Eminem has sold over 300 million records 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.

There is only one person who would give him a hard time and that's biggie smalls.
Just listen to Eminem in his songs. Then listen to his freestyles. You will see how good he is

His freestyles are better then his full songs

He's the greatest rapper ever, but Notorious B.I.G. would give him a hard flight

2 Big L Big L Lamont Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999), best known by his stage name Big L, was an American hip hop recording artist, born and raised in Harlem, New York City, New York. Coleman embarked on his career in rapping, with the hip hop trio, Three the Hard Way. His first notable appearance came more.

Big l spits faster, harder and better lyrics then eminem and anybody else when it comes to the free style game, if you listen to his free style with jay z you will understand what I mean. Jay z is a nasty freestyle atrist, but big l goes so fast and is so good that he makes him look slow and bad in comparison. Lamont Coleman #1

Are you kidding. For all of you guys who voted Eminem, go listen to some big l and tell me what you think. Big l rest in peace

his freestyles tell stories, flow perfectly, rhym perfectly, and straight up make oppents look stupid. RIP to the best freestyler EVER, bar none.

Old school freestyle = Real rap.
Get that 8 mile bull low

3 Notorious B.I.G. Notorious B.I.G. Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known by his stage name, The Notorious B.I.G (a.k.a. Biggie Smalls), is consistently ranked as one of the best rappers of all time. The Notorious B.I.G was born May 21, 1972, he was born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 24 The Notorious B.I.G was murdered more.

Where brooklyn at! He is the best freestyler ever, how can Eminem be the first, biggie is a lyrical genius, the lyrics to his freestyle has deep meaning too... Rapping freestyle right from childhood has made him the finest freestyler... He would kill Eminem in freestyle.. If not in his songs

I love Eminem and I feel that he should be good against Biggie but I feel that Biggie is the greatest freestyler of all time. Em has some really good freestyles but when I hear Biggie, he is the most talented rapper of all time.

He doesn't compromise his flow, that's the beauty of Biggie's freestyles. Just listen to Where Brooklyn At

Only Em and Proof could MAYBE come close in a battle

5 Proof Proof DeShaun Dupree Holton better known by his stage name Proof, was an American rapper and actor from Detroit, Michigan. During his career, he was a member of the groups 5 Elementz, Funky Cowboys, Promatic and most notably, D12. He was a close childhood friend of rapper Eminem, who lived on the same block, more.

How is proof not at least top 5 let alone top 10? Have any of you heard his freestyle with eminem on westwood? That 4th verse is mind blowing, "I know the truth so now I'm baring all, I made R Kelly confess he stole his first style from Aron Hall, a wack mc with a gun, I'm not one, when you see Kurt Kobain tell home bring back my shotgun" amazing just amazing

Even Eminem admits proof was a better freestyler than him. GOAT.

Best freestyle rapper to ever live

He's at least number two theirs no one better then em and him

6 Lil Snupe

Snupe didn't get a chance to blow up. He was 18 for a week and was going to be if not already the best ever

Even though he had a short rapping career of 3 years, most of his songs were based off freestyles. Snupe been freestyling since he was 6 and it is very rare to find freestyle artist like lil snupe in the 2010s Era with lots of potential. In a song he admitted he is freestyle king because there was no one to freestyle like the wacky rappers we have today.

Definitely should be in the top 5. I've never even heard him stumble

Would've been the best rapper of all time. The time he had he shined, still had a lot to prove.

8 Jay-Z Jay-Z Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name JAY-Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

Jay z is the hottest

9 Meek Mill Meek Mill Robert Rihmeek Williams, better known by his stage name, Meek Mill, is an American hip hop recording artist.

Look I don't really know why I voted for him but I've been listening to him since I was a little kids so yeah he's been one of my childhood rapper since I was a baby and my dad always used to go to all the concerts and stuff yeah but he was a great rapper

All of his freestyles are straight fire. Don't believe me, go watch his moment for life freestyle on youtube.

Meek Mill's freestyles are better than most song of other rappers

I'd put him top 5

10 King Los

King Los is amazing off the top. His vocabulary is insane and he flows seamlessly between instrumentals. He has two of the best 5 fingers of death freestyles and Sway ranks him with some of the greatest rappers to touch the mic. He should be at the top of this list. Eminem can freestyle but not as good as Los. Kendrick is also a great freestyler but he can't do it on the level Los.

King los is back at 36 but people that have LITERALLY never actually freestyled (pac, Dr. Dre, Kanye) off the top are top 10 just because you all recognize the name. Stop conforming to what people tell you are the best rappers and listen for yourself. Use your own brains. And when people ask for your top 5 give them YOURS not the typical "biggie, Eminem, Tupac, etc". If you think that so be it, but King los is the best freestyler since biggie, and I would even say he could out freestyle biggie timewise.

This dude is raw. Not many people can go in the booth without pen and paper and rip apart the mic for 10 even 20 minutes off the top of the head without it sounding redundant. This vocabulary is huge and his content is extensive. Incredibly underrated.

The best. Should be number 1

The Contenders

11 Eyedea

EYEDEA! 99 scribble jam champ, blaze battle winner, I mean come on if you win scribble then you should be up here. Look him up on YouTube

Eyedea never lost a battle. Eminem is good, but there are a lot of people who are better then him. Eyedea is also much better lyrically and can come back with better lines then most.

Eyedea was the greatest battler there ever was. People who don't think so just didn't get his punchlines.B.I.G. is my all time favorite rapper, but he doesn't have enough freestyle battles out there to consider him the best

Https://, the man's insane

He raps the truth no make up lines

He is meant to be on top 3.his lyrics are inspirational

Definitely in the Top 5 at least.

14 Canibus

He destroyed LL Cool J (come on people it isn't about how its produced but how its lyrically done)
He (in my opinion) destroyed Eminem because everyone is just saying' things as "Eminem didn't really battle him"
YES HE DID! AND HE LOST that's why he turned his ass to mainstream and ghostwriting while Canibus is working real hard down in the underground with no producers at all.
And now Bus is going after Royce 5'9 (Yes he dissed him real bad and Royce didn't answer)
Canibus deserves to be up at the top because he is destroying every rapper.
Dizaster is NEXT!

In my opinion, THE greatest freestyler out there... and I've heard Eminem spit fresh on the mic.

Seriously, Canibus makes albums irrelevant to the hip-hop industry with his lyrics.

The illest right now... there's no one on this planet capable of damaging him... but he did succumb to the hands of his alter ego in the song Rip Vs Poet Laureate

As he said his lyrics too intelligent for the average block hustler.

15 Dr. Dre Dr. Dre Andre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

16 Tupac Tupac Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was an American rapper and actor born on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, New York. Tupac sold over 75 million records worldwide and has been referred to in multiple major publications such as Rolling Stone as one of the greatest music artists of all time. 2Pac was more.

You kidding me! Ik Tupac ain't that good of a freestyle rapper but he can beat meek and lil Wayne. To me Tupac ain't the best freestyle rapper but he's the greatest rapper.

Tupac influenced me to love rap and I started rapping because of listening to his music. His freestyles will always be epic

What Can I say bout him!

In freestyle rap he is 4sure better than no4 down. Plus he is the biggest selling rapper of all time, releasing most of his hit between j's 95 to 97 get it? Listen to him talk in interviews, throw in a beat and you'll c wt I'm talkn' bout (sounds like he's freestyling)

18 Ludacris Ludacris Christopher Brian "Chris" Bridges, better known by his stage name Ludacris, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and actor.

He is a freestyle genius damn it!

Dirty south will go ham

19 Kid Cudi Kid Cudi Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio.

The fact that rappers like Lil Wayne are getting more hype than this guy is beyond me. Compare their westwood freestyles and TRY to change my mind. You won't be able too by the way. Cudi is a lyrical genious.

kid cudi is an upcoming phenomenon, freestyling is just the beginning.

give him a chance, Westwood freestlye -

He has the dopest freestlye. if you hate it, your parents may have dropped you as a baby.

He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. He also performs as the frontman of rock band Japanese Cartoon more.

Lupe Fiasco I one of the best freestyle rapping in world. Almost all of his songs have a meaning. That's why he's the 5th best in the world. No jokes about that. I you want proof battle him you are self! 1

His flow is unreal, but more impressive is that his freestyles have meaning and it's not just different versions of 'I'm great and...kill people'

I've been listening to his spits on radio while he freestyles and he's a rap genius! He's after nas I give him number 3

Not in the topten because not enough people have heard his freestyles my top 3 is Eminem, lupe and king los in no special order, they are all sick off the top!
