He made story telling into an art form....literally lol It would not have been rappers like Eminem or 2pac if it wasn't for Slick.
Yeah he never gets the props that he deserves that's why he was inducted into the Hip Hop Hall of Fame.

Where do you come up with these claims that people aren't getting the attention they deserve and are underrated?

So crazy.

LOL

There was a big controversial debate recently over what a news reporter wrote about Slick Rick. Slick Rick was either late for a concert or it was something he did at the concert not sure but the reporter said Slick Rick was not a legend and people made a big deal about that. It was all over the radio and people were giving their opinions.

There are other people in the Hip Hop community that NEVER get their props not just Slick. Doug E Fresh, Krs One, LL Cool J, etc are all underrated as far as their impact/music.

I can't even talk to you when you make claims like that.

You think Krs One gets the props deserves? Ice Cube is underrated as well.

They all get the props they deserve for being pioneers. The whole list of guys you rattled off are in the Hip Hop Hall of fame and get talked about all the time.

Ice Cube gets credited as one of the pioneers of gangsta rap. His name gets tossed around by the media in those top MCs of all time lists constantly.

What kind of bizarro world are you living in?

LOL

DJ I must be living in Never Never Never land because I have NEVER heard Krs One OR Ice Cube get the props they deserve.

Krs One complains ALL the time about this as well as Chuck D.

Krs One and Ice Cube have NEVER received any accolades or tributes for their contributions to Hip Hop neither has LL Cool J.

The media loves LL Cool J but he is never taken seriously for his works and contributions for hip hop.

Just because someone is talked about does not necessarily mean they are being recognized for their impact and influence.

Most of the time I always hear people hype Jay Z, Biggie, 2pac etc

NO ONE never talks about Krs One or Guru. I never heard anyone talk about the rappers of that era. No one never talks about LL's first two records that were very important to hip hop.


Where are these award shows and critics that are acknowledging what these rappers have done for hip hop?

Why do you place so much emphasis on these?

Nobody seriously cares about music award shows.

Oh my God, Stereolab are not in the Rock n Roll hall of fame or got a grammy for inventing post rock. How dare they never get the credit they deserve.

You're right awards are not everything.

I did also mention critics so I was not just placing emphasis on award shows specifically.

I have never seen a documentary or read a commentary in a music magazine that acknowledges the impact those rappers have had on Hip Hop.

I can remember those artists getting tons of press in the early - mid 90s and that wasn't the Hip Hop press that was in the Indie press.

As for them not being mentioned now, well that's up to the artists that are around now to do.

NWA has received two lifetime achievement awards in the industry. You're not off base on Guru though, but thats the way Gangstarr wanted it, to be underground for life.
