Common

Snoop Dogg isn't the Best Rapper/Actor

But I Know Who is...

EXCLUSIVE

Common says Snoop Dogg was barking up the wrong tree when he declared himself the world's greatest rapper/actor ... 'cause he tells TMZ, someone else deserves the #1 spot.

The "Hell on Wheels" star was heading home from the gym on Monday ... and we asked him about Snoop crowning himself king of the actor MC's.

Common says Snoop's leaving out at least one famous rapper who kills it on the big screen ... and he took the high road by not naming himself.

Check out the clip for his pick ... (Hint: he was NOT in "Soul Plane").

Common is the best rapper/actor that comes to mind. Tupac believe it or not was more than decent in the few films he was in. As for Snoop, no shade but he'll always be typecasted as the mellow pot smoking guy in films. That's just his image.

2pac in gridlocked, above the rim, and juice left the viewer intrigued. You could feel the passion he had for acting in those films

Several of them are very good actors. Will Smith of course. Ludacris, LL, Mos Def, Queen Latifah, Tupac, Ice T, Ice Cube. Snoop is decent but he's not in the top 5 let alone being the best.
