top rappersIf you are reading this chances are you want to be the next big name in rap. You may already be using rap beat making software and have started writing. If you are looking for inspiration here is my choice of the top 5 best rappers ever…

5. JAY-Z

Raised in Brooklyn, Jay-Z hit the scene in the mid 1990’s with Reasonable Doubt, demonstrating a unique and fresh flow that would characterise him for the rest of his career.

Without a doubt he is one of the most successful rappers of all time, boasting an impressive 26 million album sales worldwide. Since the deaths of 2Pac and Biggie, Jay has dominated the market and ten years on he continues to do so. Not only does Jay boast some of the finest lyrics on the scene, he’s also made his name as an established and talented beat creator.

Best Album – Reasonable Doubt

Favourite Quote – I can’t teach you my swag, you can pay for school but you can’t buy class, school of hard knocks I’m a grad, and that all-blue yankee is my graduation cap.


With a tough early life growing up in the Queensbirdge projects, NY, Nas lived a tough young life. He left school at a young age and began what would turn out to be an overwhelmingly successful rap career, communicating to the masses what he’d seen with his lyrics – Nas quickly demonstrated that he was a poetic genius, illustrating the hardships of urban life through intelligent lyrics and an original flow.

Best album – Illmatic

Favourite Quote – Life’s a bitch, but god forbid the bitch divorce me.


Despite the fact Biggie only released three albums in his time, he is internationally renowned as a rap legend in almost everyone’s eyes. Recognisable by his distinguishable voice, hypnotizing style and amazing lyrics, Biggie’s career was sadly ended when he was shot and killed in Los Angeles in March 1997.

Best album: Ready To Die

Favourite Quote – We used to fuss when the landlord dissed us, no heat, wonder why Christmas missed us, birthdays was the worst days.


Since 1986 Rakim has released a relentless stream of ever-improving albums, always topping himself in terms of lyricism. Set the bar for all rap artists with his superior list of punch-lines, silky smooth flow and highly intelligent lyrics.

Best Album – Paid in Full

Favourite Quote – I start to think then I sink, into the paper like I was ink. When I’m writing, I’m trapped in between the lines, I escape when I finish the rhyme.

1. 2PAC

Unarguably the greatest rapper of all time, 2Pac dominated the industry with his mesmerising and brutally truthful lyrics, powerful voice and almost-liquid flow. With a discography consisting of award winning and chart topping masterpieces, its no surprise that the death of Tupac Shakur (he was gunned down in Vegas, 1996) is and has been mourned by millions.

Favourite Album – All Eyez on Me

Favourite Quote: You can make it through the night, there’s a brighter day.

DUBturbo Testimonial

Check out what DUBturbo users are saying about the new updated software –

adam - authorI have been DJing and promoting events for 10 years and qualified with a degree in Music Industry Management in 2002.

I have had sets in Amsterdam’s ‘Sensation’ events, Jakarta’s ‘The Stadium’, Reading’s ‘Alley Cats’ and have produced tracks for Waxy Records. I have a few tips on software and books that have made an impression on me…

As a former Cubase VST user, I found DUBturbo a lot easier and faster to get to grips with. Super User Friendly! Its got all the features I need to make beats for adding a little extra personal touch to my DJ sets. 16 track sequencer, tempo adjustment, sampler options and many many sounds appropriate for the clubber.

Easy to use with many music production video lessons and tutorials on the software – you will be up and running in no time. I like DUBturbo because you can sell your music, run online or on your mac or pc. It can make great beats and mix tracks. With a MASSIVE sample library this is an all in one package for all music makers – beginner or experienced!

I recommend Dubturbo to all my students and friends!

Thanks, Adam Mathews.
