Exclamation #1 Rap/Hip Hop Artist Right Now According To ISH

I know I stole this from statman but it's a pretty good idea to get people's opinions and open discussions....

SCREW IT!! voting is out the window, just discuss who you think is the hottest rapper..keep it poppin

Edit: I just got home from work, and I'm dog tired, plus I knew nobody was gonna take this seriously but it turned into something greater than just voting for your favorite rapper, I've seen alot of good discussion so far...re-pop off

See here's my take on 50...Get Rich Or Die Trying of course will forever be a classic, and The Massacre was heavily slept on, that album was dope but people weren't feeling it because he switched his style up and started talking about having so much money and not being hungry...Curtis was a great album too, but it was just smothered by the competition hands down. But now 50 is just on some other sh*t that I CANNOT co-sign...for instance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP5yTU_iMh4
This Type 'O Sh*t ? C'mon 50 what are you doing? dont step outside of your element like that, ....he's one of those dudes who just raps better when he's starvin for bread, now that his belly is full he's become a laz-e-boy

how does music and artist grow if they dont try new things... how does the game grow if artist stays in their element... you gotta take risk...

look at common he grew from common sense a more traditional hip hop style to some next shiz....
