Eminem is the Best he always does what ever he can to stay on top Hes "" THE KING OF RAP "" not only the 21st century but forever

How is a person that HAS NOT ONE SINGLE classic album made it to the top ten? Hell even number one? How is a rapper like Eminem that basically has emotional problems and only raps about killing his mom and wife and killing others for no reason makes it to number one? This site is irrelevant. Kanye has made 3 classics and HAS MADE CLASSIC BEATS FOR OTHERS THAT HAS BEEN CLASSICS. Blueprint is thanks to him. Black Album, etc.
Kanye has such a special ability to create classically soulful--almost jazzy--songs on one album and then switch up to really synthesizing, futuristic tracks on another album. What makes Kanye such a great artist is his ability to bring every element of song and album into this beautiful harmony that makes you want to listen again and again. He's the one rapper whose songs are best listened to in order as an entire album, because it's the "big picture" of Kanye's work that truly tells a powerful story.

You're stupid. Eminem is the best rapper out there and every one knows it.
6 out of his 7 albums have won grammys.
He is truly the best. Graduation was his best album.V20 Comments
So good way better than lil Wayne. why do people like his music. He just raps about money and women. Plus his voice sucks. But Kendrick lamar is straight outta compton - LegitGames12
Kendrick is good but he's not the in the TOP 10. Think of Em, Jay Z, 50, Kanye, Dre, etc.
How is a person that HAS NOT ONE SINGLE classic album made it to the top ten? Hell even number one? How is a rapper like Eminem that basically has emotional problems and only raps about killing his mom and wife and killing others for no reason makes it to number one? Kendrick lamar destroys anyone except jay z in this top ten lyrically since jay z has classics in his lap like blueprint reasonable doubt and such. But kendrick is one the best right now lyrically and the best lyricaly right now DOES NOT INCLUDE Eminem. NAS's worst album destroys every song that Eminem has ever made.
Best rapper under 20 at the moment and he will be a legend to hip hop if not already oneV27 Comments
JAY Z is literally a genius. He's been rocking the rap world ever since '96 with Reasonable Doubt, and hasn't really slowed down for the most part. He is the true king and has the best flow. Where Eminem may have the best lines, and Kanye may be the most "showy", JAY Z is a real master of ALL aspects of rap - lyrics, beats, marketing, and performance.
He's really good with rhymes and can really put messages behind each rap. The best is Run This Town ft. Rihanna and Kanye West
This list is absolutely hilarious. The only person that is anywhere Jay as of the last 12 years is Nas and Eminem. No one else in the 21st Century compare. Jigga for number ONE!
Jay 7 is th king of rapV1 Comment
The best rapper all time by far... No one raps like he does. No one has or ever will match his clever lyrics and his style of rap. The biggest pioneer of rap
Clever rapper one of my favorite rappers
His lyrics are to dope to not listen to, why is he even down here. If you heard Who Do You Love by YG and Drake, you might change your mind.
Way better than the othersV16 Comments
Uh, how is Cole only #6? #7 is the first guy to go platinum in 25 years? #7 is the guy who dropped his sophomore album the same day as one of the best rappers of the century, but still outsold Kanye by over 30,000 copies? One of the realest lyrical rappers in the game is only #7? This is why people say he's underrated. This guy is practically the physical manifestation of Tupac and Biggie's legacy. He belongs right up there with Eminem and Jay-Z and all them. He's a visionary.
Unbelievable lyrics. Cole spills his heart and soul out on each track, it's actually ridiculous. #6? More like #1. Listen to some of his less popular tracks like "Cole Summer" and then talk. He wipes Drake and Eminem off the list in any way possible. Best rapper of the 21st Century.
Flo rida or Tinie Tempah? Are y'all kidding me? J cole even makes the legends go damn.
Has the best story based albums there is...V13 Comments
50 should Be in The top 10 because he been running hip hop from 02-07 and has arguably 2 classic albums with one of them being the highest debut in hip hop. He also has sold like over 30 million records worldwide and has accoplished what jay and diddy have in a shorter period with less material and last but not least he has won almost every beef he has been in if 50 cent ain't a hip hop legend I don't know who is!
waidy from MIA!
50 cent is one of the best rappers of the 21st century because he's invented he've won every beef that he's been in. he said it himself, he "I want them to love me like they loved pac". 2pac was an instinct killer, and nobody has come closer to that than 50 cent!
50 made a huge impact on hip-hop. he destroyed more careers than any other rapper and made others succesful such as The Game. He maybe isn't the most talented rapper, but the most successful one. And theres a reason why he's so successful, its cuz he's really good.
50 cent should be number 1 no body got flow and lyrics like himV5 Comments
Sad that people call him terrible despite not listening to a single one of his songs. The Lil' Wayne from 2008-2013 was actually an awesome rapper, with songs like No Love, 6 Foot 7 Foot and Mirror.
Why is he even on the list he sucks.
He's just great, enough said
He's everything about the modern rap industry
Greatest of all timeV16 Comments
I'm guessing he's only at 15 cause he's not done much in the last 13 years (other than produce)? If not this is ridiculous...
Dr. Dre helped Eminem get to where he is now and I'd dare say is probably the father of rap, making Eminem the son of rap cause without dre, we wouldn't have Eminem. Just my opinion on the way things worked out.
Dr. Dre is the father of rap. He got Eminem to where he is now and Eminem is the best rapper in the world. U have to listen to Mockingjay, When I'm Gone, Rap God, That's All She Wrote, and I Need A Doctor. Dre is the producer mostly, now.
His voice is really amazing and he is my favourite singer
Given this a rap list don't know why u guys saying his singing voice good
Great singer, beautiful voice, and cute, too
His voice is the best feature!V5 Comments
He is the best mike shinoda can't beat himV6 Comments
Best rapper in the world.. Not only Linkin Park fans love him, but also all the people in the world.. He should be at least be in the top 5
Mike Shinoda is extremely underrated but his contribution to Linkin Park is invaluable, not to mention his sick 'Styles of Beyond' project; think 'Remember the Name'.
What the hell mike shinoda at 20. No way he is the rapper of the century. No one can beat him except Eminem and jayz. He is the rocking rapper. Listen place for my head by Linkin Park, he raps crazily. He should be on top3.
Should be in top 5V24 Comments
T.I. is the sexiest rapper alive and he keeps it real in all of his songs he is the best. I love all of his songs. but I don't think that kanye west is better then him they should have put him in 5 and T.I. in 3
Greatest in the game. Some rappers call him the "Jay-Z" of the south. That has lots of meaning. Rappers these days are trying to copy his swag and style but just can't because there is only one king and that's T.I.
HE REPPIN DA SOUTH STR88 UP and T.I DA SEXIEST HOTTEST RAPPER ALIVE G.H BABY...
T.I. is the Rap Ali! K.I.N.G. PERIODV10 Comments
The fact that he isn't in the top 50 is sad. He is amazing and is a real dude
This dude is amazing... Talking about sense
Without a doubt one of if not the best lyricist in the 21st
A$AP IS BRINING HIP HOP BACK. VOTE UP EVERYONE HE'S THE MODERN 2PAC HE'S OLD SCHOOL BUT ALSO NEW SCHOOL.
His music is so easy to really jam too and his lyrics are impressive. Easily in my top 5
A$AP is modern hip hop, his last two albums are so good to jam to, easily my top 3.V1 Comment
I'm gonna protest lecrae should be in the top ten
Damn good rapper, shows a change in lifestyle while still keeping tradition in rap
One of the most inspiring rappers, he definitely deserves to be in the Top 10
This man is a born rapperV10 Comments
Well he is different and way more amazing.
Chip is killing the grime scene right nowV1 Comment
Hopsin is amazing he should be higher in the list. If you listen to his songs and listen to his flow and lyrics you should be able to recognize his skill
Hopsin should definitely be higher in this list
Listen to "ill mind of hopsin 5 & 6". He is the realist rapper ever... But don't take my word for it listen to his music.
He is the most real rapper out here.V8 Comments
Really a champion whose raps are easy to chill too, yet he also has deep songs. Some of everything but its all great. Disappointed to see him this low. He's definitely top 5 quality.
Kid Cudi is a beast. He might be new but his skills are way better than most of the rappers on the top ten. I think he is way better than fiddy. and chipmunk, who is that?
The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night, at at at night. On some real
Kid Cudi has some real chill songsV2 Comments
