The only 2 rappers I like out of that group are Nelly and DMX (besides 50 when he first came out, now i cant stand him). None of them are great lyrically.

If i were to rank them

Nelly
DMX
T.I.
Ludacris/50 Cent

All of them are super charismatic with a clear distinct identity and style associated with them. Real characters.

Immediately DMX and Luda were the top ones. Their catalogues are too broad...

You've got ridiculous dark sh!t from DMX.. "the snaakkkee the raattt the caatt and the dogg"
You've got that cutesy Christian stuff .." rudolph the red nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose"
You've got his fast paced intense sh!t .. "iz they ridin with us"
Dance bangaz .. "get it on the floor get it get it on the floor"
pump up songs " x gonna give it to ya/when i come thru"
and so much in between.

Then Luda just kills it with the comedy angle "no. 1 spot, sticky icky icky" soe of his friendlier stuff "southern hospitality" some of that sexy dirty stuff "waterfalls, fantasy, stand up" and just exudes outstanding masculine energy.

He was so consistently strong during the entire 00 era and then made cameos on a few nice films.

As I'm form Connecticut/New York and have never been to St. Louis or down South, I personally side with 50 over TI or Nelly although TI and Nelly both have had more devoted fans for a longer stretch of time.

Even after 50 had all those endorsement deals Nelly's Hot in Here still bested practically anythign that came otu.

But CJ had If I can't do it and what up gangsta in addition to 21 questions and in da club.
Still I'd say
P.I.M.P > Pimp Juice
21 Questions > Over and Over Again
Hot in Here > Candy Shop
I'm An Animal > Heart of a Champion (though conventionally its othwerwise)
If I can't do it > most nelly's songs
Vitamin Water >>>> Air Force Ones
G-Unit >>> St Lunatics (although yayos fukkin garbage banks is good here and there and imo Dupri is an underrated producer)

nellys fast as fukk but 50s just flat out jacked, nelly got the bandage but 50 got the cool lisp. tough call damn.

know nothing about t.i. lol

Default Re: Rank These Rappers

I am finally starting to come around on TI...he is clearly talented, if you're sleeping on him you need to listen up, he is head and shoulders above Nelly

his opening verse on the All Gold Everything Remix is one of the hardest things I have ever heard...

my rankings for these would be...


1. T.I.
2. DMX
3. Ludacris
4. 50 Cent
5. Nelly
