The Greatest Rapper Alive Battle : Nomination Round


So aside from the Power25 album list I had another idea. A lot of rappers consider themselves "The Greatest Rapper Alive", but few actually do anything to prove it. So here's my idea, let's take the battle to the people. This will be a really cool tournament to determine who the greatest rapper alive is according to you guys. This round is for nominations only, no need to explain why you nominate a certain rapper, just their name.

So I'll put in the first nomination since I know it's going to show up eventually. Let's make this interesting, don't think for a second that because an artist hasn't released a thousand mixtapes that he can't win this thing.

I will be updating the entrants as the nominations come in.

Current Entrants will be cut off at 20

  • Lil Wayne
  • Eminem
  • Nas
  • Andre 3000
  • E-40
  • Max Coke
  • Rick Ross
  • Chamillionaire
  • Kanye
  • Jay-Z
  • Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes)
  • T.I
  • 50 Cent
  • Twista
  • Lauryn Hill
  • Common
  • LL Cool J
  • Snoop
  • Dr. Dre

40 comments so far.

    This is just for nominations, no need to nominate an artist more than once.

    The Game


    Pharoahe Monch

    If these 3 aren't on the nominations list then it isn't a real competition in my opinion.

    And LL Cool J???

    Are you fcuking kiddin me? lol

    I Like weezy's Flow and the way he sounds but he's like cam'ron - they both just say words that rhyme without making any sense what so-ever.

    Pharoahe monch should deffo be on the list.

    Sorry guys but it would be pretty impossible to pull off exactly what I wanted with the amount or lack there of feedback.

    Immortal Technique... wow ya'll picked some WAAAACK ass rappers no joke.. sure some of them have great star power, but honestly, i can name a better rapper for every single one of those dudes or chicks on that list. Jae Millz, Immortal Technique, Vakill... Lil wayne pleeease! People are so caught up on his rhymes which are SHIT!

    i dunno this is to main stream for my ears.. I would have to say these guys - Illbill is one of the greats, his brother Necro, along with Cage, Canibus, and Vinnie Paz. For the guys who are older and still rap ocasionaly i would go with Krs One( the rapper that open the door for many), Eric Sermon(open the doors for many), Redman, Methodman, LL Cool J, Nas, shiit many more look em up.. I bet none of my top names will get on the "GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE" List just because people are ignorant to the fact that they are not Main Stream but if you listen you will see...
