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...
So by this logic, if they ever do a list of the Greatest West Coast Hip Hop Artists, then Dr Dre shouldn't be considered at all.

He may be the only artist in the game who's written less verses than Diddy.

But I'm sure you have some double standard excuse for why Dre is different than Diddy

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!”


some potent ether right here

So it's agreed then.

Any list of the "Greatest West Coast Artists" that mentions Dr. Dre is a joke too then right?

Jay-Z don't care about n*ggaz anymore, only he's white fans

plus remember when Jay-Z tried to compared Gay marriage to race/skin color

I can't complain, Jay-z is 1 of the best to ever do it.


nicky minaj and diddy made the list

weak troll game but i will entertain it for the time being

"I arrived on the day Fred Hampton died
Uhh, real n*ggaz just multiply
On December 21 I was supposed to die
So I'm out here celebratin my post-demise
If you put crabs in a barrel to insure your survival
You gon end up pullin down n*ggaz that look just like you
What up Blood? Uhh, what up Cuz?
Uhh it's all black, uhh, I love us
"
