122Del tha Funkee Homosapien

For Del to be this far down the list is a joke. (But then again Slick Rick is somewhere in the 160's I think while drake is near the top so I'm not surprised). Del is EASILY one of the best MC's to ever do it he's just been criminally under exposed since he went indie and left the major labels in the 90's. As far as flow he is undeniably one of the best to do it. In fact I'll say he's the best to do it, and definitely on the same level as a Rakim or Eminem. But when it comes to the 'technical' part of putting bars together I'll give those two the slight nod. But nobody can ride a beat like del when he's feel in it.

Del's imagery is amazing and he's my favorite to listen to when he's on good production. Also founded one of the best rap groups to ever do it in Hieroglyphics. He and Hieroglyphics single-handedly defined a new West Coast underground sound that had not existed before them. They essentially created a new sub-genre within rap.

Del also has the best voice I've ...more

Hip Hop ain't dead. It's just burried alive, and Del is the reason for underground hip-hop to be living!

Del and mf doom are the best rappers around in my opinion. Del is the reason I even got into rap in the first place, after I heard "Clint Eastwood" and "Rock the House" on the gorillaz's first album. And his side project, Deltron 3030, is one of the coolest things I've ever heard, and I can't wait for Deltron Event II!

Del is highly underrated. He has very good flow - Mcgillacuddy

123Timbaland

He made an impact when he unleashed his new album: Shock Value, even scott storch got nothing on him (Go Timbo! )

124Dizzee Rascal

Dizzee rascal has the best flows, wiley makes the best beats both kings of the grime scene and dizzee lyrically beats any American rapper hands down

His duet with Shirley Bassey - Diamonds are Forever is sublime a must hear.

He is the best when he sing with alexandra burke

126Big K.R.I.T.Justin Scott, better known by his stage name Big K.R.I.T., is an American rapper and record producer from Meridian, Mississippi.

When its all said and done..K.R.I.T. will be up there with the best of them. He makes nothing but classic music.

Definitely a contender, although he's just now getting noticed,

He is my 2nd favourite rapper after Tupac. He has it all

How many of you have even heard Cool 2 Be Southern?

127Tablo

The words that Tablo spits out are pure genius and meaningful. You can feel the passion and emotion in his raps.

Tablo is such an inspiration. His music is real and talks about actual issues that many people try to hide from the rest of the world. His rap, his lyrics, the words he speaks all have meaning. He's super talented and deserves more recognition for what he does and what he's been through. Tablo's a lyrical genius and incredibly smart. He makes you want to just quote everything he says. I know that his music has touched my heart and I always wonder where would k-hiphop be without him. I don't even have enough words to describe him. He's just amazing. Pure talent. Genius. Everything he's ever composed is just beautiful. He saved me.

Tablo is amazing, he's been through so much and his music is just great. His raps are meaningful, as well. He's very talented, love the guy%

Changed how I listened to music. Changed my life. Got me into Stanford.

128South Park Mexican

His lyrics Hated by those who censor music he understands the pain every thug, hustler, gangbanger and every person who like the realest music already made 2 albums in prison and sold many hmm I wonder why know you tell who else did that!?

Spm is the best and will be the best rappers alive he's speaks the truth that's why he is in prison because he was getting so big the Illuminati stopped him from that if he was out there right now he would be so big he was the 5 on billboards with no radio play no promo nothing that's how good he is free spm

Produces his own beats, wicked flow, & keeps it real with the people, even though pomt blank period. He doesn't get radio play; he still is the BEST RAPPER ALIVE!

How? So far down

130B-Real (Cypress Hill)

What is going on I see almost no Latin Rapper only Immortal Technique, Big Punisher and Few But without B-Reals rap music would be different he made a big impact to the rap industry why would any one disagree.

B-Real's flow isn't from this world! In my opinion one of the best rappers of all time!

The greatest, a unique, great technique, ass blow, big flow and sane for the brain!

A classic, he changed rap.

131Lil Boosie

Lil Boosie is the realest rapper there is. He is the only rapper that can express his feelings like 2pac. He also might be in jail for life or in death row, for something he might not have even done. He deserves to be #1 on this list. I'm not even from the ghetto but he has the ability to make me feel for him like nobody else. Nothing would be better than Lil Boosie being free. Please vote for him and support him!

Honestly, as far as southern rappers boosie WAS the best doing it until he went to prison. Forget wayne's "brain surfing" and t. i. 's commercialism. boosie goes hard no matter where your from. def the pac of the south.

Why in the hell is lil bosie #45? Are you seriously saying that John Cena is a better rapper? This is some bs this whole list needs changing!

Lil boosie was probably one of the greatest rappers back then he in jail now everybody wants the people to let him go

132T-PainFaheem Rashad Najm, better known by his stage name T-Pain, is an American recording artist and music producer from Tallahassee, Florida.

T-Pain should be much higher than this, at least top 20. He raps, he sings, he truly does it all. From club bangers to love songs to hood representers, this guy truly is one of a kind. He has really changed as an artist as well which is proven by his most recent album, Revolver.

Tpain is the best at everything all y'all are haters just cause his music makes sense like if I had to party or chill with one of these artist it would be tpain and he goes so hard in some songs I wish I could meet tpain honestly He's the best he needs too be in at least top 20s come on like for real

More #1's than the Beatles speaks for itself

What t-pain at 134 Why?

133Bizarre

Most memorable rapper in D12 behind Eminem and Proof. He has a not mean or teasing, but a taunting, deep voice. Amityville is a perfect example.

His flow and his looks are ok But the funny thing is Dr Dre was going to pick Bizzare over Eminem and luckily he chose em but they later created a rap band D12

He is one of the greatest lyricists and indie rappers of the second generation of hip-hop. If he was a rapper in the 90's he would definitely be OG.

He's A Cool Rapper & Got Good Lyrical Skills!
He Also Got a Real Good Word Play!
& I Love His Flow!

137GrandMaster Flash

The message song is part of the RAP history. :) SOO we must appreciate his work.

Are you stupid he g- masta flash should be in the top 10 the message that song great

Wow, 196. This guy is part of rap history. He is good as anyone else on this list, his style revolutionised hip-hop and influenced all these guys. The only reason he's down here is that he isn't as famous as Wu-Tang, or Eminem.

Created the hip hop genre

138Diddy

This is the biggest disgrace of a list I've ever seen. Diddy, the richest rapper alive with hits like "I need a girl" "Missing you" "Ass on the floor" and "Coming home" plus his role in the bad boys? He should be pushing top ten like actually.

He is not top 50 at all things are too hot! He made madd money off one hit mans! But he probably is better tah 206 HA HA I wont give him my vote though!

P. Diddy in the house! From being Biggie's homie to doing amazing hit singles. Just listen to "Get Buck In Here."

I think his an idiot

140A$AP RockyRakim Mayers, better known by his stage name ASAP Rocky, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Harlem, New York.

Top 10 of all time and this is no particular order. ICE CUBE, LL, BIG DADDY KANE, 2PAC, KOO G RAP, NAS, Eminem, RAKIM, CHUCK D, AND KRS1. I know you are saying why is Biggie not on this list. The simple fact is Big didn;t have enough material, great rapper thou. There are a few more rappers that could be added to this list. REDMAN, SLICK RICK, BROTHA LYNCH, YUKMOUTH, E-40, SNOOP, TECH9, MC. REN, D.O. C AND MOST OF THE RAPPERS FROM WU-TANG. I know you are saying how is Jay-z not on here neither, well to answer that Jay-z rapped about another person's life and secondly Jay-z bit a lot of rhymes off of snoop and big

How the hell did EVERY SINGLE person who has seen this forget about asap? He's got some mad rapping skills and an original style of clothing. I think he is a great rapper yet sometimes you cannot understand what he is saying.

LONG LIVE A$AP! Suddenly he became the best rapper for me, Young and Fresh Gold boy

Asap is good he spits hot fire
