Rap, like any other form of music or art...

Has both it's idiots and it's savants. Don't let one or two artists ruin a beautiful art form for you. To say that any one form of art is "less than" or "not real..." is the mark of someone who is not a professional. How many pros do you EVER see slamming other forms of music? Never heard a country music artist slam a rapper - and I grew up on country, since the 80's. Never heard a rocker or rapper slam other music. Not a pro. If you want to make it to the top then you have to act like you're already there. You get what you put out. You get what you order. Order crap and crap comes to you. Order awesomesauce and awesomesauce comes to you

Allman Bros if you just include 69-73

If you counted American artists, obviously Dylan and Hendrix would top the list. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. I didn't see TP on that list. ZZ Top pre 84. Aerosmith, Skynyrd. REM, Replacements, Husker Du, Minutemen,Ramones and the other "alt" acts certainly are awesome but plenty of people barely know who they are.
Reasons for Allmans. Duane is one of the best guitarists and Dickey is mighty fine himself. Gregg is THE best white blues singer ever. From Duane's connection to Muscle Shoals and Memphis soul, the band has the connection to the roots music that started it all and they have the exploration and experimentation of the psychedelic age

The Negro Artist...by Langston Hughes

The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain
by LANGSTON HUGHES
This article originally appeared in the February 23, 1926 issue.
One of the most promising of the young Negro poets said to me once, 'I want to be a poet--not a Negro poet,' meaning, I believe, 'I want to write like a white poet'; meaning subconsciously, 'I would like to be a white poet'; meaning behind that, 'I would like to be white.' And I was sorry the young man said that, for no great poet has ever been afraid of being himself. And I doubted then that, with his desire to run away spiritually from his race, this boy would ever be a great poet
