Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age.

Sea Breezy has so many hits... why is Kendrick lamar at 10? Kendrick lamar, drake and jay cole are the most overrated hip hop/ rap artists of today's hip hop world. Chris Brown deserves to be higher

Chris brown is the best I love him and I want him to be the king of hip hop

Wait! am even shocked to see this. This man has hit the board for like a million times than I can remember, I may not like his way of singing but I surely love his music

Nice steps, but mostly admired because he's a young 'yellow boy' a.k.a. light skinned and as they say 'easy on the eyes'. But talent is taught to him, he comes with nothing unique of his own. Credit for doing well with what others teach him though'. But no originator - just a duplicator! B-

68 Grandmaster Flash and Furious Five

My favourite hip hop act of all time.
I generally don't like modern hip hop.
It's all about the 70s and 80s for me, and Grandmaster Flash is the king of hip hop in my eyes.
He invented using the turntable as an instrument.

This Is One Of The Best Rappers Ever, He Should Be In The Top 10

78 Lil' Kim Lil' Kim Kimberly Denise Jones, known by her stage name Lil' Kim, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, model, and actress.

She is one of the most amazing rappers ever. I can't believe there is barely a female rapper here and the queen is at a low ranking. She deserves a higher rank and so do Queen Latifah, the Brat, Foxy Brown, Eve, Missy Elliott and even Nicki Minaj.

Best female artist in music history

79 Obie Trice Obie Trice Obie Trice is an American rapper and songwriter. He is most known for his time spent signed to Shady Records.

He had a 2x platinum album without it ever being on the radio! That's talent.

He had his 2 platnums because of eminiem promoting him listen to the begining of with out me and the end of drips and like every other song of his

80 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.

Cudi doesn't try to flex or front he is cudi and everyone knows it. He genuinely wants to help other people and make the world better through his own music. He is an amazing songwriter an amazing rapper an amazing producer and overall an amazing musician which is something almost none of these other rappers have. He can make club bangers he can make smoke songs he's the pinnacle of acid rap (sorry chance) and he can snap and spit straight fire if he wants to but he doesn't always need to do what he wants with his music. Overall he is making the most important music in the game besides maybe Kendrick and the underachievers in my opinion I can see him being one of the most remembered artists of this generation

Literally THE best. Lil Wayne can't even compete with Cudi. His music is unique and really has meaning. He makes his own songs and they're really catchy.

A joke that he's not too 10
