My Top 10 Favourite Rappers

i’ve been a fan of rap/hip-hop since first listening to ‘The Eminem Show’ back in 2002. Rap can get a bad … ‘rap’, due to the subject matter of some artists and the terrible music written by others. If you really get into hip-hop/rap however you will realise that the best artists in these genres are true poets and have a talent which most rock/blues/country/metal/pop etc artists cannot posses. So here are my top 10 personal favourite rappers, in no order … other than 1.

Special mention goes to Snoop Dogg. I can’t justify having him on this list for technique or lyrical content/complexity …. but he’s SNOOP DOGG, gotta have him mentioned somewhere.
