                      Kimo Man Well, if you’re not gonna go by numbers, how are you evaluating them? Longevity? They’ve had a 30 year career- a longer, and more successful career than anyone on that list. I can only surmise that they’re not your cup of tea-fine, but you have yet to back up your C rating with anything substantial.

                      Damian Odess-Gillett Numbers really don’t have anything to do with it. Especially in Hip Hop. As a matter of fact the top sellers of hip hop are always dumbed down rappers groomed for a mainstream audience and I promise you those albums were bought in the suburbs not that it’s wrong but they can like The Beastie boys but doesn’t mean Kool Moe D is gonna give you an A cus you outsold everyone 😆

                      Kimo Man, By what measure? The album that the author was evaluating sold 10,000,000 (the author’s own album from the same year, sold 300,000).

                              It was an absolute shame that LL never battled Kool Moe Dee live! It would have been incredible although I personally believe Kool Moe Dee would have destroyed him lyrically and he knew it!

                                        probably the bigger fans like myself who like all of their albums not just License to Ill.

                                        Their beats were dope, instrumental tracks were awesome and different but their rapping was elementary at best—even for 8’s rappers

                                            Funny how most people now wouldn't know the name Kool Moe Dee but I bet they will know the Beastie Boys.

                                                  What a bleesing it is that with your best friends you found an emblematic band. What a bleesing to know with them the glory and success. What a bleesing it is to watch the time with them and grow old together. What a bleesing to be able to create music with your best friends to brighten the lives of so many people. It's true, MCA's death wasn't a bleesing, but the gift of his presence for 47 years will always be appreciated.
                                                  Thanks MCA, Mike D and Adrock for so many memories...but above all for being our unforgettable and fun Beastie Boys 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

                                                          It looked like he gave good grades to all his friends. The fact that he gave a higher grade to Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince than to Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys means I think he was threatened or turned off by them because they were very successful and also very different from his style. Perhaps he didn't appreciate how those two bands were able to attract a wider fan base than him and some of the other more traditional hip hop artists.
