osagie sef.... Is it by number of Albums we know legends? You seemed too fixated on the number of albums the people you mentioned have.

How Many albums does Dr. Dre have? Just two, but he is a legend.

That being said, I cannot fault the names in your list cos these are DENFINITELY LEGENDS.. However, there should be room for more especially if someone like M.I that could be considered new school is there. What about Mr Raw, Lord of AJASA, iLL bliss etc?

In this kind of topic, everyone has got a list. People should chill, that's his list...that's his show. If he has convinced you, fine...if he hasn't, then don't abuse. I agree with Mode9, ruggedybaba and Eedris on the list, all others; they can just be close there, not yet there.

Well all his opinions and points are very solid, based on his criteria (lyricism, impact, body of work and originality) I can't think of a better list. The only part i can disagree with is where he said 2shotz introduced pidgin rap, I believe Trybesmen were the first set of pple rapping in pidgin. With their plenty nonsense single that was the song that introduced pidgin rap to everybody.
