Mark Wahlberg. Most people forget his rap career as "marky mark" haha. Also props to Common, Ludacris, T.I. & Ice Cube.

Mos Def is probably the most consistent.
Will Smith is the most popular.
Ice Cube is the most celebrated (meaning he can do a movie for the kids, turn around and do a gangsta album, and go back to doing a movie for the kids).
Ludacris is the up-and-comer, as well as TI (go figure).
Common is the 3-lines-in-a-movie actor.

Tupac's acting was underestimated. Everybody knows the movies, but they watch them because of his music, not because he was great actor. Watch Poetic Justice, the best romantic film I've ever seen.
Mos Def and Common are good too.
