lol my number 10 was actually Bizzy but everytime I say Bizzy is in my top 10, mothafuckas start giving tantrums cause they want their opinions to be everyone elses opinion. This is my Top 10 Favorite MCs vid I have on youtube which is my real list. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-gKRzM54NQ. But Biggie (my number 10 on here) is one of my favorites. And I love Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. Bizzy got the best flow and lyricals in Bone and he got the best voice for the fast paced style of rapping.

I can't be bothered doing a top 10 so here's a list of my favourite MCs.

American MCs - GZA, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common, Rakim, Slick Rick (I know he's technically not American), Jay Z, 2Pac, Nas, KRS One, Andre 3000, Lauryn Hill, GFK, Method Man.
British MCs - JME, Sway, Kano, Akala, Ghetto/Ghetts.

Yeah, that'll do. I like others that's just off the top of my head.

nope,not that into that album

he's dope but nobody cares on him because of his drab rap style and voice.

nope,not the reason,he just sounds real amateuristic,and theres no excuse for that when you're in a group with the greatest hip hop producer of all time.

i don't get the hate on guru, he's fucking dope and hes half of what made gangstarr a legendary duo. you call him amateuristic but he sounds great on the mic, great enough to make 'moment of truth' a classic. you may not like it, but i bump it regularly and it stills sounds amazing. if you ask me, all of gangstarr's album except 'no more mr nice guy' are all solid.
