Top 5 Dead Or Alive: "He Has To Be Way More Of A Superstar Than What He Is Right Now"

[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name their Top 5 rappers of all-time. To make things tricky, we've created a "Hall of Fame" of emcees (see right) who are universally respected and therefore may not be mentioned. After Ras Kass named his top spitters, New Boyz's Legacy unvelis his favorite five emcees.]
Kanye West. Definitely. That's easy. I don't even have to say why.
Lupe Fiasco. I know he's really not underrated and everyone respects him, but I feel like Lupe has to be way more of a superstar than what he is right now. I feel like he's one of the dopest emcees in the game. He takes it to a whole 'nother level.
Kendrick Lamar. I think Kendrick Lamar should be up there in my Top 5 because he's hard.
Kurupt. Honestly, he's one of my favorite rappers. I've just been a fan of Kurupt since I was a kid. My dad would always used to play his music. I'd listen to all of his albums and everything.
DMX. He's another one of my favorite rappers. I'm not saying he's in my Top 5 of all time, but in this list, he's in my Top 5. I have to include him.
