Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

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.

Eminent is the world fastest and greatest rapper he actually kills it in rap god
