How come nobody cares that the Beastie Boys are so high on there?
Maybe they could be switched with Pac to make it a little better.

Eminem has had a huge influence over the music industry, so did Pac, but Pac's was more localized to hip hop, same with NWA. As far as skill goes, I would have a hard time putting Em above Pac, but I could make a case either way.

However, I couldn't make a case for Beastie Boys >> Pac or Em in influence or in skill.
I think the list had more to do with influence rather then skill, I definately wouldn't rank Eminem over Pac in terms of skill, Eminem doesn't even rank Eminem over Pac in skill, but in terms of influence to the wider musical world, you gotta give it to Eminem, I remeber flippin through radio stations and hearing ROCK radios stations playing Eminem. I don't think that EVER happended with Tupac. Then you look at record sales, Em has more there too.

You all gotta remember Rolling Stone magazine is a Rock/Pop magazine, it's not exactly Source, XXL or Vibe, magazines that deal specifcally with Hip Hop world. So while Tupac definately had a bigger impact within Hip Hop, Em had more of an impact outside of Hip Hop. The save the reasons why for WHY Em had more of an impact for another thread. Look at the other Hip Hop artists that they ranked higher then Pac, the SAME argument can be made with them, with the exceptions Of Public Enemy and Run DMC, we would even be listening to Pac if it wasn't for those too groups.

A lot of you have already made the point but i agree with you. These rating are not hiphop specific, so Em's influence is greater than Tupac's in the world in general. I believe that many of Pac's songs will last longer than Eminem's because of the subject matter, but for pure lyricism and versatility, Eminem is a better pure MC. Just like Biggie was a better pure MC than Pac. Within hiphop itself though, nobody can touch Pac's influence.

Beastie Boys and Eminem over Pac and NWA? smh

Rollling Stone gave Stillmatic two stars (Said One Mic is one of the weaker tracks on the album), they have hold weight.

this is a magazine that ranks all genres of music in terms of sales and influences....not skill

eminem did sell more and has influenced more not just in hip hop but in all genres and across the entire world...

if this list was based upon hip hop skill then pac would obviously be above eminem

You have to remember - not everyone in the world likes hip hop...

Let's just be happy that Pac n NWA made it in there... Though tbh it looks as if they were token gestures considering the Beasties were in there higher...

And there were only 3 hip hop affiliated judges (chuck, LA Reid, rick rubin)

The truth is that hip hop is the music genre that sells more records and gets more airplay...and 50 years old rock fans don't like that...

Michael Jackson sould've been N.1 on that list cause his the artist that sold more records and the most known...

and where's chuck berry? he invented Rock N' Roll, he made the first rock N' roll song...where is he?he must be ahead of the beatles...

And where the fu*k is Frank Sinatra? You got The Beach Boys and The Velvet Undergroud in the top 20 and ol'blue eyes doesn't even make the top 100??!!

fu*k a rolling stone...

Basically.....but ya'll gotta understand that outside of Hip Hop Eminem probably did have a bigger impact, people that know NOTHING about Hip Hop/Rap Music know about Em....the same can't be said about Pac....But inside of Hip Hop everyone, for the most par knows and understands Pac significance and ranking Em higher then Pac would be blasphemy.....
true dat
