Intelligent man doing intelligent thought provoking lyrics that should be seen as the best working after the great Food and liquor 2 and his repairs to Kendrick and the game in SLR 2

This man should be in the top 10 for sure. REAL rap. He defines it. Period.

All of his albums are classics or going to be classics

22Earl Sweatshirt

He is the best rapper this year and he will continue to be as good a 2pac, nas, and biggie. People who can appreciate rap music will understand his lyrics are some of the best anyone as ever seen and his flow is spot on. You can not beat Earl Sweatshirt

Earl sweats undeniable flow is one of the best around this young rapper will be something to watch this year when doris drops

How is Lil Wayne, Macklemore, Kanye West, and Wiz Khalifa better rappers than Earl. His flow and vocab put them all to shame

Earls Should actually be in the top 20 in 2014.

23Machine Gun KellyGeorge Francis Barnes Jr., better known as "Machine Gun Kelly", was an American gangster from Memphis, Tennessee, during the prohibition era.

This guy is beyond wonderful, his new album black flag is wonderful, believe it or not since I started listening to him. I have gotten out of my depression some of his songs really speak to me, call him whatever you want I think he the best thing that I've come across

Okay first off, Black Flag was a mixtape. His only album is Lace Up, and he is working on his second album. 2nd of all, MGK can spit pretty fast, but he is not the fastest rapper of all time. I don't even think he tries to be.

He definitely is a very good musician and is starting to change the rap game. When time passes, he will go down as a legend. He has fans thatll stick with him no matter what, and his fanbase continues to grow. And he actually appreciates his fans more then most famous people, which is awesome.

Hang in there dude, more fame will come with time.

He is #1 to me his music speaks to mean and get me outta bad moods just gotta put his music on and I'm good. Can't wait to meet him.

Mind of a stoner

36Dizzy Wright

Dizzy always puts everything he has into his lyrics. He doesn't just talk about sex or money, but he talks about his struggles and how he deals with them. Lil Wayne is trash I have heard vacuums sound better than him...

He's the next pac and is the best lyrics writter of all rappers, soon he will reach the top, PEACE!

Some of his songs are really deep and are about real life and then others are filled with savage rhymes and lyrics he is underrated and should be in top 10 at least

One of the best in the game, lyrically gifted. Deep and inspiring raps about everything. He's one to watch

He has to be in top 10. He's the most underrated rapper in the game. Because the internet was one of the best of 2013
