mebbe it's just that I find it difficult to enjoy early Hip-Hop
Statements like this are what make me realize that I'm old.

Statements like this make me realize I was born a decade late.

That Ego Trip book is exactly what we do here every day (so stands to reason we'd like it circle jerk hooray).

Um, the Ego Trip book is great. Did you even look through it before dismissing it?

Oh yeah, and that list is absolutely awful. It WAS billed as the 22 greatest mc's, and putting people like Missy and the Beastie Boys on it is so wrong I don't know where to start.

Haha Dr. Dre is the seventh greatest MC ever.

Well, during his segment they played "Been There, Done That", and I was struck by how much that single seemed to lyrically anticipate the late 90's/early 00's "fuck you, I'm rich!" approach, so some credit for that, I guess. Also: "Express Yourself"!

Luda is a FAR better MC than Nelly; Nelly tends to have better production (not always, o' course...)

two weeks pass...
1st of all...22 greatest mc's was a good program but there r so many faults in the chart...My opinion is that Common,Nelly,Queen Latifah & Missy Elliott have 2 leave....and N.O.R.E.,OutKast,Ice Cube & Bone Thugs -N- Harmony should stand there instead,because N.O.R.E. raps about real life,real things,OutKast has a bigger impact in hip-hop then Common,Ice Cube because he changed the face of gangsta rap(begin 90's) & Bone Thugs -n- Harmony because they have much more skillz then Nelly...that's only my opinion.

This list is absolute crap, and it sucks that people as ill as Dougie Fresh would even show their face in presenting such a wack list. It was obviously voted on and formed by people who only know the SURFACE of hip-hop. When it comes down to simply the best MC, no one touches Rakim. Moreover, the top ten is all fucked up, how about KRS-One, Run-DMC and Chuck D - the heads that invented MCing and delivered it in the realist form. AND HOW ABOUT THE MOTHER FUCKING BIG L!!!! WHere is he? And where the fuck is MF DOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Both whom should be in the top ten! For all you corn balls that voted, don't speak on shit unless you know what the fuck you're talking about!
