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
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.
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
Kool Moe Dee? LL? Melly Mel? Kane? Rakim? Chubb Rock? Special Ed? Biggie? Big L (RIP) Nas? JZ? Eminem? Aesop Rock? You???Yep, you can include underground artists (vid link if nec'y). Some of these cats spit so hot it...
