Best Rappers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 4
How is Wayne 3rd? That alone makes the list a joke, not counting 50 Cent. Otherwise, the list is pretty decent (not really). Vote for real hip hop.
The most keeping it realest rapper alive. But don't forget Mos definitely as well. But all the people here are voting for the commercial rappers instead of the rappers that are doing it not only for the paper!
Through talib's music I've found that there's ways to face life and that I do have a lot to look forward too in life as a father a man and how too enjoy good music
Blackstar is legendary...him and mos are such a great duo. Even on by himself, he can hold his own and is so lyrically talented. I can't believe he's at 68 - AiJV 18 Comments
he was killed right before he was gonna blow up... he would of been much more famous by now - eatmaxeat
What 106 he should be 1st he was part of d12 and should of lived, would be so famous by now but he's not the only person that remember him is eminem with his tributes 'your never over' d12 split up because he died so he was oblivious a big loss
"Searching For Jerry Garcia" is a great album! If he was still alive, he would be in top 30... R.I.P. Proof!
He needs to be in top 5. That's messed upV 20 Comments
He takes the worst traits from Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. The only difference is that he lacks Wayne's charisma, Drake's wit, and Nicki's personality. - WonkeyDude98
He has really good hits, he tries hard, he works hard for what he does. He should be in the top ten. Even though he may steal songs he puts his own spin on it to make it better than the original.
Tyga is the greatest he should be in at least the top ten
Tyga is a very good rapper but when it comes to social life he is horrible he makes himself look stupid don't cross the line of social life to business life he is great thoughV 82 Comments
His lyrics are amazing, make sense - bringbackrealhiphop
Common Wrote argueably the greatest song in the history of hip hop.
I know all you rap newbies don't listen to a songs lyrics but try listening to "I used to Love H.E.R." - godzillaman
This guy is easily top 10 over 50 cent, lloyd Banks and that sucky Lil Wayne! - rdubz34
Another great rapper too far down the list. Come on.V 36 Comments
Yo.. All I can say is... That this rapper has guts. He might not be the best rapper... But he is the best Christian rapper ever. He was nominated for the Grammy Awards. In the future, he will be the best rapper of all time... Maybe better than Eminem.
One of the best because his music is directed at praising and making others aware of God, his Son Jesus and God's glory. Not only that, it's very good both melodically and lyrically.
best rapper beside eminem help me get him to #2 best part about it is he is a christian check out his best sons called God is enough and children of the light awesome rapper I am his biggest fan - isaac99
I am a Christian and I love him because he doesn't sweater and I love his lyrics and the song fear is amazingV 68 Comments
The most successful out of all the Wu Tang members, Ghostface spits fire. Throughout his whole career most of his albums have been given consistent praise amongst critics and listeners, despite his album Ghostdini bringing out a side of Ghostface in which his fans weren't expecting. However, besides this stumble Ghostface has given the world Supreme Clientele, Fishscale, More Fish, Apollo Kids and The Pretty Toney Album, plus his contributions to the greatest rap group ever, The Wu-Tang Clan (which is another completely different list). Ghostface Killah, has been in the rap game for a long time now, but shows no signs in slowing down, giving him a champion status in hip hop. - MickyG94
Man, how is this dude down at 81. He's top 20 AT LEAST... but I'd have a hard time leaving him out of top ten. - jimmyshoe85
A great artist that paint vivid pictures. You just have to understand the slang. That is what captivates you and you keep the record playing over and over until you get the slang. One of the most overlooked rapper of all time
should definitely be in the top 20, best member of the Wu-Tang Clan and that's saying something - robertoantonioortuso
So Mac Miller is better than Ghost? Are people stupid, simple, or slow? - AiJV 20 Comments
Are you serious he should be in the at the top WU TANG forever
He is a genius. Great rapper who is way more talented then he is given credit for.
Delete this Best of rappers thing your opinions is terrible
Just listen Black Out, that's the top. Remember WU TANG, greetings from France a Rap / Hip-hop Nation.V 9 Comments
The greatest battle rapper ever! At the very least is top 30. How many mcs can say they destroyed a legend in a battle
The Lyrical king, by far! Few other rappers got lyrics like this guy.
Has more content in one of his albums than most of these rappers, including eminem, in their career portfolio! check out the lyricism of the most quotable and bar monster rapper of all time! Before you start talking, check out albums C of tranquility, Rip the jacker, For whom the beat tolls...
Canibus best freestyler fast, educated and his fame was wiped out by a single rap battle when he broke his arm. Canibus is a legend better than Wayne and Manaj. I think 0.1% is a disgrace to voting for the best rappers. Canibus doesn't aim to say " I made it to the top 100 rappers" his goal is to be a competitive number 1 rapper.V 9 Comments
He is the one and only mutlitalented rapper ever...! He raps smartly his lyrics is awesome and apart from rapping he is Musician, singer-songwriter, lyricist, composer, vocalist, guitarist, pianist, producer, graphic designer, visual artist. He can play- guitar, keyboard, piano, samples, organ, percussion. That's truly awesome he is the perfect entertainment package.. In short he is "ONE MAN ARMY". /
Mike is so versatile! He has a very clear voice you get the lyrics on first listen itself. He does not rap about women money and parties. Writes meaningful lyrics. Mike and Linkin Park!
He is the best rapper ever. He should come at number 1. I am very disappointed he is in 11
Listen "Fort Minor" and you will understand why I vote... -.-V 502 Comments
WoW, WE LOVE YOU MASTER JOINT
HE IS THE KILLER OF ALL CHAGHALS, HA HA
We love you you are the master joint
Best rime in rap. he is master of joint
He is better than this rate surly:/V 171 Comments
His raps and freestyles are amazing. But he is so against the system he doesn't fit the pretense for a rapper, listening to classical jazz for inspiration for his songs about the odd (Stalking, murder and necrophilia to name a few), this man sees the world through different eyes. His rise to fame only documents that he evokes an unspoken part of us, a visionary to the dark and untouched part of our souls.
Tyler has some of the most original and creative ideas out there, not only the hip-hop scene but in all of music in general. I mean how many artists have full albums with underlying story lines, and not only that; have story lines that cross into other albums that make trilogies (perhaps, the story line theory is a bit of an argument in itself, but nonetheless definitely exists to some degree)? Lets also not forget what makes a good rapper; a rapper that can break the color barrier and start a cult following with a young fan base with no particular aimed demographic. His music is great too, lets not forget Tyler, like other OF members, is behind all the mixing and producing in all of his albums, which shows he's a talented musician talented on and off the mic. Definitely a well rounded artist, he's even evolving as an artist as we can see in his album 'Cherry Bomb', with his more alternative to hip-hop influences such as jazz coming through. No matter how much I say about Tyler, the ...more - Graham
Tyler's lyrics and flow are strange and different than every other rapper out there, but it seems to work for him. He is not afraid to push boundaries or speak his mind which is what makes him so cool and interesting. He deserves to be much farther up on the list.
This I agree with, Tyler the creator was a hype train and deserves to be this low down.V 46 Comments
Twista is the fastest just cause yall heard one song listen to all of twists so twista is first busta rhymes is second
Why come Twista belong to # 66, he supposed to be belong at least at Top 5.
68 that's sad... Should be top 10 for sure some of these rappers don't hold a candle next to twista - craig18s
Damn he is a non factor on this list show we don't know real rap this list is insulting - roadrageV 15 Comments
The fact that Black Thought is this low on a top rappers list has got to be the most out of control logic I have ever been exposed to. Whoever made this list should go back to listening to Country music.
Plus, Eminem is a great rapper but he is not number 1.
this list is bullcrap how the hell is lil wayne in the top 10 and black thought of the roots isn't even on the damn list. Black Thought of The Roots is definitely one of the best of all time -
Black Thought is probably one of the most underrated rappers EVER. The album Illadelph Halflife is a masterpiece. In my opinion, Black Thought is better than Jay Z, Dr Dre, Eminem and Lil Wayne by FAR.
I actually like the roots a lot better than some groups that people consider "better" like cypress hill. Philly has a comparative shortage of rappers, but the Roots are certainly a group to be proud of.V 14 Comments
MGK'S JUST AWESOME DUDES.. HE'S JUST A blast.. You may listen samples like INVINCIBLE... Where that's an awesome rapper dudes.. Must be below 5.. He's just fanta fabulous
I honestly have no idea why he is nowhere on this list. Machine Gun Kelly is the best Artist in my mind. Lyrics are deep and meaningful. Besides Wild Boy, which is what most people only know him as. Listen to his other songs and you will see what I'm talking about. Amazing flow and very audible pronunciation. Very fan based and cares about his fans more than himself.
Great flow fast and a great style. Should hook up with dre and slim and he'll become one of the best. Invincible/Wild boy/Chip of the block/Breaking news and see my tears are great this guy should at least be in the top 20. Oh and he's way better than most of those guys.
Just look up alpha omega or wild boy to be pumped. or lace up, and what I do.V 92 Comments
'Supa Dupa' has the best rhymes I've heard in a long time. Big Sean for the win!
He might be a new mc in the game but he speaks from his heart and in every song he makes you can feel the technical genius that he uses to rap his feeling into a rap in other words a California roll
I love big Sean and the fact that he isn't afraid or embarrassed to cry infront of his fans and friend and others makes him a real man. He always keeps his city and his family on his shoulders and he always mentions his mom and grandma and how much he loves them and his city, he's true and real and great person and he's an amazing rapper and I love him so much
He is awesome love how many times song and listen to beware that's the stufV 67 Comments
Way better than Lil Wayne or 50 Cent. Should be in top ten, he makes his own beats, lyrics are dope, AND he can sing.
Newer to the game but steps up and shows he can hang with the greatest.
Total bad ass= donald glover. Amazing punchlines and an incredible flow for such an up in coming artist
Actor? Check. Comedian? Check. Rapper? Double check. This guy is one of the great talents in Hollywood. Everything he says in his raps feel so personal and real that you can't help but listen to the whole album just to see what it's all about. Though his latest album (Redbone) was a bit of a letdown, the ones that preceded it (Camp, Because The Internet, Kauai) are among some of the best rap albums I've ever heard. Not to mention his song, 3005, has been my favorite song for some time and I don't see that changing anytime soon.V 76 Comments
I'm not voting for Chuck D because he is the best rapper ever, personally, I think Eminem is, but there is NO WAY Chuck D and LL Cool J should be this far down. Chuck D led Public Enemy. Hello? Fear of a Black Planet? One of the best Rap albums of all time. He deserves too be much higher on this list just for making "Fight the Power" -- that song has to be in every real rap fan's top 5 of all-time.
A rapper with a social conscience, one whose lyrics were actually intelligent
This is sad that Chuck D is this far down the list. I respect others opinions, so I can tolerate him not being number one, but no one can tell me he is not in the top ten of all time. My personal fave for one main reason. His approach to rapping makes me feel like I'm reading a book. He is a story teller and def the best storyteller of the rappers. Plus, most of the rappers above in this list would not exist in the form they do if it were not for Chuck D. My other favorites include Tupac, second closest thing to reading a book. For smooth and original I would choose Eminem. For rhyming ability and flow, And machine gun delivery, Kraysie Bone.
Please, Chuck D has to be top 5. Guess these voters are too young to have heard and appreciated his immense talent.V 21 Comments
Whoever made this list needs to be shot in the face. Jada Styles are top 5.
Top 5 easily. Think about "We are the streets. " Great flow, lyrics.
The most lyrical and the best to ride a beat
No foreign rapper from Turkey, Iran, Pakistan or any of those countries should be higher than kiss. This guy was very talented. Kiss the game goodbye...need I say more?V 15 Comments
6 in the mornin' is a genre-defining track, I can't believe that Ice-T hasn't even made the top 50 here! These rankings are weighted way too heavily towards recent rappers.
The song "Cop Killer" is what earns Ice-T his spot on this list. Only NWA's "F*** the Police" has encountered as much controversy from law enforcement (can't imagine why) with one song. A couple of other things that help him out are his smokin' hot wife CoCo, and his legendary track 6 in the Mornin. - GangstaReppinDaCPT
Ice-T is a pioneer of not just Gangsta Rap, but all of Hip Hop. - copkiller
Ice T is incredible... him and N.W.A. Started gangsta rap. Its insulting to such a pioneer to be so low in this list!V 5 Comments
