Out of these 20 names that I've assembled, which is the best? Vote Vote Vote!!
none of the above...rap sucks
Bleh, a lot of really overated "artists" up on that list.
Big Punisher I would say was, and still is the best all-time.
But from that list I would say Nas, Mos Def, and Jay-Z make my top 3.
are one of those outkast?
There is a whole lot of absolute shit in that list.
lol, I just put up a list of names that I thought of. It's not a poll for best rapper of all-time.
2Pac shit is still going strong.
And, for you people who don't like rap, why do you come to a rap thread?
It's Mos (and Talib) all the way for me.
Nothin makes me happier than a little Blackstar
This poll is worthless without Rakim
but to answer it, Jay-Z
Out of those...?
I guess as a writer i'd take Eminem, but overall I like Mos Def.
there was no "None, rap is crap" option
impossible to chose...they all have there own style and way they rap. but i like dre.
where are the beastie boys????
I have all of Eminem's, Nas's, and all of rawkus's cd's, and in my opinion when Eminem and Nas are on point, its hard to stop either one. They both have better producers than Mos or Talib. Talib's lyrics are top notch but his voice is his weakness. Mos def is great but not consistant in terms of his dedication to music. B.O.B.S. was stellar, but what was that, 1998? Em's verses lately have been gettin better and better, and same with Nas, he has a couple verses off the bravehearts cd that are straight up fire
I picked 2Pac cause of just how he really embodied hip-hop but lyrically i have to give it to Canibus. If you doubt it just listen to rip the jacker.
Yeah, I forgot to add, KRS-One, Common, Rakim and Talib. And I didn't put the Beastie Boys in the poll, since they're a group, and this is just about solo rap artists. If I put the Beastie Boys in, then I'd have to put in N.W.A., Wu-Tang, etc. etc.
I would say 2 Pac, then snoop, dre. Those are my favorite 3.
kris kross make you/ jump, jump.
damn,no choice for "rap is pure bullshit"?
fucking void of taste thread.
Obviously you have no variety in what you listen to.
Mos Def, Talib, old school > You
I could listen to any Nas album without skips but Mos Def can bring it like nobody's business. And what's more, he actually doesn't talk about guns or drugs in his raps. :thumbsup:
A good up and comer to keep your ears open to is Platinumberg (an emcee from Montreal). Check him out.
i do and rap isn't in it.
rap is bullshit
