3. Notorious B.I.G.
5. 50 Cent
Everyone on this list with the exception of Scarface & MAYBE Biggie has gone Diamond (10 million) copies sold...Now with Jay-Z ALWAYS being about the Money AFTER The Three Greatest Past (Tupac, Biggie, & Big L...now reason being Big L isn't on the top 5 list BCUZ he's a rapper and not a Hip-Hop artist but the GREATEST LYRICIST OF ALL TIME & we are talking hip-Hop ) how can he be a top 5 hip hop artist without EVER making top sales? Most of his albums didn't go platinum until after his first retirement and I use that term Brett Favre loosely...Kanye West saved his Career on the Blueprint after calling Yeezy corny, saying he'll NEVER SELL & told Dame NOT to sign him to Roc-A-Fella & use him for his beats even though it turned out that Yeezy would be the ONLY Roc-A-Fella artist to go platinum other then Jay....50 had almost All of his original artist with the exception of maybe Tony Yayo go platinum....He's DEFINITELY OVERRATED...SORRY DJ Acki I usually side with you but your dead wrong (Eminem & Biggie reference) final point I can show you a twenty minute song of Jay-Z stealing lines from EVERYONE in the game with him and before him...NOW I KNOW WHAT UR THINKING....EVERYONE DOES THIS RIGHT!!! WRONG...Try with your amazing research and DJ skills to find that much material from the artist I named stealing and making hits off of others due to the ignorance of the audience not realizing it's a remake/stolen idea/theme or lines...c'mon now DJ Acki he told you along time ago he has no empathy and he's a plagiarist when he said and I quote " You made it a Hot Line, I made it a Hot Song" Hip-hop/Rap is supposed to be as original as possible otherwise your an R&B artist.... #Fact
now comment on that +DJ Akademiks
please I want to hear your opinion and insight
