    Unless you're living under a rock you've probably seen this (horrendous) top 50 rappers oat list thats been causing untold misery all over twitter a week or 2 ago (and the wave of equally bad lists that followed)



    I tried to make my own list but its d--- near impossible to rank 50 rappers in a single list. Too many variables, too much s--- I havent heard, too much bias. BUT i think I did settle on a top 10.

    1. Jay-Z
    2. Andre 3000
    3. The Notorious B.I.G.
    4. Lil Wayne
    5. Nas
    6. MF DOOM
    7. Gucci Mane
    8. Ghostface Killah
    9. 2Pac
    10. Kanye West

    ... with an honorable mention of un-ordered 11-20ish:

    Ice Cube
    Black Thought
    Scarface
    E-40
    Kendrick Lamar
    Chief Keef
    Cam'ron
    Future
    Young Thug
    Big Boi

    thoughts? whats your list looking like in the year of our lord 2019? anyone got a full on top 50?

    Masters of the universe is like their only project as binary star. It is underground boom bap at its finest. Then their solo debuts (the name the motto the outcome and sonogram) are amazing.

    What im about to say is a scientific fact, not an opinion

    The Em icy/m i c scheme on ringer is something only Em can pull off. This is a fact. I listen to hip hop for wordplay and metaphor so you can bump ur head wondering if kiki is riding but Em will always be the greatest rapper of all time

    I like Senim Sillas solo the most out of them. That album is flawless and so unique.

    @Big Cuntry i will allow ppl to say they enjoy other rappers for different reasons. Such as sonically or whatever. But wordplay should be non-negotiable going forward
