The Greatest Rapper of All-Time

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

This topic can’t be done enough. Well it can, and it is, but every year its fun to see what people are thinking. I included just about everyone who I feel is probably worthy of a vote or two. This isn’t a definitive list and I’m sure somebody is going to suggest Big Pun or 2Pac. And in the words of the great Eddie Murphy “Haha very funny muthafucka.”  Surely, none of those dudes have a shot at winning this when you have the god Rakim up in here. Voice, delivery, content, originality, influence, catalog and longevity. Think about that when voting for who you feel is the GOAT.

What you see is what you’ll hear, meaning no tracks uploaded on our end and limited to just our PC’s. We’ve spent some time sequencing the list, though shuffle is always the safe way to go.
