Sure those legends are influential and probably all ranked in my top 10 but most of the modern mcs can't hold the torch and that's why the legends are still the best in the game, just like when Fresh Prince drops his next album it should be up for album of the year, the pioneers still set the standard, anyway this is refreshing to see the real mcs get credit where credits due, would've been nice if they threw in the Fresh Prince since there's definately a lot out there that try to do the rapper/actor thing:

These artists are the legend L.L.Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, K.R.S One, Slick Rick and Kool G Rap. Here is the discussion from various bloggers and insiders. Watch and weigh in!

It's a complete joke that Lil' Wayne's the modern day Slick Rick and Drake's the modern day Big Daddy Kane, the old school rapper that I'd compare them to would be Vanilla Ice 'cause they make weak pop rap but he's probably better than them as well...
