Who's the best lyricist Wayne or Kanye?

I don't think either one is a great lyracist. both have their moments when they have a nice line here or there, but I dont think either should be recognized for their content...more for their delivery.

VIBE Said This dude is in the same Class as Biggie, Jay, Eminem, Big L, NAS?

This dude just threw a little grimey twist on a now typical eminem/elzhi flow pattern. He even COPIED ELZHIS LINE, with that "9 months preg-en-ant" break up. Someone who knows elzhi please tell me what track that is. Dudes just copy/pastin other dudes flows to me. Ionno

Shrinking shit n shit

If you're talking about the waist on your jeans being too big, you're probably better of going to a tailor. A hot soak can tighten it up for right now, but it's going to stretch back with wear. If you want more specific advise, you should post in the denim section.

The Official Levi's Thread

I got soaked to the bone walkin in the rain yesterday and my LVCs def. fit shorter for it after drying. I wore them til they were almost dry, and they're holding the creases pretty good after, but I swear they're an inch shorter. Least I wasn't wearing white kicks...it woulda been ugly. I'd also like to see what yours are looking like ant...I need some motivation to keep wearing mine lol.

[FS] Nike Air Yeezy (ZEN) Sz.9 (iScotty's Raffle)

the mod is going to be there, to literally pick the winner out of a pot or something? I'm not tryna dominate the thread or anything, but it will probably help get more people involved if they feel like they know all the details, and who exactly is involved supporting it.

[FS] Nike Air Yeezy (ZEN) Sz.9 (iScotty's Raffle)

If it was 45-50, then buying 5 would in fact give you a 10% (or more) chance. If it was like that and had someone present to witness, or video taken, I would be in. For something like this, I doubt it would be that hard to find a mod or more senior member of the forum to be present to oversee it. I know there's a bunch of ppl. on the board around SD that'd probably be willing to take part. Lol. The more I think about it, the more I want in...I like gambling too much.

[FS] Nike Air Yeezy (ZEN) Sz.9 (iScotty's Raffle)

You've gotta set a specific number of total tickets to be given out, or the raffle makes no sense really. spending $12 on a ticket makes sense if there's say 75, but not if there's 2,000. Obviously that's an exaggeration, but you get the idea. You've gotta be able to see what your odds are to know if it's reasonable. I already got a pair, but I might be down to just for fun if it looks like it's set up straight.

The Official Levi's Thread

is there any fixing this? I got a pair of LVC 1947s (my first pair of jeans that I paid over $50 for lol) 4 days ago, and I already managed to fvck them up =/ There I was, pleased as hell with my new purchase (and myself for joining the ranks of quality denim owners), happily enjoying the homewrecker burrito I had ordered at Moes, and the damn tortilla decides to basically explode on me =0 Beef everywhere. Cheese all over my tray. Random lettuce pieces on my shirt...and these two big ass globs of hot sauce right on my thigh. I was tight. I didn't even think about the possible effects it would have on the jeans when I went to try to wash the stuff off. I just got a little water on my finger and like rubbed the sauce until it disappeared....then when I stopped for a second to look at what I was doing I saw that I had basically just turned the red sauce spots into 2 blue spots =( Now my deadstock 1947s look like they have blueberry stains lol. Is there any way of fixing this, or did I basically just ruin these? I assume that it'll become less noticeable once I soak them, but I hadn't really intended to do that for awhile and even then won't the spots still be visible? Any insight is appreciated.

Jay-Z diss to Fat Joe

Saying fat joe hasn't been relevant since pun makes no sense, cuz joe didn't even get real fame until pun died. Lean back's his biggest hit, and it came years after pun past. I'm not tryna defend the guy cuz it's really not even my style of music, but the truth is, joe wasn't relevant UNTIL puns passing. That said...yeah...this is old

Name A Lyricist, Rapper, MC, or Artist That Could Challenge Big L or Big Pun?

You may be right. I don't know. When it comes to pun, I look at capital punishment and I look at yeah baby, and I see 2 completely different products. I just can't see how that album would be released as it was, with him around. Life after death and the big picture can claim the same issue as far as release times, but they aren't so different from that artists other work to look unfinished like yeah baby. Maybe it's a fall off, maybe it's really just an unfinished product. We'll never know, but looking at puns other work, I give him the benefit of the doubt, and say it was out of his hands.

Name A Lyricist, Rapper, MC, or Artist That Could Challenge Big L or Big Pun?

I wouldn't count yeah baby for the same reason I wouldn't count any of the makaveli pac albums. You can say it was "done" before he died, but since it wasn't actually released by him on his own accord, I don't think it's right to judge him on it. He may or may not have actually put it out like that. Pun and big L might have more similarities in their subject matter than pun and pac, because its two NY emcees, versus one east coast and one west coast emcee. That said, big L doesn't have an tracks like I'm laughin at you now or caribbean connection, and pun doesnt have anything like ebonics or street struck. I would like to see someone post a pac verse that is lyrically on par with the pun/big L verses posted. I'm not even jus talkin about punchlines. I'm talkin about a whole range of things...complexity of the lines, story telling, tempo, etc. I mean...what is lyricism beyond line complexity, story telling, varying tempo, and punchlines? Pac was only average at all of it.
