look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
tupac/2pac there is no competiton. Thug life is rooted for teh underdogg not carrying a gun. Notorious big is fake, he group up rich(his lyrics are deep but aren't true to him which he claims they are)
Talib kweli mos def are also great rappers just like Tuapc
 
2.
Eminem. aka. slim shady and marshall mathers.
best lyricist ever. also the best selling rapper ever. and dubbed by vibe as the best rapper ever. what? you gonna disagree? cuz he white? face it if eminem was black and had his skill people wouldn bother to remember niggas like tupac and biggie.
"Entertainment is changin', intertwinin' with gangsta's
In the land of the killers, a sinner's mind is a sanctum
Holy or unholy, only have one homie
Only this gun, lonely cause don't anyone know me
Yet everybody just feels like they can relate, I guess words are a mothafucka they can be great"
best rapper ever

A human being, probably black, who partakes of rap. To qualify as the best rapper ever there needs to be a cultural affinity to either gats, hoes or a general understanding of life on the street.

Other helpful qualifications, though not neccessary, are getting shot a few times, being poor as hell, smoking a shitload of weed, and a business relationship with Suge Knight. Musical Talent is helpful but in no way exclusive.

As of 2006, the top contenders are a skinny black man and a fat one. Both of whom were fucking murdered by Suge Knight
TeeJay: So Gangsta Krobar got shot eight times at the watermelon factory and wrote a song about it which he carved into his own ass while in prison.

Icy Kold: Shit son, he's the best rapper ever.
