    Default name your top 10 favourite rappers ever

    as the triple six thread has turned into the usual nyc golden age versus everyone else nonsense that we often get on hip-hop threads, i think we should do this to show our colours and be as factional as we like without arguing about it

    anyway, mine are:

    1) Devin The Dude
    2) Bun B
    3) Biggie Smalls
    4) Tupac
    5) Ludacris
    6) Scarface
    7) Ice T
    8) Rakim
    9) Chuck D
    10) Nas

    Default of all time? or 'current' rappers?

    devin the dude though? at number one? okay.

    off the top of my head, my 'favourites' (not saying theyre 'the best' although some of them definitely are) right now are:

    blaq poet
    geto boys
    eminem
    thirstin howl
    ice cube
    tupac
    kool keith
    kool g rap
    thirstin howl
    MOP

    i didn't say the best. i said "your favourite". besides, there's no one better and more individual than devin as far as i'm concerned. he's doing something no one else is doing.

    Big Daddy Kane is about the only MC I can still stand to listen to.
    What's wrong with Raw? One of the all time hip hop records.... never heard of Big L though.

    anyway....

    Big Daddy Kane (so there!)
    Tim Dog
    Rakim
    Paris
    Chuck D (for his delivery even though he talked a load of gobbledygook)
    Biz Markie
    Roxanne Shante

    can't think of any more that don't make me reach for the instrumental.

    edit: oh yeah keak da sneak, disgusting voice, just to prove i'm not over the hill

    Troy you forgot Galliano :P
