10 Best Rappers:  Last but not least is the Queens emcee, Nas.  There is not other artist on the planet that can say he lyrically assaulted Jay-Z for all the world to witness in a song called “Ether” that literally people in the Hip Hop community use as a verb now to described a scenario when someone gets there ass lyrically handed to them. With arguably the greatest pure Hip Hop album of all time, “Illmatic” and the classic “Stillmatic,” Nas has earned his stripes. Nas is a lyrical genius that pens verses that make you rewind the song just to catch the metaphors, knowledge, and wisdom he tends to drop. Although some may say, he has had some dud albums, you can’t ever deny his voice. That raspy street scholar flow absolute makes people stand up and take notice. With the release of his most recent album, “Life is Good,” Nas displays not only lyricism but also a sincere honesty that seems to be the secret behind Hip Hop longevity. Nas constantly proves over and over again that all he needs is “One Mic.”

    Same ole same old school east coast bias. Its all a matter of opinion. Ask people from the south and the list would be totally different. Even the your east coast fans would have a different list.

      Its funny your say that. Actually a panel chose these rappers. The panel consisted of a DJ from North Carolina. A Texas based Hip Hop magazine owner. A Chicago producer. A St. Louis female fan of hip-hop, An Australian rapper, A Chicago based freelance music writer, a West Coast radio personality, and a female R&B songwriter from the Bay. We started with a list of 50 rappers and narrowed it down from there.
