No One Cares About Your Top 50 Rappers List (But BTW, Here’s Mine)

Earlier this week, an AWFUL Top 50 rappers list was released that had Joe Budden ranked No. 3 which is a pretty smart way to get your list passed around as long as you’re okay with 100% of people calling you an idiot.

That led to everyone and their mothers posting their own Top 50 lists that literally no one asked for.

Let’s make one thing clear: no one cares who you think is a Top 50 rapper. Top 50 lists, in general, are garbage because only the Top 10 actually matter and there’s no real argument between No. 44 and No. 45. Outside of the Top 20, it’s essentially just a list of really good rappers with no real distinctions between No. 29 and No. 39 outside of who you personally enjoyed when you were growing up.

THAT BEING SAID, I’d be remiss if I didn’t drop my own Top 50 that no one cares about. Quick heads up: this list will most likely just be 50 rappers from New York because I am biased and everything DJ Premier touched turned to gold.

Created Deadseriousness after being fired from every job I've ever had. One faithful night I drew the conclusion that if I was going to be unemployed, I might as well write articles that will guarantee I am un-hireable going forward. This website is the equivalent to a face tattoo.

E-mail to talk directly about all Deadseriousness related stuff or if you just want to talk about like, the Yankees or Marvel comics or whatever.
