How did you miss Chamillionaire? That's an incredible name even if you don't dig his music.

Indded. Chamillionaire is awesome! I also must add the Skillionaire aka Thirstin Howl III. Both names should be on the list

Damn, man. How can you forget such classics as Lord Finesse, Puma and my all time obscure fave - Aggressively Intense Fierce MC?
