Best Rap Songs of the 2010s

Best rap songs from 2010-to the present. Feel free to add your own to my list!

I graded on lyrics, vocal performance, effort/inspiration, instrumental, realness and originality. I did not take into consideration popularity and songs that were heavily auto tuned.

The Top Ten

1 Not Afraid - Eminem Not Afraid - Eminem

Not even close. The #2 is pretty close though, Dre and Em are one sick duo as neither would be where they are without the other.

2 I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre
3 No Love - Eminem & Lil Wayne No Love - Eminem & Lil Wayne

Half of the songs in the top ten have Eminem in them which shows just how talented he is. But this is the best of the lot. Em spits the greatest verse of all time and it is in my top 5 Eminem songs.

5 Fast Lane - Bad Meets Evil Fast Lane - Bad Meets Evil

7 Otis - Jay-Z & Kanye West Otis - Jay-Z & Kanye West
8 Lighters - Bad Meets Evil Lighters - Bad Meets Evil
9 Give Me Everything - Pitbull Give Me Everything - Pitbull

Besides the terrible start off with Pitbull's dumb line, this is my favorite Pitbull.

10 Power - Kanye West Power - Kanye West

The Contenders

11 Yonkers - Tyler, The Creator Yonkers - Tyler, The Creator

Tyler displays a new batch of rap music with this song. His rhymes are amazing, and he has arguably the sickest flow and style. He is one of the greatest rappers out there, and whoever is voting up Eminem songs has got to figure it out; his songs aren't that good, and they are all mostly about the same thing

Ew. Not Afraid is #1, can't say I'm surprised but I'm still kind of disgusted. Anyway, Yonkers is easily one of the greatest rap songs of not only the 2010s but one of the best of all time. The lyrics are great, the flow is great, the beat is great, and to top it all off the song is just one big paradox. - AlteredState

Tyler The Creator sucks. This shouldn't even be here. His best song isn't even good.
