    What exactly is the argument that 50 was bad for the game?

    I only see one 50 Cent esque song on that list after 03.

    Well the argument that's made, on here at least, killed NY hiphop. So by that I tool it a step further by saying hiphop in general because that's the mecca.

    What would yall nominate for 2015?

    My personal pick would be "March Madness" lbs but Im sure a track off of TPAB would be more fitting
