Best White Rappers

The Top TenXW

1EminemEminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

Lets be honest was is really a surprise. Selling 60 million albums worldwide, Eminem is not only widely considered the best white rapper ever, he's considered one of the best, and most controversial, rappers of all time. He kicked down the door for white rappers to be legitimate, not just novelty or underground acts. - anthonybecerra831

Eminem is definitely the best white rapper, he's one of the best rappers of all time. He has definitely changed Rap and Hip-Hop, he's one of the best rapper in all time. And into eyes the best rapper alive.

Is just the best hands down don't even need the top ten white he's the best ever and yes I know it's all opinion but opinion or not he is absolutely in the top 3 but he would be in the second place even If he was in top three because Tupac is "the best of all time"

I love slim shady you're my idol hope you read this.

2Machine Gun KellyGeorge Francis Barnes Jr., better known as "Machine Gun Kelly", was an American gangster from Memphis, Tennessee, during the prohibition era.

He should be number 2 Behind Eminem and before YelaWolf. He has great flow and can rap really fast.

Not only is he an amazing rapper with meaningful lyrics he his a movement for thousands of kids out there EST Everyone Stands Together LACE UP!

He has a great sound. He can definitely rap and his lyrics speak to me. It's just something that I know I can listen to when I know I'm having a hard time

I am an eminem fan...but I love mgk...he is really worthy enough fa the no 2 spot

3G-EazyGerald Earl Gillum, better known by his stage name G-Eazy, is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer from Oakland, California.

Great rapper and great performer. Truly one of the greatest for me, deserves a place right behind Eminem. "Coldest white rapper in the game since the one with the bleached hair". Been following him for years and he's just getting warmed up y'all. To the people thinking his songs miss substance: look under the surface, read between the lines, listen to all his songs and you'll find the substance for sure (Everything will be allright, Marilyn, Must be nice, Shoot me down, Far Alone, Downtown Love, Sad boy, Remember you,...) I like that he has the struggle between being famous, wanting to be alone and just wanting to do well in life and for his family. Love his gratitude and openess about being sad once in a while and having anxiety about people and live. He's one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to empowering me to work hard for what I want in life, work hard and party hard. From the bay to the universe! You go, G.!

Kid is nice but not much substance in his raps. Still pretty cool and has that James dean swag

His look, his music, his lyrics are all from the past with a modern twist which just seems to work in his songs. He continues to get better with every album and will definitely become one of the best rappers in the game.

I love G-eazy, in some of his deep songs, you can really feel the emotion

4YelawolfMichael Wayne Atha, better known as Yelawolf, is an American hip hop recording artist from Gadsden, Alabama.

I can't NOT vote for Yela. He stays to his roots, he didn't go all Hollywood like a lot of rappers do, and he's from the great AL (automatic points). 10/10 awesome. Only people on this list that might be better than him (though I think it's a tie, with Eminem pulling ahead, but he's been around the longest, so... ) are Eminem and MGK

One of the most underrated ARTISTS. Guy is really one of the best songwriters of the present, as he showed on his new album Love Story. Has a lot of substance and passion in his music unlike most rappers who only talk about drugs, money, and women..and never sold himself out to make Pop radio hits like 95% of rappers today do.

He totally deserves number 2, no rapper no matter what color they are touch eminem but this guys is 2

Yelawolf should be number 2

5Mac MillerMalcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller, is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Have you heard faces? Or watching movies? Classic album in my opinion

Just a dope mellow person who is also a sick rapper

He needs to stop taking drugs, only flaw.

Definitely the most creative

6MacklemoreBen Haggerty, known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.

How is this guy not on the list... For starters, many people have been saying he is one of the best white rappers for a while now, and he rapped out Thrift Shop.

End of story.

He is now looked on as mainstream but if on listen to his old albums you will be amazed

He's obviously one of the best. He's the first white rapper since Eminem to win granny's.

He is my favorite

7Mike ShinodaMichael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

I don't think people really know Mike's rap tracks since Linkin Park's hits kinda mask all their other songs, if you haven't.. check out songs like " High voltage", " I have not begun", When they come for me", Wretches and Kings, "wastelands", and " until it breaks".

He also goes under the name " Fort Minor", that's completely Hip hop, if you haven't.. you should definitely give it a listen.

I Really didn't know him until linkin park and tracks "in the end" and "high voltage". And his not just a rapper his also plays A LOT of instruments! He's ALSO a great singer, songwriter and artist! Most of his lyrics have a deep meaning!

Mike is a true artist. I'm also an Eminem fan, but M. Shinoda can play more instruments than I can count, do visual art (like paintings and stuff), and rap like a genius. Between that and all the charity stuff he does, I'd say he like a modern the Vinci.

I love Linkin Park so I love mike shinoda but I also love MGK and Eminem

Why is he not top 3? Seriously do any of you actually know what rap is? He has an amazing flow and good lyrics, the only reason I can think of is he is mixed.

Well he's mixed but it literally sickening he's not in the top 3

Should be number 2 his flow is amazing and his songs have so much meaning

Logic is honestly the next Eminem

Why the hell is UBI 8th! Has anyone heard his lyricism. The way he puts his thoughts together and makes it rhyme puts him in the top 20 of all time for me. He definitely beats Lil Wayne and Drake by a long shot. He's just never noticed because he's not mainstream.

I expected him to be with Eminem on top but he is down here?

This list is so messed up

Put him on top with Eminem

If you don't vote for him means you got some ear problems

Pitbull is a disgrace I don't know what you guys are talking about he is a trash pop,mainstream artist

Check him out. Listen to uncomfortable and vendetta. Slow starts but when the beat comes you won't be disappointed

Amazing artist. better than pitbull and mac miller. right on par with Logic (who, by the way, should #4)

Rittz kills it every time he spits. There's no doubt about that, but he doesn't get the credit he deserves. I know he's better than Yelawolf. Next to nothing was second on the record sales when it dropped so I think that probably says it all. The way he words his rhymes and the beats he kills, there's no doubt that he's in the top five white rappers hands down. Bloody Murdah!

I love me some rittz! I relate to so many of his songs.

P.s. he should at least be in the top 5!

Only white rapper ever deserves any thing is Eminem

Amazing music

13NFNathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician.

Amazing flow! His second album, Therapy Session was easily the most hyped and strongest album of the year! He doesn't fit the Christian rapper mold and he is able to flow between mainstream and Christian rap. Just depends on his mood.

Yes. Look up Hands Up, Wake Up, All I have, and Just being me by this guy.

He is the Christian Eminem. GO NF, keep being awesome! - LarkwingFlight

Similar to Eminem in my opinion

14John CenaJohn Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

Cool dude and nice guy but nobody has ever heard his songs, at least I haven't.

Good lyrics make way more sense then others

His album did not go platinum for nothing

Honestly the best - nwolf1151

15TobyMacToby McKeehan, better known by his stage name TobyMac, is a Christian hip hop recording artist, music producer, hip-hop and pop artist, songwriter and author.

T-Mac has gone more pop lately, but he still has the occasional rap song. And when he does, it's always amazing! - LarkwingFlight

This artist has a righteous rap that doesn't need to four letter word it to say it.

16Slug (From Atmosphere)

Amazing rapper, basically just a poet. He rhymes with a smooth flow and meaningful words. In my opinion Camera Thief is his best song

Hoodie Allen is awesome. Have you heard Leap Year? One of my favorite albums of all time. His beats are dope and his lyrics are so good.

Yeah! This guys songs are so real! He's awesome! - Graham

He is so awesome
Definitely in top 5..
1. Mike Shinoda (Of Linkin Park)
2. Eminem
3. Hoodie Allen
4. John Cena
5. Yelawolf - WillWords

Yeah this dudes the best

Rap is about content, and brother ali definitely has it. Just listen to Uncle Sam damn

20Paul Wall

How is The People's Champ so low? This guy been sticking to his guns since day 1. He loves cars, grills, money, and women, in that order. If you haven't heard his new album Slabgod, go check that out. He can't (or hasn't shown he's able to) do the fast/complicated rap stuff that some guys above him can, but he shouldn't be outside the top ten.

Sittin sideways was my childhood memory and still on all 4 s was bada$$
