Rules - please read carefully!Which artists are eligible?
Any artist who is recognized as a rapper, or who raps as part of an act. However, an artist should be voted for solely on their rapping skills rather than a favourite artist who occasionally raps on the side.Can I vote for groups?
No, as this is a list of 100 great rappers, you may only vote individuals, though you may vote for specific members of groups...e.g Left Eye of TLC, Andre 3000 of Outkast or Flavor Flav of Public Enemy.When does the voting end?
1st April with the countdown following shortly after.Where can I get some ideas?BET's Top 50 Most Influential Rappers (2011)About.com Top 50 MC's (2007)Celebrity Networth's Top 50 Richest RappersNME's Top 30 RappersWikipedia List of Hip Hop ActsHow do I vote?
The only method of voting is via PM to me a list of your top 50 rappers, Please award your #1 act 50 points, the #2 act 49 points etc. You must send a list of AT LEAST 20 acts, your #1 act will score 50 points regardless of whether you send 20 acts or 50 acts.How should I send my list?
Please send as follows:
#50 [ACT] ("favourite song") ....1pt
#49 [ACT] ("favourite song") .....2pts
So begin with your 50th favourite (which receives one point) at the top, down to your most favourite (your #1) at the bottom...for an extra bit of data which we can have some fun with during the countdown, I'd like you to put your favourite track by that artist (either as a solo or feature i.e which track they delivered the best rap on) next to your choice. If you have any queries about specific artists and their eligiblity, please raise them in the thread - and we can decide there. If you have any other questions, please do the same!
Get voting!PS thanks Wayne, I did steal some of your work in writing my rules
