Any list of most influential rappers that doesn't include Rakim is a flawed list.

lol like i said feel free to hate. And obviously rakim and N.W.A influenced rap and helped it evolve but in my opinion they didn't do as much as the other 10 i posted. Originally rakim was in there as was N.W.A but i changed it round for public enemy and will smith. Personally although N.W.A and Rakim (with help from eric b) did a lot for rap and the hiphop culture they would probably be 11th and 12th on my list.

Afrikka Bambatta (sp?) should dominate the first list.

I'd personally say that Rakim would rank above the following in your list in terms of influence in Hip Hop:

Public Enemy
The Beastie Boys
Will Smith

and maybe Run DMC.

That's in terms of influence on the music itself, as opposed to its mainstream success.
