Personally, I'd say The Roots could get it. What say you?

These guys say otherwise:

The Roots are mos def contenders. Maybe top 5.

Scarface is my pick especially if you include his work with the Geto Boys.

Those are 2 that definitely come to mind first. I'd throw Ghostface into that fray as well.

Easy, Eminem, simply because no two albums of his sound even remotely alike. You could make the case that all 7 of them sound as though they could have been made by 7 separate artists. That is ridiculously impressive.

Posted on Aug 8, 2012 2:41:20 PM PDT
His first few sound quite similar if you ask me.

Ghostface should qualify, and Rza if you look at all the complete production credits he has.

A customer says:
Infinite, SSLP and MMLP sound similar? I don't know, I don't even think his VOICE sounds similar on those three.

Agree, those first three Em albums are all completely different.

For me it's easy: Tech N9ne. 17 albums and counting and he has not fell off in the least.

Tupac [even without the posthumous releases]
Scarface [definitely]
KRS-One [does anybody have a greater body of work?]

Half the time i dont understand GFK, i dont know how this guy is rated highly the way he is. Not saying he's wack or anything but if you have enunciation problems this bad, you should loose points.

Even when you know what Ghostface is saying, you don't know what Ghostface is saying. He's a skilled MC who's forte happens to be spitting nonsensical non sequiturs and gobbledygook of grandeur.

haha, i see someone shares my sentiments. This is exactly what i mean. Even when he's coherent enough for me to make out a line of thought, I still go: WTF? I dont see how thats a skill. That dude annoys me like crazy. And my Wu-Tang addicts for friends like him.

I totally agree about Ghostface. One of the reasons I've never got big into him

If only Biggie lived....

I think Cypress Hill or Jedi Mind Tricks have the best discography. I'm talking hit for hit. Little Brother was close. Single artist? hmmm... Snoop and Necro. No bull- check their stuff.

Those Eminem albums could all be one as far as I'm concerned.

Ghostface is a challenging emcee, but it's hardly nonsense. Every word has a specific translation to amount to a story or at least a specific sentiment.

K-Rino's discography is pretty amazing. Obviously only if you're a fan in the first place.

Yeah, i forgot K-Rino. He deserves a mention definitely.

GFK's music is mostly trash, cmon people...

GTFOH! I was cool with everything you've said before that, but calling the man's music trash is bs. All of Wu-Tang deals with lots of intricate inside slang. Ghost just does it the most (and best). Are Aesop Rock and Doom's music trash?

DL says:
I also concur with the mentioned Jedi Mind Tricks and The Roots

Ghostface rhymes in sling and ridddles. Kinda like Khujo and Gipp does. And I luv it and think its very creative.

Also, just because someone has a large discog does not make it the best. Too Short comes to mind. He's my number 8 fav rapper of all time but only 5-6 of his albums are top notch out of the 15+ he has dropped.

K-Rino disocg is consitent but I still have a hard time picking one definitive classic album from it. They are all either average to real good.

D-Train says:
Easy !!! Eminens music is not as good as people make it.... He came from the hood and makes no hood music at all...... He started off that way sold his sole for the fame, glory and money.... I love his guest tracks back in the late 90's...... His pop albums are not for me....

A customer says:
That's like shunning a Norse band because they don't burn cathedrals and worship Satan. I simply don't care about how "hood" someone is. Good music is good music, pop or otherwise.

You're not really saying anything but contradiction around here. Stop trolling and just state your point.

D-Train says:
GFK can rap his but off, he merks eminem yeah I said it...... slow, fast, great word play this aint evern close.... Haley and Brittney spears are played out but he will still go plat because of exposure....I never hear any Eminem being played at the clubs I've been to in the past 15yrs most of the dj's are white, asian and mexican but you will here some GFK...... Put Ems best album up vs ghosts best and see what cats think.....

Who, me? I'm not sure I understand. My point is, I judge music for -- here comes a shocker -- the music. Never been called a troll before. Thanks! I feel so young and modern now.

I can say the opposite, I've heard Em played countless times in bars and clubs. But I cannot ever remember hearing Ghostface played. Obviously it depends on the spot. I'm sure Ghostface gets played in hip-hop spots especially on the east coast. Being in Michigan I've obviously heard Eminem and in my travels all over the world I've heard him in probably every country I've been. I can respect your opinion that you like Ghostface over Eminem but trying to say Ghost gets more play in clubs is insane.
