Best Rapper Alive?


#1

From what I’ve gathered from previous posts there isn’t to many Rap fans on these forums :stuck_out_tongue:

But from what you know… who do you think is the best rapper alive? Judging by lyrics and the flow of the music. Not publicity…

Krs-1


#3

The Riza

I’d have to say Eminem. Not because he’s white, but because he’s actually a very good rapper, and a lot of his lyrics have a lot of meaning behind them.


#5

I saw that comming from miles away. :smiley:


#6

Fuck that shit! Ice T owns the lot of them!:24:


#7

I’m glad nobody said Lil Wayne… Id hafta pimp smack alotta you.

It’s hard to say… Rakim or BDK has my vote


#8

Eminem gots my vote


#9

Anyone from NWA.

There quite a few young rappers that have come out lately that have shown a lot of talent.

Lil Wayne is a talented rapper, though he prefers to make commercial garbage tracks to sell records.

Kayne West. Even though earth isn’t big enough to contain his ego, the guy has incredible music talent.

Lupe Fiasco is a young kid that blew me away with some of his underground tracks. If he keeps on being unique and doesn’t fold to commercialism, he could be the next great one.

Now greatest rapper alive? Man that’s hard. I’ll give you a top 5 in no particular order.

They might be a comedic duo. But they own the shit out of every other rap artist on the planet.
