Who Would Win the Tournament of the Greatest Rapper of all Time?

Updated on July 30, 2014

Over the years there have been many rappers that have made an impact in within the Hip Hop Community and society as a whole. Their words were capable of moving a generation. They made society stand and notice the injustices that were going on in their community; you couldn’t ignore their pain.There are others that encouraged you to keep pressing on despite life's difficulties

Many wordsmiths twist lyrical metaphors that fit complexly like box braids. He or she may have you thinking “Wow, did they just say that?” Other emcees tell us a intricately woven story allowing us to live our fantasies through them.

With that said the question that remains is “ If there was a tournament held between all years past and present rappers who would win and hold the title of the Greatest Rapper of All Time?” How would the new school artists like T.I. fair against the old school masters like KRS-One?

You can decide who would walk out the champion at . Go through round by round, elimination by elimination to get down to the Final 4 Showdown. Who would have the stamina to survive the lyrical cuts and blows to have their hand raised in victory.

Take "March Madness" to another level. Participate in the first tournament of its kind. Pick your champion at and leave your comments below.

      I hear you on that Mundane. I don't know how I missed putting Jay Electronica in the battle royal!

      There are so many things contingent upon a rapper's success in this battle (ie. seeding). Did you go through the brackets and pick who you felt would be the overall champ? In the future I will disclose the results of who the various fans picked. It will be interesting.
