Default Top 3 hiphop MC's of all time

In your opinion, who are the three greatest hiphop artists/groups of all time? Feel free to explain any thoughts, feelings, or views you have on the topic.

My top three are as follows:

1. Eminem/Marshall Mathers/Slim Shady
2. Tupac Shakur/2 Pac
3. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

Rakim would have to be on the list.

I had a few to pick from for third place. But when I thought about it, Bone has put out enough hitters and has been doing it long enough to be considered one of the best. They brought a new style of rappin to the game. A flow that was super smooth, beyond quick, and stright raw. As a whole group, they spit lyrics that put songs like Creepin on a Come Up, First of Tha Month, Mo Murder, and Tha Crossroads (remix) in the hiphop hall of fame. Other third place choices I have are, The Wu-Tang Clan, Nelly, Snoop Dog, Ice Cube, Ludacris, and i'm sure I forgot a bunch more. Those are off the top of my head. But I wanna make it clear that I didn't forget Jay-Z. I left him out. Cause I just don't consider him to be nearly as sick as everyone thinks he is.

Bone is some good stuff.
So many good ones..But I'd have to say Dr.Dre and Snoop are all-time classics,It doesn't get much better,IMHO.

The Roots? Black Thought is repetitive and Malik B needs to do something.

Replace it with Lyrics Born and you've got a pretty solid list. Being from minnie, I'm also partial to slug.

(musically the root are top notch, but their lyrical content is not up to top billing)
