number 1 Jay-z rapping def jam till he's the hundred million man. he's not a business man he's a business, man. Now two is and it pains me a little to say this but it is King Mathers. The boy makes you want to Listen. Three Biggie, poppa benn smooth since days of underoos. Four is pac he is a true artist and trived in all areas of proformance.

Nas does have some pretty crappy beats. He is very lyrical though and when he gets a good beat it is generally a great beat. Some of the best beats he's used is Got urself a Gun, One Mic, and Halftime. Just a Moment is good too. So is Ether and Street Dreams. But when it comes to the hardest beats I'd say the Mobb Deep uses the hardest beats. Any true Mobb Deep fan knows wut i'm talkin about.

nas is so desperate for attention now he has to resort to shocking album titles.... pathetic

krs-one is a straight up lame

Best MC alive is Rakim and it always will be until he dies. Absolutely the end of the discussion, anyone who thinks its BIG, 2pace, Nas or Jay-Z is ignorant. Yes all 4 are highly influential and 3 or those 4 are tremendous MC's but all pale in comparison to "The God" Rakim.

Lil Wayne? he's far from the best MC ever

I put 50 Cent and Ja Rule over Weezy...

the best 8 in my opinion are Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z, Pac, Rakim, KRS-1, Chuck D, Ice Cube
