Most recently Billboard Magazine released their top 50 MCs of all time list and it has a few people scratching their heads, including me! One MC I thought should have definitely made the list was Ja Rule. He even made it known on Twitter:
There ain’t 50 rappers dead, alive or waiting to be born better than me… #ICONN #Vibes @billboard congrats to everyone on the list well deserved but check my resume… #ICONN #Vibes

In my opinion, Ja Rule had a string of hits for 4-5 years in the late 90s and early 2000s that should have made him at least in the top 50, right? Here’s the list: Personally, I’m taking at least 8 of these MCs off the list such as E-40, Mos Def, Big Pun, Rick Ross, and Bun B, and that’s where I would insert Ja Rule. I would take those artists off my top 50 list, but insert them right back into a top 100 list. I even went to Facebook to talk about this list and check out the comments: By the way, Billboard ranked the number one artist Jay-Z What do you think??
