He's definitely had his moments but he's put out way too much cack to be considered the best.
I agree with you that his first two albums where his best but i also think "Computers and Blues was a very good album.... "Never went to church" from "The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living album was one of his best songs and i still believe that a greatest hits album will be a good selection of songs.

I just read his book and the funny thing i noticed about his music career is that his best album "Original Pirate Material was reorded using Fruity Loops and when he got signed he started using Logic. I think he had to keep to the streets style but tried to complicate it and the whole streets mantra was a young geezer from london, smoking spliffs and taking drugs but also living. I think mike skinner grew outta the streets and thats why people started not to like what he was trying to do. The Streets was recorded in his box room in his rented flat it was this simplicity that made the streets who the were, a cult classic.... Complicating it made it not simple... Thats just my opinion, i don't think anyone could keep up the streets for as long as he did...

If you know anything about hip hop you'll know that sales dont reflect talent.

Are you seriously still trying to use sales as a gauge of a rappers talent?

You remind of the young lads in school who were convinced that Jordan was the greatest looking woman in the world because she had DDD knockers.

If anything the sales argument proves Wiley is the best. 50 times more people have listened to The Streets yet he's still holding his own in the poll.

Mike Skinner has big sales due to the white rapper effect. See also Professor Green, Devlin and Example.

Devlin only came out last year.. thats why i never put him up, but with regard to the white & Black situation i'm not even gonna start talking like that cause music is music and leave it at that..

It was all over MTV for a few months about 4 or 5 years ago, actually not bad by jamie t's standards.


But his standards aren't exactly high.
