I remember this kid getting clowned on hardcore in my ghetto ass Middle School for including Big Daddy Cane on this pie chart in math class. This chart included Ice Cube, Ice T, Eazey E, MC Hammer, and Big Daddy Kane for favorite rappers amongst students. Yes MC Hammer was respected in my hood!

Not an idiot like the rest of you    

These people think they look cool trying to clown Coolio? They obviously have never heard of WC and the MAAD Circle or any of his solo stuff other than Gangsta's Paradise or Fantastic Voyage (both of wich are fine songs). Anyone who would put Eminem on a list of top 5 ALL TIME rappers and then talk **** about Coolio like he's a joke, has no credibility. Also, any top 5 list without Scarface is a joke. The best and one of the most prolific EVER!

1. Scarface
2. Jay Z
3. Ice Cube
4. Tupac
5. E-40/Ant Banks/DJ Quick/Eazy E?

Best rappers? LMMFAO! There is no such thing as an even remotely close to good rapper......let alone BEST!

It's pure garbage, and when you can rank a list of the ten best, you speak volumes about your own lack of ability to appreciate REAL talent, of ANY kind. And I won't refer to musical talent, because "rap" is not music, or talent.

Eminem is the Justin Beiber of rap. He's pretty good...sells a chizt load of cds...makes a lot of money. But have anyone actually listened to his music? Most of his songs are about one thing...killing his ex-wife and burning her house down.

I would agree with Mike, I like Eminem and can rap but none of his albums are classic his last CD was far his best so far til date. None of his albums I have in my heavy rotation of must listen in my car like tupac,biggie, nas, scarface, jay-z,. To put out a list is very lame nowadays fab has come a long way as far as what is out right now he is killing the competition.
