The man who tops many best emcee lists gives his favorites from Queens

Ask any emcee who started rapping before the turn of the century who their all-time favorite emcee is and a good percentage will tell you Kool G. Rap. While the Kool Genius may top many lists, he also has one of his own. He recently spoke to VladTV and revealed his top 5 from Queens.

"Run-DMC, right off the top, because they had made so many classic hits that even if you throw them on to this day, it will take you back and you will lose your f*cking mind. And just for that alone, I miss Jam Master Jay so much because you know you will never see Run-DMC on-stage again like the way they started out." G Rap continued with another Def Jam legend. "LL Cool J. LL because he's one of the first rappers to bring a complex flow to the game. Maybe not so much with his commercial records, but records like 'I'm Dangerous' and songs like that, he really displayed his lyrical and flow capabilities. I mean, he really showed out. For that time. Nas. Nas because he's everything you would want to hear out of a rapper. He's lyrical, he's witty, he's got wordplay, he has the ability to tell a story."

"Mobb Deep because Mobb Deep, they came out at a time where I felt that real gritty, gritty hardcore street rap was needed," G. Rap said of the Queensbridge duo he influenced so heavily. "Because there was the rise of the West Coast at the time and it was like, no one was holding the crown down on our side. So Mobb Deep, I give a lot of credit to for like being one of the representatives of East Coast rap and New York and you know, things of that nature. Holding it down."

"[Lastly], I would have to say 50 [Cent]. I would have to say 50. I mean, 50, he just, at the time he came out, the impact he had on the world, it was like that hardcore street shit -- 50 just brought it back," Kool G. said in a surprise to some. "He just put f*cking NY on his back and was like, 'I'ma hold it down, don't even worry about it.' [He] brought that gritty sh*t back to the game. And on top of that, he had a h*ll of a story. If somebody was to write a 50 Cent movie before 50 Cent's life actually unfolded like that, you'd be like, 'Yeah, this is definitely fiction. This would never happen to nobody.' Somebody that get shot nine times, survive that and then blow up and become one of the biggest artists in the f*cking game and kind of corner the market almost d*mn near, the whole world like 'GG-GGG?'"

you cant argue with the list.. he gives good explanations for his choices..

and its a great list..

also at the end of the day its HIS list..

its annoying when people moan about someone elses choices..

just because THEY dont favor them for their list..

Good List. Queens has produced some of the best rappers ever. Brooklyn/Queens/The Bronx has made the best rappers.

Brooklyn/Queens/The Bronx has made the best rapers.

i wonder how someone finds this out?
do they walk around the greater nyc area getting raped, and then compare how enjoyable the rapes were?

i think someone needs to ask g rap who his top 5 RAPERS from queens are.

your opinion on this matter is valued as much as the shit im takin right now. you cant even spell RAPPER

anyways, cant deny that list and if anyone can be considered legit to make a top 5 its G Rap

I literally laughed out loud at 50...but that's his opinion. I knew he would have Nas and Mobb.

I'm not 50's biggest fan but Get rich or die tryin and especially Power of the dollar are great stuff! Tons of good rappers have fallen off, it is not like fifty has invented that ability.

Not a fan of 50, I'm sure the majority on here aren't either but as others have said, it's his list.

I tell you all who is the best raper in Harlem...

...Immortal Technique, hands down.

People hating on 50 non stop are just trippin, dude has some serious tunes in his catalogue. 9 out 10 you people who hate on dude, are the same type people that bought up two copies of GRODT.

His list is on point. I agree with it all. His points of 50 are a true, but 50 is corny these days

Pharoah Monch is should be on that list.

No he shouldn't. It is his personal top 5, his taste, his favourites. You can't tell him what he should like unless you litteraly have same ears as him.

Go make your own top 5 if you disagree.
