Kendrick
Drake (He will be, admit it)
Lupe Fiasco
Blu (Will be an underground legend for sure)
J. Cole
Kid Cudi
Pusha T (Because of Clipse)

I would say Wale but he’s gotta stop with this MMG bullcrap he’s been spitting & get back to being a wizard.

Joey Bada$$

IMO I’d say Eminem and Kanye (obviously), Kendrick I’m sure will be and probably Lupe, Lil Wayne (like it or not, he will be), ectt and probably a few underground legends. I don’t think people like 50, T.I., Game, Drake, ect will be forgotten either due to how big they were/are in music. I could name some other good rappers like J. Cole, but I don’t think they are unique enough to be real legends.

It’s no surprise that Kendrick will be a legend. Love him or hate him you can’t deny it.

Eminem is already a legend.
Ye is already a legend.
K.R.I.T will definitely be one, dude is passed talent.
Lupe is a no brainer, name somebody else who can write what he can. Exactly.
Drake. Even if you don’t like him, the guy does have a good flow when he wants to.
Ab-Soul…duh.

The ones you want. It’s an opinion after all. There are no rap legends in my opinion.

Eminem is not a 2000s rapper, he released Infinite in 1996.

Honestly, I think Joey Bada$$ has to step up if he wants to be considered a legend.
I feel that ‘1999’ was way better than ‘Summer Knights.’ I’m anxious to hear his new album to see what he’s really capable of.
