Not another top hip hop rapper list

Jun 18, 2008
It really grinds my gears when I see these top three or top five best rappers of all time or in history. They are all over the search engines but none of them seem to consider the valid points. A rapper is not someone who comes with the best rhymes or has the best production behind them but rather someone who presents him or herself in the perfect balance.

It's all about how much has their music effected people or inspired them. It truly is that easy. Plus what was the 'global' impact they've had. Michael Jackson wasn't a rapper but no one can deny his 'global' impact that is why he is easily the greatest entertainer of all time - even to this day. Same thing goes for rappers or any other music genre. It's all about global impact. People tend to think they are different but they are not. You skin color or your so called 'race' is just a disguise. Can you imagine how boring the world would be if we all looked alike?

So my list has Tupac, Percy Miller, Puff Daddy, Curtis and Marshall Mathers. Tupac has had almost Michael Jackson like impact on the world. You can go to the middle east and when people think of rap music, they think of Tupac (Or Snoop Dogg). The westcoast started it all when it comes to taking things to international levels. Even a decade after his passing he is still raking in millions. I hope the money is truly going to his family but that is something I don't know what is going with. Percy Miller also known as 'Master P' comes in second because he brought the idea of building empires with his music. How many rappers or musicians you know end up on the richest men in the country list on Forbes magazine?

The Hot Boyz and Lil John and the gang came in way after. Master P got so successful that he even landed on the Forbes's top 40 under 40 list, when he was just 28. Now that is some serious impact. Than comes in Eminem who has not only broken the color barrier which was so strong in hip hop but his lyrical game is off the charts. Truly shows you the versatility of hip hop and rap music.

Finally we have P Diddy who almost single handedly brought the rap game to the mainstream and pop charts. Some might argue that P Diddy made hip hop pop - but I think he made hip hop popular around the world. By using a very new formula of remixing 'white' songs into hip hop dance anthems, P Diddy show cased a new side of hip hop. It is because of P Diddy that the world outside of the US fell in love with hip hop. Not to mention, it was P Diddy who introduced Notorious B.I.G to us.
