Title: Goat of the East Coast
Post by: Westcoastfanatic on May 13, 2005, 05:13:58 AM
I'll say L.L Cool J. Been around for 20 years!! and is still succesful. Yes he makes corny love songs too but he has always done that right?

People complanned about my list, but I at least had 'Pac, Cube and Snoop from the west. This poll is missing KRS-One, Rakim, Melli Mel and Nas. Rakim, KRS-One and Nas are all in most everyones top 3, I'm sure Rakim is many number ones. My GOAT of the east personally is Rakim. So of what you have, obviously Biggie, but in the east overall I have Rakim as number 1.

From that list it's Big or LL.

You forgot Nas.  Nas can be inconsistent at times, but he dropped the second greatest (behind Dead Prez "Let's Get Free") East Coast record of all-time, "Illmatic".   Also, "It Was Written" and "Stillmatic" were superior albums.

You should've got your list straight before you put it up here. Nas should be the eastcoast GOAT imo, along with Rakim. However... Run DMC, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys aren't "someone", they're groups. For your information.

Of that list, I picked Biggie. I bet if 50 Cent was put on that list, he would have had some votes too. And how about people like Jay-Z and Ghostface? If LL is up there in that list, they should be too. Oh well, time for me to quit bitching.

i guess i ain't voting on here coz i'm not gonna vote Biggie the GOAT of the East

rakim - and to a lesser extent - nas are most deserving of that title

Why are so many people on this board hating on Biggie?
Title: Re: Goat of the East Coast
Post by: makaveli11 on May 13, 2005, 01:34:32 PM
That is a bad list. Personally I would choose rakim or at least nas.

You can or I can always make a second poll right? Just put the 2 winners of this poll in the next poll with Nas, Jay Z, Rakim,KRS-One and you get a good picture.

Ok, but I've read several times on this board, that Biggie wasn't that good and rather bad and so on. Things I just can't believe. ;)

Its got to be BIG or Rakim....I might even add Jay Z to the list....Pretty much every artist that comes out of NY is measured to the standard of those 3 MC's....Maybe have Nas on the list aswell.

Rakim hands down.  BIG could have been and Jay-z is no where near being the GOAT of the East Coast

Post by: GangstaBoogy on May 13, 2005, 04:02:54 PM
Biggie. I never understood why LL Cool J gets so much love

Why are so many people on this board hating on Biggie?

same reason they all hate Dre, Chino XL, Mobb Deep, Jay-Z, and a few others...

out here in the east pretty much none of the ones you mentiond get regarded as the Goat'

Biggie Nas and Jay-z are the ones who get discussions by hip hop scholars on who is the goat
