Tupac, Biggie, Wayne



Tupac died at the age of 25. Biggie died at 24 (2 months from his 25th birthday). If Wayne died at the age of 25 (in 2007) how would you rank the three?
Since the obvious answer from the MB will be,
1. Pac
2. Biggie
...
1000. Wayne

is there even another artist that comes close to these three in terms of quality of material put out at such a young age? Snoop & Nas maybe?
Who you got?

Note: This is mainly regarding officially released material, not random street battles and radio freestyles.

Eminem, Nas, Scarface, Rakim & Jay-Z deserve their rightful place in this conversion.

I love Scarface but he doesn't really fit into that upper echelon. As influential Rakim was he doesn't either. Eminem,Nas,and Jay Z all refined the genre.

If Lil Wayne died in 2007 he would have been known as releasing two of the best mixtapes ever (Dedication 2 and Da Drought 3 ) and for introducing the phrase "drop it like it's hot." That's about it.

Scarface has two albums that are arguably classics in The Diary & The Fix with The Fix receiving the rare 5 mics from The Source magazine. With his solo work & work as a member of The Geto Boys he very so deserves to be in this conservation. What hurts him is that the majority of his success was during the late 80's through the 90's & because of this he tends to get overlooked in this conversation. For a really long time though, he was highly regarded by his fellow peers & others in the industry. You can use those exact same arguments for Rakim as well.

I took the JZ train in Manhattan to Brooklyn last week and realized where Jay-Z got his name when I noticed the first stop was Marcy Ave.

Not so fast, my friend. The MB will rank Biggie ahead of Pac, and if the MB doesn't, then the MB sucks.

re: Tupac, Biggie, Wayne


Ive got biggie at 1, but ive never been a fan of pac overall. He always rubbed me the wrong way with his lack of identity as an artist. First he claimed the east coast, then he got a better record deal and claimed the west. Pac is one of those dudes i respect, and would never call someone out for liking, but hes just not for me. I feel the same way about em, i was just never into dude, but i respect everything hes done.

The Notorious BIG is much better than TuPac Shakur. It isn't even close.
