    [QUOTE=Edward]Big Daddy Kane is about the only MC I can still stand to listen to.

    Noice!

    ...for me, my favorites (again, by no means who i think is best, but who i enjoy the most):

    1. jay z (undissable)
    2. ghostface
    3. mystikal (i said it...)
    4. kool keith (mostly circ. 1986-1996, but there are some exceptions)
    5. method man (no longer, but from 36 Chambers thru Tical thru various guest spots, for a few years he was amazing)
    6. dmc (probably just for the rush i still get from hearing "i'm DMC in the place to be, i go to st. john's university)
    7. ice cube (one of the few rappers who can be consistantly engaging over multiple albums, he was pretty untouchable from NWA thru Lethal Injection)
    8. spoonie gee (is not actually that good, but somehow translates well to record in a way alot of other old school rappers don't... )
    9. biggie (it took me a while to grow on him, the voice, etc, but no one puts their personality forth on record better than biggie)
    10. sadat x (such a weird voice...)



    people i'd put on the list if i was doing a "best" list:

    melle mel
    rakim
    dig daddy kane
    nas
    busta (can be annoying, has never put out a classic album but no one can do more with a 30 second guest spot than him...)
    redman (ditto)
    pharoah monch (ditto ditto ditto)


    i actually had a hard time making this list... so many rappers i enjoy on one or two songs, no matter how good, i don't know if i'd say were "the best" or my favorite...
    ... plus so many rappers that often get on these lists, i couldn't give a fuck about (big pun)

    Now, the moment for which we've waited for...THEY'RE AT THE POST...The rappers carry 200 pounds; Biggie 340...Chuck D throws his set...Rakim fidgets...KRS-1 seems a bit uneasy...And...THEY'RE OFF IN THE SUNNY DISSENSUS RAPPER STAKES!

    For the early lead that's Rakim in the center of the racetrack...Nas is away well as Raekwon goes to the whip right out of the gate...From the far outside Chuck D has moved up to be second...Then it's Tupac, settled nicely on the rail; he's a length and a half behind Chuck D...It's two more lengths back to KRS-1...Nas, almost abreast, is seventh. And joining these two, four wide, are Ghostface and Ludacris...Biggie is trapped early by that wall of rappers and he's settling in 9th...Eminem is content to bide his time...

    Default The Top 10 Emcees All Time!

    (Every emcee I pick for this list revolutionized the art of emceeing forever..if you didn't revolutionize emceeing in some wayin some way or form than you shouldn't be in the top ten...this isn't a popularity or sales list in my opininion, but one of skill, importance and influence of the history/culture of Hip Hop period *Stelfox groans...though understandibly. lol* )

    1. Rakim
    2. KRS One
    3. Kool Keith (Ultramagnetic MC's)
    4. Kool G Rap
    5. Big Daddy Kane
    6. Kool Moe Dee
    7. Grandmaster Caz
    8. Grandmaster Melle Mel
    9. Ice T
    10. LL Cool L
    11. Notorious B.I.G.
    12. Nas/Jay Z (Tie)
    13. Slick Rick
    14. Busy Bee/Cowboy (he revolutionized the art of emceeing/call and response that the South has spun into many different forms of Hip Hop)/Blowfly
    15. Run/DMC (Tie)

    One.
