Lupe Fiasco number one?!?! Kendrick lamar #3?!?! This list mustve been made by some Young Money fan or something. Lupe, Kendrick, Big KRIT are three of the few rappers that hit mainstream that are actually talking about something other than money and hoes. Sure they talk about them (lupe doesn't obviously but kendrick as KRIT do), but, they aren't limited to that one subject like most mainstream.
Apparently this retard has never actually listed to a Lupe Fiasco album because if he did, he would know that Lupe doesn't deserve to be anywhere on this list.
Most of my classmates listen to rap, I bet you none of them know who lupe fiasco is.
The rap industry is most likely to ruin itself.

I am deeply sorry for Kendrick as I thought this list was a Rappers that will RUN the Rap Industry. Anyways Kendrick should not be voted for more because he is one of the best rappers today. If the previous 5 best rappers were Tupac Biggie Eminem Nas Rakim, the new list of that would be Kendrick Lupe Joey JCole Logic.
How is kendrick on this? He is the best rapper in the game and is most comparable to the greats such as Tupac. Kendrick songs always tell a story and have a meaning.
So, what you're saying here is...Tupac ruined the rap industry? Kendrick revolutionized hip hop.
