Magneto’s Top 10 Rappers Ever (Entrant 1)

Share Button

And we’re down to the last one. Before we begin with the final entrant, I’d just like to address a few issues people have expressed about my rankings and the omission of certain artists. I expected that not everyone would like or agree with my list going in, and I’m fine with that. I knew people would say it’s rather “Cliché” and that is also a criticism that I was certain would be stated. However, one that people have misconstrued is that I made this list out of my PERSONAL favorite rappers. This isn’t about my favorites, this isn’t even necessarily a list of the most talented rappers, imo. It’s about the My Top Ten Rappers of Ever, based off a criteria that I laid forth, that I felt would give the most un bias result. Anyway, without anymore delay…Number 1..Jigga

1. Jay-Z

null

The MC from Marcy Project that went on to become the most successful rap artist of all-time


Material – 9-10 – Jay-Z began his career in a very uneventful fashion as a back up to Jaz-O, as one of the Originators in the 1980s. After that didn’t work, Jay revamped his style from 1993-1995, until it was fully developed. He released his classic album Reasonable Doubt, which got rave reviews when it debuted, but still kinda flew under the radar, even though his single did go Gold, and the LP went Gold later that same year. His display of unmatched wordplay all the while talking about his tribulations in the drug trade made for one of the more introspective, and lyric heavy albums of the 1990s. He moved on to his second LP the In My Lifetime, which was him moving to a more pop appeal, however, he still managed to spit some of his best verses ever, even though some of the beats lacked the street appeal that his debut album had. He continued on to release more commercial material, especially his break out LP Hard Knock Life, which sold 5 Million, and catapulted him into the biggest rap star in the game, a title he has basically held on to since. His next few albums were all critical and commercial successes, and developed his brand even further, and helped establish his legacy. Then, the release of the BluePrint, quiet arguably, the best rap album of this decade. While taking on more diverse subject matters, and dealing with beefs with Nas, DMX and Mobb Deep, he released his most soulful and unique album of his career. While his other Blueprint albums haven’t reached the critical acclaim as his first, they were still good albums. And albums like American Gangster show that on the mic, he’s still significantly above the majority of his peers.

Influence – 10-10 – No rapper in history has ever had the influence of Jay-Z. No matter what coast, or age group you’re talking about, Jay-Z is who most rappers want to emulate their careers after. Rather it be starting as an independent rap label, and building from the ground up into a half a billion dollar business mogul; or just being considered by their peers to be the most complete MC in the game, rappers have looked up to Jay-Z as the pinnacle of what it is to be a success. Everyone from Lil Wayne, to T.I., to Jadakiss, Fabolous, etc..the list is long of rappers over the years who have taken an followed in Jay’s footsteps. And it’s passed just rappers, look around and you see the influence he has on mainstream and urban America. Jay-Z is the only artist I know that can basically make or break a product by merely stating if he thinks it’s passé or not.

Longevity – 10-10, Jay has been rapping for over 20 years, and is still, either the biggest or second biggest rap artist in the game today. That is unheard of. In a business where fame is usually here today, gone tomorrow, Jay has been able to maintain the ears of listeners for over two decades. Has he latched on to other people’s popularity at times? Certainly. However, that is the sign of someone who is aware of how fickle the game cane be, and adapts accordingly. Jay-Z is the only rapper that debuted in the 1980s that still goes platinum every go around, can sell out arenas in every big venue in the U.S., and across the globe.

Mic Skills – 10-10 For all the talk of Jay-Z’s success, his marriage to Beyonce, his business deals, at the end of it all, he is still one of the most gifted MCs to ever grab the mic. There isn’t anything Jay can’t do when it comes to rap. He has spit some of the most complex metaphors in rap history, all while displaying the best flow in the game. There isn’t a beat or a style of rap Jay hasn’t perfected. His cadence is, delivery, and pocket game are all top notch as well. There really is no flaws at all to his rapping ability when he is completely focused. The ONLY gripe you could possibly have is, that at times, Jay does tend to dumb down his lyrics for his audience to understand him. I, personally, don’t think that is a flaw, it’s a smart way to maintain a larger audience.

Score 39/40

Best Song: D’Evils
Best Album: Reasonable Doubt

    When children understand how important “real food” is and where the natural ingredients of our food come from, they will increase the general population’s appreciation for preserving our natural environment and limiting toxins and polluting processes in our world. We may even trend back to the time when people stepped outside their homes to interact with family and neighbors in home and community gardens and block-party barbeques. Does anybody even remember how nice those days were?

  95. grow taller says:

    To me, becoming healthy and remaining healthy will always be a range a single priority. That is why I have wasted thousands on keeping myself fit mainly because what I consider is that in case you stay healthy, then you can get any work or man/woman you need as you believe more confident as part of your body and persona. That is why I invested in this help to growing taller naturally – it helped me grow taller by 2-3 inches and it doesn’t involve any risky treatments and any dangerous/expensive supplements. Should you want to verify it out, click on my link in my name, if you hurry up, you can get it for just $19 (make sure you try and exit the window, and then it shows the limited special offer 🙂 ), I personally got it for $39, and even that was worth it because it helped me get the $200k job I always wanted.

  132. Teddy C.D. says:

    Reasonable Doubt was a classic though, I can’t dispute this. I didn’t think The Blueprint was all that though, it was a very good album, but I don’t know if I’d call it a classic. I also liked The Black Album, but overall I think Jay-Z has been very overrated his entire career. It’s weird because he was actually more lyrically dexterous when spitting rhymes with Jaz-O, before venturing off into Roc-A-Fella, especially his “meh” second and third and fourth and fifth albums… Anyways, I for sure would have ranked Nas ahead of Jigga, as well as a slew of other rappers. But that’s just me. Again, not to bite Verge’s comment but props on the time and effort, and the well-written entries.

  133. Teddy C.D. says:

    Kind of have to co-sign the homie Verge here… But still, props on the work you put into this list, and you really did stick with your criteria, which I thought was really well-chosen. You backed up your points, and I can tell you thought these through a lot so this is a series you should be proud of. Thanks for some good reads!

    Peace.

    Material. Out of all his discography only Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint and Black Album can be viewd as great and out of those three onle RD & Blueprint are classics. The rest is sub-par. Rakim holds more weight in this category, since his first three are undisputable classics and the fourth is near classic.
    Influence. Again, Rakim influenced every MC on this planet. Every rapper mentions him as the influence, even his peers who came with him or even erlier. At the same time not every rapper mentions Jay-Z. Even Nas has more influence IMO. BTW Nas’ discography is better IMO.
    Longevity. This point is undisputable.
    Mic Skills. There are at the very least 10 MC’s who are more advanced and better than Jay.
    Maybe he sold zillions of records, but that doesn’t make him the Ever. The richest and the most accessible, and the most shown on TV doesn’t mean that he’s the greatest. Some MC’s, while not as rich, are more influential, have better mic skillz and better discographies.
