It is rare to see such a large studio with so many established AAA IP's take a shot on a brand new IP and concept... unless that studio is Ubisoft. Ubisoft is one of the few studios that still likes to try out a new IP virtually every year.

But, I only want to talk about the best of the best. In no particular order, these are what I consider the Top 10 best Dan Bull raps.
