10) DMX- He should be a lot higher but he just had a lot of setbacks. DMX made a lot of good music i hope he has another run because he helped change the game.
9) Raekwon- Smooth mobster flow he has stayed true to his roots. He is the best member in Wu-Tang clan
8.) Jay Z- I don’t care how many records he sold because when B.i.G & 2pac was running the game an Nas & Mobb Deep was going hard he was two albums in an irrelevant. Dont get me wrong he has put out Great music over the years but he didn’t have much competition outside of DMX at the time
7) Eminem- His record sales are untouchable with a flow so mean he kills everyone on tracks even his family.
6) Big Pun- He was Hannibal with a pen deady & killed everything that featured him. He put out to good music in the time he was with us.
5) Jadakiss- The most lyrical emcee in the game now hands done. As he said he hasn’t spit a wack verse since the 90s
4) Notorious B.I.G – He put nothing but classics that everyone could vibe to while he was live. And to this day a lot people feel he is the best of all time
3) Big L He was really the first rapper to put Harlem on Camron Mase Mcgruff made debuts on his album along with Jay-Z. He put out a lot good freestyles in short time.
2) Nas- Very creative probably the most crafty with song concepts Rewind,I gave you power prime examples
1) 2Pac – Great poet even better work ethic to many classics to name too much music to listen to
