Reign’s Top 10 Greatest Rappers

I wonder if Billboard.com was going off of number one hits according to their charts plus, album sales when they put together their “Top 10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time” list.

Either way I don’t completely agree with so here is my top ten list for the greatest rappers of all time.

1. A Tribe Called Quest (Phife Dawg)
2. Nas
3. Notorious B.I.G.
4. BIG Pun
5. KRS ONE
6. JAY Z
7. Mos Def
8. MC Lyte
9.  Kendrick Lamar
10.  Tupac

WUC Top 10 Greatest MC’s List

Wednesday morning on the WDKX Wake Up Club Tariq, Talent and myself had a debate of the greatest rappers of all time in our opinion.

Now this debate came after Billboard magazine released their top 10 greatest rappers of all time.

We all agreed that half of the list should be removed and replaced.

Now Billboard magazine list had names like Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000,
And Lauryn Hill just to name a few.

Now i’m not taking anything away from the artist that are on their list I just feel that there’s other artist  that had a bigger impact and more influence on the culture of hip hop then those names Billboard pick.

So I came up with my own list no particular order just my opinion of 10 greatest rappers of all time.

Bryson Tiller “Exchange”

Bryson Tiller’s album, TRAPSOUL, has been on constant rotation ever since it’s release on October 2nd. One of my favorite songs off the album is, “Exchange,” a slow R&B track about his ex-girl and how he wants her back.

His flow on this song is smooth as he transitions from singing to rapping much like my favorite artist, Drake! The beat uses a slowed down sample from Hip-Hop song “Short Swing My Way” by KP and Envi. You have to be careful, this song will get you in your feelings! lol

Favorite Lyrics: “Waiting on a sign, guess it’s time for a different prayer
Lord, please save her for me, do this one favor for me
I had to change my player ways, got way to complicated for me
I hope she’s waiting for me”

Listen to the song below. To listen to the whole TRAPSOUL album click here.
