10 Best Rappers:  “Jigga, whats my muthafu*kin’ name.’ Next up is Jay-Z and this is a well deserved top 10 hip hop artist. As one of the highest selling Hip Hop artists of all time and most powerful moguls in the game, Jay-Z is a true representation of the American Dream and Hip Hop.  He embodies the rags to riches story in all it’s essence and he has done it all with the use of his pen or lack of pen for that matter. Just as BIG didn’t write anything down, neither does Jay-Z and that speaks volumes in regard to the lyricism he exudes on most of his songs.  With ‘Reasonable Doubt” and “The Blueprint” both labeled as classic albums and the fact that he is still highly relevant and selling out stadiums in his early 40’s is almost unheard of in Hip Hop.  Not too many rappers can boast about having Obama’s phone number,  bringing Oprah to the Marcy projects where it all started for him, and being married to arguably the biggest female artists of this generation. Not only are these lyrics but these are absolute truths which speak to the power behind his words.
