    Wayne and Cam both are real overrated.

    Of the ones who are saying Beezy is on the lower end of the totem pole, how many of you have actually listened to Ain’t Going Back? >D

    I don’t see how this can be the prevailing logic:

    and you count Beezy out, if you’ve heard his project. Son hit on all those marks. :lol:

    This is probably the perfect comparison, though no one ever put Carmelo over guys clearly better than him like people have with Birdman’s son

    You can barely tell Gunna and Baby apart on the same tracks. Their differences are extremely marginal. But they are better than Young Thug simply by just focusing on music and not reaching for every gimmick in the book.

    Yela Beezy sounds nothing like Bankroll Fresh though, that’s almost insulting

    Thug still gets the edge over them. His voice is an instrument. Gunna and Baby have the exact same flow, tone, and cadence on their tracks.

    And agreed. Beezy doesn’t sound like Bankroll. At all. :lol:

    @Peep Game

    Yella Beezy def sounds like Bankroll. In fact, on his song that blew up...he used Fresh’s “poppin ****” flow and even distinctly shouted him out in the line.



    I rock with Yella Beezy. But he ain’t seeing Lil Baby (and they aren’t similar). Baby discography already crazy. And it’s just a year and change in.

    Baby isn’t a “thug clone” either. What he does is pretty different from what Thug does. Although they can go into similar pockets and sound alike on tracks. Lil Baby has his own distinct flows, pockets and melodies. His rollercoaster melody and stop and pop flow are all his.

    Even Kodak playing with it now.

    Even if you count Thug using gimmicks he still outdoes Baby & Gunna. Musically nothing Baby nor Gunna has done has impressed me the way Thug has.

    It's hard for me to compare the three because I just got on to all of them so I'm not deep in the research on em but at the depth that I'm at, I'm def preferring Beezy. Mostly because Gunna and Baby use the same flow far too often and Beezy has a better ratio for knowing with flow to use on a track. On that Up One Remix, Baby flow didn't match as well as Beezy's because Baby stuck with the tried and true flow

    Up one was a “jump on feature” for lil baby. That ***** mailed it in on there. He literally has like 100 features with bubbling rappers where you can tell it’s a cash grab :lol:. Go actually listen to TOO Hard and Harder then Hard. That’s where he showcases his range on those projects. Harder than Ever too.

    I wish Gunna was on QC, he bout to let Thug **** his career up. With the buzz since DS3 he should’ve been dropped another project

    Too Hard was the first project I listened to for Lil Baby and I'll run it back but I do remember there was a string of songs if not all of them had the same flow and sounded like one long song that was ruined the mood. To be clear, the music sounds nice, but to hear that same flow over and over wore me out

    Young Thug is a weird *** _ but he talented as ****. Lil Baby baby does nothing better than him. Flows, melodies, nothing.

    I was literally just thinking this the other day. He's lost a lot of momentum.

    You gotta peep Harder than hard :pimp:




    Bonus :pimp:



    But I know the flow you’re talking about. It CAN get repetitive. But it works and is kinda his “signature”. He leans on it too much sometimes. But I rock with it.

    That's what I got when I checked him out. He got boring, ok to listen to but nothing different about him.

    Huh? Gunna on fire right now :lol:. What y’all talking bout. His momentum going up. The ***** Touring with Travis Scott right now. Had a #1 album a month ago, a top 5 record...and reintroducing the masses to Drip season 3 that they missed earlier in the year.

    His Colors joint doing numbers. They doubling back now and just getting on his old ****.

    He not dropping enough of his own music imo...Drip Harder was straight but it coulda/shoulda been a lot better. He reminding me of when Thug first started with just the features and loose tracks every now and then. Look how Baby and QC kept hitting *****s in the head with project after project.

    That's his biggest flaw to me and why Beezy edges him out for me. I listened to Harder Than Hard when it dropped, it's a good album because he switched it up some

    i always choose content over mixtape rhymes but if what your saying is, prefix is a better mixtape than the black album is an album, crazy as it may sound, i think theres a conversation to be had here.

    always thought TBA was strong but i never felt like it was an auto classic like most.

    prefix was about as dope as a mixtape could possibly be. lol
