Nobody is stopping them from being nominated. I haven't because I don't have any albums by them. I nominated Biggie because I love his albums to death and he was a big influence on me and on hip-hop in general.

I didn't vote no to Buddy Holly because nobody bothered to nominate Ritchie Valens.

I just think it's curious, is all. Of course that's not why I voted no.

Completely? Imagine some of those lyrics being used by a bad rapper. His lyrics did far worse than 'miss the mark' from time to time.

I don't think either that he's as artistically insignificant as you think he is. The man had a vision, which was executed perfectly over the course of the two albums he made while he was alive. I've talked about it a lot on here and since I'm running short on time i'll just post a link to an old thread.

I wanted to vote no because of the lack of a big discog, but I couldn't bring myself to it. Dude's a legend.

abstaining on account of me owning nothing by him. I'm such a hiphop n00b.

Abstaining on the grounds of lack of knowledge, no back catalogue at in my collection.

This one's for some else to decide!

WTF? 9 votes No? Who ever the hell is voting no atleast better speak up. And I swear if Biggie isn't at the very least eligable for renomination i'm leaving MB for a good long while because BAM there goes my faith in this otherwise spot on site.
