    Ah, so NY the City not NY the State. Off topic but does anyone else think it's weird that NY has the same name for both City and State? We've accepted it as normal but would sound weird to aligned to anything else.
    Like, I'm going to England. You know, the Capital City of England?
    Off for a city break to Barcelona, Barcelona!
    Miami, Miami, you beautiful place.

    It's funny how Cardi, Tekashi and French are in the top 10 of the 2010's.
    They wouldn't even in the top 50 if it were the 2000-2009 or 1990-1999.

    Run-DMC for the 70s? Before they had an album or single out? KRS over Ra? Nas over Biggie? Weird list.

    Sex sells, Cardi would have been big in any era. Female rappers used to pretend they were strippers/thots. Cardi was actually one. Eve too, I know.

    French has also been around for a minute, he could have made it earlier. He just would be another rapper, not anything big.

    I meant 80s, I forgot they dropped their first album out in 84

    Also, I was drunk.

    Let's not worry about what happened before any of us was born.

    I like your list, lots of discussion. Yes, Biggie should be in there over Nas imo but I still think the most debatable is the most recent decade. If love it to be Pop but (and yes, of course some will disagree with this) but I don't really think he "earned" that title until after his death. That shouldn't count. I just don't know who deserves it.
