The Results are in……

You all voted and spoke loudly.  The winner of the Best Hip-Hop Artist of ALL time is Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter (with 75%).

With 17%, Notorious B.I.G came 2nd; Nas came 3rd with 8%.

Shawn Corey Carter was born in Brooklyn, New York and began writing at a very young age.  His debut album, Reasonable Doubt (which is an undeniable hip-hop classic), started Jay-Z’ push to being the #1 hip-hop artist.  Each and every album Jay-Z has, has gone platinum (selling at least 1 million copies).  Despite many “beefs,”  Jay-Z has remained atop of the hip-hop industry.  His next album, the Blueprint 3, will be released September 11th (exactly 8 years after his initial Blueprint album).  Utilizing the industry as a trampoline, Jay-Z has catapulted himself towards the top of entrepreneurs in hip-hop as well, with numerous business ventures–most recently, his own record label “Roc Nation”.  If you don’t know about Jay-Z’ work or don’t like him much, jump off a bridge for the world’s sake do a little bit of research and listen to his music attentively.
