41 Lupe Fiasco Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur.

One of the only rappers that have countless videos and websites pages dedicated to trying to figure out what the meaning of his lyrics are. No other rapper has the wordplay ability to create such elusive metaphors. Truly one of the smartest to ever grab the mic. Although the I am willing to admit he does have a weak flow at times and doesn't have such great production to back him up.

Lupe should be at least top 15. I'd put him somewhere in the top ten or at least just outside of it...This list is almost as sad as my life is...

I understand lack of interest for the uneducated, but this man can be unstoppable if he wants to. Giving him the thumbs up.

42 Kevin Gates Kevin Gates Kevin Jerome Gilyard, better known by his stage name Kevin Gates, is an American rapper, singer, and entrepreneur from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

53 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

I personally didn't like rap music at first, or more than so... I am more of an R&B soul kinda gal. But when I first heard this guy, I some how fell for the rap game you know. I know people say there are many rappers who are greats and I give them their respect but for someone to change my perception for rap. I have to give Drake his props. I love him for that! I've been around since 93' so I've heard Jayz, BIG, nas & kanye just to name a few. No one has connected me more to rap than Drake.

Man I don't know how you guys don't like drake. man he is a good artists man I ain't gonna lie but all his songs are dope. to me drake is the number one and so is young money.

1)biggie. 2) drake 3) Nas 4)rakim
