    forget about the best or the most consistent over the years, what are your personal favorite rappers DOA right now (if that makes sense)? The top ten rappers that give you goosebumps today?

    here goes my list
    1. Prime Young Thug (2014-2015)
    2. 00-03 Em
    3. ODB
    4. Denzel Curry (right f--king now)
    5. DOOM (timeless rapper)
    6. 05-08 Wayne
    7. Ghostface in pretty much every verse from '93 to '2000 lol
    8. Prime Boosie Badazz
    9. Danny Brown when he manages to find the good balance between raw energy, psychedelicness (?) and melodic rapping/singing
    10. 03 Greedo

    hm: rza, kanye between LR and mbdtf, prime slug, hungry 50 and current jpegmafia

    5. Andre 3K
    6. Ghostface
    7. Mos Def
    8. Young Thug
    9. Snoop Dogg

    In no real order apart from the first two:

    Jay and Wayne are the perennial top two.
    Kanye from College Dropout to Pablo.
    Ghost from 36 Chambers to Apollo Kids.
    Andre when he actually made music.
    Biggie when he was alive.
    Snoop predominately from his appearances on The Chronic up to when he left No Limit, but there isn’t really a Snoop era I don’t like.
    Future during the godly run from Monster to DS2 but again there’s not really a Future era I don’t like.
    YG from MKL to Still Brazy.
    Young Thug from Rich Gang to Slime Season 2.

    Kanye
    Wayne
    Cudi
    Kendrick
    Em
    Outkast (only counting as 1)
    Wiz
    Prime Lupe Fiasco
    Drake
    Chance

    only Kanye in order.

    I don’t think these are the best ten (11) rappers OAT or anything like that, but pretty much a lot of these rappers represent an era of my life or take me back to certain moments that I cherish, so yea. That’s more important to me than ranking them on some skill based numeric scale.

    Also probably forgetting a bunch.
