I made this nomination in one of the many other 'Greatest Rapper/Artist/MC/whatever in hip-hop' threads a while back, but since this one actually counts, I'm just going to copy and paste it here. So sorry for the double post in advance, I'm a terrible person...

Also, to be clear, I'm nominating Rakim as a solo artist. Not as a member of Eric B. & Rakim.

So, like many other people, I consider greatness to be something earned over time. So I'm not going to give this nomination to anyone who has came out recently, or even within the last 5 years. The Nomination for best rapper ever is....

Rakim, AKA: God MC



Rakim, formerly of the duo Eric B. & Rakim, has been serving up flow lessons since back in the old school. He is a major influence to any and every rapper who ever amounted to anything. Rakim's lyical stylings along with his smooth and direct delivery make for some of the best verses ever put on tape. Rakim found solo success after splitting with Eric B., upon the release of 'The 18th Letter' (1997), and the follow up 'The Master' (1999). Rakim's latest release, 'The Seventh Seal' was released in 2009. 'The Seventh Seal' marks the second return of the great God MC, showing that he still has what it takes to run with the best.

Overall, I think there are a handful of rappers that can match the raw skill and delivery of Rakim, and also a few that can match his influence on the genre of hip-hop as a whole. But there is no one that has done both for as long as Rakim has.

Hey guys, I got snow-stranded away from internet. I'm going to start organizing the tiers now, I'll probably post the first few polls on Sunday because not only did god take a dump on me, school did too.

I'm sure no one is going to vote for them in the end but I do think Run DMC, Afrika Bambaataa, Kurtis Blow, Slick Rick, KRS-One and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five all at least deserve a mention in this thread for the level of their influence on hip hop in general.

Okay so now that I've got everything sorted out, here's some info.

There will be 18 polls, spread over the next (approximately) 2.5 weeks, following that will have 6 polls of 3, which will occur over six days, and then we'll have two polls of 3 posted at the same time and then we'll have the final poll which will be a head to head battle of the two greatest acts ever. So, all in all, this should be wrapped up in a month or so. EXCITED? YEAH? YEAH?
