Kanye West thinks Lil Waynes best rapper alive

Posted By on May 14, 2007

All i gotta say is about time more people are giving it up to Lil Wayne, the dudes a beast on the mic and no one is even close to touching him right now in my opinion. He is doing so much work with so many people and has stayed consistant (unlike Gille Da kid who cant even release an album because no one plays it).  

Lil' Wayne obviously thinks he is the best. Kanye West doesn't argue. The two have recently linked up to record tracks that they feel are "incredible." Now, with both careers on an upward climb, the two have hooked up once again for more tracks. Recently Ye spoke on this.

"I'm making beats. The dude is the hottest rapper…We already made some songs that are incredible. I'm not going to tell you who's on them, but I can talk my sh–, 'cause we already got a couple of bangers under the belt. Hopefully I can deliver some product with him to push it to MTV even more, where hopefully he'll be opening up some award shows and getting his rightful spot. Right now he's ripping down every mixtape, going crazy with it. It's unabashed, raw lyrics. I think it's the realest form of hip-hop right now," he told MTV.

He also added that he has recently revisited old Wayne joints for inspiration.

"I went back and listened to this Juvenile album 400 Degreez, and [Wayne] was snappin'…Lyrically not letting up. I liked his intonation, his patterns, his punch lines, his whole story. That's what got me interested. It's music. It's product before publicity. I need to get off the mic right now and go to the studio."

In related news, Devo Springsteen spoke on the current label situation with G.O.O.D. Music. For the record, it's still alive.

"I don't know the ins and outs, legally, what is what, but I know I just got back from L.A. and I was in the studio with Kanye, Common and Sa-Ra, and I know I'm going to Japan on tour with Consequence at the end of the month…So it's still there and it still exists and everyone is still putting out records. GLC's album is gonna have a G.O.O.D. Music logo. I'm in talks to put out a G.O.O.D. Music major-label album. It's definitely still there. … There's not a central distribution place [at the moment], but the movement is still there."

    Kim Scott is still abusing me. I am not friends with her sisters nor cousins either. She abuses Marshall too, and Isis, and etc.
