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

He's perfect

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.

Big L had the best punchlines, more lyricism and better flow. Eminem sold more records and lived on longer so he showed all he got. Big L lived a short life but proved his loyalty, he would destoroy today's rappers

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

This man killed the rap game! And in a way still does today Watch is diss freestyle he made when he was a teen on the streets. This man should definatelty be No1 or 2!

4 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

This kid gave it his all coming up without a father to guide him and living in the struggle he expresses everything from his past life, he was always rapping for his city and his mother. this kid had a lot of heart and potential. one of the greats.

5 Kendrick Lamar Kendrick Lamar

Come on man he deserves to be in top 10... !

I mean look at how terrorizes the rap game today

I'd keep moving Kendrick up in this... he does this gnarly flashcard freestyle and it sounds like he wrote because it's got punch lines, metaphors, jokes, and it's just fire af like all his freestyles - paolosecci

Kendrick is the future =nas number 2

7 Meek Mill

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

Why is Meek Mill not #1, when he came back from jail in January, his freestyle mixtapes were fire

8 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.

Definitely should be higher up. He creates crazy, off the wall rhymes with dead end words and never slips up. Watch his Sway in the Morning rap... Definitely an OG with much better bars than his peers, written or in a freestyle. Easily top 5 all time behind maybe em and maybe kendrick

9 Common Common Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., better known by his stage name Common, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, film producer and poet from Chicago, Illinois.
10 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

Eyedea was number 1 fo sho

The Contenders

11 Nas Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

Seriously, 32nd! He should be in the top 5. One of the best of all time.

He raps the truth no make up lines

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

12 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

Canibus' only competition is himself since no other rappers have a skill level even close to his.

13 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

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

2pac is Tupac!
He deserves to be in top 5!

2pac will always and forever be the greatest of all time he went tree anybody in the game.

17 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 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
