    I can't make that choice tbh. If I would look at my top 10 it probably got the same amount of artists

    I LOVE the westcoast sound Dre, Snoop etc made (and to an extent still do) and now YG for example, but d--- east got Jay Biggie etc. Impossible for me.

    Definitely west coast for me. East coast MCs can never hold my interest, but WC artists have this wavy vibe and charisma that I can never get enough of.

    Almost all my favorite rappers are from the East Coast, so I'll go with that.

    East Coast for me. As much as I love the west coast sound and some of my favourite artists like The Pharcyde, The Lootpack and The Alkaholiks are from the West, overall it can’t beat the Wu, DITC, Boot Camp Clik, Nas, Big Pun, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap. I mean the list is d--- near endless lmao
