Murphy Lee outsold all them dudes. Has platinum hits and a gold album. Why is he on this list?

Edit: @ beat me to it

Also I stand corrected. I guess his album went platinum. Slapped for putting him on a list with these dudes.

Yes it is. He had the whole machine behind him and he failed to go platinum in the 90’s

Canibus!!!!!!

All those mixtapes, the freestyles, one upping Rakim and Nas when he came to vocabulary, 4321, the LL beef.... dude was like an upgrade of a rappers rapper, and no one heard a lyrical beast like him, especially with the knowledge

Then he drops the debut and wyclef puts him on some Hawaiian production smh


If 2000BC was his debut I think he would lasted longer in the game, but that debut threw everyone off.



Irv gotti with a FEROCIOUS beat!!!! Sounded like some sh*t DMX woulda used on IDAHIH

I was trying to add the poll the first time, dude said Canibus should be on the list, as I deleted the thread, I commented on his comment stating im bout to delete, because he was the only comment and I wanted his vote on the poll also. I duplicated the tab so I could make sure I added all the rappers and in doing so the poll option didn't pop up. Why would I lie about something so meaningless. Mad sh*t more important in life and why are you pressed about the editing of a hip hop forum thread. sh*t is beyond me, yall n*ggas lives must suck. Boxden is for sh*ts and giggles for me. It aint that deep for me
n*ggas lie for less on bx everyday b...i don't know u...it was a fair a*sumption

And my life is pretty awesome...

If we're being honest, as dope as I know he is, Jay Electronica probably belongs on this list too. Dude could've been the GOAT if he actually released material, but here we are.

Canibus, Murphy Lee and Drag-On all went Gold so I wouldn't day they flopped. I would say Papoose because a lot of people hyped him up, especially after the Touch It Remix, and then he never really popped after that.

n*ggas thought canibus was the second coming
Had arguably the hottest producer in the game
And a bunch of legit high profile features leading up
Add an instant classic beef with an icon and 2 hit records out of it?
Cataclysmic failure
Hardest flop easily, if you were around to see it
