First and for most I'm gonna have to disagree with everyone here.

Top Ten. Still Activally Rappin.

1)Jody Breeze (Honestly the best rapper he is underated heavily.)

2) J.R. Writer (If Dipset Backed Him With The Moolah He Would Pop Off.)

3) Cassidy (By Far THe BEst Freestyler On The Earth.)

4) T.I.(Realist In The Business Today.)

5) Drake (Fuck Lil Wayne He Has Lost His Damn Mind These Days. Drake Is The Future.)

6)Tha Joker (On His Come Up If You Haven't Heard Of Him You Will)

7) Ludacris (Forever making me laugh on the beats.)

8)Asher Roth (Not That Mainstream Nonsense. But he's a white boy that spit on what he know.)

9)LA The DarkMan And Willie Da Kid( They A Package Deal. They On The Come Up Reppin For The Hood.)

10)Juelz Santana(Crucial.)

none of you clowns know shit, first of all you can you gotta put Biggie at 1 bc hes been dead for a decade and still got stayin power people still listening and discovering him for more then a decade. Then you have to put jay z and nas at 2 and 3 bc well by the time there dead they might go one and two, Tupac was just over hyped bc of the medias obsession of gangsta west coast rap but hes fading in memory. Big L is another who is coming thru the light and is being discovered more and more every day, then you could round off the top ten by slick rick, rakim, wu tang, big daddy kane, easy e, eminem(just bc he was the first real white rapper) you could go with big pun in there, ll, but the jist of it is like that this is not my opinion, it is, what it is
