There have been so many lists out there of the greatest MC's or rappers out there. I think a few are Biggie, Tupac, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, and Wu Tang Clan. But there has been so many influences on rap that everybody is claiming to be the best, or the first. Who do you think have made the biggest mark?
I'll admit I've never heard of him. I will definitely look him up, thank you
yeah the Sugar Hill gang is widely considered to be one of the reigning father's. If not the main ones. Blondie's rapture also is one of my favorite's with Fab Five Freddy and Grand Master Flash was name dropped in the song lol
Grand Master Flash was incredible.
Slick Rick and Doug E. fresh were great also.
My favorite had to be Run D.M.C. who should be credited for bringing rap and rock together. Rock/Rap is a huge genre because of these pioneers.

Am I the only one who thinks rap shouldn't be considered music?It isn't singing, its just fast talking- they are pretty much all about the same things, and all sound similar. Why is rap such a popular genre of music?

I really don't have any favorites...but I like the style of Lupe Fiasco & Jedi Mind Tricks, using metaphors, analogies, history, politics and myth for their cryptic punchlines. For Lupe, I would mention - The Coolest, Dumb it Down, Put You on Game, Hello Goodbye, etc. Jedi Mind - Me Ne Sballo,...

How much do you appreciate lyrics in rap?I'm writing a hub on this topic and I'm just curious, do you think rappers can't write good stuff? How do you compare their lyrics to poets lyrics

Do you feel that most rappers rap about things they actually have or want to possessI have been listening to rap since 1996 and I wonder is rap first wishfully thinking or is it actually tell it how it is for real
