What's this whine shit from the dude that complains when his people don't get in but El-P gets close? I understand your passion Kev and I really have no problem with you or you voicing your opinion I was merely trying to have a civil convo with you.

I'm not fucking whining, jesus christ. You guys have a very limited response base.

I'm not even that big of a Def Jux fan, KJ. But keep trying to pidgeonhole me, maybe you'll get it one of these days.

They've done more for hip-hop overall than El-P. I like El/Company Flow, but there are SEVERAL acts who didn't make this list whom I'd rank over them.

Anybody that can't objectively understand that is a blind fanboy like N3R0.

And Steve, Sadat X is dope, but Grand Puba has much more noteriety.

I'd have to say I feel El-P has definitely done more for hip-hop than Brand Nubian. *duck*

Again, more classics, and I'd venture to say possibly more universal appeal.

these dudes were on Yo,MTV Raps, Video Music Box, BET-Rap City and a bunch of other outlets after One For All...I was watching man, I know!

they did not fade away after the debut, your wrong about that man

Brand Nubian have more pull in hip hop than El-P that is fact. Brand Nub 1st 3-4 albums are all on point and they are pioneers of the 5% movement in hip hop what is El-P pioneered for hip hop? I know El made it cool for more whites to maybe luv rap but I can't relate to that. What has he done for hip hop coming from my side of coin?

I would say their still relevant today in terms of being a respected, legendary, pioneering group, but I would say their "star" really started going down in '98 after they released "Foundation" and that was because there was a guy who was wearing a "shiny-suit" and another guy who was barking like a dog that started changing the landscape of the game man

I know that, that's why I said it's a silly comparison. I didn't miss anything. Chino Xl & Canibus are fine lyricists, that's all. El-P, on the other hand, has contributed hugely to the underground scene in Hip-Hop. He's one of the key figures in it's growth and musical direction. He's worked over and over again on important, acclaimed albums. To compare his contribution to Hip-Hop to Chino XL and Canibus, is silly. They're lyricists, damn good lyricists, but El-P has been a big part in pushing a major movement in Hip-Hop, in developing new styles.

I suppose it rests in Powell's idea that anything in Hip-Hop after 1995 is in general insignificant. The only reason to make that comparison is as a complete dismissal of underground Hip-Hop as at all important to Hip-Hop as a whole, or a lack of understanding of El-P's influence.

That is what I said. And I seriously feel it's extremely close. Personally, I'd spin El-P/Co Flow/El-P produced record before a Brand Nubian/Sadat X/Grand Puba/Lord Jamar record. And that does not mean I dislike them at all. I own 3 BN records, 1 Sadat X record, and 2 Grand Puba records. I really like both collectives.

I think I'm pretty familiar with EL-P's greatest work (I own it man) and I respect and even like it, but he is not a top 100 of all-time hip-hop artist man...sorry

Damn, what the fuck is this idea that EL-P is some god damned pioneer and changed rap? WHAT did he change??????? EL-P is a NOBODY to 99% of people, and a dude like Canibus has 5 billion times more notoriety than EL-P.

Kev, that's BS. And who cares if white people like Def Jux. If Def Jux got WAY more white people listening to hip-hop, is that info tossed out of the window because they are white people? Steve, don't respond.

El-P made serious waves in the underground movement. He's not talked up as a production genius and visionary for nothing. He changed the way underground hip-hop sounds. Vibes & aesthetic. YOU may not be able to see that, but don't sit by and be blind about it.

I'm not talking about notoriety. I'm talking about music. Musically, El-P has been one of the most significant figures in underground Hip-Hop for over a decade.

Canibus? I doubt that. I'd say El-P has at least 6 billion times more notoriety. But our notoriety sources come from different places. And since I'm white and haven't been listening to hip-hop my whole life, you win, right?

But Powell, perhaps it is telling that, with the exception of Ludacris, everything you listed is either by an artist who debuted before 1995, or is strongly calling back to an early 90's sound.

I didn't say that thing about white people. Kev did. I responded sarcastically.

But I do believe he pioneered a new sound. So that's where we disagree.

El-P does not have many "single" type songs. What did you not like about the songs? Abstract? Menacing? Rapping? I tell you, those songs are big with many Def Jux fans. But solo El-P can be VERY different from just El-P producing records for some other rapper.

Jason does have a point here, Powell. Which is why I questioned if you even like El-P's brand of hip-hop.

Again, don't take what I said too literally, I know there's stuff you like after 1995. But again, while Little Brother didn't come out before 1995, they were never exactly a forward looking group musically. A big part of their appeal was that they were so reminiscent of some of those early 90s groups. In fact, their name says it all. So, it's newer music, but not a newer sound.

EL-P is not a top 100 hip-hop artist of all-time unless I can hear some shit from him other than Company Flow that is going to be dope....plain and simple...I don't want to hear that "niche" market bullshit...either he's dope or he's not...sounds like that dude Linker is in love with..that "niche" market bullshit....to even think about being a top 100 hip-hop artist of all-time you better have some UNIVERSAL appeal...not just catering to a specific market but your known as being dope across the fuckin board man

El-P does have universal appeal. Go pick up all the Def Jux CDs at Best Buy. They got 'em!

Maybe we should do each artist twice one day, once for impact/influence, and once for actual rapping skill, that way people who struggle with the concept could vote with clean conscience.

you'll have better luck finding Def Jux CD's at best buy than you will old school NY rap unfortunately.

Very true. I'm sure there's way more Def Jux that anything by Brand Nubian including solos.

Powell, you didn't like the El-P. And there will be more you don't like. This I'm sure of.

You had your fair warning. So don't come complaining to me if you don't like some shit. In fact, there are a number of Def Jux records I do not like either.

Powell, not sure if you were joking or not, but...

Def Jux material with El-P:

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein (4.5 stars)
El-P - Fantastic Damage (5 stars)
Mr. Lif - I Phantom (5 stars) <--- my favorite
Murs - The End Of The Beginning... (5 stars) <--- 2 El-P cuts
Perceptionists, The - Black Dialogue (5 stars) <--- 3 El-P cuts. second favorite
Cage - Hell's Winter (4 stars)
El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead (4 stars)
Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass (4 stars) <--- 2 El-P cuts
Mr. Lif - Mo' Mega (3.5 stars) <--- El-P is the main reason for it's dopeness

I'm sure there is more I'm missing. However, there are a lot of examples of production that was inspired by El-P's initial style on the Def Jux label and elsewhere. His style has inspired many.

Knowing the style of newer hip-hop you like, Powell. I have no doubt you will really like, if not love the one's I put in bold

Indeed. If you're going to get some Def Jux material, start with those two

Then why are you being a little bitch because I voted neither??? You're pigeonholing your damn self!

Steve also voted neither, but I don't see you giving him shit. I guess it's because he's your boy, huh?

What the hell is the big deal? If they don't like El-P they can't vote for him. And I thought it was established that if a seasoned hiphop fan has gotten by without listening to an artist, a 'neither' is a valid vote.

What the fuck. You guys are acting like these dudes are the only ones aloud to make music after this poll.

nah man, if you vote neither without listening its like instantly trashing the artist. If you've listen to them you can judge whether they're top 50 top 100 material or not(neither)

I disagree. If I've been listening to hip hop for 20+ years without ever hearing an artist, I can legitamitely say that artist does not make MY top 100, which is really what this is all about. Finding everyone's middle ground, meeting point, whateverthefuckyacallit.

How can you.. lets say you've never listen to Nas you're whole life because all you ever heard was the worst song off Nastradamus, and decided he was wack. Does that mean you'd vote neither for him as well?

Well, he couldn't be in my top 100, could he? Therefore, by voting him neither, I'm adding a true representation of my listening preferences to be equally and fairly mixed with everyone else's.

Don't get me wrong here. I think El-P's career is bad ass. ISWYD is one of my favorite albums of recent years (I know I'm odd man out with that...). He is definitely in my top 100.

That said, he is definitely not in the top 100 for a few folks here. Whether that's because they don't like him or don't know him is irrelevant. He's not on their list. Period.

I hope he makes it. I think I'll be OK if he doesn't, though.

well, he's not in your top 100 because you wouldn't have had any knowledge on him. This isn't supposed to be a personal top 100, its a consensus top 100. Therefore, by having no knowledge about an artist you should refrain from voting, like the rest of us do when we don't really know an artist.

"This isn't supposed to be a personal top 100, its a consensus top 100."

A concensus is created by collecting from individuals, right? As somebody already said, if he's not on their list that means 100 other motherfuckers are. So the vote is neither regardless of why.

its fine if you vote neither because you've actually heard the artist's music and decide its trash. But to bash something just because you've never heard it is ridiculous. Its like me saying .... awww a Rolls Royce Phantom is trash because I've never driven it and Honda Accords are better.
