The rankings should be focused less on pure rapping talent and more focused on the quality as well as quantity of good/decent/not automatic-skip-on-ipod songs put out by the artist over the past year leading into the new year.
I'm a big Nas fan but he really shouldn't be on the list. Other than nasty and his verse on Ghetto Dreams, what other songs has he put out to make him worthy to be mentioned?(No hate, please educate) There are many other artists out there who have dropped more material that I would consider to be hotter.
Eminem shouldn't be there either. The only time I hear his new music is when I play 2k12.
Ghetto Dreams was one of the biggest songs of last year.
nasty sh*tted on like half the sh*t that came out last year. No one spit like that.
Plus, he released some songs on Distant Relatives, and dropped a verse on C4. What more you want?
