When all these mags and websites do all these best rappers of all time list. I know we all feel they leave someone off. Name 2-5 rappers you feel always get overlooked but should be mentioned.

Oh, God. Just 5, max? Aceyalone, Del, Kool Keith, One.Be.Lo and Aesop Rock were the first 5 that came to mind. If Eazy-E, Dr Dre or DMX is on the list, there is no excuse not to have any one of my selections. I try to stay away from these lists nowadays, but let me guess as to a typical top 5: Nas, Eminem, Jay-Z, Biggie, 2Pac. Am I warm? Gee, ya don't say.

My picks would be:

Scarface (Even in the South, he's not mentioned much)
Keith Murray (Dude is a beast, but he never gets the respect he deserves)
Ras Kass

You know Ian, I agree, but as to the typical top 5, thats probably because

Nas, Eminem Jay-Z, Biggie, 2Pac, >>>> Aceyalone, Del, Kool Keith, One Be Lo , Aesop Rock.


Canibus[never gets rated high enough]
Rass Kass
Killah Priest
Chief kamachi

You read me wrong. I said I don't read those lists anymore in the first place because I generally already know who I'm going to see and who I'm not going to see. It gets old reading the same junk over and over again.

I'd say Pharoahe Monch, Big L, Common, Black Thought, MF Doom, Mos Def

Brother J
Brother Ali
Devin The Dude

I think all of them are contenders. Not for a top 10 but most def they could compete in a broader list.

"....typical top 5: Nas, Eminem, Jay-Z, Biggie, 2Pac. Am I warm? Gee, ya don't say."

Hahahehe....not only do they make 99% of all lists, they usually constitute about 60/70% of discussion.

Wise Intelligent NEVER makes any list. Shame, coz the dude's one of the finest ever.
B-Real gets ignored like some kind of nasal plague.
Masta Ace. What, I need to explain this one?

A couple who prob aren't worthy of Top 10, but are underrated and rarely mentioned...
Baatin, original member of Slum Village.
Grym Reaper (Too Poetic) from Gravediggaz. This guy tried something different, and nailed it! Not only is HE underrated, but the Gravediggaz debut is underrated. Dopeness abounds!
