Easily the MOST TALENTED artist OF ALL TIME - best lyricist and most consistent in delivering high quality rap verses... Bone Thugs are the most commended and most inspirational rap artists to current rappers like Kendrick Lamar (who invited them to one of his shows when he went on tour to thank them for inspiring him) and Lil Wayne (who even went as far as literally copying about 3 verses of Krayzie Bone's and making his own song from it) and even to previous artists like Snoop Dogg (check out his YouTube video where he says it to Bizzy and Flesh)... put into consideration the fact that Krayzie is one of the few people on this list that can sing PROPERLY with a range of harmonies and not just the 3-note fluctuation of some of these rappers (50 Cent and Jay-Z), coupled with the fast pace delivery and the lyrics to compete with the best, Krayzie Bone is a legend and if you listen to his Fixtape albums you will hear him sing and rap better than most singers and rappers out now. No need to put Lil Wayne or Drake down because they just be doing their thing and its good because they're doing well for themselves but if you ask the rappers in the game now who their inspiration was to get into rap, chances are most of them will say Bone Thugs... Best hip-hop group of all time and Krayzie Bone is the most talented artist of all time. Whoever said Biggie did the "bone" flow better than Bone was seriously deluded. Talent is something not everyone can imitate and Biggie sure as hell cannot compete with the flow, but his bars were alright. Bizzy Bone still tore up the song and his verse was the highlight of the song, and Biggie was mainly successful due to Bad Boy Records heavily promoting a New York rapper after years of West-Coast domination in the rap game and so the origin of hip-hop (New York) had turned to Biggie as an idol and a resonating symbol for the return of their former glory, this in no way relates to how talented he was which is the main reason why it is still Biggie's most popular song to date (due to the talent of Bone Thugs). Bizzy did the same with thug love feat Tupac although Tupac was a very talented rapper...
1 - Krayzie Bone - most talented
2 - Eminem - second most talented
3 - Tupac - made the most impact to the late 90's and early 00's rap scene
4 - Layzie Bone - most lyrically talented (check out 'law of attraction' & 'thug by nature' albums)
5 - Bizzy Bone - very very inconsistent but has the most potential (check out 'muddy waters' and 'mercy mary' singles)
6 - T. I - best southern rapper
7 - Ludacris - highly underrated but addictive to listen to
8 - Twista - used to be accused of trying to imitate bone thugs but is a great talent nonetheless
9 - Biggie - lyrical genius but not very versatile (cannot harmonise well or change delivery tempo to much efficacy)
10 - Lil Wayne - punch line titan, statistically speaking he has delivered the most punchline styled lyrics in all rap songs so to disavow that would be to deny punchline style lyrics any value in this sort of comparison.
I wonder how many Lil kids & teenage girls voted on this list or str8 up retarded because you gotta b to think that krayzie bone ain't at least top 5 if not 1 because krayzie can sing & harmonize he has elite flows, lyrics, delivery, voice, everything he does is elite & he can kill any beat you put in front of him & the proof is in his fixtapes takin other artists beats & perfecting them & bizzy bone & tech n9ne should b up there too & krizz kaliko should definitely b considered too there's not many rappers out there that can truly sing & rap & krayzie bone & the rest of bone thugs are LEGENDS in every sense of the word & there gonna be & should b in music hall of fame if there was such a thing laugh out loud but 4 now I'll settle for rock & roll hall of fame & rap/hip hop hall of fame they innovated the whole rap game
Best sounding rapper in the game. Krayzie can ride an instrumental perfectly and has some meaningful lyrics
This position is so unreal that I have to laugh laugh out loud. I'll say it like this, Bizzy bone stated in a interview on YouTube that he beat Jay-Z in a rap battle using Krayzie bones verse. In addition, Bone outshined both 2pac and Bigge on "notorious thugs" and "Thug love" no matter how you look at it. Nas only has lyrics, which is not enough to compete with Krayzie's flow, harmony, speed, and creativity. Eminem is a product of Bone and just jumped on the Midwest wave. EM is good lyrically and a little at singing, but he is in the same boat as NAS for lacking in all the areas Bone have mastered (especially Krayzie). Krayzie bone alone has a lane that no one has ever been able to follow and will probably never see, trust me, it goes that deep!
Krayzie Bone rules the rap game in every facet of rap.. The only part of his repertoire that ain't better than EVERYONE else is his lyricism.. He's not bad, most of his lyrics are amazing but he's not the BEST in this department.. Definitely the best flow of the entire rap game, he can switch up the flow and do EVERYTHING. Nate Dogg type singing, flip-flop slow, faster than anyone else with the best soothing melodic flows ever.. He deserves top 10 definitely
Wow! I'm shocked to see krayzie bone and even bizzy bone this low in the rankings. A lot these rappers mentioned shouldn't be on the list. Krayzie bone is one of the greatest hip hop artist still putting it down after all these years. Its bone thugs forever
Best flow and delivery ever. Very strong lyricist. Created a style no one can duplicate. Singing ability is strong - harmonization is top level... Creativity top level... Only comes across hard, never soft. Krayzie Bone is the best rapper ever, and it's by a distance
There is no one in the music business who can combine singing and rapping in the same way. His voice is smooth and his lyrics are actually worth taking the time to interpret, nothing like current rappers who are stuck on the same three topics
Krayzie Bone has a flow of his own and has the greatest harmony! Should be at top of this list!
He has developed the skill that only is imagined and can never be put into sound by any other person! By far the best rapper to ever live!
Is one of the only rappers today that writes meaningful lyrics and has better flow than most rappers on the top ten list. He can also rap fast and still have enough flow for you to understand what he is saying. - BTNHarmony
I can't believe that the first Bone member came in at # 54 in this list. Blasphemy. There are a lot of "rappers" on this list in the top tier that have no business being there. Shame. These people voting on here putting these so called rappers at the top have no idea on what real rap/ hip hop is. It's probably those damn skinny jeans cutting off their circulatory system with Fo hawks auto tuning on Nintendo beats... @$€%#%^€€¥#
Krayzie gets forgotten because of the group, but Mr Sawed-off Leathaface is the heart and sole of the group. Speaking of 'soles', they had to have sold their sole for their talent! Bone came out of nowhere and though many have tried, (especially in the 90's. There was an attempt at a "Bone Clone" song by everyone) they have yet to be matched! Though some like Tech N9ne come close. (I'm not saying Tech copies them by the way, just that his talent approaches theirs)
Anyway, I guarantee that EVERY rapper respects and wishes they had Krayzie's talent. Hell, every big name collaborated with them in the 90's till now; Eazy E, Tupac, Biggie etc. Who else can say they had that kind of attention from the great artists?
One of the fastest rappers that is able to maintain different vocal sounds and probably the best flow, as well as, lyrically inspirational and motivational in his music and has never sold his soul to the devil. Clearly the best.
Krayzie Bone is number 1. He has flow, he has an amazingly unique style, and he is the most realistic rapper on this planet. No doubt, he is a unique, realistic, down-to-earth rapper. There is no competition.
His flow is incredible. He can rap or sing on any beat. He is one talented rapper definitely one of the best. He not only amazed his fans in the US but his name surely reached a lot of countries. The most underrated artist.
No way 58 that makes me mad he's way better than wayne and any new "rapper" these days and he still raps to this day ill never stop listening to bone thugs should be in at least top 5 if not number 1 along wit the rest of the thugz
His flows are just amazing
There are like no other especially in the 1st of the month an the crossroads you just can relate to what he is saying point blank period his flows are great
I don't know why krayzie bone isn't near top 5 compared to some of these guys, I think people really just like whatever's mainstream and new nowadays...
Krayzie is the only musical artist to create so many different musical harmonys. All genres try to copy his sound yet everybody falls short. His musical talent is too good for most to even realize.
Krayzie Bone is very talented and deserves recognition for being one the greatest. He could sing and he's a dope rapper. I think he's better than everyone on this list
Krayzie Bone is a innovator, a legend, and the best rapper EVER. Bone's flow is underrated but also the most immatated. He is the one who has everyone trying to harmonize in their raps (even when they can't sing) like he does but no one will ever be able to do it better. Krayzie bone should have the number 1 spot on the best rappers of all times.
Krayzie bone and the rest of the bone thugs family should be in the top 10 at least! They have been rapping all the way back in the 90's! What rapper till now have done that
One of the greatest to ever touch a mic love his flow and his style. His lyrics are some of the best I have ever heard. He should be at the top of this list
Krayzie Bone is definitely the best rapper God has provided. He should be in the top 3 at least, music these days is slipping from what it used to be.
An incredible rapper, combining flow, speed and some awesome lyrics to create some truly great songs like We Still Here, Get'chu Twisted and Heated Heavy. The best for me. Bizzy is also good.
