His sales have NOTHING to do with raps influence...sorry thats how Hip Hop works...your posted all that good sh*t...and he STILL had no where NEAR the movement the Neptunes, Missy, and Timabaland had....These n*ggas changed the CULTURE bruh...there is NO stat for that...but it's a fact, Who in rap had a bigger crossover appeal than Pharrell? Go ahead...I'll wait....Same goes for Missy...Do NOT post production credits for Eminem when Missy shattered goals and got grammys and nods for her songs, albums, and other peoples albums...when you change a culture and people start to mimick your sound style and image then YOU are the bigger influence and you are the person who's running it..
How many n*ggas knocked off Neptune's beats?...How many knocked off an Eminem beat? (none...it doesn't happen )
How many n*ggas changed a cultures dress code? (You seen the way Marshall dresses?!??)...Made them accept another genre of music that was regarded for "white folks"
I mean damn Timbo and Missy had cats bouncing to Go Go tracks even..
Who was the go to producer or sogwriter to guarentee that smash single or album...It's NEVER been Eminem...
His influence in the 2000 is LIMIITED...He's a dope lyricists but for all his sales he doesn't compete with The Neptunes and Missy Elliot...I mean jesus christ have you seen The Neptunes production credits?!?!?? It's fu*king bannanas! Where you wearing Bapestas before the Neptunes introduced it? Trucker hats? Where you a black kid skateboarding? Did you make tracks that EVERY n*gga made a verse to on their mixtape? Did you help breathe life into Justin Timberlake's solo career?
The Neptunes did that, Timabaland did that, Missy did that...Not Em and there is NO stat for it.
sh*t Jay-Z even had a bigger influence...But there is no need to list all his accolades...word to Elvis and The Beatles. Selling out concerts in MINUTES MULTIPLE times...Em doesn't like to tour we know... but he wasn't the only one n*ggas was coming to see on the Up in Smoke Tour...that sh*t was RIDDLED with heat from top to bottom...so he can't even claim that one for himself even tho he had a big part to do with it....But Snoop was on fire, as well as Ice Cube and West Side Conneciton, Xzibit, The Dogg Pound, and others besides the fact Dr. Dre was on it as well....That was an All Star tour so of course it did the numbers it did...It was NOT a Eminem tour...But we know how Jay-Z tours and conerts go now don't we? n*ggas got his own color for a car made by Chevy and damn near tanked the BMW X5 for n*ggas in the hood hahaha...
So what Em was dubbed best rapper alive by Vibe...it's Vibe...Notice how he wasn't dubbed that by The Source or XXL...There is a REASON for that...and we're not even gonna get on the Rolling Stone, The Grammys are bullsh*t (well...atleast for hip hop they are...that's also a known fact )
Em is a very talented cat...I love the dude honestly...he's hated on for no reason by alot of folks...But to say HE owned the 2000's?...nah Bruh...he had his moments..but over a 10 year period??? He falls a bit short...If he never went into hiatus maybe...but he did so there it is.
Oh yeah I don't mean to sound like a d!ck...I curse alot and sh*t when I talk and type...
thread title is Kanye owned the 2000's
"No other hip hop artist has contributed as much to the 2000's
like Kanye West"
It never mentions contribution to hip hop he says contributed to the 2000's...
Sorry to get technical but i"m not illiterate when were we talking about raps influence?
For hip hop I give you Kanye for sure..
For the 2000's its Eminem by a landslide... in 20 years "highest selling artist of an entire decade" doesn't go away... dope producer does sorry to say..
