83Crooked I

You haven't heard bout him? Go check him out and you'll surely put him on the first place!

Too dope and doesn't need to write, he just spits off the dome and has a strong delivery

Crooked I is the best rapper and freestylist alive check his hip hop weekly mixtapes and check his freestyles on YouTube and you'll see why he's the best freestyle and lyricist alive

84Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino is one of the most lyrical rappers in the game. His music does not appeal to many because he takes a different route. He has music that people may consider soft but once you carefully listen to it and its lyrics you will find how amazing of a lyricist he is.

Childish Gambino doesn't even need the recognition. But anyone with half a brain would give it to him. Only people on the same bracket as him are Aesop Rock, Hopsin, Ab-Soul, Nas, Eminem, and Andre 3000. That's it. Hands down.

Childish Gambino. He's a singer, actor, rapper, producer, comedian, you name it. He's the most talent rapper there is and his lyrics are so smart. There's nothing he can't do

Are you really listening though?

86Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is an American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

What the heck? Nicki Minaj is in this list? All she raps about is her ASS. No meaningful lyrics at all.

WHAT IN THE WORLD! Her lyrics are horrible. All she does is rap about her A$$, and how it's better than everybody else's. Her lyrics send no good messages to any other girl in the world. The only message she sending is " if you got a fat A$$, then put your butt in the T.V. screen and shake it until your implants fall off.

I know a lot of people hate on Nicki Minaj... but I honestly do find her rapping in "Monster" really good. She has this lyrical (not lyrics, mind you) style..she makes beats flow and she knows how to create a catchy rhythm. - ishkalafufu

88Juelz Santana

Ever since his first rap, he has come with his own form of metaphores, and punchlines like no other, and always increases his level. - skullgangjewelz

89Mac MillerMalcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller, is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

91Logic

LISTEN to Logic's album. He is an absolute rap genius and deserves to be in the top 50 rappers in terms of lyrics. His flow is completely unheard of and his albums themselves tell stories in such a unique way that its impossible to only listen to one song, and that the album is the complete set of the story.

I have no idea how he wasn't even on the list. My favorite rapper by far.

Logic is just plain one of the best

He should've been on the first page

If Cassidy had a clone, Murda Mook would be the obvious one. - skullgangjewelz

93Papoose

If you take Jay-z & Cassidy, and put them together, you get Papoose, enough said. - skullgangjewelz

94CommonLonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., better known by his stage name Common, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, film producer and poet from Chicago, Illinois.

Common is an absolute genius, and the fact that he's not in at least the top 30 rappers shows how messed up this site is...

Dude common is a rap genius. His stuff is so good I can't believe he's not in the top 20

He's a true rap genius, his lyrics are truly meaningful.

95The GameJayceon Terrell Taylor, better known by his stage name The Game, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. Game spent most of his childhood in foster care (up until high school) even though he knew all of his brothers and sisters. Since 2002, Game ...read more.

Game is on ninety fifth spot... Damn.. And Lil Wayne is at eighteenth.. Laugh out loud

Why didn't anybody put this man in the list...

Ant no telling why or how they never mention Lil Wayne on the list

96Z-Ro

My opinion the most real rapper, listen to his songs and you can feel his pain

I've never heard of this guy but I like the wordplay he uses in his name, Z-Ro, it kills me

97Tablo

He always write very beautiful lyric

98Joey Bada$$

One of the best young rappers today

Best upcoming rapper of all time

He's good but I think The Underachievers should take his place

99Joe Budden

Joe can do any style of music and shoul be in top 5, look up inception or dumb out and you will be glued to the song

This list is WACK half of these names on this rap list a tent lyricist. There's no way JOE BUDDEN SHOULD BE DOWN HERE. Rakim, Eminem, Fabulous, Big Pun, Joe Budden, Crooked I, Kendrick Lamar, Stack Bundles, AZ, E-40, Kanye, K-Rhino, Chino XL, The Clipse, Royce 5'9, Joell Ortiz, Slaughter House, Lloyd BBanks, Jay, Nas, No particular order but I have all these rappers or Lyricist before Big and Pac

This is my opinion. I don't base my list on popularity, or ALBUMS sold, or how much money, or how many albums sold. My list is based solely on skill level. (Metaphors, punchlines, wordplay, etc

100Tyler, the Creator

One of the most creative, clever, and thought provoking artists that came out in the past 5 years

Definitely better than 90 % of these rappers on the list

More creative and lyrical than 90% of the rappers here

He should 100% be the top of this list wow
