    While he may be the best, Kendrick is not even close to the top 3 most influential in the 2010s.

    I always wondered , isn't it just cool that u make fantastic music? Who gives a shit about influence?

    Obviously when it comes to icons or legends that is kinda important but 'best rappers' I don't see how thats relevant.

    Yeah I suppose I should have specified in OP whether we were listing objective or personal favourite lists - I think i’ve always just thought of my own list in the context of both, there’ll always be an element of bias no matter how objective you try be. @joeyp363 hit the nail on the head though.

    alright i’m late on this but Nelly is absolutely deserving of a spot. 50 too, even if it’s just off the strength of GRODT.

    I’ve always thought Danny’s brown has had a lot more influence than he’s given credit for.

    Yeah Em was - and still is, to some extent, a very good lyricist but to say the Goat is a stretch. He may have come very close back in the early 2000s but Em never reached the heights of Jay or Nas or Big. Or Ghostface or Doom or Andre.

    In terms of 2010s influence and impact, Kendrick and Future are neck and neck at this point imo. Both totally different approaches but equally effective. Honestly though, it’s probably Future, for the reasons @Big Cuntry already pointed out.

    I totally get it. I like to write the lyrics down on paper in pure bar format while listening to the integrity and structure of the vocals and examine they closely to make sure I don’t miss anything. Every once in a while something’s slips by me and I go, “no he didn’t just say that” then rewind it and go “nope he totally said it”

    I think its definitely reasonable to put Em in a greatest rappers of all time list. hate him or love him, he’s widely regarded as one of the greatest to ever do it. and there was that stage around 00-02 where he was genuinely in contention for best rapper alive.

    but THE goat is a stretch.

    ehhh I dunno, that's a bit of a stretch no? Nas' last two projects were very underwhelming, but Eminem put out an atrocious album (Revival) and then an album throwing a temper tantrum because nobody liked it lol

    it's kind of embarrassing for any Eminem fan, I think.

    This is literally a perfect list based on skill. Maybe not the exact order I would have it in but great!

    Life is Good shits on any Em album post TES but no matter how you describe Kamikaze, its more interesting than Nasir and LT2 imo.

    It’s all subjective based on what you prefer but there’s a shortlist of guys that it’s really hard to argue over and then there’s Jay who is the closest thing to objectively being the greatest ever and we conclude it in the thread every time someone posts this so

    Biggie is pound for pound the best when it comes to every attribute that goes into making a good rapper/artist and I will argue this forever with anyone

    Edit: and I ain’t saying pound for pound cause he fat either
