    This is the list I got so far. Anyone think it's good or should there be replacements? Let me know.

    The key I believe is if all the big main stream rappers are on here, that's what matters the most imho.

    Honestly I'm not a expert on rappers, so help from rap/hip hop aficionados on this thread would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Omissions I see as Kool Keith & Black Thought as @BFoe already said (Black Thought should win this hands down)

    Kool G Rap
    Lord Finesse
    Big Daddy Kane
    Pharoahe Monch
    Sean Price
    Posdnous
    Masta Ace
    Ras Kass
    AG

    I would say these guys 100% have to be in

    there is probably around half of the list you can ditch, and if you really want to make up the numbers I can list a bunch more instead of the some current popular rappers that are there that are absolute dog shit

    First off thank you and @BFoe for helping me out on this.

    Who would you remove to replace those guys you mentioned?

    And if you can make a list of a 100 rappers that would be great. If that's not too much to ask. lol

    lol @ 21 Savage, that guy might be the worst relevant rapper I've ever heard. He sounds like Droopy the Dog's autistic cousin

    Feel like any music poll (and hip hop especially) is gonna lean hilariously to the oldies because the average age here is like 45 so putting average pop-rappers from the modern-era like G-Easy and ASAP Rocky seems like wasted space.

    Lupe def deserves a spot, and if you are gonna put Future/Thugger on the list then you gotta have Gucci and Jeezy.

    Beastie Boys are not a rapper but a group, a group poll would be interesting though on the best group. No single rapper in Beastie boys would even make the top 100 rapper poll but together they are a force, the whole sum is more than the parts yadda yadda. A group poll would be interesting as it takes in a lot of factors such as production, live performance, discography etc that best rapper doesn't.

    MF DOOM is the GOAT though.
