What makes someone the king of rap?

Cos I would say DOOMs been consistent for years now but because he's more underground people ignore him

There is no king. Shit is stupid. How are we judging this? Popularity?If that's the case then the argument should be whose marketing is the best in the game.

But on another note, Papoose IS the king of new york:

There can only be one King.

King Hov



Kanye is chasing Hov meanwhile Hov chasing the Beatles.

Nah not Hov..Kanye is probably the best real hip hop "artist" in recent memory. The production of his songs are second to none.

real hip hop? lol

There is no such thing as real hip hop but if there was, Kanye West is no where near real hip hop. Kanye West is pop.

Jay-Z is well past his prime. I think Kanye is still forward looking.

I feel limiting Kanye West to just being a king of Hip-Hop (which is in an OKAY condition rite now) kind of undermines his success. The dudes literally the reason why sum white folk still give attention to da culture. RAPPERS dont sell out Arenas in music. King Of Hip-Hop...Nah, Hov and Em are gonna have to fight that one out...Kanye's just one of the Greatest Artists of this current over-saturated generation. simple as that

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
IM A LAME FOR THIS
