Wow I don't even know if I'll be able to vote during this one. I doubt I could choose between Snoop and Grandmaster Flash, Tupac and Nas, and a ton of other potential match-ups. Although I will say that NWA should win although it's close between them and Run DMC, Snoop, Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Tupac, and Public Enemy.

You should add Boogie Down Productions, Cex, the Streets, RJD2, Squarepusher, Aesop Rock, Prefuse 73, De La Soul, Mary J. Blige, Digable Planets, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Blackalicious, LL Cool J, Kurtis Blow, Kanye West, and the Roots though. I could name a few dozen more, but people here probably would of never heard of them.

LL Cool J is in the competition. The Roots and De La Soul unfortunately were both on the bubble and didn't get in.

The arguments for who should get in could rage forever, but honestly anyone else added probably wouldn't stand a chance against most of the artists in the tourney.

Dre. vs. Cube in the first round, that'll be a tough pick for me.

KRS One said it best, "Rap is something you do, Hip Hop is something you live." [ Great song by the way ]

Man there are going to be some very tough choices in this one. :-o Some squashes too, but the tough ones are going to be very interesting. :-?

This should be fun! :-) ;-D

When you finish this Ironman I'm running my version of a music tournament. I don't really need anyone to vote though, I already know who will win. ;-)
