I'm partial to old school hip hop myself, but which artist currently alive do you feel is the best?
sort by best latest
Chuck D lol. i think i respected him highly for being him, lots of rappers arent them which is why i respect guys from that old school era, you dont have to be a rap guy to know rap, you just named one of the greatest..you know quite a bit my dude
Ice-T is the man, totally! I had his rap records when I was still in high school and they still made records!
I've been recently acquainted with Chuck D because of Public Enemy's participation on SellABand. I am one of the people that contributed to support their album "Most of My Heros STILL Don't Appear on No Stamp." I've been really impressed.
No one can debate those 3, DMX and Em 2 legends ...others dont know tech9 is an underground legends thats been doing it for years
do you like slick rick ? he's one ot the top 3 story tellers ...
1. Slick Rick
2. Pete Rock
3.Nice and Smooth / Smooth B
No one can tell a story like these 3
Drake ? really ? Luda ? Kanye ? over Common ? Mos Def ? Lupe ? Nas ? ..WOW..well you're entitled to your top 5
Wow! What an answer!
Rakim is like the cat you can't touch, he's like God on the Mic, Scarface is also dope to me he is like the only southern rapper to make sense to me besides Outkast, so many good dudes, EPMD, The Leaders with Busta and a Tribe called quest..etc etc

lol, I like Common and his "I used to love her." Just shooting off the top of my head on the best alive, that's what first comes to mind. Common and Jada, I'll give you that.
I like Rakim too but don't know if he would be my favorite in old school.
