Rolling Stone Magazine have infamously been known to create titles for people who have reached a peak of success. It seemed like this time around it was Hip-Hop’s turn to make its crown.
“Now more than three decades old as a recorded medium, hip-hop is deeply embedded in popular culture – to the point where its stars seem not only larger than life but also, as Rick Ross once put it, “deeper than rap.” But even as they sell out arenas and top the pop charts, rappers still court the respect and esteem of their hip-hop peers. The title King of Hip-Hop still means something. In that spirit, just as we did in June with the Queen of Pop, we’ve crunched a pile of data to try to determine who is the current King of Hip-Hop.”
The article Rolling Stone wrote seemed very long and just jabber mouthing, so I took the time to try to make this sound as simple and easy to read just for our KillerHipHop fans. Check after the jump how Eminem was crowned, ‘King Of Hip-Hop’.
