Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce da 5'9") half of the hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil.
Rolling Stone ranked him 83rd on its list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, calling him the King of Hip Hop. Including his work with D12 and Bad Meets Evil, Eminem has had ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and 5 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and 13 worldwide.
I feel that he ought to be number 1 or close to it Fack is sometimes claimed as the worst song ever yet he has many great songs some of which are probably amongst the greatest ever.
He mostly puts out good songs, but he also has songs like "Fack" that are so bad to the point they sound like they're supposed to be bad.
Most of his songs are pretty good, but a few make me wonder what the fack he was thinking.
Very inconsistent. One day he puts up a masterpiece, the next, it's a complete mess.
2 Nicki Minaj
Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang".
Despite her controversial songs, Brent Staples from "The New York Times" claimed her to be 'the most influential female rapper of all time', presumably distinctive for her fast flow and her use of alter egos with Cockney accent.
She has endorsed Adidas, MAC Cosmetics and Pepsi.
Minaj has received ten Grammy-nominations throughout her career, and has won multiple awards including the Billboard's Women in Music 2011 Rising Star award.
Pretty bad overall in my opinion, but "Grand Piano" is definitely one of her better ones.
3 Chris Brown
Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in 2009.

He can give us some pretty good stuff from time to time like Forever, With You, All Back, Should've Kissed You and Say Goodbye, but then there's his not so great and downright awful stuff (look at me now, privacy, duces, I can transform ya, party)

From his beginning to this Christmas album, I didn't like his music at all. The melodies were not only bad, but annoying. His singing didn't sound too good either. On the holiday album he already had a more mature voice, but really, rap versions of Christmas songs is not what I want to hear to get in Christmas mood.
What I still like about his first albums is that he wrote most of the songs. Little people this young do that.
"Believe" was a good pop album. I think people hated it just because it was by Bieber and because he used the word "Swag" that people don't like because it's overused. It was really catchy though and well-sung with lyrics that are not bad, just what was to be expected from love songs. It's a guilty pleasure you can have lots of fun with.
I seriously consider "Purpose" one of the greatest albums of the 2010s. It is pop perfection. Perfectly written, perfectly produced, creative and experimental but still catchy and pop-ish enough to be easy to ...more
Yeah, his newer stuff is great, but his older stuff is bad.

What I absolutely love about them:
The meaningful songs, the dark spooky songs, the songs with that taste for a kill. I love such humorously dark characters as are those they portray on records.
Also some of their comedy tracks are funny in a dumb way.
Great Milenko and The Mighty Death Pop are great albums as a whole. Except for the song "House of Horrors". That is just nonsense and a waste of a great beat.
What I dislike:
Their pseudo-metal songs. The 2 Bizarre albums. The songs that have massive gross out humour. Some of their stupid sound effects. That they often can't stay focused.
