    Default What makes a rapper a legend?

    Is all it takes a horrible early death?.. I'm saying this because of the Big L thread where 2 people (so far) have decribed him as a legend..

    I'm not taking shots at them or Big L at all, I like L!, but what gives him this legendary status?.. But then again I wouldn't even call Biggie or Big Pun legends, just some great rappers who unfortuanly passed away early..

    To me a rap legend has to do something for the rap game, Eazy brought gangsta rap to the mainstream and Pac seemed to be the driving force when the Westcoast was its most powerful and since he left this has become far more apparant..

    Also, no offense BTW, but you cant compare who and what L brought into the rap game with what Eazy did....

    Not a rap legend.. just a legend in his area, for he dedicated his life to it.. went to jail for his folks there.. influenced many up coming rappers and the new hyphy movement.. and like pac since losing him more people realize what he was to the yay

    [size=18px]eminem a very talented rapper, producer, business man, and has a great impact on this industry, i know people might disagree on the rapper part
    since he made "fack" "ass like that" and shit but if u really know em's music and have heard atleast the whole marshall mathers LP you'll agree wit me

    had a look in my dictionary

    Legend, story handed down from the past; a notable person or the stories of his or her exploits.

    I said "people like that".. but I really dont think that Big L, Biggie, Eminem and MAC DRE are established RAP LEGENDS, I base this on the thought that "if they didnt exist then..".. but i feel they are legends to their own areas and fans.. I definatly agree on the rest though

    yeh plus if you want to use the race thing, the fact him being white worked against him at the start of his career because of people like Vanilla Ice
