The Top TenXW

1EminemEminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time.

Eminem seems to be really popular in rap-related lists. Anyway, Eminem wins this, hands-down. Tupac is great too but Eminem has always been my favourite in rap. Best freestyler, best lyrics, best everything. Eminem is truly a lyrical genius. I have friends who hate rap but they love Eminem. He pretty much invented rap music. Eminem will always be my favourite rapper, no matter what. I love him.

He's undoubtedly the best rapper. Even people who hate rap like him.

He is the best rapper frigging ever. Eminem makes sense in what he raps. Tupac is second even though he just cusses.

My best rapper of all time

He was a true poetic. Left poetry to continue his legacy after death
Only spoke the facts n always had a Black man point of view

He is better than Eminem watch on YouTube and check his list

Tupac SHOULD BE NUMBER 1. I feel he is the most influential rapper of all time. It's so sad he had to die at the age of 25. Tupac is the greatest person that ever walked this earth...I just wish he made more songs. He's a true rap legen and he should be honoured.
Tupacs songs made so much of sense like the song Changes or life goes on. Though he may have done wrong things but he truly enjoyed life and he lived it to the fullest. After all the saying is 'live fast die young' and that what he did. Here in South Africa he's legacy still lives on and he's songs are still being played all over this county. No musician,poet or rapper can ever beat this man he is a rap God. No rapper can ever compare to him. Thank you DR.Dre for making Tupac being recognised for his music I mean if it wasn't for you we wouldn't have know this Rap King this Rap Legeng This RAP GOD. We still mourn for Tupac even though its been 19 years since his passing. We still do research on his death and we still pray ...more

I'm a Biafran-Nigerian but I must tell you that snoop dogg is the realest G in the music industry, if you argue it then think of why the rest of them respects him so much even the most richest of them.
