I do have to admit, I did this list several years ago on The Industry Cosign and it seems as if there has been no new entries or change of opinion. Now, I know there will never be a perfect list as far as this topic is concerned and everyone’s criteria is definitely different and it’s understandable. I’ve compiled this list based on nothing scientific and based simply on MY opinion, as I know you have yours as well. But, isn’t that what makes ‘top lists’ enjoyable/debatable?
Now, I’m a little older so you’ll understand my thinking based on perhaps longevity in the rap game/acting world, exposure in either or and maybe, acting skills or level of work obtained because of abilities to play a role. NOT necessarily based on lyrical prowess or even record sales, but, maybe a little of each, but, as I just stated, more so just my opinion!
I was gonna list in order, but, even I am debating myself based on the factors (My opinion, once again!) of my choices. Although I do have an opinion on who is THE best rapper turned actor, but, because I know the order changes in my mind as I type, I will just list the top 10 (The last 2 listed were actually actors before they started rapping) that come to mind as I write this. OK, I’ll make it easy on myself, I’ll list them in alphabetical order…..
Let the debate begin!!!
