41Mac MillerMalcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller, is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.V1 Comment
42Tyler, the Creator

Complex rhyme schemes, clever lyrics, storylines. Great flow, funny as hell and the rest of Odd Future is sick too. Should definitely be top ten.

43NasNasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time . He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

The guy needs no introduction, he's maybe the best rapper all time, your favorite rapper's idol. The reason why he's not #1 is because he's not as relevant as he once was. If you want to cheek out the greatest rap album all time, Illmatic.

T.I. is my favorite rapper of all time, but for 2012 I'd have to give it to Kendrick. I voted for Nas though, because he should be in the top 5 for 2012. Definitely better than Wiz, 2Chainz, Future, and others. Eminem shouldn't be #1. He's good but overrated.

Nas is easily at the top this year. Hopsin, MGK, and maybe Kendrick Lamar are also near the top as well.

He is the BEST rapper ever seen

44Juicy J

Juicy j has been making great rap music for a while, but this year he really makes it big. He takes his old classic three 6 mafia sound, and combines it with todays rap music sound to make something very great.

Stay trippy is at the top right now

49Soulja BoyDeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

51Chief KeefKeith Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

Chief keef is one of my favorite rappers in 2012 with love sosa made him high in the rap game

Chief keef should be first his beats and songs are legendary the best I know

Chief keef is only 51 in best rappers of 2012. He should be top 20 maybe even 10. He dropped so many bangers that even Drake, Kanye, Birdman, and T.I. hopped on the bandwagon. You have to move him up.

54Schoolboy Q

I can't wait for this guy to break out. If you don't know who he is, he's a better Kid Codi, the best stonner rapper out (way better than Wiz Khalifa). Listen to habits and Contradictions.

55Yo GottiMario Mims, better known by his stage name Yo Gotti, is an American rapper. In 1996, Gotti released his debut album Youngsta's On a Come Up under the alias Lil Yo.

Yo gotti is yet another rapper who has been in the game for a while, and this year he makes it big with his album live from the kitchen. He combines the great memphis sound I love with todays rap sound (like juicy j), and makes something truely amazing.

56J. Holiday

J holiday is the best the best two Nahum Grymes (born November 29, 1984), better known by his stage name J. Holiday, is an American recording artist and songwriter

57Busta RhymesTrevor George Smith, Jr., better known by his stage name Busta Rhymes, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, record producer and record executive.

This guy is not given enough credit for rapping

Someone forget about this speedy rapper!

58Young JeezyV2 Comments
59J. Scar

He's the best coming up! No debate he kills every track he get's on - I suggest you look him up if you have not heard of him. It's sad if you havn't.

60Snoop DoggCordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California.

He is one of the best rappers of all time, He has songs with tupac, and do not forget that it is the oldest! He deserves to be in the top 20 -
