Yeah, I said it. The top dog for me is definitely KRS-One but it’s a rat race after that. Cappadonna is dope. Nice & Smooth too. And as far as lesser known artists, Edan and Buck 65 are up there. The key element all these artists possess that makes or breaks any live performance is the ability to create an intimate setting with the audience, no matter if it’s a crowd of 20 people or 200 people.
