the thing about true hip hop is that in general if it doesn't speak directly to your heart you will never beable to truely understand it, you may be able to respect it, but you will never be able to truely feel the music for what it is nor will u ever be able to rank its top period. those who love true hip hop know what i am saying and would all agree that these comercialized non life story telling "rappers" do not deserve the hip hop title. just because it's catchy does not make it good.

2:BIGGIE SMALLS he made it to diamond and if it wasnt for him rapping would be the same today if u listen to his song they will speak to u in ways that nothing else can

3: 2pac the only reason i think is is third is because he made the 76 million albums and not one would i say it was **** because he made the late 80s and early 90s he was and amazing artist thats why he was name the 86 best artist of all time in my book its the 20th of all time 3 in rapping business
