Who is the best rapper of all time? I tackled this very debateful question in my newest hub. Check it out and vote!
I would say Eminem too; what he does is like vocal gymnastics, with clever use of words, and great conceptual material. Unique and skillful rapper.
Hello Librah!! I hope you have a healthy sense of humor........I'm a baby boomer....great grandmother....very conservative, traditional standards and all that bunk..........Rap?? My answer to your question as to WHO is the best rapper.......IMO, is one that has duct tape over his/her mouth!!! OH, my head!!!! LOL
Chuck D. from Public Enemy. He's still the man!!
I second Chuck D. If you really want to kick it old school I would also throw in Mellie Mel of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five or proto-rapper Gil Scott-Heron.
Don't forget "Heavy D". I worked with emotionally disturbed adolescents. Somehow I got my hands on a bunch of videos that he and his associates (Queen Latifah, MDX) made. They were general knowledge, motivation, health and black history type productions that really helped me break the ice. This was way back in the day and they could rock a club, too.
An artist should contribute positively to the community. We all know the bad news by now.
I don't delve huge into the rap genre, but I'd like to point out a couple of female artists that can rap (well):
Amy Heidemann from Karmin
Rapping is very difficult, especially doing it well. And not a lot of women (that I know of) do it. I especially appreciate how these artists can sing well, too. If any of you rap fans know of more female rappers, do share
Does this guy count? Isn't rap about keeping it real?
That's easy. I will tell you the top five rappers of ALL TIME.

Many rappers have proclaimed themselves to be the greatest rapper of all time or the G.O.A.T.Fans have adorned their faves with this title.The greatest of all time. Do you think it's Drake, Wayne, Em, Jay or some other rapper.I think Lil' Wayne is the greatest of all time. He's profane...
