Every rap fan has had this conversation… heck, it’s probably exploded into a full blown argument. And that’s “Who’s makes the list of the best rappers of all time?” Everyone has an opinion and it’s usually based on popularity instead of skill.
Here is 4 best rappers of all time
Jay-Z is a rapper who is extremely effective at being overly-complex but chooses to be loose with his style. This gives him more space to hone and discuss his message, which is his real strength. When you hear Jay-Z, you hear a man who is experienced in existence and contains a lot of older things to say.
Everyone loves it, which explains why he’s the strangest American musician and also the first rap billionaire. You’ve heard of Jay-Z and noticed his music, what’s there to say.
3. Chali 2na
He manages not to waste a single opportunity to put an internal or external rhyme using multisyllables, along with his lyrics make perfect sense and are mature. His baritone voice is so pleasant also.
Chali 2na is exactly what predominate sounds like. There is nowhere to improve. The only problem is he chooses to make more uplifting tunes (which could get old) and attempts to earn pop hits. It is one of the same problems using Big Pun, pursuing money with cheesy pop songs. He spent all his money on betting and on playing Bikini party slots, as he says. Regardless, Chali is on top of the rap game concerning refinement.
2. Tech N9ne
Tech N9ne has the best flow of time, hands down, zero questions. His usage of triplets, sixlets, complicated rhyme schemes, multisyllabic rhyming, bizarre time signatures, and much more sets him nearly at the very top. His energy is unmatched. So why is not he number one?
Since he will not break from his sophistication. He follows the principles so hard that sometimes he even makes up words or phrases to fit into the multi. It’s not a huge deal but if he can get past that and possibly improve his storytelling, he can easily take the top spot. His words, rhymes and music are as smooth as Japanese shears.
If you ask me, Eminem is becoming worse with time as he“evolved” through shock rap to sing-song rap into attempting to sound like the modern mumble rappers. But if you’ve heard his discography, notably his oldest work along with his freestyles, it is unquestionable… he retains the crown.
Eminem has taken mastery to some other degree. When he is not worried about mass appeal, his music is next-level in terms of complexity, language, rhyming phrases you would never think to put together, etc… His freestyle skills are truly limitless, to the point where he’s doing things that seem inhuman.
