    BET held it's round table discussion to determine the "Top Ten Rappers Of The 21st Century" last night October 15.After many heated arguments, the list was finalized. Fans are bound to find the list controversial.Right off the top I noticed one glaring omission.Here's how the list was decided according to BET's "Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century" is a fierce, no-holds-barred, hour-long special that reveals the ultimate Top 10 List of the last decade's hottest rappers, whose careers blew up from 1999 to today.BET's "Top 10 Rappers" is the definitive hip-hop countdown by the ground-breaking network that gave love to hip-hop before anyone else dared. BET threw open nominations to BET digital followers, industry bloggers and other social influencers (our "Grand Jury"). More than 25,000 votes later, they returned a Top 15 list of rappers for consideration. Now, our "Hip-Hop Supreme Court" is convening to vote on the final Top Ten, based on a rapper's: flow, lyrics, subject matter, cultural impact, dough, and as needed in the arsenal of a 21st Century rapper -digital skills (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, their own website, etc.).The Court represents all of the regions of the country, and consists of nine select industry insiders - many of whom were raised on hip-hop: Jermaine Dupri (Producer - ATL); Chuck "Jigsaw" Creekmur (AllHipHop.com); Boy 1da (Producer);DJ Diamond Kuts (Power 99 FM - Philadelphia); DJ Greg Street (V103 - ATL); Tony Neal (CEO, Core DJs); DJ Timbuck2 (107.5 WGCI - Chicago); Chloe Hilliard (Managing Editor/Social Media Manager, Vibe Magazine - NYC); and DJ Vlad (VladTV.com - NYC).In their technologically tricked-out courtroom, the Court is led by the Justice - Big Tigger, who takes them through the debates and discussions about each of their own Top 10 rankings. Live votes allow Court members to sway each others' minds about their original Top 10 Lists with each countdown position!The Top 10# 1 EminemSelling more records than anyone on the list, Eminem is not only praised for his commercial success, but is highly respected by his peers for his skill.# 2 Lil WayneLil' Wayne is a rock star. The Young Money Millionaire has shown the most growth in the 21st century.# 3 Kanye WestThe highly successful rapper/producer Kanye West is more than just a rapper. But the level of his rap game has been elevated since his debut.# 4 50 CentIn less than 10 years, 50 Cent has released four albums, three of which have gone platinum (or in some cases, multi-platinum). This controversial rapper has consistently put out hits.# 5 T.I.ATL-native T.I. may be controversial in his actions, but when it comes to rap, this MC has got the South on lock# 6 LudacrisIt's hard to talk about the 21st century without mentioning Ludacris. The Atlanta-based rapper is arguably one of the most consistent when it comes to the quality of his music.# 7 DrakeAubrey "Drake" Graham has managed to win over the hearts of hip hop fans this past year. After releasing his debut album, "Thank Me Later," Drake has shown that he is the one to watch# 8 Young JeezyYoung Jeezy bumps in every whip, from the North to the South. This Southern MC is respected for his hardcore delivery and thug narratives.# 9 JadakissJadakiss has always been praised for his complex rhymes and the meaning behind his words.# 10 Officer Rick RossRick Ross bossed up the game in the 21st century. He is one of the few rappers to survive a 50 Cent rivalry by continuing to put out quality music.

    I haven't seen the whole list, but this is the citeria to get on it...
    Tech should be on it, somewhere, but lets face it, he doeznt dominate all of thoze catagoriez az of right now.
    Strange and Tech are blowin up, but they are still a dot on the radar compared some of theze other guyz.

    People who say Tech iz the best rapper alive are good to have az fanz, but its an uneducated over-statement...
    You don't know EVERY rapper alive...
    The best rapper alive iz prolly sum dude/girl who just raps for the fuck of it, and nobody important has ever heard em, somewhere out there among the 6.5 Billion people we got campin on thiz planet.
