Let me know if I forgot someone u want to vote for. What defines greatness? Well, it's subjective but it's a combination of lyrics, style, mass appeal, and impact on the industry.

The only rap I listen to is by A Tribe Called Quest...so I can't really make a decision from the above listed, because I hate all their rap.

I was debating whether to add groups or not such as Public Enemy, Run DMC, NWA, Wu Tang, Outkast etc... but decided that was for another day... we're talking about THE GREATEST single rapper of all time!!

DMX?

I don't think their impact on rap was as significant as others, but I'll add them. For the record, they would get torn a new one by pretty much anyone on the list in a battle rap or freestyle competition...

a post about rap on ATOT. I thought most people on here hated rap. Well anyways, my favorite of all time is Nas, w/o a doubt.

luda is pretty good, listen to his words. DMX comes with it strong, although I've never heard any of his freestyle.

neither one of them is even close to being the greatest ever, you suck at the suggestion :p

luda's great and all, and listen to his words - he's rapped seriously like 2% of his career! And DMX is a chump, mainstream garbage compared to what he used to be in 98.
