This is all personal opinions. From recent years, i will say yeah, maybe i don't like a tonne of wayne's stuff. Regardless though, his impact on the hiphop community is huge. His influence (why also having Drake to back him, since he signed Drake under his record label) is unquestionably one of the biggest hip hop influences in recent times. Yeah, i like Nas. I like Dre. I like eminem. I like The Roots. Don't Say Nuthin' will probably be one of my favorite songs for years to come. The beat and rhyme are just sick. Nas said hip hop was dead, well, IMO Rap and hiphop suffered immensely in the last 10 years, but hell, Drizzy and Weezy are bringing it back to mainstream, is that something to be ignored? I don't know if its that drake wasn't poor when he was signed, but he'd got skill? Does all the talent in hip hop only have a basis if it comes from the underground or a hood?

Tupac is my number one. No one else comes close to me. Biggie is a distant second and Easy E is probably third on my list.

Edit: Eminem makes my top 10 list. Jay Z also has to be up there even though I don't like him at all.

Lets talk about Drake in a bit (like 20 years). He's accomplished so much but so little when compared to other rappers.

I wouldn't even put him on the top 50 list.

The lack of Run DMC in this thread is disturbing!

I forgot to mention Aesop Rock. Bazooka Teeth is one fine album.

lol @ the Eazy E selections. Probably the least talented member of NWA, and at best a reluctant, ordinary MC. Top 3 artist? He's not even top 3 in NWA.

I will also put forth the unpopular opinion that Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac are only popular and revered because they're dead. Were they great? Arguably. Best ever? Nah, man.

In terms of style and intellectual content, Asop Rock and Sage Francis need consideration.

Will have to think of a top 10 later

Winnipeg's Most is pretty sick too. Joey Stylez is Canada's version of Lil Wayne. I don't like him.

LOL is that a joke? Eazy-E was not the least talented member of NWA. Him, Dre and Ice Cube pretty much made that group. I don't even know who the hell the other two or three guys where.

MC Ren could rhyme circles around Eazy E on Eazy's best day. All Eazy was good at was getting AIDS.

I am personally a fan of Talib Kweli, Souls of Mischief, Jurassic 5, Atmosphere, and Hieroglyphics so I would add them into the mix. I can't really see any of these being on any "top 10 of all time" lists though.

I also have to say that in terms of mainstream success, LL Cool J (who I would argue was the first rapper to use his sex appeal) and Beastie Boys should be in the argument.

Anyone who doesn't have MF Doom on their list does not know Hip Hop.
