This group is credited for putting the South on the hip hop music map and inspired a legion of acts.

Absolutely! Next to Run-DMC, Beastie Boys, and PE, the rap group most deserving this honor. Based on the criteria of originality, musical excellence, and influence, they are a no-brainer. Rap music right now is dominated by southern artists and you can bet that close to 100% would name the GB as a major influence. On top of that, their bluesy beats and vivid, humorous, sometimes over-the-top lyrics won them a loyal fan base and were always well regarded by music critics.

N.W.A's defs the most deserving rap snub now.

I can see how people might have that opinion. But within rap circles, Boogie Down Productions were the more influential and innovative of the two. KRS One is second only to Rakim and Chuck D in terms of influence as an MC, and in terms of quality, Boogie down has at least two classic albums to N.W.A.'s one.

During the late 80's BDP were actually close to P.E. in popularity. A bit more underground though.

I know, but... from the looks of it the VH1 Hip Hop honours are even more of a joke than the Rock Hall.

oh god some of those bloody comments.

Yes I also highly regard BDP and they definitely also deserve recognition. There is probably some confusion on my part since I sort of consider everything after Criminal Minded to be KRS-One solo.

Man you have to be out of your rabbit mind to think BDP or Tribe Called Quest had more influence on Hip Hop than the Geto Boys!
