"Is the "Biggie is the greatest ever" notion a Brooklyn* thing only?"


  

          

*Puffy's opinion notwithstanding

and is it only due to his untimely passing?

classic debut, a 75% great double album, a rack of guest appearances and remixes and he's the greatest rapper of all time?

If you're from Brooklyn, I guess I understand. But Im from Harlem and I dont elevate Big L as an all time rap god

If you're not from Brooklyn, make your case for Big being the G.O.A.T

I'd say right after he died, it was an East Coast thing
Sep 29th 2011
34
Puff was the one to start that nonsense.
Sep 29th 2011
39
Is it nonsense though?
Sep 29th 2011
50
      It's ridiculous cause he had two albums. I mean how fair is that?
Sep 29th 2011
56
           I don't recall anyone referencing his lack of writing lyrics down
Sep 29th 2011
69
I'm almost 100%positive that I never heard that sentiment until he died
Sep 29th 2011
48
Yep and it came out of the mouth of Puffy and Puffy only.
Sep 29th 2011
49
ditto.
Sep 29th 2011
58
word like I'm sure he had mad fans who thought he was the best
Sep 29th 2011
79
I Agree, Many Liked Him But Not On The Level They Do Now
Sep 30th 2011
96
It's not a BK thing..I once felt that way too that he was at least
Sep 29th 2011
51
i f you're over 25 and BIG isn't in your top 10, the side eye you get
Sep 29th 2011
53
Sorry man but big aint coming before BDK, BT, or Redman.
Sep 29th 2011

Current King of NY makes a song about Former King of NY:

As an aside, has anyone from Wu stepped to Smoke DZA about his name?
Sep 29th 2011
57
      i believe dza is slang for weed or something
Sep 29th 2011
92
I think he had the GOAT flow but as far overall package, nah.
Sep 29th 2011
59
He had two albums, two.
Sep 29th 2011
61
Uhhhh....
Sep 29th 2011
62
Hendrix was crowned by his peers though
Sep 29th 2011
64
      You're saying B.I.G. wasn't? C'mon kwez
Sep 29th 2011
66
           Biggie was nice as fuck no doubt
Sep 29th 2011
68
                You're right. On that level, how many do?
Sep 29th 2011
71
                     Nope, there are tons of emcees with at least 2 great albums
Sep 29th 2011
74
                     Let's break these down one by one, shall we?
Sep 29th 2011
77
                          ll cool j has 3-4 great albums
Sep 29th 2011

                     Big Daddy Kane has two great albums?
Sep 29th 2011
81
And...
Sep 29th 2011
63
      Maybe so...
Sep 29th 2011
65
           In contrast, Jay-Z also has more shit sticking to him
Sep 29th 2011
67
                You know why? Two albums.
Sep 29th 2011
70
                     So if you make 20 songs, and 18 are nice
Sep 29th 2011
72
                          Hell naw lol
Sep 29th 2011
73
                               We ain't talkin a one and done deal though, are we?
Sep 29th 2011
75
                                    The facts are, by sheer volume of great songs Jay wins
Sep 29th 2011
76
What I think is worse is Lauryn Hill = Best female rapper ever
Sep 29th 2011
78
So if not her, who?
Sep 29th 2011
82
mc lyte and latifah are #1 and #2 in my book
Sep 29th 2011
91
      sounds like you need a new book.
Sep 29th 2011
95
      I mean....it's the whole Bo Jackson vs. [insert RB] argument
Sep 30th 2011
97
      The problem with those girls is the allegation they didn't write...
Sep 30th 2011
104
           not really allegation - it's fact.
Sep 30th 2011
105
           Wait, so Lyte and Latifah didn't write their own?
Sep 30th 2011
118
                That's the word
Sep 30th 2011
119
           what songs though?...allegations dont mean shit to me
Oct 05th 2011
142
I was actually talking to my co-worker about that
Sep 29th 2011
89
      Yeah for sure. And I mean, female rappers obviously aren't near

He's not in my top 5
Sep 29th 2011
87
Canibus was the first I heard say it on the LL diss
Sep 29th 2011
90
He was a Lyricist that had commercial appeal
Sep 30th 2011
103
^^^^^^^^^^
Sep 30th 2011
106
in the time where he dropped I would agree
Sep 30th 2011
112
      I tried to stay away from Jay and Snoop
Sep 30th 2011
114
      I think it's unfair to judge Jay like that though
Oct 03rd 2011
125
           Well that's the way it is
Oct 04th 2011
136
      "and how to sell records like Snoop, oops" (c) Big
Sep 30th 2011
116
you answer your question since its been 15 years since his passing
Sep 30th 2011
111
I get a feeling listening to him rap that I never got from any other art...
Sep 30th 2011
113
Big LOL on this failed analogy
Sep 30th 2011
120
basically. even when he died i remember ppl still saying pac was
Sep 30th 2011
121
despite what chicks at your high school said because they thought
Sep 30th 2011
123
      had nothing to do with his looks. the point is they still liked pac more
Oct 03rd 2011
124
notice how no-one bashes the "BIG's the greatest" arguement like Pac?
Oct 03rd 2011
126
wut?
Oct 03rd 2011
128
BIG and Pac both have great songs
Oct 04th 2011
131
      hmm.
Oct 04th 2011
134
west coast rap died with Pac unfortunately. east coast rap still had
Oct 03rd 2011
129
      RE: west coast rap died with Pac unfortunately. east coast rap still had
Oct 04th 2011
132
      But that there actually makes a case for Pac
Oct 04th 2011
133
           i don't mind people saying pac is GOAT.
Oct 04th 2011
135
                whoops.
Oct 04th 2011
137
As talented & impactful as he was, the catalog was 2 short
Oct 05th 2011
141
RE: Is the "Biggie is the greatest ever" notion a Brooklyn* thing only?
Oct 12th 2011
143
Aesop Rock and El P are the best rappers ever
Oct 18th 2011
146
ASAP Rocky, maybe.
Oct 19th 2011
147
it's all bullshit
