  • Tha OG

    TDE is the best rap label

    • OK.

  • ImKing

    These dudes gotta be on Drake’s payroll. It’s so obvious that they are sucking the blood outta his dick or vic versa. Everybody knows Kendrick is the truth, but unfortunately payola and popularity wins. THIS BLOG NEED 2 STEP THEY PUSSY UP AND STOP SUCKING DICKS. PeAcE.

      • ImKing

        (Maybe if you go all the way down on it you’ll get that raise) You funny. I’m happy you heard me tho. Have A Great Day. PeAcE.

      • CashlessClay

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Kendrick Lamar is the only nigga on the TDE that stand out.

    • jaja420

      people hate to hear this but it’s fact

      • el jim chapo guzman

        TDE is like the L.A.Lakers kobe Bryant can’t win by himself.

    • Da Business

      Stop it. U can’t front on the homie Q. Dude is a star in his own right.

      • el jim chapo guzman

    • Savimbi

      Hell just froze, I agree w/ you Francois!!!

  • idk

    I’m just curious, why y’all niggas at RR so bias towards drake? sfg a classic? come on bruh. drake is awesome but everyone’s biggest critiscm is that he doesn’t have a classic yet and kendrick has two. i wish elliott and b dot would be a little objective sometimes.

    • jaja420

      kendrick has 1

      • Faceless Hustlers

        Actually he has 4!!!

      • Hussle

          There are many types of work on internet. Some are very good that you may make a good deal of cash with , easily just giving some time sticking with your pc …But the main problem is we don’t know where to find such kind of jobs in a bulk of scams . You may look here , with little effort you may easily reach $8-9k a week and its totally free .I am doing this and advise you to look in here for sure …

      Here is the jigg!

      Drake is Lebron! He a stat monster! He has all the fundamentals for being a great one but when did Lebron got his ring? Right… so give Young Drizzy some time… he got it in him!

      And by the way for me Section 80 > GKMC

      Poetic Justice and Real are skipable for me!

      • Kris Kompute

        Agreed on S80 and the skipped tracks on GKMC

  • THE ALMIGHTY MIKEY ESCO!!!

    TDE FKN RUINED JAY ROCKS COMEBACK THAT ALBUM SUCKED!!! HE WAS SUPPOSED TO FEED THE STREETS …BUT NO THEY GOT HIM ON SOME EXPERIMENTAL SHIT!!! IT WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT TO TRUE JAY ROCK FANS!!! FK YO FEELINGS PUNCH!!!

    • ilexx

      I absolutely disagree with this assessment.

      Jay Rock album is one of the best albums released this year. I’m still listening to it. Great body of work.

      • THE ALMIGHTY MIKEY ESCO!!!

        I GIVE IT A 5/10 NOW STAY OFF MY COMMENTS BAMA!!!
        FK YO FEELINGS!!!

        • Guest

          The stop commenting on every post fuckboy!

  • Sonic

    So Far Gone is a classic and Drake is the most important rapper of this new generation. He changed the tide of hip hop. So Far Gone was also the start of mixtapes sounding like albums. Drake is more versatile musically than Kendrick Lamar. He makes hits for other artists too and his ability to create catchy hooks puts him on top.

    • Faceless Hustlers

      Drake has no classics nor will be a legend by doing albums with Faggot ass Future!!!!

    • Johnny Boy

      ”So Far Gone was also the start of mixtapes sounding like albums.”

      Have you ever listened to one of 50’s early mixtapes before Get Rich or Die Tryin’? Guess Who’s Back? Any G-Unit mixtapes? Dipset mixtapes? And I’m not even a Wayne fan but what about Da Drought or any of his Dedication mixtapes? Gtfoh…Drake didn’t start that shit on ”mixtapes sounding like albums.”

      Tell me how Drake is more ”versatile musically” than Kendrick. And makes hits for other artists? Like who?

    • Dark Matters

      Disqus made you the most important troll of this new generation. You changed the tide of hyperbolic commentary. So far you are the worst of ignoramuses sounding knowledgeable. You are more interesting comically than the Real Wack Weisel. You talk shit for other trolls too and your ability to create stupid yet interesting commentary puts you on top of the bottom.

  • ilexx

    “Y’all don’t do this for Hip Hop anymore, y’all do this for ratings.” – Punch hit you guys with the cold hard truth.

    You can’t keep dickriding shit. Quit it with the Drake and Future bs. Future is the hottest in the game like Ross was a few years ago, but yet Ross ain’t really move no records, just like Future is destined to end up. So what are we saying? When its hype its hype, no substance and no records moved. When there is no hype and records are moved, it shows you who the quality artists are.

    Stop pushing the hype artists to the forefront, its despicable.

    • Idiots

      You always say the realest shit

      • ilexx

        Thank you sir.

    • Da Business

      U sir, take a bow.
      👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    • SaniAbacha

      Word, life. Fax.

  • Viva La Raza

    Punch love his TDE Mexican fans but he dont believe in Mexican artists…
    …ok, good to know how you REALLY view my community.

  • ME

    they talking Mix tapes and forget Friday Nights Light

  • Faay

    There is no denying that Drake is more then capable to bring
    in the numbers, but my point is that everyone is trying to compare 3 different
    artists that don’t share the same goal. Even if they have claimed they wanted
    to be greatest, they still have their own different definition of that.
    Ask yourself do you remember when Reasonable Doubt dropped? Or
    Illmatic? The Chronic or even The Marshall Mathers LP dropped? There are albums
    that have dented the hip hop timeline and there are albums that have been soundtracks
    to summer.
    Look at the bigger picture: we all remembered the real
    classics and not the numbers of hits in a year.
