Vibe Best Rapper Alive Vote

Recommended Posts

It's time to put all the chips on the table. Who has the best lyrics? The flyest style? The dopest hooks? You decide.

Last year, you told the world who The Best Rapper Alive was. Looking back, it's no surprise that Eminem won the whole shebang. Now we're thinking even bigger. Starting May 18, 2009 VIBE will open up voting for hip hop's best MC ever, including legendary voices from the Golden Age, crucial stars from the Platinum Era as well as today's Twittering titans. Until then, let the barbershop debates begin!

Man, that format sucks. If they wanna find out the 'Best Rapper Alive' they should just let people vote freely. Not pit rappers against each other in rounds. It's a set up (I mean, 2Pac vs. Piles? Meh).

This is definitely a set up. It should be a poll or something. This isnt NCAA...no brackets are needed.

Will Smith vs Hammer? Of course Will, Hammer doesn't have great lyrics or a great flow really. Great entertainer but ehh..

Yeah, it's totally setup for certain rappers to advance. Will will go against Eminem and Eminem will be voted through. I think they could have chose better songs for some of these rappers too.

Lil' Wayne will probably end up winning the whole thing since mostly 12 year olds who know nothing real hip hop read Vibe these days

Interesting bracket, the first round matchup of Talib Kweli and Common is crazy, there is no way they should face off in the first round, they are both legends. The matchups seem to be set up between rappers with similar styles and not necessarily a realistic seeding.

I saw the article on this in the new Vibe but hadn't read it yet. Weird voting set up....but lets support real Hip-Hop anyway.

If u click on FP's name close 2 the end of that list, it'll take u 2 a very basic page about him. There's a few pix on there of him performing that i've never seen before. Check it out.
