    Ok i am comparing the 2 because of the last decade how popular these 2 artists became.

    I'm all for Eminem winning this one. Lil Wayne makes good mainstream music which is fun to listen to when i'm driving or whatever. Problem is where is his skills? All that underground music he released WTF is it even real? I tried finding information on this guy doing some freestyle or battles even things that involve the hiphop culture and nothing is anywhere to be found!

    Eminem on the other hand can rap, freestyle and win battles you can even youtube this guy and he's battling some MC spitting lyrics. This for me goes far beyond him being white and a rapper because many would say "oh its cause hes white America likes him" he proved himself many times and crushed all his ememies hiphop style haha.

    i'd like to know what you guys think. Eminem or Wayne? No hatin i respect both artist for hustling and making that money. Both seems to be doing fine in the BUSINESS of music but what about the the RAP?

    My top 5
    Dr Dre
    Nas
    Eminem
    50 cent
    Jay Z

    PS: Don't forget to get that DETOX ALBUM coming soon guys! It's gonna be the biggest hiphop album in the legacy of hiphop! prolly like 15 years in the making. Dre is making this DETOX a MYTH lol hurry Doc!

    Skills?

    Thankfully I'm a product of the 70's/80's back when musician's had to actually PLAY an instrument and vocalists SANG and NOT talked!

    Face it! Had rap not been invented 3/4 of these rhyming ass clowns would be taking it doggy style in the state pen.

    Er...just my opinion...

    hah funny. I think you should update yourself and listen to a variety of different music. haha quit talking about instruments. I play the guitar myself and love it. I can tell you that 90% of guitar songs you hear from artists are "E A D G B E" chords but they do mess around with it. And rapping and hiphop proved one thing. ANYONE can go in a studio and MAKE A ROCK RECORD check out Lil wayne's rebirth album i make up my own songs on the guitar all the time it's not that hard man. That is also why you see so many guitar covers on youtube. Many can play guitar easily haha but not many can pull off rapping and keeping up with a beat.

    I do agree with you tho. Music in the 70/80s are nice. In fact, I love music from that time so much that i prefer to listen to the instrumentals more than the lyrics haha. I'm not into love and emotional lyrics but that's just me people have different taste.

    Eminem easily beats Lil Wayne. It's a stupid question. While Wayne can be good at times his ego ruins most of his songs. Example: there are countless Wayne songs where he will laugh after he says something he thinks sounds witty or smart and it gets ANNOYING. Also he looks like he's 16, and acts like it.

    No, I'm not talking about those cheesy 3 chord progressions, I'm talking about real music like ELP, Yes, Kansas etc.

    But I do have a confession to make! I'm not sure if it's real rap or not but I like some of the Beasty Boys stuff. I'm a drummer so anytime I hear those heavy, Bonham - laden beats...I can't help myself. :D

    Ranking music is like ranking art. Some artists have amazing pieces and some that suck just like rappers but my top 5 I guess as an overall:

    1. Nas
    2. Tupac (can't believe I'm the only one who mentioned him so far, sad)
    3. Jay-Z
    4. KRS-One
    5. Eminem

    I mean seriously though a lot of upcoming lyricists though like Lil Wayne, Drake, and others.. the only problem is nobody is exactly certain who wrote their verses.

    Can someone explain to me why Lil Wayne is even considered in this argument? Every single song i've heard from him is horrible. Yep he has good delivery and beats, and his voice sounds pleasing to the ear (some people's ears). The only problem is his rhymes seem to lack all intelligence, barely ever going higher than 4 letter words. I think it sucks that nowadays if your voice is catchy you can talk about absolute nonsense dumb your lyrics down to a 3rd grade level and be talked about as being "the best".

    I am a better lyricist than Lil Wayne (literally)...I have never met anyone who actually understands rap who does not hate Lil Wayne...Sometimes I like to jerk off to HIP-POP, but most of the time it is real rap music when I am in the hip-hop/rap mood...

    Mainstream:

    1) Eminem
    2) Jay-Z
    3) Tupac
    4) Nas
    5) Dr. Dre

    REAL RAP:

    1) Atmosphere
    2) Brother Ali
    3) Talib Kweli
    4) Eminem
    5) Mac Lethal

    Freestylers/Battle Rappers:

    1) Jin
    2) Jin
    3) Jin
    4) Jin
    5) Jin

    Get this Lil Wayne shit out of here...Listen to the Marshal Mathers LP and tell me Lil Wayne could even breathe on that album.
