Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn't a national holiday (or thereabouts), Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

Bun B: Louis CK, because he's the most honest.
Renzo: I'm digging Ron White's style these days. Very professional with his sets, and he drinks scotch during them. I also think that Dave Chappelle is coming back soon. When he does, he'll be the funniest. Can't fuck with his thought pattern.
Mac: Ken 2 the Fool. He is a natural. I've seen him work so many crowds easily.
Chingo Bling: George Lopez is winning. TV shows, sitcoms, films, tours; it doesn't get better than that. Reppin' La Raza well.
Chuckway: Mike Epps*.
*Almost all of these Rap Round Table discussions, Chuckway responds with some sort of "I don't partake in that" answer. That's why we included his short, short answer here. He's cool.
Mr. Wired Up (Oh Boy): For me, it's Affion Crockett and Billy Sorells. They both know how to not only crack jokes but entertain the crowd as well.
Kyle Hubbard: Crazy timing. I just finished watching a documentary about this comedian Bill Hicks. He was from Houston, but he passed so he obviously doesn't count. I don't really stay current with comedians. Louis CK was the last standup I saw and it was hilarious. I don't have much to compare to, but personally, he is my favorite. At the moment, at least.
Jack Freeman: Hard to say. You got Epps, Hart, Galifianakis, Schwartzman, Ferrell. Really depends on my mood most times.
Chane: Right now, Kevin Hart. That Seriously Funny movie had my eyes watering from laughing so hard.
Delo: Kevin Hart [because] he don't waste all his material on Twitter like Duval. And Katt Williams wanna rap.
Medicine Girl: I must ride with dat vato George Lopez.
