if it were rap in general, i'd agree for the most part, but that list seems to be picking out acts with a certain mentality and not all of his lyrics fit with it.

"Brenda's Got a Baby," "Keep Ya Head Up," "Changes," Dear Mama" are all incredible songs.

His gangsta influenced work seems to be exactly against the purpose of the list, though, imo..
Forget the damn list, and forget the word "purist". I wish I had never written the bloody things. I just want to have a discussion about real hip-hop.

Everything Tupac did was pure fucking gold.

I think Eminem is an incredible rapper.

He just has the way weaving autobiography and social commentary together, and I've rarely heard a rapper able to make his voice one with the beat(if that makes any sense) the way Eminem does.

I really think 'Cleaning Out My Closet', 'Sing For The Moment', 'Lose Yourself', and 'The Way I Am' are some of the greatest rap songs ever put to a record.

Those are good songs . I also really like "Stan". Creepy little song, that one.

There's a handful of Eminem songs I like quite a bit, and Stan is one of them. I think it's really well done.

What about M.I.A.? She incorporates a bunch of styles in her music, but raps a lot. I think she's aces.

I'll leave now.

Talib Kweli, Mos Def and J5 are the best.

I spend something like 6+ hours driving around yesterday with the car radio on and at some point they played "A bit of U2" by Kiss AMC

I had forgotten about that one
and in retrospect KISS AMC still doesn't belong pn a purist list
