[WATCH] I Went on Revolt TV to Talk the Greatest Rappers of All Time!

It’s the never-ending discussion. Who are the greatest rappers of ALL time?

Most hip hop heads will talk influence, lyrics, sales, flow, success and more, to convince others why their top rappers should be at the top of the list.

I was elated to talk about my Top 3 rappers of all time on Revolt TV. DJ Damage, television host and on-air personality on Real 92.3, moderated the conversation between me and TV Executive, Pat Charles.

Watch as we discuss the difference between a rapper and a MC, and tell who we think are the greatest rappers of all time!

Props to Women in Hip Hop: Lauryn Hill

l boogieLauryn Hill is one of the greatest to ever do it. She was recently on Billboard’s the 10 Best Rappers of all time list. Of course some of us had issues with the list because there was no mention of Tupac, but I digress. Others took issue with the list because they didn’t feel Hill was classified as a MC.

I beg to differ.

If we’re calling Drake a rapper then Lauryn Hill is a rapper, too. No shade. Some people just assume she’s a R&B artist and I’m like, nah. She can write, rap, flow, and happen to sing a little bit, too. But that doesn’t take away from her skill as a hip hop artist. This week I’m giving props to L-Boogie for dropping a true gem on us in 1998, with her classic and only solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. I loved the album because she touched on the industry while focusing on themes of love and God.

Although we haven’t heard much from her since then, besides the MTV Unplugged and the Consumerism single she dropped a few years ago, her one project alone was enough to deem her a true woman in hip hop.

This is epic.
