Peter Rosenberg Declares That We Are Living in the Rick Ross Era
Peter Rosenberg says if Rick Ross’, “God Forgives, I Don’t,” is as good as his previous albums he will be the best rapper in the game hands down. Do you agree?
all depends on what you define as the “best rapper”. IMO, Best rapper/mc? no, that will forever belong to Nas. Best as in worldwide popularity/achievements, no, that will forever belong to Jay Z. Best as in hottest in the game right now? Possibly,
Starting in 2009 this was the era that Drake built. So Far Gone caused the sound of hip hop to change back to lyrics (and also paved the way for soft raps and fake personas to be acceptable as long as the music is good). Rick Ross is just a major player in said era… Dude been around for years but hadn’t REALLY caught fire until 2010 with BMF.
i think he needs more creativity in his work but hey what do i know im just a music fan!
lo, simple answer NO!
No. Fuck no. Yeaaah no. Hell no. Nope, we are not. I CAN still name 15 rappers, that are actually puttin work right now better than his fat ass!!
@illerdude listen to what the man is saying. yes he is right. its not about who u personally like, its about whats hot. u could personally think soulja boy is the best does that mean he is the hottest dude in the game? no.
just cuz u dont like ross dont mean he aint the hottest in the game right now.just cuz he was a c.o. doesnt mean he aint the hottest in the game. just cuz he fat dont mean he aint the hottest in the game. his music bangs. when i didnt like 50 i understood he was the hottest, when i didnt like wayne i understood he was the hottest. gotta give it up
I totally agree with you Kings! You gotta respect his hustle. At the moment, he is the hottest in the game. even with his many flaws.
Aaaaaand you are not reading the post. that said “best rapper in the game”. not hottest. better go back to school homie. Hottest? who gives a crap? Best rapper? you know he’s not!
I gotta agree with illerdude…so wtf is kanye? Jay? Wayne? Drake? Nikki? It’s a lot of rappers “era” don’t knOw why this is a discussion
its funny , so what is considered to be hot ? when i see sway and them doing a list of mc’s that hottest in the game and the last thing they even talk about is can the person rap or not its f-cking sad ! wacka flack had made the list one year , ha . so if hot is just getting radio spins having a song playing in the club . then anybody hands would have to say its drake or lil wayne ! ross don’t get more play then drake or lil wayne . ross having mmg , wayne got young money , nick minaj just did the Super Bowl ! And drake is one of the biggest artists out ! so what are we really talking about when yal say hot ? if it goes back to lyrics son still lose ! ha if we talking about amount of hit songs Wayne and Drake got him there too . if talking about record sales Drake and Wayne got him there . so what is this based on ?
If you mean we are living in the fake emcee era where you dont have to be authentic in what you portray long as you make good music then yes we are living in the Rick Ross era…fake bloods, copy cat female pop emcees, LiL Bs, jeggings and skinny jeans…yeah its the Rick Ross era alright!
It’s funny how ya’ll hating ass niggas get so emotional over a nigga that doesn’t even know you exist.
I disagree, I don’t even really mess with Ross, but no hate.
the best rapper in the game naw
He is the “Hottest Rapper” in the game right now & has been consistent over the past 2 years. Stop hatin on somebody who is clearly puttin in more work than your favorite rapper.
No chance, his entire persona is fake, and he raps about the same thing in every verse. How can we allow a guy like him to be the “best rapper”. Tupac would have smacked him out by now.
HONESTLY can some one tell me why this man is gettin so much praise? What does he even have that makes him worthy of that title “best rapper in the game”.
com on son no Way!!! niggaz dont respect him. he got music . lol @lmllan9 2pac woulda neva let this nigga rock
WOW ! HELL NO ! THAT WAS THE TYPE OF COMMENT THAT GETS THE KOOL WHITE BOY F-CKED UP BY ALL HIS BLACK FRIENDS ! LMFAO First off let be clear people always giving rick ross props for the 50 cent thing . LISTEN TO ME !!!! ROSS LOST THAT BATTLE REALLY REALLY BAD !!!!! WHO CARES IF HE’S STILL AROUND THATS NEVER THE MEASURE OF A BATTLE ? YOU DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING THAT COME OUT OF OFFICER RICKY’S MOUTH ANYMORE BECAUSE OF 50 ! SECOND ROSS WAS DONE AND PUFF DUG THAT KAT OUT THE DIRT !!!! THAT TEFLON DON DID NADA LIKE 300, 000 ! HIS DISS SONG WAS WEAK ! THEN TRIPLE C’S FLOPPED ! YAL GOT SHORT MEMORIES ! THEN PUFF STARTED RUNNING AROUND WITH SON PUTTING HIM ON SONGS OH LETS DO IT REMIX , HELLO GOOD MORNING ,ECT ….AND LETS BE CLEAR 50 DIDNT EVEN START THIS BEEF ! plus he gets body on his own songs all the time , Nas just bodied him on triple beam dreams ect . lyrically i could name a plenty better mcs . everybody in slaughterhouse , j cole , drake , jadakiss , ect .. HELL THE F-ck no !!!
is this a joke? lol people live in this delusional phase where they actually think rick ross might be the best?
word@paper_touchin, i agree 1hundred! Mayb if this sorry ass lame pay respect to the nigga he stole his name from, then mayb he would be relivant… how da fuk u get paid from da “real rick ross” a nigga that was locked up in the feds, but cant chip a nigga off some cheese? thats backward ass hustlin if u ask me,… put on some old Tupac, DOC, DOGGPOUND, DRE, OLD SNOOPDOG,BIG DADDY KANE, RAKIM,JUST-ICE,… I can go on for days.. best in da game? FUK NO! this nigga trash……
see tahts a 50 fan for you right there. he thinks 50 exposed rick ross c.o. background. when any person living in the real worlds knows that thesmokinggun.com exposed rick ross c.o. almost 1 full year before ross and 50 beef started. ross started wit 50 to resurrect his career. and it worked.
and u sound crazy think ross needed puff to be on other ppls remixes? that is why ross is so popular he on everybody records, he aint even drop an album last yr and this is a legitimate discussion.
and niggas need to stop all that 2pac would do this and that. there were fake niggas around when pac was alive, pac wasnt the fuckin sheriff of hiphop callin out all fake rappers. shit he was standing right next to dre fake ass showing him love, then when dre left he called him all kind of names also. pac could care less about what u think is real and fake. fake rappers have always been here and will always be here.
newsflash ross aint the only nigga stealing names and exaggerating his gangster chronicles…50 stans smh
Get off rick ross dick
Its funny you must of forgot when it first came out that he was a c.o. ya boy ROZAY LIED and said it wasnt him !!!!! hahaha NO WONDER SHAGGY SOLD SO MUCH OF THAT RECORD !!! ” THEY EVEN GOT YOU ON CAMERA ” ” IT WASNT ME ” hahaha But what is this being his era based on ??? what lyrical ability ? No record sales ? no radio spins ? no ? Hit records ? no Awards ? no so what justifies this comment . AND AT THE END OF THE DAY THE MAN WHO MADE THE COMMENT IS STILL WAITING FOR A ALBUM THAT HASNT EVEN COME OUT YET !!! TO EVEN VALIDATE HIS STATEMENT !!!!!! THAT THING COULD COME OUT AND BE CANIBUS FIRST ALBUM !!! HAHAHA
im not even a wayne fan but id give it to him or drake before id give it to ross ! AND PLEASE PEOPLE PUT DOWN THE CRACK AND STOP COMPARING THIS MAN TO BIGGIE !!!! NOT EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS THAT MAN PERIOD !!!
@ALMIGHTY VL 4CH..It’s been said that rozay tried to help the nigga out,and break him off some paper when he got out ,but he didn’t want it,so he took him to court,that’s shit failed,so i guess ross got his money up and got better lawyers and took rozay again to court for 10 million,shit failed again,i understand what you’r saying,but ross is not the only nigga that took somebody name,so to only put him in that category is weak,the only difference is the nigga he took the name from is still alive.
Ross been on his grind to keep hisself revelant thats the only reason he hot….lyrically he ass and he stuffs his songs wit features so he kan get hot..wasnt nobody checkin for this nigga when he did hustlin…kause all his numbers didnt go above 200,000 but he went #1 i give him that ….he beefed wit 50 got murked by banks…he beefin wit jeezy all jeezy did was sell higher than him and remain the #1 Trapper……he gettin co-signs by niggaz he been fucked wit in the game….he was on def jam of kourse he gonna get jay z, nas etc on his shit….he hot for right now…even tho it took him 4 years to blow…
ya sum hat”n ass people real shit. i dont listen to nobody but ross, as long as he got haters he will continue to be da best rapper alive. so hat’n aint gon do nothin but help him get money . hands down he da hottest rapper right now haters
It was either Peter Rosenberg or his brother that said Earl Sweatshirt’s(Odd Future)mixtape was better than Nas’s Illmatic.I’m saying that to say this Peter says some really dumb things when it comes to hip hop.Rick Ross era,you have to be kidding me.And I am not hating,at times Rozay spit.Buuttttt overall he is poop,trash,and a bad look for the game as a whole.
NAH CUZ RICH FOREVER WAS PRETTY TIGHT BUT DIDNT PUT HIM OVER..HE’LL BE UP THERE AS 1 THE BEST RAPPERS IN THE LAST 3 YEARS..WE HAVEN’T HEARD NOTHING NEW FROM KANYE YET..BUT HE HAS BEEN GRINDING PRETTY SWELL THE LAST 5 YEARS THO..HE HAS BEEN CONSISTENT THO..
