DISCLAIMER: This list is to be judge solely off of talent alone and not popularity in anyway shape or form. The list chronicles emcees that I feel bring it to the mic each and every time no matter the song or feature.
It is near impossible to listen to every rapper in Chicago so I did research based on the ones I am familiar with or hear about often. A good portion of the people on this list I know personally as well, but that is here nor there.
If you disagree with the placement of an artist on a list how about you give the one of above or below them a listen first before you judge, all of these artists have music that can be easily found through the use of Google or Youtube. Study the test first and then you shall pass.
All-in-all, remember that this list is nothing but my opinion take it or leave. No different than the lists any blog ever does don’t catch any feelings.
