Clearly it's Rakim - and on this there can be no damned debate. He was LITERALLY 20 years ahead of his time.

Nas and Eminem exist as they are because of his influence.

It's not hard at all actually if you know your hip hop history.

Rakim is the best ever, hands down. Simply because when rating MC's you have to rate them against their era, it's almost like boxing in that regard. Rakim was two decades ahead of anything anyone was doing at the time and he is still better than most MC's even of today. I mean guys like Drake, Lil Wayne and anyone on 106 and Park sound like they are 5 years old lyrically compared to Rakim.

Second out of that group is KRS-1. He was incredible lyrically but his style wasn't about violence, drugs or women and yet he was one of the most respected MC's of all time because of his intellect on the mic.

Third out of that group is tough because historically I would put Nas over Eminem but I can't deny the impact Eminem has had on Hip Hop. Lyrically he is a beast and him and Dre made a huge change to hip hop in the modern era.

Nas was lyrically ahead of his time as well and IMO, Illmatic is a top 3 album of ALL TIME. That is as close as you get to the perfect hip hop record.

Lastly is Scarface, while I like him a lot and he was probably the most influential MC to come out of Houston, lyrically he just doesn't match up to any of the other one's you mentioned.

It's between Rakim and Nas. But if I had to choose between the two I would go with Nas just because of personal preference.
