Top Ten Best Black Male Music Artists of All Time
The Top TenXW
He is the greatest of all times. Sublime music and a master at physical expression. Pure genius. Made sense of the world and had one the greatest intellect to write songs and better skill to represent them on T.V.. There will be no other Michael Jackson. He will be the greatest, not only black, but in humanity. RIP.
more awards than any other artist - period - plus he has the largest worldwide fan following - news of his death nearly crashed the internet - no one compares alive or dead!
He is a king of pop AND Love. You can tell because you see it in His wonderful and heart taking music. I just lobe him with all my heart for that. THANK YOU Michael JACKSON YOUR AMAZING
As I though I knew it he is on the list.V20 Comments
Ignorant ass Michael had a skin disease called Vitiligo as his autopsy confirms...He did not have "surgery" to turn himself white.
Secondly Michael has put over 200 black students through college and has given all of his We are the world proceeds to Africa and has had thousands of inner city kids visit Neverland Ranch. You know nothing about him so shut up.
One of the greatest artists of all time and influential rap artists. Should be one. Jackson didn't do anything for the blacks and become a white through surgeries. Tupac dedicated his life to them and his lyrics. are amazing! And deep.
Rap is a joke, it shouldn't even be on the list. I put it just above the guys who play buckets with sticks on the difficulty level
Was much more than the average rapper he was an idol, a poet and a very intelligent human should be number 1V9 Comments
Greatest guitarist ever according to Rolling Stone Magazine
The Greatest guitarist of all time.
Hendrix was a true musician, he played, wrote, produced and sang. #1 to me
Hendrix should be #1, then Prince, then Jackson.V4 Comments
I think stevie wonder should be head to head with michael jackson for the first place, he's such a great composer and he sings from his hearth and soul.
Stevie Wonder is an amazing artist. The fact that he was blind and made such inspirational and great music is astonishing.
Stevie Wonder is the BEST of the best musician in the world. He's gifted. Musical genius!
I don't think there is any song by him and can't listen to or I don't like. Can't say that about Michael.V4 Comments
He is just too smart and positive in his lyrics.
Just an amazing artist. Music today needs a role model like Bob in my opinion.
He is a god number 6 is not fair at least number 5, come on he is my favorite singer of all time
I love this guy. Music today needs a role model like him.V2 Comments
He could be so much more. His music is good. Unfortunately, his words confuse and detract from his ability to move to another level.
I actually like his music. I just wish he wasn't such a jerk like he always is.
He is one of, if not, the most influential artist/s of the 21st centuryV2 Comments
Again holding a mic upside down and babbling words using made up English accompanied with computer repetition is hardly impressive.
This ugly slacks doesn't even measure up 2 the likes of bob Marley and Marvin Gaye so what idiot put him higher than them.V4 Comments
Very underrated. Deserves higher than #8. - Alpha101V2 Comments
Number one to me. So much talent, so much vision, so much soul. Rest in peace brother.
The father of motown isn't in the top 10? What's Going On?V1 Comment
Why is he above Prince, Chuck Berry and Richie - Iluvnovemberrain
Very good vocals. Love his music. He's amazing!
This dude has only been around for a year...
It hurts my eyes seeing some of the artists listed on top of this genius.V1 Comment
Prince should be near the top of this list, he could play write and sing. Just shows how low our standards have become. Rap artists shouldn't even be on this list.
Undeniable talent. There is no comparison. He is one of the greatest artists of all time.
He should be in the top 5 without a doubt!
Man should be #2V6 Comments
Biggie biggie biggie can't you see... there are so many haters in the streets and I just love you rapping ways. I guess that's why their broke and you were so paid
Great rapper, king of NYC, at least in top five
Jay-z at the top ten and Biggie 12? Unfair! He realesed one album while alive and the 2nd 15 days after his death but his the G.O.A. T like his released over a hundred..R.I.P.. you the BEST
Three Times a Lady (long version), who can beat that song,
best song ever: listen again
He should be in the top 5 with Ray Charles, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson at the top.
Lionel richie is a very consistant artist. The songs that he has written and produced are evergreen, endless love, do it to me, I call it love, to name few.
I love his Gospel and Blues with Jazzy sound I love Georgia Georgia
Ray invented a genre. He should at least be #2.
This man made soul music. A blues base with extra jazz, a twist of gospal, a squeeze of rock n roll and a sprinlking of country. This man is the greatest, smartest and by far the most unique artists ever to grace us with his soul. His music is time less. All soul singers steal insperation friom him. As brilliant as stevie wonder is he is a large ray charles fan. That says a lotV1 Comment
Best blues singer ever to walk and grace planet earth.
Where is Luther Vandross on this list?
One of the first rock artists, why is he below kanye west?
So important to all rock genres
