    This Top 50 list was recently shared on Twitter, with the posters knowing full well there would be some pushback.

    Which is probably why it includes the caption: "Let's argue."

    Now that convo has spilled over and is everywhere.

    This TOP 50 best rappers list is currently trending on twitter.

    The discussion got an extra lift after Beats 1 and Hot 97 DJ Ebro posted his (handwritten) list of "The Real Top 50."

    If ya list ain’t handwritten it don’t count... #TheRealTop50 (*) could be ranked higher

    He has Jay-Z ranked at No. 1, the Notorious B.I.G. in the No. 2 spot and Nas rounding out No. 3.

    Here's another one with the caption: "Let's fight."

    Let’s fight... #TheRealTop50 #Ebro

    People are even including asterisks and other punctuation marks on their lists to indicate their minds can be changed.

    #TheRealTop50 (*) = interchangeable Please tag @oldmanebro!

    This guy knocked out his Top 50 list while he was bored at work.

    Someone brought up that female rappers didn't even make the list. What about Lauryn Hill?

    How you make a best rappers list with no women on it?! Type of dumb shit is going on round here. I want no parts. LAURYN HILLS ALBUM IS IN THE SMITHSONIAN VAULT AND YALL AINT MENTION HER. Hate to see it.

    Others are not really feeling these Top 50 rappers lists at all.

    Why is everyone Top 50 best rappers list trash af 😂

    And are refusing to even deal with them.

    I refuse to give my energy to any best rappers list

    The lists are also sparking some expected debates. Like why isn't Drake in the top 10?

    Any list where Drake isn’t in the top 10 of best rappers of all time is just stupid. How I gonna have Ludacris.. Ludacris in front of Drake? #Top50Rappers

    But at the end of the day, doesn't it all come down to personal opinions and tastes?

    It’s impossible to make an actual list of best rappers in order because every rapper has different strengths and there are different categories within rap so every list is gonna be inaccurate
