Who is the best rapper turned actor....?

Will Smith or Mark Wahlberg....

I kind of think Mark, because The Departed is one of my favorite films but Will has a larger variety of films and possibly more versatile, who do you pick?


I'm talking about actors that no longer rap, and just choose from the choices.

Update 2:

HHRAC: He won an oscar for best supporting actor in The Departed

Update 3:

Vicky: Mos Def hasn't TURNED actor, he's a rapper AND actor.

    Will smith is one of the best actors in the world. mark wahlberg talks to animals so he isnt as good.

    Most definitely Will Smith. But since he's not very much of a rapper, I'm going to have to go with Ice Cube! I'm surprised you didn't mention him! He's a really talented guy.

    Although... Nas was really good in Belly. But what other acting gigs did he have? The State Property movies were good, but again, most of them were only in those movies.

    I'm sticking with Cube on this one.

    Im gonna go with Will Smith on this one...The Departed was good...but it wasnt only because of Walberg...Same with Boogie Nights...I wasnt a big fan of either of the rap careers...

    will smith b/c the man can do any role. he can do a comedy being funny (hitch) and drama being serious (pursuit of happyness) sci fi/ adventure (I am legend and hancock). mark has more of the adventure roles. hes a good actor but will smith is better.

  • I never thought Markie Mark could act.

    Will Smith.
