Tupac Shakur, hands down. No one even compares. It's impossible to argue that although many people try. All the current rap artists out there pretty much suck, and as cliche as it is I will say that Eminem is a phenomenal LYRICIST. Ying Yang Twins, Dem Franchise Boyz, god they are absolutely horrible. Eminem, Tech N9ne, Twista, Atmosphere are the only real good rap artists out there today and they don't come even remotely close to Tupac's rapping ability.

LMFAO 'Eminem, Tech N9ne, Twista, Atmosphere are the only real good rap artists out there today'

Do you listen to hip hop/rap. Immortal Technique, Murs, Jedi Mind Tricks, Copywrite, Akir, Diabolic, Esham, X Raided, Big L, Big Pun, Notorious Big, Common, Nas, Jay Z, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5'9 and Rakim are all damn good rappers and most are still rapping today. My personal opinion is that Immortal Technique is the best rapper ever, 'Dance With The Devil', 'You Never Know', 'Industrial Revolution' and 'Freedom of Speach' are just a few Tech songs to name and they are all better than any Tupac song. Infact 'Dance With The Devil' alone is better than anything Pac did in his entire career. Having said that Pac is probably better than the rest I named, although Biggie comes close.
