#24: Waka Flocka Flame
Yeah, yeah, we hear you grumbling over there. "How can this guy be considered one of the best MCs under the age of 30?!?" you're probably thinking. But the truth is that the game needs guys like Waka Flocka in it. Is he the most lyrical guy? No. Is he saying anything that's going to change the world? Not likely. Is he going to be mentioned amongst the all-time greats when he hangs up the mic? Absolutely not. But, if nothing else, Waka has kept it 100 at all times during his short career—and crafted a series of strip club hits that is unquestionably diesel!—all while fighting off legions of hip-hop purists and haters. And for that alone, he deserves a spot, whether you like it or not.
