Top 10 Realest Rapperssouthie187
The Top TenXW
Do I really have to say anything?! He is still the best and has been gone, but definitely not forgotten, for almost 14 years! He was a 'Bad Boy' in more ways than one! He was so much loved, like Elvis, that no one wants him to be gone! I sure wish he was here! But his music will live forever!
He spoke from the perspective he was born and raised into. Lacked any sort of filter and therefore wasn't afraid to see things how they are and put it into words. He recognized and spoke out against the corruption within the government even calling out several specific figures. He was well aware of who was down with him and vice versa, giving all he could to those he loved. On the flip side he could see those who didn't care about him and his well being and would let that be known he felt the same. The rose that grew from the concrete.
He was the reflection of the goverment, He is the realest rapper no doubt. He waas the voice for the people who grew up in the ghetto!

He always talks about his own real-life problem. Hard for some people to admit, but compared to most rappers, he is real in the sense that he doesn't exaggerate about "bitches" that he has and all the money that he makes even though he has more than most rappers. He always raps about what he wants and not what anyone wants him to. Also hard to argue with the fact that he's sold the most albums of any other rapper.
Smart move on his part too about not bragging about money because he's the original white rapper and people could've taken that the wrong way really fast
He of course lied, but that was clear, he always told his listeners he's just playing. But when he was not playing around, he was one of the most honest rappers to ever do it! And a great one to!

Nas is the realest, on his day he would destroy Pac and any other rapper. You can't get realer then NAS. Listen to his very first LP Illmatic which is probably the best LP ever all the way to his most recent album life is good. His lyrics have always stayed real even though the game is changing direction. HIP HOP IS DEAD
Amazin, even though "N" and hip hop is dead werent what I thot theyed be still he's hard as hell. - southie187
He's just too wavy! Big inspiration
Great, but not the realestV5 Comments
Dance With The Devil goes hard. One on the realest rappers of all time, should be higher up on the list.
This dude gets real about politics, social issues and just goes off blatantly about how he feels. He don't sugar coat. Plus he intelligent as hell, poverty of philosophy, dance with the devil, caught in a hustle, the martyr, the 3rd world, the 4th branch, any of his interviews. It goes on and on
The greatest rapper of all time, Him and Dante speak the truth
One of the best in my opinion. Raps the truth and nothing but the truth.V5 Comments
He's the real G.O.A.T DMX FOR LIFE, His Word His Voice His Life His Messages EVERYTHING HE SAYS IS REAL, DOGZ FOR LIFE, RUF RYDERZZ
My opinion, should be #1 or 2 MAX. Maybe behind Nas. He lets it all out on the mic and his music is way more relatable. Pure emotion, raw passion, and true toughness that no other mc has. Drugs sorta messed him up but he uses all his struggles, anger, and experiences as inspiration for his music. His debut album was the greatest in my opinion. Only album that can give it competition is Nas' Illmatic. Definitely a true Hip Hop poet. Genius on the mic
EASY... dmx been through more than any other rapper and still keeps it real, he isn't a fake trying to act gangster, he's a gangster trying to stay true to god, as real as it gets, I'm SLIPPIN, I'm FALLIN, I can't GET UP!
"Feel the pain, feel the joy of a man who was never a boy"V12 Comments
One of the realest rapper alive. He raps about the society and stuff that happens in daily life and he's fight against his record label.
Should be number 1. He's been getting a lot bigger for the last 3 years and he deserves to gain more attention. He is the realist rapper there is. He speaks his mind and calls out all the fake rappers. He acknowledges his mistakes, and the whole music industries mistakes. He changes lives through his lyrics. He spits raw.
Hopsin talks about heavy topics and gets deep with his lyrics, has crazy wordplays and isn't always talking about getting money, smoking weed, and having sex with billions of women. He stays humble and does his own thing.
Hopsin would make a good song with EminemV16 Comments
How can your favorite songs be warning dead wrong and the 10 crack commandments, those are some of his mediocre songs, you gotta put like gimme the loot, grab my gun, everyday struggle and bleed as pretty much like everyone's favorite biggie songs
BROOKLYN this guy was ill. favorite songs-10 crack commandments, warning and dead wrong - southie187
I personally think he should be first realest let not forget who shot ya?
How is this fat in the top 5 he talk trash when pax died never responded to disses lolV6 Comments
I'm talkin bout his old stuff. the power of the dollar album was amazin. and get rich or die tryin was good 2. my favorites- lifes on the line, ghetto quoran, you ain't gangsta, peace god and the corner bodega - southie187
I love his old music. Now, he is a little too pop. But his old stuff like Power of the dollar, guess whose back, GRODT, and the massacre were all really good. His songs on all of those were unreal because he had an amazing flow to his songs which I don't think he has anymore.
Lyrically wack, and, for the last few years, just gains attention through talking trash about others. But nonetheless, he had great songs, his (workout)book formula 50 is great and inspiring, and you just can't doubt that he wasn't a real hustler!
The king of New York, the realest rapper aliveV3 Comments
J Cole has a point to prove and he's not shy about it. He is so, so personal and deep and shows such beautiful emotions in his songs which give you chills down your spine, I love it!. He comes better and better with each track. His lyrical play is as sharp as needlepoint. Its an art form! He addresses real life problems especially with black people and their struggles. He is the best rapper alive and he ain't tryin' to be be everything like some rappers nowadays.
Great rapper he speaks about real life situations that he has witnessed and emotions that re inside him and expresses it in his music. Real rapper. He gonna be a great one
The realist out there & amazing rapper. The 2nd best behind Kendrick Lamar right now. If not the best period.
Truss his sickV11 Comments
He is hands down realist rapper of this generation. Him and J. Cole he deserves higher than 15 on the list.
He will forever be the best better than Eni men as rather than constantly writing about himself he write philosophies and writes about common problems and music isn't just about the beat but the stories the lyrics tell and if you really listen to his music you will understand why he's the best and always will be his lyrics are the best out there
The absolute best, he needs to be in the top 10. Definitely the realest of this generation.
I think he is one of the best in our generation after eminem and he deserves to be higher than 10V25 Comments
One of the realist of all time should be at least top 10
Few rapper admit his emotions like this dude. Definitely needs a higher listing
Kid cudi is what he raps about, personally not my style I like my rapped thugged out and rappers who actually live that thug life they rap about but he should be higher
Speaks like no otherV2 Comments
He's the grand wizard of gangsta rap and the westcoast war lord! He never switched to pop or mainstream music! He's still rocking Chucks & Dickies like back in the day.
Real Rappers don't wear skinny jeans nor they do pop music!
Real Hip Hop Ain't Dead!

one of the best most of his songs are good I like his old stuff better though. - southie187
Hova talks about mistakes he's made and how they shape him. That's as real as you can be
He's beast the best to ever do something not better than Wayne but still he's good - ayoitsmitchellx
He shouldn't be hereV4 Comments
Lil boosie was almost charged for 5 murder cases, had two kids at a very young age, is in jail, how the hell is lil wayne in front
Boosie keep it real in ALL his songs and he's bout that life.
Every song by this artist expresses what he goes through and how he feels and he admits he's wrong and than give reasons of how his life was and why crap happens! Very real!
He is the realestV28 Comments
Game Is definitely one of the realest rappers alive, grew up in Compton with his dad being a nutty drug addict gang banging blood like the rest of his family, all he seen from birth was drug, guns, his parents going out to do drive by's, Was then put into a foster care at a young age to when he got older moved back in with his mother and attended Compton high school, when the majority of students were part crip and his fam was huge into the bloods. Watch his family and friends die after getting shot at, got a scholarship to college which then he lost due to drugs, got back into gang banging hard after that, selling drive by's etc to where he was home alone one night and shot 5 times.
He should be no.2 because he is the best and realest Rapper after Tupac he was is and will be the best rapper there is no One to replace him NO ONE 2PAC 4LIFE
He reminds me of girls beefing over Facebook and then reuniting, posting pics of their bff and all the white girls . Sorry, he ain't that bad lyrically, but too much attention seeking from his side. His raps would've been much shorter if he'd let out all the names he's dropping. He looks like a gangsta, but if he opens his mouth, he's just a little white teen girl with a 'obey' cap
The game is 5 albums in. Where's 50? If he wasn't real, he would've been caught 9 years back.V3 Comments
Clever flow, mastered punchline rap, started his own label, could spit fast, didn't have beef with anyone in the industry, although his murder limited his rap career to only 7 years. He is still one of the most talented rappers of all time. In my opinion L in his prime could have ruined anyone on the mic.
Should really be number 1, lyrically tops Pac to me at least the way he broke down words was genius his rhymes were unheard of, the kid was truly ahead of his time
He could spit and and beat anybody in a freestyle battle even biggie but ain't make a lot of great songs
Too sick of a personV2 Comments
part of the geto boys. a sick rapper. hardcore - southie187
One of the realest and also played a part in reinforcing my "moral fiber"! "Sick" wouldn't be a worthy description of his words/lyrics 2 myself thus we all have our opinions. He's just 100℅ MARVINV1 Comment
I don't even understand how in the world he is below lil Wayne on here should be at least in the top 10V2 Comments
Fastest rapper of all time. Realist too, unlike other at the top of the list.V2 Comments
Up there with tupac. If you like pac you'll like mega! Don't listen to anything else you hear, the truth is this, tupac and cormega are the 2 realest rappers of all time.
