Has it? Tupac 3rd biggest selling rap artist of all time and Eminem the highest? Tupac would probably still be top if he was still alive

But you know, a few experts on here know more than the rest of the world because they've got some Nas bootleg from 1992 on cassette.

I mean Ed Sheeran's sold a lot of records, too, but nobody's clamoring for that cunt to be in, are they? All subjective, anyway, of course, but they're definitely not the best hip-hop has to offer imo.

Code defo thinks Ed should be in.

Yeah, and for most people but a good song writer. Eminem best lyricist, Biggie best flow. Jay-Z in the mix. Nas. Rakim. 
 

Decent list here.

That’s what I was going to say. Probably gets the early death bonus. I preferred him as an actor.

This gets down to what an artist is - seems like most are going purely on musical output.

Des O'connor has sold 16 million records. Disgrace he's not in this.

My list was a list of artists I thought should be in the discussion, I tried to put forward names I had not seen mentioned before.

Couldn’t deny any of them are talented and a few are right up there, but I’d have at least half the Wu above most of them, plus Doom, Mos Def, Talib Kweli. Kendrick is right up there these days. Can’t deny Lil’ Wayne either, even though he’s not really for me bar A Milli. Loads I’ve forgotten too.

Mos Def right up there for me too, love that guy. Did you see that Talib Kweli podcast I posted a while back Paul (unsure of your interest in those things)? Interesting run through of his history.

He's not even the best rapper in Outkast.

Dunno, he's pretty great throughout Aquemini and Stankonia (leads Rosa Parks and So Fresh, two of the bigger hits). Always think of Big Boi as the better producer though.

There's always going to be contention in a top 10 list. You could name a list of the best 10 footballers and somebody would come along with another 10 who you could say would be in there. Any list without Eminem, Biggie, Jay-Z just isn't a list I'm interested in.
