Em ee tee aitch oh dee MAN is so fucking great

Treach was surprisingly not horrible.

DMX was serviceable.

Common is probably the most talented actor out of those named, besides Will Smith who I don't even really consider a rapper.

Pac was great, honestly.

Luda and Lil Bow Wow were good in their F&F roles

Ya this, pretty much.

There's lots of rappers turned actors (at least for a movie) but most don't enjoy the success that Common or maybe Cube have since in Hollywood.

He also sucked as a rapper so at least he's consistent?

Will Smith is the most successful and may be the most talented, too.

And Tupac was damn good!

I honestly believe that Pac would have gone on to become one of the most famous figures in both pop culture and politics if the Illuminati hadn't gunned him down

Off the top of my head...
Juice - he wasn't the lead, but he fucking MADE that movie
Poetic Justice - basically just Tupac in a hood romance/drama flick. It's ok.
Above The Rim - plays the heavy; more of a supporting character from what I remember.
Gridlock'd - low-key flick (wasn't a huge hit), but I really liked him in it. Him and Tim Roth were great.
Bullitt - Playing the heavy again, but more significant role than Above The Rim. His last movie if I remember right.

He passed away just as more movie roles were starting to come in.

Gridlock'd was great.

Gang Related was really good, too. Despite costarring the lesser Belushi
