the radio station in my town (va beach) voted. it went like this,
mellys mels tyhree is solid.
where's Big L?
Melley Mel made a distinction between rappers and MCs. He named Tupac, LL, and a few others as great rappers. However MCs were rated on lyrical ability, and their ability to elevate the music.
oh pan, i meant Big L not LL Cool J but i guess Big L is a rapper too
I think that LL Cool J should be mentioned in the top 3. He has been around seen the mid 80s.
I wish more top lists would make the distinction between rapper and emcee.
some rappers can be both rapper and emcee though, nas or busta rhymes comes to mind.
I was happy to hear my favorite MC of all time (Kool Moe Dee) be given the recognition that he deserves. There are some old school MCs being given recognition today for their contributions to Hip Hop like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the Rock Steady Crew, Run DMC, Whodini, and a handful of others. I feel that all of these brothers definately deserve it, but Kool Moe Dee and his group (the Threacherous 3) are being overlooked. Moe Dee invented "fast rhyming", and he had the most complex & socially relevant lyrics of his time.
true true and offtopic i foud some dude posed like busta was in that wooooha! video
Brother Pan, I am glad to hear you say this about Moe Dee because I too was seeing how they was neglectin the Brother.
I am so frustrated with rap now because it has just gotten too ridiculous. I remember when Moe Dee and LL had their lil rap feud . Nobody got cut and nobody got shot. The death of Biggie and Tupac who I thought were both talented rappers was the breaking point for me as far as rap music.Today, many of these rappers are tryin to hold up this I'm a thug / don't mess with me image and it's played out in my opinion. It's too much going on in this world to fight about who has the biggest car or the most hit records. Infact, we could do away with a lot of this garbage they call music if law makers would make a law sayin can't nobody make a record if you are currently on parole...lol There aint too many rappers out there today that I like. Still, there are quite a few from back in the day that helped pave the way that aint gettin the props they deserve.
