i think lists of your top 5 or 10, etc. are pointless

IMO i think there are too many factors to take into consideration. fair enough if you have a favourite, but a larger group of artists would be hard to sort out.

if you were to judge it on story telling, flow, best album or whatever then at least you have a base to judge your opinion

anybody agree with me?

and yes i completely agree with u onemic now that i think of it but i guess top 10 lists mostly show personal preferences even tho it would be much better if we did compare rappers with a standard its hard to people who feel 2Pac is the greatest of all time will always say that he is u kno what i mean

^I agree. I tried to come up w/ a formula when making my top list.
Consiciouness
Creativeness
Flow
Delivery
Style
Lyricism
Content
Originality
Adaptation (ability to change flows)
But to be honest the list could be never ending. But based on about 7-8 categories Jay-Z falls out of my top 5. I love the dude but he falls short on content, originality, consciousness and a couple of other things.

2Pac is nicer than most think. His content is so helter skelter it's hard to judge it but the only weak point to the guy is his lyricism. And I guess nowadays people have that as there top criteria. 2Pac never had any punchlines or any quotables. But he's the single most imitated rapper ever (style, flow, content, the frickin word THUG!).

Damn, i've seen some good posts in here.

Maybe there aren't as many people w/ the "Big 4" in their top-5 as I thought.

And Tikyle, those are nice little categories that you use to judge you +YOU FEEL+ are the best rappers.

And Twizla, that's a dope a.ss list.

Damn, since everyone running off their top-5, I guess i'll do it too:

*Murs: This n*gga stays on his grind, and is probably one of the more busier men in hip-hop (Living Legends, "Felt" Projects, plus his own solo sh*t). Anyone that's heard "3:16" knows how dope this n*gga is.

*Phonte: Another underground n*gga on the grind. Versatile, w/ like 4-5 diff. flows. This n*gga got punches/lyrics for days. Ya''ll see when "The Minstrel Show" drops.

*Royce Da 5'9": Hungry, underappreciated rapper, and he knows that. That makes for top-notch verses everytime he spits. Better than your fav. indie lable rapper.

*Saigon: Yeah, yeah. He ain't dropped an album yet. So what. From what I have heard, his style fits just what I like to listen to. He'll be a force in the game once he gets a few LP's under his belt. "Warning Shots" was damn near +STREET+ classic.

*Eminem: Yeah, yeah again. "Encore" wasn't his best outing, but when he's motivated, he's lights out. He showed flashes of his old self on the new Clinton Sparks/Shdy mixtape. If he retires w/ "Encore" being his last album, that would be a damn shame. He needs to redeem himself.

Theres only a few 2pac albums i can really listen to. Out of .. what 14 albums, only 3 or 4 are really above average.




And he wasnt much of a lyricist, before anyone start poppin sh*t.

He only released 4 albums before he died.

The rest of the sh*t shouldn't tarnish his legacy!!
