Eminem seems to be really popular in rap-related lists. Anyway, Eminem wins this, hands-down. Tupac is great too but Eminem has always been my favourite in rap. Best freestyler, best lyrics, best everything. Eminem is truly a lyrical genius. I have friends who hate rap but they love Eminem. He pretty much invented rap music. Eminem will always be my favourite rapper, no matter what. I love him.

He's undoubtedly the best rapper. Even people who hate rap like him.

He is the best rapper frigging ever. Eminem makes sense in what he raps. Tupac is second even though he just cusses.

The ONE and ONLY Eminem!
