Well played Mackk, well played indeed....
Anyway, in no particular order

Biggie
Tupac
Nas
Rakim
Canibus
The Last Emperor
Guru
Scarface
Eminem [who I really don't like but he is talented as all hell]
Big L
Sage Francis

I'm really gonna have to think about this 'cause I know I'll revise it. These are just who popped in my head immediately. I'm basing this off of lyrical ability, lyrical content, flow, delivery and overall style.

I put a couple of people [like Em] up there for their ability, not based on how much I like 'em. But, he's no longer on the list. This will probably get changed again, but as of now-

Nas
Canibus
Biggie
Tupac
The Last Emperor
Mos Def
Devin the Dude
Rakim
Eyedea
Sage Francis
Big L

I know that's eleven, but I felt like turning it up to eleven. So Yeah.
