I have a serious problem with Drake’s top 5 list.

Drake’s artist, “OVO Hush” posed the question that seems to be asked at least once every year. Who are the best MCs?

While Drake is usually on someone’s top 5 or top 10 list, he chimed in with his top 5:

Biggie, Hov (Jay-Z), Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, Young Tony (OVO Hush).

Don’t get me wrong, everyone on his list are spitters! Although, I’ve never heard Young Tony. The problem I have with his list is that Eminem was left off. I’m not even from Detroit and I’ve loved Eminem since I started listening to hip-hop.

Here’s my list:

  1. Eminem
  2. 2-Pac
  3. Lil Wayne
  4. Hopsin (sleeper – don’t judge me!)
  5. This is the one I have a hard time filling. J. Cole could easily be in this spot… or Meek Mill? Biggie? Tough.

For all you Drake fans, he is releasing his 6th studio album this Summer.

What do you think about Drake (or mine)’s top 10 list?
