    you need to re-do that list man. where is lupe fiasco, phonte from little brother? you got rick ross, dr. dre (i love him but most of his stuff is ghost written), timbaland? i call a re-do cause this list doesnt seem to be about actual lyricism

    This is list was made up of the readers nominations not mine, the only person I added was the first..Lil Wayne.

    If this was my list Ghostface, Method, Lord Infamous, and a load of others would have been on it.

    This is the reason why hip-hop is in the state it's in now. These cats need to do they homework. Greatest rappers alive and RAKIM, KRS-ONE, KOOL G. RAP, BIG DADDY KANE, JADAKISS OR EVEN STYLES P, aren't on the list I mean come on. Listen to some of these cats rhymes on youtube if you can't afford the CD's but I'm sure you'll agree. LMAO the cat from gym class heros is a clown not a rapper and three 6 mafia on the list for greatest rappers of all time. They entitled to their opinion but Helllllllllll No!
    We need to start revokin Hip-Hop passes

Something to say?
