2-Pac Shakur was a lyricist beyond his time. Biggie Smalls had the type of understanding of music that allowed him to capture everyone. NAS spoke consciousness, never forgets where he comes from. Busta Rhymes is the most overlooked artist ( in my opinion). Jay-Z, what can’t be said about this mogul? From hustler to millionaire according to Forbes, he is just 10 million dollars behind Sean “Puffy” Combs. So I decided to let you decide my peeps, who is the true king? In a discussion I once overheard someone state, that the only reason Jay-Z is a factor is because Biggie was gone.
Well let’s talk about 2-Pac. This young man had one of the most uncommon but common upbringings. Still he is looked at as the ’90’s revolutionists. His lyrics not only defined him but generation. Nas was one of the artist I personally only listened to when he was on the radio. That doesn’t mean that I missed the message, just didn’t feel like going to the mailbox at the time. Needless to say, he still made the list. Between his collaboration with Ms. Lauryn Hill and his messages to our young kings and queens, I know he is list worthy.
Then we have Busta Rhymes, this individual has been in the game since the late ’80’s. From Leaders of the New School to Flip Mode Squad Busta has been the leader of changing the game. Busta Rhymes is always the fore runner of fashion, and when it comes to spitting them bars, there are few who can contend. So that’s my input on this little test, now it’s your turn let’s see who the people truly crown King of Hip Hop
