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.
