This one is the KRob special. I know Quik is his choice, but who loves these two more than Kev. Who is the better artist. Who has the best discog? Best Production? Best MC?

I would say Quik is the better emcee and the more consistent artist overall. In my opinion, though, nothing I've heard from him can fuck with College Dropout.

I've only heard two Quik albums so I won't comment.

Quik pretty easily. But time will tell if West regains his luster in my eyes (I know everybody else loved his last cd, but I haven't really been that impressed since his debut).

Score = 10

WOO HOO!!

Yeah man both of these cats are something special to me. But like you already predicted Quik wins. But the margin is not wide at all.

Quik has been more consistant in the album department and on the mic. But Ye is a more diverse producer than Quik imo. Also Kanye may have Quik in the substance department but thats by a thinline. Ye seems to need guest rappers for his albums where I feel Quik doesn't need any.

Both are top 10 fav producers of mine but Quik is top 3 where Ye is top 5-10.

I agree and I agree. I still haven't heard Kanye's latest, though

I've heard 0 Kanye West albums, and don't plan on ever listening to one. Of the songs of his I've heard, I can kinda dig the production, but I'm not a fan. Guess I'm just a hater.

Yo Slang I know you want to review Killarmy's Dirty Weaponry in the "Review That Album" thread.

Quik.


this is a really good comparison IMO....hardly a joke, and I'm going with Kanye ever so slightly....Quik actually has a better overall catalog but not by alot....but I'm giving the production to Kanye....IMO as emcees they are about even.....voice goes to Kanye...flow goes to Quik....wordplay goes to Kanye......rhyme cadence is Quik's too IMO.....

what fucks Kanye up is his prickish attitude towards the world and everything in it...so I guess as a person Quik is blowing his ass out...but this is not about personalities it's about musical abilities and Kanye is beating him by a small margin IMO

Quik's albums as a whole have more replay value than Kanye's do IMO...but there are certain songs that Kanye just killed that Quik can't fuck with IMO like Flashing Lights....Jesus Walks.......Through The Wire....Grammy Family....Common-Start The Show....Good Morning.....Touch The Sky, and a few others...

So I'll go with Kanye slightly.....

Helluva comparison.

To me

Quik = Frankie Beverly & Maze...Funky, not too layered and always groovin
Kanye = Earth, Wind & Fire...Very layered, diverse, bigger hits overall

Both are greats in their own right and I think that Kev pretty much nailed it in his assessment. Overall production wise I give Kanye the edge (just like I give EWF the edge over Maze)

Yeah i'm a Quik stan but this comparison is not a joke at all. Thats how I know haters when I see them. If you just do not like Ye's music because its just not your style you would simply say I prefer Quik because of blah blah. But to say stupid shit like Slang did shows pure hatin imo.

Quik all the way around for this listener...

I don't like Ye as a rapper at all. I'd love it if he just shut up and dropped instrumental albums.
I love both of their production abilities, but I think it's like comparing apples to oranges. Like Kev, Quik is in my top 3...Ye is 5 - 10. Replay value is a big indicator for me and I feel like Ye has very little of it.

Again...Quik for me.
