Chris Rocks Top 5 Hip Hop Round Table

Chris Rocks Top 5 Hip Hop Round Table

#Top5

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.

Check out the discussion as everyone shares their respective lists the reason these artists stand top to them courtesy of Revolt TV.

Biggie

The Internets are always turning up rare gems from our youth. As the Internets chat back and forth about Hip Hop in NY it seems like a great time to share a glimpse back at NY’s King during his climb to greatness. Nearly 20 years later we get a short documentary originally recorded by Passengers, a youth-orientated show on Channel 4 in the UK we get a look at Biggie during the period after his debut Ready to Die has sold over 2 million copies.

We’ll see all the expected central figures as Biggie touches on the pressing hip hop issue of the mid 90’s . Enjoy
