    1st bitches.. lil boosie is wack!

    • Jay Jizzle

      Lupe Fiasco and Joell Ortiz!
      and maybe MAYBE Papoose but he aint got nothing out.
      The rest are just flames about to drown in the flood of new artist. They all say that they bad and they the hardest but the game aint where there heart is. there all about stackn cash and smackn ass. music today needs more soul & substance!

    • sexiparis

  • 318DBoi

    Say What U Want Bout Boosie Bad Azz a.k.a. Hollywood Hatchet but u goin hear him everytime he drop

  • Q! Tha Great!

    this shouldn’t have been a top ten just a top five: Crooked I, Lupe Fiasco, Papoose, Joel Ortiz & Saigon. and that’s no disrespect to the other five MC’s, I just think these five have the best potential to do something special in hip hop. and why wasn’t a dude like Bishop Lamont mentioned?

  • Renzarelli

    Crooked I is the best on that cover!!! And Bishop Lamont should have been on there t0o. I foresee a future cover with both of them on there under the caption “Next West Thang”!!!

  • jennifer

    what up i want to have a shout out to pretty ricky. i love yall guys. keep yall head up and keep doing yall. love yall

  • NIXON

    Sad times in the world of hip-hop when none of these top ten mcs will even be considered or thought of in 2010. FUCK. thats less than 3 yrs away…do you honestly think that in a ‘top ten list’ of best rappers Dead or Alive, conducted 10 yrs from today, that any of these 10 artists will even be considered?? I mean Crooked’s the best of these half-weights, but wasn’t he (and Suge) gonna bring back the West a few yrs back under….uumm…Death Row…he didn’t blow than…..

    so maybe it’s actually Papoose that is our best hope for that new Illmatic we all crave so deeply like Domino’s, but please PAP drop that fuckin’ American Dream album before we all go dyslexic or something…..FUCK..

  • http://www.google.com 4evamc
