sorry, lol.  The reason is because when I listen to their  music it just gets me pumped up.  They are both very creative in my mind. E40's cool too.

All time:
2Pac - Deep, emotional and introspective lyrics. The flow and voice are ill.

Ice Cube - Politcal lyrics mixed with gangsta style. Flow and voice are dope.

Now:
Nas - Lyrically [meaning balancing skills with content, not just spittin' out pointless jibberish] and conceptually the best in the game at the moment IMO.

Snoop Dogg - Snoop in his early years would be in my top favorites of all time. Right now Snoop is still one of my favorites though. He can still make good music.

Scarface - One of the last older M.C.'s that are still puttin' out great albums. Face's subject matter has matured and he improved lyrically.

DMX - In '98 he was my favorite rapper. He has fallen off but still can make a banger if he wants. Lyrically he was never one of the elite but his voice, flow and charisma are what make me enjoy his music.

Eminem - The best in the game only second to Nas. He has the best multis since Pun isn't here and his subject matter is steadily improving.

2Pac - he was the most complete MC ever. Had the ability to flip any type of track and make it dope, and his message will carry on forever. The man was way ahead of his time. There will never be another 2Pac.

Other artists I like include;

Nas (i'd say he's my second all time fav.)
Ras Kass
Cube
Talib Kweli
Snoop
Common
The Roots
Masta Ace
'Face
Warren G
Outkast
Rakim

There's so many, I couldn't possibly list them all but these are just some of the artists that I own all albums from.

Favourite artists lists keep changing but Rakim has been parked there since I got into him in '97.  Then another at the top, The Last Emperor has been there since 2000, can't get enough of him.  I'm going to review his unreleased album in the album review section soon.

If I had to give 5 favorites right now, the others would have to be: Nas, Devin & Em.

All time:
Snoop Doggy Dogg- When he first came out, I could'nt believe how dope he was.  I used to have this chanel called the Box, and they would allways play 187 on a cop, and I loved it, then nuttin but a g thang, and just every song he did was tight as fuck.  He's not what he used be by any standards but I still love some of his music.  I met him during the filming of Gin & Guice and we kicked for a while.  He was the biggest rap star at the time and he acted like he was just like me.  He never talked down to me or acted like "Yeah Im a rapper and your just a school kid"  He even gave me some of the crews food.  Just a real cool muthafucka

honarable mention:
Nas- eventhough everytime I look he's contricting himself, lyrically he's the best.  Every time I write rhymes I listen to Nas first, he  sets the standard for me.

Biggie-style and voice was dope together blended words that don't mix perfectly.

2pac- I like the pac before Death Row, I think his concepts were better and lyrics were deeper.  His stuff was so real that I really believed it.  Most rappers I just listen to it for fun but pac was serious.
