I love Dr Dre, but he made the list while The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Rakim, Ice T, Big Pun, Gang Starr, Wu Tang Clan, Redman, Big L, LL Cool J, DMX, Eazy E, Ice Cube, KRS One, Kool G Rap, Kool Moe Dee, Ghostface Killah, Big Daddy Kane, Scarface, OutKast, Lauryn Hill, Grandmaster Flash, and N.W.A. as a whole didn't? Dre's music is pretty dope, but most of his stuff has been ghostwritten, so I think that there are a lot of other Hip Hop artists that are more deserving of his spot. Plus, many are more influential.
