Top Rapper Guest Spots

it seems every hip-hop album ever made features at least one guest spot, here are my favs
1Nas feat. AZ
Life's a Bitch

Fitting that possibly the best guest spot was on possibly the best hip-hop album. Outshining Dre or Snoop is one thing but doing it to Nas at his peak is the reason this gets the top spot
2Notorious B.I.G. feat. Bone Thugs
Notorious Thugs

Like #8, Bone may be the guests but it's Biggie who switches his style to match his guest's rapid-fire flow, blending in style-wise but still managing to stand out
3Main Source feat. Nas, Joe Fatal and Akinyele
Live at the Barbeque

Nas' 1st official track and none of these rappers are particularly good but nearly 20 yrs later this is still one of Nas' best verses
4Snoop Dogg feat. Xzibit
Bitch Please

A virtual unknown at the time, Xzibit exploded onto the mainstream with this verse. Once again, the main artist doesn't match his guest's energy
5Dr. Dre feat. Eminem
Forgot About Dre

Outshining Dre is not that hard to do but Dre actually has a good verse here so it makes Em's show-stealing performance all the more impressive
6Cormega feat. Ghostface
Tony Montana

Cormega is a pretty good rapper but he has a very laid back flow, he fails to match Ghost's intensity on this track and gets totally ANNHILATED by GFK
7Ghostface Killah feat. Reakwon, U-God, Masta Killa and Cappadonna
Winter Warz

I tried to exclude Wu solo albums but Cappa wasn't really a Wu member and it's easily his best verse ever (which isn't saying much, I know) he closes this track in spectacular fashion
850 Cent feat UGK
As the World Turns

Bun B may be the guest but it's 50 who switches his flow to more of a southern drawl that makes him sound like a member of UGK, he also does a great hook
9A Tribe Called Quest feat. Leaders of the New School
Scenario

"Rawr rawr like a dungeon dragon" might be the only thing Busta's done that I really enjoyed, his high energy rap overshadows everyone else on the track
10Mobb Deep Feat. Lil Kim
Quiet Storm (rmx)

The original version is great but Lil Kim's guest spot on the remix where she supplies the hook as well as using her verse to viciously diss her nemesis, Kim is the only female rapper worthy of making this list
