DJ Premier Tribute Show (2 Parts)

Episode 10, The DJ Premier Tribute, is our magnum opus. It’s only right: the greatest producer of all-time receives the greatest tribute of all-time. It was no easy feat selecting and sequencing tracks for this massive 380+ minute show. We hope after listening to the incredible Work of Mart homage, you’ll agree, DJ Premier is the GOAT. We’ve broken Episode 10 into 2 parts because when you cover Premo’s illustrious career, it’s impossible to include every masterpiece in just one show. But don’t worry- within both episodes, we’ve made sure to include all the ill-collabos, obscure remixes and of course, your favorite classics too! –Philaflava

Nothing we haven’t heard before but its good to be reminded why this lazy, stubborn, sometimes extremely idiotic rapper was once the greatest we had in the 90’s.  It’s also a good testament to anyone who ever thought Jay-Z was a better rapper. Definitely a cool compilation for the weekend. Enjoy! –Philaflava

Magneto’s Top 10 Best Rappers Ever (Entrant 4)

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Down to the final four slots, as now separation becomes even more miniscule. Before we begin, I’d like to thank everyone who drops feedback on, who read it every Friday, and overall those who support this blog. With that out the way, number 4 on the list, is a rapper, who I believe based off his talent, should actually be number 1. But with a lack of quality material over the last decade, it’s hard to put him at that level. With that said, he has still released enough great material over his 20 year career, to be on anyone’s top 5. The Legend .. The R..

One of the greatest lyricists of all-time is the benchmark all rappers are measured to from a bar to bar perspective.
