i am sick of everyone proclaiming lil wayne the best rapper when he is only 25 or something. Yeah he's been at it a while but no way he is better than Pac or Jay-Z. Drazen, how could you NOT HAVE Jay-Z in the top 10. He definitly deserves it. I am not saying i dont like Lil wayne he just isn't top ten yet. WHen someone like Jay Z has released 20 years of music to some kid. As for 50, he just hasn't done enough in my mind to be in the top ten best, although he is one of my favorites. You might also want to throw Dre in there, not as an artist. He has done more for rap than anyone producing Eminem who we all share as the #1. Maybe Em 1, Pac 2, but Jay-Z is defintly in there top 5 at least.

Yes, Jay-Z is very good but for man who have 3 times more albums than Eminem or Pac I don"t think he is for top 5 but top 10 deffinetly.....If I am not wrong he has about 15 albums it is not strange why is he popular.Imagine that Eminem has that much of albums then we will all agree that Eminem is king, now he is on top 3 with pac.....Yes I forgot Dr.Dre let"s say he is on level with Biggie
who is litlle overrated thats my opinion...

Lupe Fiasco is the hottest rapper out right now by far. Then you can throw Common and Kanye West in there. The Game would be next the Lil Wayne. That how I feel.

Not that Tupac and Em are (were) bad but Rakim is without doubt the best MC of all time. He invented complex rap, none of the guys on this list would sound anything like they do now if it wasn't for him.

Alright so let me first say, that I could listen to lil wayne all day, the things he says is crazy and sometimes you need to play it back to understand what he is truly saying. But, without a doubt Wayne is not in the top 5. His rhymes are creative, but he doesnt say anthing in them. Its metaphor after metaphor. Punchline after punchline. Hot beat after hot beat. And he posseses a voice people wish they could have. Give him a few years maybe he will be up there. But as of right now, no way. How can you put out a top 5 list without naming some people like KRS One, Rakim, LL Cool J, Scarface, Snoop, Ice Cube, and Big Daddy Kane

u say wayne doesn't say anything in his rhymes, but tell me once that ll cool j rapped wit a purpose other than tryna get a girl 2 fall for him?
Big daddy kane did nothing but brag about himself.
the rest i can agree that they rapped with a purpose on most of there songs, but thats what gets me so much. Wayne brags about how hot he is on the mic, but aint that what run dmc did on almost every song? but since they rapped so long ago they are considerd the best?
Naw, time doesn't tell who the best, just skills
