The Top TenXW

1Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick is so lyrically gifted he raps about what is making this world infected clashing with religion politics and inequality between women and races he thinks on such a sociological level its almost scary and his lyrics really hit the heart especially if you can relate to him kendrick usually talks to blacks in his raps making us realise we are magnificent and he's not scared to express this

You dudes are forgetting, Best rapper of 2015. "2015"

Eminem didn't even make any songs this year and your already topping him like god damn stop being an extreme fanboy, this site is way to one-sided to Eminem lol.

Kendrick definitely wins lol.

Kendrick Lamar is such a poetic rapper..."To Pimp A Butterfly" is arguably the most well-constructed rap album of the decade. - EmperorAguila

He be spiting some wicked and I wanna be just like him

Favorite Rapper great flow with Slim Shady his alter ego when he's dealing with all of stuff while having a fun attitude Marshall Mathers Eminem is more of a serious while also funny attitude with more dope songs and more grown up.

He is an amazing songwriter and actor as he has played in his film 8 mile and his songs are just as good maybe even better than any other rapper out there

I'm a Stan and your not good enough Eminem fans if you don't know what a Stan it I have been with em since the start from watching him at underground battles till now he don't know me but I know everything about Marshall his age how many grammys he's won blood type height shoe size everything don't every doubt him or I will kill you

Eminem is the best ever.

3J Cole

J COLE is a god. His music takes a little while to like, but if just sit down and listen to it, you'll realize it's amazing

J. Cole is and should be the number 2 greatest rapper behind Kendrick Lamar who should be number 1

J cole is amazing not only does lyrical content his beats are on point. I look up to J cole as a role model and all of that if I gotta say his latest album did amazing 2014 forrest hills. His top songs of all time are "workout", "no role modelz" and "she knows"

J cole is the man...

4DrakeAubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

You're crazy if you don't think Drake is the man. Every project since 2010 has gone platinum (solo), he (along with Kendrick won't discredit) released one of the most important albums in the last 10 years. He can adopt multiple flows, he is an above average lyricist and has a lot of technical skill. If you seriously doubt his rapping skills listen to 5 AM in Toronto from 2 years ago. Then come back and let me know how you feel.

He makes good music and lyrics mostly about his life which is honesty

Just turn on your radio who do you hear drake drake drake oh ya and some more drake haha

Horrible, overrated "rapper."

5Jay ZShawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name Jay Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

He is a rapper that is married to Beyoncé and I wonder if he has children and I think of you as is a good rapper almost but I never heard your music before and before when you did songs in the 2010s try to think of if Notorious B.I.G. was still alive what songs would you do with them end how many and jay you should play a popular new song with drake.

Jay Z has been musically MIA since 2014, I don't know what you're talking about - KUZGUN

He is God manufactured dude who blends culture, art and poetry in hip-hop

Did he even do anything this year? - ProPanda

7Logic

There is no equal to the amount of swagger that this dude has. He is a super hardcore rapper who is into all of the nerdy stuff like Rubiks Cubes, Star Wars, Halo, the list goes on forever. He honestly does not care about what people think about him and his lyrics are illuminating in every sense of the world. Like Star Wars there is a Dark and Light side to Logic when you hear his rapping. He is a man that wants to shine light on the Hip-Hop world while also confronting some of the dark moments of his past. If you don't think that The Incredible True Story is spectacular then you honestly don't know true Hip-Hop/Rap at all frankly. He is among lyricists such as Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Nas, and more. The coolest thing is, he hasn't even peaked yet.

Lyricism is not on a level of some like kendrick but his flow is one of the best I've heard. He's also pretty good at story telling.

He is a lyrical mastermind. Don't even know why people praise people like Eminem, Logic is the real Rap God. enough said.

The best in the game right now in my opinion he will soon be on eminem level

8Dr Dre

Compton was his first album in years, it was pretty damn good.

At this time Dr. Dre is one of the most best older rappers.

Dr dre you and snoop Dogg should make new beats.

He is cool as for inventing beats by him.

12Big SeanSean Michael Leonard Anderson, known professionally as Big Sean, is an American hip hop recording artist from Detroit, Michigan.

His first two albums were average club bangers. With his third attempt Dark Sky Paradise, he stepped into not just a proper one, but an excellent one at that. Slept on, he now definitely deserves proper attention now.

Dude has BEEN at it, he is now on my top 15. This is coming from someone who didn't take you seriously from the start. Keep bringing the magic.

Big doesn't get the credit he deserves. Puts down some of the best verses in rap.

Dark Sky Paradise was one of the best albums of 2015

He is the best rapper alive

16Tech N9ne ...read more.

Tech is one of the best ever and is the best independent rapper of all time, so if all these other rappers are better than him just because they are in the mainstream media then these people don't know what rap is

Man. This guy is wack! His music is not your generic drake song. Tech n9ne is a unique and talented rapper who can compare to any modern day rapper. ANY RAPPER! He needs to be in the top ten. - Antwon

I'm sorry, but have you heard his new album "Strangeulations, Vol. II"?
10/10 beats anything Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and J Cole have made.
What a word smith.
