About those MC LISTS , you ignorant F*CKS,shut the f*ck up
Anyone writing a list of greates mc's of all time is a stupid fuck , so are the people who criticize the list .
I think you people forgot THE biggest fact about lists : Time .
You CANNOT compare a mc from the 1980 to a mc from 1990 and vice versa . You simply can't .
For the simple fact that it's not in the same cultural environement and social status .
If a mc in 1981 was rocking mad crowds and getting people hype , why should he be less good then a 1999 mc who writes dope intellectual shit ?? Hip Hop has constantly changed , lyrics , technology , trends and so on .
You can't put all this time in one bag and judge who is the best of all time . There is always a new social context .
Anyways , greatest mcs of all time list are stupid , people who do them obviously don't know shit about hip hop ..
Thats like trying to Say if M. Ali and Mike Tyson got in the ring so and so would win, or puting MJ in there with Dr.J. Its cool to imagine but not realistic. And definately not something that niggaz need to be taking to hear...Simon says, shut the fuck up.
I kinda of agree with Simple, in that you can't compare emcees from completely different eras and try to compile a list by doing so. I really don't have a greastest emcee list, I have a favorite emcee list which I'm sure everyone including Simple does, but I think alot of people confuse the two and make a list of thier favorite emcees, trying to pass it of as a list of the greatest emcees, a list such as that takes more time and thought to put together than juts some off the top, hot for the moment shit.
i guess you haven't heard the new rakim album, if you still think he's dope.
There is a prophet on earth at all times.
'Whoever feels it the most at the moment takes it the farthest'.
relax, though, its just a list. (geez)
Yeah, but what makes some mc's stand way above others, is their ability to change with the times, and still sound good when the art has evolved so much (rakim). Who from that era can still drop shit like him? KRS? Maybe. Chuck D? No. L.L.? As corny and commercial as he is, he can still get down in a beef on the mic and have your attention.
