Evolution Of Diss Tracks - King Of New York

 


Competition has always played a big role in hip hop. Battle rhymes, diss songs, trying to outshine someone on his own song, it’s all in the spirit of competition.


But in the mid-90s, the competition in New York was especially heavy. Let’s think about the rappers were coming up at that time – you had Nas and Big both releasing landmark debuts in ’94, Mobb Deep damn bringing all of Queensbridge wherever they went, Raekwon with The Purple Tape and the rest of Wu-Tang by his side. Most of the rappers on our greatest of all time list came on the ’90s East Coast.

Jay-Z sold the rights to the Rocawear brand to Iconix Brand Group for $204 million. Jay-Z will retain his stake in the company and will continue to oversee the marketing, licensing, and product development.


If you were a fan of hip hop in the late 90s and early to mid-noughties, then Rocawear will need no introduction. Items from the fashion label, co-founded by rapper Jay-Z, were as common a sight in music videos as groups of scantily-clad ladies popping bottles of Cristal in a hot tub.

Who Are The Worst Rappers of All Time?

 


The "Greatest Rapper of All Time" title is one of the most prestigious monikers in the history of hip hop; it's also one of the most debated. In terms of innovation, there's no denying the importance of Rakim. 


When it comes to achieving commercial success during a pivotal time in the genre's infancy during the 1980s, names such as LL Cool and Run DMC are also mentioned among the best ever. When it comes to wordplay and storytelling, a strong argument can be made for emcees like Biggie, Big L, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar. On the flip side, if being a generation-defining artist who makes classic album after classic album was a part of the criteria, then rappers such as 2Pac, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne also could lay claim to the title as well. But what about the opposite side of the spectrum? Who's the worst rapper of all time? And furthermore, what's the criteria?
