Top 5 Dead Or Alive: "His Flow Is Ridiculous. It's Almost Like He Didn't Take A Breath"

[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 Mike Schreiber shot out his picks earlier this week, poet/rapper Mums spits out his fave five.]
Lauryn Hill. Lauryn Hill can get into any cypher with any man or any emcee and her skills are phenomenal.
Big L. Big L's flow is ridiculous. It's almost like he didn't take a breath when he rapped.
Black Thought. I'm putting him in the same realm as Big L. Black Thought is nice, son! He's nice. He's one of the baddest emcees of all time. His breath control is crazy. It's almost like he doesn't smoke blunts but I know different.
Method Man. I have to give mad props and respect to Method Man. Method Man is a flow demon. His flow is just ridiculous. It's almost like he was born with a flow like a saxophone. That flow is just so steady.
Sha Rock. I definitely have to give it up to Sha Rock who was down with the Funky Four Plus One More. She was the one more. Sha Rock was nice. Not too many people know.
