"Rap is something you do/ Hip-Hop is something you live." - KRS-ONE
This list is the definitive list that all the rest of you toy motherfuckers were trying to compile under World's Best Rappers. Read and learn, fools. Then go out and buy real Hip-Hop recordings. Support reality. Quit wasting daddy's money on Hollywood horseshit. Ignorance kills!

God damn! I could keep going, but this is getting mighty hectic, so I'll stop at 50. Please pay no mind to the completely random order. I gave up on trying to put them in order from the get-go. Also, please note that 2Pac, Biggie, Master P, and all other thugs/studio gangstas/basketball players have no place on this list precisely because they have no place in Hip-Hop. If you don't believe me, then you must be young and dumb. I grew up on Hip-Hop, and I remember when 2Pac was just a dancer for Digital Underground. That was before he got the "Juice," podna!
