"Name artists/album described as good to great, that's mediocre...."

if judge by the standards of just one generation prior.

I feel like a lot of artists get by on the lack of music knowledge of a lot of listeners.

This could be fun.

I'll start with Tyler's Igor. Them mediocre Neptunes and Kanye tracks.

I get that his songs might have got the party's going. But dude was barely adequate on the mic.

AZ got a deal first and is slightly older(I think) but they were both coming up around the same time. IMO, Jay-Z was sounding like both of them, in 96.

There’s not a ton of early Mase out there and some of it is poor quality, but there’s enough to know that he had those multis and crazy flow and was right there with almost anybody back then. And NY rappers of his era or right after like Jada, Fab, etc. always give him respect. Biggie did too, and we know that wasn’t political because he shit on Craig Mack when they were both on Bad Boy. Underwhelming career for the skill level, no question. But he could spit.

He's kind of a throwback rapper in that he has more traditional emceeing skills. But when I listen to him, I just want to listen to 2Pac and Jay because they did what he does now, but better.
