This is a good list for sure, but it sort of makes no sense. If Em is #2 in lyrics and #3 in flow, how does he not make your 5 best?

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.
Lupe Fiasco is overrated man. And he probably shouldn't even be in the top 10

Lil Waynes songs have no meaning. They are just catchy and are full of fun metaphors and rhymes. He wont be considered great until his songs have some meaning. Eminem is the best, them pac and Wu Tang. Idk if I would put Jay-Z in there, not because he isn't good I just don't like a lot of his stuff. Biggie is good but overated because he died. So top five for me would have to be

Wu Tang
Lupe Fiasco
Kid Cudi (My personal favorite artist so don't shit on me for it haha)

For me, Eminem's voice just isnt meant for rapping. Hes great at free styling but personally NaS is my favorite. He was a great free styler had great flow, and a good voice.
