This year, Hip hop will be 50, and in celebrating this great milesone, Billboard Vibe and has named Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj as the greatest male and female rapper of all time
Over the past month, the magazine has been rolling out its list of the Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All Time
before revealing the final top 10.
The editorial staff determined the rankings based on the following criteria: body of work/achievements
(charted singles/albums, gold/platinum certifications), cultural impact/influence (how the artists work fostered the genres evolution),
longevity (years at the mic), lyrics (storytelling skills), and flow (vocal prowess).

While the list includes female MCs like Lil Kim (No. 31), Lauryn Hill (No. 30),
and Missy Elliott (No. 19), Nicki Minaj is the only woman in the top 10.
She’s undeniably blazed the trail for the next generation of female MCs,
while at the same time, building a legacy whose impact is hardly limited to the hip-hop world, writes Billboard.
With a career that spans three decades, Jay-Z was named the greatest rapper of all time. He was ranked so for his longevity, the breadth of his accomplishments, and what he’s meant to hip-hop.
Meanwhile at the last 65th grammy which held last weekend saw the rapper’s wife break his own record
to become the most awarded artist in the recording academy
Well congratulations are in order for Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj
