A few days ago there was a thread titled target="_blank">The Ecstasy and the Blueprint 2 in which someone made an excellent suggestion that the MMB use a tune from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly which was used in a Nike commercial and was sampled by a Jay-Z song on the aforementioned article. I got into a discussion with a gentleman by the name of WillyWill about whether Nas or Jay-Z is better. I hold that Nas is better, as he is one of my favorite artists of all time.
My favorites are Nas, Jay-Z, the Roots, 2Pac, and others. Lately I've been listening to AZ, Ghostface, and some other stuff. Who does everyone here like?
Of course, no discussion of hip hop is complete without mention of this gem by some of Detroit's own hometown heroes.
