I have a few short and sweet words to describe this man. He IS the black Eminem, he raps about his life and everything that has effected him as a person. I've said all i can truly say, i'll let your ears figure the rest out.

Really? Honestly he's one of the best rappers of this generation. He raps about life. People are so caught up in Drake that they look past him.

Kid Cudi >>>Drake

Of course this is just my opinion. Drake sold out quicker than the iPhone 4. His newest album? Rap? More like R&B. And to everyone who likes Drake's raps. Lil Wayne writes almost all of them.

The best rappers alive IMO (no order):
Eminem
Nas
Jay-Z
T.I.
Kid Cudi
Lil Wayne
Kanye West
Outkast (Andre 3000 and Big Boi)

Almost every rapper that I mentioned has a different sound and just because Cudi has a different sound doesn't mean he's shit.

He's ok. People are trying to be different and your either going to love it or hate it. If you want more of the same, listen to all of Young Money's people...If you want difference, listen to the soloist's and such.

Why does the lyrics and meaning of his words has to be overlooked by his style and voice? sure, his voice might not be awesome, and he might be "a terrible 'singer'", but i don't think his voice is bad and i think his music is very good. So, i'm asking, why should cudi be laughed at in comparison to Em, in my eyes, cudi is more diverse, eminem's song always FEEL the same, not saying they are, just that they do.

word @ eminem's song's feeling the same, that's one of the main reasons i disliked recovery as much as i did. cudi's next album will most likely be better, he'd have to really work at it to make a worse album lol

just laughed at it cause imo they're nothing alike

"Man on the Moon" was one of my favorite albums of the decade. While his lyrics aren't the best, and he is definitely NOT the black Eminem, he is a great artist.

(Drake is R&B. Ever heard "So Far Gone"?)

(Drake is R&B. Ever heard "So Far Gone"?)

But he constantly refers to himself as a "rapper." What bothers me more is that people seem to believe that Drake writes all of Lil Wayne's raps. I highly doubt that -_-

Believe me. Wayne's next album is going to very hot. Drake's debut album wasn't even that good. The fans were promised a rap album and he decided to make an R&B album.

Also while we are on the topic of the "next Eminem", please take a look at Cage. Bone chilling lyrics and raps from the heart.

that's a first, a wayne fan who doesn't like drake lol

i wouldn't doubt wayne's next album being hot. Anyone who's heard so far gone and has been following drake had an idea of what to expect from his album, especially with him sayin 'it picks up right where So Far Gone left off'. TML > So Far Gone.

Cage is alright, doesn't really tickle my fancy though

2 things wrong with this post:

1- Lil Wayne should never be in anyones top list, I dont care if it your opinion or not, hes horrible. Everything pre-"lollipop" was decent, and now hes.........see? I don't even know what to say lol, words can't express how much he sucks, "IMO"..

2- Kid Cudi is good, but no way better than Drake. End of story

I don't think a Drake fan can question the opinion of a Lil Wayne fan. It's not that I expected TML to be a rap album, its just flat out a bad album, whatever genre you stick it to.

Exactly. It was terrible.

Oh and I will stick to my opinion. Everyone has their right to their own opinion. Kid Cudi>>>Drake for various reasons. Drake is only "good" because he is very mainstream while Cudi has had very little airplay compared to Drake.

Effect is a noun. Affect is a verb. You're looking to say affected, not effected. ALL HEIL GRAMMAR NAZIS.

Back on topic, I really dislike Kid Cudi. Not as bad as Drake, but still, you really can't compare him to Eminem.

One song? Day n' Nite only got airplay. All those Top 40 listeners only like that song. That's a huge percentage of the population. I bet most of them never heard his first mixtape, which in my opinion was one of the best mixtapes ever.

I think we're not going to see eye to eye on this. Cudi is imo just an average rapper, sometimes a nice catchy beat and a good feature but nothing more. My reckoning is he won't be known any better in 5 years and probably quit.
The reason i said we won't agree is you have an appalling list there. There are so many names you could put above and beyond that list, so i'll just do one - KRS One.

He is from Cleveland, Ohio. So America.
Also, i listen to the radio when driving, which isn't to frequent, and when i do, i usually listen to the death metal stations, but when i have changed stations, all i've heard is the TERRIBLE Day 'N' Night CROOKERS mix.

CuDi is, in my eyes, far better than drake. If Drake is in young money, which sings that horrible song about nikki's pussy on someones sideburn, i automatically lose all respect in his ability as a rapper. and when you say you are going to come out with a "rap" album, and it's R&B, then you're also a hypocrite in my eyes.

CuDi raps, and not only that, he can freestyle VERY well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRSktjwf42Q

and he also has a fairly nice voice, as shown by this(a free download for All Summer is at the bottom of the youtube description if you're interested.):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uas-mc7HjW8

he has also shown significant interest in other musical styles, as he has done another song with Vampire Weekends(Rostam is VW's drummer) background of Ottoman

YouTube- Cudderisback (Ottoman Remix) - Kid Cudi ft. Vampire Weekend

i think i've made it pretty fuckin clear he is better than Drake (in my eyes). He may not be better than Em for others, but he is to me aswell.

This guys has to be the worst thing that ever happened to hip hop along w/ Lupe Fiasco.

This guy has nothing to rap about. He's better off being an R&B singer.

American, I'm also a big fan of his. Not really into hip hop either. It is nice to hear something different other than money n' hoes and the like. Gonna try to find some of those mix tapes other have mentioned.

ooo0ooooooo0ooo
08-20-2010, 10:17 PM
From the little that I've heard from CuDi, I can conclude that he's way better than all of these new rappers that do nothing but have lyrics about

A. Pussy(Lil Wayne)
B. Drinking
C. Dancing(Soulja Boy specifically)
D. Smoking
E. Killing People

That's not life. Especially Not the killing part. No rapper is so called "hard" they're just like every other rich person, afraid to anything but threaten people with their lawyers. And I'm not just ayingthis because I dislike rap. I have about 1500 songs in my Rap folder...
