I definetly listen to 90s Rap most, and I think it's the best. I like how it's more developed than 80s Rap but less poppy than a lot of today's rap. Today there are great artists in the underground, back then there were great artists in the mainstream and underground.

Don't think I'm some pioneer whore, either. I can accept when someone else perfects someone else's creation, but pioneers instantly get a fuckload of credit.
The people who founded the Americas (Christopher Columbus and whatnot) and also the framers of my great nation (merikuh) are given a ****load of credit, sure; but not for talent, just for their findings. If they're a piece of ****, that doesn't change just under their pioneering credit. I don't think pioneers should be called the best just because they found/created a sound; i'll show my gratitude to them absolutely, but that doesn't mean their sound wasn't raw or not quite developed into the greatness it could truly reach.

I don't think I can choose as of right now I listen to alot more modern Rap but I have recently got really into 90's Rap so I can see my taste changing pretty soon.

This is fairly difficult for me. If we're speaking terms of best artists, I go with the 90s. Now, the 00's have had some of the best rap I've ever heard, but sadly, its mostly unknown isn't what I'd classify as being the popular style of today. So uhh, I guess I'll go with 90s. I really like some late 80s stuff also though. I mean N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton was released in 88' and while the album may have some filler, it will always be a staple in the rap genre. Also released in the same year was Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, both of these albums helped me realize just how good and enjoyable rap can be though, so maybe I'm just biased? Plus Boogie Down Productions released Criminal Minds around the same time. I know the mid 80s had some really dated sounding stuff, but hey, it is dated. So, while all three decades has some very solid acts, I'm going with the 90s.

Why? They had more solid acts than the other two decades.

90s's-early 00's rap is pretty good. I like Dre, Snoop Dogg (back when he was Snoop Doggy Dogg), Coolio, and Outkast.
*insert witty remark here*

The 90s east coast scene is AWESOME.. So many great dudes comin outta the NY area at the time. 80s was too basic for my liking, i think 90s was the era of true talent on the mic. Modern rap is too flashy and just about making as much $ as possible and dudes aren't talented. Take me back to the days of Illmatic and Enter the 36 Chambers.
