Who is the greatest drummer ever? This is a list of the best drummers of all time, voted on and ranked by music lovers worldwide. Add your own list or vote on the greatest drummers of all time here. Although many of the top drummers in history are rock drummers, this list is not restricted to just rock music. It covers all genres, so feel free to add anyone you think is missing.

Need some ideas for the best drummers of all time? Check out this list of the best female drummers - many of them are outstanding and certainly worthy of inclusion here.

Debate about who is truly the best drummer ever can get heated. Once you start looking at the legendary drummers like John Bonham, Neil Peart, Keith Moon, and Buddy Rich, well, it's hard to rank one over the other. Many of the drummers listed here are also singers and songwriters, and some are/were band leaders as well. If you need examples, check out this list of the best singing drummers for inspiration.

What made these famous drummers so amazing? An incredible sense of time and meter, for one thing. But it's more than just technical prowess: it's an overall presence, as well. Being a drummer is about skill, first and foremost, but it's also about showmanship, particularly in the rock genre. Disagree? That's totally fine. Just make sure you vote on these best drummers in the world, one way or the other.

<![CDATA[The Greatest White Rappers of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-white-rappers-of-all-time
Though it took a while for the music to catch on with them, some of the best rappers in hip hop history are white. While this may be hard to fathom or even accept for some, white rappers have not only been some of the most unappreciated or scoffed at in the game, but they frequently fly under the radar. These white rappers are getting the due they deserve, since after all, they are considered some of the best in history.

Beginning with the introduction of the Beastie Boys (Ad-Rock, MCA, and Mike D) in the late 1980s, it became culturally acceptable for white rappers to be accepted by the larger hip hop community. In addition to the groundbreaking Beastie Boys, in 1999, after years of mainstream white hip hop diluted the pool, Eminem became one of the most popular and respected MCs of his time. With provocative and controversial lyrics, along with association with legendary producer Dr. Dre, Slim Shady catapulted to the top of both the album charts and became at one point one of the best rappers in the game.

More recently, Macklemore has become one of the most popular rappers on the planet. His socially conscious lyrics combined with the slick production of Ryan Lewis have combined two elements of hip hop to create one of the catchiest, and most acclaimed sounds in recent memory. While there are still some people who can't stand his brand of rap, Macklemore is easily one of the greatest white rappers of all time.

This is the Ultimate List of the greatest white rappers of all time. If you notice someone is missing, feel free to add him or her. Vote on who you consider to be the best white hip hop artist of all time.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Musical Artists of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-musical-artists-of-all-time/ranker-music
When VH1 polled fellow artists to name the greatest artists of all time, it seemed like a good idea---but in reality, the list was truly flawed. According to them, Coldplay is better than Pearl Jam, Mariah Carey is only greater than six artists, etc! Not to mention other impactful artists were left off of the list. So I thought that maybe we try the countdown one more time, only this time with the perspective of true music fans...YOU..

This list will begin in no particular order, you will see some names that didn't appear in VH1's version, no artist appears on the countdown twice, and the order is not my personal opinion (I personally think Bob Marley is the greatest artist of all time). If you don't like how the list looks, you have the power to change it. This list includes some of the greatest female vocalists of the past 10 years, and many of the best rock bands and artists of all time. Many of them are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - and some will be, eventually.

So many questions will be answered with the voting results on this list. Nirvana or Pearl Jam? 2Pac or Biggie? The Beatles or the Rolling Stones? Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston? Is Michael Jackson still the King or is Elvis the true immortal? Is Madonna still the undisputed Queen of Pop? Does anyone rock harder than Hendrix? Are Jay-Z and Beyonce the most powerful couple in music history? It's up to you to decide!

<![CDATA[The Best Rappers of the 2000s]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-_00s-rappers/whatevayoulike
The best '00s rappers include any and all worthy artists who influenced hip-hop music between 2000 and 2010. This decade brought with it some of the most talented rappers the music world has ever seen, including the likes of Lil' Wayne, Rock Ross, Nas and Drake. Some rappers on this list were also fantastic in the 90s, but continued to be extremely relevant during subsequent years. Agree with the choices on this best '00s rappers list? Vote them up! Obviously, you can also vote down those artists you don't think deserve to be listed. Also? If you have a particular favorite rapper from the '00s that isn't on this list, by all means, add away!

Rap music skyrocketed to popularity in the 2000s, with artists like Eminem leading the way, as the genre went totally mainstream. In addition, the '00s saw a whole slew of cross-over rap artists charting, including the likes of OutKast and Gnarls Barkley. Some of the biggest selling albums of this decade were rap albums, including Jay-Z's 'Blueprint' albums, Nelly's 'Country Grammer' and 2000's 'The Marshall Mathers LP' by Eminem (produced by Dr. Dre). Diddy, formerly known as Puff Daddy in the 90s (and formally known as Sean Combs), released the album 'The Saga Continues...' as "P. Diddy" in 2001 and, after changing his stage name (again) to just "Diddy," he released the wildly popular album 'Press Play' in 2006. And, while Ludacris released his first album in the 90s, his major label debut came in 2000 with 'Back for the First Time.' He followed that up with 2001's 'Word of Mouf' -- thus, earning a spot on this list of the best rappers of the 2000s.

And of course, no discussion of the best '00 rappers would be complete without a mention of Kanye West. West produced for others during the 90s and early 2000s (including incredible work on Jay-Z's 'Blueprint' album), but in 2004, with the release of his debut album, 'The College Dropout,' Kanye became a huge commercial success. 'The College Dropout' established West as one of the most talented rappers/hip hop artists of the decade.

Yes, it's easy to put together a list of the best '00s rappers with names like Eminem, Kanye West and Jay-Z, but digging a little deeper produces some outstanding artists like Talib Kweli and Jadakiss.

<![CDATA[The Best Hip Hop Albums]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-hip-hop-albums
What are the best hip hop albums of all time? The answer, of course, is totally subjective. Everyone has differing opinions about which hip hop and rap albums should be ranked on top, and that's what this list is all about. Vote for your personal favorite hip hop albums ever, and vote down those albums listed that you don't feel are worthy of the honor. And, while you're at it, head over to the best hip-hop/rap albums of 2012 list and cast your ballot there as well!

The hip-hop albums here represent decades of great music from notables rappers and hip-hop artists -- some we've lost, and others who continue to make great music year after year. Some of the biggest and best hip hop albums ever made include classics like 'The Chronic' from Dr. Dre, 'Fear of a Black Planet' by Public Enemy, 'Paid in Full' by Eric B. and Rakim and 'N***az4Life' by N.W.A. And no list of amazing hip hop albums would be complete without 'Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers' by Wu-Tang Clan and 'Life After Death' by The Notorious B.I.G.

If your favorite hip hop album isn't listed here, by all means, add it. And don't forget to include whatever great 2012 hip-hop albums you loved. They might be new, but some are instant classics.

<![CDATA[The Dopest Rappers of the '90s]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-_90s-rappers
The best '90s rappers and rap groups brought us some of the best rap songs of all time with artists like Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, and the Notorious B.I.G. dominating the decade. Often described as the "golden age" of hip hop and rap, the 1990s introduced many rappers and rap groups that would go on to become the best rappers of all time.

During the beginning of the decade, prominent acts and rappers like Ice Cube, LL Cool J, and Public Enemy led the charts as their fame, first established in the 1980s, continued. Each brought something new and interesting to the rap world, such as Ice Cube's 1991 release of "Death Certificate," which dealt with real-world issues like racism, Los Angeles gangs, and drugs.

As the decade continued, one of the best rap albums of all time came along in 1992. Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" made the now-legendary producer and rapper's name, along with the name of another up-and-coming rapper, Snoop Dogg, known around the world. Snoop and Dre represented the West Coast of the United States and alongside the late Tupac Shakur and the rest of the Death Row family, these rappers dominated the genre for the next several years. But there was another coast ready to battle for that top spot on the charts.

Enter the Bad Boy family from the East Coast with top names like Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs and Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace. These two sides were crucial in the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry that not only produced some of the top rap music of the decade but also ultimately ended the lives of 2Pac and Biggie, as both were tragically murdered.

All of these rappers and their music influenced and ushered in a new generation of rappers, the best rappers of the 2000s, and put up a good fight for the best decade for rap music ever. Which 90s rapper is your favorite? Vote for the ones you like the best below or add your favorite to the list!
