I hope the no votes aren't coming from people with little knowledge of the artist... that's why I abstained, clearly this is one that needs to be thrashed out by the more knowlegeable folks as far as hip hop is concerned. I have absolutely no knowledge / taste as far that genre goes.

It may come as a shock to you, but we don't all listen to the same music. If that's what provokes your departure I'm not sure if you ever understood why most of us keep coming back here in the first place.

Personally I don't really care for some overrated rapper whose biggest claim to fame is getting shot to death. His two mediocre albums don't do anything for me. It seems somewhat childish voting for someone who has no real influence on the genre except for the continuing fad of inciting gang violence.

So no.

I've had a very aggressive stomach virus the last few days. That post reminds me of the vile that's been spewing out my anus for the last 24 hours. It stings, it stinks, and in the end I know it's all just shit anyway so I'm going to flush it down my toliet and live life while it sinks into the sewer with all the other crap that been posted on this nom.

Of course I could go into why your post was inaccurate and silly, but what's the point honestly? You've already made you're mind up that you don't like him and apparrently so has everybody else. I was just venting when I said I was going to leave and I understand we don't all like the same kind of music but I haven't seen a very convincing, accurate reason why he's being kept out (inciting gang violence? Jesus.)

I don't really give a shit what your assessment of my opinion is, but thanks for the offer.

God damn right.


I don't have time to read through the commentary here, but I could guess what it says. I'm pretty sure the blowjobs came out of the wood work to say this wasn't de la soul, or some other hipsters approved horse****. but they are, of course, blowjobs and when they hit 40 and look back on a life of posturing, Their "no" vote among many other things will be deemed regretable.

Biggie had a few things slated against him. For one, P. Diddy produced his albums. Nothing to say there, the man likes Mase, he ought to be run out on a rail.

Secondly, he came out in '94 when supposedly the Bob Dylan of rap, Tupac (who sucks), was ruling the scene. So he's naturally knocked a peg down from hype alone.

But Biggie was a storyteller. You get the idea that innovation was second to making the scene. If Tupac was Dylan, Biggie was Fitzgerald paiting broadscenes of a distopic NYC depraved of all its merit through flash over substance.

Its easy to take the man as another wave-rider on the tsunami brought by NWA, but "gangsta" wasn't something he picked up on to pay bills, its something he was immersed in. With all due respect to Compton, Califnoria has its booming metropolises. NYC in the Reagan years was depraved and ghastly. Tupac backed up the Digital underground, and then chose to portray a crack dealer. You got the impression that biggie sold coke to feed his kids, and chose to narrate his life on record.

His career certainly wasn't prolific, but what he put out is a dark retelling of glittering, big-city streets filled with the lost souls of the damned. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to give way to a bunch of snark-encrusted morons to post Juicy lyrics.

If I wasn't in the rap game
I'd probably have a key knee deep in the crack game
Because the streets is a short stop
Either you're slingin crack rock or you got a wicked jumpshot
****, it's hard being young from the slums
eatin five cent gums not knowin where your meals comin from

your facts are so wrong that it actually drew me out of abstaining to vote 'yes'

*COMING SOON*
As we now have six eligible contenders for the Hall of Fame, keep an eye out for the next Induction Thread!

And now...back to business.

Next up:

Nominated by Anteater

The Residents


Without a doubt the most mysterious & avant-garde group of all time, The Residents have been doing weird, awesome music anonymously and consistantly from their beginnings in the late 60's to the present day.

Named as an influence by outfits such as They Might Be Giants, TISM, Mr. Bungle, Primus and Animal Collective, the band has put out 60+ albums worth of material, gone through seven major world tours and were among the earliest groups in existence to make their music accessible digitally.

Their sound has gone through a variety of evolutions in the last forty years, drawing in everything from nursery rhymes to progressive rock to ambient to synth pop to metal, etc, as well as types of music we don't have genre tags for.

In a nutshell, this is one of the coolest and most innovative bands in existence, and if anyone deserves a shot at the MB Hall Of Fame, it's this bunch.
