We all do it. In barber shops, in the gym, in the car. Anywhere that a conversation be held, Hip Hop fans have discussed, compared and had to defend their Top 5 MCs. Does your personal Top 5 Hip Hop artists include staples like Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac and Nas? Or do you assemble a list of those artists that hold a special place in your heart but might not make sense to others.

With his movie of the same name about to hit theaters nationwide, Chris Rock puts to together quite a powerhouse round table of NY media personalities to share their 5. Ed Lover, Angie Martinez, Miss Info, Shaheem Reid, Jayson Rodriguez, Datwon Thomas and Rock’s Top 5 co-star Rosario Dawson make up the all-star collective.
