The Top Ten

Lecrae is easily the best Christian rapper out there. He places actual scripture alone with great production and the flow is off the chain. It really doesn't get much better then 'Crae
No competition. Lecrae owns everyone on this list. His song Transformers is amazing! I have never even heard of these other fools y'all musta never heard a Lecrae song otherwise he'd be number one.
Man! This dude is just way too cool! He is suppose to be the number 1st Christian rapper ever! This guy can rap better than Eminem or Lil Wayne!
[Newest]He is nice... I looking for his right now and he gets top play in the truck.

More comments about Lecrae

2Trip Lee
Ok Lecraes the best, but in my opinion Trip Lee is just as good.
As for others above trip:
Toby Mac has turned more to pop (have you heard Eye On It? )
Thousand Foot Krutch is mainly rock (not much rap)
Manafest is good (but not better than trip)
& Kj-52? Come on. He has some good stuff but he has to have 24 tracks on a cd to produce one good song (because the rest is junk)
I LOVE TRIP LEE, clearly deserves to be #1... But I have to pay my respects to lecare he's just as good.
I love Trip Lee music... Reach Records can't be touched...
[Newest]He deserves to be #2, and might actually have better songs than Lecrae. The only thing that makes him not as good as Lecrae is the amount of songs he has.


3Andy Mineo
This guy can rap! Listen to his: heroes for sale...
Andy Mineo is the cure if your missing music that bumps. Not only does he deliver the word so everyone can understand it but I got my unsaved friends really interested in Jesus because of his music. I love this dude!
Andy is awesome if you're looking for good clean fast rap and a good bass kick Togo with the Andy is the best. He also give a great message.
[Newest]I like andy's sense of humor:-)

Insane rapper! He puts Eminem and Lil wayne to shame!
KB is a beast with Church Clap, Go Off, and Zone Out these songs are great pump up songs.
KB should be near the top! Songs like Go and Angels are awesome!
[Newest]It will be interesting to see how the "Tomorrow We Live" album turns out.

Don't no what tedashii is doing down here
Have you heard Tedashii? Trip Lee? Andy Mineo? These Reach guys are as good as they come. They have to be at the top.
HE IS THE BEST. I hear a lot of people say how good Lecrae is but Tedashii (in my opinion) is better. He just can't be beat... Wait... WHY IS HE DOWN HERE, LISTEN TO SOME OF HIS SONGS HE DESERVES TO BE #1.


[Newest]Tedashii is the reason I started listening to Christian Rap.

He is just awesome. He flows with the beat and his creativity is incredibly rear. That's watsup for the man himself. "Flame"
Flame is one tot the greatest I've heard! Joyful noise is awesome! So is surrender feat.V. Rose! Several of his albums have gotten top 10 on the billboard! But all Christian rappers are GREAT as long as they pursue and rap about Jesus Christ.
He is just awesome... For example letgo kool one
[Newest]I saw this guy when he performed at my old high school


If we are judging purely off of musical talent and control, Canon is simply the best rapper on the market right now, secular or Christian. Eminem has his moments, but is simply not the same artist he was in the early 2000s. Jay-Z is quite overrated. Lecrae is a good rapper, but his position at the top of the list is based mainly on his total success and market exposure. He had accomplished much more than Canon with the help of a much more successful record company. However, one listen to Canon's latest projects such as Mad Haven and Loose Canon Volume 2 show a mature and extremely skilled musician.
Canon is absolutely the best Christian rapper there is no comparison just listen to his songs, good to go, ten toes deep, loud music, and where is mad haven, also hear him freestyle every one of his lyrics syllables are spoken perfectly and he is like three times faster than Eminem who sucks
So fast and he has good lyrics with awesome beats and a good flow
[Newest]Have you guys listened to any of his songs! He raps faster than Eminem! I have one suggestion... Listen to Canons song "Good to Go" That proves that he is faster than Eminem

8Derek Minor
Young up and coming rapper that really has the good lyrics and smooth flow that I'm looking for in a rapper.
He alright I have heard better Christian rappers than him but he has some good and meaningful songs
His new Album Empire is probably one of the best albums out there.

kj 52 is awesome, and probably the best christian rapper out there. he is also good for people who love eminem music, but can't stand the vulgarity.
I love his music. He can be both funny (Fivetweezy), strait forward (Cry No More).
He's great listen to the songs, Right Here, and You're Gonna Make It. He's so motovational. I love him
[Newest]Best Christian rapper I've ever seen! This guy is the best for meaningful, fun and serious music. All of his albums are awesome! #KJ52

10Da' T.R.U.T.H.
Speaks the truth just as his name...
Jesus is for everybody!
Umm hello? I can't believe he's not on the list yet- "i can't believe", "Jesus is for everybody"?
[Newest]Him and Lecrae are top 2 world wide. This chart is full of 116 heads voting

The Contenders

11Black Knight
Honestly, He works the most creating his own beats and beats for other artists, while still having time to create great lines for himself.
He's got his own unique sound and style
It's the black knight! Enough said.
[Newest]It it it's the Black Knight

The most passionate christian rapper I have heard in my life. His songs are both encouraging the listener to be righteous and Holy, his flow and beat is awesome and he gives GOD all the honor and glory. Bizzle is way too underrated.
Bizzle in my opinion is just as easy talking when reaching the youths getting tainted by negative rap as he is hard on those rappers that need to be beat into submission.
Bizzle is lyrically the best. Lecrae and him are up there lecrae is more catchy more accepted from the outside. Bizzle will never be invited to 106 or other mainstream events prolly not even sway because he has more conviction in his rhymes. The reason he isn't ranked higher than 5 on everyone's list is because not too many people know about him but his we'll wishes album has so many collarborations things will change. By the way the albums proceeds go to helping people in Africa with there supply of water100%.
[Newest]Nozzle has AMAZING lyrics. He's fast too. Catchy beats. Should NOT be this far down the list!

13Fluent Sound
Gotta check these guys out. Heard them through sound cloud and they are amazing!
Good Christian rapper out of Minnesota, these guys got bomb flow and can really deliver the message.
They will dominate the Christian hip hop world. Maybe even the real hip hop world.
[Newest]They should be way lower

Snap off - look it up if you think he should be this low on the list.
Motivation if you're not into the harder beats that he drops
The only reason he is way down here is because I did NOT like his new album fallen king... But for some reason everyone else did.
Snap off is boss
[Newest]Saw him live and one word describes him best Amazing! God has blessed him with a great gift. It's fantastic to see what he is doing with it.

15Canton Jones
Oh heck yeah Canton Jones is great he needs to be higher on the list.


He really rooted in the word

16TobyMac (DC Talk, Solo)
Number one in my book. Great music with godly lyrics. I own every album and they are some of the best money ever spent on music. His music has great beats and is encouraging. He was in one of the first Christian rap groups that started the movement (DC Talk). He continues to make great music even with the help of his kids.
6th! TobyMac deserves much better than this position in the list! He is spectacular with his works like Ignition, Jesus Freak (with DC Talk), Atmosphere, Gone, The Slam, Love is in the House etc.
I am just going to say that when it comes to rap, I am not a really big fan. But when it comes to TobyMac (solo) I am a BIG fan. I love TobyMac. Eye on it, Tonight ft. John Cooper from Skillet, Get This Party Started, everything. TobyMac knows how to mix music with Christianity.
[Newest]Best ever. Why isn't he #1?

An excellent blend of intense rock with amazing rap. His newest album is more rock, while his older ones are more rap. This music is so awesome, and the guy is Christian too!
Love Manafest. Lecrae is obviously the best, but I'm voting him up because he deserves to be top 5 because he is a legend to rap-rock in my eyes
No Plan B Is Crazy Good.
Can't Stop Listening To Manafest.
Keep Up The Good Work.
[Newest]I think we all know who is the best manafest are you guys hearing me his new singles off the moment are wicked

Probably the best lyricist on this list. The concepts of his songs are original and thought-provoking and his words are often very poetic. He's the type of artist who deserves a wider audience, but is too challenging to appeal to a mass audience. It's unfortunate, but I'm glad someone is making music like this.
He's a good fast rapper that's real and he's a good man of god
Great rapper, his lyrics are very thought provoking

19Nate Feuerstein
I love your music. I have listened to it non- stop for the past like week... I have played all of your songs from YouTube over and over and I'm still not tired of listening to them. (Although, I do hope you come out with more) please don stop. You are an inspiration to everyone. My fave song is beautiful. First off it made me fall in love with you and second, you have a beautiful heart for writing a song to encourage girls. So thank you truly. If anyone reads this, lists to NF's music. It will change your life. Thanks again
Nate Feuerstein is a great rapper. He may sound like Eminem, but he brings his own message and story to the mix. Check out "Start Over" with Flame, and "Alone"!
One of the greatest rappers of all time. I can't wait for Mansion. He is way under-appreciated. He should easily be second on this list.
[Newest]Currently one of the best Christian Rappers out there. He's going to do big things.

Love this guy. He even goes to my church!
Very unique and creative
Json is one of the best hip pop rappers

5ive shares the true gospel and even if there is 10 people in the audience or thousand he will go hard on his music because he speaks from the heart and he wants to save souls! Its not about the performance to him he is truly praising GOD every time he gets on that stage!
Wow! 5ive is unashamed of the gospel! My favorite rapper ever! Thanks for sharing Jesus! And he's a pretty awesome husband as well! -5ive's wife
Love this, my boy Craig goes hard in addition too walk the walk off stage as well! Looking forward to seeing what's in store for him! Blessings! Step
[Newest]Not a good rapper, thinks about themselves all the time

Pro (Derek Minor) is great with lyrics and beats should be 6 or 7
He should be much higher 2 or 3 but so should TRUTH
Honestly he is overrated

OOH AHH is amazing last years bball pump up song.
Because is more modern and more good for this planet is more atractive for conversions.
Greatest christan artidt group of all time!

24Shai Linne
Shai Linne has just got his music and Theology sorted. Thanks for Biblical based music! Who new you could have expository bible teaching in a Song! Whoop!
"If you come to Jesus for money then he's not your God, MONEY IS!
This dude is on point with his theology! Every song is so biblical, he's one of my favorites!


26Beautiful Eulogy
Wonderful poets, and rappers, and have one of the most unique sounds in Christian Hip-Hop
These dudes are so creative with their music, it's awesome! In my opinion they should definitely be ranked higher than 23
Beautiful Eulogy are just awesome, they deserve to be in the top 5
[Newest]They are my favorite

One of the most talented, genuine and consistent artists I know. Grinds hard and he wants to see others be great. A true leader! Plus he cold on the mic and the production!
He is the best doing it plan and simple wonderful man of God
Everything Puntin puts out is fire! Can't wait for Bananas 4

He is a person who has went through a lot growing up. He manages to get to know Jesus. He has an amazing voice. He is an amazing rs

Var-G speaks wisdom and knowledge in his music its not just about his beats its about life experience and mostly about God. He is a very gifted person and passionate when it comes down to family and all kids, he want the best for them. I can go on but there's not enough time or space. I love his music its brings life to people.
Var G is a very inspirational person, I just love his music and his talent. I wish that God continue to bless him thru it all. He is always sending a message of what a person need to keep piece in his or her on life amen.
Never really listened to Christian rap until I heard Var-G music and now I'm all ears. God Is Great. A devoted God fearing family man who's full of inspiration

30Seckond Chaynce
Ok, I admit tedashii is my fave, but this guy NEEDS to be higher. Just listen to Spirit Fingers!

31Dwayne Tryumf
He's a good rapper and he preaches the gospel well
He made " don't pack a matic " so he's pretty beast.
This guy is Amazing!

Really Really common this is a joke he should be higher

Well all of these are great. Putting them against each other in their skill is very difficult. Viktory is the man and deserves some recognition.
Fast flows and gospel message together is unbeatable. has great talent
Viktory is at least at the top 5 want a overrated list

Realist I ever heard

Best most underrated Rapper in the game! Listen to the album "So it continues" EVERY SONG IS AMAZING
This guy is the best Christian lyricist guys, I mean really, listen to my life, or back to school.
Definitely one of the most real rappers out there. And the only one I know that lives in the U.K. His music is for those that go through hard times and know that this life isn't all rainbows and sunshine.

36John Reuben
How is John Rueben not in the top 10.

37Corey Paul

38Holy Ghost Ridaz
#1 Christian Rapper In Texas, Nominated 4 Times For Christian Hip Hop Artist Of The Year For 2013.
Holy Ghost Ridaz 4 Life. Down to earth, Holy filled, demon chasing, people of god. Love the song lean low
It's all about Jesus Christ when it comes to "Holy Ghost Ridaz" He is so passionate about spreading the Gospel.


[Newest]Amazing testimony and rapper

He has a better flow than anyone in the top ten! Great beats too. He is one of the best rappers on the indie scene period.
INDEED! True lyricist! NO DOUBT!
Laugh out loud check out his freestyle with wade-o

Most people know this guy just from his verse on Derek Minor's Dear Mr. Christian, but not only has Dee-1 been in the game since 2004, he has over 10 projects, so you can't really complain about this guy not having much stuff out.
Saw him live. Really hype with a good message and knows the game of people who struggled.
Dee-1 Against Us is dope.


42Family Force 5
These guys are too fresh to be no 8 with chainsaw even non believers would enjoy and tap into the spirit behind the music
These guys shouldn't be on the list, just because they aren't rappers.
FF5 has been one of my favorite artists all my life, but honestly, they don't have enough rap to be you know.. top ten

A seriously seriously underrated rapper. The Snoop Dogg of Christian rap. Look him up on YouTube.
Dope the boy is tight
Best I've heard real background real story to share great testimony and you feel the words he's the closest thing to Hiphop on this whole list!

Tony Montana is a metaphor for jesus

45Dre Murray
How is Dre Murray all the way down at this number!?
He is the best go on YouTube and search WLAK arena great song

Dude is talented and is not afraid to go with a Jesus flow. I hope he gets recognized.
This man keeps it real 100%
This man is dope

47Mike Real

48Lil' Dre
Yea I've got to give it up for lil Dre he got some realistic. Lyric in his song #1- fill me up -look that song up - and #2 I trust you. and he got other songs out there that's nice as well.
Dude, I can't believe he already wasn't on this list. He can do just about anything and his lyrics are motivating. He's almost as good as DL-12 in my opinion.

Who forgot about him?

I like these guys. The lyrics are amazing and meaningful and the love they have for the Lord is shown clearly in their video clips. Awesome band.
I recently bought their most work. Its awesome I've worn a grove in it and its about Jesus!

51Eshon Burgundy

52Alonzo Abano

53HeeSun Lee
She may be a woman but this girl can rap and she definitely worships god while she taps.
Shes defying odds. That alone should elevate her
I BREAK STEREOTYPESfeat. MC JIn. Search on YouTube

54Destiny Lab

55MC Jin
Asian rapper. Buff said. He even turned he from battle rapping.. He was a dang good one over there.
He's top 10, at least top 15 in my opinion!

56Beacon Light
Amazing artist with amazing album "Light on" My favorite track is "The Greatest"

57J. Vero

58Stephen the Levite
Lyrical theology you can nod your head to. This man wastes no lyrics and makes every point seem effortlessly made. Worth a listen.


60Group 1 Crew

61Capital Kings
I really enjoy Capital Kings! They're less of a rap group, and more hip hop/pop, similar to Group One Crew's style. Definitely one of favorite up and coming groups. Excited to see new works from them.
Again, I have nothing against these guys, but they deserve to be on a different list, because they aren't really rap.

62JB Real
The most underrated and overlooked Christian rapper who could I think is the best rapper alive because of his rhymes and punchlines

63Mahogany Jones
Another Female Christian Rapper that just praises god while she raps!

64I.C. Jonez


66Mr. G Reality
If you use to like Tupac you will like Mr. G Reality. He got the same type of flow and sounds like him too.


Kidd is SO TOTALLY going to be the next Trip Lee. But honestly, what little I got to hear from his latest album wasn't that impressive to me. But Class In Session is DOPE & free, as well as his arguably best songs ever Young Disciples.
Type in first word problems. Boy
Young but a beast

69T Haddy

70Alex Faith
He should be up there
This is not right

71Christon Gray
Has an amazing voice but can rap to complete it

72Eric Hilgers
This guy is amazing and his rap style is similar to la cra's. he is very inspirational.

73Dre Da Flame

These guys are straight dope and drop theology.

75B.I.G Shadow
Songs like daddy, Red Shoes and if it was you. Real music.

76Big Mic Muzik

77I Am Chris Carter
Has a strong buzz on the underground
Check him out on YouTube "I Am Chris Carter- Do You Believe In God"
This guy is new and his music goes hard deep he will be the next Tupac of gospel rap no doubt

78Uncle Reece
Wish he would come out with more stuff, because he would definitely be top 10!

79John Givez
This guy is all kinds of good. From his flow to his vocals. Without a doubt the Andre 3000/Kendrick Lamar of Christian Hip-hop. His album IV Seasons has no whack song. Check him out on YouTube. Should be in the top 10
I don't see why he is not in the top ten category, because he is just the best, lecrae is a legend but Givez is the best listen to IV Seasons different style altogether, not a single whack song. He is one of the few in the industry right now featuring on every project, that should tell you a lot about his skill and how important it is to CHH. he is the future.


Hands down the best artist on kings dream

RPSMG is easily one of the best CHH raping groups! Go check out there mixtape "we do it"

New up coming artist, but definitely has some good lyrics! (Did songs with the Truth and T dot)

82K-Lee Veals

83Young Chozen
Young chozen for president
Are you guys crazy! Blake Young is a BEAST! So Good!

This South Florida based Artist has a Mid West flow. His delivery is great. He has recently came back to the Gospel Hip Hop scene.


86Young Joshua

87Justin Harris
Awesome rapper and loves God puts the word in his lyrics and has a dope rap style but can relate to many people

88Nick Foulks

89Richie Righteous

90Jac Rip
This guy is up and coming, he his really working hard to make a name for himself. The best part about what he does is that he not only raps it he stands on the word of God and is walking in his glory... he is worth a look-up trust me *God blessed*
This guys is walking by faith... awesome man if God!

91G Rod
Gutter Gospel, everyone else is great but this guy is off the Chain.

No one has heard of him but look up deny him by lyrycyst. He is beast
Wow, I looked up deny him, why did it take me this long to hear about him?

93Von Won

94CJ Emulous
He sounds good and teaches about god well while rapping

95Dreptul la Cuvant
Christian Rap from Romania... dope..




99Demon Slayer
