This is why you deserve to be taken behind a school and shot. Same goes for Powell Shaking My Head He forgot Slick Rick, but has Just Ice on his list twice.

No, i have not heard, but i definitely need to get on that. I wasn't taking a shot at them either. What i meant was Just Ice is way more obscure than Slick Rick, but it was Slick Rick that you forgot.

There's a number of joints I'm missing like that DOC joint for example. I should have definitely listed it, But the 80's had so many classics that it's hard to cut the list down to just 20.
