Best Rapper 1996 - 2000

Unread post by alexalonso » November 12th, 2009, 1:59 am

I want to know who you think was the best rapper during this era. When I sat best rapper I dont mean best rap song, but the actual best rapper. I also dont mean the most records sold, just the best rapper.

- In 1996 Tupac was by far the best on the scene
- Big Pun - Capital Punishment by far the best album of the year in 1998/99
- Biggie


dam they are all dead.

now illmatic is was around 94 till 95.... but still nas' it was written was a classic.

IT was more 2pac and biggie , '96 and '97 ( 2pac all the way till 00'')
best lyrically was Big L, and Nas

honorable mention : DMX, METHODMAN,MOBB DEEP, Bone Thugs N Harmony .( i jst had a brain freeze cant think no more )

in my opinion**

pac was still the best from 96 to the early 2000's, because his Resurrection release smoked anybody rappin at that time.
