B.E.T.'s Top 10 Rapper List of the 21 Century Does Not Include Jay-Z! BET Explains - Watch the Video

UPDATE: If you don't know already, BET's "Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century" did not have Jay-Z or Nas on there. In the video, some of the people who made that decision sit down and take the time out to explain their actions.

UHH OK... We still think Jay-Z made a huge impact to the 21st Century in Hip-Hop as well. Maybe that's just us?

Here is comment from one of our Twitter peeps:
