Discovered Move the Crowd through my logs. Damn, nice to see someone is this weblog space likes hip hop. And if someone listing the22 Greatest MCs I'm going to join the fun, as Slick Rick said, here we go:
9 Method Man
10 Milk D (Audio 2)
11 Andre 3000
12 Jay Z
13 Slick Rick
15 Big L
16 Lord Finesse
20 Eightball & MJG
21 Melle Mel
Few notes on the unconventional and the top.
takes it cause of staying power, a year back I'd say Rakim but still blows up a room like no other. What kills me though, was that it was his second single and first hit and he's speaking like he's already made it. Retarded confidence. Peep any freestyle footage you can get, absurd shit.
KRS and Snoop round out the god level. The rest are ill, but not immortal. Milk D makes it on the strength of one song only, Top Billin is an absolute classic, never pauses, flows in and out of the choruses seemlessly, flawless. Ludacris gets no respect what's up with that, didn't get mentioned once in the Move the Crowd list or discussion. Scarface is crazy underrated too, same with Eightball & MJG and UGK. I'm from NY I'll admit the South reps hard.
Lord Finesse and Big L get the NY battle kings award. "I'm like Bevis I get nothing but head"... Finesse especially is criminally underrated, while L gets mad respect in certain limited circles. Aight gots to cut this off I got work to do.Posted by Abe at August 28, 2003 11:27 PM
