Who is the Greatest Rapper of All Time?

Jan 30, 2010 Full story: Associated Content 48

Rap in it's purest form is simply poetry in music. There have been lots of greats that have come and gone but to me there are only five that deserve to be named the absolute greatest; 1) Nas - Nas locked up the top spot in my mind with no doubts after his first record, Illmatic.

The official God's Son Nas is the greatest. Dead or alive. Hail king Nas!! I respect Pac as Nas do. "me and tupac we were soldiers of the same struggle," King Nas says. A great story teller.

A lot of people I know say Drake or Lil Wayne. But the greatest rapper of all time is either Rakim or KRS-One because they have been making Hip-Hop music since the 80's. And of all people, Drake? He came into the music industry only two or three years ago and people want to call him the greatest? KRS-One has created more than ten albums and you call Drake the greatest. He can't even make a song wihtout Lil Wayne or Nicki Minaj and his autotune is played out.

Just because you're one of the OGs don't mean you're the greatest. Same thing, the first computer isn't better than the one you using now.

2pac because he has flow, on some songs he used multi-syllabic rhyming, has completely indulged in society's problems, created sorrowful ballads, has completely changed the hip-hop scene prior to his arrival and has created poetic, ambiguous and prophetic songs and lines, ALL in the space of 5 years.

^ No other rapper equals what he has done, although Eminem comes pretty close (he lacks in the prophetic, poetic and hasn't changed rap as much as 2pac).

I think the best rapper currently still alive is Immortal Technique. And even though everyone always says Pac is the best i cant necessarily agree. Dont get me wrong Pac is my inspiration and i love the man as if i knew him personally (same with kurt cobain) But there are simply too many amazing arists to say one is the best
