The answer appears to be "yes": top-tier rap artists tend to have natal Mercury - Pluto configurations. Mercury is, of course, the astrological planet of language/speech and Pluto is the planet of extremes and intensity. You may notice that the more "intense" and/or seminal artists tend (somewhat) to have stronger aspects. Common sense dictates that exceptions exist... but that without accurate birth times, many charts can not be definitively ruled as exceptions. These have been omitted here (I didn't find many in the "top rappers" lists I checked).
