Tupac came in second, while his music rival Notorious B.I.G. came in a close third. 

Other rappers to make the list include Andre 3000, Kanye West, 50 Cent,  Drake, and Nelly.

Ranker explained the criteria for the "best rapper" list on its website.

"Numerous different skills and attributes all must come together to make a truly legendary MC. Obviously, a rapper must display a sense of rhythm and an ability to compliment the beat in unpredictable and exciting ways. A gift for lyricism and vocabulary is similarly essential - you can have the flow of the century, but if the words don't come together to tell a compelling story or present a unique point of view, it's still not going to translate into a great hip-hop song."

Here's a look at the Top 10 on the list:

1. Eminem
2. Tupac (2Pac)
3. Notorious B.I.G
4. Nas
5. Ice Cube
6. Jay-Z
7. Snoop Dogg
8. Dr. Dre
9. Kendrick Lamar
10. Rakim
