    if you compare 2pacs first 3 albums with big's first 3, big destroys him (i'm considering life after death 2 cd's). the only reason pac is even compared is due to longevity/total records.

    wrong wrong and wrong.

    Firstly. "Gangsta Rap" is a product of southern California. Period. Other people do it to, yeah I know, but they didn't invent it.

    Dr. Dre collaborated on Tupac's work during the height of his success. Puff Daddy worked with Biggie. Is Puffy more gangsta then Dre?

    This entire debate boils down to one simple thing, East Coast people just don't get it, and never will

    i could give a shit less who was more gangsta than the other....

    IMO, biggies' songs are on the whole more enjoyable to listen to than 2pacs' are.

    I can easily go through an entire cd on biggie without skipping a track. i can't say the same for pac.
    sure, he may be more street and have deeper/better lyrics, but biggie was bar far the better artist in terms of total production in my ears.

    what the fuck does puff daddy have to do with biggie being a better rapper?

    imho, it means biggie was better. if you are calling puff a flaming fag then that adds legitimacy to biggies talent.

    imagine if big was rapping over dre's beats..../thread

    ^ that's basically battle fo the producers.

    I agree that dre is FAR superior to puffy....
    (ma$e vs eminem! lol)


    but, that doesn't change the fact that biggie had better beats, more catchy songs, and shares a slot in my mp3 collection, where as 2pac does not.

    The first part is a matter of opinion, I can listen to entire Pac albums without skipping a tack. I have the "Ready to Die" double album, yet only two tracks made it to my Ipod

    Your second line is key. You are willing to trade the authentic lyrics and original rap production quality of Tupac for the plastic pop sound laid down by p-diddy and the second rate lyrics of biggie. If that doesn't outline the failure of pop culture then I don't know what does...

    yes, i'll trade lyrics for a song that 'sounds good'.

    i don't give a shit about blunts, 40s, bitches, gang banging, getting shot, or whatever.... i like music that has a good beat and is 'fun' to listen to, or otherwise sets some sort of mood.

    the only mood i get in listening to pac is that he should've fucked his mom because thats all he whines about.

    IMO, they were both decent artist--their music happens to be geared towards different groups of people. Outside of opinion, there isn't really one that is "better" than the other.

    Nas gets my vote for lyrical genius.

    for lyricist, give jay-z a second, third, and even fourth listen. slow it down a little bit. maybe even read the lyrics online. his last 2 or 3 albums are lyrically epic.

    lol, are you serious!?!?
