Top 10 Most Inspirational Rappers of All TimeWillWords
The Contenders: Page 2
Honestly Common should be much higher than this - 9713524179
Let's look at this list for a second Eminem fanboys. What is the title? Now I know a majority of you haven't heard of Cole or his story, but when you hear the word inspirational, Jermaine Cole beats everyone on here by a mile. He is the definitive every man. Even if his songs which alone should propel him to top ten on this list aren't enough to convince you, his story should crow him number one every time. Grew up in a rough neighborhood with an abusive father and a drug addicted but caring mother. Went to college for a degree but became poor due to student loans, moved to NYC waiting outside of Jay Z's studio for an entire year to hand him his mixtape, gets signed to Roc Nation, becomes a big success and is now one of the greatest rappers of the new generation. If that doesn't make you feel like you can do anything you put your mind to than I think you suffer from some sort of disorder, and because why not DOUBLE PLATIINUUUM WITOUTTT NO FEATUURREZ!
How is J Cole not top 10? Or at least top 15. One of the most inspirational rappers of our generation, if not all time. This list appears to be very random
No clue why j Cole isn't at least top 15, has more meaning in his songs then most rappers above him
How is he not in the top 10? Cole is one of the,if not the, most inspirational rappers of "All time".V 6 Comments
He literally came from the bottom and truly against all odds held his own as an incredibly unique artist who's been through hell and back. And through all his fame and good fortune he's nowhere near jaded and is, at least in my book, a potential contender for one of the best lyricists alive. A lot of his songs really hit home to me and I genuinely appreciate him. Kells.
Probably the best for he made fight depression while I was down his songs 'Her song' and " See my Tears' are just breathtakingly awesome.
What makes me adore him more is that he's still young but his song way more inspiring than any other rapper that are older than him
Machine gun kelly is the reason I live and breathe, his music keeps me goingV 6 Comments
He stopped a man from committing suicide. How is that not inspirational?
T.I is THE icon of inspirational rap
Yes he did stop that but you know what else... HE didn't STOP TYGA FROM BEING A PEDO!
And no other rapper or even person on Earth stopped him, so you really can't count that against him. - KUZGUN
I'll admit, I don't really like rap anyway, but LeCrae's messages are better than anyone else above him here. His lyrics are often directly inspired or taken from scriptures- usually inspirational scriptures.
Christian rapper, amazing. He raps about his faith and what he believes in. Not only that, he also talks about life
Man Lecrae speak God's truth in his lyrics.. His words mean so much how he testifies his life and his relationship with God in his lyrics.. he is definitely my favourite rapper ever..
Lil Wayne ain't inspiring in any way all he talks about is women and drugs and being "gangsta". If you ask me he is the tounechi
This is ridiculous. How is lil Wayne even remotely inspirational? Well, I guess if you call a total idiot who makes terrible songs and still makes millions inspirational, then I agree.
It's inspiration a guy can flunk school, sound like that... and have no knowledge of vocabulary and still make millions. That's magic
Little Wayne is inspirational?!?! HahaV 9 Comments
Tech N9ne is amazing as a person & out of this world on the mic! He works so hard & it shows in his music. He is able to write about his true feelings & his thoughts down knowning people will go to his music because its real & he is my inspiration for writing poems expressing myself. Tech N9ne will always be an inspiration to me & I will be proud to say I will always be a loyal fan of the snake and bat till I am dead in the ground & even when I'm dead ill still be a loyal fan!
Most creative, unorthodox rapper out there. Tech N9ne is himself throughout every song and does not let ridicule affect his music.
One of the most underrated rappers of all time! He isn't just dope, real and underground, he shows extreme technical skill. He tackles similar themes to Biggie's and even went to collaborate with Eminem in a mind blowing track "Speedom" ( Judging by technical areas and not speed like most do )
26? what?! top 10 all timeV 2 Comments
One of the fathers of rap. Shoulb be in top 10 along with kendrick lamar.
Kanye west is one of the most overlooked rappers out there. He always had good music and every album he has is good, unlike other rappers that make bad music over time. He doesn't rap about drugs or violence like the other rappers at the time but he taught us that we can be different and to not care what others say about your decisions. This is something I live by!, and more people should do the same. Kanye west is definitely in my top three Artists, not just rappers, for being different. He IS an influential artist. He is somebody you can listen to with your kids and teach them something while they sing the lyrics.
Should be #1, way above Dr Dre who has no rapping or producing talent. He has ghost helpers for everything.V 1 Comment
He is an awesome rapper in Bollywood. His voice is very perfect for rap. He is so famous of modern stage of Bollywood and teenagers heart as well.
He is a person who has shaked the whole Punab and India by his awesome tracks such as Brown Rang, Dobe Shope, Blue Eyes, Party All Night etc. His song Brown Rang has chart the tops of most viewed Youtube video in India in 2012. He was very poor when he was child and gained popularity due to his Hard Work.V 2 Comments
He an inspiration, not the best rapper but inspiring
The Game deserves a spot in the top 20.
The game a true survivour coming from the streets of compton to sloughtering 50 cent, tony yayo, buck and loydd. Lyrically and physically he is a 100% hood telling stories from the hood that are easy to relate to, how he grew up, betrayal, his familly, his life experiences and his pain. Hate it or love the game is one of the greatest gangster rapper since big n pac he is the last of a true dieng breed the last of the gangster rappers.
What inspirational about Birdman? Don't make me laugh

Why the hell is is honey Singh above him?
Honey Singh ain't a rapper, people laugh at his rap
How is Little Wayne up there but not Macklemore honestly macklemore has instant classics like otherside, same love, can't hold us, white walls
How in god's name is macklemore less inspirational than Lil Wayne, will.I. am and nicki minaj?
Same love, otherside, his music has helped me a lot with things
I don't even like Macklemore but he is obviously more inspirational than Lil wayne.V 7 Comments
