50 Cent & DMX Were Bigger Than JAY-Z Says Big Gipp #50Cent

Big Gipp has disputed the notion that JAY-Z is the greatest rapper of all time, arguing 50 Cent and DMX were both bigger in their prime.

Big Gipp has disputed the notion that JAY-Zis the greatest rapper ever, arguing 50 Centand DMXwere both bigger in their prime. The Goodie Mobrapper shared his candid feelings about Hov in an interview with The Art of Dialogue after the Brooklyn-bred billionaire was ranked No. 1 on Billboard and VIBEs Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All Time list Gipp said that JAY-Zs music simply stopped playing when 50 Cent broke through with Get Rich or Die Tryin in 2003 and claimed that the G-Unit general who was ranked No. 17 on the list gets overlooked by New York publications because of his ties to the West Coast. When 50 came out, I aint hear no JAY-Z music it just stopped playing, he said. Come on, bruh! I was there When 50 came out, he shut everything down. And the reason why they didnt give it to 50, you know why? Because the West Coast did his music. New York has never crowned 50 Cent because the West Coast did his music: Dr. Dre The Atlanta native then made similar comments about DMX, claiming his emergence in 1998 with Its Dark and Hell is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood which made him the first living rapper to drop two No. 1 albums in the same calendar year eclipsed JAY-Zs own success with Vol. 2 Hard Knock Life. To me, DMX was bigger than shawty all day, he continued. Shawty put out two albums in one year that smoked anything he put out! And you still said he was the best? Fuck this industry, man, cause yall still want who yall want to be the best, but the numbers say DMX is the biggest thing walking round here. And when it wasnt no DMX, it was 50 Cent. It was still somebody else. He added: The movement that Ruff Rydershad was totally different than all of the shit that ever came through New York. It was just totally street. Nobody had seen a dude from New York sleep on bitches with dogs roof-roofing at the camera, ride motorcycles and shit, and then pray on stage and cry. DMX was a muthafucking true artist because he never cared about money. Big Gipp even questioned the impact of Jiggas Roc-A-Fella Records arguing Murder Inc.was a hotter label during its heyday. I still think Murder Inc. was bigger than Roc-A-Fella, he said. When you go back and look at them numbers, Ja Rulewas nothing but on the radio, was nothing but on the radio. If you go back and look at the Roc-A-Fella roster, it was Beanie Sigeland them; it wasnt Ashanti. While Gipp acknowledged Hovs genius and pedigree as one of the best technical and baddest rappers that has ever come from New York, he believes his lack of crossover appeal in other regions makes him unworthy of the G.O.A.T. title, and that the only reason hes propped up as the greatest of all time is because of New York bias. JAY-Z aint never been on the radio here hella crazy. No! he said. He has big records, but all the records that people probably heard in New York, they never heard them records down here. Same goes out West. They probably heard the big records with Beyonc Big Pimpin,but if you go back, they never heard a lot of shit that people love Jay for in New York. Out here on the West Coast, they love Eazy-E and Cube. In Texas, they love , the Geto Boys. In the South, they love who they love. My thing with Hip Hop is: stop all this whos the best? Aint nobody the best! You just the best in your region. Read more
