Rap is a genre of music that will almost always provoke some type of emotion. Our book is based off one of those emotions-- the ongoing debate about who are the greatest rappers of all time (G.O.A.T.). But instead of just throwing our personal opinions out there, we came up with a mathematical system that kept us as honest and objective as possible. Each artist was rated numerically based off ten criteria, and these numbers also included data from public album averages from two different sites. These total numbers put them in order-- not us. We started this project on August 12, 2012, and did not finish until September 30, 2013. So a lot of work, time, integrity, and attention were put into it. This book has been fun and at times chaotic, but it has given us a new appreciation for the genre. Please do not take this book too serious, but respect the work and effort put into it. We would like to give much respect and luv to all the artists keeping Hip Hop alive and respected.

What happens when 3 longtime fans of Hip Hop culture get together and compose a book pertaining to rap music? We are not exactly sure but that is how it happened. Whether it was buying albums, listening to the radio, reading rap magazines/websites, watching rap videos, writing rhymes, or attending concerts the three of us have been involved in Hip Hop in some way or another. With additional contributions to rating the rappers from Mr. Wayne Maye of http://mayepov.blogspot.com/we feel there is finally a book from the fans’ point of view. Combined you are looking at over 25 years or more of experiencing and loving Hip Hop culture and music.
