Personal tastes aside....its fine the way some of you feel about guys like Kanye, TI, etc etc....Thats YOUR taste, and you're entitled to that.



But the fact remains, a vast majority of the top 10 of hip hop/rap artists are indeed from the 80s, and the 90s, and with the general direction that hip hop and rap has taken lately, its probably going to STAY that way for a long, LONG time, if not forever.


These new school artists may "sell more" but thats based SOLELY on the way the game is played these days folks. You think such and such from the 80s had the internet, itunes, and vast commercialization of his product? These motherfu*kers from back then were damn near coming out of their own pockets for their videos, that cost like 100 dollars.


Shit is mass produced now, on assembly lines in factories. OF COURSE they're going to sell more records now more than ever. But if that is the method for you to measure the greatness of an emcee, then I feel sorry for you, because you're missing out.



The golden era of hip hop was CLEARLY in the 80s, and 90s. Hands down.
