Default How many rappers should ALWAYS make the top 10 list?

I could think of 6, that should NEVER be taken out of anyone's top 10 list, even if u have 4 others ahead of them.

Andre 3000
Biggie
Jay-Z
Eminem
Nas
2pac


Who else should be on this list? Kanye West? Ice Cube? Rakim? BDK? T.I? Big Pun? Should Snoop be on this list and Dr. Dre ?

Im thinking Kanye West? IMO T.I is making a case to crack the top 10...

Kanye West? J Cole has five times as much talent as Kanye and a lot of people wouldn't put J Cole in the top ten just yet. Your top 6 looks pretty good though, outside of Jay Z. Success wise he's up there, but talent wise he wouldn't be anywhere near top ten for me.

Only 3-4 of any of those names would make my top 10. No one has an automatic lifetime spot. That's like saying you'll just never accept that there might be a better artist, which is pretty much how all the old heads think.

This is in no order:

Jay-Z
Nas
Tupac
Biggie
Eminem

Also Wu Tang Clan if you want to count them as a single entity.

He's great, I just don't think he is that big outside of the East Coast, at least here in L.A, You only see Nas, Jay -Z & Da Wu fans for the most part. It wouldn't bother me to see him in someones top 10 list.

Rakim hasn't been relevant since 1992. Don't mean he shouldn't make a top ten list.

i like J cole, 1 of 5 current rappers i listen to today but i gotta be honest, his two albums have not touched Kanye's best. IMO Kendrick is the only newbie that has a legit shot

What does rapping talent means? I mean, can't Wiz Khalifa rap Tupac or Eminem's songs without much difficulty?
