JTTS Greatest 100 Greatest Rappers Of All Time – #97: DMX

As always, please keep in mind this list isn’t actually in any particular order.. but even still.. this is probably the first time since the 90s DMX has made a “Top Rapper” list. I understand the thrill in knocking this guy, he was never a lyrical powerhouse - but for a brief period in rap, DMX held the fucking crown.

Rap purists will debate his origins in hip hop; he was around for a while in early 90s, (I have his “Born Loser” record on vinyl).. but any true fan of DMX will tell you, his career really started in 1998. It was around this time I REALLY began to take notice of Dark Man X at my local barbershop / bootlegger. Talk ran rampant of his origins, “Yo I heard this dude was homeless for 10 years…”, and “Canibus vs. DMX” mix tapes were poppin’ up left and right. He murdered his verses on “24 Hours To Live” and “Money, Power, Respect”, and let’s face it.. you probably copped BOTH of his multi-platinum releases that year (It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood).

The DMX franchise grew rapidly with his music success reaching it’s peak with “And Then There was X” in 1999. Unfortunately for DMX, his star burned too brite, too fast and hollywood ultimately destroyed his “gangster” brand with a series of horrific movie roles (the Ice Cube syndrome). (Umm.. although I will say this, if he had shot the minister at the end of “Belly” instead of getting born again .. that movie would have been a certified classic piece of cinema).

DMX hasn’t really existed to me musically since 2000, aside from the occasional musical blip on my rap radar (Who We Be) he has flopped more times than a fish out of water. As a celebrity, my fascination with the man has once again grown to 1998 levels of excitement (no homo). He’s using crack now, has been arrested several (hundred) times in 2008 alone, and is serving jail time whylin’ out on C.O.s. Not to mention the fact that DMX is clearly batshit crazy, and more or less rap’s Amy Winehouse.

With all that said, DMX is a creative, eccentric, entertaining force, that why I put him on this list. Hate if you want but.. “YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS FROM ME BAYBEEEEE” .. Boomer! One Love N*gga!

    my list:

    1) 2Pac/Tupac
    2) Biggie Smalls/The Notorious B.I.G.
    3) Nas
    4) Big L
    5) Immortal Technique
    6) Slick Rick Da Ruler
    7) Eminem/Slim Shady
    8) Jadakiss
    9) Styles P
    10) DMX

    This is my opinon but there are many other great rappers. I think Jay-Z is not up to this kind of level, I mean DMX was backstage with Jay-Z and I think DMX is better than Jay-Z. Remember it’s not all about the sales but don’t get me wrong I think he’s in the top 15 and I just don’t see Jay-Z as top 10 best rappers of all-time in a place where you mention Biggie Smalls, Nas, Tupac. I mean Nas killed Jay-Z on the whole beef thing when he came out with Ether but Jay-Z is a rapper who always made hits and hip hop is not about the hits. He is a good rapper but in my eyes not enough to be in the top 10 not even top 5 he will never be top 5 it’s the truth people. I listen to almost every rapper from Old School to New School and rappers from the Old School Era are also one of the best like Scarface and the whole Geto Boys, Keith Murry (Pretty underated Rapper), Redman, Methodman, Erick Sermon, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, NWA, The D.O.C. and Dr. Dre, Kool Keith (Very unique talent and underated listen to the song Livin Astro’ by Kool Keith), AZ, Gangstarr, Big Pun, Shyheim, Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep but hey there are others also and Lil Wayne is not Top 5 either or top 10 Joe Budden is pretty underated also and Joell Ortiz is like the best spanish rapper I have heard since Big Pun and he reminds me a bit of Pun and hey guys listen to lyrics and there are good rappers now like Asher Roth even though he’s white there’s nothing wrong with that and Kid Cuid, Charles Hamilton, Big Sean and Blu which does many songs with Exile he is a underground rapper who is awesome but there are too many good rappers soo it would be hard to make a list I just made mines by thinking quickly

    how is this possible? i see all his prodigies on most lists and his name only twice? Dr. Dre should be number 1 on all lists. he isnt my favorite but he mad rap what it is. Also, nobody had GZA on their list. The man is a lyrical genius. Lil Wayne is on way too many lists on this. most of his songs are hip hop and not rap. And yes, there is a huge difference between the two

    This is not in any sort of order my top 6 is in an particular order Big Pun was one of the nicest mcs in the game that ever did it and he was vastly under rated the rest are based on lyrical content and tributes to the game Eminem is GOD to me but hes not dead so he can still make music
    this new age bulllshtit that isnt music they are not rappers this music kills more brain cells to make then listen to its sad the people i chose are lyrical gods and always had a message

    No disrespect, but some people need to hear more Hip Hop with these lists, though a lot if personal opinions and there’s some good lists here, but seen at least 15 that are straight whack and invalid and aren’t just opinion but incorrrect, here’s a very rough personal list, everything is prefernece but these are all elite artists…

    1: 2 Pac
    2: KRS-One
    3: K-Rino
    4: Nas
    5: Jay Z
    6: Biggie
    7: Big Pun
    8: Big Daddy Kane
    9: Rakim
    10: AZ

    Honourable mentions to Scarface, Big L, Common, Guru, Canibus, Bizzy Bone, Z-Ro, Wise Intelligent, Will Smith (for being so underrated and wrongly disrespected), Chino XL, Pharohe Monch, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Brother Ali, Fat Joe, Kool G Rap, Last Emperor, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah.

    And there are many other great MC’s also…. peace to everyone though and I advise those who haven’t heard many artists to check some of these ones out, and then there are many more, explore them and check out there songs/skills.

  112. uncle bo bo Says:

    These lists are so weird, there needs to be a criteria for evaluation for these. My criteria= no hip/hop, based on lyrical creativity and meaning. (Album Sales is also taken into consideration)
    1)Tupac
    2)Jayz
    3)Eminem
    4)Wu-Tang
    5)Nas
    6)Eazy-E
    7)Biggie
    8)Bone Thugs
    9)Common
    10)Scarface

  113. some people... Says:

    anyone here who put lil wayne on there list can leave and never again say something about rap. he makes hits, he has no lyrical creativity or originality whatsoever. hip hop isnt about bragging about your money and cars, its about sharing stories and expressing yourself.

    1. Pac (Hands Down)
    2. Em (A close second, lyrical genius)
    3. Immortal Technique
    4. Biggie
    5. Nas
    6. Wu-Tang (each member would crack my top 25 on their own)
    7. Bone Thugs
    8. Rakim
    9. Ice Cube
    10. Common

    Listen to syllables by eminem and dre. it describes what has happened to hip hop and why people like bailey put flo rida and asher roth on their list

  114. some people... Says:

    best current rappers:

    1. J Cole (he will be huge)
    2. Kid Cudi (weak 2nd album, but he is still sick)
    3. Eminem
    4. Macklemore (if you havent heard of him, look up otherside)
    5. T.I. (great flow)
    6. Jay-Z (not as good as he once was)
    7. Wiz Khalifah (Average Lyrics, great beats and pretty good flow)
    8. B.o.B. (sounds a lot like 3 stacks, and he is pretty upbeat and has great flow)
    9. Talib Kweli
    10. Lil Wayne (ya he sucks, but he sells millions of records and since money is all he cares about, he gets the job done)

    50 stopped making good rap, kanyes talent went away after 2 albums, snoops voice just bothers me, and every other rapper is just a one hit wonder

    I agree w/ Bailey

  124. poonmurker Says:

    too many people on here havent heard anything prior to 2000, seriously if you think that wayne is the pinnacle of hip hop, and the most intelligent and flawless wordsmith there ever was. Then i reccomend if you havent heard of some of these artists listen to them and quickly realise that wayne and all the new school rappers have completley lost sight of what hip hop is all about.

    1. Rakim (lyrical genius, with real subject matter)

    2. biggie (represents new york style perfectly, only em and big l can rival his freestyling ability)

    3. big l (maybe if L hadnt died he would have grown to number one as he kept getting bettter and better, very smart punchlines)

    4. nas (nuff said, great flow, versatile, a true veteran)

    5. public enemy (raw political lyrics, with hard old school beats, shame about flave)

    6. eminem (before relapse, he makes me laugh every time i listen, probably the most gifted lyricist of all time, wouldve made number one if it hadnt been for his recent commercialisation)

    7. big daddy kane (best punchlines in hip hop)

    8. pac (most powerfull and influential artist out there, touches hearts)

    9. jurassic five (cant believe they didnt make anyone elses top 20, perfect funky beats and back and forth rapping)

    10. immortal technique (should be in everyones list somewhere, real messages)

    11. kool g rap (hard hitting, loud and always on form)

    12. raekwon (easily the wu’s best rapper)

    13. krs-one (the teacher, if anyone knows hip hop its krs)

    14. big pun (best latino rapper, huge presence on the mic)

    15.gangstarr (again not on other lists wtf, every album has an amazing mix of all the best hip hop pioneers, plus premier is the best producer of all time)

    16. andre 3000 (hit and miss with outkast, but has the ability to spit complex lyrics at great speed while maintaining rhythm and flow)

    17. meth (second best wu member, original rhymes unique sound)

    18. snoop (may not be the most gifted lyricist, but has one of the smoothest flows in hip hop)

    19.jaru the damaja (similar to kool g,under appreciated)

    20.nwa (for ice cubes hard flow and dre’s flawless producing, easy e has his moments aswell)

    feel free to pick this list apart and tell me what you would have done differently, everyone is entitled to their own opinion)

  164. Brad Says:

    1. Andre – completely unique, amazingly talented, brilliant lyricist, and amazing longevity with outkast making 4 brilliant albums under his direction
    2. GZA – smartest rapper alive, most creative and impressive lyrics out of wu tang, although all are fantastic. strong career throughout, w. vital role on outkast shit, and the second best rap album of all time w/ liquid swords
    3. Nas – Not a great career, but making the best hip hop album of all time in illmatic automatically solidifies himself in my top 5
    4. Jay Z – Far and away the most successful rapper alive, and his success is built on a string of amazing albums, not just corporate savvy and pop songs. Probably closest to the beatles of hip hop
    5. Kanye West — it is wrong to negatively lump kanye in with lil wayne, drake, and other popular rappers. Sure, kanye is popular and mainstream, but his music isnt (other then 808′s). Its fantastic, and his success is a result of crafting 4 brilliant albums, and 1 annoying “experiment” that he shouldnt have tried.
    6. Rae & Ghost – Alone, i wouldnt put either of these guys at 6, but they comprise one fantastic portion of Wu tang and have had the most solo success.
    7. Big Boi – Single Handedly Proved how underrated he was with last years album. hes fantastic
    8. Notorious BIG – “Juicy”
    9. Big L – most amazing flow in all of rap. listen to “Put It On”

  165. Brad Says:

    I’m sorry but lil wayne sucks!! He doesn’t rap,he talks into a thing that makes his voice sound different. All he talks about is Sex, money and drugs. rap is about feeling something. its about life and letting sh*t out because most of the time its the only way you can.

    I for one am with Talumpies on this, “HE FUCKED UP RAP”

  177. RealRap Says:

    Lil Wayne doesn’t rap he talks, like alot of so called “rappers” like drake and ive got to admit eminem is going down that too sorry to say.

    There is no list its all opinions.

    The Rapper’s that made the biggest impact is by Tupac Shakur(2pac), Biggie Smalls, N.W.A, Nas. (There are some others but i dont feel the impact these rapper’s did) These are the people what made rap what it is today people! dont you see that or is it just me? If Tupac and Biggie was still alive you wouldnt hear off Lil wayne all all these other pop artists!

    Tupac and biggie’s lyrics are amazing if you listen to them!

    Modern day rapper’s (My opinion there pop artist’s) just trying to get to number 1.

    Make rap what it was people! im trying.

  201. reel mc Says:

    Okay so mike and someone who studies hip hop are close to be honest you can’t rate the top ten they are all great at that point just different styles so here my list

    Rakim (father of rap allowed flow to come into rap made it possible for biggie pac jay-z… etc)
    Pac (put emotionalism into rap, rap legend and god like big, The West coast representative you can keep on going he’s really a given not to mention the best poet of all time in rap)
    Biggie (The east coast legend like pac a god of rap people really love this guy excellent mc and the best voice hip hop has ever had, which is why people that dont actually know rap say he is the best ever and its not even close, they are just retarded lol but definitely one of the best)
    Big L (no one on the west coast knows who he is at all its really quite sad seriously the most underrated mc of all time, good flow, played with words, straight raw and best punch lines i’ve ever heard also the best freestyle rapper ever)
    Big Pun (lots think he was the best ever, mad underrated for sure had great lyrics and flow definitely one of the best)
    jay-z (The perfecter of flow straight from rakim, hova’s flow is unmatched and one thing he’ll have on big and pac is that he is alive and had a way longer career)
    Eminem (unorthodox, one of the greatest lyricist ever also a great freestyle rapper one of the best off the dome rappers i’ve heard has his own style he gets it done and grew up with dre also he truly studies rap not many do that)
    Reggie (first eminem said he was the greatest, Charismatic, Outstanding delivery, great flow and above average wordplay, Redman is a legend in an otherwise watered down Hip Hop scene)
    Nas (he has covered more material in his first ten songs then most rappers do in their career, excellent really a true legend and had such grace as an mc)
    The last one is always the hardest and its so close but i gotta choose
    LL Cool J (one of the originals releasing 11 records of platinum and gold he doesn’t curse which is truly a beauty in its own)

  210. Pat Clifford Says:

    Ok if we are talking best lyricist of all time, then most of the lists on here are way more focused on popularity than actual raw talent. I have been listening to rap/hip-hop for 35 years now and I feel I’m pretty educated on this topic. Now that said everyone still has an opinion, and the right to have one. The following list is based on lyrical talent only:

    1) Eminem ( No one, and I mean no one has the lyrical skill/talent that Eminem has. Original to the point that his face defines the word. Infinite was probably the best example of his lyrical raw talent. No one puts words together like Eminem.)
    2) 2pac ( Enough said )
    3)Big L
    4)Rakim
    5)Easy E
    6)KRS 1
    7)50 Cent ( Unreal lyricist, He is the ultimate gangsta rapper and you can here it in his voice. He has really declined in the past 5 years but his presence is still heard.)
    8)Busta Rhymes
    9)Lil Wayne ( Yes Lil Wayne )
    10)Jadakiss

    6) TUPAC- dont like him but he was a boss rapper !
    7) B.O.B – yeah he's new but he is a boss producer, think he's similar to kanye !
    8) CYPRES HILL-they are boss, ther lyrics are crazyy !
    9) 50 CENT-he's good like .
    10) P.DIDDY-had some good songs out over the years!

    yeah i know i didnt include eminem or lil wayne ! tbh eminems songs all sound the same the either have that slow dpressing beat like in 'stan' or 'not affraid' or that fast funny beat like in 'with out me' or 'slim shady'. lil wayne just dosnt belopng up there you cant comper him to the likes of B.I.G ? so all yous sayin eminem is the best need to sit down in the coner an listen to real rap. yeah ? k ? bye ?

    10.Busta Rhymes

  253. Ej Says:

    Its a shame that lupe isn’t on more of these lists. I think that not only does he rap lyrically insane but his raps have a deep meaning to them. Id consider him more of a fast poet then an actual rapper.

    In NO particular order because all of them bring something to the table.

    Eminem
    Lupe
    Krazy
    Nas
    NWA in general
    BIG
    Tupac
    Tech N9ne
    Jigga
    Method Man
    DMX
    run DMC (because of the foundation they layed)
    Royce da 5’9
    Snoop
    Game
    Wayne (OLD wayne Hot Boyz carter I, II)
    SOME of Kanye (dislike him personally but most of his shit is good)
    geto Boyz

    I probebly left off someone really good but those are the first to come to mind. fuck wacka flockas fake ass rosco dash soulja boy gucci mane all those fake ass “gangsta” rappers and all almost anyone that has collaborated with DJ Khaleds fucking fat ass (save for the ones on this list) especially rick ross “the boss”. you used to be a prison guard. come on dog. Wonder how you’d live in prison if you actually had to do a bid. and plies? your real name is algernod. Id fake my name act hard carry a gun and pay people to be around me too if i was 5’4 115 pounds.

  254. Fayettenam Says:

    Top 5 rappers

    1. PAC

    2. Nas

    3. Em

    4. NWA

    5. Common

    Nuff said. In my eyes j. Cole is the best rapper but until he releases his debut album I can’t put him in this list. Lupe is soooooooo underrated. Him and Cole r the greatest lyricist of our generation. Wayne and drake are too mainstreamed and overrated. Not to mention drake does not even write his own lyrics. Kia shine writes all of drakes lyrics. There has been a lot of talk of a feud between j Cole and drake but if it came down to it Cole would rip drake to pieces. My number 6 rapper has to be Andre 3k/ OutKast.

  255. YUNG E Says:

    dis is ma final list dis is the truth like biggie in the booth naaa but dis is it
    1. Notorious B.I.G ( if u call him biggie smalls ur not a true fan of big, when u listened 2 big u felt u where standing next 2 him and hes prob the most realest rappers ever)
    2. Eminem/ slim shady ( the most unreal and talented lyricist who ever picked up a pen, hes a real rapper who isnt afraid 2 say wutever the fuck he wants he doesnt care about what people think and if this list was about lyrics em would win easily)
    3. Makeveli ( if u still call him pac ur again not a true fan and makeveli was probably and is the most popular and overrall liked rapper who ever lived he was an amazing lyricist and really was one of the best storry tellers)
    4. Jay-Z ( his lyrics are sick and raps about real shit prob the second best lyricist ever hes soo good and can relli rap about anything thats why hes so good he expands soo much)
    5. Lil Wayne ( i only like wayne from when he was writing thats it some good shit lately kinda but in the past year he can say anything and ppl will call it the illest line ever, he wuz good from the beginnig 2 carter 3 but after that all trash, exept a few songs all he has 2 do is sit down and write)

  256. nate Says:

    u guys r so stupid biggie smalls and 2 pac are the main ones not fuckin eminem

  257. chase Says:

  264. J Long Says:

    Lil Wayne is a joke, I cant believe he has made so many peoples lists. I can think of 100 rappers better than that clown.
    Also very surprised Sick Jacken hasnt been given a mention.
    Best all-round rapper (not necesserily best MC) of all time in my opinion is Nas.

  265. stephen Says:

    Here is a Legit List for once (most of these lists are so wack it’s not even funny)

    1. 2pac (Michael Jordan of Rap but cooler, same talent as biggie maybe but so many more tracks)
    2. Jay Z (Huge body of work but not talented as 2pac)
    3.Biggie (would be higher but only 2 albums)
    4 Eminem (accomplished more than any rapper since 2000)
    5 Rakim ( laid foundation for all the great rap stars to come with his innovative image, only 80s rap star who became a 90s style A+ rap star)
    6 Snoop Dogg (second greatest west coast rapper ever, no debate)
    7 Nas ( Great career, never reached top dog status in my opinion though)
    8 Lil Wayne (is there a hotter rapper today than lil wayne? he is so fire, and he’s been doin it since he was like 15 and he’s only 29!!!, this is the only guy on the list who could jump a few spots before he retires other than eminem maybe)
    9 KRS One (best rapper of the 80s, after that not so much)
    10 Ice Cube (best rapper of early 90s)

    Honorable Mention:

    LL COOL J (RAP ICON IN 80′s, 90′s and part of the 2000′s) Un-fucking-real longevity

    Woulda shoulda coulda:

    50 Cent- Was on top of the game for a while and honestly was not able to sustain his greatness.

  266. stephen Says:

    Oh and one more thing about RAKIM. Rakims great solo double album featured no other rappers. This guy put out one of the greatest albums ever totally solo “rakim the microphone solo wiz”. Who the fuck does that!!! what a player

  267. Jon Doucette Says:

    1. Notorious B.I.G
    2. Jay-Z
    3. Tupac

    Best rapper in 10 years – Tyler, the creator.

    P.S. Marshall Mathers is the greatest lyricist the world has ever seen, and will ever see. His flow, story-telling, lyrics and attitude are unmatched in my opinion. there will never be a more misunderstood and unashamed man at the top of their genre/game. Fact. Why? name me another rapper who could release the song ‘Kim’ and not be ridiculed for the raw emotion. in the macho world that is the ‘rap game’, Eminem continues to write emotional, hard and dirty songs about his clearly distressing life yet also can rap purely for fun better than anyone.

    And just for the record, Lil Wayne is the worst rapper ever, if you can even call him a rapper.

    3)Tupac ( had the most meaning to his rap songs and teached people how to stay alive)
    4)N.W.A (FUCK THE POLICE there not afraid to express there feelings to any1)
    5)Biggie smalls (the best flow in the rap industry and had beef wiv 2pac)
    6)Ice cube (also had a very good diss to N.W.A and has been loyal to the game since he has been rapping but now makes disney movies)
    7)Big l (also had a good flow in rap)
    8)Dr Dre (a very good rapper and was the fouder of deathrow records
    9)Lil Wayne ( most people hate him but evan tho he raps about being rich i still think the lyrics he makes are awesome and keeping rap alive and the best spitting today)

  290. Jason Says:

    Nas is th best rapper ever. If you don’t agree go listen to illmatic (new york state of mind, the world is yours, it aint hard to tell, etc.) best rap album ever made. And if you think Nas can’t go up against people just go listen to ether and how he absolutely kills Jay-Z. Big and Pac are a close 2nd but I don’t have a doubt that Nas is the best, his flow and meaningful lyrics are unmatched. Nas speaks the truth!

    FUCK LIL WAYNE AND ALL THOSE YOUNG MONEY/CASH MONEY FUCKERS….
    FUCK THEM

  307. JOH Says:

    For the top 3, I can’t choose which one should be there.

    1.2.3.: Biggie Smalls, Nas, Tupac. I won’t put them in order, they all have amazing skills as Biggie had best flow, Nas had best lyrics, and tupac had best beats and “pop”
    4. Ghostface Killah, one of the founding fathers of hip hop.
    5. Raekwon (I think people are forgetting Wu Tang)
    6. Members of NWA… you gotta admit, Straight Out of Compton and Fuck the Police? Priceless.

    Hmmm… that’s as far as I’ll go. I like others like old Em, Snoop, Immortal Technique, but they are not in the top 10. If it was top 20, it would be a different story.

    For all of you putting Lil Wayne in your list, go suck a choad cuz you don’t know what real hip hop is. “Real G’s move in silence like lasagna?” Are you fuckin shitting me? How is this guy the best? He’s been signed since he was a kid, he don’t fuckin know who real G’s are. And just cuz he got arrested, he’s now gonna act hardcore and shit. Just cuz you go to jail does not make you a G either. It just makes you a convicted man and nothing else. For instance, I can EASILY go to jail right now if I wanted to go crazy and kill people. Does that make me a G? hell no. Grow up among Queensbridge Militia or Brooklyn Bad Boys. Or West Coast Death Row. THESE motherfuckers are G. Lil Wayne thinks he’s G because he’s got a million tattoos and shit. First of all, once all these hip hop artists get big and get rich, they no longer are G’s. They aren’t talking about how G they are, they are telling the story of their lives and what it used to be. Meanwhile you got a soft ass nigga like Wheezy sayin he triple OG and shit. Without his fuckin bodyguards, I can easily kick his pansy ass. Actually, let his bodyguards come. Teach him not to fuck with real “G’s” strugglin in this world, trying to make ends meet, getting shot up for tryin to feed ya family or kids, defending your home and ur territory from turf warmongering niggas. THATS G. You’re not a G cuz you say A Milli 2000 times. Get that soft ass punk outta here… he’s a fuckin midget and every girl he fucks are taller than him except the underaged ones.

  317. Jackie Says:

    I know every one has their own opinion…Blah blah blah. But if you seriously put 2 Pac and Lil Wayne in the same category then you are the reason the world is fucked up. No way does Lil Wayne deserve a top spot. He barely writes his own shit and has to be on everyone elses track to make more money. FAIL.

    My list:

    1. 2 Pac (Lyrics and flow are the best)
    2. Eminem (come on he is the BEST white rapper, who doesn’t give a fuck if you like you em or not)
    3. Tech N9ne (Fucking Genius! Best Underground) Eminem and Tech can change their voice, smooth, fast, offend you, inspire you, and they both can sing to change it up. FUCKING AMAZING! To me that is the definition of the Greatest Rapper.
    4. B I G – not a huge fan but he deserves to be on top. If you still hear songs after their dead, they gotta be one of the best.
    They should always be in the top 5.
    I hope Tech (and all the Strange Music) becomes more famous like he deserves but he choose not to. He doesn’t want to be sucked into the industry and he has gotten where he is by himself!!
    I’m not gonna get into it but the ones who make one song and disappear don’t deserve shit. The ones who have been around and stayed around deserve it all. Who ever put Sir Mix A lot is a dumbass.
    Jay z, Twista, 50 cent, Pitbull (Spanish and English, who else does that!) Mos Def, Common, Bone thugz, Nas should all be in the top 20 along with some others. (not in that order) And Best Female Rapper: Nicki Minaj blows all them girls outta the water. Her flow is better than a lot of the males. If she makes better songs each album she puts out I’d put her on the male list with Tech and Em.

    Anyone who doesnt have 2pac, biggie, and nas in at least the top 5 is just a dumb person. Either a die-hard fan or an idiot. Eminem is amazing, but he’s not Biggie Smalls. You have to have NWA and Wu Tang up there and TechNyne, Krayzie Bone, Easy E, Rakim, Raekwon, etc. Luda>TI>Lil Wayne and thats a goddamn fact. Still, there are other good people but dont make a list like:

    HOW STUPID CAN YOU GUYS BE!!!! The best rapper of all time is K-Rino, and no one has him on ANY of the lists. And why do so many people have Lil’ Wayne on their lists, HE SUCKS

    My List
    1) K-Rino
    2) Lowkey
    3) Immortal Technique
    4) Tupac
    5) Tech N9ne
    I know some people dont know these rappers but, these ARE REAL RAPPERS, not phony clowns like Lil’ Wayne, Drake, T.I, and other dumb fucks you hear on the radio. I didn’t put Eminem on my list because personally i dont like him and he dont makes dumbass songs about popping pills and other dumb shit. Oh yeah and if you dont like my list listen to “Grand Deception” by K-Rino or “Fire In The Booth” by lowkey

  350. Hip-Hop Says:

    I love Hip-Hop and i do respect the “new” generation of rappers, but all you young boyz out there what you like is not the real Hip-Hop, it’s Hip-POP, Lil Wayne,T.I, Young Jeezy, T-pain etc is a new kind of Hip-Hop… Stay true to the real deal…

    1- 2pac/The Notorious B.I.G. ( 2 kings )

    All of yours suck.

  374. WEST SIDE.. and others Says:

    1. 2pac- because he is what defines west coast rap and has songs of every kind for every mood hes just a legend and there is not a single bad song by him
    2. NWA- made up of some the best rappers of all time Dr. Dre, Eazy, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and the DOC. Their songs are hilarious and fun to listen to
    3. Mobb Deep- a great NY rap duo, Had to put them on here for songs like Shook Ones part II, which is the only reason they need for #3
    4. Wu-Tang- One of the largest rap groups off all time with amazing member like Meth and Red, GZA, Ghostface, and ODB
    5. Nas- reminds me of an NY version of 2pac. he has lasted through the years and continues to try to keep rap alive
    6. Biggie- NY king, havent listened to him as much as the rest of the list, but he ranks higher than people ive listened to more because of songs like big poppa
    7. Big Daddy Kane- Old school rap and he inspired almost everyone on this list
    8. Eric B and Rakim- had some amazing beats and rakim raps like a boss
    9. Method Man and Redman- I know that theyt are part of wutang but they made so much great music on their own i have to mention them
    10. Snoop Dogg- He was just a great west coast rapper and another one who defines gangsta.. but he got bad in recent years

    I also love all the people on NWA but there wasnt enough spots to include all of them

    Fuck anyone who says Lil Wayne in the list. He eats dick for a midmorning snack. and dont try saying hes just part of this generation because im 14 and do you see a single rapper who started after 2000? no. because 90% of them are shit. RIP Rap.

    bailey ur clearly mentally challenged. You put FLO RIDA in front of notorious big. you should probably kill urself for that
    nobody on this list knows anything.
    1. Big l (best punchlines and rhyming ability ever)
    2. GZA (best fucking word play ever…look up the lyrics to “Fame”)
    3. Atmosphere (Slug)…(best story telling ability and great intellectual lyrics)
    4. Eyedea (2nd best freestyler of all-time behind big l.)
    5. Eminem (his old music) (i dont think i need to explain why hes on here)
    6. Notorious BIG (once again..no need to explain)
    7. Outkast (their old music) (andre and big boi both have amazing flow)
    8. tupac (too many good songs to not put him on here)
    9. Murs (underrated underground rapper….did some good work in the group “Felt” with him and Slug
    10. Ol’ Dirty Bastard (cmon hes just too fucking unique to not include him)

  396. dan Says:

    oh and Dan i agree big l has not been mentioned enough his lyrics are insane
    ummm whoever puts lil wayne in their top 50 rappers should probably off themselves in a slow painful way
    i feel bad for everyone out there (99% of the population) who actually thinks lil wayne is good he doesnt even write his own lyrics he sounds like a fagget…go listen to his freestyle on the tim westwood show…it made me want to throw up and then punch him in the face
    it was absolutely horrible
    i feel bad for all of you who have never heard of the underground greats like slug murs and eyedea ur really missing out
    and for all of you who dont have Big L in ur list you should probably go fucking listen to him right now and if u dont like it then well fuck you. For all of you who included “rappers” like the new boyz and mims and nicki fucking minaj (god damn i fucking hate her) and chris brown? hes not even a rapper and trey songz isnt either (not hating hes got a nice voice just isnt a rapper) and drake and big sean and people like that…ur all musically oblivious fucktards….hip hop is supposed to be an art form and alot of ur top ten mainstream artists are actually ruining hip hop.

    MisterRob you are a smart man and i agree with you 100%
    oh and one more thing…if you have soulja boy on ur list and ur being serious about it…….fuck you.

    Hey lots of u made great choices and all but for Rappers of All Time we dont mean all this J. Cole or Drake shit. We mean old school shit like Biggie, 2Pac, Mac Dre, Snoop Dogg, Andre Nickatina, Run DMC, etc etc. Alright no new fucking shit just old school rap. in fact im okay with Mac Dre not in the top 20 or something but why the fuck isnt he on the list!! Yea he wasnt against Biggie or some shit but he never made fun of the East Bay. He was always sayin how sick the West coast was like and some of u east bay guys are gonna disagree but we all have our different music. For my List here it is:
    1.) Tupac
    2.) Mac Dre
    3.) Biggie
    4.) Andre Nickatina
    5.) Dr. Dre
    6.) Snoop Dogg
    7.) Mista Twista
    8.) Rakim
    9.)Easy E
    10.) Nas
    Thats My opinion but u guys can disagree all u want but im fine with my list. U guys can say shit all u want. I put Mac Dre cuz he is one of my favorite Rappers and i believe he should be on the list. “Too Hard, All Damn Day, California Livin’, and Love That Donkey” are M.Dre’s best hits. Listen to them when u have the time and comment what u think. He may not be as good as Biggie and Tupac but he still deserves to be on the list.

    I already posted on this site once, but I feel compelled to do so again.
    Not enough love for Tech N9ne. If you havent heard of him, I highly recommend looking him up. Seriously. If we’re talking most lyrical, he’s definitely up there.

  406. Hoffa Says:

    Im only going to rate on artists that I grew up listening to ( so since 94 – about 04) as anything after that is just garbage.

    1. Tupac

    3. Nas
    4. BIG
    5. Ice Cube
    6. Wu Tang ( especially Method man)
    7 Snoop
    8 Big Pun
    9 DMX
    10 Naughty By Nature ( Best Party anthems)

    Unlucky to miss out are Jadakiss, Bone Thugs, Dogg Pound and The Game.

  407. Steelow Says:

    Now I think some respect to the G’s the kept on bringin it and bringin it to that next level are in order.

    #1 Sugarhill Gang
    #2 Slick Rick
    #3 KRS-One
    #4 Chuck D
    #5 Too Short
    #6 NWA Cube/Eazy/Dre (ik its 3)
    #7 Phife Dawg
    #8 Busta Rhymes
    #9 Bone
    #10 Mac Dre

    There is no order. They are all great for what they did for the game. I could go on and on about lyrical innovation and all the folks I like and why. Pac’s lyrics came from his soul with real feeling from the pit of his very essence message. BIG is a remarkable lyricist that could keep the flow going. words out of thin air. There are so many. The Pharcide, Das Efx, Twista, Mac Mall, etc… T Pain does not have a place here. some of you white people crack me the fuck up and Im white. I thought this was of all time best rappers.

For the record PAC is the most OVERRATED EnCee to ever live and all of you sound like PURE bandwagon jumpers. Wayne SUX… Drake SUX… Flo-Rider or whatever his name is SUX… Your lists w/ exception of a couple SUCK and while I love Biggie he has not given me enough for an ALL-TIME list, nor have any of these teenage sperm drinkers on your lists… which SUCK. Oh and MONEY does not equal dope rapper… just most popular among you dick riding homos 50 Cent… the trash of trash rappers ALL TIME:

    I apologize to those with honest lists that I may have offended but if your favorite rapper has a video in regular rotation on MTV, he sux… Jigga it’s over, Em it’s over, 50 it has been over since you left the underground, Weezy, I believe it may have never really started, Drake… my gosh I am hanging my head in shame. I can’t believe what you fags are doing to my music. I lay claim because I am an original backspin kid… rocking WALKMAN’s backpacks loaded only with CASSETTES and a still dampened pair of each one your moms’ panties. Buncha radio slave media whore skull fukt pre-pimped sandy cok-in-da-bum bandwagon b!tches. These dudes that ar eyour favorites are clowning you all nightly while they spend YOUR money knowing they drop puke on wax and you clowns would put on floppy shoes and big red wigs to go and cop $hit… you don’t have to pay for it, it copmes out of your ass too… it’s free after meals.

    Here’s the gas, the rope, the match, the knife th efully loaded gun, the duct tape, the death punch, the bottle of pills, the fifth of Crazy Horse, the bag of grenades and my dick… you can suck that, you are probably too phukking stupid to figure out what to do with the rest.

    SeriouslyDunny thank you! Holy crap I cannot are so many idiots out there even having the nerve to consider losers like Lil Wayne or Soulja Boy as top 10s! How are people that oblivious to real hip hop?! To me there is no order. But there sure as hell are some rappers that are so unoriginal and lame that they don’t belong even in a top 100. Some examples are Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, etc. Pretty much any rapper nowadays that has lame, boring lyrics, no flow, and jumps on the bandwagon of “club” hits. Just because they sell a lot does NOT mean they even belong in a top 200 list! Talk about lyrical skill and those idiots I just mentioned are not even worth dissing.

    I totally agree with thehickerap. Just had an arguement with my step son (17) who thinks Lil Wayne is the best rapper to ever live. I am a 40 year old and have heard every rapper that influenced anything since Run DMC. I think for today’s kids Lil Wayne is the one they can identify with so they put him right up there, but these kids today have no respect for or understand the many great talents that layed the path for guys like Lil Wayne to exsist. A good rapper has many good qualities. Not just in lryics. He has a tone or smoothness to his style. He has good lryics but also has an ability to flow. Lil Wayne is very choppy and his voice is quite annoying. Drake is even better than Lil Wayne. At least he can sing too. The best rapper of all time is Tupac. He had everything. Heck the guy even released several albums from the grave. The kids need to get history lessons before they act like no one came before them, and becasue its all they have heard makes them #1.

    My list ( not the actual pecking order. keep that inmind, and they have reasons why which I will say as well )

    1. Rakim ( his flow an lyrics are phenomanal the 18th letter is one of my favorite albums of all genres)
    2. eminem ( despite what cunts say I’m going off overall so I include the SSLP an MMLP those albums really speak for themselves to why he’s at number 2)
    3. Biggie ( Id want to put biggie ahead and if he made more records I probably would but he was taken to early so I’m really going off 2 incredible studio albums)
    4. Nas ( nas probably is one of the most vicious with lyrics, illmatic is the best album in my opinion the only albums that come close to it is ready to die an the SSLP)
    5.Redman ( this dude is hands down my favorite artist. He had a sick flow and overall his lyrics were crazy and funny as fuck at the same time)
    6.tupac ( pac was the man he spoke from the heart and most of all he was never to big for anyone that had a heartbeat overall good fuckin person)
    7.tech n9ne ( his flow is Jaggered I can’t get over it when I first heard him he nearly gave me a blood nose)
    8. Immortal tech ( I like this dude so much coz he speaks up about shit that 1 people are to ‘big’ to talk about an 2 shit that most mainstreamers claim they care about but show zero initiative to help the cause)
    9.MC supernatural ( this guys freestyle battles are way to good. I don’t care what anyone says this guy IS THE BEST FREESTYLER EVER disagree prove me wrong)
    10. Jay-Z ( yeah I don’t care about conspiracy theorys about him being involed with killing pac I’m going off songs I like with flow rhyme schemes lyrics and chomp)
    11. Common (undeniable this guy has powerful lyrics and rhyme schemes BE showed that he is the king of Chicago)
    12.KRS-1 ( insane flow sick freestyler just A good MC all round to be honest I GOT NEXT keepin it real since release)
    13. Ice cube ( too gangster produced hip hop with some of the hardest shit it’s seen )
    14. T.I ( of course I had to put him in th top 15 a lot of mainstreamers get a taste an never look back hes stayed with it just glorified it abit nothin wrong with it as long you don’t go completely over board IE YMCAB )
    15. Jadakiss ( the last spot was tough I could do a list of 100 well deserved but these are the people that stick out the most for me. Jada had it all to me strong lyrics an even tougher wordplay and schemes. A sick rapper overall in my opinion)

    I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION THIS AGAIN THIS IS MY OPINION OF THE LIST I LEFT LIL WAYNE DRAKE AN SOUl JA BOY OFF IT SO YOU GUNTHERS SHOULD HAVE NO REASON TO HATE YOU LITTLE TIMID FAGGOTS. Dylan out

    3. Biggie

    Those three class upperclassily, if all three are not included on your lists i believe something is wrong, i’ve seen Lil Wayne over all of them on some lists, which i believe is wrong.
    I know it’s like being a fanboy to say Eminem is the G.O.A.T. But that son deserves it, i believe that Tupac and Biggie only “Unofficially beats him” on the Legacy.
    But then again it’s all Opinion.

  447. Reed Says:

    Really none of use know rap well the ones that dont put Tupac on top: this is real list:
    1. Tupac/2pac (Best Lyrics,style and of course this guy had the voice practually the only rapper that did, this guy had it all, yeah eminem has meant to have passed pac on the most albums sold but really comon guys tupac passed away 15 year ago and still is selling thousands is legacy is getting bigger and bigger by the day, but tupacs most albums sold was last checked in 2007 and where in 2012 now 5 years later you really think eminem has the most sold he hasent got a catting hells chance in ever catching pac up, tupac must of sold over 110/120 million albums worldwide now guarenteed!, think about it, theres meant to be 7 billion people in the world and three quarters of the people out of that 7 billion are tupac fans there know that hes the best, the other quarter are biggie, eminem and the other corny rappers that seem to steal pacs style and lyrics, he touched down on every topic, its said that tupac was that good he might of ran out of stuff to say, 2pac is that guy we get every 50/75 years, he was something different, to be honest i dont even know why im explaining all of this to use cause really he wernt a rapper he was a poet..a poet that created his own music genre! ( so yeah theres only one person on this list )!

  463. Bennyboy Says:

    My List top 10
    1. Eminem
    2. Tupac
    3. Biggie
    4. Jay-Z
    5. NAS
    6. Common
    7. Rakim
    8. Busta Rhymes
    9. 50 Cent
    10. Scarface
    Now listen before you get pissy, I think Eminem is the GOAT because he changed the way we view hiphop and will forever, so dd Tupac and Big but they weren’t around long enough to make the change em did. and Eminem will shred anybody you put on the table other than pac and big, and they passed, so he is top dog. and then of course pac and big, and then Jay-Z because of the business he has done, and I don’t think many can compare resume to resume to him, and of course Nas after him. After that Common, now listen common is a master lyricist and you can never deny that, his lyrics are incredible and he has a better flow than almost anyone, next Rakim, because he is a fucking lyrical beast and a legend. Busta Rhymes at 8, because busta spits fast as hell and is incredible with lyrics while spitting fast, 50 cent is one of the smartest business men ever to be in the game. Also one of the dopest MC’s. And Scarface is self explanitory. Honorable Mentions-Immortal Tech, Tech N9ne, Wayne, andre, dre, snoop, eazy e, big l. I forgot who else i was putting but EMINEM IS THE BEST ALIVE. If tupac and big were alive they would all be in a 3 way tie, disagree if you like, but I know my music better than most, and this is spot on. Whens the last time you saw someone truly go at Em besides Nick Cannon or ICP. haha which didnt do shit, no one has because he cannot be touched.

  464. rob Says:

    tupac should always be at the top of the list no matter what you prefer personally you should put aside personal views and base it on the music, how many other rappers do you know who have had songs put into the National Recording Registry for their cultural significance or have course’s being taught about them at harvard.

  465. Voltah Says:

    Anyone with asher roth on their list and those who do not have big l, are obviously fuckin retarded.

  466. eric Says:

    Couldn’t agree more Rob. So many rappers in these lists are no doubt very talented, but I can’t think of any other rapper who contained so many elements in their rhymes the way Pac did. Not to mention he was only in the rap game for 8 years. His lyrics were so poetic and contained real messages. Biggie had great flow and put out some very unique and talented lyrics, but many of his rhymes were lies, made stories of his youth, or stories of an alter ego. Tupac spoke the truth 24/7 and didn’t care what others thought, he just wanted to get out his message and wanted to hide nothing. Just watch an interview with Tupac compared to any other rapper…you can seen the passion he had and how he wanted the entire world to hear his views on American culture, politics, beliefs, etc. That’s why English professors are teaching classes analyzing HIS lyrics, and not any other rapper’s.

  467. reelMothaFukinNigga Says:

    Da 1 ‘n only true rapper…2pac
    all dem otha niggas are hip hop ball lickers. Pac a rapper not a fukin hip hop ball licker.

  468. reelMothaFukinNigga Says:

    with a name like preston you have no buizness saying who is number one, lil wayne a punk, that fools lyrical schemes don’t make no sense (typical hip hop style) 2pac is the best rapper of all time. He told a true story and not a glamour soap opera fake ass story like most hip hoppers 2day do.

    talk like they have a mouthfull of manure,
    you know who im talking about im pretty sure,

    Eminem
    Tupac
    Biggie

    REAL LIST

    Jay-Z
    Tupac
    Eminem
    Biggie

  478. rich Says:

    but most of the rappers these days just rap about the same thing,
    nothing has changed in last 15 years,
    they are commercial rappers,
    rapping bout, girls, money, cars, and drugs
    talking about how good they are, but we all seem to forget if it wasnt for us public buying their records, they wouldnt be anybody, and wouldnt have anything to rap about, apart from being poor and hungry,
    see them with their big posse and most dont even live in the place they grew up, so ok they bettered themselves but still rap about “the hood” when in fact they have lost reallity and dare not go back due to the crap they talk on their “pop songs”

  479. rich Says:

    hip hop and rap these days is just a cross over to r.n.b
    they all try to make a bit more money and appeal to more people,
    but loosing their story.
    now its fame, how they make a name,

    rollin in escalades,
    with 21′s, they think they made – it
    black to grey, your futures fadin,
    shadin, with minds degrading,
    lame duck, im a swan your wading,
    fly off, and take your black tie off,
    rap r.n.b, soon gonna die off,
    you hesitate, while i wait,
    for your next move, check mate,
    your irate, your fools gold -pyrate,
    ryhme restrained why my flow go gyrate,

  480. hello Says:

    The only guy who is trying to save hip hop is Lupe Fiasco. He is a fucking genius , not like wayne and ross who are fucking morons. Nas went downhill when he made a song with Wayne. Listen to Food and Liquor and The Cool. THEYRE FUCKING CLASSICS. But Lasers sucked, because it was a forced and mainstream album. LUPE #1 TODAY HANDS DOWN!!

  481. Dolli Says:

  482. James Says:

    After reading these lists I am a little saddened by some of the choices. I think the top 5 should be a no-brainer, though exact order is debatable. 5 through 10 is more personal preference than anything else. Drake, Wayne, Soulja Boy, etc. should not be on these lists. at the very least you should wait till their careers are over before comparing them to true legends. Anyways here is my shot at at top 10(It should go without saying but this list is solo artists not groups.):
    1.Tupac
    2.Biggie
    3.Nas
    4.Big L

  492. mike Says:

    sorry for d. we might all argue about who is the greatest rapper but the truth is the history and legacy of rap revolves around five guys: pac, nas, jay z, B.I.G, eminem. Why? first nas is the people’s rap, he raps in most cases about whats happening. pac on the other side did the same but in rude way. B.I.G what can i say ” when i die i wanna go to hell cause am a piece of sh**t and he goes on” this guy rap was different but it was about him. eminem is just good on the mic. He does not rap about relevant staff except when he is angry and jigga is just him, he does his thing. raps about himself

    4)Ice Cube
    5)Masta Ace

    8)DMX
    9)Redman
    10)Bun B

    Reallisticaly, not many people make good music anymore, in my opinion. The best period for music in my eyes was undoubtedly 1990-2000, there some decent artists around these days, i feel young buck a hell of a lot, if i had to pick a favourite out of all the new school rappers it would probably be him. I can’t stand the young money camp, their ruining hip hop! At the end of the day this is my list, i struggled to put it together and im not sure if it is in the right order or not, I dont really listen to any rakim/big daddy kane, ive gave that shit a chance and i just cant get into to, thats why they are exempt from my list. The oldest album I own is the greatest adventures of slick rick & the newest album i own is blackout two, i have over 200 albums inbetween.

  502. 1Love-HipHop! Says:

    oh & something else i’d like to include, I cannot stand eminems music, his voice is annoying, his lyrics are for the most of his songs corny & childish, his serious songs aren’t too bad but they aint brilliant either, really don’t see the fuss about this guy, I think white guys just make a fuss over him because of his commercial success so they can feel like they are a part of hip hop. One of my favourite albums of all time is styles p , a gangster and a gentleman, that shit is probably my favourite album from the past decade (2000-2010), man that shit is slept on like seriously, i dunno if its just me but that album is seriously hot! Also, jay rock and nipsey hussle are seriously hot right now, I prefer nipsey out of the two, jay rock is going wayward making tracks with people like rick ross & lil wayne man i dunno if hes doing it just for the publicity or what but he aint fake like them that kid is straight from the street, so is nipsey too & its good to see he aint selling out making tracks with wayne etc, the marathon even thoguh its only a mixtape that shit is hard & so it TMC,, i just hope he gets the big break he deserves man hes been working hard, like him, jay rock & young buck is who im feeling now right now, ive always liked young buck man even though he been kicked out of g unit hes not selling out & doing tracks with wayne & drake & shit. anyway thats it rant over man
