    Reducing Speakerboxxx/Love Below to the two lead singles from Andre is a bit unfair. There are 37 other songs on those albums .Ghetto Musick, The Way You Move, Prototype are fantastic back up singles and Big Boi's Speakerboxxx is a rapping masterclass. BB always seems overlooked in the face of 3K's otherworldly genius. Joe Budden put it best (and similar to the Messi/Ronaldo comaprisons)...''Big Boi could be the best rapper in the world. Unfortunately he's in a duo with the best rapper in the Universe''.

    Stankonia is the least perfect of all their perfect albums. But still perfect. It has 'Ms Jackson' on so I get why it may be seen as number 1. ATLiens is hauntingly astonishing. Andre's opening on 'Babylon'. The dark, hypnotic Organized Noise production. Elevators! That second album proved OutKast were the real deal and here to stay. They put the South on the map.

    OutKast have a perfect discography. Every single thing they've done is certifiable classic.

    Give the album 'Liquid Swords' a spin if you like Wu Tang. IMO the best solo Wu Tang album. There's a reason the call him GZA the Genius. A shame his crippling social anxiety and introvertedness means he doesn't do more.

    With GZA, Em is the best technical rapper on the list. He is one of Kendrick's favourites, labelmate and inspiration. Em also loves Kendrick and rates him as the best of the new crop. Em's latest output tends to lose him kudos, but he has more than enough in the bank for me. It's pretty much universally accepted that of the current crop Kendrick and J.Cole are levels above the rest. They also write all their own rhymes, which is important (Sorry Drake, for that you are out.)

    Very favourably. His content is far more important than anything Biggie ever did, whilst being a lyrical equal. Being a pedant, I'd put those 3 a bit further back than the previous gen. I'd put the previous generation as your 50 Cent's, Kanye's, Lil Wayne's, TI's etc. Of that era he smashes them all out the park. I'd put him in the godly category with Pac, Big, Andre 3k, Eminem, GZA, DMX, Black Thought, Scarface, Big L, Jadakiss, Rakim etc. It can be difficult to compare era's but if you break it down to lyrical ability, flow and content you get the best rappers.

    'These Walls' is too epic for a gig I think. Very long and has a lot of quiet parts. Of his current discography I'd love to hear the following. 1. Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe 2. Swimming Pools 3. M.A.A.D City 4. Backseat Freestyle 5. Money Trees 6. King Kunta 7. Blacker The Berry 8. Alright 9. Control 10. DNA 11. Loyalty And what a set it would be. A lot of epics not in there. All The Stars, Collard Greens, Poetic Justice and the whole of Section 80.

    Cracking album. 'Oxymoron' is my favourite from Q though.

    One would hope so, considering he's a founding member of Black Hippy.

    Who has the best TDE album not by Kendrick with 'Control System'.

    Overly Dedicated is also a wonderful piece of work. The lad don't miss. If/when he does get announced, I hope it's a lot more than just him from TDE. A Black Hippy reunion would be fantastic.

    No love for Section 80? Another impeccable album.
