Hilarious. Inside scoop... Exposing rapper Infinite. LMAO! All the comments about "infinite should be top 5" are actually from infinite himself! Along with his many YouTube accounts commenting on his own videos and dissing drake and maestro. Dude got found out. Probably the reason why his hating a@$ ain't got nowhere yet. ghetto concept should definitely be up there but not infinite alone. Sorry he stands for nothing. Sit down Inf and stop with the "self" praising bro!

#40 JUSTTHEFAM 2013-06-10 16:46
Where da fuck is ghetto concept on dis list CBC is on blow let the people decide dat shit everybody got dere own opinion but don't ever put dese young cats before mans dat paved the way for Canadian rap toronto rappers shud repost there own list and actually research Canadian rap before posting an unofficial top 25 list
 
 
#39 BobbyL 2013-05-08 07:40
1)Maestro 2)choclair 3)cardi 4)Drake 5)Massacre
 
 
#38 Teeg 2013-04-30 03:41
These are all solo artists you dumb fu#ks , this list is based on solo careers ....mad child is a beast but he's in a group, and he just launched his solo career . As far as the list goes there missin belly , snak the ripper and so on...
 
 
#37 LOL 2013-04-29 10:50
@nervorkian, shut the fuck up nigga bout drake aint real hip hop .. that's why u prolly get amped for every new hit he brings out ur a undercover dick rider tryna front like u don't know he should be #1 .. even haters kno hes #1.. Toronto wouldn't even be on the map for rapping world wide if it wasn't for drake.. and I said world wide cause hes the only one bigging up tdot when he cross the glode #OVO
 
 
#36 LOL 2013-04-14 21:08
this list sucks...Infinite (who was in Ghetto Concept) should be in the top 5...
 
 
#35 Big Picture 2013-04-14 20:40
I won't even act ignorant and pretend I know the history of Canadian rappers, even though I'm Canadian. My question is, with this list and all those names people feel were left off, WHY ISN'T THERE A MAJOR HIP HOP LABEL IN CANADA YET??? obviously not everyone can be signed not deserves to be, but I can name 25 rappers south of the border who wouldn't make a top 25 list of their own city, yet they have "hits", "club bangers", and OUR attention??? The reason I don't know about Canadian rappers is because of lack of exposure... This is what needs to change.
 
 
#34 nervorkian 2013-04-13 19:32
Seriously all these ppl for drake being number one arent true hip hop heads. Hes been relevant with tweens for 6 months..some things are far more important than money lil kids....learn something n do research
 
 
#33 nervorkian 2013-04-13 19:29
Why isnt drake number one? Gagahaha cause drake is a goof. Maestro earned thst spot yiure clearly a tween. The real questions are... where is gc, madchild prevail and since this list ia a joke wheres tom green? Moka deseeves to be on it but like number 5. Not 12 ...and any single member for sweatshop could replace joey stylez....hell ever snak the ripper if its current

#26 Devan Cage 2013-04-02 02:10
WTF Wheres Mad Child on this list!?!?
 
 
#25 SubjectiveMatter 2013-04-01 20:10
I was one of the jurors (and will remain anonymous, because it's way more fun like that) and I can tell you that I personally voted for Stump from Point Black and Infinite (who was part of Ghetto Concept) as well as Kwajo (who is still GC). Infinite made the list, Kwajo and Stump and whole bunch of others did not. A list of 25 rappers is going to leave a lot of people out, and there were a few who were included that surprised me, but overall, it's not a bad list.
 
 
#24 retro 2013-03-30 04:37
So I went to the CBC website to find out HOW this list came to be and found this:

"Promising anonymity, we asked a number of industry people from across the country, including journalists (whether or not they've written for CBC Music), as well as the rappers themselves. For the record, none of them named themselves".

It makes complete sense why guys who have street rapping backgrounds aren't on the list like Ghetto Concept, Point Blank, Smugglaz, Mayhem Morearty, and so on. I'm sure the people who were asked are industry people who frown upon that kind of rap.

We know already CBC did past street documentaries with people like Infinite and Smugglaz in a way that was misrepresented so no surprise they aren't on the list.

Infinite luckily made it, but the group he came up with didn't and they are one of very few with a Juno award?

The list would be more interesting from asking people on the streets and in the clubs as well. I'm sure half this list wouldn't make it, but then again Canada is so wide and so lowly exposed a lot of the gems wouldn't be known.
 
 
#23 retro 2013-03-30 04:24
It would be nice to know HOW they came up with this list. I see some bias on here.
 
 
#22 errrr 2013-03-29 18:23

#21 Seriously 2013-03-28 17:18
