My top 10 favorite rappers

Links are to youtube or vimeo (*cough* Jay Z on Tidal *cough*).
They're mostly NSFW lyrically.

In no particular numerical order, except via tiers:

1. Biggie
2. Gift of Gab
3. Q-Tip and Phife Dawg
4. Eminem

5. Rakim
6. Jay-Z
7. Nelly
8. André 3000

9. Tupac
10. Nicki Minaj

Bonus, honorable mention
11. Boots Riley
12. Lil Wayne

I'll recognize the unquestionable brilliance of others such as Nas, Killer Mike, and Mike Shinoda too.

This list brought to you because I just watched Lin-Manuel Miranda do his top 5.

The criterion was personal preference via lyricism mostly.
