Jay Z Drake

So after realizing hip hop and sports have become practically synonymous with each other, the people over at Deadspin came up with a pretty dope idea. They decided to rank today's hottest rappers on a Madden-like scale. Like the game, the rappers were rated on a scale from 0-100 in categories ranging from overall performance to longevity in the music game.

Follow these keys to determine which artist has been playing the game right:  Overall (OVR), Charisma (CHR), Stage Presence: (STP),Beat Selection (BEA), Persona (PER), Lyrics (LYR), Discography (DSC), Humor (HMR),Fashion (FSH), Versatility (VST), Creativity (CRT), Hooks (HKS), Record Sales (RCS), andLongevity (LNG).
