May 22, 2013

Do you love rap? Then you probably have an idea of who you think drops the best beats and has the slickest rhymes - check out the Top 10 Rappers!

No.10: Snoop Dogg

Okay, so he may be going by a new name these days (Snoop Lion), but Snoop Dogg at his best embodies everything that is cool about rap.

No.9: Missy Elliott

Nobody sounds quite like Missy Elliott, and while she's been happy to work more behind-the-scenes in the last few years, no one in the industry can deny her talent.

No.8: Grandmaster Flash

You can't talk about great rappers without going right back to where it started - Grandmaster Flash was the real thing, a pioneer in what would become a musical genre that dominated the airwaves in years to come.

No.7: Notorious B.I.G.

Although he died early, The Notorious B.I.G. left a major impression on rap fans and peers, producing some of the catchiest tunes to ever make it on the radio.

No.6: Nicki Minaj

As part of the Young Money crew, Nicki Minaj burst onto the scene like a breath of fresh air, she comes complete with several personalities and enough sass to hold her own against the best divas.

No.5: Drake

Unlike most rappers, Drake started first on a Canadian TV show and then broke into the mainstream music scene, instantly charming listeners with his thoughtful lyrics on love, life and the emptiness of fame.

No.4: Kanye West

When Kanye dropped his first two albums College Dropout and Late Registration, he introduced audiences to a whole new sound and had everyone pressing repeat on every song.

No.3: Jay-Z

Jay-Z has made the transition from a kid from Brooklyn selling albums out of his car to one of the most successful rappers (and businessmen) in the world!
