Note: Some artists are listed more than once becasue they fall into more than one category, but this does not imply that I think they're any better or or worse than any other artist. Also, no doubt many, many talented and great artists and groups are not listed, mainly because I don't know about all the old school rappers out there, and because of limitations on space. Lastly, these are my personal favorites, so my list may differ from your top favs. Enjoy!
