Best Rappers and Worst Rappers

Recommended Posts

--Vega--

The best were (in no order):

 

Rakim (Eric. B and Rakim)

Chuck D (Public Enemy)

Nas

Ice Cube (Had the sickest flow of any rapper in his old stuff)

Ice-T

Biggie

 

 

Worst (No Order):

Pretty much anybody nowdays, especially all the sell outs like Lil Wayne and them. All f*ckin suck and the beats suck even more.

I stopped listening to rap a long time agooo... converted to rock (and I'm glad I did).

 

Anyways, when I used to listen rap, these were the best guys I listened to.

 

Nas

Tupac

N.W.A

Eminem

Notorious BIG

50 Cent

Devlin

 

Now... onto the WORST.

 

Lil Wayne (king of worst rappers)

Soulja Boy

Nicki Minaj (has an annoying voice. Also lil waynes royal bitch)

The rest of the Young Money crew (bunch of washed up, talentless rappers. Society is slowly growing pathetic...)

And every other new school rapper out there. Nuff said.

Nope. I listen to many sub-genres of rock as a matter of fact. Oh, and a tiny bit if Techno actually. I'm fine on music.

 

And when I said 50, I meant back in the old days when he was actually good. He sucks ass now, I know.

 

@danjodan - Kesha is pop I think... either way, she sucks. What the f*ck man?

Some of the main ones am listening to are:

 

  • Cannibal Ox
  • Bishop Lamont
  • Eminem
  • Biggie
  • Tupac
  • Slug
  • Vinnie Paz
  • Kno, Deacon & Natti
  • Masta Ace
  • Madlib
  • J Dilla

It's always changing though, but a few on that list will forever remain there. Eminem's only clinging on because I tend to listen to his older stuff more.

So if I said Tupac sucks, will you change your opinion? Because you seem to be unintentionally agreeing with me here.

Like everyone else these are the best in my opinion.

 

Wu-Tang Clan and all their members when they branched off.

Ice CUbe

Eazy E

Eminem - he really kicks ass when it comes to rhyming

Grandmaster Flash - I gotta say i liked couple of his songs...a lot.

Snoop Dogg - In his older songs (The next epsiode, deep cover, serial killer)

Cypress Hill - Some are going to hate for this but i do like their music, a lot of their lyrics are pretty ridiculous, but they do manage to flow quite well.

Hilltop Hoods - The Sentinel great.

JayZ, okay i like his music, but his rapping seems a little i dunno, its his voice.

tech 9

kurrupt

 

sh*t-List, like most this is mine.

50 Cent

Mos Def

anyone with Lil in front of their name.

Twista, he takes way too long to get to the point usees his ability of fast rapping too much and doesn't care about the Lyrics so much.

Kanye West, okay i liked gold digger.

SOulja Boy

Chamillionare.

 

EDIT: STupid lyrics here, some made me laugh.

You have a point but out of the many rappers out there hes never dropped a bad album while he was alive. He was very consistant in his material and with every album he got better.

You people are killing me with this. But having a bunch of words that rhyme is sooooooooo overrated. I don't get it. When people have nothing negative to say about 'Pac, they fall back to that "but he's basic" bullsh*t.

 

And my favorite top 10 probably consists of one group, the Geto Boys.

Lil B has always appeared to be a piece of sh*t to me, but now he's a gay piece of sh*t. Not sure what he was trying to accomplish, but whatever it was, he failed as usual. Old news, I know.

Quote from this dude over at a hiphop forum, this explains all. Everytime someone says Tupac is overrated this sh*t is being posted:

 

 

Yeah man, I hate to always harp on this sh*t, but if you aren't old enough to have been coherent to the era when Pac was alive and especially the years immediately after his death with All Eyez On Me and the Makavelli album, if you are just some kid who started listening to rap in 2003 after hearing The Eminem Show and you are trying to post humously judge Tupac, don't even f*cking bother. There's a reason it's pretty widely accepted that Tupac the person became bigger than just rap. He's forever going to be an icon, you say he's overrated? Overrated how? In the sense that a circle jerk group of white boys who think Lupe Fiasco is the second coming of Rakim retroactively review Pac's sh*t and say he was simplistic lyrically? That he had a lot of filler on All Eyez On Me? That "2Pacalypse Now was his only good record"?? I'll be happy when it stops becoming so cool to hate on everything on the internet.

That's some of the truest sh*t that's ever been spoke.

 

On top of that I would add about Pac. He is the most versatile rapper in the history of rap. I guess that's why he gets this "basic" sh*t from people who don't know what they're talking about. Most rappers make songs to impress, show off, so they stay in these studios for literally a year or 2 writing and throwing away the sh*t that ain't clever enough. And there entire album is basically the same sh*t, different beat. Pac wrote songs for the strugglers, hustlers, gangstas, mommas, youth, bitches, hoes (they're different), tricks, politicians, and so on and so on.. but every now and then he'll make a track to impress, show off his lyrical ability like 'Got My Mind Made Up' and complete the whole album in about 2 weeks because everything he's kicking is real and from his heart. He had natural talent, like that dude in the forum said, he's not just a rapper, he's above rap. 'Me And My Girlfriend' is probably his most complex song because even today, 15 years later people STILL think he was talking about his girl! lol.gif

Nicki's rhymes are decent but she's a clone, she has just about 0 originality. She's just a modern day Lil' Kim and that kills you if you're trying to be considered a great rapper. It's all about creativity. Younger people like her because they don't really know about Kim like that. Back in the mid-90's, Kim was the baddest. I remember her battles with Queen Pen back in the day. Pen got knocked off the face of the earth because her style was just like Kim's but Kim was out first and people knew that. Today is different because it's like 15 years later. If you were a biter in hip hop back then, your career would be over before it starts. Biggie was a big time biter too but thanks to Puffy at the time begging them not to talk, the rappers who were going to call him out remained silent. Wu-Tang, Nas, Mobb Deep, all made diss records but Puffy got to them just in time before they could elaborate on it.
