37 Three 6 Mafia
38 Hopsin Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California.

Hopsin is probably the realist there is, his music speaks to me in a way no other artists do. Tech N9ne and Eminem are close to 1st. Hopsin just isn't understood as well. His music, to most people, is too raw for them to handle. I feel he should at least be top 15-10 because he is the realist. I do believe he isn't the best rapper but his music has a special place in my heart. HOP for DAYS. Peace!

Deserves to be way higher than 37... the fact that pretty much all his career is self made plus the flow puts him in the top 10 for me. His lyrics are critical, and his rhymes are awesome.
