I listen to pretty much everything besides Country. I love Techno when I work out, I used to listen to Metal every day, but I am here to ask who the best rapper/rappers of all time are.

TOP 5

5. Jay-Z
4. Tech N9ne
3. Biggie Smalls
2. Nas
1. NWA

And for the best Rapper in NWA, I would say it goes to Dr. Dre. He is the only one who is still around and selling records. But if Eazy E was still alive, then he would be the one.

I won't use the word best, but my favorite rapper of all time is Dre.

My favorite and arguably the best is Eminem. His albums alone are solid, not to mention all the mixtapes and diss tracks.

Dre, Eminem, Biggie, Tupac, Jay-Z are guys I've always liked. More recently I'm loving Wiz Khalifa though.

I think Lil Wayne will be Top 5 when he is done. He honestly could be in it now.

Dont listen to much rap but Snoop, TI, and Lil Wayne ill listen to if they are on. Eminem's stuff is preety funny and the man can rap for sure. Got much respect for guys like Tupac, NWA, Dre, Jay-z. I have a major crush on Nicki Minaj. That woman is too fine. Love the booty.

#1 - Immortal Technique

Other top rappers: Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Canibus, Chino XL, Murs, Necro, and Vinnie Paz.

EDIT: I think Jay-z, OLD Nas, Tu pac, Big L, and Biggie are all great but I don't think that they are the BEST although they are the most popular and appeal to alot of people. I don't think Lil Wayne is top 200.

I like the list. Dance with the Devil by Immortal Technique is one of my favorite songs all time.

What defines as the "best"? Best commercial rapper, most albums sold, best lyricist ect...

I cant stand real commercial rap (hip pop) like Solja boy and all that ****. I think best has to go to the best lyricist, which in my opinion are....

Slaughterhouse and Eminem
