    oldest rapper and longest tenured rapper are two different things.

    The oldest still active is probably Guru or Chuck D., who are both in their mid-40s.

    The longest career is probably a tie between LL and Too Short, who both have 20 years plus in the game.

    oldest rappers alive?

    Coke La Rock and Grandmaster Caz

    Mel Brooks made a parody rap song "It' Good To Be King" for a movie History of the World: Part 1 in 1981. That makes him the oldest rapper

    Dr. Dre?

    He debuted with NWA in '88, only 18 years ago, and he was a DJ with the World Class Wreckin' Cru in the mid '80s.

    Ice T is pretty old.

    But if you're talking still in the game making music, Flava Flav is close to 50.
