Billboard Ranks The Top Ten Rappers Of All Time

Eminem Jay Z
Billboard just released a feast of information for chart junkies.
The venerable music mag (and website) has dropped a large cache of all time charts, including some based on the data they’ve been collecting since 1958.
Perhaps the most prestigious is their list of Greatest All Time Billboard 200 Artists, which measures acts by how much time their albums have spent on Billboard’s charts. It’s no great surprise that the Beatles finished first, followed by the Rolling Stones. The highest charting Hip Hop act is Eminem, who finished 14th. Jay Z was next at 42nd.
Billboard also revealed their ranking of the ten best rappers of all time. This list wasn’t exclusively based on chart data, but rather it also took into account the opinion of Billboard’s staff. Here are the results.

10. Lil Wayne
9. Kendrick Lamar
8. Ghostface Killah
7. Lauryn Hill
6. Andre 3000
5. Nas
4. Rakim
3. Emimen
2. Jay Z
