1. Eminem for Recovery the best selling album of 2010
2. Weezy F Baby born in a manger
3. Nicki Minaj for some great collaborations with other rappers
4. Kanye West for My Beautiful Dark Fantasy which received critical acclaim
5. Drake for Forever, Over and a decent debut album

Full lil Wayne.. his high weed ass gotta go bakk to jail where he actually sounds smart. That's the only place he'll ever sound smart. Eminen is a true rapper and only he can compete with Tupac. Wayne was better few years ago, but never better than Eminem. Eminem's rap is meaningful and/or makes sense.

Eminem is way better then those other rappers like seriously, listen to his lyrics they ACTUALLY make sense!

He like number one on every good list about rap

3DrakeAubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

Drakes verses take time to create, you see dreak is the best rapper to ever rap about love and relationships " fireworks ", 'best I ever had" "July" and "Say something" all talk bout his past relationships and what he's learnt. HE BROUGHT THE BEST METAHPORS 2 THE GAME.. even chris brown is stealing his style in his new songs. !

this man is the best. I may be 10 years old but I still know a good rapper when I hear 1. That sucka goes hard. When I heard his song fear and heard his Album Thank me later I was like BAM! He's probaly gonna make it as big as pac or biggy. And REALLY? you put eminem in front of HEARTBREAK DRAKE.

Drake. Obviously he's the new best rapper alive! No doubt this guy killed it in 2009 that was his year Drake has been nominated for several awards including Grammys, even being selected to perform at the 2010 Grammy award ceremony. Drake has also won several awards, including two Juno Awards in 2010 for Best New Artist, and Rap Recording of the Year. He's the best. - DrizzyDrakeFan

We're talkin about 2010 right? So let's see who had the best album. Eminem's Recovery was good but was mostly built on the strength of its collabos. Lil Wayne released a garbage rock album and I Am An Overrated Stupid Human Being. Drake's album had no variety and rapped like he was a high schooler handlin fame for the first time. So that leaves Mr. West, possibly the most hated man on the planet at one time or another. mybeautiful darktwisted fantasy got a 94 on metacritic. I don't know wtf metacritic is but it gave Soulja Girl a 57 or somethin on the DeAndriana Way, so it's a reputable source. oh yeah JayZ's album dropped in 2009.

MY BEATIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY WAS A MASTERPIECE FOR KANYE TO SAMPLE ARTIST LIKE BLACK SABBATH (IRON MAN) AND KING CRIMSON AND MOJO MEN AND THE TURTLES WAS AMAZING. THE SEXUAL ARROGANCE HIS MELODIC THEMES BON IVER, WHAT A DARK BEATIFUL TWISTED FANTASY IT WAS HES ON THE LEVEL OF ARTISTIC CREATORS HES THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE HIS LYRICS ARE BANNANAS HE SPEAKS REAL. HERES SOME OF HIS LYRICS, I AM THE DAY ICE CUBE MET MICHAEL JACKSON, SO MUCH HEAD I WOKE UP TO SLEEPY HOLLOW,

Laugh out loud at all the 12 year olds here, lil wayne, gucci mane and drake are some of the worst bubblegum pop crap artists ever to become famous. Drake isn't even a rapper, he's a singer, Lil wayne doesn't rap either, he just mumbles horrible punchlines and metaphors, and I'm not even gonna start on gucci mane.

Kanye and em are the realest artists and best best rapers in the mainstream

Kanye is the best of 2010 hands down. Listen to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Then you'll see what I mean. And what everyone means.
