I guess its hard to come up with a list that every body will agree on ... and it has to do with personal likes and dislikes, to sum it up, as a fan, I believe that pun is #1 in lyrics (but i do recognize its hard for me to say pun when rakim is the father of the craft), I believe Biggie is #1 in wordplay , and I believe that busta rhymes is hands down the most consistent and has the most longevity in the game (since 89 and still sounding new as day and steadily sh*ttin on older and new rappers)... it would be real interesting if they would come up with a list where they would simply crown the best in different categories such as the best lyricist, best group, best album, most successful ect ( now that would stir sh*t up) I have my own personal list in my page ( which I made when I first made the profile, and who knows, probably some of the sh*t changed in my mind) but i do have my own version). ...
funny thing is this isn't The Source's first list. before they made this list, they had a "100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs Of The 90s" list or something like that. according to them, "Nuttin' But A G Thang" (#1) defined the 90's. i don't know if i agree with that. point is no matter how many experts are on the panels for these lists there will always be counterpoints to every rank. what i'd like to see them do next is a "100 Greatest Hip Hop Albums" list. that would definately create another heated discussion lol
100 Greatest Hip Hop Albums !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now that changes everything (now that i'm looking forward to) !!!!!!!!!!!! lol I could see and hear the arguments now lol

here is a short documentary about Rakim historic career

IMO big L and Big Pun should be in top 10 and why is black thought, jadakiss, and styles p after some of these rappers?????? and why is pac before krs-one???

Big L(#26)
"Ebonics"
The Big Picture
2000
2nd big l sng i heard ever
REALLY?!?
@songetwrec are you happy you got #1 top content Lol
Yall niccas gonna just discuss the Source List until you blue in the face huh?
Why does that bother you we are just doing it for the love we got for the hip hop culture but you wouldnt understand that cuz you are just a fan of one artist and you aint passionate about the culture like we are plus you are from another country

If you say so bro. Did you gather that from me or from Still D.R.E's comments? Who in God's name is a fan of one artist? Say that out loud and tell me how smart that sounds.
