    Eminem.

    To me, the Beastie Boys have always been little else but a white version of Run-DMC. That said, they were ill, but they didn't have the same impact as Em did. I remember being the only white kid in my grade for years on end that listened to Hip Hop and having to put up with the whole "why do you listen to rap? do you wish you were black?" type nonsense. Then Slim Shady LP dropped and everyone and their brother listened to rap.

    definitely eminem. dude brought Dr. Dre back, started shady records which brought about 50 cent...now a huge name in hip hop... and he brought about g-unit... which was pretty much the biggest group in hip hop for a couple years.

    This is a tough one...I think the beastie boys opened the door and eminem knocked the bitch off the hinges....I think beastie boys helped expand hip hop well across racial lines...they r the reason why white people my parent's age gave hip hop a chance...

    Eminem is the biggest influence the past 10 years though..

  9. Eminem. The Beasties were big time though. Five classic albums that still sell units right and left? Paul's Boutique (which aged like wine)? You can't hate on the Beasties.

    Beastie Boys first major release: 1986

    Eminem's first major release: 1999 (not counting Infinite, however, far from a major release anyways)

    We're talking a difference of 13 years.

    Winner is: Beastie Boys (TKO), and it's not like they've gone away either.

    Eminem had a bigger influence than the Beasties in terms of pop-music appeal, but as far as influence on hip hop goes:

    Beastie Boys have to be put as #1, especially when dealing with white people in hip hop.

    Beastie Boys are Hebrew/Jew middle eastern Semitic peoples they are not "White people."


    It pisses me off when cats always forget too mention Jewish cats for being Jewish....

    Asher Roth, Beastie Boys = Jewish/Semitic, get it Kosher.

    When an emcee is Latino everyone knows, black everyone is well aware ... but Jews, Jews never get any credit.

    Eminem is the most influential person in Hip-Hop History, period.

    Already.

    Wow at the sheer stupidity of RM.

    Eminem had more influence?

    WTF?

    Why cause you hear all sorts of dude rapping about raping dogs?

    Beastie Boys opened the door for Eminem, not to mention played a huge part in rock/rap party music.

    Man I can't believe how moronic some of you are, just you like an artist better doesn't mean he shits bars of gold.

    western jews stopped being middle eastern decades ago.

    as for them not getting credit, most people pretty much assume they own Hollywood and anything even remotely to do with entertainment and music.

    Yeah but thats classifying rappers by their religion. The example you gave of emcee's being latino or black is about their race.

    Are you expecting the media to start calling Lupe, Mos Def and Snoop as muslim rappers instead of being black.

    PS. I do admit that we shouldn't forget someone's religion as well as thier race.

    Truth is....

    Vanilla Ice had a bigger influence on hiphop than both of them.

    First hiphop single to ever top the Billboard chart? Ice Ice Baby.

    First hiphop album to ever sell eleven mill? Not 50....it was Vanilla Ice's "To The Extreme".

    A lotta caucasians who listen to hiphop today wouldn't be if it weren't for Vanilla Ice. He opened up the market.

    in terms of influence on hip hop itself... Beastie Boys, no question


    they changed a whole lot of shit


    Eminem didn't change that much, he just did things better than anyone did them before... the idea of having poppy singles, rapping about 'horrorcore' or drugs or fame or crazy stupid shit, the complex flow full of multis and internal rhymes, being a successful white rapper... he didn't invent any of that shit, people did it all before him. he just did it well

    plus eminem only got big in 1999 so by definition he didn't have any influence at all over the best decade of hip hop
