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.

All the others are good but Slim is the best. Love the fact that he used his trashy childhood to springboard himself into fame. When Kanye, Drake, Lil' Wayne and Slim joined together in "Forever" it was amazing.

The one and only.

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

His one white rapper

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.

He is the best rapper but makes the best music and had grate beats and meaning to his songs, he brings a twist of modern rap and good old fashioned soul.

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.

This list is messed up. After number 1 which is Eminem comes MGK? what? Yelawolf and a lot more could be number 3. MGK just because of his rap speed. Lyrically he ain't strong even he has meanings in it, the song structure aren't the best.

By far better than MGK

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.

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.

My Favorite Rapper, My List :-
1. Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) & Eminem
2. John Cena
3. Macklemore
4. Machine Gun Kelly
5. Mac Miller - WillWords

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

I think he should be #1 soon enough

His album did not go platinum for nothing

Greatest rapper ever

Dope ass dude. He doesn't fit he mainstream rapper mold, follows what he feels, and delivers em in a flowing style which can only be described as legendary. True rapper.

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

Nf should be way higher but he's still working up the ladder so I get that.

Stop sleeping on this kid, his albums has meaning

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.

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$$
