What is your opinion on Billboard's Top 10 ?

Top10:

*Article*

10. Lil Wayne

9. Kendrick Lamar

8. Ghostface Killah (member of the Wu-Tang Clan)

7. (Ms.) Lauryn Hill (former The Fugees member)

6. Andre 3000 (Outkast member)

5. Nas

4. Rakim

3. Eminem

2. JAY-Z

1. The Notorious B.I.G.

2Pac and Snoop Dogg  are missing in there i would choose them over Lil Wayne and Lauryn Hill.

 

Peace ^^

I have only heard of Billboard, i have never read it. Is this magazine specialised in Hiphop, or all genres?

 

Personally i think it's impossible to make a top 10 of best rappers of all time.

 

There are so much more good rappers, f.ex. Run DMC, Beastie Boys, N.W.A., Public Enemy, Kool Keith to name a few.

Well, i guess they are too Underground for Billboard :P

Hey @Jazzwhatever! ^^

 

This was also the first article that i've read by Billboard. But i dont' think its specialized just on one genre.

 

And yes i agree with you it's almost impossible to make a Top10.

There are so many great artists in that genre especially the oldschool ones like Beastie Boys that made a huge impact.

 

Billboard got so much hate by some artists because of that list. They won't do it again i think. ^^

 

Peace

Beastie Boys are more considered as alternative hip-hop, rap-rock band than "pure" rappers. They started as hardcore punk band.

 

Anyway, Bilboard is more a generalist american magazine now when they were more rock oriented by the past. But we could say the same for the british NME (New Musical Express) which was a great reference for rock music and which now makes articles with Justin Bieber !!!

Hey @Soundofus!

 

I just noticed their Rap/Hip-Hop tracks. I guess im too young for this type of music. 

I heard Billboard is also one of the oldest music related magazines in the world. ^^

Yes, Billboard exists since 1894 but specialized in music only since the 50's. :)
