Well this is an official poll for the most debatable topic. Who is the best rapper ever. As the proponent of the thread i will open it by giving u nmy choice.
I have tried times without number to choose who is better without avail. Just listen to all eyez on me and Ready to die to know why.

    Sugarhill Gang; "Rapper's Delight" is a product of their ingenuity.

    um, i'm gonna have to go with Weezy...(let the flaming begin)
  • hotpiece101hotpiece101 Registered User Posts: 4,042 Senior Member
    he doesn't look up to Jay-Z anymore.

    Lil Weezy to Complex Magazine:
    "I don't like what he's [Jay-Z] saying about how he had to come back because hip-hop's dead and we need him. What the f--- do you mean? If anything it's reborn, so he's probably having a problem with that. You left on a good note, and all of the artists were saying, 'Yo, this is Jay's house. He's the best.' Now he comes back and still thinks it's his house. But we f---ed *****es in your bed already. It's not your house anymore and I'm better than you."

    Old Eminem (serious).

    Nas and Jay-Z need to be rebuked. They need to understand that they are not the ish anymore. Other rappers have come up and experienced a matched (if not greater) level of success.

    And besides, I think Weezy is sooooo sexy. Don't ask me why (I know that he needs to get his orthodontia under control and he is just not too attractive, but he just gives off this vibe)...

    Papoose probably

    I'd doubt any rapper within the past 10-12 years, and that includes biggy and 2pac. If I had to give it to anyone I'd give serious consideration to Rakim, KRS-One, Chuck D....jayz/pac/biggie/nas all have been great, nas in particular, but each one has their flaws. Jayz has had a few very week albums, same with pac, and biggie only released 2 albums...
  • idontcareidontcare Registered User Posts: 236 Junior Member
    ooh also...Biggie of course...and I'm liking Clipse
    but Papoose is just really talented

    1.Notorious B.I.G
  • LaxAttack09LaxAttack09 - Posts: 2,183 Senior Member
    lol @ eminem in the top 3
  • yuccayucca Registered User Posts: 971 Member
    top 3 is already pretty good,right?
    It's just my personal idea. Maybe you will believe in USnews ranking more.
  • LaxAttack09LaxAttack09 - Posts: 2,183 Senior Member
    In my opinion eminem came out with 1 great album (his 1st) and one good album (his 2nd), after that everything got geared towards what was going to get the most radio play...and went downhill fast. I find that most of the real good rappers, the ones that I consider to be the best, never made huge impacts on the radio. Sure, a few great rappers did (nas, jayz, biggie, pac) but these days everything on the radio is about how much $$ you make, what cars you drive, how hardcore you are. Added to this is the fact that most rappers don't even write their own rhymes these days.....it sucks.
