I like how cats are acting as if this list was meant to expose artists

Some dope info. I never knew Clipse and Pac were born in NY, that's pretty crazy.

Surprised Eminem didn't make the list, but I guess that's more common knowledge than the rest of these.

Complex finally came through with a cool list.

Nelly, Gunplay, MGK, Devin The Dude, Eminem, Prodigy, Nas, and Jimmy I didnt know about..
The list was cool, jus needed different ones most ppl wouldnt know..
Wiz I heard him mention some of his history..
Im suprised they didnt put Kanye up there..
One of the guys from Camp Lo is from here..
He's from Danville, Va but he reps NY lol..
They shoulda got more unknown info of using mostly obvious choices..

How did Cube not make the list? as far as I know, Ice Cube never lived in Compton ever in his life but wrote and preformed on Straight Outta Compton.

Nas isn't from Queensbridge/Queens, he's originally from Brooklyn, but instead chose to lie about his birthplace so he could be from the same borough as his idol Rakim.
Wrong wrong wrong

Rakim is from Wyandanch Long Island, thus the song Strong Island

and Nas didn't lie about being from QB, his family moved there when he was young.
