I do like their music but i can't see them as top 100 just yet. Top 150 yes, but i think they still have work to do to be top 100.

I'm gonna say top 100 barely for Little Brother. IMO, they are overrated by a lot, but they do put out a lot of quality material.

I gave Little Brother the nod just barely to be a top 100 hip-hop act of all-time, more towards the back end of getting in..98 to 100

Why??

I think they've done enough to warrant this recognition that's why and they score just good enough in my voting criteria, that's why??

The Listening-4.25 stars
The Chitlin Circuit 1.5-5 stars
The Minstrel Show-4.85 stars

just on those alone they've done enough and I have Phonte as a top 20 emcee of all-time, dude is no joke on that mic device

top 100 IMO

Cise Starr could you please NEVER compare Little Brother and People Under The Stairs ever again man..lol..from what I've heard from each group it's not even close..

Yeah Shon I gave them the vote man, I mean I've got The Game getting the back end of the top 100 of all-time as well so Little Brother more than warrants selection here man IMO!

Not quite. They've made good music, especially their first two albums and the Chitlin Circuit, but they're also highly derivative. I don't know if their catalog is great enough to make up for that, especially since I think they slipped big time with Get Back, without 9th. Which was surprising to me, since I've never liked 9th's production much, but he did seem to keep their work more consistent and focused, whereas Get Back was scattershot.

I wasn't trying to compare them but since you brought it up...

Why is it such an absurd comparison? Both groups have excellent production and have each put forth multiple "classics". LB has The Chitlin Circuit and The Minstrel Show while PUTS has Fun DMC and O.S.T.

What albums have you even heard from PUTS? Clearly not enough...

I can understand why you would like LB more since their sound is reminiscent of the golden age of hip hop. I, on the other hand, am more of a west coast guy.

Wow, seems a little extreme for me just disagreeing with you. It's cool though. I disagree with you about 35% of the time on these, but usually keep my mouth shut because you throw temper tantrums and take personal stabs. But sorry, I must LOL @ Phonte being top 20 all-time once again. LOL.

From PUTS I've heard Stepfather and The Next Step

They are a decent group but nowhere on the level of Little Brother IN MY OPINION...I think Little Brother smashes them up easily..

As for temper tantrums....Pounds I know you are not talking about those RALPH TRESVANT...remember that??

I know not everybody is going to agree with everybody right?? who really gives a damn, that's why I don't understand why you said you agree with me less and less like it means something to me..not sure why it matters..lol

Phonte is a top 20 emcee of all-time in my book and many others..maybe not on here but hey Big Jess and Konami (spell check..lol) aren't listed many other places either right?? lol

so people have different opinions and takes on shit right?? big deal..it's never that serious to me man...I just debate about shit and keep it moving

It doesn't matter. I just wanted to hear what you had to say because I knew you'd fly off the handle about it. lol

That and you usually state your opinion as fact, and always state your case as being objective. You cannot tell me that you feel Phonte is objectively a top 20 emcee of all-time. Big Jess & Knonam are just artists I personally enjoy because of their disposition, songwriting, and overall vibe. But I wouldn't be stupid enough to say they are objectively top 20 emcees of all time....they are not.

LOL. It's funny because once I saw your name on here, I was gonna post about how you said they probably wouldn't make your top 100. You would beat me to it, ha.

Powell, you seriously think Phonte is a top 20 emcee? That is just crazy talk right there because there is plenty of mc's out there better than him. Phonte is an AVERAGE mc and if he didn't have good production he wouldn't be a damn thing...

All of the emcees on my list are the complete package IMO

in different ways they are all complete emcees, encompassing flow,lyrics,ability to create great songs,some have battle ability,strong story-telling skills, everything that it takes to be considered a top emcee, a legend, a game changer!

Hey Powell, I don't think anyone's ever asked this... What does your top 20 look like when you're not looking at only lyrics?

Your top 18 look good to me Powell, but the last two are suspect to me. It's not a big deal to me though. It just shows your personality.

If I was looking at ONLY lyrics Shon then 2Pac as an example would not be so high up on the level, because lyrically Canibus and Bumpy Knuckles are better than him lyrically IMO

I gave my definitions of how I judge everything up above!

It's not stupid. But you really shouldn't pull the Big Jess/Knonam/PUTS/[insert underground artist here] card. Because you're doing the same thing here by playing favorites with one of your newer favorites. You may think I'm delusional for claiming some underground emcees are some of my favorites, but no way is Phonte even close to the top 20 rhymers of all time, and you know it. And this list is supposed to teach me something? lol...what? I own albums if not full discogs by every artist except Jadakiss. And you know this as well.

what's your top 20 of all-time look like??

LOL! I said they were suspect to me, and you've seen my list before. I'm sure there are names you'd think were odd. I just don't see how Jada and Phonte make your top 20, and dudes like Em, Ghost, Pharoahe Monch, and a few others don't. That is all.

Eminem is lacking in more than a few areas to me and he's too fuckin silly to be honest with you for me anyway, although he is a very good lyricist

Ghost is a bit overrated IMO, he's very dope but in his own group I've got Meth and GZA ahead of him

Monche is very dope but hasn't done enough for me over his long career and at times I find him to be boring on the mic..very good but boring with no charisma

That's my top 20 emcees of ALL-TIME, IMO there is nothing stupid about that list Pounds, just tons of hip-hop listening experience my dude, read it, ya might learn something man...lol

what's yours look like???

It's not stupid. But you really shouldn't pull the Big Jess/Knonam/PUTS/[insert underground artist here] card. Because you're doing the same thing here by playing favorites with one of your newer favorites. You may think I'm delusional for claiming some underground emcees are some of my favorites, but no way is Phonte even close to the top 20 rhymers of all time, and you know it. And this list is supposed to teach me something? lol...what? I own albums if not full discogs by every artist except Jadakiss. And you know this as well.

I KNOW that I'm still looking to see Alan Pounds top 20 emcees of all-time list, that's what I'm waiting for, until I see that he's just mumbling in my eyes...lol..where is it Pounds???

What's the point? You only want me to post it so you can pick it apart and say yours is better because you've been listening to hip-hop since 1950 when jazz cats were scatting. lol

But really, I was not picking apart your list. I know it's your opinion. I wouldn't care if you put Hammer in there.

"If I was looking at ONLY lyrics Shon then 2Pac as an example would not be so high up on the level, because lyrically Canibus and Bumpy Knuckles are better than him lyrically IMO

I gave my definitions of how I judge everything up above!"

Oh, sorry. I just remember one time when you said something like that, lol.

Monche is very dope but hasn't done enough for me over his long career and at times I find him to be boring on the mic..very good but boring with no charisma

There is no way Phonte and jada bring more to the table than these 3. It's not possible. LOL!

I don't think there is as big of a gap between those two as you would like to believe. Both og Big Pooh's albums were solid.

I think the gap between Big Pooh and Phonte is bigger than Jenna Jameson's man..lol

it's fuckin HUGE and I like both of Pooh's solo joints as well especially the first one but he's average to me on the mic...Phonte is above-above average just below spectacular, but he's top 20 for me overall

I already explained why Monch, Eminem and Ghost aren't on my list and feel my reasons are very valid.....I know many heads are feeling those guys like that but I'm not, meaning not top 20 feeling them anyway..again it's my opinion on them....gotta love opinions right???

I think you need a comma between Jameson and man.

Otherwise it sounds like you're talking about how large her boyrfriends dick is.

Just passing that along.



Powell isn't impressed by quick rappers, by punchlines, by internal rhyme schemes, etc etc etc. I understand by Powell's standards Phonte is a dope mc.

LOL, thanks for that one N3RO, appreciate it man, but internal rhyme schemes (Eminem) are great but if that's all ya got for a dope emcee then he/she is lacking my dude

who is quicker than Treach??

Punchlines?? Cool J, Jay-Z, Slick Rick, but you may not know too much about these guys N3RO

I've got a pretty complete list by my standards N3RO, maybe not by yours but by mine they're pretty damn good my dude!

BRAKESSSS!! I had to stop and comment on this line...Bump is in my top 40 but betta lyricists than Pac? Now that's str8 up crazy.

And I don't know why everyone is frontin on Phonte but the man is a str8 up no thrills lyricists. His delivery is average and his flow is nothing special but lyric wise he is a big dog to me.
