They both seem to be be on that same level of Hip-hop music,when it comes to skill,musically and status in the game.This seems like a pretty good and even match-up.

Lyrically- T.I
Musically- Luda
Flow- Luda
Delivery Luda

Luda Top 40-50
T.I Top 50-60

lol I have (Chance The Rapper over both of them) downvote me (trolling)

Neither one of them are ‘'innovaters’‘ they both kind of capitalized off what was popular at the moment, seeing as how they have long careers you can see how they’ve had to adjust to each era , both going through the early 2000s, to the swag rapping phases, to where we’re getting back to where people are analyzing again lol. Luda is ahead for me because of his range of music/ subject matter that he’s been able to make , while T.I isn’t repetitive, he is just stuck in one mentality of rap , and me personally when he tries to venture out it never works ’‘Blurred Lines’‘ I FUCKING HATE THAT SONG SMH. I like both artist both have had great careers, neither of them would wow you with lyricism, or nothing of that nature but they both made enjoyable music. Ludacris though hasn’t produced a enjoyable song in awhile , he was to busy dissing Sean and Drake lol and T.I ehh Idk he’s off with his plastic duck wife and hasn’t been making any solo projects as of late either but I’d def bump a album if either one of them dropped something.

@D_.R.C

Good answer bruh….I agree with most of everything you posted,except I don’t think I would classify T.I. as swag-rap. he has done it…but he’s made a lot of real ass music IMO.

But good post.

@DrC

lol,yeah I said he has done it,but you definitely can’t classify him as a swag-rapper.

I don’t think I would classify T.I. as swag-rap. he has done it…but he’s made a lot of real ass music IMO.

And even with that song,if you actually listen to his lyrics…

All my verses picture perfect, only spit to serve a purpose
You ain’t living what you kicking then you worthless
Looking from the surface it may seem like I got reason to be nervous
Then observe my work to see that my adversity was worth it
Verses autobiographical, absolutely classical
Last thing I’m worried about is what another rapper do"

AND

Sell a lot of records, I’ll respect it and salute that
But spitting real life on hot beats I’m the truth at
You kick it like me, no exaggeration necessary
Living revolutionary, nothing less than legendary"

He’s spitting REAL shit,not swag-rap.You still made good points in your original post though.

TI easily

I prefer TI, but Luda is better for guest verses

September 17th, 2013

T.I. definitely top 10 (he’s my idol), Luda maybe top 20. Although Ludacris does have an interesting flow, distinctive voice, etc., I just don’t love corny punchlines (and I consider all puns corny). Plus, I’m not sure he’s capable of being anything other than comedic. T.I., on the other hand, tends to eschew punchlines in favour of content, and while he does spit real shit, he doesn’t get caught up in boring-ass social commentary (cf. Lupe Fiasco). Both rappers can make legitimately fun songs, and that’s something we hip-hop elitists tend to ignore; partly for this reason, both are distinctly underrated.

Luda can flow like crazy!…but people overlook him cause he’s comedic alot.

But he can make serious songs.

TI has a more serious tone more often than Luda and is really good lyrically

I think they’re both at least top 25 of all time.

My pick is T.I.
