Without research My All-time would have include these two.

"What they definition of Classic is
Timeless, cause age don’t count in the booth
And your flow stays submerged in the fountain of youth"
Rakim - on Kanye West 'Classic'

"This is the difference between MC’ing and rap
Rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal, MC’s spit rhymes to uplift they people
Peace, love, unity, and Havin’ fun, these are the lyrics of KRS One"
KRS One on Kanye West 'Classic'

are two I'd have to have on any top 5 list.
