    That’s cool but don’t forget McGruff. Dude was right beside Cam, Mase and Big L. A lot of people overlook this next cat but dude had style: G Dep.

    I would mos def put Black rob on there before Jae millz. Shit I would put G-dep and Rob base before him. Jae millz USE TO BE ill but he’s on his young money corney shit. And NO HATERS it has nothing to do with him being on a popular lable,it’s the quality of music he’s made since then is weak. I’m comparing it to the bangers he put out in 05,06,07 Trust with no commercial appeal like Drake or Nicki Universal will NOT release his shit anytime soon and he’ll soon leave.
