10 Best Rappers:  When Eminem, says, “You better lose yourself in the music, the moment you own it, you better never let it go,” he took those words to heart. The Detroit emcee is by far one of the greatest lyricist to ever pick up a microphone. They way he puts words together is quite impressive; not to mention, he is one of the most top selling Hip Hop artists of all time.  He was also named by Rolling Stone as the king of Hip Hop, which pissed a few Hip Hop heads off.  With that being said, he at least deserves to be in the top-10 just for that. But besides all the accolades and album sales, Marshall Mathers is a battle tested emcee that earned  his way to the top by being a White man in a what originally was a Black man’s world. The greatest thing about Eminem is that he is not afraid to let us into his world and he never pretended to be something he is not and therefore his honesty has been the greatest contributor to his longevity.

    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.
