The Best Rapper Alive Since 1979

The Best Rapper Alive? Is there such a thing?

Everyone claims to be "best rapper" or "my favorite rapper is" ... but is there really ONE, just ONE. The GOAT (Greatest of All Time) as we like to refer to. 

Well, Complex Magazine thinks so. Rookies and new jacks need not apply—this debate is strictly for the catalog artists, people who have shifted the culture in previously unmovable ways, artists whose music has permeated and resonated over an extended period of time. It’s rap’s imaginary Hall of Fame - and according to Complex, it starts with the year 1979.

1979: GRANDMASTER CAZ

1980: KURTIS BLOW

1981: KOOL MOE DEE

1982: MELLE MEL
