Best New School Rappers
The Top TenXW
Every single album he drops is a classic
He is the king of the coast and New York and he is juggling them both
Mean flow, dope lyrics and breath taking delivery. He is also a great storyteler, listen to " The Art Of Peer Pressure" and "Keyshia's Song"
Kendrick is the bestV2 Comments
Most overrated rapper. Really doesn't compete with anybody in the to then let alone the top 3. Talks about drugs, money, and females. Only thing he has is beats, take that away and look at what happens. Ever heard him freestyle, has the worst freestyles ever.
When he wants to, he can compete for number 1. When he is not singing (that is)
The most versatile artist periodV2 Comments
J. Cole really gets some undeserved hate. He did a wack job on "Mr. Nice Watch" but that is arguably (but probably) the only fault in his career. He didn't drop classic albums like Kendrick did, but his albums were consistently good with some classic tracks. Not many rappers can do that kind of job these days. His beat production has always hit that line between modern trendiness with nostalgia, which is also a very hard feat. His lyrics most of the time has a nice poetic edge, which again not many rappers out there care about anymore. The fact that he is below Drake in this list is just a big shame. I would say he does a better job in reaching a wider audience, he just sacrifices a little more of his art than K. Dot. Characters like J. Cole are essential to the game, they break the prejudice that all rap is wack like the likes of Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, or too hard to decipher like K. Dot's. But people like Kendrick have difficulty reaching an audience that is radio friendly. Cole ...more - classick
I don't understand how he is below drake... J Cole is simply so much better... If you compare their lyrics, you'll see what I'm talking about...
Good flow, the BEST storyteller, great lyricist. It is almost impossible to outshine him on a track
Best lyricist, great storyteller listen to "The Cool", Good flow
Chance should definitely be among the top ten. In terms of flows he is the king, lyricism he is beast and his stories are great. I just wish he could do something to get out there moreV1 Comment
One of the best technical genius deserve more attention drake way better than him and he writes all his song by himself so don't sleep on logic people!
Has a story like Kendrick, better flow than anybody on this list, crazy lyrics. Deserves top 3 with Kendrick and J. ColeV1 Comment

Krit is the new king of the south. He should be easily top 5 on this list. Mt. Olympus is one of my favorite songs of all time.
Just listen to any song on dark sky paradise
It is so good
Master of word play - Dreamrap
He has a dope flow and he should be top 10V1 Comment
He's that one rapper were either he has amazing songs (ill mind 5-7) and has some not so great songs. His only downfall is that he's self produced. He only produces his songs on his album and to be honest, the beats just aren't that great and that's what gets people hating and calling him corny because people like drake fans click on his music expecting a thumping beat and that's not what hopsin is all about. Its about the music, not about looking cool.
Hopsin's has very good lyrics and messages in his songs he is also independent.
Love him. Should be in the top 10 at least
Strong voice he is the 2 best after Kendrick in TDE recognize good message in his song and bars dope
