Wtf...
I spose they did put rakim and krs-one on their, but jay-z number 1? That motherfu*ker could not get a record deal cos they knew he was wack, so he had to start rocafella. I gotta give him props for that cos they got a few good artists on their rosters, but jay-z ain't nuthin special.

50 Cent >>> Olivia >>>> Jay-Z

Rakim should have been no. 1, Slick Rick should be in there, Furious Five, Kool G Rap, ya know the originators

Thats a bullsh*t list.

I am a huge Jay fan, so I feel like he should have been number one. If you look at lyrics, sales, albums, and consistency, who else on that list is better. True he did pattern his style on B.I.G.s, but B.I.G. didn't have enought albums, so who to say that he would have gotten any better that he was before he died. Pac was a beast, but he only sold albums after he had beef with B.I.G., and he sold more records after he died than while he was here walking this earth with us. You guys are looking at this at a different stand point to think of the best it takes more than just fan support and who you think is the better lyricist. Look at the topic is says MCs not lyricist.
I was gonna write sumthin similar but u sum'd it up perfectly.The only sh*t dat has me like:wow: is dat ice cube sh*t. was they thinkin

It's like what Star from StarNBucwild said about the MTV lists-"I ain't gonna let a bunch of college f*gs sit there and decide who my greatest mc's are".

Snoop and LL damage their legacy with each new album. Kick out LL or Em for Scarface.

Jay as #1 =

And DMX should have at least got honorable mention

Are you idiots serious saying Pac should be ahead of Jay-Z?
Are you out of your mind?
Pac as an artist was dope, probably even the illest ARTIST in Hip-Hop ever... but as an actual MC? GTF outta here with that bull. I wouldn't even put Pac in the top 7.
As an emcee Pac could NEVER go against Jigga. Not even a Pharoahe Monch.
Remember this, Biggie NEVER responded to Pac. Yet all he did was drop one line on Jay's album- "If Faith had twins she prolly have two Pac's"
and it made us all wonder the damage he woulda done if he gave an all out a.ssault, as Pac would him, time and again.

Pac's wording was not clever in the slightest. He was easily the most basic lyricist of that era... it's just that he had SO MUCH CHARISMA that he became a living icon and when he died, rappers such as DMX, Ja Rule, 50 Cent and others began either modelling their image or flow or both on Pac in an attempt to recapture his charisma and presence.

When Pac was alive however... come on man, are you gonna seriously tell me he was revered as an actual Emcee? Don't lie now, tell the truth. Go and dig up one article where Pac is being revered for his actual flow on the mic.

Anyone debating Jigga's placing over Pac must be around 21 years old, so all they remember from that era (being 10 years ago) is Pac's iconic status. Since then, Pac has become so huge in death that it's hard to imagine him being anything less than perfect as a rapper, but in truth? It's always another story...

I aint even a big Jay-Z fan, but to say Pac was a better emcee is blasphemy.

Jigga, Nas, Biggie, Big L, Pharoahe are all- ah forget it!

Are you out of your mind. This isn't the best lyricists contests, this is the greatest mc's lists. For your information, 2Pac was the biggest rapper in the country when he died that summer. Jay-Z was not even touching his feet. You said as an MC pac could never go against Jigga, but yet Jigga couldn't say nothing when pac was declaring war. Even pac called his name out and he couldn't say nothing. And for your information, Biggie replied with a diss song called, "Long Kiss Goodnight". As a diss song to hitemup, it's so weak that very few people don't even know it's a diss to 2pac. When you talk about all the qualities of being a perfect mc, jigga don't come close to pac. Nas, Rakim, & Pac are the best mc's.
