Pretty decent survey but I don't agree with P. Diddy being the best producer, especially infront of Dr. Dre and DJ Premier? No way.

Yeah at the time Life After Death and No Way Out were newish so that would have played a major role in him taking number 1 spot

That survey is pretty accurate. I don't disagree except for Puffy. If they do that survey now Eminem will dominate. Like I said. 98 was the last great year in hip hop.

It was done mid 97 so they only had 2 albums. No Aquemini or Stankonia yet. They would have to be a top 5 now

Yeah that's true, and I agree that Run-DMC deserved to be there too. They are responsible for the evolution of hip-hop.
