Who Is The Greatest Guest MC Of All Time?

If you guys haven’t heard Ludacris and DJ Drama’s The Preview yet, I suggest you download it.

Luda’s on there spitting like he has something to prove over all types of sickstrumentals like Young Buck’s “Get Buck” and Prodigy’s “Keep It Thorough.” I think it’s fair to say The Preview deserves to be mentioned alongside Nas and DJ Green Lantern’s The Nigger Tape as one of the year’s best mixtapes. I’m sure Immortal Technique’s 3rd World deserves a mention, but I’m not done listening to it yet. But while peeping The Preview, I got to “Throw It Up” featuring Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne and it dawned on me. That track, quite possibly features the three greatest guest spitters of all time.

Plenty of dudes have had their cameo king moment, but when it’s all said and done, it comes right back to Ludacris and Busta Rhymes. Weezy deserves a mention amongst the G.O.A.T.s because, though he’s roughly on a three-year run on the cameo circuit, no one has ever put out so much material. But before crowning a cameo G.O.A.T, I thought it fair to highlight a few cats who gave this trio a run for their money at a point in time.

Canibus (1997-1999): Never has someone outshined so many lyricists. “4,3,2,1” (Method Man, Redman, DMX), “Beasts From The East” (Redman, Lost Boyz don’t count), “Fantastic Four” (Big Pun, Nore, Cam’Ron), “Gone Til November” RMX (Wyclef Jean), “No Airplay” (Wyclef Jean) “Making A Name For Ourselves” (Common), “Uni-4-Orm” (Ras Kass, Heltah Skeltah), “Hell” (Pharoahe Monch), “Desperados” (AZ, Nature), etc. The man was a beast. Notice, Foxy and Nas in their prime, didn’t jump on The Firm record. Jay-Z introduced Bis to Clef, but he didn’t sign him. He signed Memphis Bleek instead. Dudes were scared to jump on records with Bis.

[Blogger’s Note: Bis outshining Keith Murray on “Some Shit” is up for debate]

DMX (1997-1998): Similar to Bis, X had a great cameo run to set up his debut album, It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot. He continued appearing on records once his solo career took off, but not with the same frequency.

Big Pun (1997-1998): I remember thinking X and Bis were the cameo kings at the time until I read [in The Source] that he was the most sought after guest MC in 1998. I believe the number was 28 guest verses for that year.

Jay-Z (Y2K): Hov could easily be one of the G.O.A.T.’s, but he’s a tad more selective than members of our Big 3. Still, he’s had his moments. Outdoing Jadakiss, who is no slouch himself, on “Best Of Me” and “Fiesta” remixes comes to mind.

M.O.P (Y2K): Post-“Ante Up,” Billy Danze and Lil Fame hardened poppier acts like Fabolous, Diddy and even Boy Band L.F.O.

Bun B (2005): Spearheading his “Free Pimp C” campaign with countless cameos, including Beyonce’s “Check On It,” Bun’s buzz eventually lead to his solo album, Trill, earning a gold plaque.

Honorable Mentions: Method Man, Redman and Snoop Dogg have been consistent guest MCs throughout their careers, but they never came close to dethroning the kings. Andre 3000 is currently Hip-Hop’s best guest guest MC, but he just doesn’t do it enough.

Now, Weezy is the current cameo king hands down. Busta himself, never produced so many guest verses in such a short span. But only time will tell if Weezy can keep cranking the collabos for another 13 years. Probably not. As for Luda, he’s going 8 years strong, but it’s still pale in comparison to Bus’ 16-year tenure. Truth be told, Bus, Wayne and Luda have similar resumes. All have outshined a number of established artists, all have destroyed cameos to the point that they’re solo albums have been somewhat questioned. And all have worked with artists ranging from backpackers to pop singers. In the end, Bus has just been doing it for too long with little to no dip. The dungeon dragon destroyed A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” and never looked back. It’s only right that Bus-A-Bus be crowned the collabo G.O.A.T. Anybody beg to differ?

  • TzDaGoD

    Lil Wayne ain’t no MC, who da FUCK put dat shit up

    • Rizob

      Wow, If Busta Rhymes, someone who has been artistically stuck in mud with that same, outdated ass flow he got. And Ludacris who is King of Cartoon Rap can be MC’s, then Wayne fits the bill as well. I kno The Wayne Hate is at all time High, but keep it moving pimpin. you didnt even mention the post… Ignorance is bliss i guess…..

    • Mr. Fly as a Pelican

    • SouthCakC23

      LIL WAYNE IS NOT AN MC!!! He’s a rapper; get it right!

      “Andre 3000 is currently Hip-Hop’s best guest guest MC, but he just doesn’t do it enough”

      Andre has been guest MC’ing just as long as Busta Rhymes has. I guess you miss all of the guest MC’ing that both Andre and Big Boi did throughout their entire career.

      Busta Rhymes was an obvious pick.

      Canibus was an obvious pick.

      Luda? How the hell did Luda get included as one of the G.O.A.T. guest MC’s of all time? Pun? MOP? Wow.

    • ko

      Biggie is the alltime best guest MC. Check his verses on these tracks.

  • 239allday

    I hate these kind of blogs because so many niggas fill my head (no homo) whenever you ask that “who/what is greatest” type of question. If we talkin bout this era Luda is definitely up there, Lil Wayne guest verses are so common now that no one gives a fuck. Kiss is one of my favorites on a guest spot. So is Cassidy and Fab. Lloyd Banks used to be a monster. Bun B was killin it in 04′/05′ year. But whenever Busta Bus and Andre is featured it’s a problem.

    It may have taken me an extra year to graduate high school but I know 3+9 = muhfuckin 12.

    Honarable Mention
    Eminem

  • Duke Dickensworth

    Eminem is a fruit… and by that, I mean he’s not a fucking guest artist very often now is he? Mr. President sir, I actually chuckled when reading your comment. I can just picture you with a cup of herbal tea nodding your head to that fucking song with Dido.

  • Peru

    I cant understand why the FUCK niggas constantly feel the need to come to Lil Wayne’s defense every time somebody make a statement about the dude…”I kno The Wayne Hate is at all time High”…Nigga Please!!! The hate of the Wayne Hater is at an all time high. GET THE FUCK OFF OF HIS NUTS…Birdman got that spot occupied, LOL!!! But Busta is DEFINITELY the GOAT “Feature” artist. Dudes versus be sick on features but I think he has some self hatred cuz his albums be very mediocre…

  • http://yahoomail.com Offical!

    Luda hands down, his recent collab with Sean Garrett was nasty! He never disappoints, and the Im so hood rmx “Im in the zone homes, going 4 the 3pt conversion,Im so hood that ludacris shoulda been on the orginal version!” Luda is the GOAT of Collabs; Busta is a beast also but doesnt always deliver, and some of waynes collab I question; but this would be my top 5 collab artist.
    1.Luda
    2.Lil Wayne
    3.Busta Rhymes(Got respect 4 him for the longevity, but i know im not the one thats notice how he has switched over to making more street type music than the abstract music im used 2 from him)
    3.Kanye(Killed that put on and go back to that track”Selfish;” just need 2 do more)
    5.R.Kelly(Even though is sick in the head the dude is good @ what he does)

  • KLETEWOOD

    I’m listening to that Mix TAPE right now. 3 spins in a row. SHITS TIGHT. Download that! I get sick of Lil John saying “GAngsta GRillz” a thousand times.

    Sick songs;
    “Been Puttin on – secret song”.
    “Still Spittin”
    “Shonuff revisited”.
    “Look what I got”
    The “vocalizer” is hella funny

    BTW: Out here in the BAY…E-40 is the greatest MC of all time. He’s on cameo’s all over underground artists.

    • Tha Ace

        • Tha Ace

          who cares if he’s worked with all those people….still doesn’t make the fat fuck any good does it? mike jones has plenty of collabs….he sucks too! same thing with master p. I have been listenin sonny, that’s why i think he’s trash! the most annoying voice in the whole industry….hands down

        • KLETEWOOD

          One question:

          If E-40 has the most annoying voice in the whole industry…..

          WHY DID HE HOST THE VOICE OF THE BET AWARDS LAST YEAR?

          Mike Jones can’t touch that list. He collabs with Texas rappers.

          Mater P had a dynasty at one time.

          YOU TRY TO BE THA ACE….BUT, THE KING IS BACK.

        • Tha Ace

          now we’ve resorted to jackin dr dre lines in our arguement? what are you 14?

          anyway, try namin one person….just one that has a more annoying voice than E-40. This should be very interesting.

          Oh and like i said, mike jones and master p both have plenty of collabs and are both pitiful

          trust me when i say…..98% of heads outside california think E-40 is complete trash. Don’t even mention his record sales because the heads aren’t the ones buyin that shit

        • KLETEWOOD

          Just one? okay…Mystikal

          I’m chilling with the 2% who really understand street slang.

        • Tha Ace

          nah i believe E-40 still wins that

          oh and since someone speaks with slang that makes them a good rapper huh? they come up with somethin here and there that catches on in friggin ebonics and they got skills on a microphone huh? guess i’ve learned somethin today…..fuck outta here son u lookin dumber each time u post

        • KLETEWOOD

          Man…Your a fucking Super HATER! All my shit was positive until now.

          What..Did E-40 Fuck your MAMA? Thats why you hate him so bad.

          Mike Jones ran through your sister and MAster P nailed your girlfriend.

          You can’t understand slang…so you havn’t learned nothing.

    You people must really be off your rockers. Busta? Luda? Wayne? E-40? And Andre 3k dosent even get an honorable mention becuase he dosent put out alot of material??? Now Luda, Busta, and Wayne are all great in their own aspects, but c’mon!!

    ANDRE 3000 VERSE ON ART OF STORYTELLING 4 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WAYNE’S LIFE

    ANDRE 3000 VERSE ON ART OF STORYTELLING 4 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THAN 1/2 OF BUSTA’S VERSES

    ANDRE 3000 VERSE ON ART OF STORYTELLING 4 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THAN 1/2 LUDA’S VERSES

    ANDRE 3000 VERSE ON WALK IT OUT REMIX >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WAYNE’S WALK IT OUT REMIX

    ANDRE 3000 VERSE ON ROYAL FLUSH >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THAN ALL 3 OF THEIR ALBUMS

    ANDRE 3K IS THE KING OF GUEST APPEARANCES!! EVERYTIME HE’S ON A TRACK, PEOPLE QUIET DOWN JUST TO HEAR WHAT HE SAYS!!

    REAL honorable mentions: Eminem, Nas, Fabolous, Jay Z, E-40, Bun B, Redman, and I guess Lupe killed a couple of tracks also.

    • SouthCakC23

      this is very true. I’ve been in the club and people will slow down from dancing, damn near STFU, just to hear Andre’s verses.

  • http://www.myspace.com/twainonline Dub

    I never reply with comments but this is something me and my partner have discussed for years and I would have to give it to Luda hands down. Reason being: his consistently, out of the rightful top 3 you nominated(top 3 is money might I add) he is the only one who never had a subpar verse on someone else’s record.

    Personally, I give Ludacris the distinction as “The Only Rapper To Ever Kill Every Guest Appearance He Ever Had”

  • E-Luv

    ya’ll 4get bout da midwest…catz like Bone thug…twista..ect

  • BIGNAT

    it’s busta he always comes through and just goes crazy on shit

  • Ace Boogie

    Luda and 3 Stacks got it with Busta rounding out the top 3. Shit i wanna add canibus in there but it gets too complicated………….anybody remember young buck droppin some good ass cameos back in the day

    PS. WHEN THE FUCK IS JADAKISS GOING TO DROP ANOTHER ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Toss-up between Pun and Busta….

    A few thoughts:

    - LL is the king of posse cuts.

    - I am suprised Big Poppa was left out:

    Da B sides
    Brooklyns Finest
    Keep ya hands high (EXTREMELY SLEPT ON TRACY ‘TRAE’ LEE JOINT)
    Dolly my baby remix
    Victory
    Can’t you see
    Real love remix
    Only you remix
    Flava in your ear
    and god knows what else im leaving out….

    QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

    • Oneofthemyo’s

      CO-SIGN MY NIG ON BIGGIE OVERALL, PLUS THE TRACY LEE JOINT MY DAWG PUT ME UP ON THAT.

      • Chaka

        You guys stop being sentimental and quit all those Biggie talk.The brother is no collabo king.He has limited materials.Peace

  • Ace $

    Bus hot don’t get me wrong, Wayne hot too. But that the boy Luda is a a PROBLEM!!! He consistently bring it on ever track. Name a track that Luda ain’t bring it out? I dare you. On top of that Luda is the best in the South hands down. Point,blank, period. I like Wayne, but when it comes to lyrics he can’t touch Luda. It ain’t what Wayne say, it’s how he say it. That’s what makes him hot.

  • shawn

    lil wayne

  • Cinsere

    Quantity does not equal quality. Wayne shouldn’t even be on this list.

    And let me get this straight…

    Live at the BBQ (the original scene stealing cameo)
    Verbal Intercourse (GOAT guest verse)
    Eye for an Eye
    Let My Niggaz Live
    Fast Life
    Why remix
    John Blaze
    In Between Us
    Music For Life
    Me & Nas Bring to you Hardest
    Streets of New York
    Grand Finale

    Nas has put it work on Rakim, G. Rap, Rae, Ghost, Common, Pun, Scarface, Slick Rick, Meth, DMX…including 2 of the most memorable guest verses ever! Plus all the classic cameos with Queens brethren (Mobb Deep, CNN, Nature, Run DMC), R&B cameos and remixes (Mary J, R Kelly, Mariah Carey, Lloyd, Bobby Valentino)… But he doesn’t get a mention on this list?! WTF?!

    (And as far as “Notice, Foxy and Nas in their prime, didn’t jump on The Firm record”…have you not heard the full version of Desperados?! The whole crew had spit, they just cut out Nas and Foxy cuz they needed room for a hook, and they were already stars at that point so they didn’t need the shine.)

    • Chaka

      Brother we are talking about a collabo king here.Nas does not have enough collabo materials than Busta or Lil’Wayne or Luda.He does not even come out strong in his collabos than those guys have.Check out ‘John Blaze’(Pun and Chef outshined him),’just a moment’(Quan outshined him)e.t.c.Peace

      • Cinsere

        I’m not saying he’s the best at it, homie…but how do you have two of the most memorable guest verses ever and not be brought up in the convo?! And I beg to differ…other than possibly Pun or AZ, nobody’s ever outshined him on a song.

        LOL @ Quan outshining Nas…bwahahahaha

  • alex

    Eminem verse on Jay-z’s Renegades – the best feature.

    Wayne is the funnest rapper to listen to. He makes every song better. That’s why he’s ‘Mr. Featuring Lil Wayne’ and everybody wants him on their record.

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    You bitch ass niggas lost my commen€t well your loss cause it was on some monumental shit you bitch, well n e way if you got to default to one person let it be busta rhymes mcloud of the clan mcloud/flipmode.

  • HU

    TWISTA – Why did it take 50 comments before he was mentioned? He has worked with everyone and is your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. He steals every song because no can do what he does. One example is the song Let’s Go with Royce Da 5’9” Royce ripped the first two verses but the beat cuts down to introduce Twista, he then comes in to wrap up the track. Don’t forget the acapella Iz That Yo Bitch verse on Jay-Z’s Showtime Concert. This list can go on forever. Twista is easily the best guest of all time.

    • Chaka

      Twista is too obscure to be a collabo King.He does nothing special in his collabos other than tongue twist.I got to go with the brother who wrote the article,Busta is by far the collabo king.He always come out strong in his collabos,even when he is allowed to only flip the hook.Check out’oh my God’(Tribe called quest),’Victory’(Puff & Biggie),’Niggas wanna act’(Mase),’like father,like son’(the Game)e.t.c Peace

  • BX POSTER CHILD

    DAT TITLE GOES TO BIG PUN. BUT SOME OF THE OTHER CONTENDERS WOULD BE:

    JAY-Z
    BUSTA RHYMES
    LUDACRIS
    DMX
    LIL’ WAYNE
    EMINEM
    FABOLOUS
    NOTORIOUS B.I.G.

  • paychexx

    i gotta say luda

    bussa bus been around so he had some very good guest cameos

    weezy doesnt really say anything on his cameos

    luda straight wreck shit, after hearing collabos with luda on it, that pretty much who you remember the most.

    but snoop and fab seem to never turn down cameos.

    peace.

  • ErvGotti85

    And lets not forget Head to head Fab beat Wayne twice on 6 minutes of death, and on You ain’t got nothin on me. In fact Juelz beat him on that song too.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com W

    2Pac for “Gotta Get Mine” with MC Breed; “Gangsta Team” with South Central Cartel; “Call It What You Want” with Above The Law and Money B; “Got 2 Survive” with Young Lay, Ray Luv, Mac Mall; “Niggas Done Changed” with Richie Rich; “Jealous Got Me Strapped” with Spice 1; “Dusted ‘n’ Disgusted” with E-40, Mac Mall, Spice 1; “Million Dollar Spot” with E-40 and B-Legit; “Thug Luv” with Bone Thugs N Harmony;
    “Same Song” with Digital Underground; “Wussup Wit The Luv?” with Digital Underground

    • Tha Ace

      you see W, you have posted ALL his guest spots over 6 years of rappin and none are worth a shit except for “thug luv” and the only people he got on records with that were worth a shit were C-bo, Bone thugs and Digital Underground…..pac doesn’t even come to mind as a guest MC that should be mentioned

      now i like pac just as much as the next man, but you have resorted to senseless, blind dick riding….shame on you, thats a 4 point penalty

      • Chaka

        The joint['got my mind...'] with Method,Red & Doggpound was cool.Even the joint off Spice1′s 94 album with method[cant remember the name now].Yeah Pacs guest appearances are way too ordinary for him to be a collabo king.That what I have been trying to point out to some brothers on this site when they mentioned the inconsistent Nas, the limited Biggie, and the shallow jay-z,as collabo kings.These brothers are way too ordinary on their guest appearances when compare with the likes of 3stacks,Busta,Luda,and even the sulky Wayne.Peace my brothers.

        • Tha Ace

          got my mind made up is off all eyez on me so it wouldn’t be considered a guest spot for pac

  • savage82

    i agree wit 40 water
    but twista been doing it for a while too

  • gkid12345

    Fuck this list, wheres Big Poppa at? Thats the greatest mc/rapper/storyteller of all time

  • http://lionellplaatjies@yahoo.com Gee-Money

    Busta Bus Is definatly the G.O.A.T but hey main Luda has been doing his thing too he really kills erry thing he gets on no doubt

    how the hell this thing go tell me Im wrong when I say 2+8=10

  • http://xxl lb

    REDMAN THE BEST!! PERIOD

    a list with the songs he destroys and theirs more

    REACT
    4321
    syphany
    that obice trice remix/ dam he kill that
    biggie born again album/ kilt that too

  • EReal

    Eminem. Period.

    He shits on everyone he does a cameo on. It becomes his song. Fuck quantity. I’ll take quality.

    I can go make 100 mixtapes in my attic right now, it doesnt mean they’re good.

    Eminem and Nas are tied inmy book because they tend to steal the song from whoever they’re rappin with.

    I do agree on Luda, Id throw Buck in there too, and Snoop also.

  • no hate

    Taking the Bun of that time period is a discredit to the earlier, better Bun. Back when Rap-A-Lot, Cash Money, and No Limit were poppin’, you couldn’t find a more ferocious MC– ANYWHERE!!! Yeah, more people caught wind of him when all the “FREE PIMP C” buzz was goin’ on, but trust me, that still wasn’t the caliber of MC Bun was. I said all that to say this: My top three have always been Busta, Bun, and Luda. All three have done enough appearances and had great, scene-stealing impact on most, if not all of them. Wayne’s on his way, but he’s not there yet.

    • SouthCakC23

      I still can’t see how some want to put Jay-Z ahead of Bun when Bun Crushed Jay-Z’s verse on Big Pimpin so bad that Jay had to do a remix and add a verse just so that he didn’t look as bad.

  • Real Talk

    Yeah I’d say Eminem and Jada should be on this list as well. Especially considerin Em kills rappers on they own shit. You guys seriously missed TI too, he’s one of the bigger rappers right now too unlike Em and Jada whos best days might be behind them. Not sure why Tip wasn’t mentioned at all.

    Yo is it me or is this Spam sum thing retarded. I’m pretty sure 2+8=10 and 3+10=13, but this thing keeps tellin me I’m wrong.

    • EReal

      I just keep refreshing the page until it sends my comment thru.

      Try that. But its not you, the spam thing is retarded.

  • jojo

    I still don’t understand why artists are being left out because of limited material. I can explain to you why Flava in ya Ear was more relevent than ANY weezy collabo. The truth is theres not really any weezy collabos that really blow my mind. An abundance of material with no memorable content should NOT be a relevent method of criteria.

    • EReal

      Exactly, I’ll take quality over quantity, and my criteria would be actual rhyme structure, lyricsm, and song stealing ability.

  • grp03

    “yo get Dre on the phone quick, tell him Em just murdered me on my own shit”

    seriously this spam shit has to go. i type in the answer correctly and it still says error. maybe you dumbasses at XXL don’t actually know the sum of 5 + 8

  • Mitch

    BUS-A-BUS!

  • Stylee

    I’m going to say the MOST UNDERRATED emcee in the history of Hip Hop. Canibus. Lil wayne call his wackass self the greatest rapper alive when in reality canibus was spittin lightyears better then him 12 years ago. Big Ups to Canibus. Lyrically he is one of the greatest to ever pick up the mic, regardless of his track record with albums. After all Hip Hop ain’t all about movin units!

  • Atlatino

    I would say Raekwon but don’t do enough collabos to make the list ask Outkast

    Jadakiss?-same thing
    Trick Daddy-gettin up there
    Scarface-the dark cloud of any track
    Ice Cube-The original track killer
    Killer Mike-His buzz is rebuilding
    Ghostface-nevermind he’s more a recruiter
    Phonte-Singing or spittin
    Sean Price-Matrix heads need to research

    Always catching the sleepers

  • droopey

    At the moment I would have to say Weezy is the best guest MC but im a commercial nigga from the UK.

  • DETROIT

    E-40

  • http://blockishot.com/blog kirk

    Snoop hands down every song snoop get on thats a single cracks period.
    Snoop also use to be fallin off but he back on now but the goat is Jay-Z don’t ever make a post about the goat mentioning Ludacris I’ll find you to slap you and this is not a threat I’m just saying you sound dumb. I don’t care about no mixtape mixtapes don’t make greats. Ludacris just isn’t eligible for the title he has relied on sexual commercial and pop music too much to build his career. To be the G.O.A.T. you had to at least have an era of your career built completely with rhymes none of these dude have reasonable doubt or blueprint type records except Busta and Snoop and I’ll give you Big Pun and DMX and Andre 3000 who is the second best rapper alive after Jay-Z.

  • Chris S

    well, eminem did renegade, so the answer is probably him. unless you can name me a better guest verse

  • shawn t

    the best ever is jay z. he has more QUALITY and QUANTITY and more overal CLASSIC collabos.

    andre3000, should really have an asterik by his name. so great and exceptional but not enough work. if he did 1/3 of the work as the current rappers its over.

    ALL time best in no order:

    red and meth (the killed the 90′s)
    nas (nasty nas)
    fab
    luda (he held his own with nas,kiss,wayne ect)
    wayne (many very good; many not so good)
    biggie (rare and classic)
    cannibus (i used to get chills)
    az (do your research people)
    raekwon
    busta
    bun b (never EVER heard a bad verse)
    twista (unstoppable on guest and remixes)
    jadakiss
    eminem
    dmx

    new crop:

    kayne (killed cassidy,wayne, ect)
    juelz (best verse on carter 3)
    wale ( very excited to see he gon do)
    pusha t
    crooked i (want to see more)

  • shawn t

    sorry, i gotta add Game to the new crop of collabos. dude kills it. he has given the likes of nas, hova, wayne, kiss ect all that they could handle.

  • http://www.justice.gov.za Q

    Y? y’ll sleeping on my boy..nate dogg? Tell me any track he had been featured on that aint hot? Ask ur favourate rapper who’s their dream collabo?

  • http://foshiggadale.blogspot.com Foshiggadale

    i was torn between Luda and Busta, until I heard Luda murder Ciara’s new shit and I remembered how many times that dude has come into a pop joint and still spit a mixtape-style 16……and when did The Game give Jay-Z all he can handle, the only time they shared a track is when Envy did that wack-ass blend when the big rumor was that Hov was going to Aftermath

    foshiggadale.blogspot.com

    feel free to peep what i have posted so far, i’m on my come up and can use feedback

  • Ali

    Yeah Busta is a good pick, or Bun….alotta other rappers made cameos that were better all the time (Eminem) but they aren’t really active on the guest MC tip like Busta…..Busta & Bun can never be outshined no matter what…even by rappers way better than them….always hold it down
