NotJustOk's list of Top 10 Most Gifted Rappers - who agrees with it?

Music website NotJustOk yesterday released a list of their Top 10 Most Gifted Rappers in Nigeria and placed Olamide as the second best rapper in Nigeria after Modenine. See the list below...

1. Modenine
2. Olamide
3. Phyno
4. M.I
5. Sinzu (Sauce Kid)
6. ShowDemCamp (SDC)
7. Ice Prince
8. Vector
9. Naeto C
10. Reminisce

Personal opinion and with all due respect to other rappers in Nigeria, but I think M.I is in a class of his own. I think he's not just the best rapper in Nigeria, he's the best rapper in Africa. Like, he's not even on anyone's level. He shouldn't even be on this list. We should be comparing M.I to Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and the likes and not Olamide or Phyno. That's my personal opinion. What do you think of the list? Who agrees with it? Some Nigerian rappers don't. See their tweets after the cut.

To some extent,but I quite disagree with the order.
First saucekid is not supposed to be there,Yungsix should av been a better option.
And Iceprince at N0 7 is not fair enough.
and finally Jesse jagz in place of SDC.

~BONARIO~says so via NOKIA3310

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

M.I is one of the top 7 rappers in the world!! In Nigeria and Africa there is no other better than him, his eloquence, his diction, his skill, his creativity with words, his dexterity with his flows and tunes.
After him then the likes of Olamide, Ice Prince, Vector, Mode9 can follow.

Linda I agree with you SIMPLE!!!!!!

Linda, e be like you get personal something with M.I. Told u before. M.I isn't a rapper. He's a rhymer. He raps for cash and most of his songs are for iTunes. By the way, where the hell is Terry da rapman on the list??? It's not just ok without him.

**Twizzy**

oyekunle.b said...

M.I is telented no dout, but comprering him to kenye.W... linda I think ºU̶̲̥̅̊º are wrong. Olamide is telented but not as gifted as M.I. Mr. Chairman is the best rapper in africa. And what the hell is MOde-9 doing on dat list, is he still an ARTIST?????????

It depends! You are allowed to make any1 ur best rapper! Like for me its majek fashek! Love ur raps man. Lolz

This is Objective enough. . . . I strongly agree with this List! You know nothing about Rap Music Linda! Comparing MI to Kanye is like derating him! Cos Kanye isn't hot enough! Ok? #I'd not have argued with you if we're talking about Modelling here ;) cos that's your calling! But Rapping, mba!

Cweamy said...

That's a wack list joor, what's Olamide rapping that he's better than M.I and Sinzu doesn't know how to rap joor. Vector is a better rapper than Olamide, sinzu and ice prince self. I agree with @GODWON if you've listened to Bad guy remix by L.O.S you will agree with me that Banky is a better rapper that sinzu and some names there. Make notjustok carry their yeye list go throway joor. Jesse Jagz that flows real tight aint even in the stupid list self, nonsense

M.I...................African rapper number one! .....No lie mehn!!!!! ....modenine is cool......he should come in @ second place.....As for the retarded judges who put olamide at 2nd place...they all must be reasoning through their Anus'es not brains...........Please and please and please....English is the world accepted language by which the dopeness of any rap can be judged. not yoruba, not ibo! ....Olamide can't even flow just one verse in good English..he mixes it with yoruba..thats diluted rap..................putting olamide ahead of MI is like saying Pitbull(that Spanish rapper) is better than jay Z....wtf?????..... MI and modenine are on a class of thier own........ice prince,vector, and Naeto C follow.....at the bottom you can now have any Vernacular rapper..........Ignorant niggaz.......even jesse jagz sef flow pass olamide 100 times. .....

Linda,you really should stick to blogging and stop meddling into matters that you know absolutely nothing about.
Why say a thing as that?how can M.I possibly be compared to Kanye and Kendrick?do you even know what you're saying,eh?
Modenine has no business being on that list,he's not even a rapper to begin with,he's a LYRICIST!do you even know what that means?
Besides Modenine and M.I(who by the way,has become very boring lyrically)every other person listed there is just a rapper so they can have it but please take out MODENINE from that list,he's way better than all those cats,even your darling M.I.
Show Dem Camp are actually very tight rappers,I must say!
MODENINE IS A MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN M.I and that's a FACT!

oya Linda release your own list na...:) MI has huge accomplishments but placing him top of the list will go further to show how bad Nigerian hip Hop has been. MI is currently not hiphop.. Kanye west.? Linda looooool plz shut it.

Charlie Chaplin said...

Now back to the topic, I really don't think that list went through the proper channel before it was published. Before such list are made public it must go through screening by recognized hip hop heads,record label bosses,Dj,Veejay,music producers, rap critics and public voting etc.. don't think any of those criteria' were followed for that alone i declare the list INVALID.

Thirdly if you wanna make such list then you should have proper knowledge of Rap and it's composition. To make a list of this nature you have put into consideration Pedigree, style of flow, Rhyming ability, Punch lines, Poetic ability etc.. I think Terry tha Rapman, Jesse Jagz,Ruggedman,Pheroshuwz,Eldee YES i said Eldee the Don he raps and he's a pioneer so he deserves a spot on the list. Ice prince rhymes like he still in High school good guy though.But i'd rather listen to Freestyle,iLLBliss, or 2shotz. Content matters a lot if u wanna be rated among the best.

In no particular order here's my list of best/most gifted rappers in Nigeria (IMO)

1. Modenine
2. MI
3. Terry Tha Rapman / Sauce Kid/Jesse Jagz
4. Vector/Naeto C/Ruggedman/Ikechukwu/Eldee
5. Ice prince/Olamide/Reminisce

the others can find their spot somewhere on the bottom half of the list.No hard feelings.

Shoutout 2 phynofino !!! , 2 me he shld be no 1 on d@ list , his is raw & reps the streets of 042

WTF!!! MAny people on here are just supposed to be listening and judging akpala and blues..Dont judge when it comes to Rap. MI is good but that LINDAs hype is too much, I agree with Jesse Jags to some point. Also, i think raps should also be analyzed with more of the English flow. Im a dope yoruba rapper but still wont accept Olamide. Thats entertainment rap, But from my analysis.
ModeNine first,
MI.
others follow...
But wheres PHENOM?

The list is one point. For those who listen to and understand rap, Modenine is very rich with his content, style, technique and all. He is King simple. Pls, MI is commercial and cannot bust a rhyme if given a mic suddenly. I have personally witnessed this. Ice Prince is a really shitty rapper. He just repeats stuff. There is a difference between packaging and taste. Modenine is taste. The LIST IS RIGHT.

Who is modenine ?? I think reminisce should be number 3 in my opinion . Also Linda MI is not even that good he is over hyped sarkodie is way better than him in my own opinion , like how dare compare MI to the likes of kendrick lamar , kanye west ? Abo sun Ni ? Are u drunk ? Also those other irrelevant rappers commenting should just shutup except for Jesse jagz I think he is pretty good especially his new album its pretty dope .

Exactly what I was thinking , phenom is beyond dope . I think phyno should definitely be on the list but maybe not that high up

How many of these rappers can cypher for 10 min witout reaptin old lines.Mode 9 n MI rocks.

@mich,God bless u. Linda comparing m.I to Kanye and Kendrick is just stupid. SDC are actually very good,y'all should check em out,then Modenine is no doubt the greatest in 9ja.

To alot of nigerians, Mode9 would come first and that's also bcos not all nigerians listen to or even know what rap really is about but go outside the naija shores, and you would only have to agree to this fact that M.I is number one in Africa. To me i would put Olamide in second place then maybe Sauce Kid..

Linda, STFU!!! Do you even know what defines rap? Do u know what they call bars? Do you even know what it takes to make the content of the art of rap??? Take several seats abeg.. M.I. is WACK!!! All he has is the "package" of a rapper.. M.I cannot and I boldly repeat, CANNOT stand a battle with many rap cats in Nigeria! So does Ice. And you're calling rap greats and you dare mention Kendrick Lamar??? WTF? How many albums does he have to his belt? GKMC? So because he caused a controversy means he's that good huh? What happened to the likes of Eminem, Jay Z, Diddy, Melle Mel..?? It's obvious you know next to nothing about rap and it pains me to see that people would sadly be convinced by your 'personal opinion'..
Get ur rap game tight Linda!


And yes, if there's ANY rapper worth to be on that list, it's Terry Tha Rapman.. Sinzu, Reminisce, Naeto C, SDC and Phyno are all worthy mentions, not saying they should be categorised as Top Ten though! Modenine lives on past glory.. He should take a cue from Jay Z and Eminem and stay relevant in the game



And if you like Linda, don't post this like you did on the other post about the graphic photo. As long as you see and read it, #MessageDelivered!

First i want to correct your notion above, MI is a gifted rapper fine and good but he is in no way out of the league of those rated on this list. So better stop bitching since u obviously know nothing about rap/hip hop.Better stick to the blogging and don't get some lazy ass numbskulled lunatics started.

Secondly Modenine deserves to be No 1 any time any day (This is only for those who understand what Rap is all about).He is not just an emcee he's a Versatile Emcee with unbeatable ryhming ability, punchline king,internationally acclaimed lyricist finally he posseses an Undisputed poetic advantage over all other rappers in Nigeria. Check out cry ft Nnena, Ogun Isoye ft Nomoreloss,Regular guy ft Nnena & Mike aremu the list is endless....Terry Tha Rapman & Sauce Kid are not exception they have got pedigree and skills


FOR YOUR OWN GOOD POST MY COMMENT COS IF U DON'T I'LL BE COMING BACK TO HUNT YOU **BAZINGA**

SOLID C said...

Well, the list may not be 100 percent correct but I agree with most of the names on it. I think JESSE JAGZ and PHENOM should have gotten on that list too. Again, I like M.I and I think he's a good rhymer but I don't agree he is the best in Nigeria. I believe MODE 9 is the best. An artiste is not the best just because he makes commercial music and sells the most copies of albums. Nah! It surely doesn't count like that in HIPHOP. Even, in America, as good as JAY-Z is, he isn't considered a better rapper than NAS. DOPE MC's are revered not just by album sales but by EVERGREEN LINES AND RHYMES that they spit. When you google even the 10 BEST RAPPERS OF ALL TIME as evaluated by MTV, you'll find that NAS always makes the cut before JAY-Z even though JAY has far outsold NAS till date. I guess REAL HIPHOP HEADS know what I'm talking about! NAS IS A RAP LEGEND JUST LIKE JAY BUT NAS GETS MORE LYRICAL RESPECT WHEN HIPHOP IS DISCUSSED IN AMERICA! In other words, M.I might be considered a very good rapper in Nigeria but he's definitely not better than MODE 9! #HiphopSpeaking

Shut up punk! U seem to know a little about a lot. Grammar can't save you out of this one cos u just spoke from the bottom of your ass....M.I, among the seven best rappers in the world. My eyes must be failing me. M.I should just hire you already. I hear he's been looking for a brand manager. Well, he just got one.

Anonymous said...

I don't even know why they had to make it a list of ten. We barely have 5 credible rappers in the country. Modenine, terry, olamide, m.I and maybe, just maybe, I don't know. Maybe a list of four would have been okay. **sigh**

**Twizzy***

Soul said...

M.I is the chairman of what? Excuse you? Puhlease, anybody who doesn't recognize Modenine as the King or Pope of rap in Africa should go take a fucking leap of faith off a fucking cliff. WTF? That aside, naeto c, vector, sdc and ice prince shouldn't be there on that list. That is disrespecting the cats on that list and those who should be there. Terry tha rapman should be apologized to by Notjustok. Same as Jesse jags, Ikechukwu and Uzi.

hilary obiorah said...

M.I is Nigeria's rapper number one NOW, judging by his first 2 albums not so much his chairman album. I agree though modenine used to be the greatest but he has taken a back seat simply because he does not do mainstream music. But asides that, I think the rest of the list is wack, for me Ice prince sings more than he raps, he is more of a Nelly, Olamide is good too, because he blends the traditional with the contemporary and Da grin woulda made this list if he was alive. Vector is good too, same goes for Sinzu. About M.I being number one in Africa? Linda haven't you heard of Sarkodie? There is a debate there.

Dana said...

Wow, easy.. Its not a fight.. We get your point buh you don't have to eat Linda raw for giving "her" own opinion.. Btw, I dunno jack about rap buh I just got a few pointers from you :D

MI to me is the best.. His ability to merge commercial success (Albums) and Hardcore Raps (Mixtape) is 2nd 2 none.. Also he is d most intelligent rapper in Nigeria and Africa. His lines sumtyms make U pause and think twice..
