Jay-Z Finally Accepts Industry Accolades

Rapper SHAWN 'JAY-Z' CARTER is delighted to be recognised as the greatest MC of all time, despite spending years fighting the music industry and its plaudits. The 99 PROBLEMS star, who is dating R+B superstar BEYONCE KNOWLES, ranked top of MTV's Greatest MCs Of All Time list recently - beating out competition from EMINEM, RAKIM and BIG DADDY KANE. He tells MTV, "I'm not an artist; I'm a hustler. The industry didn't accept me right away - I felt it was my enemy. "But as the years went by and I came to make friends in the industry and feel more accepted, every time something like this happens, it's a great thing for me."

I do agree that Jigga is one of the greatest MC's of all time... but to say he's the best... well I wouldn't go that far... I would certainly rank Em above him, even though Jay has more experience and has been in the game for a longer period of time.But never mind my idle chatter! lol! Big props go out to Jigga for his accomplishments and being named by MTV The best MC of all time.
