Honestly, I understand where Khaled's coming from...but no. I can't say that these dudes in his list aren't talented, but a large majority of them are already at the top of their game. The most notable acknowledgments given are with his mentioning of Officer Ricky...that is all. Fat Joe could've been on this list a minute ago...maybe...definitely not now. His break out record as a "rapper" was "New York".
If anything, all this "article" shows me is how dated it is and how limited his range is. You can only improve but so much when you're any of the dudes he mentioned. The most progress they could make in my humble opinion is with their content. Most lyricists who reach the level of the artists mentioned in the article are technically sound, but more often than not choose to rap about the more shallow things in life. Anyways...check out the article for what it's worth. You can't have an article entitled most improved RAPPERS and use the word "hit" at least 8 times.
That being said I do wholeheartedly agree that Rick Ross is one of the most improved rappers as of late.
