Because they ride their dicks so hard that they diminish/forget the conributions of various other hiphop legends which are amongst them or paved the way; for example,
As far as ?uestlove BEING THE ROOTS I'd like you to go back to review Things Fall Apart. Remember how you felt when you finished hearing Thoughts verses on tracks like 100% Dundee? Double Trouble? Once again? I bet you were not giving a thought to ?uest then so PLEASE. WHO YOU FOOLIN'.
As far as those who think that BT is the greatest MC, I'd like you to listen to Double Trouble on that same album, specifically the FREESTYLE by Mos. Then go to your BLACKSTAR album and play the last three tracks. Go to your TALIB KWELI albums and play For Women. Go to your Mos Def album and listen to Speed laws, Got, Mathematics, Brooklyn, Home, & New World Water.
Check out Malik's verse on STEP INTO THE REALM
Most definetely play your Canibus mixtapes ras kass & redman albums.
Do I even HAVE to recommend KRS-1 & RAKIM?!?!?!
As far as those who think ?uestlove is the greatest Producer in hiphop (C'MON! He IS nice but damn) reference (Oh God there are so many here we go...) ANYTHING PRODUCED BY PREMIER, ESPECIALLY THE GROUP HOME ALBUM, ANYTHING PRODUCED BY ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD, ANY ALCOHOLICS ALBUM, PETE ROCK, ANYTHING PRODUCED BY THE BEATNUTS, THE FIRST TWO WU ALBUMS, ANYBODY WITH THE WORD MARLEY IN THEIR NAME, LARGE P, BOTH CHRONIC ALBUMS... THE SECOND & THIRD COMMON ALBUMS
HELL EVEN TAKE IT BACK TO THE B.I.G. REMIXES & THE BENJAMIN BEAT. & DON'T FRONT WHEN YOU DO THE LAST TWO EITHER!!!
NIGGAS ACTIN LIKE THEY DON'T REMEMBER ILLMATIC!!!!
I can't front they VERY close to LEGEND status.
They not there yet though.
When niggas EVERYWHERE is SCARED to hate on them from FEAR of being MOCKED and LOOKED AT FUNNY (kinda like Bob Marley, Aretha Coltrane, Miles, Stevie, Al Green, Luther(Don't front), Teddy P then they can get that.
Basically when they drop they next album.
ONE MONKEY DON'T STOP NO SHOW Solitayre on IVERSON
