(1) Andre says:

I think this is a pretty good top 100 even though i have heard of and seen better but.. theres like 2 tupac and notorious big songs they are the two best rappers ever they should deserve more but i still think this is a prety good list but I used To Love H.E.R. #1 song hmm i dont think so its a good song and very creative but not the best song ever i know a lot of better songs and i have heard a lot of more better songs by Talib Kweli than get by what about blackstar too this list is mising a few and some should be gone…

What about 2pac-changes, you ask true rap fans and the majority of them will say 2pac-changes. That song changed the face of rap.

(16) adum says:

best rapper and no one comes close is 2pac hands down period, you can see a little bit of pac in every rapper, and if you ask any rapper pac influenced them in some way. pac period stop debatin it. then nas comes second

January 17, 2007 at 3:53 pm
(17) JWM says:

I can’t believe what I’m hearing. Everyone knows that when someone dies they are then regarded as this super larger than life musician. look at Nirvana, a very popular group, but as soon as Kurt Cobain died Nirvana was then all the sudden responsible for changing rock & this big influential band. While Biggie & Tupac are definitely in the top 10 all-time, to me they are not in the top 5. The best 5 all-time in no particular order are: Rakim, Chuck D, Method Man, Ice Cube, Eazy-E. And some consideration would be: Tupac, Biggie, DMC (from Run DMC), KRS-1, Nas. Tupac has one of the best voices & delivery, but his rhymes to me just werent as witty & clever as the others. When Tupac was alive he was not regarded as the best ever, not even the best at Death Row at the time. But Dr. Dre as far as producing, rapping, and finding talent is without a doubt the greatest single icon in rap history. The list of emcee’s he has brought us is remarkable. Maybe some of you are a little younger or dont realize but he started: Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Nate Dog, Black Sheep, Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game & made Tupac from good rapper to superstar.

April 3, 2011 at 11:22 am
(18) fact check says:

nirvana was popular because they were basically the first grunge rock band to be successful, not because Cobain died. They did bring in the modern rock we hear today. And if you didn’t know, many people are not regarded as the best ever in any category until they are dead or have gotten to the age of forty. Tupac died at 25, how could you regard him as the best ever if he wasn’t even half way done with his career before he got shot?

November 13, 2011 at 12:35 am
(19) Talisha says:

I’m pretty sure biggie and 2 pac are the reason most of these rappers are there so really 2 pac and biggie should be there

January 23, 2007 at 6:09 pm
(20) Jordan says:

How the hell can u hav a top 100 without 2pac “Changes” or DMX “Up in Here”, or “Ruff Ryders Anthem”or 2pac’s “Life Goes On”. Ok list but need a lot more DMX, 2pac and Biggie.

January 24, 2007 at 3:29 pm
(21) slinnshady says:

2 pac is da gr8est then jay-z thts my opinion but i guess this guy has his opinoin

Great List! But where is “Kool G Rap – Ill Street Blues”?

February 3, 2007 at 9:25 pm
(27) assmoney says:

great list… obviously we all have personal opinions (what they do – the roots is my all time fav song), and most of these people dont have nearly as much hip-hop knowledge as you. lol @ the guy saying that i used to love h.e.r. shouldnt be number 1 and all the tupac and biggie dickriders. i like the love for wu. only thing you’re missing is some black star songs (thieves in the night and respiration… maybe definition)

(37) sumguy says:

wow some of these comments lists are so odd, i mean sum people put 50 n the game, to me eazy e is proly one of the most overrated rappers ever, but ya their should be so many more tupac songs on this list, and in terms of sum great rappers how bout tupac, rakim biggie the gza, raekwon, and the bone thugs arent bad either.

February 19, 2007 at 11:11 pm
(38) David says:

How could you leave out “It Takes Two” – Rob Base, “I’m Bad” – LL Cool J, and “Roxanne, Roxanne” – UTFO. Where is DMX & Ludicris? No Whodini?! I never even heard of the #1 song, so I played it and it really sucked.

February 22, 2007 at 3:57 pm
(39) driger says:

The best rappers: 1. Eminem and thats all!

February 24, 2007 at 10:25 pm
(40) DontWorry says:

this is for eveyone who says tupac/2pac is the best rapper. you need to listen to more rap and not just 2pac. expand your taste in hiphop. ive been listening to rap for over 12 years and tupac dosent even make top 10 rap songs of ALL time. ps: eminem dosent either.

February 26, 2007 at 9:28 pm
(41) biggie says:

california love, big poppa, more pac and biggie in general

pretty good list though

March 4, 2007 at 12:20 am
(42) Tonyyyyy says:

No Matter What You all say NOBODY COMES CLOSE TO THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G. HE IS THE GREATESET THAT EVER TOUCHED THE MIC!!!!!!!1

March 4, 2007 at 12:25 am
(43) hiiiii says:

THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE SAY EMINEM IS THE BEST IS BECAUSE HE IS WHITE!!!!!!!!!!! BIGGIE IS THE BEST. NOT NAS,PAC,JAY,RAKIM ONLY BIGGIE SMALLS

March 4, 2007 at 3:37 pm
(44) jj says:

tupac is the best everyone else suck
tupac is the best who ever toched
the mic

March 6, 2007 at 12:00 am
(45) G says:

dre is the best producer, eminem is the best rapper, not because he’s white.

March 11, 2007 at 2:21 pm
(46) Mike says:

look there is no one absolutely no body possible in this world that can replace 2pac he is the best who eva walked the earth best to grab hold of the mic

March 11, 2007 at 10:03 pm
(47) Your Mom says:

Eminem takes it with his insane way of delivering the lyrics, but not the new commercial EM the EM before Corporate America changed his style, and his sick lyrics.

March 11, 2007 at 11:15 pm
(48) Joe says:

my Top 10
1. Ice Cube
2. Wu Tang
3. Nas
4. Papoose
5. Notorious BIG
6. Tupac
7. Public Enemy
8. Dr. Dre
9. The Game
10. Jay Z

March 14, 2007 at 9:18 pm
(49) Rob says:

All bout the old school. started it all
Top one:
It Takes Two- Rob Base

March 14, 2007 at 9:21 pm
(50) Rob says:

All bout the old school. started it all
Top one:
It Takes Two- Rob Base

Reason why every 1 loves tupac and biggie is that probably the only mainstream rappers that had a lot of big hit records. Unlike more less known rappers that had a couple of great songs. Quality over quantity

March 14, 2007 at 9:31 pm
(51) MC Viper says:

2pac is the best next is em and dr dre and DEAD CELEBRITY STATUS

March 14, 2007 at 10:09 pm
(52) Maverick says:

does this guy know who 2pac or notorious BIG is? Changes, California Love, thugz mansion, ambitionz as a ridah? those aren’t good?

March 18, 2007 at 3:37 pm
(53) X-Kuhmyoonikait says:

Yo, this is B.S.

Errybody knows the greatest rapper of all time is none other than STAGGA LEE!!

“STAGGA LEE AND WE UP IN THE ZONE, GOT THE KEYS TO DA CRIB & AIN’T NO ONE AT HOME!!”

(54) the real rob says:

Has any ever hear of immortal technique, hes pretty under ground but if you like rappers that accually have somthing to say hes good

March 23, 2007 at 5:22 am
(55) Dzadza from the 818 says:

I agree with you all, 2pac was the greatest rapper, no one can top him. Immortal Technique is a lyrical genious, listen to his track. Yet NO ONE CAN TOP TUPAC, which other rappers lyrics are being reviewed and studied because of their greatness at UC Berkely and other prestigous universitys

March 23, 2007 at 4:13 pm
(56) CuB says:

i think people focus too much on the life of the rapper rather than the lyrics

March 23, 2007 at 6:02 pm
(57) Steve says:

i think the best rapper ever is Nas only because you know hes consistent he has never really fallen off or anything and he keeps putin out hits

March 24, 2007 at 12:27 am
(58) Abraham says:

No…. all wrong. first of all, how do u have “breath” higher on the list than “new york state of mind” n 2pac n biggy arent the greatest of all time. the only reason there considered the greatest is cuz they did died early in there career. They had potential to be really good, but i dont think they reached it.
#1. “Nasty” Nas (his lyrics are amazing)
#2. Eminem (he has crazy delivery. he can’t retire, he has to help bring back rap, cus whats consider rap now, is horrorible)
#3. 2pac (poet)
#4. Rakim
#5. Biggy
#6. Jay-Z
#7. Snoop (even though he did go pop, he’s still an O’G)
#8. Wu-Tang (best rap group ever)
#9. Common
#10. The Game (If he comes out with another great cd, i’ll move him up)
The best rap song of all time is
“Today Was A Good Day”

March 24, 2007 at 9:49 am
(59) Killa $tan says:

1. 2 Pac
2. Biggie
3. Nas
4. Jay-Z
5. Ice Cube
6. Snoop
7. Eazy
8. DMX
9. Wu Tang
10. The Game
11. Common
12. Big L
The best rap songs are 2 Pac Changes, Ice Cube It Was A Good Day, Nas Thugz Mansion, and Biggie Juicy

March 24, 2007 at 2:26 pm
(60) Andrew says:

How isn’t Immortal Technique in anyones top ten. Check out Dance with the devil and listen to the freestyle at the end.

March 25, 2007 at 8:07 am
(61) Lil Snypez says:

man, yall is jokez. we all no dat da best rappa iz lil wayne. n e 1 erd da song make it rain remix? yall wood agree den

March 25, 2007 at 3:55 pm
(62) Andrew says:

Lil Snypez ur js. Lil wayne isn’t even top 10 let alone the best. Dirty south rappers have sick beats but are lyrically the worst. Pac,Big,Snoop,Nas,DMX and evn the game would kill Lil wayne on their worst day.

March 25, 2007 at 10:59 pm
(63) devine says:

sike lil wayne great but um here go my list cuz yall too old skool

The Rza aka Bobby Digital, the Gza (Genius), ODB aka Dirt McGirt, Inspecta Deck aka Rebel INS, Raekwon aka the Chef, U-God aka Baby U, Ghostface Killa aka Iron man, Masta Killa aka noodles, and the Method Man aka Johnny Blaze

March 28, 2007 at 9:54 pm
(67) Stefano says:

Biggie is the best rapper and his best hit was ‘hipnotize’ respect to tupac aswell ‘thugs mansion’ and ‘hail mary’ but my favoirte rapper is Nas and i liek all his songs but if i had to choose the best ‘one mic’

March 30, 2007 at 4:15 am
(68) DJ Recollection says:

ok…if your list of top 10 rappers includes 50 Cent, u dont kno crap bout hip hop

Top 10

8) Jeru the Damaja
7) Jay-Z
6) Dr. Dre
5) Eazy-E
4) Rakim
3) Biggie
2) Nas
1) Tupac

March 30, 2007 at 11:14 pm
(69) mf jed says:

No, Check out my melody? Rakim
and where is any EPMD songs? Come on, who doesn’t love “you gots to chill”?
Random songs come to mind like “Ain’t no future in yo frontin, and holy crap I just thought about no Public Enemy songs. Dude, that list is really not well done.

April 4, 2007 at 5:27 am
(70) Italian Balla says:

Pretty gud list there, but I’d have NY State of Mind much higher then that. Have u heard sum of Nas’ rhymes in it, makin it (IMO) the best song on the best album of all time, Illmatic.

April 10, 2007 at 9:53 pm
(71) bob says:

Lose Yourself–Eminem can’t even make the list? I was expecting it in the Top 10. What a joke.

April 12, 2007 at 1:21 pm
(72) Matt says:

yo your lists are good but a lot of you are forgetting about Big-L and Pun, they were amazing back in the day, lyrically and there delivary was unbeleivable.

Another thing, Papoose and the game are the only good rappers out there right now, (nas and jay-z too obviously) anyone else agree

April 12, 2007 at 10:11 pm
(73) Nat says:

This is a good group of songs, but there’s just too much missing, and a lot of songs that are, well, let’s just say questionable. And why is there not a single mention of Notorious Thugs, one of the greatest songs, rap or otherwise, in the last 20 years.

April 13, 2007 at 12:41 pm
(74) gabe p says:

eh man good list… what about reakwon: criminology or ice cream… and who ever put nate dogg as the number 1 rapper is a joke… what song of his could step up?

i mean everyone is gonna thow things differently against the wall but still even if u dispute the order these are pretty much legit

April 15, 2007 at 10:10 pm
(75) death-row says:

deathrow record labels should be in everyones top and ludacris “runaway love” is a great song but by far my favorite sont is “juicy” by biggie smalls ladies and gentle men ajurned

(78) Shadow133 says:

Yeah I saw “The World is Yours” at #7 but i think more songs from Illmatic should be up there like “Lifes A Bitch”.
Anyway, not entirely bad, but like the others say more Biggie and Tupac

April 24, 2007 at 1:51 pm
(79) DeKaYd says:

All Tech n9ne songs are tha best, hands down. Tech n9ne, Lil Wayne, 2pac and Eminem hold it down.

you people are retarded. tupac was great, but if you think he was the end all be all of rap, you should probably expand your horizons. i can say that nobody has ever had a better flow than rakim, and even though a lot of the top rappers have said the same thing, it doesnt make it true. changes was not even close to pac’s best song and you people think that it was the best rap song of all time? what

(115) Matityahu says:

this list has songs that are good cuz their socially consious and catchy but it doest stick to the roots of hip hop too well… its too hard to have just 100 songs on a list and its too hard to pick just 10 artists… u gotta look for MCs with flow AND innovation… so in no real order…

Pac, Biggie, Big Daddy Kane, Outkast, Beastie Boys (controversial im sure but their cut and paste beats were true innovative genious that MANY rappers utilize check Paul’s Boutique to see what i mean), Kool G Rap, Big L, NWA, Snoop, Common, Immortal Technique, Nas, Jay-Z, Grand Master Flash, Gang Starr, Eminem, Wu Tang, Big Pun, Cypress Hill, Talib Kweli, Jadakiss (sets the bar for punch line rap)

MCs who set the Foundation: Busy Bee, Kool Moe Dee, EPMD, KRS-1 (and still), Whodini, Marly Marl, Run DMC, Slick Rick, Ice-T, Doug E. Fresh and Dana Dane, Sugar Hill Gang,

DJ’s to note: Grand Wizzard Theodore, Mix Master Mike, Biz Markie

Female MCs who widened the scope of Rap: Eve (or Gangsta if u like her early tracks), Roxanne Shante, MC Lyte, Queen Latifa, and of course Missy Elliot

Newest Talent who show the most potential: Kanye, Lupe, Papoose, Game

Now before u go and get upset that i didnt put one of ur faviorite rappers on my list consider this: what new contributions did this person add? Anyone can spit a verse and mix a hot beat, but who opens our eyes and really helps us to appreciate what it is that they’re saying? Alot of good rappers make great songs, but only a few can spin a genre in a direction that the world never saw before… thats how these 44 rappers and DJs made my list

(127) B_Lett says:

Alright, there are some decent songs up here, but like almost everyone else says, Tupac’s Changes should be in the top 10 if not number 1.

After listening to I Used To Love H.E.R. I do understand why it was put at number 1 on the list. It after all, completely explains what hip hop is all about.

If I had to make a list for the top 10 rappers, here is what I’d have to say.

1. Tupac
2. Eminem
3. Common
4. Dr. Dre
5. Nas
6. Biggie
7. Bone Thugs N Harmony
8. Outkast
9. Lil Wayne
10. Jay-Z/ Game/ 50 Cent

2pac hands down number 1. Biggie falls in the category with Tupac, but I feel that other rap artists have shown more to me than he has.
Eminem is truly genius with his lyrics and his delivery.
Common and Nas both have some of the best messages in Rap/Hip-hop.
Dr. Dre is the most influential figure in Rap.
Bone Thugs N Harmony are the sickest rappers alive, no one matches their flow, and they are coming back.
Outkast, like BTNH, flows well and has impacted Hip-Hop well.
Lil Wayne can freestyle like no other. He packs the most heat of today’s rappers.
The Game, 50 Cent, and Jay-Z all have their ups and downs, but they all have heart towards Rap.
As 50 Cent has gone on with his career, he is showing more and more potential.

no way 2pac and biggie are the two best rappers ever.EMINEM by far is the greatest.he created a style of rap that NO ONE ELSE in history or rap can top.he’s also the 2nd highest selling rapper of all time just behind 2pac.but…over half of 2pac’s record sales came after he was dead.so therefore in my opinion eminem is the greatest ever

August 30, 2007 at 6:20 pm
(134) Shahboy says:

Krs one, Dr. Dre, and Rakim are the most influencial rap icons of all time.
Rakim’s rhymes are incredibly poetic and his lyricist skills are unmatched by any rapper ever, even Nas. Krs one tought rappers to support their community through MCing rather than belittle the rap community. Lastly Dr. Dre is unmatched in his abilty to produce, and find talent.

(135) JESUS says:

A passionate social activist with expressive lyrics who knew how to appeal to people with his revolutionary views. Never showed fear, commanded immense respect from whoever he dealt with, encouraged people to “stop, study your lessons, always do your best” (Me Against The World) and follow their dreams.

I listen to Pac, but I tend to gravitate more towards his songs like Me Against The World, , Changes, etc. He lived what he spoke (well, most of it) and the fact that he died at the peak of his career only immortalized him. Very emotional in his lyrics, not necessarily the best/most skillful lyrics, but emotional and passionate and can really touch your heart if you take the time to appreciate. This might be stretching it, but Pac is to me a sort of Shakespeare, who will live forever because he spoke of ideas and concepts that everyone can relate to, like jealousy, greed, hatred, injustice, etc. and he did it articulately and with style. Pac knew how to balance meaningful, deep songs with radio smash hits, an ability lacking in a lot of today’s artists

I’d agree with the person who said that Dr. Dre is probably the single most important icon in Hip-hop for his contributions (artists, beats, and NWA) but i’d like to also recognize DJ Premier (he produced a great number of the songs on this top 100) as a Hip-Hop Legend.

November 4, 2007 at 3:30 am
(153) who cares says:

2pac is the greatest rapper ever why? he has the most balanced in terms of sound, lyrics, and style , his flow depending on the emotion of the song voice and lyrics are both in syncronization and you can feel the emotion of the song and music is about emotion feeling it, 2pac does this better than any other rapper. its funny how some people talk about his lyrics most of his songs are acompanied with really good lyrics the only reason you would doubt this is if you have not listen to enough 2pac, the other thing is 2pac is international people all over the world have so much respect for him more than almost any other rapper. and record sales no need to mention that, if he made alot of record sales when he was dead how about if he was alive with music done when he was there? more than the 75 000 000 that he has sold today.

(160) mimi says:

Tupac all day. Then Nas, Big and Hov in that order. Pac may not have had the witty punchlines and the briliant metaphors like most rappers, but his passionate delivery would floor any rapper or MC on the same track. Biggie was outrapped by Bonethugz on notorious thugs, Jay Z was outrepped by Eminem on renegade, such a thing would never happen to pac. he also got message and realness that made people like me identify themeselves with him(I live in Kenya). Metaphors dont intrigue you for ever but the truth will always remain till the end of time. That’s why Pac is highly idolized here in Africa and the world. Until Hov comes up with a track tighter that Nas’ the world is yours, Nas will always remain the second greatest ever and the best alive.

Yo if Pac and Big r the best rappers
then how come Nas’ DEBUT ALBUM Illmatic is considered the greatest of all time in hip hop.
The only other album that can even compete is The Chronic by Dr.Dre.
I dont get how The World is Yours lost to Any 2Pac song
does pac or biggie have any album that is critically acclaimed like Nas’ Illmatic.
and i the only other reason that Pac and BIG are so praised is beacause of when they died, the west vs east beef. if they had died at any other time they wouldnt be considered as great. look at jam master jay,he was shot, he was part of RUN DMC, he was one of the people who brought hip hop to the mainstream, do we hear of him as much as Pac? nope cuz there wasnt as much media attention on hip hop as there was when Pac and Biggie were killed
and if this is the top 100 list where are Africa Bambataa’s or Clive Campbell A.k.a Cool Herc’s song. And for those of u who dont know them, those two started hip hop, literally

(179) Poet. says:

top 10 hip-hop artists for meee

1. OutKast
(not based on lyrical ability, but uniqueness and ability to withstand the test of time without conforming in every single one of their classics)

2. Nas
(no explanation needed)

3. Tupac
(changes – classic, Ghetto Gospel w/ Elton John produced by eminem is probably the best song by him not heard by many.. sadly)

4. Immortal Technique
(great lyricist w/ nice freestyles n’ has the sickest punchlines.. such as in “industrial revolution”. . . and “you never know” and “dance with the devil” are deep)

5. Talib Kweli/Mos Def
(more talib, but i’ll put mos def with him since they have so many songs together)

6. Big L
(sickness on the punchlines and freestyles)

7. Aesop Rock
(most complex and one of the best lyricists ever.. listen to “Daylight” and “Coffee”)

8. Kanye West
(best mainstream with Lil Wayne a very close 2nd)

9. Hieroglyphics
(mostly Del the Funky Homosapien, but overall the group and individuals have delivered so many classics.. 93 til infinityyy)

10. Atmosphere
(great lyrics and more meaningful songs than most anyone else)

honorable mentions –

soulja boy… lol

Biggie was a great freestyler, but songs were a bit overrated, especially after his death.. but even b/c of this, he is still in the top 15/20 no doubt

Eminem has sick lyrics and concepts in many of his songs too

April 29, 2008 at 1:36 pm
(200) LdoubleS says:

Gi Manto, maybe Rapper’s Delight remix ft Rodney P, Skibadee, Chester P, Yungun etc is a bit closer to the greatest song ever. and whoever thinks eminem is the greatest rapper is dillusional. he raps only 4 money. hes way to commercial, he has the sense of humour of a 7 year old and he sonds like he is on helium. listen to JEDI MIND TRICKS,(e.g – when all light dies) or IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE(e.g point of no return) – well they are the best 2 the US has to offer as its all way 2 commerical and has no meaning. and im sure you’ll agree,Im trying to get it through to you uneducated people. you’re not gangsta if u listen to eminem, he is 4 10 year olds. nuff said.

im going to agree with the many other people who have posted comments. how can tupac’s – “changes” not be on this list. jsut listen to the lyrics and the beat, they are awesome. it also sends out a great message and you cant help but listen to the song over and over and over.

(207) BloodBath says:

so ive been an underground head and 80s head a 90s head a mainstream head so i may have a good combination in my list:

1.Nas (most versatile MC of all time, always relevant top 3 best lyrically too)
2.Canibus (illest lyricist ever no matter what you think of the ll beef, he destroyed him. just phenomenal)
3.Big L (had punchlines and stories like no other. that why i never think much of cassidy and wayne when you think of big l’s lines he just eats everyone one alive in punchlines)
4.Big Pun (is there anything i can say? one of the illest lyricists no dopubt top 3 lyricists)
5.Biggie Smalls (great storyteller but his use of excessive violence is not necessary to get this point through. though genius.)
6.Rakim (the PIONEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR the G-O-D rakim allah the definition of flow and relevance he was the never dying always relevant mc)
7.Common( the most consistent mc ever. no question. no album flopped every album of his may be considered in the top 100 of rap)
8.Jay-Z (Reasonable Doubt. Blueprint. wow. always has mass appeal though has “sold out: in recent times)
9.Eminem (Infinite. period. no emcee can ever has such emotion on any track as em has done. maybe ONE MIC and nothing else comes to mind)
10.Black Thought (lyrically one of the this illest and on top of that, he stays positive)

of course theres about 100 rappers i could name but no one’s going to read that. wu tang was excluded cause i cant choose between deck,gza,raekwon,ghost, and method. MF Doom isnt a great rapper just a great producer. cube wasnt that consistent. same with mobb deep, no consistency. pac WAS a poet but his lyricas were comparable to that of a 10 year old with the spin of a sick message behind it so hes def not top 10 -maybe top 20. guru isnt that sick without premiere. same with jeru the damaja. AZ JUSTTTTTTTT missed this list i can argue him as 8-11 no doubt. cormega may have been 12. ras kass top 20 definitely. same with scarface. elzhi may have been top 25. a lot more to mention but i cant go on forever ok i will….pharoah monch, q-tip, mos def hahaha

July 12, 2008 at 11:15 am
(208) BloodBath says:

i honestly feel nas is better than almost every rapper in top 5-20 COMBINED. maybe not including the top 2-4 lol but i see ppl trying to impress with their underground knowledge. canibus nothing more said. techinque is a ras kass biter without the knowledge or lyrics. vinnie paz was eaten alive on fusion centre by canibus eve though they cool. no one can ever shine on a track with canibus thats what history tells me.

July 18, 2008 at 5:45 pm
(209) Furious says:

In response to Andre’s comment, I’m not sure why people insist on calling Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. the two greatest rappers ever. While both artists were extremely influential in progressing the genre of rap, I really don’t think either of them qualify for title of “best rapper.” It may sound like a cop-out, but it is impossible to give anyone a “best” title when each rapper’s style is unique (or at least should be…that’s the inherent beauty of Rap). To call Tupac the greatest holds just as much weight as calling O.D.B. the greatest rapper of all time. Both are dead, both are extremely recognizable, and both influenced rap in a way that no other artist has matched…and I didn’t see any O.D.B. solo songs on this Top 100 list!

(234) scott says:

this is decent not great,heres an example of how waack the guy who made this is tho, on the list he made of eminems greatest songs he doesnt have mosh on the top ten list, yet mosh is one of the only 2 eminem songs included on this list. I also gotta say how waack the list about em is, you have some pretty terrible songs on that list and mochingbird,when im gone,when im gone,lose yourself, and cleaning out my closet, porbably his best songs are not on ems top 10 list

(235) representin' nigeria 4 hip hop says:

i read almost all the comments here, some were quite good but damn some are just funny… i can’t imagine hip hop now if tupac never existed, its just funny that some ppl can make a list with no 2pac in it but deep down i know they all know pac is the greatest… wherever you go in this world there is a pac around you, he is the michael jackson of hip hop, except for the child molestation contraversy that is… here is what i think

15) T.I
14) Ja Rule
13) The Game
12) Kanye West
11) 50 Cent
10) Lupe Fiasco
9) Common
8) DMX
7) Dr. Dre(since this is about rapping but he is 2nd best in the list of rap Icons after pac)
6) Ice Cube
5) Nas
4) The Notorious B.I.G.
3) Jay-Z (Grand Opening, Grand Closing)
2) Eminem
1) 2pac shakur

November 9, 2008 at 10:20 pm
(236) Jon says:

this list has one big error. the number one rap song of all time is changes by tupac. it talks about if there would ever be a black president. If tupac were alive, he would be proud of what has happened this week

November 12, 2008 at 1:43 am
(237) Curious Georgia says:

Not necessarily in this order. But based of the lyrical content. These rappers have spoken for me on more than one occasion. Miss you Pac.

1. Tupac
2. Biggie
3. Petey Pablo
4. T.I./Tip
5. MC Lyte
6. Bubba Sparax
7. Snoop with Dr. Dre (Cronic is still amazing)

10. DMX

November 14, 2008 at 2:20 am
(238) Milla Mane says:

I agree with Comment 16 if 2 pac was still alive he would be just like all the other rappers out there… but don’t get me wrong he is a great artest but there are other lyrical guenius out there that are remarkable. like Lil’ wayne and eminem. and countless others that don’t get the credit they deserve because alot of people just listen to the song for the chourse.

November 19, 2008 at 2:02 am
(239) whiteguy says:

My top 10 rappers:

1. Puff the Magic Dragon – He spits fire
2. Chef Gordon Ramsay – Drops it like it’s hot
3. Tyra Banks – The Queen of Free Style
4. Ice Tray – Supports Ice Cube literally
5. Threepac/3pac – Greater than 2pac
6. Peanut Eminem – Sweet on the mic, but messy
7. Pee-Wee Herman – Quick on the beat
8. William Shakespeare – Lyrical Genius
9. Saddam Hussein – He drops bombs
10. Bobo – Has an Insane Clown Posse

Anyone who disputes this does not know rap. Mill Creek in the heezy. Or hizzy. Or house. Or humble abode. Or apartment, technically.

November 21, 2008 at 9:41 am
(240) David B says:

It’s refreshing to see a list of good songs that doesnt cater to popular opinion. Didnt read the entire list but I read the last 20 and the top 10 which I was happy to see wasnt spiked with the reoccuring regs. Not my picks but still great list.

November 25, 2008 at 5:31 pm
(241) CJ says:

So nothing hot has come out of the south? And there aren’t any females that have laid some killer tracks? For real! I’m not feeling the list. There are many tracks on there that yes, belonged on there but there are so many that I had to scratch my head on. And the #1 … seriously? To each their own I guess.

(246) chris says:

wow this is probably the worst list i have ever seen and i really wish i did not just read that. who ever wrote that needs to go back and listen to biggie smalls, nas, eminem, jay-z, and possibly tupac. and lets not even start with whose better: biggie or tupac cause the answer is simple: biggie smalls is a lot better becuase he could rhyme, had flow, all the songs he did were amazing and just knew how to rap whereas tupac did so much work but very few songs were actually good. everyone says he was a poet and could do whatever he wanted but he was sucha poser and look he got shot before biggie. he had some good songs but i dont see how anyone can consider him the best. but anyways my list would be:
1. biggie
2. eminem
3. nas
4. jay-z
5. lil wayne
6. tupac-
7. dr. dre
8. rakim
9. dmx

WOW…i really wasn’t going to post a comment, but after reading some of the BS comments below, i just couldn’t stop myself….

True, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but honestly…HOW THE F**K COULD YA’LL INCLUDE SOME OF THESE PEOPLE IN YOUR TOP 10 RAPPERS OF ALL TIME?!?!?

Soulja Boy?!? u need 2 stop smokin that angel dust & slap the ish outta urself

50 cent? Kanye West? Game? TI? Ja Rule? Petey Pablo?

and even Dre & Snoop should not be top 10 of all time…they were great gangsta rappers @ the beginning of their careers, but nowhere near greatest of all time…Dre is definitely 1 of the greatest producers of all time tho…

If u don’t have Rakim & Scarface on your list, then you need to step outside your mainstream, radio listenin, MTV watchin shell & discover the real deal…

and if u didn’t even consider Bun-B of UGK then somethings wrong with ya, that cats been in the game for 20+ years now & spits fire on damn near everything he touches…there’s a reason he is featured on just about everybodies album now-a-days…

Wow. What a bunch of idiots for the most part. Half these people aren’t even debating the best SONGS of all time. That’s what this thread is for. Not best ARTISTS of all time. Henry, I see why you don’t leave your “top x lists” open to comments anymore.

(It happens all the time. Hip-hop evokes a lot of passion, especially when the topic revolves around “best MCs” and “best songs.” I welcome the debate. — Henry)

(272) Rafael Garces says:

I dont know how so many of you have Eazy-E as one of the best of all time, thats retarted. I think we have to look at who was on top in the different decades since rap started. And then consider who deserves to be on the top 10 rappers of all time. In my opinion the best MC’s of all time in no particular order.

Rakim, Slick Rick, KRS-1, Big Daddy Kane, Notorious Big, Tu-Pac, NAS, Jay-Z, LL-Cool J, Scarface.

EMINEM is good but should NEVER be put in the same group as Tupac Shakur. Tupac revoulutionized rap for everyone, to him it wasnt just rymes. it was his life he combined his music with poetry to tell his own story. But not just himself, he told the story of all the ppl from the street. ~~~THATS WHY HE IS THE BEST OF ALL TIME.~~~~ NO COMPARISiONS!!
1-Tupac
2-Too Short
3-Easy E
4-Snoop Dogg
5-Notorious B.I.G

Eminem is 5-10

Lil wayne 20-25

there is a distinct lack of Wu on these lists, and especially of method man. i agree with many of the other people whom have been listed ie.

the #1 song is ballz! this dude is obviously from New York which is why he has so many new york rappers so high up in the list. this whole damn list is almost made up of east coast rappers. tupac’s “ambitionz az a ridah” lyrically is better than any of the top ten dude has on the list.

April 27, 2009 at 9:34 pm
(283) scott says:

i am not even a huge fan of eminem but i still have to say that lose yourself is both lyrically and vocally the greatest rap song ever created the problem is these days that people who make these list don’t give enough respect to recent things simply because is it recent. Any lists you look at, best movies,best songs,best mc’s best anything, 90% of the stuff is from the old days

(286) Yusuf Abdul Salam says:

What yardstick do people use to determine who the greatest rapper is. To me, it is the number of great rap songs produced withi a certain time frame, the impact those songs make on the minds and senses of the listeners, the asthetic appreciation the songs enjoy, the flow of the lyrics and its rendition… Ask yourself sincerely who has it all.
Below comes my top five ever:
1. Tupac
2. Tupac
3. Tupac
4. Tupac
5. Tupac

May 13, 2009 at 3:24 pm
(287) Yas Naija Bobo says:

no rapper can match the accomplishment of Tupac when it comes to rap songs. Combine all the other rappers together and juxtapose the best of their songs with one good song from Tupac.That is when you will realise that selecting the best rapper ever is beyond just sentimental opinination.

(291) Grandmaster says:

Two things:

1. If you have Rapper’s Delight at #2, then Rapture should be in the top 10 at least; Rapture came out around the same time, actually paid respect to the other Hip Hop Acts (Rapper’s Delight just stole from other artists), and charted much higher (hit #1, and was the first rap song to hit #1, and the only rap song to hit #1 for about 10 more years).

2. As people pointed out above, Changes is the best Rap Song of all time. It is not just the best hip hop song of all time, but it is one of the most notable and generation defining songs of the past 25 years; there hasn’t been a song as good since.

May 24, 2009 at 11:19 pm

(301) Mark G. says:

I think you must add E-Rule’s “Listen Up” to this list — it is one of the most underrated Hip-Hop tracks of all-time. But one listen and I’ll agree that you have to admit that it belongs here…esp, considering that it was written in 93-94 time frame by a West Coast (LA) rapper that was WELL ahead of his time. You are truly lucky if you own one of these Pallas Records 12″ and can get a small fortune for it if you happen to sell it..

(302) Dylan says:

Hmmm. I hope the major figures and can bring back rap soon. that you hear on the radio now.. Its disgusting. This isn’t rap. Like Lil Flip? All these new rappers that you don’t even know their names because their music isn’t worth it.

For me.. Personally. My top ten in no real order.

Dr. Dre, Wu Tang, Eminem, Mos Def, Nas, N.W.A., Biggie, Blackalicious (because it’s rap that preaches intelligence :) ), Gangstarr, and 2pac.

Again. Thats just me. We just need a revival of these motherf–kers and get rid of this poppy hippy rap.

The Rap World’s theme song should be something like Eazy’s Boyz in the Hood, or Dre’s D.R.E.. Not Akon. Dude sounds like an idiot anyways.

thanks for reading. :)

(303) Lucas says:

In all honesty, I think that Biggie and Tupac are a bit over-rated. I’m more into Vinnie Paz, Immortal Techinque, or Eminem.

Top 10 Best Rap Artists:

1.Big L
(If you dont know who he is, then you’re opinion is completly void)Listen to: Put It On

2.Nas
(Put together one of the best albums ever)
Listen to: Halftime

3.Common
(Unique lyrics that aren’t so predictable)Listen to: Resurrection

4.Kool G Rap
(Best mafioso rapper ever)Listen to: Streets Of New York

5.Rakim
(Not my favorite lyricist, but there’s no doubting his influence)Listen to: Paid in Full

6.MF DOOM
(Unique style, with memorable beats and lyrics)Listen to: Vomit Spit

7.KRS-One
(Again not my favorite, but influencial none the less) Listen to: mc’s act like they don’t know

8.Big Daddy Kane
(Some of the best rap songs of the late 80′s early 90′s)Listen to: Ain’t No Half Steppin

9.Jay-Z
(His debut album was one of the best of all time)Listen to: I Can’t Get With That

10.Ol’Dirty Bastard
(His style was ‘different’, but he made some great songs)Listen to: No More(unreleased)

WHAT NO TUPAC!NO BIGGIE!? YOUR LIST IS TERRIBLE!

No it’s not. The artists on my list didn’t get their own movies, and didn’t get all the press coverage that Tupac and Big did. Not that Pac and Big are bad, they’re just extremely overated. I’m sure no one will give any other artist a chance because they think that they think they already found the best. Listen to those songs with an open mind, because I think some of those artists are a bit of an acquired taste. But they are better lyricists once you sit back and listen

July 8, 2009 at 6:29 pm
(305) YouDumba$$es says:

TUPAC IS THE BEST OF ALL TIME AND ANYONE WHO THINKS DIFFERENTLY IS JUS A HATERRRR. MAYBE YOU CAN GET AWAY WIT SAYIN BIGGIE, JAYZ OR EM IS BUT OTHER THAN THAT RELAX YOURSELVES AND LISTEN TO LYRICS. AND AS FOR EMINEM, NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE BUT LIKE SOMEONE SED EARLIER, HES ONLY HATED ON BY BLACK PEOPLE CAUSE HES WHITE AND MOST ARE ARROGANT N THINK RAP IS ABOUT SKIN COLOR.ITS ABOUT LYRICAL TALENT!!!!! AND EMINEM HAS MORE THAN ANYONE ALIVE.

July 8, 2009 at 6:31 pm
(306) YouDumba$$es says:

AS LUCAS SED, IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE IS ALSO ONE OF THE BEST, AND IF YOU HAVENT HEARD OF HIM OR DONT RESPECT HIS MUSIC THAN WHO ARE YOU TO SPEAK ON RAP ANYWAY????

Tupac, well, I’ll have some of his songs in my top 10, but as far as rappers go, he’ll be in my top 20. Deylaaf@gmail.com for feedback/comebacks/haters. Soulja Boy > Kanye west.

(319) Curtis says:

You all forget so easily. When you mention rappers, you do so based on how recently you encountered them. This is only natural. And that is why some may say Maradona is greater than Pele! So, I can comfortably say CURTIS BLOW is the Rapper of all Time because he brought rap to lime light. That makes him King of Rap. What about Mc Hammer? Another argument can be made by using the number of records sold and chart positions, though. For example Micheal Jackson is King of Pop because of records sold and how many time his tracks rose to e.g No, 1 position. These to me is more real.

Big pun – still not a player….wtf are you thinking!?!? LL cool jay is retarded as is biz markie aka one hit wonder, omg! D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the sell out will smith (fresh prince) lmao, dude wtf were you smoking when you made this list? give me some. lauren hill………wow Naughty by Nature…lol no comment and you got U.G.K. – Ridin Dirty at number 52 when clearly One Day is the best song on that whole album and it aint even on the list!!!! Run D.M.C. and Aerosmith???? – sorry it may have been ground breaking stuff when you was a kid but face it , the song is garbage dog for real. outcast – ms jackson….ROTFL. Craig mack sucks, westside connection sucks, Curtis Blow blows – really. The Pharcyde – Passing me by at number 22???? are you out of your mind?? you list is way off the mark and your top ten has more has beens in it than Sober House. I can’t believe you think these are the greatest rap songs, you couldn’t have been more wrong.

1.Rakim (Best lyrics and flow in rap history, GOD MC!)
2.2pac (lyrics had a lot of meaning, almost like a poet)
3.NaS (Illmatic is definetely the best album)
4.KRS-One (The Teacha!)
5.Notorious BIG (the best freestylist apart from Rakim of course)

9.Jay Z (often overrated in my opinion but reasonable doubt is jus a classic)
10.GZA (best rapper from the best rap group)
11.Kool G Rap (i find that he influenced a lot of rappers’ lyrics and styles, such as Biggie)
12.Chuck D (him and the rest of public enemey changed hip-hop)
13.Slick Rick (great story-teller)
14.Common (“I used to love H.E.R.” definetly one of the best rap songs)
15.Big Pun (similar to biggie but not nearly as good)
16.Eminem (unique but still very good, particularly in his first two albums)
17.Jeru the damaja (real hip-hop)
18.Black thought (real hip-hop again)
19.Q-tip (and again more real hip-hop. ATCQ are so good mainly cus of this genious)

i agree about immortal technique “dancin with the devil” is the most hardcore song in rap history but i still think 2pac is the best ever he made rap the greatest music ever, dancin with the devil gives me chills when i hear it

NO.1 Tupac (his music influenced the whole industry)
No.2 Immortal(the realist and great freestyle)
No.3 Nas (illicit was great and his lyrics)
No.4 Biggie Smalls (good freestyle)
No.5 Rakim
No.6 Ice Cube (today was a good day)

I don’t really agree with this list at all. There are a lot of songs missing, and a lot of songs that shouldn’t be there…for example: should be there, Outkast Aquemini, way more 2pac, better Biggie songs…and Im not talking about that MTV Puff Daddy bulljive, Im talkin about songs like Ni**az Bleed…listen to the lyrics of that song, same thing with Aquemini, AND Get up, Get Out from Southernplayali….No Goodie Mob songs?…Eminem’s Til’ I Collapse and When the Music Stops…where are they?

But music is a funny thing…everybodies ears hear things different. It’s all an opinion.

September 27, 2009 at 5:50 pm
(343) Malik says:

I can’t belive some of ya’ll have Eazy-E and Dr. Dre on there. Ice Cube wrote most of NWA’s stuff, so neither of them should be on there. Dr. Dre is arguably the best hip-hop producer ever, but he is not a top 10 MC. Here’s my top 10 (in no particular order)
Nas
Rakim
Tupac
Biggie
KRS-One
Jay-Z
Andre 3000 (or OutKast)
Ice Cube
Eminem
Kool G Rap
Also, Scarface can make a name for himself to be on this list. No respect for the South on alot of these lists. OutKast make’s more meaningful stuff than most the people ya’ll mentioned. Listen to their first 3 Albums, and you’ll see what I’m sayin’

And Note:
Lil Wayne (Note, I’m not a Lil Wayne Fan, but he is good. Most of ya’ll don’t have Lil Wayne in your
top 10 because ya’ll just don’t like him…)
Let’s be unbiased critics here……

(346) RL says:

If there is an argument of who’s the best rapper. Pac and Biggie will always come up as 1st and 2nd. But i thought this was a forum for best rap SONG!! Now what constitutes best rap song can be debated. Which made most impact vs which lyrically stands the trials of time. Undoubtedly Rapper’s Delight would have to be near to one because it was made rap come to the forefront based on impact it made. But if i was to argue for best rap song just based on lyrics and the consistency throughout the entire song it would have to be Dream Shatterer by Big Pun. The flow, lyrics, metaphors and wordplay are far superior to any single Pac or Biggie song. And unlike some of the older rapper, (i.e. Rakim or KRS-1) his flow, in this particular song, still matches and outdoes any lyrical prowess of the some new generation rappers. I think Eminem, Lil Wayne, T.I. and Ludacris have amazing wordplay that obviously is better than older cats because people always aim to improve and outdo the people that came before them. If rappers didn’t try to improve we would still be listening to the same stuff we have since the beginning.Wordplay, sound, and delivery has improved, maybe not message. The flow that new gen rappers have is faster and more complex than older cats. But Dream Shatterer goes harder and consistently throughout the whole song, than any other song out there , new or old. So if you need a more updated sound this really enjoy and old rap song listen to the Endangered Species version. I’m not going to say Big Pun was the best rapper out there because to be honest his most memorable songs were commercial. As opposed as Nas who most memorable songs were If i World the World or One Mic, for example. But again based on on flow, lyrics and wordplay Dream Shattterer destroys the competition.

I’m reading some of these comments…why are so many ppl so upset? This is Henry’s opinion! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Don’t be rude just because someone doesn’t agree with u. And for u ppl saying he doesn’t understand hip-hop, go to any other blog u won’t find anyone who knows half as much as him. I think he’s doing a great job and he gives really good reviews. Anyway if u don’t like his list then I guess u should make ur own.

Oh and whoever puts Eazy-E in their top 10 doesn’t know much about him. He may be a good rapper but he didn’t write his own lyrics. I believe it was Ice Cube and MC Ren who wrote them. So if ur gonna put Eazy-E in ur top 10 u might as well put Dr. Dre and Diddy since they all have ghostwriters.

C’mon fools, you really wanna know who the numba one rapper is? EAZY-E. he changed the face of rap. he changed everything. he is the father of gangsta rap and fought with the feds and pigs when they tried to keep him from speaking out. he fought for his freedom of speech and won. he is truly the number one rapper ever. hunter 559 has it right…. he came out with some of the sickest beats including creep and crawl, no more ?’s, real muthaphukking G’s, 8 ball, eazy-duz-it. and many more. he truly is the best rapper ever.

(375) Shabash Morton says:

Obviously, everyone has his/her own opinion regarding the Top 100 Rap Songs. In fact, people tend to disagree on what is songs would be considered hip hop. Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, Jay-Z, GMF&F5, Run DMC, and Eric B & Rakim are some of the top hip hop artists of all time. This list was scribbled in 2006, and as we all can admit, there are some top rap/hip-hop tracks that dropped during the past 3 years.

(381) RealHipHop94 says:

Some Of these Lists Are A Joke, i saw about 30 with basically all of Gunit taking up the top 10, about 40 without nas or jay-z and some even without biggie and pac? thats a discrace. heres my list, take it or leave it, its real hip hop. and to me there aint no best. a group of 12 of the best rappers ever in no order.

Biggie,Pac,Nas,Jayz,Snoop Dogg,Eazy E,Ice Cube,Eminem,Raekwon,Rakim,Krs One,Chuck D.

Honorable Mentions: Dr.Dre, The Game, Ludacris, 50cent,MC Ren, Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, Queen Lahtifa, Tech N9ne, Immortal Tech,AZ,Ghostface Killah,Marley Marl,Andre 3000.- they arent good enough to be honoured as the best but there definately all talented and keep real hip hop alive.

Best Groups: Nwa, Mobb Deep, Eric B& Rakim, Wu-tang Clan, Public Enemy, Junior Mafia, Gangstarr,Run DMC, Boggie Down Productions.

When You do lists, you cant really compare groups like Wu-tang and Nwa With a single rapper Like Big Or Pac. they should be in sepearate lists but equally responsible for being real hip hop.

and for those wondering why Dr.Dre Isnt in My first list is because dre is a studio gangsta and he really doesnt write most of his songs and thats a proven fact, his new album detox he even said he has people like luda and eminem ghost writing for him. dr is defintaly hip hop but when it comes to rapping i dont put him in my top cuz he doesnt even write the songs, anyone can be a rapper if they have the greats writing your lyrics.no doubt though he helped bring people like em, 50 and the game up to the lime light, props for that. anywayzzz keep it real.

January 20, 2010 at 7:22 pm
(382) RealHipHop94 says:

My Bad, I left out Lupe Fiasco, Big Daddy Kane, Big L and Big Pun From the list. they are definately Honourable Mentions, To some of the guys saying hip hop is dead, i agreee as well. theres few out there still keeping it real.

January 20, 2010 at 7:39 pm

3. 2 Pac – Nice, but lacked lyrical tallents for rhyming with different words

4. Eminem – Freestyle King

5. Cormega – Almost like a softer biggie or nas

6. Gang Starr – Dope

7. Jadakiss – Impeckable lyricist

8. Lil Wayne – Not a big fan, but he belongs in top 10

9. Jay-Z – He has done all an artist can do

If anything there needs to be more NWA, I dont care what any of you think, without NWA rap would be alot different, NWA is number one hands down. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC REN, and Eazy are 4 of the best rappers ever. This list needs more NWA songs, and more Ice Cube, Snoop, Dre, Eazy, Ren, and Tupac. Lets not forget about Dre Dog either (Nicky is better than any east coast rapper)

After reading a bunch of these comments all I have is a few things to say. One, everyone has their own opinion of who is the best rapper and who has the best song. All of this can be determined by where you live, how you feel or who influences you. I rap and too me..im just thankful for majority of these rappers who invented the rap game and have brought it to where it is today. Now I just have to point out alot of mainstream is wack and i wish some real artists could make the radio instead of this booty shaking music that they play. The idea of hip hop today is water downed by this radio music. And for the record my #1 rapper is Rakim due to his wide variety of lyrics and originality. But I also could never declare one of his songs #1….And thats all….Inferno Stacks..out…

I would say 2pac best of all times, then others can fall behind in any order. The reason why I picked 2pac because he wasn’t just classified as a good rapper but as a great leader, his music will live forever cause he showed true emotion. His song can be related to anybody white, black, Jew, just pretty much anybody. Now if you name a rapper that do that or have done that, then i would second guess myself.

(427) TheLegendaryOne says:

OMG!!! There are sooooo many rappers being left out of EVERYONE’S list… truthfully there is no best rapper bcuz there are too many different styles of rap to just put 1 rapper at number 1 or to make a top 10 for that matter… I didn’t see not 1 person put Busta Rhymes on the list. Or like one person said Immortal Technique. Or how about Twista, OutKast, Goodie Mob, 3 6 Mafia, E-40, Crucial Conflict, Mystikal, Bone-Thugs-In-Harmony, Juvenile, Beanie Sigel, J Millz, even the guys who used to rap with Tupac were great, I could go on and on, I am a music mogul, I love music and everyones style of rap and the things they rap about are different.. rap has too many categories to say only 1 is the best if you really think about it, I’m just being realistic!

there’s no such thing as the “best” rapper ever, you can only have your favorite rapper. if eazy e happens to be your favorite rapper then, for you, he’s the best rapper ever. if biggie is your favorite then, for you, he’s the best. its all about your own personal perspective. the only thing that matters is how much you like their music. there is nothing else that constitutes being the best.

May 14, 2010 at 9:28 pm
(433) bloo says:

listen all those rappers are nice but rap means speak freely, only one rapper has bridge a gap between battle and music and that is canibus, you know the one who turned ll cool j into a actor, eminem is his next target, the white boy is fire but he is a battler only in movies, last rapper on the 8mile looks like canibus and comes from a educated background just like him, we forgot about what makes anybody the best in there field, and thats doing the job better than them, canibus has destroyed every rapper he has come across and there is plenty that want a piece of him, listen to aids is gold and hiv is platinum and you will see what the best song sounds like.
its not about what makes you dance thats the producers beat making you move, lyrics you feel and must relate to, em never battled nobody, benzino is not a rapper and jarule sang for the girls, canibus destroyed careers of big name artist and most likly yours, you can not say your the best boxer without jumping in the ring and taking the victory, canibus has done that em never, big pun is another hard lyricist, listen to the artist not the beats, if beats is what makes your favorite rapper your favorite rapper then listen to techno it only has beats, you mite like that.
only true hip hop heads know the talent.
canibus
pun
redman
biggie
pac
blackstar
wutang
gangstar
and my list is endless but accurate.
hip hop lives in me i love it.

2.Nas – listen to it ain’t hard to tell (amazing lyracist shown in songs such as the message)
3. Biggie – listen to things done changed or who shot ya? (amazing yet very overrated, however if he were alive rap would not be what it is today)
4.2Pac – listen to wonder if heaven’s got a ghetto (the obvious no 1 spot for most, I love his music but I believe there are better artists)
5.Jay-Z – listen to dead presidents (rapper with the most number ones and not a sell out, undoubtably awsome)
6.Rakim – listen to paid in full (considered the god of rap, I think he’s ok to be honest I’d rather listen to some nas than rakim)
7.Big Pun – listen to duper lyrical (ashame his weight killed him, incredible lyracist and could spit some amazing tracks)
8.Ice Cube – listen to today was a good day (brilliant rapper, my favorite rapper from NWA released some timeless tunes)
9.Eminem – listen to till I collapse (hate him or love him he has sung some of the best songs in rap, his talent can’t be knocked and is the best freestyler alive)
10.Snoop Dogg – listen to gangbangn’ 101 (one of the very best from the west coast)

it very hard making this list other notible rappers are: common, all of wu-tang, eazy-e, immortal technique, KRS-One, Tech N9ne, Nate dogg. I also like some stuff by the game and WC

(456) Austin says:

Look, I hate to be one of those people who has to bring his problems with a subjective list to attention, but “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” by Nas, off Illmatic, has to be on any list. The flow Nas had in that song; I’m telling you, nobody can rhyme like that anymore. Especially not the self proclaimed “Best Rapper Alive.” That beat, though, that’s the best part. It puts you in a trance; you can’t do anything but nod your head and appreciate the lyrical and auditory brilliance Nas and Co. orchestrated in those three and a half minutes. It Ain’t Hard to Tell, gotta be top 10.

August 22, 2010 at 1:53 am
(457) Andy says:

Good list, all these people that r saying that you need more Pac are getting annoying. It seems there is a big group of people bent on saying 2Pac’s the best and he’s become the consensus. Now people just assume he’s the best and buy all of his songs without ever really listening to other artists. I used to be just like this but then I delved deeper into the hip-hop genre my faves are now Nas and Rakim.
Nice pick for no. 1, but I’m sick of everybody putting songs like The Message and Rapper’s Delight at the top just because they were early. Sure they were influential but they really weren’t that good of rap songs. Love the World is Yours by Nas its my fave.

Hi all

I’m searching for the artist of a particular hiphop/rap track that’s been bugging me for ages. It came out in the 90′s but for the life of me I can’t remember who the artist was. The chorus (and some parts of the 2nd verse) went something like this:

[CHORUS]

“This one’s for you / And only you / And all the funky little things that you do / This one’s for you / And only you / That’s why I dedicate this jam to you

[RAP]

Hello miss missus / It’s your boo (?) kisses / Or would you need some (?) / Or would just miss some / And leave me hanging in limbo / I don’t see a reason I assume that you are single / Well if you are (yeah) / My telephone number / So baby keep / And when you need me call me up / Coz when you get lonely / I’ll be your one and only / I’ll love you down / Like the yellow pages / I’ll let my fingers do the working out / Don’t stop / Ooh baby ’til I hit the spot… ”

These cats came out in S.A round about the same time that Shinehead’s “Try my love” came out. My older brother had both (as well as a number of tracks) on his cassette tape.

PLEASE HELP A SISTER OUT!! ANYONE?

Many thanks!

(476) NAhhhh says:

Your list of best rappers is garbage if you dont have Jay Z at number one, none of your lists have any female, and also if you think Big L with one or two albums, same goes for BIG are the best, face facts, both died at their peak, in most cases, first album and second album are the best, the classics etc.

If you want to look at BIG, Big L or NAs and compare them to Jay Z, well take Jay’s 1st album and his 2nd, then look at them against each other, only time someone says NAs is best, they refer to Illmatic, come on, move on, illmatic was ages ago, same as Reasonable Doubt and Life after death and whatever Big L put out… well Tupac, he has more albums, for me I can treat him like I do Jay Z, although his fame came with his death, thus his albums started selling.

Your Rakim, KRS One etc are great as well, I respect that. their influence is there and will always remain.

in 5yrs people will be saying Proof is the greatest of all time after Eminem releases an album he was supposedly working on and he had good rhymes… same as in 2020 kids will be saying Soulja Boy is the greatest of all time and say Kiss me thru the phone is the best song ever in rap history, then they will go on to mention Wale and Wacka Wacka dude and some of the others.

If Jay Z aint your number one, your lis is garbage,Nas’s relevance is because of Jay Z, Eminem’s relevancy is cause of Jay Z, and no Eminem didnt kill him on Renegade, Nas said it during a beef and you all ran with it” Do you listen to music or you just skim through it?”

December 7, 2010 at 6:04 am
(477) Nahh says:

And how do you have a top 100 of rap songs and dont have Hard Knock Life, You must love me, Lucky me, Song cry, Anything, Through the wire, Changes, Life goes on, More money more problems, and many other songs by Jay Z, Pac and Big should be on your list dawg, no disrespect but change it…

December 10, 2010 at 9:43 am
(478) Chris says:

Not in any particulary order But 2pac will always be No.1 for mehe was the best conscious rapper, yes he had better but hislyrics were more straight to the point, he had emotion in his voice, you could really tell if he was angry, upset, deepest rapper to come onto the earth, He managed to do over 1000 songs before dying at age 25, he had a legacy already most start at 25 and over, he was easily the best rapper

anyways heres my list of best rappers ever ( NO ORDER)

Ayyo this is my top 10 artists, I don’t care what none of y’all say this is what I think

1. Nas – lyrically the best I’ve heard. And of course it’s easy to talk about Illmatic… And it’s my favourite album, but he still puts out joints I love so there’s no argument

2. Big L – died young… He was gonna blow… We didn’t hear his best, but stick on some devil’s son, put it on or danger zone, and you can feel the realness

3. Biggie – brilliant lyricist again… Legend of the east

4. Pac – love Pac’s music, I do agree he was overrated but he is still undoubtably one of the greats… And there are songs by him like bury me a g that are overlooked but are great

5. Big pun – shame his size killed him, great voice and could run with a song like no other… Brilliant artist

6. Ice cube – classic westcoast joints like it was a good day show how good he was, my personal favourite from NWA

7. Immortal Technique – one of the best out at the moment… Hip-hop has died, and when I hear tunes from guys like immortal and celph titled, I believe the golden days may return one day

8. Rakim – I must be honest I wasn’t that into rakim when I first heard him but I am listening to more of his stuff and I do think he is good undoubtably.

9. Jay-Z – most successful solo artist ever, and when you listen to classics from reasonable doubt it is clear he is a brilliant artist, and as he has progressed I have been happy with the level of his music, from big pimpin to on to the next one

10. Eminem – it’s hard to rank these artists because when you look at the list there are so many missed like those from wu-tang, Mobb deep, snoop, redman, krs-one etc. However, Eminem is a great I believe he should be in the top 10 so here he is.

Oh and to NAhhhh… Get off Jay-z’s dick and listen to some more artists, plus nas destroyed him on ether and em destroyed him on renegade… And I thought that before nas said it.

One love

In this grand pattern of things you’ll secure a B+ with regard to effort. Exactly where you confused me was first in your facts. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate in this article. Having said that, allow me say to you just what exactly did give good results. The article (parts of it) can be rather persuasive which is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can easily notice the jumps in reason you make, I am not really sure of how you seem to unite the points which in turn help to make the final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your point however wish in the near future you actually link the dots much better.

Ok everybody, stop arguing over which rapper is indeed the best. Each person is effected by someones lyrics in a different way. I enjoy listening to Tupac the most because I believe thathe sang from his heart, he didn’t try to make himself sound different, he truly just spoke what was on his mind, and didn’t care what anybody else thought about him. Most people think he’s overrated just because they listened to All eyez on me album, listen to thug life, don killuminati: 7 day theory, not only these albums but he still has music coming out because throughout most of his days he was producing 3 songs a day.

Does jwm listen to rap at all….?????tupac, biggie,easy e are the three best rap acts of all time there’s no doubt….then you can start to throw some others after such as jay z,nas, big pun,odb, ice t , etc…but i feel you cant count the groups in the same light, jurassic 5, bone thugz, westside connection, NWA, naughty by nature, de la soul,cypress although amazing artists they are somewhat different from the soloists,…, Andre has the right idea the list in my opinion, all though does put some great acts on there, it misses out a host of unbelievable acts and does not give the respect deserved by these three rappers….to be honest by the time i got part of the way down the list, and the way its been put together, i half expected to see vanilla ice and TQ in the top 5 lol……

Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a
lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a
fair price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share.
Cheers!
