Whoa, stop right there... DMX has no skill? If anyone has been showing up on these lists too often, its Nas. His beats are still stuck in the mid-90's. DMX does a good job of mixing up the gangsta $hit with real life stuff. Ruff Ryders & G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath got the rap game locked down. Nobody can touch any of them.

Anyone who list DMX suffers from having a clue. Guy is a joke of a rapper.

Agree with the Gobbster.

Without any particular ranking:

Talib Kweli
Elzhi of Slum Village
Common
Busta
50 Cent (pre Massacre, listen to Get Rich... again, every second track is a potential hit, he is spitting fire on that album)

I consider Jay retired and NAS lost in time. The Game was all beats. I love the music of Kayne West, but he is not the most talented rapper. Lupe Fiasco is great, but I am not going to put him up there after 1 album. Although Daydreaming is a hell of a song and its not even his best on the album.

umm.. and that makes him a worse rapper how?

nobody's beats suck as much as Lupe Fiasco's but he's still the best rapper out at the moment.

no particular order except for #1

To most of you:

This isn't the list of best rappers being played on the radio, it's just the list of best rappers.

Have you guys ever heard any DMX freestyles? It's just him barking half the time. Dude's not exactly the most talented lyricist imo. That's not to say I don't like his music though. I still listen to Ruff Ryder's Anthem a few times per week. GETS ME AMMMPED!

if you wanna hear lupe on some good beats listen to the following mixtapes. they are much better than food and liquor IMO.

Fahrenheit 1/15 Part 1
R.O.T.N (revenge of the nerds)
A Rhyming Ape
Touch The Sky Mixtape

for a sample of the kind of beats you'll here go to http://www.myspace.com/djbusy and listen to mr.mcfly.

my favorites:
F 1/15 Part 1 - Failure
F 1/15 Part 1 - Boss Playa
F 1/15 Part 1 - Hater Hop
F 1/15 Part 1 - Slow Down
F 1/15 Part 1 - Ooh
F 1/15 Part 1 - WCGI Freestyle
R.O.T.N - switch (science project)
R.O.T.N - Tilted Part 3
A Rhyming Ape - Happy Industries
Touch The Sky - McFly
Touch The Sky - Absolute Fiasco

Touch The Sky is kind of like a "best of" the mixtapes.
