Best Hip Hop Artists of 2012Camnewtonmoney
The Top Ten
Eminem will always be number one. No one can compare to his lyrics. These new artists today are lame and one hit wonders, Eminem has been number one since his infinite album.
He is the King of Hip Hop and once he dies so dos Hip Hop no question about that he is the King and every one else dos not compare to him. Eminem KING OF HIP HOP!
Way better than Wiz Khalifa. Eminem is the king of everything.
He is the white PacV 18 Comments
Had the best year by far in 2012. I love Eminem, but he can't be the number one hip-hop artist of 2012 when he didn't even release anything that year. It just doesn't make sense, no disrespect to the legend Eminem though
Obviously the best artist no question. Nobody is as talented
Just listen to Cruel Summer!
To the world Ft. R Kelly
I don't like Ft. Good Music
He is amazingly genius lyricist and great with word-play.
And what is Lil Wayne and Drake doing here?
Eminem could be first, BUT in 2012 he hasn't done anything so sadly he can't be first :( so its Kanye all the way for me :D
If you can point out a bad song from kanye, let me know.V 1 Comment
Drake had the best year take care was a nice album not to mention he was featured on almost track he stayed consistent with hit after hit the whole year something a lot of artists including Lil Wayne couldn't do
Drake is awesome. His Take Care album sold 600,000 copies in like the first few days. No one can top that.
Drake Killed everybody.. "Take care" hit the billboard and nobody tried to get dissed by drake this year...
Drake is arguably a rap masterV 3 Comments
Big Sean was on fire with his album Finally Famous A$$ till I die mercy you name it. - Camnewtonmoney
Been my favorite rapper for many years big sean for life!
This list is genuinely atrocious, how is lil wayne no1 if anything he declined majorly in popularity! Kendrick actually impacted hip hop in a way that no one has since kanye first came out basically - good kid, M.A.A. D city was easily one of the best of the year and the most likely to save hip hop from so many waack rappers on this list
Hottest mc of the year by far. He is bringing back real hip-hop.
Kendrick Lamar should at least be in 10th place love you dude
How is he so low? He made the best album of 2012.V 3 Comments
I love this chick shes awesome I met her two times and it was really cool I love her so much and she is my idol! I beez in the trap
She have the song is more fun and make me happy than every hip hop song I don't know whyV 1 Comment
Don't know exactly why I enjoy his music. Some of the lyrics he spills are sick! And some are trash. I am not gonna hate on anyone else, but I wouldn't just judge someone for no reason.
Lil Wayne is one of the best artists ever
the Carter IV
Best lyric... Really make you think
His style is classicV 11 Comments
Out of all ten my nigha Wiz is the best... But if 2 chainz, future, or my nigha kendrick lamar was up here kendrick lamar woild be number 1V 3 Comments
NUMBER 20! Seriously just hear Life Is Good and he'll be number 1 in your list
Nas is the king of rap. He put in his dues LONG TIME AGO and if drake is a "rap master." THEN NAS IS A RAP GOD!
Mac Miller is one of the few artists out there with a variety of sounds and lyrics. I can put on a Mac Miller album/mixtape and listen all the way through because I never get bored with his raps. Amazing.
Been listening since lasers. I love this dude.
Rack city and faded and make it nasty were all great hits an his album was good - Camnewtonmoney
Tyga can take any beat and make it hot
Although I don't like chris brown so mutch because of the rihanna incident... I will say I'm impressed with his career he has made a big comeback for sure... Lately he has been a little hit maker.
He had a couple of hits and was featured in some hits - Camnewtonmoney
I think he should be on the top ten listV 2 Comments
2 chainz should be number top 5 he has done some awesome doets with kanye west like birthday
Pitbull really made an impact this year - rain over me, give me everything were just awesome.
I like feel this moment better with Christina Aguilera
