Rode NT1000, seen a lot of heavy hip-hop guys recording with it? why?

I was wondering, in the last few days I've seen videos of Ski Beatz recording Mos Def with this mic, I've seen Lil Wayne recording a verse for reference with it (not a serious recording though but still, it's Lil Wayne, i'm sure he could afford 20 U-87's if he needed them, and he can afford throwing them to the garbage after the use ).
Plus a big time hip-hop producer from my country uses this mic on a daily basis.
This mic goes new at 329$ which is dirt cheap for the guys I've mentioned.
What's the hype about?
(and please don't start with the "It's THE hip hop mic, it makes rappers get a good flow and lyrics" sarcastic comments. pleaseeee)

+
I'm using a Rode NT1-A, does anybody has both of them and can tell me how do they differ in their sound?

I think the hype is trebly sound

Check our AAmicrophones.com He'll sell you a chinease made mic frame with upgraded parts inside the mic frame for about 400 dollars. for 700 i think he'll sell you a c-12 type tube mic which has the high end crispy responce will sound good in hip hop.

There is no hype with this mic (except the hyped high end)

And no, no heavy weights are using this mic for vocals

I haven't heard too many people rave about them for hip hop and I personally am not crazy about the Rode series but if it works well with a particular vocal, who am I to argue??? It's always about getting the right sound!!!
