The debate over the greatest rappers of all-time wages on and now T.I. has weighed in on the heated debate. Tip’s list of top 10 best rappers includes hip-hop fan favorites, including Tupac, Biggie, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, and Eminem.
The debate on the greatest rappers of all-time is intriguing because you’re comparing rappers from different eras who have conflicting styles and individual messages. Attempting to defend your top rappers versus another person’s best-ever list is a fun, yet challenging exercise. T.I. was up to that challenge, and his greatest rappers of all-time list is superb, yet you could point out some flaws in the rankings.
T.I.’s top 10 rappers ever are:
- Jay Z
- Biggie Smalls
- Snoop Dogg
- Kanye West
- Lil Wayne
T.I. placed himself on the list, because why the hell not, at #11 (Is he better than Ice Cube and Andre 3000 though?).
Rappers were quick to comment on being on the list and being left off the list. Snoop Dogg chimed in on the Instagram post and told Tip: “Nuff respect. @troubleman31 thanks for putting the old dogg in the mix.”
2Chainz commented on the list of the top rappers by writing: “Hahahah I got bodies all in that list.”
Common joked around and said: “Let me check the calendar to see if it’s April 1st. 😂😂😂 FYI, no list is perfect people. It’s just a fun game to play.”
The music artists in Tip’s top 10 are fantastic, but as in all lists that are not your own, there are some issues. Nas should be in the top four, and Drake should be lower than #6. Rakim should be higher than #17, and Slick Rick is better than #27. J. Cole is too high at #34. Another issue is why is KRS-One not on this list? Where is Fat Joe? Does Future really deserve to be in any top 50 rapper list?
