forgive me but I dont see how Nas and Mob Deep beat Jay and Big

honestly just cause the first dude said queens everyone just gonna follow the leader here

Jay arguably the best to ever do it

and if he not then most people have him 2 behind BIG

so how queens touching that

AND

the Island got the Wu so they puts them no less than 3 maybe 4 on anybodies list

I don't see why producers cant be mentioned. it's about Hip-Hop.

BUT.....
What does spike have to do with this? Serious question.

You can def make a case for BK especially with such strong contenders in Jay and Big, but it's really tough to beat Queens, imo.

LL, Run DMC, Kool G Rap, Nas, Mobb Deep, ATCQ... that alone is too strong given the amount of classics. And those are only a few.

But honestly, you can make a case for all of them.


One can say Hip-Hop wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the BX and the entire convo is over lol.

Spike Lee has done more to hip hop than half the rappers mentioned in this thread

real talk he influences culture especially hip hop culture  in seismic ways

i would say hes even more influential than Spike
had kids running around the block wanting to be CEOs instead of rappers. 

Simmons is a titan of hip hop
