    i heard an intresting comapason between big l and tupac the other day and it made me think a bit. they are kinda alike besides the obvious fact that they are both dead. both are noted for theyre lyrics being more than you aveage run of the mill ja rule type shit. both were gangster as fuck. both were murdered. but it goes furthrer than that i think. there is obviously a style clash between them being from diffrent coasts and such. i personally think big l could flow better than ANYONE i ever heard. tupac had some very good lyrics and his poetry was some of the best stuff i had ever read. so im asking all you other 12oz hip hop heads who you think was a better emcee. my vote is with big L. if you listen to track 4 on big l's the big picture that song deadly combination with tupac in it is really what promped this thread. is this a gay thread maybe but i figured i'd throw it out there and see what some people thought

    What's this motherfuckin rap game without L?
    Yo, that's like jewels without ice
    That's like china without rice
    or the Holy Bible without Christ
    or the Bulls without Mike
    or crackheads without pipes
    The Village without dykes
    or hockey games without fights.




    its pretty obvious who's better.

    haha i think so too peronally but i heard some people compaing them. a fair comparason? maybe not. i mean but i could see where they were coming from in a way. youever hear that wake up show freestyle with big l and jay z? man jz is shittier than i thought. and seeing a pic of him the other day really makes me wonder how he raps with them big ass fuckin cunt lips for lips....... fuckin catfish and shit. maybe we should compare big l to 50cent. HAHAHA. on that note i was unforutunatlly listining to his shitty ass cd and i detected a bit of lets not say biting but yea.....biting descrbes it pretty well, actually of big l. i mean why not he sucks he has to do something

    How can you try and compare the two?......they both had totally different styles and ways of going about putting out thier music.......they were both sick in thier own right.......the person I wish was still around to make music would have to be Charizma......that fool was gifted and way ahead of his time......if you don't know who he is/was....just check Peanut Butter Wolf's old shit from the early to mid 90's......and you'll see.

    tupac wasnt that great lyrically if you think about it.use your head of course big l has a much better flow and alot better with the technical stuff. tupac's shit was deeper though. its that simple.
