Top 5 Dead Or Alive: "He's Got That Biggie Swag"

[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 Illmind scooped out his top picks, West Coast rapper Kafani names his fave five.]
T.I. I feel T.I.'s music. That's what I like listening to. Lyrically, he's got it and he goes crazy.
Lil Wayne. I've been listening to Lil Wayne forever. He's been doing this since he was 14 or 15. He's evolved and I've also evolved with my own music. I used to stay out in New Orleans and saw how that Cash Money stuff came up.
Rick Ross. I feel like he's got that swag. He's got that Biggie swag.
Too Short. I've got to represent for Oakland. I have to name him in there. He's one of the first rappers from Oakland. I grew up listening to his stuff and so I have to respect the homie right there. There's a lot of his records that I can say word-for-word.
Young Jeezy. With Young Jeezy, it's that whole hood trap sh*t. I feel all of that. It's more about me liking his music. Most of the music he puts out, I really listen to it. That's what I'm driving around with. That's why I say him.
