    “Royce da 5’9” and “Greatest” are 2 words that shouldn’t ever be near each other.

    Not voting because I refuse to indulge the false narrative that Em is #1, but Ye is my pick for top Midwestern artist, honourable mentions to Gibbs/Keef/Dilla

    The midwest is like 15 states... Royce Five Foot Tall is probably not the best rapper on his block.

    It's because the US was explored from east to west and they didn't realize how f---ing massive it was so the "west" ended up not being as west as they thought so it became the midwest.

    I gotta give Tech a lot of credit, even though I'm not personally a huge fan, but he has been hustling for years with pretty much the same caliber of music, and he isn't afraid to get on a song with newer artists to help their careers out. Plus he overall just seems like a good dude.

    That ‘Other’ bracket deserves its own thread.

    Is Royce Da 5'0 some kind of undercover police officer investigating hoods of Midwest?

    And to answer I'll go with Freddie Gibbs.
