Nas, Chuck D & Killer Mike Among "The Best Hip-Hop Artists To Get Schooled By"

Talib Kweli, DJ Premier and RZA also make Green Label's list of "The Best Hip-Hop Artists To Get Schooled By."

Nas, Chuck D and Killer Mike are among “The Best Hip-Hop Artists To Get Schooled By,” according to a list compiled by Green Label.  

"In hip-hop, where lyricism and 'the hustle' are valued so highly, there are countless artists that could — and often do — fit the role of being a teacher,” the articles says.

The article labels Public Enemy’s Chuck D as "the ultimate politically and socially conscious emcee.”

Talib Kweli, the article says, is known for his introspective rhymes. “It’s his astute observation of the human condition on tracks like ‘Respiration' and 'Get By' that truly sets him apart from other artists,” the article says.

    yes Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Every One " you must learn"

    If you care to get schooled on the facts of life, or rapping in general, then you should turn to the great and all knowing Rick Ross. He can teach you things such as learning to run a business, marketing and promotion, running a successful record label, and much more.

      ^^ He ain't a producer (he's like Dr. Dre, telling niggaz how to make a beat and then taking all the credit) and a DJ could NEVER be considered an artist, say that to someone who could actually play an instrument and they would sure pop you in the mouth

    • Mumbles

      He's a DJ and producer. That makes him an artist.
