Who is the Greatest Rapper of All Time?

Jan 30, 2010 Full story: Associated Content 48

topic is often brought up . but from my view point he is my favorite.he is the epitome of the new york city street resident .his stories are articulate and savy.crime laced as the lyric's are the urban person man or woman can identify with them he posses a very high intellect . you hear it in his diction .the guy's he talk's about in some of his lyric's are real street legends ( fat- cat , pappy mason supreme - team ) these are legendary black mob figure's . before 50 cent told the stories , he described plot's scene's and stories lines . he is the rap version of world renowed author donald goines .

tupac because his music still relavant 10+ after being released unlike rakim,krs one e.t.c.he is a more than great rapper he is a revolutionary,a cultural icons.other rappers are just good rapper nothing more,not leader like he was.he is considered to be the greatest rapper worldwide unlike big,rakim etc who are considered to be great in their hometowns need i say more!!!!!!

Damn family you sound just like me..I heard some cat asked on 106 and park who was the biggest legend Tupac or Lil wayne because he was arguin with friends that wayne was...i would of lost my job if I was the terrence dude..cause I wouldve strangled the Dumb bastard..Comparing Wayne to Big, Nas, Jay and Pac is not right you should be Hung for that shit..This 15 and under crowd is too much...
