place dre above jay-z. i dont care what position jay-z goes but include eminem in the top five.
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by 4 Play(m): 1:11pm On Jan 27, 2007|
dre is the best producer rap has ever seen,but he is certainly no rapper.
In fact ,I wouldn't place him in the top 10
Jay-Z does not belong to that list
50 Cents is a better lyricist,people dislike because of his many childish beefs with other rappers.
This is my list:
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by naijafan(m): 1:17pm On Jan 27, 2007|
fore play, cool down. what is methodman and 50 lookin for on that list? it says greatest rappers of all time, not of sometime in history
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by 4 Play(m): 1:29pm On Jan 27, 2007|
Method Man has been rapping since 1993,that is 14 years
Fiddy has been rapping since 1998,that is 9 years
If someone who has been rapping for 9 or 14 years does not deserve to be on the list,then who is.
How long has rap been mainstream?
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by naijafan(m): 1:49pm On Jan 27, 2007|
lol. if that's the case, then u might be considering ll cool j above them
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by freshkid(m): 3:10pm On Jan 27, 2007|
@ 4 Play:
i wud assume u dont knw poo bout rap. Hw wud u wanna say Jay Z sudnt be in dat list? U wanna put eminem ahead of Jay Z. Jay Z is 1 of d best to ve evr touched the mic. His lyrics r killin. He has changed the game entirely. 1 of the most flexible rapper to ve evr rapd. That nigga has done it all. He has done it wit the best of soul: MARY J BLIGE, best of RNB: R.KELLY, best of ROCK: COLDPLAY AND LINKIN PARK, best of RAP: DR. DRE, RAKIM, BIGGIE SMALLS ETC. He has basically done it wit every1. He has killed everybody on each songs. Other than Biggie Smalls i dnt fink there is any other wit lyrics beta thn Jigga man himself. Ma nigga go check up on ur rap history n name those that ve done it beta than HOV.
Ve u heard CHRONIC? dat has to rated in the top 10 hiphop/rap album of all tym. My guy get ur facts ryt, aiight.
U definately ve 2 b clownin sayin 50 cent shud be on a list lyk dat. My guy do u listen 2 rap or bunch of love songs?
Holla bk @ me for mre stizz bout hiphop/rap.
And year i agree METHOD MAN shud be on d list dats y i put WU TANG CLAN
PLS THE NAME OF THE TOPIC IS TOP 10 GREATEST RAPPERS OF ALL TIME.

|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by 4 Play(m): 5:58pm On Jan 27, 2007|

As for Jay Z,i don't know what people see in him but he has not done one good track since "Can I live"
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by naijafan(m): 6:27pm On Jan 27, 2007|
well, i didnt see that. i was cool wit the first five.
but you would agree wit me that ll cool j should be higher than methodman and 50 if its by how long peeps been in tha game
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by sykboi(m): 6:40pm On Jan 28, 2007|

|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by paddy_lo(m): 7:04pm On Jan 28, 2007|
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by 4 Play(m): 7:09pm On Jan 28, 2007|
How can the top ten greatest rappers include the Fugees and the whole of the Wu-Tang Clan.So perhaps Lauryn Hill and Pras are great rappers.
So ODB,U-GOD,cappadona,Inspectah Decck are all among the greatest?
If u are going to include a group,why not NWA who had Dre,Eazy-E,Ice Cube
WhY not DPG,cYPRESS hILL
What the hell is Outkast doing on that list?
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by paddy_lo(m): 7:37pm On Jan 28, 2007|
i look at group artists as one,afterall we are judging the music they release and not them per say. . .again i go by impact made by each person or group. . .wu tang are icons,u just can't go breaking them down,same goes for outkast,(who is better big boy or andre 3000?),don't know but i know outKast got it popping for Atlanta and put them on the map,
The fugees stepped up during the east coast west coast beef,and released one of the best albums of the 90"s. . THE SCORE. . .listen to it again and see the skills present in them 3emcees from jersey. . .
N.W.A was tight but they had more impact as solo artists than as a group. . dre,cube,easy-e. . .
again its my opinion,and we don't have to agree. . .
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by freshkid(m): 3:00am On Jan 29, 2007|
Wot it do homie, u seem 2 b a tru hip hop fan. U ve got it goin on.
Ur list evn kills ma list.
Outkst ve been dominatin d game since 1994 n deserve 2 b in d list. Dey r hiphop itself. The Fugees: Hw cud i 4get dem?
u ve really done ur home wrk bot hiphop/rap. N 4 all those peeps who fink 5o cent sud b in d list, dey really r buggin. We tlkin bout rappers wit street credibility. C'mon ma niggas. Wots goin on?

The Wu tang and the Fugees are groups!! The title says, "Top 10 Greatest Rappers" and not groups!!
E-40? Paddy_lo, please tell me you'
ve not been drinking too much sepe. E-40's one of the wackest rappers out there!! If u think hiphop is all about slang-talking then ROF-LMAO @ you!!!
Oh, one more thing. Immortal Technique is one person and not a group!!
Ask any true hiphop head. They will tell u Immortal Technique's one of the illest rappers in the game. The fact that you don't know him is because he's an underground veteran and a sick-Bottom mc who doesn't do mainstream music.
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by paddy_lo(m): 3:47pm On Jan 29, 2007|
E-40 whack?. . . nigga get your poo str8. . .your favorite artists. . on your list pac,Big,Nas,Canibus,Kweli,eminem and common all bow down to and respect E-40. . .forty is a Rap legend. . .better stay in naija and don't come over here. . or near the Bay Area. .or West coast in General and say that crap for real. . .u don't know what u yappin about.

i wonder y sum1 wud say Jay-z has only made one Good song, and den name 50 cent as a great rapper, it just doesnt add up.50 is gud, but not great,
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by Bamsyle(m): 10:32am On Mar 17, 2009|
There are very many good rappers, but when using the word 'great' to describe rappers; these come to ma mind:
5. Ice Cube
9. Red/Meth-man (like A-40, I see 'em as twins. Also, I can only list the duo, not individuals, in ma Top 10 List)
10. Snoop Dogg
The first two names were not numbered in error . . . these 2 are the greatest ever . . . I rate 'em equally . . .
Dr Dre, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, Chuck D, Craig Mack, Mos Def, Talib, Jadakiss, Ludacris, Kool G. Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Big L, Big Pun, Wu-Tang, Blackthought, Common, Immortal Technique, Warren-G, Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick, The Game, MC Lyte, Q-Tip, Naughty By Nature, Mr. Cheeks (of Lost Boyz), Heavy D.
Wow . . . so long . . . too long . . . I'm out . . .
|Re: Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time by ice_zik(m): 2:28pm On Mar 18, 2009|
My own list is as follows:
4. G-Unit(50cent,Lloyd Banks,Tony Yayo,Young Buck(Past Member),The Game(past member) I listen to all 5 esp. 50 and Game
8. M. Shinoda (Of LINKIN PARK) aka Fort Minor
9. Mode9 (Believe it or not!)
10. Kanye West
My list is based on the impact of these rappers on my life and conception of Rap and Hip Hop culture as a whole. Personally, from sheer flow and ability to spit on a phat beat, I rank Jay-Z the greatest rapper of all time, however, I'll put lyrics above beats any day and that is the reason why Eminem and NAS are above Jay-Z and why names like T.I, B.I.G and even Nigeria's Mode9 are on my list. I love the members of G-Unit (Past and Present) for their sheer "SWAGGER" when it comes to rap. The Game and 50 Cent are prime examples. Kayne West is the master of commercial rap bested only by Jay-Z. M. Shinoda is one of those guys that evolved rap into something beautiful. Many people ignore him because of his membership of Linkin Park, but who remembers "In The End" (Both the original and esp. the remix) or "Numb" etc.
