For example, Every Girl or something like that is just an awful, awful song (I know it because my sister has a ton of Lil' Wayne on ITunes). There are plenty of other people who suck worse than him I'm sure. Drakes songs are bad/going to be bad I think but the people who hate him are never going to hate him as much as people who hate Lil' Wayne hate him. As for the list, it's good. Excellent actually.
It's called "Different Girl", not "Every Girl", and his altered voice in the song made him sound good/decent. But, in all honesty, he sucked ass in his verse in "Forever" by Drake.

And speaking of Drake, I urge you guys to listen to Forever - Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem; Apparently I got Jr addicted to it. :6

I'm not trying to force my views on you, but this is a good heads up as to who you should be listening to and who you shouldn't be listening to (hence the title).


You Should be Listening To:
Q-Tip
Atmosphere
Jay-Z
Wu-Tang Clan
Any Individual Member of the Wu-Tang Clan -- Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, GZA, RZA, O.D.B. (RIP), Method Man, U-God, Masta Killa
Rakim
B.o.B.
Wale
K-Otix
Run DMC
Cypress Hill
Ludacris
Kanye West
Lupe Fiasco
NaS
Eminem
The Game
Jedi Mind Tricks
Common
Slick Rick
OutKast - And the individual members Andre 3000 & Big Boi
Talib Kweli
Mos Def (including Black Star)
Chamillionaire
Ice Cube
Big L
Big Pun
Snoop Dogg
MF Doom
AZ
Beanie Sigel
Busta Rhymes
OutKast (including Andre 3K and Big Boi individually)
Papoose
Jay Electronica
A Tribe Called Quest
Dr. Dre
N.W.A.
Public Enemy
The Notorious B.I.G.
KRS-One
2Pac
De La Soul
Gang Starr
Lauryn Hill
Wax


Who You Should Be Ignoring:
T-Pain
Akon
DJ Khaled
Fabolous
Fat Joe
Rick Ross
Flo Rida
New Nelly (his old stuff is fine)
Diddy
G-Unit
Bubba Sparxxx
Soulja Boy and anyone associated with him
Sean Kingston (not really a rapper but whatever)
LL Cool J (old stuff is good, not so much recently)
Memphis Bleek
Lil' Kim
Lil' Mama
Kardinal Offishall
2 Pistols
Ace Hood
Ray J
Yung Berg
Plies
Twista
Pitbull
Ja Rule
Shawty Lo
Brisco
Will.I.Am. (though as a producer he's good)
Lil Jon
Dem Franchize Boyz
E-40
Birdman


Who can either be really awful or really good depending on the track:
Young Jeezy
Lil' Wayne
T.I.
Pharell
N*E*R*D
50 Cent
Fort Minor
Bun B
Drake
Three 6 Mafia
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony
Paul Wall
Juelz Santana
Jadakiss
Cassidy

Hope I could help.
What a post.
How old are you?

2things:
First, LL Cool J is an icon, regardless of the last 10 years. He belongs in the first list. Gonna say Cindy Lauper ain't solid pop rock?
And, screw you on Fort Minor. Shinoda is A tight MC and producer.
= p

Second(i'm not gonna search), some great dudes always get overlooked; Zach De LaRocha, Fred Durst and Kid Rock to name a few. Love em or hate em, their lyrics are tight and styles unique. That's a good vocalist in any genre.
Otherwise, i won't mess with your lists. Pretty much agree with you.

(Anybody listen to Hollywood Undead?)
Sick.

And Classified is pretty friggin good too. Rascalz? Swollen Members? Kardinal?
Let's hear it for the Canadian Boys. Represent.

Let's hear it for the Canadian Boys. Represent.
1. Zach De LaRocha, Fred Durst and Kid Rock are country and other genres, not hip-hop
2. Hollywood Undead= Fail
3. you forgot to mention K'naan, another Canadian rapper

Depends on what you mean. By saying you dont like it, no the term does not fit; however in other cases it does.

Teryaki Boys and the Chopper City Boys can be added to the Borderline list.
David Banner is on my crap list, but a great producer
C-Side, GS Boys, and New Boyz (if i forgot them at any time) all belong on the crap list
Jazze Pha and Fatman Scoop are great producers, but bad rappers
Lil Xavier can be added to the ok list
Lil Romeo to the ok list too

Akon is not good. Updated the list a bit but I'm probably missing a few. Remind me.

Just gave KiD CuDi's new album a listen. Amazing.

They're rappers, dude.
The music they make is a matter of opinion and taste . To call any of those first 3 country is just ignorant. Political, Funk and Trailer Trash dudes can rap too and MCing is an element of Hip Hop, is it not? Throw in Sonny from P. O. D. and you've even got Spiritual! You don't have to just be Urban or Gangster to be Hip Hop.

Maybe that's why they get overlooked; people forget it's a culture and not a lifestyle.
But whatever. I think they're cool.
