Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn't a national holiday, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Hollywood Floss, Delo, Preemo, Tha Centop, Niq, O.N.E., Fat Tony, hasHBrown, Mac and more.

Not Invited: MC Serch, because the weasel goes pop.

This Week's Prompt: With Dirk Nowitzki serving it to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs, everyone has been going all yo-yo with the "Is He The Best Non-Black Basketball Player Ever?" talk. This is the rap version of that conversation: Who is the best non-black rapper of all time?

Hollywood FLOSS: I listen to Bubba Sparxxx's Deliverance LP, Brother Ali and Yelawolf.


Rap Round Table: So which one gets the nod for Second Best?

HF: Bubba, just 'cause I can listen to him more than the others.

Delo: Big Pun. His style was original and his wordplay was huge... no pun intended.


Fat Tony: I think King Slef, aka Sam Terrell from Supreeme, is the best white rapper of all time. He rap real good.


hasHBrown: Big Pun. He had plenty of flow even though he bit Kool G rap's style in my opinion. Honorable mention: Evidence of Dilated Peoples and Bubba Sparxxx.


Mac: I would have to say Big Pun. That nigga was a lyricist, and he had good word play.


Niq, The G.R.I.T. Boys: Big Pun because of his lyrical skill, delivery and flow... then he was a big guy doin' it!

In order: 

1. Eminem2. Big Pun (he had too punch in too many verses due to his weight/breath control)3. AZ* (if you want to count him)4. Fat Joe5. Old Vinnie Paz6. Beastie Boys as a collective7. Slug8. Chino XL9. El-P10. Immortal Technique

*If AZ counts, I'd probably through Fabolous in there based on flow alone.

ICP. And I'll defend that one regardless of smartass backlash.

No love for anyone in Cypress Hill?  There's local guys like Chingo Bling, and South Park Mexican (that guy sure flamed out hard).

I have no idea what she's saying but I like Hime. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

You didn't need a round table for this. Everyone knows that Vanilla Ice is the greatest non-black rapper of all time.

Eminem is Larry Bird, Slug (Atmosphere) is John Stockton, and Yela is Jerry West

Beatie Boys? they suck, maybe JJ Reddick?

You're 1/3. I'll give you Eminem is Larry Bird, but the other two don't make any sense at all.
