Best Rappers of the '90sDelThaRealist
The Top Ten
I don't really listen to rap but he's amazing
R.I.P ghetto king of rap, 2pac stays in my heart forever, no rapper poured as much emotion and compassion into lyrics and delivery as makavelli.
Tupac Is the greatest rapper in all history.
Hitem'up, Thug luv, Troublesome 96', Ghost, California love, Dear mama, Soon As I Get home, Untouchables. And His Very Close Friend or They Call him Tupacs Cousin. Yaki Kadafi. R.I.P Both.
Number 1 The GOAT83 Comments
Best music ever
Lyrical talent, complex rhyme schemes, uncompromising flow, and frankly one of the deepest back stories makes Biggie the best rapper ever.
The Notorious Biggie Smalls in my eyes is Number 1. To me his a legend that will live forever in the hip hop world. Nobody has inspired me like B.I. G has, the flow, the raps, stories, background and of course the persona that the legend had. Biggie, your my idol, rest in peace my hero, One Love22 Comments
Not really popular until 1999 when the album 2001 came out and the slim shady lip but is the greatest rapper of all time
M&M the best rapper ALIVE, common' this guy saved our *sses, he came right after "death" of The Best Ever Rapper To Walk This Earth in Tupac, dope lyrics, great storyteller, mad flow "listen to rap god", sick beats, just common he should be further up the list. No Disrespect to those above but for me he should be.
Always the best, doesn't matter that his super fame came in the 2000's, The Marshall Mathers Lp was the second best rap album of all time, recovery is the 1st, Eminem rules ever decennia
I give it to Eminem to he is one of the fastest rappers10 Comments
The Godfather of Gangsta Rap, Eazy E is greatest.
It has been 19 years since this Legend's passing. I would call him the Grandfather of Gangsta rap. His contributions to the Gangsta rap community are phenomenal and perfected what is what we call Gangsta rap.
He may not of written his lyrics, but the way he rapped them and the sound of his voice and the music is why I vote Eazy
Eazy E was the greatest rapper of his time. He did write SOME lyrics. Everyone at Ruthless records would pitch in.17 Comments
Yeah, should be #2/3
Should be number 2
Ice cube started rapping with N.W.A now look at him still making music even movies
Completely original, still doing it too.6 Comments
Dre is the king of gangsta rap beats. I don't think anyone has ever made better beats then him, especially in his songs "Still Dre" "Forgot about Dre" and "Xxplosive".
"pioner of the rap scene"
Dr Dre may have not made a lot of songs, and when he did they were fire. He was behind the scenes on EVERYTHING. Should be top 4 at least
What the hell? Dre is a great producer but his rapping isn't very good at all - mediocre at best. Also he get's ghost writers to do it for him.5 Comments
Nas should be number 1 or if not number 2 after 2Pac. No way in hell should ice cube be higher.
Nas should be number 1 how are all these joke rappers ahead of him, this is madness!
Seriously! How the hell are Ice Cube and Eazy E higher than Nas? Nas straight up owned the 90's, he dropped two of the best albums in hip hop, and Eazy-E didn't even write his own lyrics! This is blasphemy! Biggie is also higher, which is also messed up, Biggie is nowhere near as good as Nas is and he is overrated because of his death. - DaWyteNight
Eazy-E sucks! Nas is better!13 Comments
Snoop doggy dogg dropped doggystyle a major sick album! Why ain't he ahead of AZ?!?!
Why is he not ahead of dre and eazy, his flow smashes them both together
Should be ahead of Eminem, should be in top 3!
For get snoop dog he thinks he,s bad not even from Compton7 Comments
Are you guys all stupid? Reasonable doubt was flawless and one of the best rap albums ever made along with illmatic, ready to die and all eyes on me. Jay should be easily top 3 if not number one. There's no way in hell canibus, puffy, snoop and so many more should be above jay
Jay z should be in the top 10 Em is one of the best but he only released one album in the 90s and it was 1999 so he shouldn't be on here
Jay is the total package of an ideal mc. The voice lyrics unorthodox flow and records sold. He took this rap thing far beyond anyone! Wether you like him or not you can't ignore the fact that jay-z is your favorite rapper's favorite rapper.
Jay-z should be at least three or four.. You gotta be kidding me #10?3 Comments
Better than all! Still Balling!
He is the best rapper of all time and is cool and he is also ll
He's alright but nothing special - DaWyteNight
Big L is one of the best rappers of all time. If it weren't for his life ending early he would have continued to influence the rap world for years to come. Some of the fastest flows around
Big L RIP
Big L is the #1 in my book. Undefeated, his lyrical finesse and gritty eloquence define what it means to be a dope rapper and no one except Shady comes close to being able to illustrate a story like Big L does... So well that you can feel the dirt under your nails and its like you're right there with him, climbing the stairs to the hotel room in Jersey to ambush his cheating girlfriend and perpetrators.. He's so bomb he still gives me chills. - beans06
pure talent! Lifestylez ov the Poor and Dangerous is one of the best rap albums ever made! just NY repping hip hop at its best with no crap track!
Big L was one of the best rappers, period. His flow was amazing, and his wordplay was on top. He was never considered one of the best but I promise he's worth listening to. Especially "Fed Up Wit' The Bulls***". He was undefeated and still is to this day.15 Comments
Rakim's word play and near and inner rhymes really pulled him out from any other rapper into one of the best. Even with his latest album in 2006, he still rules the M.I. C
What Rakim should be top 4.
A best rappers list and Thought is not in the top 10? This is madness. - DaWyteNight
Guru all the way down here? SMH - DaWyteNight
Should be ranked way higher. Had mad flows, inspirational, and S/O to his sick beats DJ Premier
This isn't MC Ren this is who played him in NWA but He is still a dope rapper
He is so underrated and cube eazy and dre got all the attention at nwa but ren rapped a lot
Underrated. He gave a huge contribution to NWA and was hugely ignored because of the rivalries between Eazy and Dre. Also made one of the best albums in hip hop:
Shock of the hour
I know he was apart of it to3 Comments
Are Diddy and Puffy Combs the same person?
You can't sleep on The D.O.C., he had flow back in the day and was before his time! He had substance, flow, and bomb beats. Believe that.
D.O.C. on the set we're kicking fresh y'all
They are probably the best rap group from the south and with albums such as Aquemini and ATLiens in the 90's they proved that. They were extremely influential and ahead of their time and they should at least deserved to be mentioned when speaking of the "Golden Age" of hip hop. When it comes to rap, Andre 3000 was an amazing MC in the 90's and Big Boi was very good as well. Although they are a duo, you should at least add one, and if not both, for they are true pioneers of the Dirty South.
Some of the sickest beats definitely should be up at the top above jay z songs like players ball and southernplaysticcadilacmuzik were amazing songs. Thank you Big Boi and Andre for the real rap you and wu tang are my favorites
Mos definitely top 10
I cannot belive they are this far down. Some of the best lyrics you will ever find. I am very dissapointed.1 Comment
The group that got me into the rap scene with black Sunday in the early 90s, B real's unique style and muggs producing made cypress hill stand out from the crowd and got me listening to other rap gods such as pac, BIG, nas, jigga, snoop, DMX and Eminem, all could be top spot depending on your personal style in what was truly a golden era for hip hop and I thank the Hill clan for introducing me into the world of rap music
Favorite songs come from cypress
The man should be top 10 at least if not top 5. He's better than Biggie, Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Ice Cube, and he's definitely much better than Eazy and Wayne. - DaWyteNight
He's far better than Lil Wayne to start off and he's just a lyrical genius, amazing flow, great rhyming techniques, word play and basically in general a great MC. He deserves a top 10 spot and that's no doubt, all his tracks are far better than most rappers.
Should be nearer the top RIP
Great lyricist1 Comment
Amazing rapper! Busta appeals to all genres in my opinion! One of the best alternative rappers ever, and extremely intelligent lyrically. Nuthin but love
THIS NIQQA BE SEXY
Why is Sean combs on this list as puffy combs and diddy? - Thicc_Neeson
Should be in the top ten.
AZ is one of the most underrated and under appreciated rappers ever. It's hard to believe that Dre and Eminem beat him on this list. Tsk tsk
For sure the best that never seemed to make it big
AZ should be #4
One of the most talented MCs - jameshoward
The best rapper alive in my opinion
Just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the mans name
He's flow was amazing he HAS to be higher!
One of the fastest rappers of all time
Best Lyricist ever. No other rapper on this list can compete with his flow and his word selection.
Compare to some that are above him I don’t think he was that bad along with Juvenile should at least be in the
Get this douche off this list he doesn't deserve it
How is Lil Wayne above Rakim, Wu tang Clan and Rakim, how is he even on this list.
