Pretty sure some of you are saying… Jay-Z’s not on the list? Even though The Camel is over the top with it most of the time, we were surprised as hell that he was not on the list a long with a few other people.
BET’s “Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century” is a fierce, no-holds-barred, hour-long special that reveals the ultimate Top 10 List of the last decade’s hottest rappers, whose careers blew up from 1999 to today.
BET’s “Top 10 Rappers” is the definitive hip-hop countdown by the ground-breaking network that gave love to hip-hop before anyone else dared. BET threw open nominations to BET digital followers, industry bloggers and other social influencers (our “Grand Jury”). More than 25,000 votes later, they returned a Top 15 list of rappers for consideration. Now, our “Hip-Hop Supreme Court” is convening to vote on the final Top Ten, based on a rapper’s: flow, lyrics, subject matter, cultural impact, dough, and as needed in the arsenal of a 21st Century rapper –digital skills (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, their own website, etc.).
So… What we want to know is:
-Do You Agree With This List?
-Who Would You Have Added and Who Would You Have Left Off?
-Nelly Sold 30 Million, Does He Deserve to Be on The List?
-Jay-Z Sold 5 Million in 1998 but has made the Biggest impact in Hip-Hop in the past 5 years… Does He Belong on The List?
