Eminem Reveals His List of Greatest Rappers of All Time

Eminem has named his favorite rappers of all time numerous times in the past but now he’s provided what looks to be quite an exhaustive list.


YouTuber No Life Shaq posted a video of himself DMing 30 rappers on Instagram where he asked them who their greatest rappers of all time were. Eminem did not respond on the platform but after several hours, he did take notice of the tweet and decided to reply with his names on Twitter.

“For me, in no particular order… Toss up between wayne, pac, royce, jay, redman, treach, g. rap, biggie & king crook….” tweeted Em. Then in a follow up tweet, he also mentioned LL Cool J, Kendrick Lamar, Joyner Lucas, J. Cole, Nas, André 3000, and Rakim.
