The genre evolved from hard rap into a distinct form, pioneered in the mid-1980s by rappers such as Schoolly D and Ice-T, and was popularized in the later part of the 1980s by groups like N.W.A.

Giving back to your community. Game started off his Robin Hood Project in 2013 around the time that he learned that Tiana Ricks, a 6-year-old girl, and her father were gunned down outside a family home in Moreno Valley. Diddy proved his dedication to philanthropy in 2003 when he raised over $2 million for children with HIV/AIDS by running in the New York City Marathon. After his sister was diagnosed with leukemia, St. Louis rapper Nelly registered thousands of donors and raised money for cancer research.

Throughtout the years, times has changed in our youth and the picture is much clearer than others that the future is destined for hell.

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.

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?

"It's so easy to make a song these days, for these people man. Anybody could just become somebody. And you know, what the thing is, what I hate to shatter their world with is that, you're actually not somebody," said Wayne. 

"Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean you're nobody. But you're not actually doing what we doing, or what people like I have done. You're not. You're not, and you're not, and you're not and you're not, and you're not."

Gansta Marcus Talks Top 5 Rappers Of All Times

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) When rappers mention who is there top 5 hottest of all times, all differ in their own way. Lima, Ohio producer Gansta Marcus releases his list of all time favorites. Check out his list below and why.

"I was raised in the eara where 90's hip-hop was top of the market. We had rappers such as Tupac and Biggie, Nas and Jay-Z. My top 5 list of hottest rappers would consist of Master P +Percy Miller +DMXS Radio +Ruff Ryders Entertainment Nelly +ST Lunatic Nate Dogg +Snoop Dogg +EminemMusic and UGK +UNDER GROUND KINGS.

There were many great hits created back then that will last forever. But nothing came better than these artist because they kept putting out hit after hit over the years. When Master P released Bout It, it took the world by storm. Shortly after, Ghetto D hit the stores like a monster. With a tank and a squad that can't be stop, No Limit held the charts for several years until Hot Boyz took over with members such as +Lil Wayne +LIL TURK B.G. and Juvenile.

DMX came in hard with the Ruff Ryders anthem, shortly after he released one of his best album ever "Flesh Of My Flesh." Talk about a album to just let play, now this is it...Real Talk. You don't have to speak on Nelly and Snoop Dogg, for you see they still speak for themselves.

Eminem is labeled as one of the hottest artist of all times. He came out with hot bars and tactical vocals. With +DR Engineering behind him, there was no touching him to begin with.

Key Moments In Hip-Hop History


Hip hop is more than music; it’s a cultural movement that incorporates different elements of art. Before there was Lil Yachty, Young M.I.A., or YNW Melly, there was a world of hip hop artist who's name rain supreme even still today.

Back when music was real, artist had the opportunity to shine in their own distinctive way. Rap is one of the most distinctive features of hip-hop. Rappers use rhythm, lyrics, and vocal tone to express themselves. The best rappers are distinguished by their “flow” – the way the words run together without the performer getting tongue-tied.

After naming his NBA Championship and Superbowl predictions, Obama began to discuss his favorite rappers.

Prodigy Talks Which Rappers He Dislikes


Prodigy (R.I.P.) getting his feelings off his chest pertaining to the state of the rap game the day before he was set to do a 3-year prison sentence. While he didn’t have much good things to say about the rappers making noise in 2008, I have a feeling he would have had even less of an appreciation for the cast of clowns calling themselves rappers in 2020 and beyond.

What If Biggie and Tupac Were Still Alive?

If Biggie and Tupac were still alive, would half the rappers that's in the music industry be there? Would Jay-Z or Nas gotten as far as they did?

What if both artist would be less relevant if they were alive? Many say their deaths cause the impact of there music being as great as it is, but I feel otherwise.

Tupac's All Eyez on Me album was one of the greatest albums of the 90's if you ask me. All cultures was buying this album and it sold through the roof. Shakur has sold over 75 million records worldwide, so think how many it would be if he never was killed.

Death sells records. As sales of posthumous albums by murdered stars the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Selena have shown, it is increasingly easy to become No. 1 with a bullet.

For instance, the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Life After Death" album, released just two weeks after B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace, a k a Biggie Smalls) was gunned down in Los Angeles, sold 685,000 copies the first week.

In the week after Smalls's death, about 10,000 copies of his 1994 debut, "Ready to Die," were sold, now compare that to Tupac Shakur, who sold 67,000 records in the week following his murder.

Would Tupac and Biggie be considered GOAT rappers if they weren’t killed? What if they were still alive today, would there be mumble rappers? Just think. would the industry have to search so hard for that next big hit? Would album sales have fallen?

Do you think Tupac and Biggie would have settled the beef? How much would be different? Would they still be remembered and praised the same way they are now?
