[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 legendary MC Kool G Rap brought out his fave five, rapper Kid Ink chopped it up with us and delivered his Top 5 picks.]
Snoop Dogg. First off, I gotta represent for the West. I smoked with Snoop Dogg just recently, I'm a heavy smoker so we already relate that way and he makes alotta music I can ride to on that level. Snoop is somebody I grew up listening to.
Ma$e. Let's say Ma$e. Ma$e birthed so many different styles, people used to say I sounded like him when I first started. I just feel like he alwayd had a dope flow. He definitely has his own sound.
Kanye West.Who can I say? I'mma say Yeezy because I f*ck with him heavy and he never fails, it's always solid, quality music.
DMX.Man DMX is a legend. It's Dark and Hell is Hot was the album I used to ride the bus to in junior high school everyday.
50 Cent. Let's see who's last on my list ... that Hall of Fame makes it tough. I gotta say 50 Cent. You can't say 50 didn't run the game for a minute. I can't even give you a year, but he definitely set some bars as far as sales, he definitely hit the streets hard with the mixtapes. You gotta respect 50 Cent.
