Of course it's the real world, it's not trolls hiding behind a laptop that offer up no legitimate objective agruments.

I'm far from being a troll lil boy. If you want to listen to some of Chamillionaire's mixtapes & older punchlines, you have to put in your own work. I'm not going to do it for you even though I could do so very easily.

Going off your taste in music, you seem like the type who tried to get others to do your work for you in school. It aint happening here. All you gonna do is talk down on whatever is put in front of you anyway. Wayne's manhood is just too tasty for you to get out of your mouth to even listen to anything else.

You wanna know why Koopa never was as big when his tapes were completely sick...because he never sold out like Wayne did...he went and sold the independent tapes out of his trunk

So you want me to accept your argument without any concrete proof? That's what you're telling me, and you sound like an idiot doing it. So if you believe you have solid evidence, post it. But obviously you dont since you're avoiding the oh so difficult task of linking a couple of YouTube songs.

How were his mixtapes sell-outs? Because they elevated him to stardom and made Jay-Z want to sign him to the Roc? Please elaborate on this statement.

He sold out long before that

Baby thought he was "marketable" so he started the process of creating the star persona he became

Happens a lot more than you think

His first couple albums even the 1st 2 Carter's were mostly ghostwritten, you were listening to Gullie Da Kids rhymes

Cash Money signed street kids and then low rent artists tryin to make it big and promoted the street kids, Juve was the only artist who never had a ghostwriter

Thank you for the links Bucc.

Furious Five was
Time machine was ok, not a song I'd purposely seek out though. While the wordplay was good, Chamillionaire's flow sounded forced and just not very natural on that track.

Is it ok if I get an opinion from you? Is there anything that distinctively makes Chamillionaire better compared to Wayne on, let's just say, this track Young Money Property . I'd just like to hear your honest opinion on his verse...

Just like Big Sean (who made the song A$$) ghost wrote Graduation?
You can't believe every rumor you hear on a message board.

It was a very archaic verse, Curren$y has the best one on that song he uses a lot of the same words instead of rhyming different ones

Here's a much better Wayne verse IMHO

Good Girl Gone Bad - Devin Ft. Wayne & Bun B

I know someone who worked in the building at Cash Money

She was a receptionist

I'd have to disagree. It had good flow, but very simplistic wordplay. Wayne's wordplay was amazing on that song.

I guess this is where tastes come into play. While it was good, there was nothing in there that made me go "Wow!" like his verse in Young Money Property. Just my opinion though.

There have been some good responses in this thread. Best one, IMO, was Chamillionaire. At this point I don't think Big KRIT or Curren$y qualify, though. Too early in their career. I feel like you need a solid stable to say your mixtapes are better than your commercial releases.

And Wiz is shit, period.

IMO, it's a Chamillionaire vs Wayne discussion. I'm inclined to say Wayne, but that's because I've only heard a little bit of Chamillionaire's mixtapes.

ETA:

I don't even know how you'd start to prove that. If you can prove it, sure, that's a legitimate critique, but...I just don't see how.

Those were great tapes. He fell off A LOT after Kush and OJ. Can't really get into much of his newer shite.
