    Just a nice gentle stoney night time thread...

    Since there's been a lot of HipHop chat recently, who are your All-time favourite MCs?

    Not your favourite tracks or groups, but which rappers can you always listen to?

    Always pick up on the lyrics whenever you hear their voice, even on the bad tracks?

    Mine would have to be (in no Order):

    Rakim
    Guru
    Eazy E
    Method Man

    Sometimes:

    Krs-One
    Snoop

    Think about it.

    Notorius BIG! R.I.P. :slayer:
    He has to be the illest MC that has ever graced this universe!
    IMHO, he had the illest flows that no other MC could ever imitate.
    I mean.. .he could rap about taking a shit & he would probably still sound dope as fuck!

    Xzibit - pre 2001 was an awsome mc til he hooked up with dre,
    but his attitute and style was what fuelled his flow, now he sounds like the rest

    Andre 3000 outta Outkast is a mo’ fo’in god. over 5 albums and many collaborations -
    he has developed an grown into an unrivalled, unique mc, imo.

    Biggie will always be the best ever.

    Reggie Noble aka Redman always has the tightest flows, no matter how rediculous.

    Benefit is also pretty ill on the mic.

    I know there's many, but he is THE smoothest UK MC, and my favourite beside Chuck D overall.

    oh yes, Chuck D.
    I was waiting for the mention, but its not coming I guess.
