I personally can't stand him, his voice is irritating and he uses it as a marketing ploy.

Wait, you're comparing classical rock bands to a modern day rapper? Or that's what the poll looks like. I think he's good, I don't listen to him much though.

no...he's the best modern mainstream rapper but compare him to any good rap such as NWA or the Wu-Tang Clan, he sucks.

but the poll isnt fair at all...to compare rap to great bands is like comparing peanut butter and jelly to infant sammichs

First of all, Lil wayne sucks, whats so little? He's effing huge.
The only Lil is his dick.

I hate his songs, what kind of song is lollypop? WTF.

I think you should be asking yourself, is rap good? I mean i can understand people who actually have a story to tell. Other than that, its just modern day disco. Anybody can rap, there are basketball players, actors, christ-even white kids are now rapping. No i'm not saying i can rap, virtually anyone can rap, with all the machines they have, and it make it sound like anybody they want it to sound like.

I don't know who it is but if you're comparing them to RHCP and Zep they're obviously gonna lose.

I love Lil' Wayne. When I first heard him, I hated him and wondered why everybody liked him. Then, some people I hang out with started listening to him more and I was around it more and I started to like him. It's the way he words things and he's got a really distinctive voice.

Honestly, what was so good about NWA? I'm so tired of people saying NWA was so great. They weren't. THEY ****ING WEREN'T! Ugh.

And yes, Lil Wayne is good. He's very good, actually.

TS, your poll sucks and you're ignorant.

Rap threads on UG always make me mad. I don't even know why I bother clicking them.

Pssh, the best modern mainstream rapper is Kanye, he beats Little Wayne by far. Also, no, Led Zeppelin are not a great band and most rap beats them out in my opinion. I do like RHCP, but I like a lot of rap better than them too.

Dont get me wrong man, i like SOME rap. If someone actually has something to say in a song i'll listen to it. But once it gets to be about bitches and hoes and all that, thats when its just too much. Actually its just mostly modern rap i dont like. I like some of the stuff from the early 90s and 80s.

Again, you know the roots are still releasing CDs, right? So is sage francis, lupe fiasco, murs, atmosphere... etc etc.

I hate it when people think that the stuff they hear on the radio and tv represents rap as a whole. They don't apply that logic to other genres. Does Nickelback represent metal?

Of course The Roots are amazing, but if we're talking about mainstream, Kanye's the best.

Erm, The Roots are mainstream.

And I don't get all the hype about Kanye, he's very boring to me. Boring production, boring rhymes...

Well, The Roots are mainstream, but I thought we were talking about like MTV mainstream. More people seem to know Kanye and Little Wayne than The Roots. I don't, I just think Kanye writes some great lyrics and he has good beats. That' just in my opinion though.

I've seen several Roots videos on MTV.

Yeah, I dunno about Kanye. I like something about him, but I just don't like to listen to his music.
