On Friday, BET revealed their Top Ten Rappers of The 21st Century. The list was disclosed during an hour-long television special, and featured the hottest rappers of the past decade, from 1999 onward.
To compile the list, BET put out a list of rappers for hip-hop fans to vote on. After 25,000 votes, a list of just fifteen rappers remained. That list was judged by a “Hip-Hop Supreme Court” which was headed by Justice Big Tigger.
According to BET’s website the “Supreme Court” deciding panel consisted of: Jermaine Dupri (Producer – ATL); Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur (AllHipHop.com); Boy 1da (Producer);DJ Diamond Kuts (Power 99 FM – Philadelphia); DJ Greg Street (V103 – ATL); Tony Neal (CEO, Core DJs); DJ Timbuck2 (107.5 WGCI – Chicago); Chloe Hilliard (Managing Editor/Social Media Manager, Vibe Magazine – NYC); and DJ Vlad (VladTV.com – NYC).
Incase you missed it, here is the complete list:
2) Lil’ Wayne
3) Kanye West
4) 50 Cent
8) Young Jeezy
10) Rick Ross
It seems pretty weird that Jay Z, Fabolous, or any females were even mentioned in this “Top Ten Rappers of The 21st Century”! Like really? I can’t even take this serious.
