Magneto’s 10 Greatest Rappers Ever (First Entrant)

Share Button

When I originally thought of creating a list of the top 10 rappers ever, I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into. This process took a lot of time and effort, as I went back and listened to a lot of albums over the last few weeks. Some of these albums I know like the back of my hand I listened to them so much, and others I rarely if ever played. However, in order to get a truly accurate and non bias list of rappers who belonged on this list, I forced myself to sit through albums that are not just bad, but should not have even been released for public consumption.

After doing that, and making changes to the list about 5 times to finally get it right, I believe I created the most accurate top ten that can be made. Of course, that’s just in my opinion, I’m sure right off the bat there will be people who will disagree with rankings, and feel some of their favorites should’ve made the cut. When this ten week process is over, I will gladly explain to you why certain legends or other well respected rappers didn’t make it on the list.

I will be posting a new entrant onto the list every Friday, the rankings will be based off four main factors

Material – This includes everything from albums, mix tapes, unreleased tracks, features etc…Basically, any thing the artist made, that I heard, counts.

Longevity – How long was this rapper on top, and I don’t necessarily mean selling records, more about the quality of their releases and the ability to maintain their talent

Influence – The importance they had in the game and to other MCs

Skill level – Talent level of the rapper. How skillful was he in putting songs together, wordplay, rhyme schemes, vocab, etc…all the nerd shit us internet rap fans love.

Each one, will be graded by a score of 1-10 (10 being the highest) in each category, and will add up to a total score.

Without further adieu….

10. SCARFACE

null

Coming straight out of H-Town, Texas, Scarface has been one of the most influential rappers of the last 20 years. A part of one of rap’s all-time greatest groups the Geto Boys, Scarface has created a legacy of music that stands up to any other southern artist ever.

Material – 8/10 – Scarface as a solo artists, as one undeniable classic which is The Diary, and another debatable one with his debut “Mr. Scarface is back”. His material with Geto Boys is what really puts him in the elite status as far as catalog of material goes, with Grip it! On That Other Level and Resurrection being their apex as a group. However, Scarface did a have a few missteps in his long career (The Untouchable, yeah, exactly) , and a period between 1996-2001 (The Fix) where it was pretty thin on memorable moments for Mr. Face.

Longevity – 8/10 It’s hard to find many rappers that can match Scarface in this department. Scarface has been rapping in the limelight for over 22 years, and only a 5 year period of mediocrity, before coming back with a great album (The Fix). Currently, he is coming back with another album, which I don’t have high hopes for in terms of quality, but if anyone should be given the benefit of the doubt …

Influence – 7/10 In today’s climate, Scarface’s impact isn’t really that felt because his legacy was created in another era. HOWEVER, ask any of your favorite rappers from the 90s where most of their ideas come from, and concepts for their album cuts, and it goes directly to Scarface and The Geto Boys. He has left a very strong influence on the game, and even though many of the rappers of the last decade may not be directly influenced by his material, the rappers they look up to are. In other words….Scarface is your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.

Skill Level – 6/10 This is where Scarface takes a hit. While he has tremendous material, and has been very innovative, he lacked a lot in terms of raw talent. A lot of his rhymes were straight forward and simplistic, which is not a bad thing, when you have such a fearsome delivery that makes the lines come to life. However, when it comes to evaluating the skillfulness of putting these rhymes together, that causes issues for the Texas legend. As far as rhyme schemes, vocab and other technical aspects of rapping, he is far behind a lot of his peers on this list, and that knocks him down a few notches. One factor that does help is that he was one of the great cinematic storytellers in rap history. Every line is intricate part of the story, and he leaves you always entertained. That counts for a lot.

Overall, Scarface ends with a 29/40 rating.

Best song: Jesse James
Best album: The Diary

  35. Barry Cryer says:

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  36. Barry Cryer says:

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  37. Barry Cryer says:

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  38. Fairly cool post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have really liked reading your weblog posts. Anyway I’ll be subscribing to your weblog and I hope you publish once more soon!

  104. School loans for College while your kid is a Junior in High School – For finanial-aid purposes, the most important year is without a doubt the one which starts on Jan1 while your kid is a junior in high school – the “base income period.” During that time and all the way through university, revenue earned or obtained is counted more greatly than assets in the financial-aid formulations. Avoid taking retirement distributions or realizing large capital profits for the duration of that period of time. Stock up on contributions to retirement plans before the base and college years, because assets in those accounts will not be counted in the assistance formulas. You should not withdraw bucks form your retirement account to cover college since distributions will certainly boost your income, most likely cutting down aid eligibility.

  106. Many people don’t realize that when you shop on the internet, online shopping deals are not hard to find if you just look for them. There are a couple of different reasons why it is smart to find the shopping deals on the internet when shopping for anything.

  107. Lea Damm says:

    Back in the old days when their was only 186 dispensaries in Los Angeles, there was only one main website. Suddenly in late 2007, a new kind of site showed up (PotLocator) where the front page was as simple as Google, all you had to do was enter your zip code and you were given immediate results and directions to find your nearest dispensary. This was bliss compared to the yellow book type directories out there at the time. Then, as technology changed, the sites got better and the race began, PotLocator started facing some worthy competition but it’s starting to make more changes. Between me and my spouse we’ve used more dispensary locator websites than you can count.

  109. Oh mankind that you so much for your enter at right time. It helped me in my assignment. Thanks Alot

  110. There are several advantages to shopping online, the first one being the ability to shop at a time that is convenient to you, not just when the shops are open. The second advantage of shopping online is that goods are often cheaper as the seller does not have the costs of running a shop and having to pay wages to salespeople, insurance and all of the other running costs of a real world business.

  111. Online shopping provides consumers with many benefits. Many people have discovered the advantages of online shopping and hence, prefer to use this mode of shopping to buy their goods. This explains why there is an increasing number of people using online shopping. At times, besides being able to obtain their goods faster through shopping online, they can get their goods at prices lower than those offered by physical retail stores.

    man.. Untouchable was nuts, I fuckin love that album. The title track is dope as hell.

    But my favorite album was “The World Is Yours”. Songs like “Lettin’ Em Know”, “Still That Nigga” and “I’m Black” made that album funky as hell. Yet the story telling on “The Wall” and “Now I Feel Ya” are on such a mature level of MCing for those years… Face is my #1 MC, so it’s nice to see him on anyone’s top ten.
