I've seen many good lists, but... this list is bulls**t. Lil' Kim is on 8. Beastie Boys is on 9. Missy Elliot is on 10. Why Chuck D is on 22? He should be in 10. WTF? You're kidding! I hope Dre - is Andre 3000, not Dr. Dre. Eminem is on 3? I respect him, but he doesn't deserve this place. You think Nelly is better than Common, KRS-One, DMX, Chuck D, Run DMC. Is it joke?. Ghostface Killah or Inspectah Deck are not worse than Method Man. There isn't Pharoahe Monch, Redman, Canibus, Big L, Guru, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Slick Rick in the list. Mos Def, Masta Ace and Ice Cube are also good rappers, not garbage like Foxy or Nelly. Are Beastie Boys MC? No, Beastie Boys is a group. Lauryn Hill and MC Lyte - are greatest female MC's (Queen Latifah is also good)

"I think its the new blonde babe hes rolling with shes killing his focus"
Who knew 10 years later that she'd be the death of him
3.Big Daddy Kane
5.Kool G Rap
17.LL Cool J
Big L? MF Doom? Black Thought? Eazy E? Guru? Masta Ace? Q-Tip? Cise Star? Raekwon? Immortal Technique? Mos Def? Talib Kweli? Canibus? Vinnie Paz? Celph Titled? AZ? Aesop Rock? MF Doom? MF Doom? MF DOOM?!!!?!?!
This list is brutal.
Rakim should be top 3, Big Pun and KRS-One are easily top 10. Tupac and Biggie, while great, are very overrated. They deserve top 7 or so, but not 1 and 2. Diversity's great and all, but Missy Elliot sucks and Lil Kim is very mediocre.
17.Big Daddy Kane
3. MF Doom

is this supost to be a good list???
If this is a list of MC's, why are duos included? If we're including groups, you mean to tell me that Queen Latifah is better than Outkast and NWA? Bullshit. MTV still clueless.
