according to google, a rapper called “Lil’ Wayne” is the best rapper alive…in fact thats the name of one of his “hit” songs.

what are the qualifications for being the “best rapper alive”?

rev run.

stop listening to horrible “hip hop”. that’s not rap. that’s a bunch of wanna-be lyricists wearing bullet proof vests writing about guns and girls on their knees. talk about a BS facade?

sorry for my opinion.

Too hard to quantify best rapper…hiphop has alot different sub-genres…but i will throw some names out there:
Common, Jay-Z, Nas, Talib Kweli, Eminiem, Andre 3000, KRS…actually this is too hard…too many to list…no way to rank them.

Also, Lil Wayne is trend…kinda like z caverichi pants or JNCO jeans.

most people rate Lil Wayne on his commercial records but he put out over 150 songs for free in the mixtape game this year. Check out beat without bass or I know the future by Lil Wayne. I would have to say that Wayne isn’t a trend and will go down as one of the best but your right about a lot of sub genres and too many to list.
