Snoop Dogg is beloved by many, but he might not be an A+ player in everyone’s book. Kool Moe Dee was one of the first rappers to win a Grammy Award and the first rapper to perform at the Grammys. Back in the 1990s, Kool created a report card grading all of the top rappers of the late 1990s. Snoop Dog recently reacted to Kool’s B+ grade on the report card.
Kool Moe Dee’s “rap report card” from the 1990s has resurfaced on social media. It is going viral for evaluating numerous of the era’s best hip-hop artists for their distinct skill sets. The report card includes Lauryn Hill, Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, and others. The report card was also included in Elliott Wilson, Sacha Jenkins, Gabe Alvarez, Jeff Mao, and Brent Rollins’ 1999 album “Ego Trip’s Book of Rap Lists.”
As rap fans revisit the list several years later, multiple rappers have been trending on social media. They were influenced by some of Kool Moe Dee’s preferences. Snoop Dogg entered the conversation, reacting to his own B+ rating.
It was determined based on his overall score of 87. Snoop received a 10/10 for originality, a near-perfect 9/10 for inventiveness, voice, flexibility, and recordings, and a 7/10 for language. Mystikal, Lauryn Hill, Method Man, Busta Rhymes, Biggie, and 2Pac received higher A and A+ ratings. DMX, Redman, Mos Def, Black Thought, Common, Canibus, and others received B+ ratings as well.
Lauryn Hill received the maximum score of 97. The Beastie Boys received the lowest score by far, with a 70. Future GOATs JAY-Z and Nas fared poorly, scoring an 82 and an 84, respectively.
Snoop seems unconcerned about receiving a lower mark than some of his peers. He thanked Kool Moe Dee for including him on the list and congratulated himself on his average B+ grade point. The rapper is extremely chill, which is one of the main reasons why his followers hold him in such high regard.
