Best British Rappers LyricallyThe most talented british rappers. (The ones who write the best lyrics)
The Top TenXW
Lowkey... The most real rapper in the industry (as well as immortal technique) easily the best british rapper there's ever been. He knows what he's talking about unlike other rappers/pop artists out there. Listen to Obama nation, voices of the voiceless, long live Palestine, dear England... Id say he's the new Tupac but not quite as good hahaa, defiantly in the Top 10 ever!
Lowkey is just realest rapper in the uk... Not the "i'm a gangster real" but the real when it comes to global issues, wether it be london, america or baghdad his music is on a global concious level, a person from london can enjoy so can a person living the ghettos of gaza... His lyrical skill and delivery are unmeasurable and leathal! With that skill and his strong political views Lowkey is the number 1 british rapper NO DOUBT!
Lowkey is the best rapper I have ever heard! He sings about The Third World and its exploitation by First World. This is really impressive, that he can appreciate Third World's fight for freedom... - jakubkrawczyk
Easily the best lyricist and rapper in England, he has his own mind and doesn't promote all these things these "gangsters" do either.V18 Comments
His lyrics are sick! "I used to be the kid that no one cared about that's why you have to keep screaming till they hear you out" just shows how hard he had to work to make it to the top. Can you think of a rap artist who made a song that was even meant to be released but somehow got to no1? Yeah I'm talking about pass out! Big up tinie!
Are you kidding, 4th place! He deserves to be #1. I mean have you listened to Pass Out, Written In The Stars, Frisky, Wonderman. He should be #1 without a doubt.
Children of the sun just amaze. Not the best British rapper but best in the WORLD!
I love his musicV7 Comments
This guy is with out a doubt the best rapper in England. He is initiative and isn't like the mainstream rappers you see today! Top man
Best UK Rapper ever, he is comparable to Eminem. His lyrical ability is impressive.
A good freestyler and he raps about poverty in Londons poor grimey suburbs and he keeps it realV1 Comment
He's a lot better than all you give him credit for
Chip is a multi talented artist, evident in his lyrical skills and flow. Some still need to except that at the age of only 24 Chip is veteran on the scene and is 10 years plus deep and still evolving. Chip's reply to the recent beef with artists such as Bugzy Malone and Saskilla silenced a lot of his critics, we were reminded of his talent, passion and hunger for his craft. His recent collabos with Stormzy, D Double E, Krept and Konan, Fekky, Wretch 32 and Kano have been well received. Although his catalog of music is diverse, his roots are embedded in Grime.V2 Comments
Is a pioneer to a sub genre of grime. Most critically claimed albums of any UK rapper ever. Great cross over appeal to America. In fact the first rapper to do it really. Inspired many new artists, widely respected and his boy in the corner album is arguable the greatest rap album critically ever. can't argue with facts... these are not opinions
Bonkers is an awesome song, but I didn't know that this guy was british. - Giusti97
He's still making songs nowadays, he is defiantly the most famous of English rappers, he also made the England 2010 football hit 'shout'
This guy kicks ass!V1 Comment
The hardest ghetto rapper and has an official position in the gameV4 Comments
After Eminem, Dappy is the most emotional Rapper I know... He is simply Awesome
He is the best rapper
Should be the first at the top
A real rapper there are good rappers he stands out the most
Easily the most talented rapper in the UK of all time. Dappy has an amazing way with lyrics and his delivery is on point
Dappy is the bestV4 Comments
Funny and creative lyrics! Especially in songs like Monster and Just Be Good To Green!
But some of his lyrics are quite heartbreaking, like in Read All About It and Never Be A Right Time.
Pro Green's such a great rapper, and he's so sweet and modest in real life, I just love him!
Pro Green should be number 1 as he has a diffrent vibe to the rest. With all he has been through in the past its lucky he has not killed anyone but he stayed strong and put his feelings into a rap there for he should be number 1
He's the best I know out of this list you have gave us so yer you so brillent love you
Brilliant and clever with his lyricsV3 Comments
Ghetts is easily the best mc and getto gospel is the best uk album since boy in the corner
Ghetts is easily one of Englands best talents! Stop sleeping on himV3 Comments
Akala should definitely be number 1, no-one is equal to him in terms of lyricism. Embarrassing how Dizzee Rascal is above him. Akala is both my favourite british rapper & my role model.
All round number 1 writing excellent not the cleverest though pip gets ma vote delivery is smooth as
Lyrically the best.. Gives the younger generation something else to listen to other than "bang bang on your door, 6 shots make you hit the floor" blah blha akala is really really talented and real as well check him out!
Lyrically up there with Immortal Technique and LowkeyV6 Comments
He's sick. Simple as. He gets hate from bare people and chokes in like every rap battle EVER- But he can rap, ands the best in his school possibly one day better than clixx-madting doe how he become best in England lool
He ain't even started nah I'm joking look him up he sick being human is going 2 be hard
Jarbags live he's only put up a freestyle video :(
But his tracks r actually sick BEING HUMANN! Look out for it yanno its gon be sick
Skepta is personally the best in the UK making hits constantally. He is a beast with the mic and just rips every track lyrically with sick punchlines, bars, puns, methapors, innuendos and just craziness. He is probably a rapper who is consistent with quality and quantity who has an endless amount of skill. Listen to his albums such as Blacklisted for example and hear the talent in every song. He is currently doing it major getting recognised by a lot of huge megastars like Puff Daddy making songs with him, performing with him and making big money. He is a rapper that hasn't died or has lost hype he is someone I think she be first; I am a great big fan of rappers like Lowkey and Akala and Ghetts etc but Skepta is something that is a great thing for the UK Rap industry, Boy Better Know is big so recognise. No body matches Skepta the greatest MC in the UKV1 Comment
Ghetts should be second
K koke deserves more respect than he gets, there probably more lyrical out there but not much realer, he keeps it 100
Talks about the real struggle, he still young and up an coming toV1 Comment
Wiley is the godfather of grime he should be number 1
Best rapper snm, amazing lyricist, sickest flow, more passion than anyone, modest in real life as well, seems like a great guy
The cannibal rapper who. Would eat anyother uk rapper for breakfast lunch and dinnerV2 Comments
I think his ill manors album is pure beast! Could be the best UK rapper out there, knows what he's talking about and doesn't talk crap like most American rappers, he speaks the truth about life in the streets
Plan b has by far some of the best lyrics in the industry, he's a real story teller and should be number 1 hands down.
How had some one not put him on here, he's by far one of the best, with a huge range of talent. He can rap, sing and act!
Can't believe he isn't higher ill manors gave me chills.V3 Comments
Slick Rick not even top 5, I don't understand other humans apparentlyV2 Comments
