 altogether
    Your lying about stuff that could be really happening to someone else irl because your image conscious and want to be looked at a certain way by other users. Your using sensitive topics to receive attention from. I don't think your telling the truth in any of the posts/comments you've made about those specific topics.

    I think what Talib always had over Mos was the hunger for it. Mos does whatever he wants, good or bad, but either way it always comes off effortless. Talib tries too hard. Early in his career it worked, later on, not as well. Could be that I'm also thinking of the Black Star chapter in Brian Coleman's Check The Technique Vol 2 book. He seems to imply that Talib took the Black Star album more seriously than Mos.

    It's like comparing a wet turd to a polished turd. Both are overrated tbh.

    Mos's best moments are better than talib's for me. However, I think they are not as many moments like this as people want you to believe. So with that said, talib is better for me, even though in the 2010-2014 some beat selection was absolute crap. I like him and big boi more over their partners

    Mos > Talib. But Talib has been pretty consistent throughout his career, which Mos has not.
