@ Drake being anywhere near top 20

Nas
G Rap
KRS
Cube
Rakim

Cube and KRS can be switched by a handful of others tho. Those are rappers that had relatively chart success along with impact but more importantly SKILLS at an all time consistent level.

I'd have no argument with swapping KRS with 2Pac. I can even replace Cube with Kane.

Edited to add Rakim

Lemme get an edit and take Drake out. I liked him then but don't **** with him now. Move Biggie back to top spot.

Biggie
Jay/Nas
Nas/Jay
Kanye

Still no definite 5th. My top 4 changes based on what I'm ****ing with at that moment in time

J Cole didn't make anyone's list?



Artist and producer? And he legitimately knows how to play numerous instruments?

He's the real deal, and the messages in his songs are genuine.

1. Nas (IMO, way better at storytelling with a solid rhyme than 2Pac). East coast beast coast
2. Big L (#1 if more material existed)
3. Cassidy (freestyle)
4. Mos Def (one of the most unique NYC MCs in the late 90s/00s)
5. Biggie (mostly due to beats and rhyme, lyrically overrated)

What Big special was his rhyming/flow/ wordplay... specially his wordplay. The way he connected lines with some of his words was witty and funny.

It
Would've been interesting to see how
Big L developed. I don't know if he had the ability to crossover tho.
