Wewe pia acha kujifanya hapa na Ujuaji za penny mbili. Motown was mostly a RnB, Soul record label no major hip hop albums were produced there. So lets stick to the topic at hand here.
All those rappers will tell you how they grew up listening to motown music in their homes. This is further evidenced by the amount of sampling of motown music (and/or music of that era) in A LOT of hiphop music. Hiphop didnt just spring into being!

Yet they did not record their albums at motown. Neither did motown promote their albums. Sampling exists across all genres. If an artists samples one record in an album that does not mean that Motown influenced the whole album. Stick to the topic at hand. The listwe knowa nothing about Motown S/He know about Badboy giving us Life after death or Aftermath giving is Dre's 2001 but not Motown which is not even mentioned in the credits or in the song
