So, I hope y'all noticed that the second part of the poll came out.

Wu presence has been reduced from three to two MC's (thanks to utterly idiotic knock-out selection by the makers of the poll): now we have Johnny and Tony still in the ring.



In round two, matches are these (the leading one is written in italic):

Notorious B.I.G. bracket
Jay-Z vs. Lauryn Hill
Juelz Santana vs. Fabolous
Missy Elliott vs. Lupe Fiasco
Mos Def vs. Kanye West

Pimp C bracket
Lil Wayne vs. Lil Boosie
Bun B vs. Scarface
Young Jeezy vs. Ludacris
Chamillionaire vs. T.I.

2Pac bracket
Eminem vs. Young Buck
Nelly vs. Ghostface Killah
Big Boi vs. 50 Cent
Jadakiss vs. Nas

Big Punisher bracket
Andre 3000 vs. Method Man
Pusha T vs. Common
Busta Rhymes vs. The Game
Ice Cube vs. Snoop Dogg




Greatest victory in Round 1 was Eminem vs. Soulja Boy (95:5... what a surprise), while tightest victory was Mos Def vs. Talib Kweli (51:49)

I like Common.

I think it's nothing wrong, it's just taste.

I like common too. I enjoy his music.

Clipse is just the hottest shit out right now though. They've cold crushed everything I've heard them on in the past couple years.

Whens the last time you heard someone say "You heard that new Common? He was fucking killing that shit!" Its usually more like, "You heard that new Common? Yea that was good." Never really blown away by his shit though.

Well, I was blown away by that song off Finding Forever "The Game", produced by Preem. Shit was bangin. Can't deny it.

Actually, it was produced by Kanye. Preem just scratched the hook. Bangin' track anyway.

I chose Common 'cause they ain't said if it was only who's hotter at the moment - and you gotta admit that he has much more impressive catalog than Clipse.

Pusha T is a real excellent rapper though, but that was an easy choice for me.

This was a really hard choice. I love what each of them bring to the game and their styles are so original. In the end I went with the underdog so it won't look like Meth got blown out by 3K.

Ghost will beat Nelly but Eminem will take him in the next round (or eventually)
