    The title speaks for itself. I personally think Eminem but I’m probably biased

    Well, everybody is biased, but if your fav rapper was yelawolf, drake or idk 90% of the rappers you wouldn't say they were the best... Obvious for me, it's Em since he has the biggest impact on me and i loved his s--- so much that i probably listened to him a lot more than any other rapper but every artist has a different vibe, taste. It's really hard to compare a legend like snoop to a legend like em.

    What exactly is 2pac's prime? I think Strictly 4 My Niggaz is his best album.

    With ability I meant to exclude the success of a rapper in his prime. So album sales, impact, popularity etc
