    Maybe I'm the only who has noticed that watchmojo is biased. Always placing Biggie above Tupac even where Tupac deserves more props. Correct that please @watchmojo

    Mobb Deep shook Ones Part II best track of the entire video and possibly one of the best tracks of all time definitely one of my favorites the infamous mobb nigga we Can't Be Touched can't you see

    Nah! Doesnt agree with this list at all, this well maybe been the most planer radiotracks but radioytacks is almost always out of carachter for underground rappers i think of 2par as a great lyricist and a poet and I know how much heat you get for saying this but i was never into him as a MC and till this day i think its something of with hes flow. Bring the heat🔥🔥🔥

    Jay-Z, Ice Cube, Drake and The Game dont mean shit to me.

    Im not gonna do a list but B.I
    G was före, Wu-Tang, Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks/Vinnie Paz, Redman, The Fugees, Big Pun, Nas. Mobb Deep, M.O.P, Cypress Hill and Bone thugs n harmony.

    Thats my list on the best Rappers and Crews at the -90's, and still spinning these AF.

    Honerable mentsion: Tracy Chapman, has NOTHING to do with Hiphop or R'n'b, best sig and songwriter ever!
