VIBE.com has released the outcome of their fan-driven poll of "The Best Rapper Alive," and after nearly a million votes the fans have spoken -- Eminem reigns supreme.

While many may have thought Lil Wayne would have topped the list, he didn't make it to the top two. It was Eminem who was crowned the globe's top MC in a tournament-style contest.

Rappers like Kanye West, Rick Ross, Nas and T.I. were given brackets, similar to the NCAA basketball teams during March Madness. Beginning in July, fans began voting on head-to-head matchups, with MC's being eliminated gradually until Jay-Z and Eminem were the only ones left.

Slim Shady won with 69 percent of the votes in the finals. VIBE said that more than 920,000 votes were cast since July.

"It's obviously an honor to have won the fans' support by being voted 'The Best Rapper Alive'," Eminem said in response to his victory. "I don't think that there is any one rapper that is simply the best though. Everyone who was in consideration and many others are the best at certain things, and at what they do. But since VIBE's offering the distinction, hell yeah I'll accept!"

Some of the surprising upsets in the tourney were when Andre was defeated by no. 3 seed The Game, and Lil Wayne lost to Ludacris.

"VIBE is thrilled we could put the debate about 'The Best Rapper Alive' in the hands of the fans," VIBE music editor, Sean Fennessey, said. "Eminem isn't just one of the most successful MC's of all time, he's also one of the most beloved. The proof is in the voting."

The win will be revealed in the mag's upcoming November issue, where Barack Obama will grace the cover.

There are people who would debate about this. Em is a dope lyricist. But I don't know about Em being the Best Rapper Alive. My opinion on that is Rakim is the best rapper alive. I'm not hating on Em. Em to me is a Top 10 MC.

Honestly.... all this should be Best RapperSSSSSSSSSSSSSs Alive. Everyone's got their own style and such, so why compare.

That's just my point of view. I'm just real tired of hearing people argue who's the best rapper alive. There are those say it's Tupac. Lil Wayne. Notorious.... Nas... etc etc etc.

I think the guy is one of the worst rappers there is. Nobody will agree with that but this is RIDICULOUS. Check out 7L @ Esoteric, they bring unbelievable rhymes. I will say this.......if I was going to a freestyle battle, id want him on my side, but his songs are not even rap, its basically comedy with a hip hop beat. I havent liked his stuff since day one, but apparently 90% of the world does.
