Men, have you ever listened to Eminem? He can rhyme practically everywhere in his songs, he can make internal rhymes, multisyllable rhymes, and free rhymes so easily! When you listen to Lose Yourself or Till I Collapse, you understand that all those rhymes can't be there by chance, that's the work of a genius... Not to mention his ability in world plays (just listen to Vegas or So Far) and his AWESOME flows that changed so many times in the year and makes him a Rap God (damn, this song has more different flows than all drake's songs together)! Vote for Slim Shady guys! - Slim-Shady

2 Rakim Rakim

Rakim influenced the technic of barely all the MCs that came after him, he's the founder of modern rapping! He'said a master in word bending and metrical accents... And I have not talked about his rhyming skills yet! He can put rhyming words everywhere in the verse, men.. He's surely the king of MCs, you should vote for him - Slim-Shady

9 Tech N9ne Tech N9ne more.

He has many awesome flows and I like how he sometimes uses guitar in some of his songs like "I Am Everything". - Metalmatt

Are you kidding me? How is he so low ranked? - Basecube

I really don't know how Tech can be so low on this list.. hear Strangulation 1, E.B.A.H, Low, MMM...
He is one of the illest MC's ever.

Are you kidding me?!
Tech N9ne at number nine (no pun intended)
The only rapper I can think of that rhyme just as good as Eminem or sometimes even better is Tech N9ne
The best part about him is that despite his fast rapping,he can still rhyme a lot of words in a single line and still make it make sense
Listen to He's A Mental Giant in the second verse,he rhymes nearly every syllable in that verse mostly with the word "narcissistic"
That's just impressive
Throughout my history of listening to Eminem,I have never heard him rhyme nearly every syllable in a single verse and Tech N9ne does just that
Don't forget that he's also crazy fast and an expert at wordplay
I want to see him at number two in front of Eminem
He deserves that spot and anyone listening to this guy should know that
