Best Rappers of the '90sDelThaRealist
The Top Ten
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.
R.I.P. Tupac Shakur. You are missed. Great albums like 2pacalypse Now, Me Against The World, and Thug Life.

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 Love
Just listen to dead wrong you'll know why
Incredible skillsV 19 Comments
Ice cube started rapping with N.W.A now look at him still making music even movies
Completely original, still doing it too.
Best rapper out of them all, realest of them all. No other rapper can compete with cube cept pac big and nas
Should be number 2V 5 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
The greatest of all time.. the real thugV 17 Comments
Nas holds the greatest hip hop album of all time in Illmatic. He also holds several other classics in Stillmatic, It Was Written, and The Lost Tapes. God's Son and Life Is Good are also excellent albums that will at some point be up for discussion as classics. No other MC has managed to rhyme at this level after being in the game so long. His lyrics are both technically impressive, as well as being incredibly creative. (Fetus, Rewind) At this point, Nas should be in every head's top 3 MC's of all time.
Powerful lyrics, I can, on mic, best songs eva.
Best rapper ever and best rap album songs like halftime ny state of mind all classics
NAS should be number 1 in my opinion, but where's the love for my favorite GURU from GANGSTARR and where's TRIBE? SMHV 9 Comments
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 rappers
#1. The man's a genius. He's the Best of the Best. King of Rock 'N Roll is Elvis Presley, King of Pop is Michael Jackson. Eminem is THE KING OF RAP! Dr. Dre is THE KING OF BEATS! Their creativity together is untouchable.V 9 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
He is the greatest producer in hip hop and has made some dope songs such as "The Watcher" and "Nuttin But A G Thang", he hasn't released lots of albums but every album he has made has changed the next generation of hip hip. The Greatest!V 5 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!
dopeV 7 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.
One of the best ever to be honest reasonable doubt,black album and blueprints were amazing and I've noted his views in upliftment of black as a community and I am not even black.V 2 Comments
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!
Definitely underrated and gone too soon. He would’ve been a lot more influential and mainstream if he were still alive today, in my opinion.V 15 Comments
Better than all! Still Balling!
He is the best rapper of all time and is cool and he is also ll
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
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
One of the most talented MCs - jameshoward
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
U guys no matter blackc nor white better show respekV 1 Comment
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 to
WHY SO LOW EVEN EAZY E SAID REN IS WAY BETTER THAN HIM AND CUBEV 2 Comments
Are Diddy and Puffy Combs the same person?
Why is Sean combs on this list as puffy combs and diddy? - Thicc_Neeson
Should be in the top ten.
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
Best Wu Tang member - jameshoward
The best rapper alive in my opinion
He ain't called the genus for nothing. This man is a lyrical genius, he has the right voice, the right flow, and sick beats, love that classic New York accent. Easily top 3.
Unmatchable lyrics and word play one of the greatest and the best of the Wu tang clan
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.
Lil Wayne is good to he rapped with m&m
Lil wayne a lil bitch
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
Method man was the first member of the wu tang to make the first solo album called TICAL he has to be at least close to the top 10
This whole order is messed up meth should be in the top 10
Meeds to be top 10
Damn Number 30 Wow Meth Is Dope And Shoudnt Be 30V 1 Comment
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.
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
Big Pun is literally a musical genius. His flow is amazing and his rhymes are mind blowing. Super Lyrical, You Ain't A Killer, and 100% were all amazing songs and maybe he isn't 1st, but he should definelty be ahead of Canibus, Lil' Wayne (why the f*** is he on this list) and Busta Rhymes - ILikeChocolateMilk
Their lyrics is dope they should be number 2 after 2pac Biggie
Pun at 30 and the mobb at 32?!? Wow...
Mobb deep should be number 2 out of this list with nas number 1 queensbridge finest
If "P" double isn't in your top 10 then either your ears were closed half of your life or this is a joke lmao
What we all know 50 belongs on the top 10!
Top 5 dead or alive and that's just off 1 LP
Low end theory speaks for itself
Should be ranked way higher. Had mad flows, inspirational, and S/O to his sick beats DJ Premier
He should be further up
Coolio Is Awesome
Mystikal is a beast ass rappers
Should be a higher score
Top 3 for all rap
HOW IS GANG STARR ALL THE WAY AT 52?! These greates need to be in the top 5, breh!
Will smith is a dumbass
Best flow with snoop and goes hard
Lyrically untouchable nobody beats the biz
Y'all ever listened to just a friend?
