The former professional boxer thinks Biggie is better than Pac, and Nas better than Jay-Z.
This week, The Brew Podcast shared a list of who they believe are the 50 best rappers ever, which then incited countless debates on social media on who should and shouldn’t have been included and who should’ve been ranked higher or lower.
Then came lists from other people like Peter Rosenberg and Ebro. Now, Mike Tyson has shared his own top 50 best rappers list.
The former professional boxer took to Instagram to share the list along with the following caption: “@fredfrenchy asked me to get y’all my top 50 rappers of all time list. Here it is.”

Both Tyson and Rosenberg have Biggie in their top spot. After Biggie, Tyson then lists 2Pac, which is then followed by Rakim, Nas, and Jay-Z.
We’ll let you go through the rest of the list on your own. Tyson has already gotten some discussion in his comments about the list, with many of them saying 2Pac deserves the top spot over Biggie.
“@miketyson shoulda put PAC where he really belongs! No.1!! – definitely not a spitter like Biggie but he changed the game and became a larger than life icon. Iron Mike will know what I mean by this. Can’t hear seeing a Tyson list with anyone before Pac,” one user wrote.
“Big over pac champ?” another user wrote.
Some also noticed how Kendrick Lamar was absent from the list, while other argued that Eminem should’ve been higher on Tyson’s list.
Do you agree with Tyson’s list? Do you, like us, hope these lists stop? Let us know in the comments.
