    I think Gucci had a ridiculously strong run from 2008-2015 (whenever he went in last), and can be seen as the founding father for the whole Atlanta sound as well as bringing through people like Thug, Future etc. But I'm biased.

    Oh sorry, you mean in music?

    No idea. Probably Lady Gaga or Wiley.

    kanye west.

    or dizzee rascal.

    obv wileys more important to grime, but dizzee is/was just better. higher peaks than wiley ever had, even if wileys been more consistent (which feels like a weird thing to say considering all that hes released).

    I assume you mean muscial artist/musician here?

    There should be a "best artist" 2000-2009 and one 2010 - now, IMO at least.

    Why would you put Beyonce in there? Isn't she more of a product of the industry than the other way around? She's also the only mentioned here that has absolutely no personality. Kanye for me, even though My ... Fantasy is overrated.

    Interesting picks, what's your reasoning.

    Gaga's come up a couple of times. What's the thinking behind that?

    Its wild because Gaga hasn't been worth a thing culturally for the past 4 years??? She had a hot 5 year run but... I don't think she even has any influence past that point.

    for the 2010s I'd say - meaning "important" as in popcultural impact, Lady Gaga and dunno Skrillex? K. West also. Lorde was enjoyable "mainstream", too.

    I assumed people were joking when listing the above artists. If not, the dissonance between this thread and the values usually professed on this board is quite interesting.

    I think "best" is too vague. It could mean successful or influential or just something that someone finds personally satisfying.

    The most satisfying new musical acts for me this decade would be Seekers International and Jay Glass Dubs.
