No ICE T? No Eazy E? No Dr Dre? ... and no fucking Anne Hathaway? What kind of poll is this?

Who sang "Mr. Dabolina"? Del the Funky Homosapien?


I've never heard of half of these people, and don't know any 'raps' from most of the ones I have heard of. Grandmaster Flash & Melly Mell
, LL CoolJ 'Can't Livve w/o my Radio', once saw Ice Cube and his hugely-breasted wife(?) going into the Apple store (and know his work from SVU)....

I have heard some French rap which had strong North African(?) musical undertones that I find far preferable (even though I can't understand it) to the very 'unmusical', barebones type of rap you hear here....

I like Nas....followed by Andre 3000 and Soldier Boy.


even though I'm a Dre 3000 fan, many people sleep on Big Boi's skills.

Many of the people were named for the hell of it. Mos nor Common stand no chance of winning.

I kept Soulja Boy off the list as to make it fair, I wanted it to be competetive with no clear winner.

2Pac or Andre 3000...i voted Andre. Pac is more grounded and makes music the whole world can relate to...Andre is a bit more cerebral. Hard to choose between them.

Dr. Dre? He does a very good job of delivering the lyrics written for him by others, but I never considered him an MC.

Get your old ass out the thread
. His name is Ice Pick not Ice Cube, Ice Cube was in Boys in the Hood, and Are We There Yet.
