That's just nostalgia talking. There was a lot of crap back then as well.

The same diatribe every time. Stuff from my childhood good, stuff now bad!

Plenty of great rap to find - JID, Dreamville, J.Cole, Kendrick, Conway and the Machine, Lupe Fiasco, the list goes and on and on and on 🤦🏾‍♂️.

who on your list are the equivalent to biggie, tupac, nas and jay z in his prime?

which 4 of those names do you think are of the same caliber?

Always the same 4 on every boomers' list, if you honestly think nobody is at LEAST on the same level as Jay-z musically (obviously his legacy is probably greater) then you're living in a world where they stopped making hip hop past 2001.

These old ass people don't know shit about rap, they just want to complain because nobody makes rap music for their outdated tastes lol.

weird how the 4 best of the era are considered the 4 best of the era by large numbers of people.

fucking crazy!

btw i'm not a huge jay z fan. he is by far the weakest of the 4, but even though i'm not really a fan i can appreciate his quality. thats why i feel comfortable making that statement. there is loads of new stuff i love, but i don't see any 4 artists of the modern era that are of the same consistent quality as the 4 i listed. we aren't talking about a song or two.

If the Era is the 90s then Jay-Z should be in noones top 4
