Barring a few obvious selections (Outkast, Eminem, any extension of the Wu-Tang Clan), here are 25 rappers who actually changed the game, whether it be from raw skill, business savvy or a bit of both.

We never dissed Iggy but she does have a little ways to go before her legacy can be used as trump card. That’s in any circumstance. Peace to Lizzuendo for the inspiration. Follow us on Twitter and all forms social media as well. We are here for you.
