Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time

Focusing on the most coveted distinction in rap, this discussion is a loaded one, with those worthy of GOAT status often measured by influence, lyricism, and flow. The problem with these factors is that they’re subjective: sure, it only takes a casual hip-hop fan to understand that, in terms of mic-skills, Biggie is superior to Kanye, and, when it comes to impact, Tupac is head-and-shoulders above Drake, but when ranking the top-tier MCs in the running for the GOAT title — i.e. Rakim, Nas, Biggie, Tupac, Jay-Z, Eminem, and Kendrick — the debate becomes unanswerable; though this is that which makes it endlessly entertaining, a part of me wishes we could reach an objective ranking by way of subjective measurements.

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time

Presenting the top 10 greatest rappers of all time based on over 20 different websites and 20 Rappers… Disagree with the list? Comment Below..

1.Eminem

Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III-Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time
Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III

Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce da 5’9″) half of the hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil.

Rolling Stone ranked him 83rd on its list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, calling him the King of Hip Hop. Including his work with D12 and Bad Meets Evil, Eminem has had ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and 5 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and 13 worldwide.

 

This is what the fans say about Eminen….

Best flow, best lyrics, best beats, best singing, voice, best rapper ever he’s best artist ever. Both of his personality, slim shady and Marshall Mathers, are great to listen to. He has a song for whatever mood you’re in, If you need to get pumped up listen to Till I Collapse.

Em is easily #1 his first 3 albums (SSLP, MMLP and Eminem Show) showed rap fans a style never heard before. His metaphors and wordplay are crazy and his lyrics are probably the best ever. He was the first rapper to blow up from the underground battling scene and he always talks about real stuff unlike Wayne and all the other mainstream rappers. Hell the Sequel is gonna be insane! SHADY 4 LIFE!

Eminem’s life made him who he is today, one of the greatest of all time, when I listen to his songs he reminds me of pac, biggie & rakim, one of the greatest of all time and the best rapper alive

Supremely overrated in my personal opinion, but still deserves to be in the top 10 just based on how talented he is at rapping and how fast he can go. He had quite a few ok or even mediocre albums along with some really good ones. I think people rate him so high just based on how fast he can go, but Busta Rhymes (who is higher on my list) was the king of rapping fast while also making the lyrics hammer the point home better than Eminem ever did.

 

2.Tupac

Tupac Amaru Shakur-Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time
Tupac Amaru Shakur

Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was an American rapper and actor born on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, New York. Tupac sold over 75 million records worldwide and has been referred to in multiple major publications such as Rolling Stone as one of the greatest music artists of all time. 2Pac was assassinated on September 1996 at the age of 25.

Shakur is consistently ranked as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time, and he has been listed and ranked as one of the greatest artists of any genre by many publications, including Rolling Stone, which ranked him 86th on its list of The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. On April 7, 2017, Shakur was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

Shakur was born on June 16, 1971, into an African-American family in the East Harlem section of Manhattan in New York City. His birth name was Lesane Parish Crooks. The following year, he was renamed after Túpac Amaru II, the 18th-century Peruvian revolutionary who was executed after leading an indigenous uprising against Spanish rule.

His parents, Afeni Shakur (born Alice Faye Williams in North Carolina) and Billy Garland, were active members of the Black Panther Party in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Lesane was born a month after his mother was acquitted of more than 150 charges of “Conspiracy against the United States government and New York landmarks” in the New York Panther 21 trial.

Many people in Shakur’s life were involved with the Black Liberation Army; some were convicted of serious criminal offenses and imprisoned, including his mother. His godfather, Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt, a high-ranking Black Panther, had been convicted of murdering a school teacher during a 1968 robbery, although his sentence was later overturned. His stepfather, Mutulu Shakur, spent four years at large on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, beginning in 1982. Mutulu was wanted for having helped his friend (no relation) Assata Shakur (also known as Joanne Chesimard), Tupac’s godmother, to escape from a penitentiary in New Jersey in 1979. She had been imprisoned since 1977 for killing a state trooper in 1973. She lived as a fugitive for several years before gaining asylum in Cuba in 1985. Mutulu was caught in 1986 and eventually convicted and sentenced to prison for the 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck, during which two police officers and a guard were killed.

Shakur began his career as a roadie, backup dancer and MC for the alternative hip hop group Digital Underground, eventually branching off as a solo artist. Most of the themes in Shakur’s songs revolved around the violence and hardship in inner cities, racism, and other social issues. During the latter part of his career, Shakur was a vocal participant during the East Coast–West Coast hip hop rivalry, becoming involved in conflicts with other rappers, producers, and record-label staff members, most notably The Notorious B.I.G. and his label, Bad Boy Records. Aside from his career in music, Shakur was also an actor, starring in six films and one TV show in the 1990s, including Poetic Justice (1993), Gang Related (1997) and Gridlock’d (1997).

 

Why 2pac is one of the BEST….

Enough said! Tupac’s a community dude.. Rapping for the people, it doesn’t get better than that. Eminem is great agreed! But tupac gives a whole new meaning to what rapping is supposed to be about.

I agree. Listening to tupac’s music is like a journey through his life and thoughts. By the way I started listening to tupac a while after he died, I actually started listening to eminem first. Tupac treats rap as what it should be, an art-form, not just entertainment. Poetry not nursery rhymes, intellect more so than wit. Even in his casual songs strictly for entertainment he still displays a tremendous level of talent. He is immensely passionate about his poetry and has something real to say.

Tupac will forever be the greatest rapper ever… Period!
Followed by Nas…

He is only one of the ultimate, honest as well as Gangsta rapper standing alone for the people who is suffering… His lyrics, flow and husky voice has inspired me and he will be remaining the no1 rapper till the end of time…R.I.P. leasane parish crooks…

Number 1 on my list has to be Tupac. The fact that Eminem is over him is straight up blasphemy. Tupac was a true revolutionary that inspired many cultural changes throughout the hip-hop industry. Had a flow so good that every lyric or bar he spit aligned perfectly with the beat 100%. He was not afraid to present himself as a gangsta because he believed the difference between high and low music culture was arbitrary and BS. Had the most badass funeral where his friends smoked his ashes in blunts as part of his final will. Never a man more tough or badass than Tupac.

3.The Notorious B.I.G

The Notorious B.I.G-Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time
The Notorious B.I.G

Christopher George Latore Wallace, born May 21, 1972, better known by his stage name The Notorious B.I.G (sometimes Biggie Smalls or just simply Biggie), is an American rapper from Brooklyn, New York. On March 9, 1997, he was murdered in a drive by shooting in Los Angeles, California at the age of only 24. To this day it’s unknown who murdered him.

The Notorious B.I.G. married R&B Singer Faith Evans, and had 2 kids, T’yanna Wallace and Christopher Wallace II.

The Notorious B.I.G sold 17 million units worldwide, with 4 albums released. His first album Ready To Die (1994), is regarded as a hip hop classic by most critics.

The album contains well known songs such as Juicy, Big Poppa, One More Chance, Warning, Gimme The Loot, Suicidal Thoughts, Machine Gun Funk, and Everyday Struggle. His 2nd album Life After Death (1997) came out 16 days after his death, and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It contained well known songs such as Hypnotize, Kick In The Door, Mo Money Mo Problems, Notorious Thugs, Ten Crack Commandments, Sky’s The Limit, and N****’s Bleed.

Other albums released of his are Born Again (1999), Duets: The Final Chapter (2005), Born Again reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Duets: The Final Chapter reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, they included well known songs such as Dead Wrong, Notorious B.I.G, Who Shot Ya, Spit Your Game, and Nasty Girl. And in 2007 There was a Greatest Hits album made from Biggie’s best songs. He also had an album with his group Junior M.A.F.I.A. called Conspiracy which included well known songs such as Players Anthem, I Need You Tonight, and Get Money.

The Notorious B.I.G. is well known for his place in the West Coast-East Coast rivalry where he was the East Coast’s biggest rapper. It began when Tupac accused him of setting up the 1994 shooting because of the song Who Shot Ya which the Notorious B.I.G released in 1995. Due to Tupac serving a sexual assault he didbt respond but after Suge Knight bailed him out on a 1.4 million dollar bail so he could join his record label, in 1996 Tupac released a well-known diss track titled “Hit Em’ Up.” The Notorious B.I.G responded by saying he started writing the song 2 months before the shooting. The song made West Coast-East Coast rivalry expand, then the rivalry took a huge twist when Tupac was shot in a drive by shooting on September 7, 1996 and died 6 days later on September 13, 1996 at the age of 25.

On March 9, 1997, The Notorious B.I.G. wanted to end the rivalry so he went to L.A. to promote his upcoming album called Life After Death (1997) but after the party he was shot and died in the truck on the way to the hospital.

The Notorious B.I.G is known for telling stories in his rap songs, and even though he’s dead his legacy lives on through the eyes of other and through his family, and he will forever live on.

WHAT THE FANS SAY..

His raps are genius, you can actually picture what he’s saying… Story to tell, hypnotize are his top

Number 3 on my list is none other than Notorious B.I.G. Made some of the catchiest rap songs of all time that people still sing/rhyme along to today. Him along with Nas and A Tribe Called Quest /Busta Rhymes defined the East Coast rap scene of the 90s. Spit out badass bars and hip-hop beats on his songs were some of the se xiest.

What can I say? Sometimes his words just hypnotize me. I know it’s on the nose considering how he passed, but Jesus Christ it’s a crime that he isn’t still here. He’d be 49 if he was alive and I have no doubt that he’d have the skills to still be putting out great music today if he hadn’t died.

Sorry it’s a disgrace that Lil wayne be put above him.. Long live The Flow. Biggie was to the East Coast what 2Pac was to the West Coast. Biggie released the Hip Hop classics “Ready to Die” and “Life After Death” and became a Hip Hop icon. He changed the way an MC flows, and stopped everyone in their tracks when he dropped his verse on “Notorious Thugs” using the Bone Thugs style better than they did themselves. Also one of the great storytellers in Hip Hop, The Notorious One had every element an MC could dream of. Would have easily been number 1 if not for his untimely death in 1997.

4.NAS

Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones-Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time
Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones

NasNasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper and entrepreneur born on September 14, 1973 in New York City. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

What we say…

Number 2 on Afromambo.com list is Nas. He would be number 1 our my list if Tupac wasn’t on here. He is a very smart and talented lyricist who has a flow so good that the song no longer becomes a song, but rather a story, a movie in your head about life in Queens in the 90s. Every rap beat on his album has that gritty NYC feel that he wasn’t afraid to represent during the feud between West and East. Definitely one of the realest rappers alive to this date, and one of the first to predict what corporations and record labels would ultimately do to the hip-hop genre once rappers started selling out quality for extra cash. Absolute legend.

Nas is the boss of rap he is amazing. There are many good things about his skills he is a monster of flow, rhythm and beat, very high IQ in writing lyrics and hard to beat in rap battles. Nas rhymes well to but he has a great combination of all those skills and he is great at sampling songs and creating his own rap tunes. Aside from his rap he is one of the only rappers who is a gifted trumpeter he can play other songs of different genres on trumpet and play his own tunes on trumpet. He is okay at singing and playing piano for a rapper. He has sang before and he played some of his tunes on keyboard. Here are examples of good songs from nas. If I ruled the world, New York State of mind, got yo self a gun. State of mind is jazzy and very smooth while lyrical. His rhyming is better in that than most of his stuff to. Got to your self a gun is musical for a rap. He delivers such hard blows in his rap on that while changing the flow and lyrics a lot. He can make the rap very cool without …more

Best lyricist & story teller of all time. Coming from the biggest project complex in the United States Nas is the epitome of the streets and hiphop is the word of the streets. He dropped out of middle school and was forced to educate himself putting him on a whole other level than other rappers. He is the best rapper because he truly has grown with his music. Listen to the music and you cannot deny that Nas is the best rapper of all time.

Nas is one of the best rappers of all time because of his insane lyricism, wide variety of insane beats and production, and making the best rap album of all time, the unmatched Illmatic. It Was Written and Stillmatic were amazing masterpieces also with all of them having different points of views and Nas’ incredible storytelling. Unlike everybody I think Nas is fine at 4 behind slim, pac, and big but I would prefer him in the top 3 because I think eminem needs to be 4 and Nas needs to be 3. Personal favorite song by Nas is I Gave You Power and other incredible songs include N.Y. state Of Mind Part I and II (personal preference is part 2 but that’s just me), the world is yours, the message, one mic, it ain’t hard to tell, ether, memory lane, nas is like, get down and a lot more.

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time- top 5

5.Jay-Z

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time- jay-z

Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name JAY-Z, is an American rapper, record producer, entrepreneur and investor born on December 4, 1969 in Brooklyn, New York. He is best known for his albums Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, and The Black Album. He is considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

WHY JAY-Z IS NUMBER 5 BEST RAPPER OF ALL TIMES..

Came to this page and saw that Jay-z was fifth. Personal I have him marked 2nd under Eminem but Jay-z needs to be a lot higher then 5th. He sold more then any other artist on this list outside of Eminem.

The only reason Eminem sells more is because Hov is busy with billion dollar project and supporting people. The other artist on this list either don’t have enough music or aren’t as consistent as Jay z. Jay z music matures with his lifestyle. Jay z has covered every topic in his rap career. money, hustling, women, wealth, violence, game, relationships, deaths, family, swag, tragedy, history, religion, failure, success, drugs, enemies, friends ect. On these topics Jay z can tell stories or freestyle and probably forgot more rhymes then most artist will ever learn.

When it comes to features Jayz has more then anyone in the top 10.With all of these thousands of songs you’ll think you can find one wack song. Nope Jayz has no lame song. 

Jay Z is not only one of the best rappers STILL in the game, but he’s also one of the most successful men on this planet. Coming from the streets, he turned himself into a business man. He’s discovered most of the greatest talents in the industry today. He discovered Kanye. Nobody thought Kanye could rap till Hova supported him. Jay has been putting music out for the past 19 years. What rapper can stay relevant for that long? This dude is in his 40s. And with age, his lyrics have grown.

He went from a 90s thug, making freestyles about killing cops with Big L to being one of the most influential artists in pop culture today. Listen to one song on Magna Carta Holy Grail, and you’ll be scratching your head to the lyrics. You look up what he’s talking about and you realize that Jay Z is a lyricist like no other. He’s getting to the point where his music is almost art. Can he spit fast like Eminem? No, but he’s got a style that surpasses speed. 

HE RULE! He has is the best rapper I have every seen! He have a awesome flow of rapping, jay-z flow and delivery is like no other he is no doubt on of the most talented rappers to come into the game. All I can really say here is Jay should without doubt be above 50 Cent, Nas and Lil Wayne.. I can at least accept why people might put Biggie, Tupac or even Eminem above him, but the other three just aren’t in the same league Jay-Z is the best selling rapper of our time 50 cent is no comparison to him. Not only that but Jay-z runs one of the best rap labels there is with rappers like Kayne, Nas, and many others on it. Plus where the hell is 50 its been years since he made a hit. There is no comparison between the two. Jay-z should be up with nas and all the other rappers who actually changed the rap scene all 50 did is talk big and brag about getting shot he’s a trash rapper.

Jay-Z should be in the top three. No other rapper has been as consistently great as Hov. In an industry that is difficult as is to make it in, Jay-Z has proved himself to be more than worthy of not only one of the greatest rappers alive, but maybe one of the greatest rappers ever. You cannot logically rank 2pac and Biggie over Jay-Z, because even if they were alive, you don’t know how they would have evolved and how their raps would be now. Look what happened to top rappers like Ja Rule and DMX. They once were on top of the rap world by far, but they weren’t consistent. Jay-Z, however, has not missed a beat. In his own words, “Ever since I made the change over to platinum, the games been a rap. One. ” Not to mention the genius lyrics and flow, Hov is the American Dream.

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time-N0.6

6.Dr. Dre

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time Dr.DREAndre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur born on February 18, 1965 in Compton, CA. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

YOUR SAY ABOUT Dr.Dre…

Alright, Dr. Dre has definitely contributed the most to hip hop out of everyone on this list by far. Two start off, he made two of the most classic rap albums ever; 2001 and The Chronic. Anyone who disagrees just has to listen to them. Also he was part of the best rap group ever NWA. He also made the careers of Game, Eminem, 50 Cent, Snoop and even contributed to the Nas career. He is wildly known as the best producer/beat maker ever. He is the best rapper alive.

Dr dre is one of the best rappers he is more gifted than people realize. That comment below is very true he has a lot of good songs in spite of being as much of a performer and song writer as some rappers dre still wrote and raps lots of music. Forgot about dre is a great example of smooth and great flow rap. Plus Dre raps fast in that song to which shows a great combo, it shows that he can put on that clever fast rap that eminem can do. Songs like nuthing but a g thang, express yourself, talking to my diary, sa prize part 2, are other songs with musical flow and smart lyrics. he is gifted in singing and piano playing to!

Dre should definitely be higher up, he is the most influential rapper ever, with classics like 2001 and the chronic. My two favourite songs of all time are ‘nuthin but a g thang’ and ‘still dre’. I’ve looked down this list and seen will smith, lil wayne, chris brown, drake, John cena, soulja boy etc. , which just makes this a joke of a list straight away! This frustrates me! DETOX!

Dr. Dre is the heart of rap. There are a lot of rappers that have made an impact on rap, but Dr. Dre may be the reason why rap is thriving, when it could have just been a fad. Dre is likely the greatest producer there ever will be in rap, and his contribution to rap and what he does for the music industry in general goes far beyond any other person in hip hop history. His friendship with and discovery of Eminem and other notable artists have likely made rap more than it would have ever been. The man also has the gift of singing. His song, Forgot About Dre, is a great example of how smooth and how great of flow Dre is capable of.

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time- N0.7

7.Kendrick Lamar

7.Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (born June 17, 1987) is an American rapper and songwriter. Raised in Compton, California, Lamar embarked on his musical career as a teenager under the stage name K-Dot, releasing a mixtape that garnered local attention and led to his signing with indie record label Top Dawg .

Why is Kendrick one of the Best RAPPERS OF ALL TIMES?

Hands down the best rapper in the new game. I appreciate his diverse range of lyricism and spans of musical genres ranging from the 90s/2000s west coast hip-hop influenced Good Kid M.A.A.D. City album to the gritty and trippy underground jazz East Coast influenced “To Pimp a Butterfly” and “Untitled Unmastered” albums. In addition, he would later compose the best soundtrack for an MCU film ever with the “Black Panther” soundtrack. Every song he writes is very deep, influential, and consciously socio-political. His range of experimentation definitely places him in the top 10.

78? This is a joke right? Kendrick is one of if not the most talked about artists at the moment. After releasing a brilliant album in Section.80, he signed with Dr. Dre to Aftermath and just recently put out his major label debut, good kid, M.A.A. D city. That album is a future classic. Honestly, Kendrick’s style is very similar to 2Pac. Deep lyrics with a meaning, which make him easy to relate to. The one thing Kendrick has that 2Pac didn’t really have is the ability to be one of the greatest lyricists of all time. Not to mention his crazy and unique flow/delivery. Kendrick is the future and is sure to be one of the best by the time he’s done. Mark my words.

Kendrick Lamar in my opinion is one of the best rappers in the game right now. His rediculous flow in rigamortus amazes me as well as his 100% beast flow in look out for detox. The way he slays every track he features makes the actual artist who made the song look small compared to his lyrical thunder. Don’t believe me? Just check out the song The City by The Game or Text Book Stuff by XV. This MC is a monster and for many in 2011 he made his first album Section 80 that was by far the best album of the year for many. Also checkout his song Cartoons and Cereal. For kendrick to be in 98th place as the best rapper is a shame for he is definitely better then overrated Eminem and should be in first. This is only the start of Kendricks career. Wonder what he’ll put out next.

P. S kendrick lamar and J Cole collab album in the future.

Kendrick Lamar is a prime example of what a real rapper is. He’s not a former gangster or a drug dealer. He raps his life story and his real life story of battling to stay straight growing up in Compton. Kendrick Lamar’s beats are mellow, but his flow his faster than any others. It is insulting having Lil Wayne on this list above Kendrick Lamar. Lil Wayne has even stated that he cannot even touch Kendrick Lamar. On top of that there is not a single song on any of his albums that isn’t real and amazing. His live performances topple everyone’s. He has enough talent that he literally called out everyone in the game on his verse in control, and got everyone else to make rebuttal diss songs. No one else is above him or can even touch his talent.

8.Kanye West

Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West’s parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching at Nanjing University. As a child, art such as poetry and drawing fascinated him. By the age of 13, West was already recording hip-hop songs. West received a scholarship for several universities as a teenager, but dropped out after recognizing that the universities he was attending was not meeting up with his expectations.

Kanye West went on to be a producer in the late 1990s, for musicians such as D-Dot and The Go-Getters. As time went on, he began working more well-known artists, like Nas and The Notorious B.I.G.

By the year of 2000, Kanye West got signed with Roc-A-Fella Records, since Jay-Z saw “pure talent” in him.

Kanye West is known for hits such as “Slow Jamz”, “Gold Digger”, and “Stronger”.

Kanye West married Kim Kardashian in the year 2014 and the year before (2013) had their first child North West. In December 5th, 2015, they had their second child Saint West.

In 2020, he announced his candidacy for President of the United States.

WHY IS KANYE WEST ON TOP 10?

Kanye may not have a single calendar year that rivals the aforementioned MCs, but what he has had is a consistent presence on the charts. In nine consecutive years, from 2004 to 2012, Kanye had at least one song that charted atop either the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard Hot Rap Songs, or Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including a three-year run (2007–09) in which he posted seven №1 singles. Further, he makes his case as a commercial giant with eight №1 albums and 16.3 million albums sold, which cement him as the №1 rapper of his era in both categories. More than anything, though, when it comes to full bodies of work, Kanye is unrivaled amongst his peers

 

9. Drake

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time - DRAKE

On his 2013 loosie, “5 AM in Toronto,” Drake famously rapped, “Most number-ones ever, how long did it really take me?” Well, not long. By early 2012, he already set the record for most number-ones on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart (11) and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (10). In the six years since, he’s made a mockery of his own records, notching his 20th and 19th №1s, respectively, this year, giving him a grand total of 26 songs that have topped at least one of the charts. If his career-defining summer has proven anything, though, it’s that Drake’s rap peers are no longer who he’s chasing: last month, with four new top 10 singles to his credit, Drake leapfrogged Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to become the man with the most top 10 singles under his own name (31); and, when it comes to all artists, he only trails The Beatles (34) and Madonna (38).

Top 10 Best Rappers of All Time

10.Ice Cube

O’Shea Jackson, born June 15, 1969 in Baldwin Hills, CA, known by his stage name Ice Cube, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and filmmaker. He began his career as a member of the hip-hop group C.I.A and later joined the seminal gangster rap group N.W.A. After leaving N.W.A in December 1989, he built a successful solo career in music and films.

 Ice Cube is by far the best member of one of the 4 best rap groups (in my opinion):N.W.A. with Ice Cube’s dope rhymes, anger. Topics. And lyrical content, Ice Cube is one of the maybe even the best gangsta rapper ever. He has 1 classic w/ N.W.A. :Straight outta Compton, and 2 classics alone, even though they weren’t as good as Straight Outta Compton: Death Certificate and AmeriKa’s most wanted. Plus, It was Good Day is considered one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time. Best album w/ N.W.A. : Straight outta Compton. Best solo Album: Death Certificate. Best song: It was good day. Best collaboration: Check yo self ft. Das EFX. Best album w/ Westside Connection: Bow Down. Best single: It was a good day. Best verse: verse 1 of Straight outta Compton

The Fact that Ice Cube is 24 and Lil Wayne is 2 makes me want to punch somebody Ice cube is the best S. Ice Cube was the definition of Microphone Controller.
