Now this is just my opinion, I know most people have strong opinions, or maybe you are a fan of someone else.

Eminem

The best rapper alive! One of the best rappers of all time and my all time favorite.
Sure you know who Eminem is, he is one of the most popular faces in the world right now, he is the most famous rapper and musician alive. He has some controversial music, but when you hear enough rap, you do realize its true with any rapper, no one is clean, I don't know why people hate him. Rap music is supposed to be like that.
He is one of the truly talanted people that don't get famous by chance and continue to be liked by a lot of people.

Kanye West

A genius, his raps are carefully written masterpieces, he takes a lot of time to develop them, improve them and make all of them sound so good.
Most of his songs are worth listening, there are almost no songs that you don't like by Kanye.
Hearing a few of his songs, you do eventually like him. His songs are all written to be perfect, I mean there are no extra or forcefully added songs in any of his albums, even in mixtapes by kanye west, many new songs that are not in albums are included, most of them are actually great and I believe he should hav even included some of them in his albums.

Nas

Nas has not been active now for long, but he is one of the of the best, he is not among the new rappers, his first few albums had some of the greatest rap songs ever.
He is living and he even appeared in a few songs, he even had an album out a few years back. The time for which he is remembered is however long gone, but very good at the time and was one of the most inspiring people to many new rappers, you will hear many artists, saying how they remember people like Nas.

Immortal Technique

Not a mainstream rapper, but probably the most famous "underground" rapper. There are no huge advertisements or gold albums, but he is very well known.
Many songs such as the Dancing with the Devil, Leaving the past, Obnoxious, You Never Know are nothing like you will ever hear from anyone else.

I've gotta give you props tbh. Most of the people doesn't even have that intripidity to call out Eminem as the best alive cuz other Hip Hop nerds might label him as a blind fanboy, where as in reality, Eminem is certainly one of the best alive. Nas and IT are not even putting out some stuff lately and Kanye's last album was mediocre imo. If I had to make a 4 Rappers list, I would count in Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Jay Electronica, Action Bronson.

They are not, but they still are there and yes there are many, but those rappers would not be in my list, if I had to add to it, Lil wayne, Snop Dogg, Flo Rida, Blu, Jay Z, Electronica, Dre
But yes, I wrote people who like rap have very strong opinions, so do you have

I would suggest you to check out, Blu's Good to be Home, released in May in this very year. I am sure he will make the cut in your list.

Thanks, sure I will, you should make a list too, the reason I wrote this is I saw your article somewhere, I always thought I would write something like this but I wrote it when I saw your article, also when I thought about writing it was a very long list but I was actually in a hurry to publish it so I left.
