    @Geem,
    eminem deserves this coronation.glad to see overhyped emcees like nas,rakim and krs one.were never mentioned .this artists have released only two nice (not classic)albums at most yet they are heralded as the all time greats.infact their music is not transcendatal as em’s .eminem’s music transcends race,location and age the true essence of greatness.thumbs up

    WACK!!!!! this is stupid in general thats why they have “Rappers” like diddy on this list contending for king of hip-hop. this is not a king of hip-hop list otherwise artists like nas, tech n9ne, common, pac, and biggie would be on this list… this is a “King of Mainstream Hip-Hop” list

    If people would pay attention and read the facts, the way that this was calculated is right in front of your face. Don’t hate on the facts! Em clearly deserves this title. No one is comparing him to Pac and Biggie. Stop hating!

    @aaron, Em is nothing. Rolling stone is labeling him this NOT NO ONE ELSE and certain NOT the people who truly Live HIP HOp. LIke I said, Rolling stone did not want MJ to be labeled King of POP and clearly MJ deserved that title hands down. Rolling stone is a JOKE. Rolling stone does NOT speak for HIP HOP.

    TNT Reply:

    @aaron, Em hasn’t been hot for the last decade. He was hot early 2000 came back with Relapse after a hiatus and the fans ate it up b/c it’s him but that was recycled early 2000 disses and nonsense and even he called it “Ehhh”. Before that was Encore and half the songs are so damn childish. Recovery is dope and I am a fan but I hate when people make it seem like he’s been consistently hot since he first came on the scene. He has an amazing delivery and his flow is dope. His content however is often ridiculous and I wonder if he was ugly or more threatening in appearance if we would give him a pass on that ridiculous content. But Recovery like I said is much more refreshing to hear from someone that is mid to late thirties. He’s grown with older children no need to rap about pleasuring himself to Hannah Montana shows. No Beef though, I don’t do internet fights.

    THIS… IS.. GONNA.. START.. SOME.. SHIT.. THAT.. I.. WANT.. NO..PART.. OF….. ROLLING STONE GIVES ME A HEADACHE. THE FANS DETERMINE WHO THE “KING” IS. WHY ARE THEY LOOKING SO DEEPLY INTO THIS. IT’S SO SIMPLE. TO FANS IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AWARDS AND INTERNET AND ALL THAT.(WELL MAYBE BUT NOT REALLY REALLY) THAT’S THE “OTHER PEOPLES” JOBS. IF I SAID MY FAVE RAPPER WOULD YOU GUYS GET MAD? I’M NOT SAYING HE IS THE KING BUT HE IS THE REASON I DISCOVERED RAP. AND I’M NOT A EMINEM HATER. I CUM EVERY TIME I SEE THAT MANS FACE. BUT HE HAS THE MOST YOUTUBE VIEWS BECAUSE OF HIS CRAZY VIDEOS. THERE AND 2 OR 3 DIFFERENT GENERATIONS OF HIP-HIP. BUT YOU A TRUE FAN IF YOU LOOK UP OLD AND NEW AND THEN SAY YOUR OPINION.

    Em has the title for now but Drake is coming to take it real soon. Drake was in the top five of majority of those charts and he’s barely dropping his official sophomore album. Jay Z has problem dropped the most albums, giving him the most hits for award spots. Within a few years I can promise Drake is be on top. There’s something special about that guy and as a fan I found it right away.

    @Ericatomars23, i can agree with that BUT WHO DO YOU GUYS THINK IS THE ‘KING OF HIP-HOP LYRICALLY’

    [Reply]

    LMH Reply:

    @EricTheKidd,
    From this list, I truly believe Jay and Em are the best lyricist. And I say that based on their entire body of work. They have both been rapping for a couple decades, covering many topics (effectively).

    With that being said, Drake hasn’t even reached his peek and he is already a better lyricist than most of his hip hop counterparts. He is not just a “punch-line” rapper, he’s a true storyteller. We WILL be using his lyrics as a benchmark for other rappers.

    1) This list is for the CURRENT HipHop guys, they can’t go over the entire history of rap and compare everyone.

    2) Maybe if Pac was still alive he would have achieved what Em has so far or probably more but he died before getting the chance of giving the world what Eminem has given throughout the past years.

    3) You say Lil Wayne is the king, this proves that you are dumb as fuck because Lil Wayne is a joke in front of Eminem’s lyrics. They are profound, meaningful, strong vocabulary and not about money or sex.

    4) Keep in mind that Drake and Lil Wayne have writers right most of their songs where as Em IS A WRITER.

    5) Go over the freestyle battles that each of there rappers have gone through and u’ll understand that Eminem is the BEST MC.

    6) Finally, I would like to add that Eminem puts so much energy and passion while rapping that no one else can do. He has proven to be funny, mature, a good father despite all the struggle he went through. He achieved his dream on his own and he was persistent on reaching the top. He has given the world all type of rap/hiphop songs.

    I’m cool with. Eminem as the Hip Hop King. His got the best lyrics, some of the best flows, isn’t always stuck on hip hops favorite topics, money, weed, & pussy, original as everything he did or does isn’t like the average artist.

    I love Em’s music & his radio channel on Sirius XM Radio, Shade 45.

    Anyone hating on Em shoud take another look at the listed criteria. Based on that he is the King of Hip Hop, along with his lyrical skill and storytelling. If you look at it from a long term point of view Em and Jay rank the same. But shout out to Drizzy.
    Eminem has 7 albums
    Lil Wayne has 8 albums
    Kanye West 5 albums
    Jay Z has 11 albums
    Drake ranks 3rd with just 1 album…..OVOXO!!!!!

    I definitely agree with the outcome of this list..Out of all the rappers named, Em deserves to be on top. He’s the best lyricist, has an amazing flow and can rap about pretty much anything. Thing is they only looked at ‘today’s ‘ hiphop..which is why lots of the big names aren’t mentioned. I guess some people overlooked this fact. But all in all it’s just a list (not a great one)..don’t think Em will pay much attention to it?

    they should’ve not counted B.E.T cause they’ve not nominated Em even one time during his whole career (because its for african american and sh!t)
    and no people’s choice were counted?
    they’ve got hot rap and hot r &b but no Hot 100 ?? hot 100 is the most important music chart ! and if they had counted it im sure em would be on top because of (LTWYL 8 week Not afraid 1 week on number 1)
    and whats the definition of Headlining gross ?? em was the biggest headliner of at least 4 or 5 festival during 2010 and 11 , bonnaroo , lollapalooza , V festival …. and he is the only one with 0 headlining gross?? maybe i dont know what it means! probably because im not even English and im sorry for broken English!
