n*ggas is funny..

Y'all know if they had put Nas or BIG at the #1 spot n*ggas wouldn't give a fu*k who was listed at the #7 or #35 spot.

But because it's Hov n*ggas gon try to scrutinize the list to find ANYTHING they don't agree with so they can say "null and void"

If the list didn't mean anything to you, n*ggas wouldn't be in here writing paragraphs

Why wouldn't he be?

The list is Greatest Hip Hop ARTISTS

Not best technical rapper (like I know a lot of the geeks in here are taking it as)

Diddy been relevant in the game since '93

The n*gga is a Hip Hop Staple/Icon/Household name


Explain to me why he wouldn't be on this list?

Sales matter when providing reasons why Jay is the GOAT but they never do any other time. I wonder why that is

Sales obviously matter, I mean that's how they are known and is going to be a big piece of every rappers(and musicians in general) legacy. So for a list like this of course sales are being taken into consideration, it is a list of best artists, so sales is going to be a factor whether you like it or not.

Even removing sales the case can easily be made for jay being the #1 rap ARTIST from new york. Biggie didn't have enough years to truly grow and express himself and release more music to be listed higher than jay. But I wouldn't be mad at a list not taking sales/commercial success into consideration listing nas/jay/big in any order for 1-3 because that's how it should be. But I mean this is boxden, jay haters are the first people to post in jay threads and you can count on them being in any thread with jay z in the title hating yet they call others jay stans. seems backwards.

The uproar should be over the rest of the list not the top 3(i.e. diddy @ #7 etc)

“hate isn't healthy, it damages the hater more than the one who's hated!”

I can respect Diddy's gifts for promotion and networking, he's an excellent businessman and has consistently been a tastemaker for over a decade... But to call him a rap artist is a travesty, b... Never wrote his own lyrics or actually made any beats... And as far as what he's done for NYC hip hop, since bringing BIG out he has halted careers and ruined the lives of most of the guys he worked with...

That aside I can live with this list, clearly the author has their own view of the history and culture of NYC hip hop though...
