No and no. Hopsin's corny and Immortal Technique is boring and hasn't really put out music recently.

It's hard to say who's the best. Some people who I think might deserve it based on their recent work(2012 & 2013).

-El-P and Killer Mike both put out extremely good projects last year(RAP Music and C4C) and then came out with the Run the Jewels mixtape which was just as good.


-Mr. Mutha****in' eXquire put out Kismet this year which was incredible IMO. He's got a really unique style which I feel he perfected on Kismet (his past projects are not as good as his style was still a big rough) and great choice of beats.


-Ghostface Killah has always been nice. He put out the 12 Reasons to Die album earlier this year which I really enjoyed.


-Action Bronson has been consistently putting out great projects. Between 2012 and 2013 he put out Blue Chips, Rare Chandeliers, and Saab Stories which were all very good.


-Kendrick is probably best artist in the mainstream. GKMC wasn't perfect, but it was very good. A lot of people think he's overrated now, but whatever I'm still a fan of him.


That's all the ones i can think of right now.

Hopsin is corny and Kendrick isn't? Lol like 80% of mainstream is corny and synonymous with girls, drugs, and drinking.

Kendrick really isn't corny. I know a lot of people don't enjoy his music, but he's extremely talented. Also, he doesn't just talk about that. He actually speaks out against the alcohol abuse(swimming pools) and promotion of drugs. He does a great job of balancing a mainstream sound with actual talent and content. I think a lot of people hate Kendrick because of his mainstream sound. I'm not saying he's the best rapper ever, but he's definitely bringing something new.

Reason I think Hopsin is corny is because he depends on gimmicks, especially his stuff from a couple of years ago. I do think he's improved though.

I agree that 90% of the mainstream is lame though.

BTW most rappers talk about that stuff. What really separates great artists from bad ones is being able to balance the more party-oriented content with more introspective/deep content.

Nas is a legend. Possible GOAT. As a whole I agree, but his most recent project (Life is Good) wasn't up to par as a whole. Although Illmatic and It Was Written are better than most artists whole catalog.

Eminem any argument against it is futile.

Kendrick. Lyrically he is better than 99% of mainstream rappers

Eminem is good, but as I said before, Nas is a legend and when it comes to rappers who are alive, there is nobody who can stand against him. Possibly Jay-Z, but I'm personally not a fan.

Nas is a better rapper than eminem in many ways i wont argue that at all, i personally think Nas is the best of all time, but i feel like whenever someone asks this question they are referring to someone who is still making mainstream music.
