Who is the greatest rappers ever to walk the earth?
I wanna know who is the greatest rappers to roam the earth... From the birth of rap to the present. From Tupac and Biggie to Lil Wayne and 50 Cent...
Tupac and Biggie are the greatest of all time, Bone Thugs, Twista, and T.I. are awesome, I think I would have to say that Eminem and his posse have locked down the rap game for the present.
Its so many.But for me here it is,RUN DMC,ERIC-B&RAKIM,BIG DADDY KANE,LL.COOL J,Public ENEMY,SALT & PEPA,M.C Lite,QUEEN LATIFFA,N.W.A,OUTCAST,TUPAC,BIGGIE,and the one who is at the top of the game right now SLIM SHADY.50 cent and LIL wayne Don't even make the top twenty,you can sell albums and all that but neither 50,or Lil wayne,could survive in a real cypher a freestyle battle for respect,If you are a emcee you know what I'm talking about.I like their music,and have some of their albums,but they couldn't survive a cypher battle with a hungry up and coming emcee.know what I mean?
50 Cent is the most entertaining rapper ever in my opinion but not the greatest. What I mean by that is that if a 50 Cent interview comes on I will watch it because he says some off the wall hilarious stuff.
Big Daddy Kane
greatest is hard, i think i'd have a hard time doing a top 20.
LL Cool J, 50 Cent, and Lil Wayne are far from being the greatest. First of all, LL Cool J is forgotten for the most part. 50 Cent's short reign has already fizzled out as far as i'm concerned. Lil Wayne has some good hits, but when you use a synthesizer or other vocal equipment to change your voice then your not the one rapping.
THE BEST EVER
Sugarhill Gang - Rappers delight
My old favorite
Rappers delight.......Sugar Hill gang
Hard to pick just one Biggie, Em, Jay-z all great!
Em............These top 5 shows up in nearly everyone's list!!
Fabolous.........there's a few more but those are the ones I definitely remember.
Begin like a violin
End like Leviathan
Let me try again.
too many quotes
not for the bubble gum Hip(Pop) pers of today
eminem he is the worlds biggest selling hip hop artist for a reason
"50 Cent is the most entertaining rapper ever in my opinion but not the greatest. What I mean by that is that if a 50 Cent interview comes on I will watch it because he says some off the wall hilarious stuff."
Jim Carrey says some hilarious stuff in interviews too, I'm pretty sure that doesn't make him a great/entertaining rapper.
As a rapper, one's job is not only to make people laugh in interviews, or else Fat Joe would be up there too. 50 Cent might be a funny guy, but as a rapper his value is near ZERO, and regardless of his supposed or not funniness, his entertainment value is dropping as well, since more and more hip-hop fans are getting bored by his tiresome texts and rehashed punchlines. The same goes for Lil' Wayne, by the way.
Eminem is my favorite rapper and at the top of my list.
we have a lot of great rappers but the greatest rapper there among them presently from tupac, biggie, jay z, nas, p. diddy, dre, snoop etcetera is EMINEM indisputably.
Dizasta from Str8up Ent. is. I haven't seen him suck yet he's nice.
Melle Mel, Cowboy, Grandmaster Caz, DMC, Rakim, MC Lyte, KRS-One, Kool G. Rap, Chill Rob G, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Chuck D, Ice Cube, Posdnous, Method Man, Kool Keith, MC Eiht, 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Ghostface, Kool Moe Dee, Nas, Everlast, Ice T, GZA, Styles P, Large Professor, Q-Tip, Chubb Rock, Erick Sermon, Big L, MC Ren, Kam, Pharaohe Monch, Scarface, O.C., Mos Def, Eminem...the list goes on but those are some of the best in terms of being an all-around emcee and elevating the art form, in my opinion. By the way, I don't care much for Em but have to admit objectively that he is a vast talent.
I think I'll walk the line on this one...
Craig Mac, Method Man, 2 pac, BIG etc....
I am a big fan of Tupac and Run DMC, so for me they are the greatest of all time. However, to find out what is the greatest rapper or rappers of all time, you should consider your likes.
Let me give the top five.
# 1 JAY-Z
I vote Common. Or maybe mos def, talib kweli... Check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeTnog5R … re=related
damn... i may have missed it, but i didn't see anyone mention the man Andre3000. what up wit that!
dont get me wrong, there are many heavy hitters, but 3000 kills it. time and time again...
Dre, Dre, and then Dre are my top three. Eminem, Tupac, Fitty, and a few others fall somewhere behind the master of beats.....

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...

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,...
