Who else would you put in the top ten of all time?

Duaghters name isn't even Hayden. This kinda stuff is always the knock on Eminem, but he's been one of the most diverse rappers in the game for over a decade.

Can we just end the Eminem discussion? It's tedious as balls. Now this is what I want to know... who are the two goons who voted for Paul Wall?

Dude, shut the fuck up.

Really diverse stuff too, he's come a long way and still kills verses. I don't know how anyone who likes rap can really think Em sucks.
Eminem--diverse? Since when? There's the retarded shock value that Eminem often tries to garner attention off of. His brand of "shock rap" is elementary/annoying at best. Then there's the stupid "tasteless" jokes that are just as juvenile and irritating. It's all just really cheesy and lame--he comes off as some annoying white kid trying to appear "edgy."

But beyond Eminem's "edgy and daring" side, we get his weak references, overrated rhyming patterns (sure, he's good at rhyming, but he gets way too much credit, like he's reinvented lyrical technique--he hasn't), and his oh so deep, personal problems. He has a daughter that he cares about, he doesn't like his mom very much, and he's had some drug problems. It's not like he conveys any of these issues in particularly interesting ways.

Why don't you tell me why he's good? I don't want to hear about how he has technical skill--I don't care, I know he does, but that doesn't instantly qualify him as the greatest/one of the greatest rappers ever, especially considering he isn't even "the best" when it comes to technical capabilities.

I just voted for Paul Wall

I know he's probably the least talented artist on this whole list.. but the truth is I simply enjoy his music more than anyone else here. I just got his new album too and he's still catchy as hell.

EDIT: What IIIII Want to know is who the hell voted for ICP???
