Top 10 Most Inspirational Rappers of All TimeWillWords
The Top Ten
His songs have meaning and not just a lot of random crap that rhymes and just about gang fights, girls, and drugs. He raps about his life and about other peoples lives. He puts in in words and a song.
He's just the best rapper I know and there is a mening in his songs.
His story coming into the rap world and fame inspires anyone who hears it. He grew up in the very bottom of life (like his song "rock bottom"), and made his way into being the BEST RAPPER EVER. Everyone bullied him and said he couldn't do it. Even his own mom was mean to him. His good friend/uncle Ronnie committed suicide, his best friend proof was killed, and his other uncle committed suicide. He was beaten up and put in a coma for 3 weeks. He was addicted to drugs for years. He was divorced twice. He was sued by his bully growing up, his own mother, his wife, and many other figures. He uses his scars in his songs. He is DEFINITELY the best, most inspirational rapper ever.
He has inspired me to be a good lyric writer when writing about my anger.V 118 Comments
"Here's a message to the newborns, waitin' to breathe
If you believe then you can achieve
Just look at me
Against all odds, though life is hard we carry on
Livin' in the projects, broke with no lights on
To all the seeds that follow me
Protect your essence
Born with less, but you still precious
Just smile for me now"
Pretty inspiring if you ask me.
Tupac is not Just a rapper but he is a poet, freedom fighter and he also has enough brain power to be president. Eminem is a good rapper but Tupac is just the greatest. His Music is Raw and Authentic. It tells a story and Tupac can make you laugh, cry, dance, be crazy anything. Eminem even said himself that Tupac is the Greatest and most influential artist. Honestly just listen closely to his Words. Tupac has a song that everybody can relate. Just think about it a guy that can make such a huge impact in the music industry at the age of 25 has to be the greatest. If Tupac was still alive nobody would even talk about Eminem. Tupac also suffered many hardships. He only had two pants and a sweate. But he brang himself out of this struggles. He was the only rapper who was not scared to take on the police, and illumanati. His last album was called Killumanati. All these rappers of today are sell outs. So I don't care how famous you are or how much records you sell there will never be a man ...more
You damn right PAC was the realist, just look at the titles to his songs, somebody really dick riding em, but even em gives PAC his props. Tupac lyrics are studied on a college level as a course trident to breakdown what he was saying oh he died at 25 meaning he wasn't at his peak yet
He knew how to get people to be happy even in tough situations and always reminded us about the bad things in the world and all the things he wanted to be changed and what he wanted to see eg. a black president, unfortunately he never got to see it.V 61 Comments
This guy right his is extremely inspirational Eminem even said he's one of the best. Go listen to I Can by him and One Mic and all his songs with Damian Marley.
Nas is educated he puts into his rap hence his words by default have more depth and substance. he should be number 1
He is so inspirational! I've watched two documentaries about him and his story is so powerful and emotional! How is Eminem and Lil' Wayne even inspirational!? They just make hit songs. Nas is extremely inspirational and should be #1 on this list. There are just too many Eminem fans and worshipers on this site that vote him for everything!
I agree about Lil' Wayne, in my opinion he has no talent whatsoever. But I'm a HUGE Eminem fan and he is by far the most inspirational rapper. Don't get me wrong, I love Nas too but Eminem is RAP GOD.
Nas is the most inspirational rapper of all time. - keyonpooleV 7 Comments
The stuff he says is not just cool it makes a lot of sense. If you don't find it inspirational in any way you probably sick in the head
He has a unique flow and style that many rappers don't have. His lyrics and storytelling is a major factor to why he inspires people.
Should be higher, to pimp a butterfly describes his fight against depression and finally getting out of it, and that's the most inspirational album I have ever heard. And that's saying something
This guy puts pictures on my mind with every song. Every song has meaning. Props.V 17 Comments
Best Producer of Hip-Hop's History/Strong &Lyrical Text/Excellent Voice

Not as good as Tupac but really inspirational
The absolute greatest rapper of all time. Scary to imagine how successful he'd be if he hadn't been shot.
Greatest rapper of all time.. Well in my opinion
Most inspirational rapper everV 8 Comments
"In the end, it doesn't even matter, " is one of the most famous modern song lyrics today. Songs that tell you to let it go, and to be yourself rather than the person people want you to be. He I much better than Eminem, he should be number 1. And plus, Eminem always swears even when he doesn't need to. And his voice is awful. M SHINODA FOR LIFE!
Mike is the best rapper ever along with Eminem... Should be at 2 place at least...
Mike Shinoda is better than any other rapper
Mike shinoda FOREVER - WillWords

Most of his songs are amazing but the drugs and sex ones let him doneV 2 Comments
So much symbolism in his lyrics that most people don't get it
I don't see how Jay z is inspirational
He's a bender
And I'm not homophobic
Hopsin is has always inspired me to do great things and always helps me in tough times
One of the only rappers that doesn't need drugs or alcohol to keep the day going. Speaks the truth and his flow is super consistent.
Hopsin is one of the best rappers out there, listen to his music its definitely worth it. he keeps it real
Don't know how he got here but I like itV 21 Comments
Best lyrics, deepest meaning, strongest beats... That concludes Sagopa Kajmer is the best rapper in Turkey and maybe in the whole world!
I heard a song of his I 50% liked it 1 half it had good beat to it other half I can't understand it
He will touch you with his text. Simple but deep.
Sagopa kajmer is the best rapper in the woldV 3 Comments
The more songs he releases the worse rap is
The longer he raps the worse it gets
This is guy is legendary.. so damn inspirational, deserves to be in TOP 5 - WillWordsV 5 Comments
Isn't inspirational at all, he didn't start from the bottom whatsoever, he cannot relate to what rappers growing up in Compton and New York City were surrounded by whatsoever.
How's he an inspiration? He keeps saying that he struggled growing up in the hood even though he's never been in the hood. He's from Canada! There are no actual criminals in Canada most of the time.
Funny that drake rhymes with fake. Hidden message? Hell no we already knew he was a fake.
He is inspirational in a different way. RefreshingV 11 Comments
50 Cent was a true gangster who was shot 9 times and lived, and he got out of the ghetto. His songs aren't all about money and sex most of them have some real meaning.
50 cent is cool and all but I really like Tupac. Tupac was I think is the best rappers of all time and isn't that why he's the prince of rap? Tupac was just like 50 cent... Pac grew up in the ghetto and had a mom affiliated with something that involves crime. 50 cents mom did drug dealing and Tupacs mom was in the black panther group. Again they were gangsta rappers inspirational and alike. So 50 cent is a sort of reincarnation of Tupac
50 cent is one of the greatest rappers of all time, even thought he shot at like 9 times.
He's definitely one of the biggest rap icons, and for good reasons, but inspiration ain't oneV 7 Comments
Ryu (Styles Of Beyond) (Fort Minor) (Demigodz) this guy is honestly one of the best, he brings in a new flow, and he makes it better, he inspiees in a intellectual sense
Lyrical with amazing rhythm, He's lyrics actually means something, not just about money, drugs and girls. Very underrated.V 1 Comment
I know that technique isn't for everyone.. his style is more of a political stand view rapping about the government and how we are tricked to think that it Is a picture perfect gov and all others suck, but in reality it is one of the most corrupt plutocracy taking advantage of third world countries. And technique sees through that and demolish them in his killer rhymes. Enough said
Shows real initiative to teach and draw awareness to the injustice cause by greedy governments. Raps about things going on in the world, not just about materialistic views that are being produced in today's music
Hardcore old political rap... Sick beats and killer lyrics that send chills down a spine
Just listen to Dance with the devilV 2 Comments
He is one of the few inspirational rappersV 2 Comments
