wait... whats the difference between Best and Greatest? Their synonyms.

I take "Greatest Rapper Alive" to mean best current rapper. Rakim's has had a much greater impact in hip-hop and has had a greater career, but currently hes not the "greatest" his skills have deteriorated some what maybe, and hes old. Rap is a young mans game.

^When's the last time you actually heard from him?
That's like saying Young MC lost his skills.

"Best Rapper Alive" means who is currently the best rapper, not who was the greatest or who has had the best career.
you don't know what you are talking about. slick rick, probably more than any other rapper, has improved with age. until you listen to "the art of storytelling" you should stfu. he crushes all generations of rappers because he is witty, skillful with the lyrics, concepts and flow, and doesn't take himself too serious. in fact, slick rick, if you look at the guy's life, he's more gangsta than half these fakes but he never plays that card.

all i know is that nas is the best rapper living ...

artists like g rap, krs one, and rakim shouldnt even be brought into discussion because to me they are above the "goat" lists ... they are the founders and should already be placed at the highest possible point ...

cosign the last few comments to the fullest. hip hop needs to respects its founders more. when was the last time you heard a jazz fan cut up coltrane or bird, a classic music fan shit on beethoven, or a rocker rip up the beatles?

LL also said he's the best, big deal.

Mos Def needs to learn how to make a good album first.

whoa you sure you wanna say that? because i know many people including me who consider "Blackstar" and "Black on both sides" classics. add to that 3 grammy nominations...yeah, you might wanna revisit that statement.

Hmm.. you're right about ''Blackstar'' but I don't like his solo albums. Mostly because of the wack beats.
