    Rules - please read carefully!

    Which artists are eligible?

    Any artist who is recognized as a rapper, or who raps as part of an act. However, an artist should be voted for solely on their rapping skills rather than a favourite artist who occasionally raps on the side.

    Can I vote for groups?

    No, as this is a list of 100 great rappers, you may only vote individuals, though you may vote for specific members of groups...e.g Left Eye of TLC, Andre 3000 of Outkast or Flavor Flav of Public Enemy.

    When does the voting end?

    1st April with the countdown following shortly after.

    Where can I get some ideas?
    BET's Top 50 Most Influential Rappers (2011)
    About.com Top 50 MC's (2007)
    Celebrity Networth's Top 50 Richest Rappers
    NME's Top 30 Rappers
    Wikipedia List of Hip Hop Acts



    How do I vote?

    The only method of voting is via PM to me a list of your top 50 rappers, Please award your #1 act 50 points, the #2 act 49 points etc. You must send a list of AT LEAST 20 acts, your #1 act will score 50 points regardless of whether you send 20 acts or 50 acts.

    How should I send my list?
    Please send as follows:
    #50 [ACT] ("favourite song") ....1pt
    #49 [ACT] ("favourite song") .....2pts
    etc.....

    So begin with your 50th favourite (which receives one point) at the top, down to your most favourite (your #1) at the bottom...for an extra bit of data which we can have some fun with during the countdown, I'd like you to put your favourite track by that artist (either as a solo or feature i.e which track they delivered the best rap on) next to your choice.


    If you have any queries about specific artists and their eligiblity, please raise them in the thread - and we can decide there. If you have any other questions, please do the same!

    Get voting!


    PS thanks Wayne, I did steal some of your work in writing my rules

    I'm quite ignorant when it comes to this style tbh, I hope Missy & M.I.A. do well if they're eligible that is, well M.I.A. I mean.

    LOL at Khia making the banner, although I'm more offended by Lil Wayne's presence

    This will be fun, let me get my thinking cap on

    Kanye sampled Paul Simon and Yoko in his songs. You should include him in your list.

    Lies! I'm not participating in this one, not my bag really apart from the odd artist.

    Let me get my votes together but I have a few questions -
    - Is M.I.A really rap because to me it's always been more electronic + experimental?
    - Are artists like Beyonce and Kid Cudi considered acceptable because they lean more towards R&B (for Beyonce) and Alternative (for Kid Cudi)?

    The idea is to base your opinion on how that act raps, so Kid Cudi and M.I.A certainly rap I'd say, regardless of the production. Beyonce may have an occasional rap in her tracks, but personally I wouldn't rate her too highly as a rapper.

    Why are people bringing up Beyonce? I don't know much about rap but I know not to bring her in to the equation! Geez!! Just listen to an actual rap artist perhaps!
