LOL at LL Cool J being top 5 rapper. I don't think hes even top 20.
Too Short... are you kidding man? You need to learn about Wu-Tang before starting any Top 20 list about rappers.

In my opinion to be considered top 20 you have to have put out at least 4 albums, been around for over 5 years, sold at least a respectable about of albums, and had some sort of impact on either the world or hip hop. Of course the exceptions would be those who were killed before they could achieve some of this stuff.

And I am going with 25 because that includes some people that are very close.

1. Nas
2. Rakim
3. KRS-One
4. Jay-Z
5. Biggie
6. Common
7. 2Pac
8. Black Thought
9. Eminem
10. Big Daddy Kane
11. Big L
12. Scarface
13. Talib Kweli
14. AZ
15. Slug
16. Big Pun
17. MF Doom
18. Will Smith
19. DMX
20. LL Cool J
21. Aceyalone
22. Redman
23. Murs
24. Busta Rhymes
25. Kool G Rap or Chuck D or Q-Tip or Queen Latifah or Ras Kass perhaps

And I don't really consider any single Wu member to be better than any of these guys. Together they are the best group of all time, but I just don't think they deserve to be considered in the top 25 as an individual. GZA has put out some really great albums and I would consider him the best Wu member, but I just don't think he has done as much as these guys.

List is okay, but really? Meth? c'mon now Meth is so underrated. Meth was the most creative and potent one of them all. Give him some credit over Redman.
