as I'm fairly young I didn't really listen to enough of the late 80's NYC stuff to really get an impression on many of those guys.
- Slick Rick
- Nine other guys
Hey, this is probably a pretty good place for me to recommend the excellent comic series, Hip Hop Family Tree! A brilliant history of the earliest days of NYC hiphop featuring some great artwork and Russell Simmons' lisp.
Eminem imo (and I'm a huge hip hop head) is probably the most over-rated mainstream rapper (there are over rated underground rappers like Sage Francis) out there. He's famous partially for being white and partially for being outrageous at a time when it was still outrageous (ah, the early aughts, such naive times) to be outrageous.
Placing Tupac 4th on a best rappers ever list because his "impact and influence can't be denied" while having no place for Jay-Z or Kanye on that same list is the height of hilarity.
How are we defining lyricist?
1 Guru (not even close really)
2 Andre 3000 (I probably over-rate him due to sentimental reasons but his work on the early Outkast albums speaks for itself)
3 Nas (one of the best story tellers of all time)
4 Tupac (not really a huge fan of his flow, but impact and influence can't be denied, huge charisma)
5 Rakim (introduced the modern flow we now take for granted)
6 Del (unique style, ability to adapt his flow to any sort of beat)
7 Notorious (again, not a huge fan of his but flow and lyrics top notch)
8 Easy E (for my money some of the best flow of all time)
9 Kane (smooth)
10 MF Doom (almost single handedly brought underground hip hop into the limelight)
What about Flynt Flossy?
Does Busta Rhymes gain points or lose them for being unintelligible?
