Big Tigger Reveals His Top 5 'Rap City' Freestyles

By

Big Tigger, former host of BET's Rap City Tha Basement was a recent guest on T-Pain's Nappy Boy Radio podcast, where he named his top five freestyles in the show's history.

"It was me, Elephant Man, Buju Banton with Bobby Konders playing the music," he said. "When I go to Jamaica now they still talk about it. It's my favorite of all time."

He also named Cam'ron and Ludacris as favorites. "Ludacris had three," he remembered. "Ludacris was the only person to get best of the booth three times. I also had to put Wayne in there, because the world was excited about Lil Wayne when he put his flag in there."

Tigger has some trepidation with his last favorite claiming, "Everything after this is gonna be subjective, and this is no disrespect or shade, but I'm gonna put DMX in there."

He then says that there could easily be 25 more favorites because of all of the great moments in the booth. Tigger also revealed that there are several unaired episodes that exist due to artists being under the influence and verses that needed to be done over because they weren't good.

The show, which Tigger hosted from 1999 to 2005, was one of the network's most popular and featured artists as varied as The Cold Crush Brothers to Jay-Z. It ended its run in 2008.
