Default List your top 10 MCs

heres mine

o yea... i think 2pac is OVERRATED TO THE MAX... so dont be mad when i dont mention him anywhere on my list

Scarface >> Pac

1. Nas
Just me favorite of all time. Illmatic is my favorite album, love his wordplay, delivery, flow, ect, has a lot of dept in his ****...

2. Jay-Z
The most rounded MC ever IMO.. just not as talented as Nas IMO

3. Biggie
Maybe be 1 or 2 if he would of come out with more ****

4. Common
The man is the king of the metaphors.. sorry Rakim

5. Pharoahe Monch
Almost all of his **** is classic... if not all of it. Dont sleep on Desire. VERY dope album

6. Black Thought
The Roots are MY ****. Black THought really penned down some of the deepest **** i ever heard.

7. Scarface
cant forget about my ***** Scarface. what do i have to say about him?

8. Gza
My favorite member from the Wu Tang Squad. Liquid Swords is my favorite album next to Illmatic "check out my Avy"

9. Kool G Rap
he kinda fell off now, but he knew how to cook up some **** back in the day. 4,5,6 is actually the album i play the most from him

10. Andre 3000 "Outkast"
They put out some dope ass music, but since its MCs so imma pick the better rapper.

Default Re: List your top 10 MCs

Excuse me, but where the hell is Rakim?

Pharoahe is dope but I really don't know about fifth overall of all time.

I think Eminem, despite falling off so hard, definitely deserves a top ten consideration. iIm not a huge Pac fan either but I would still put him up there in my top ten.

Big L should be considered despite his short career, ditto for Big Pun.

My top ten: would be something like...

1.Jay z
2 Nas
3 Rakim
4 Biggie
5 Eminem
6 Dre 3000
7 2pac
8 Big Pun
9 Ghostface
10 Redman

Chino XL, DMX, Raekwon, Ill Bill, Big L, Cage, Common, Talib Kweli, Pharaohe, Scarface, Immortal Technique, MF Doom, Del all getting honorable mentions

You think Nas is good, so it comes as no surprise you don't like tupac. I get it, you think that because you go outside of popular opinion you are unique. Whatever.

5) Lupe Fiasco
6) Q-Tip
7) Ghostface Killah
8) Method Man
