Jay-Z has beaten out the Notorious B.I.G. for Time Out New York's "50 Greatest NYC Hip-Hop Artists" list.

Hovito won the honor thanks to his genre-bending collaborations, and for being the best at enduring "the day-in, day-out shift of the modern rap era."
According to their website, Jay "filled the void created with Christopher Wallace's death with gold-standard-setting LPs like 1998's Vol. 2 Hard Knock Life, 1999's Vol 3 Life and Times of S. Carter and 2001's The Blueprint."

The list features a host of old school rap figures like Kool Herc (No. 47), Digable Planets (No. 36), and Big Daddy Kane (No. 11), plus the newbies, including Nicki Minaj (No. 35) and A$AP Rocky (No. 39). Rakim's lyrical expertise helped him crack the Top 15, and Sean "Diddy" Combs landed at No. 7. "Combs made his greatest impact on hip-hop with his entrepreneurial skill as the magnate behind Bad Boy," the story reads. "The template for every would-be empire builder who followed in his wake (not to mention the master of the original Harlem Shake)."

As expected, the list is causing controversy among readers. "While lists are ALWAYS subjective, and NO list can or should be argued, it's pretty clear that this list is more arbitrary than carefully constructed," commented one reader. "It's a great list that pays tribute to a great history of artistry from our area, but it is not fully accurate, nor properly indicative of a true hierarchy, and should not have been presented as such."

Another person debated Jay-Z's placement."This is what happens when people who don't understand real rap and just look at charts and sales do 'rap' list they pick the most popular person," the reader wrote. "Nas is No.1 and Big is No. 2 Jay-z is third at best knock it off."
Making the process interactive, TONY allowed select rappers to nominate their favorite MCs, and encourages readers to share their thoughts via their Twitter page.

Sales matter when providing reasons why Jay is the GOAT but they never do any other time. I wonder why that is

Cuz nobody fu*ks with anyone else. Jay gets everyone to buy his sh*t.

The people who like Nas' bootleg the fu*k out of him anyway.

I remember my homeboy back in high school said Nas was the GOAT. He siding have one legit Nas album. But he had some ol bullsh*t R&B cuts.

Nas is better than Jay, but Jay in his prime held the lyrical crown for commercial rappers. People talk about him making pop records like he wasnt nasty. Bullsh*t, put this in prospective back in 2001 when Jay dropped Takeover the record was so strong that n*ggas thought Nas was finished. I remember, I had a computer back in '01 the audio and video of Jay-Z at Summer Jam was on every rap site. It looked ugly for Nas for a minute, at that time nobody was saying that Nas was far and away superior to Jay-Z, it wasnt till later years when n*ggas started hating on Jay that they started fronting like Nas always had a crazy gap over Jay.

But prime late 90's early 2000's Jay was considered neck-and-neck with Nas at the time. Nowadays Nas is far ahead but it wasnt like that when I first started using the net.
