Good? NO. This guy is a sexist, homophobic, whiny jerk. Saying that the greatest rapper is white is not right. Black people started rap and this guy ruined it. I am white myself, but Logic is probably the only good white rapper. - 445956

Jesus Christ chill, people can have opinions of what they like - venomouskillingmachine

His fans just seem a little bit annoying...

He is the highest rated rapper on Metacritic, and I still think he's awesome. But he's not even the best new school rapper in my opinion. - venomouskillingmachine

He's one of my favorites but he is overrated. He did write his lyrics later in his career (when he first started out, he didn't really, but later in the 90s. He did) but the only reason people say he's the best member of NWA is because he's dead. Ice Cube was the best member. Eazy did create NWA but so did Ice Cube. If he was still alive, people wouldn't be saying the stuff they say about him now

Can agree with this. As influential as he was, half his lyrics in NWA was written by Ice Cube and MC Ren. - BIG260911
