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
7) Ice T
9) Chuck D
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:
kool g rap

Oh c'mon, arguments are fun. Admittedly, this one has been done to death. Like all the best arguments.
Mine (probably in some way gonna contradict everything I said on the other thread, but fuck it):
Chuck D (now I've done it....)
Sorry, forgot Ghostface...
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.

Two mentions of Big Daddy Kane and one of Big L?
I left the topic in disgust!

What's wrong with Raw? One of the all time hip hop records.... never heard of Big L though.
Big Daddy Kane (so there!)
Chuck D (for his delivery even though he talked a load of gobbledygook)
