Default Top-10 Greatest Rappers in Hip-Hop history.

Top-10 Greatest Rappers in Hip-Hop history.
There are a lot of greats like Big Daddy Kane,LL Cool J,Rakim and Eric.B,Eazy-E,Tupac and Biggie....Eminem,Jay-Z...

Imo the Greatest Rapper ever is Eminem...I don't like his music now but at his prime 1999-2002 he was the best in Hip-Hop History because he took the game to the Highest level ever in all over the world,in a lot of countries.
MC's like Pac and Big made a lot but mainly in US.Em saved the game after Pac's and Big's death in US and made it huge in all over the planet.
Also Em is very skilled and a genius..
Then I have Rakim because in my opinion he is the most skilled ever..

My Top-10

1.Eminem
2.Rakim
3.Tupac
4.Biggie
5.Nas
6.Jay-Z
7.Big Daddy Kane
8.Kool G Rap(very underrated and he is a "teacher")
9.LL Cool J
10.KRS-One(not a fan of him but he is significant in the history of Hip-Hop).

Umm I do not agree with Em being number one. I mean what's your standard popularity?

You have an almost perfect top-10, but in a crazy order. The only person I would remove is LL Cool J(that's just me being biased because I hate him), and add Ice Cube. I think Ice Cube is the most underrated rapper ever. I also wouldn't argue if you threw Snoop in there somewhere. I would also probably throw in Mac Dre somewhere.

I love the roots of hip-hop and the significant trailblazers of the game but KRS-One has never done it for me. He kinda annoys me actually
