The Mount Rushmore of Rap
Who would be on your Mount Rushmore of rappers?
This was really hard for me! There have been so many talented rappers throughout the years that it makes it almost impossible to choose only four. But, personally, I have to go with Tupac, Biggie, Dr. Dre, and Eminem. To me, these four artists revolutionized rap, molded the genre, and are nothing short of amazing. Their lyrics, rhymes, beats, hooks, and bass are guaranteed to suck you in, have you nodding your head and start vibing.
Another reason I chose them to be on my Mount Rushmore of rappers is because we can all relate to them one way or another. We can feel their emotions and visualize in our minds exactly what they're talking about.
Tupac, Biggie, Dr. Dre, and Eminem all broke so many records and touched the lives of millions through their music. Surprisingly, any controversy surrounding them never seemed to faze them: when the lights were the brightest, they performed at the highest level, and whatever personal or legal problems they had only added fuel to their fires. I could go on and on about why these four are at the top of my list, but what can I say that hasn't already been said?
In my opinion, I truly believe that these four are the best rappers/emcees in history. I know I might catch a lot of flack for leaving out rappers/emcees like Ice cube, Jay-Z, Nas, Krs-One, and Rakim, and also because Dr. Dre has only released a couple of albums and is mainly a producer, but that's ok. It's just my opinion.
I would like to know who's on your Mount Rushmore of rappers/emcees or who are the best rappers of all time and why. Share below!
