So with all the success of the GOAT rapper tournament I thought that doing a similar one would be just as fun and spark as much debate as that one did. SO, this is how it's going down.

  • Nominate as many albums as you want for as many posts as you want. Just don't nominate the same album over and over. That's just silly.
  • Studio/Independent albums only please. No mixtapes. That's why it's a GOAT Rap ALBUM tournament. :o
  • Seeding will be determined by the number of nominations each album gets.
  • Please only nominate albums you've actually listened to. Don't go all "ILLMATIC DA GREAT OF ALL TIMEZ!" if you've never even heard it in it's entirety. That goes for voting to. You don't HAVE to vote on something you're ignorant too. We'd rather you not.
  • I was going to list some criteria to think about before nominating, but I'll save that for the voting round.

That should just about do it. Thought this would be cool because when the voting rounds start, people will actually be able to listen to the albums, or at least some, before voting and thus giving a more accurate vote. Plus you get your music knowledge up and maybe discover some new artists. Plus the voting might not be as lopsided as it was at times during the GOAT Rappers Tourney because you can't really go off name value all too much. So, get on it. Lets see the Illmatics and Ready To Dies pour in. :rogan

Voting ends Friday November 9th at 11:59pm. The first voting round will then commence the following Saturday.

@blur, why blueprint 2? Always thought that album was too long and it had alot of filler. Not even a top 5 Jay-Z album imo.
