[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 Alan Ket named his top picks, R&B singer Aaradhna whips out her fave five.]
OutKast. They are unique. That’s why I have to put them on my list.
Lauryn Hill. She knows what she’s talking about when it comes to music. She’s on my list.
Kendrick Lamar. His lyrics are very interesting. I can kind of connect to some of the stuff he talks about in his music. He’s bringing something new.
Talib Kweli. He’s great. He’s really conscious about what he raps about. I just love his Beautiful Struggle album. That’s one of my favorite albums.
Snoop Dogg. I have him on there for the longevity. He’s lasted for ages and ages. He can do whatever he wants whether it’s a reggae album or changing his name. He can do it all. He’s a great rapper.
