    Just look at these classics, he is the best and he will remain as the best for a very damn long time.




    DMX's favourite rapper


    He is a real sentence engineer

    From that era... Big Daddy Kane, IMO.

    All time? I'd throw my hat in the Black Thought ring.

    Can't front on that at all, if I had to choose one it would be Rakim

    Dude had it all, the voice, the flow, the lyrics, positivity, street knowledge

    I think Black Thought may be better, and there are other emcees I like more, but Rakim Allah is the greatest for me

    He's definitely up there. I'm impressed that of the other suggestions, so far, no Sherbros have thrown any shit MCs names in

    I'm kind of impressed and proud of these guys, little bit teary eyed if I'm honest

    Where do you stand with UK emcees, who's cream of the crop for you?

    Rakim is great, but Nas is the greatest ever.

    In terms of hip hop I'd have to say

    Chester
    Ty
    Jehst
    Roots Manuva
    Mystro
    Skinny Man
    Kyza


    Groups
    Mud Fam
    London Zoo
    Double D Dagger
    The IRS

    I think some Grime MCs and groups are good though and I'd have a lot of them on my list

    I grew up with Busta Rhymes and hung around Tribe, De La, LONS.....Thue will all tell you Rakim is the best now and then. Best flow, tone, composition.....the best for sure
