Timbaland debates the greatest rapper of all time with the First Take panel.


Timbaland has been in the game for a minute now, so when he shares his thoughts on the best rapper of all time, his opinion has some weight. The celebrated producer was the guest on ESPN's First Take today, and the question came up -- to which Timbo offered a pretty nuanced take. Tim started things off by saying "both of them are not here today," alluding to Biggie and Tupac, but things quickly got into a lively discussion  that involved Rakim, Jay Z and more.

Tim also shared some insight into how he records songs for the hit show Empire, explaining that there isn't much revision going on, so he has to make sure the idea is a solid one early on.

So, who IS the greatest of all time?
