Top 10 Worst Rappers of All-time

The Top TenXW

1Lil WayneDwayne Michael Carter, Jr., also known professionally as Lil Wayne, is an American rapper. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age . He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career . He's often criticized for constantly talking about money, girls, and more.

His voice is so annoying and he's ugly, why is eminem even on here

Never say Lil Wayne has a very nice to me he his the best rapper so far

Wayne used to be good. Now he rappin about the same stuff in all his songs

The only reason he is number 4 on this web site is that some kids haven't listened to jay z nas 2pac and biggie

Lil Wayne haters are tasteless

2Soulja Boy Tell EmDeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

Soulja Boy SUCKS! Its not even rap! Lil wayne is also bad but the difference is lil wayne really raps, soulja boy speaks

He repeats the same damn line over and over again. He's pure garbage. - MKBeast

I'm pretty sure to be a good rapper, you have to know the English language, and Soulja Boy doesn't really have a firm grasp of his native tongue. And his beats suck. - louderthandrew

I don't know about or like rap but he's just so awful

Bad bad bad Lil Wayne is good this guy is the definition of BAD

3Nicki 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. more.

She is only popular because she is hot. Why the @%#$ is eminem on here?

Whole this fake rappers from Young Money should be on this list. What is Eminem doing here?

Man, I can't stand ymcmb... An 8 year old could write better lyrics than nicki minaj... Who just happens to be famous for being in ymcmb and having a ridiculously HUGE and FAKE a$$!

I wanna see an 8-year-old write something that could lyrically touch her "Monster" verse. - KUZGUN

Her lyrics are awful. Her voice is annoying. Enough said

42 ChainzTauheed Epps, als o known as 2 Chainz, is an American rapper. He is more popular when contributing guest verses to people like Kanye West, B .o. B, and Lil Wayne . His latest album, ColleGrove, came out earlier this year .

Let someone who's never heard of him a sheet of his lyrics and ask them how much they would pay to sign him, and they would laugh at you and walk away.

Why is 2 Chainz not number one? It's b/c, in the world today, people think that every rapper is seriously talented and it's just sad what kind of rap songs are put on the radio. 2 Chainz' music ain't even rap, it ain't even hip hop. His music is pop and I dare anyone to say otherwise. Nas was right. Hip hop is dead and every time I hear 2 Chainz "rap", it just confirms my words. - bishop.moore07

This guy is the worst rapper ever! He makes such rude songs even worse than Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne at least doesn't write such rude songs even though they have bad stuff in it but not offensive. Worse than nicki minaj also. This guy makes nicki minaj look like the best rapper ever to exist. She makes cool songs sometimes annoying but sometimes has meaningful and interesting songs. This guy all he does is write rude and gross songs

He's a bad good rapper

He isn't rapper just a pop artist who thinks he is a rapper. He writes bad, pointless lyrics, and he only talks about money and partying

He has an annoying south American accent and sings half Portugese, half English. Learn to rap mate. - oboy

Pitbull sounds horrible, trying to cover it up with bad words. He makes up the worst lyrics to a song and sounds nothing like he's rapping. More like some auto-tuned guy who is talking to us real fast, and his accent makes him sound almost impossible to understand. All he talks about is how rich he is and how many parties he attends and how many "chicos" he can attract. He's also pretty ugly (How old is he?! He's like, 56, or something, and he talks about dating 23-year-old people.) and knows nothing about real music. Heck, I don't even think rapping counts as music. His beats are terrible, but I have to admit that the melody and the harmonies are usually quite nice, but his voice ruins it and is never on beat and has a horrible rhythm. Finally, I still can't quite grasp why he's popular. He's a bad rapper, and the only reason he's famous is because of the songs he's done with other celebrities. Listen to some real music, people! Like Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Adam Levine, anything ...more

What happens when ecstasy regains popularity.

6Vanilla IceRobert Matthew Van Winkle, known by his stage name, Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor and television host.

He can't rap. Ice ice baby is now just a song people imitate and laugh at

Just a 1 hit wonder who thinks he's better than MGK and eminem put together for some reason

He used to make a good one hit wonder, now he's a sellout. He tries to be horrorcore and sound like Mike Shinoda even though he influenced him but his sellout stuff is indescribably bad.

Vanilla Ice can't rap

He just stinks no one wants to listen to a kid who changes the lyrics to your favorite songs. He tries to act black but he's just a rich 10 year old

This kid is a disgrace to rap he is just a little rich kid who gets all of his managers and his parents to write the lyrics to his song but the lyrics are not even good he has very bad flow his voice is autotuned. Even Lil Wayne, rick ross, soulja boy, pitbull, drake, gucci mane, waka flocka flame, birdman, nicki minaj are better than him

This kid is only famous for 2 reasons. 1. He's rich 2. 10 year old girls/ creepy moms love him. He just screws up your favorite songs. Like a rapping kidz bop!

When he made a remix to juicy I felt like getting a group of people to jump and break his equipment and tell him next time you pull that kidz bop bull on anymore songs I'm gonna lock you in your closet

8Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

He wouldn't last one minute in a gang war

Drake is the most fake in the game. Not only does he make up about how his life was "so horrible" and that he he thinks that's he's all mean and gangsta , but I think he actually believes it. The biggest problem I have with Drake is "All Me". He claims that made it to the top of the rap game all by himself, with literally no help whatsoever. What? Drake was on Degrassi, one of the most popular teen shows of that generation. Also he was never under any circumstances "poor". Drake grew up lower middle class at worst. And even if he grew up in a ghetto, (and no offense to canadians) he has no idea what Canadian ghettos are like compared to American ghettos. Drake was never at "the bottom" but a longshot. Yeah Drake, you had absolutely the worst life of all rappers. You should be compared to Eminem. And by the way, that was sarcasm.

The Guy Who Wrote This Comment Is 100% Right. DRAKE SUCKS HARD - 12cc

Drake has to be the wackest 'pop artist' of all time. I cannot consider him as a rapper because of his use of recycled or cliched lyrics. He tries to act so hard but he is too overly sensitive and claims that anyone that doesn't like him is a hater. No I don't hate him, I just feel that his music was made for 15 year old girls that don't have any taste in music. I hope that people forget about this loser so he could end up on dancing with the stars like the rest of the washouts.

Drake is a good artist. - jack2244

He is the worst because he says the same thing over and over again in every song. He is also so very slow at it, I can't even stand to listen to any of his songs.

I don't even think Birdman reads what he writes down. Plus his verses are all product placement for expensive he bought.

A complete joke. Never has said or done anything that should matter in rap. No flow, lyrics or charisma. Father of idiot rap. Helped found the image rapper. Just dress an act a certain way an mumble some bull over a beat.

Lil Wayne's so called daddy according to Lil Wayne and Birdman himself

10Waka Flocka FlameJuaquin James Malphurs, better known by his stage name Waka Flocka Flame or simply Waka Flocka, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.

He sucks. He has no talent at all.

There are so many rappers that are just too terrible to listen to: Drake, 2 Chainz, Soulja Boy, Vanilla Ice, Birdman; the list goes on and on...

But Waka Flocka Flame truly is the worst rapper on the planet. No one even comes close to how terrible he is. Horrible flow, trashy voice, and stupid lyrics.

Most of his "rapping" is just him yelling random and saying his name over and over again. He says his own name so much that you'd think he's slow and had to keep saying it or he'll forget it.

Liam buxton wants him

11Iggy AzaleaAmethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, songwriter, and model.

She is just the worst most annoying rapper ever I never new there was a rapper worse then Nicki but there it is

This girl can't rap. Her voice is SO annoying! Girls can't rap, but she's a WHITE girl! Eminem is the only successful white rapper. This girl just repeats what she hears black dudes say in their rap songs, which the genre is from their perspective. Iggy, you are from Australia, not from the hood, do something else for a career!

Her rapping is not rapping. She is a rap wannabe who wont be remembered in ten years. She just sucks, simple.

What bull. Cultural appropriation at its peak. A bull artist who claims that because she moved to a southern city she raps that way. It's an offensive joke packaged in a plastic fantasy of crap. She's terrible and shouldn't be considered a rapper

12Lil BBrandon Christopher McCartney, professionally known as Lil B and often known as The BasedGod, is an American rapper, record producer, author, activist and motivational speaker from Berkeley, California.

He doesn't even really rap, he just talks & it's always about stupid stuff. He basicly the same thing every time.

He should be at least Top 5. He is trash.

His lyrics seem like they were written by a 4th-grader. He never makes any sense, has terrible nonsense metaphors, and frankly comes off as mentally challenged. He could possibly be the worst rapper of all time, even worse than Souljah Boy.

Horrible babyish lyrics

13Chief KeefKeith Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

Easily the WORST Rapper currently active.

Laugh out loud. Some of this list is just a joke. According to this list Chief Keef is better the Nas. Illmatic is literally the best rap album ever made, Finally Rich shouldn't even count as music.

People, who listen to his music is drunk-ass idiots and he's 17-18 years old. NO LESS!

Horrible chant music for idiots that don't want to do anything good in life. No skill at all.

15Wiz KhalifaCameron Jibril Thomaz, better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper, songwriter, and actor.

Wiz khalifa is not bad so all you people shut it

Listen to him when you aren't high then and you'll realize he's awful. - JackMM

Haha I'm dying laughing at you guys. Really? If he's not bad I should smoke some pot and write down the first 20 words that come into my head and autotune it. If that means people think I'm good, then I'm in!

Here's one thing that really, and I mean REALLY baffles my mind. When people say "ughh! Rap Music sucks! It's all nothing but drugs, money, sex, and getting high on weed! ", but yet they turn around and they say that Wiz Khalifa's awesome? HOW?! He can't even freestyle. And that's all he talks about all the time. He talks about money, drugs, sex, getting high on weed, talking about how stoned he is, man I don't wanna listen to that . Get that out of here.

Come on Fast and Furious, He did the Song For Vin and Paul

16Chris BrownChristopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in more.

Only good beat he ever laid was on Rihanna.

"And she accidentally slip and fall on my dick. Oops I said on my dick. I didn't really mean to say on my dick. But since we talking' about my dick, all of you haters say hi to it."

Those are actual lyrics that he wrote.

Seriously? That's sounds like something Nicki Minaj would say if she was a guy - mysterious

He is not a rapper at all and a pathetic singer

Not a rapper. Just an ass who sings fast ever now and then. A horrible person to top it all off

17Gucci Mane

That fool made the few worst rap songs in hip hop history in 2010-2013

He not having coming up something different in his music, because all he talks about cars, woman, clothes and especially get wasted

It's hilarious when people like him diss the biggest rappers of all time. Many people dissed Eminem and the only one that drew attention was Ja Rule who should be at least top 10 on this list.

No words to say music is dead hip hop is embarrassed

You know you have a rapper with a cluttered mind if he is named after a clothing line and has an ice cream tattoo on their face.

18TygaTyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

Just another worthless lil wayne copy with no uniqueness he just follows in the mainstream flow of things he probably doesn't even write his own raps

One of the worst "rappers" in the industry, I hate this guy so much, he raps about the same stuff in every song! Money drugs sex, like you seriously cannot rap about anything else?! A HUGE DISGRACE TO RAP, and only famous because of lil Wayne, another stupid rapper. And absolutely ZERO LYRICAL TALENT, and always doing that same stupid sound at the beginning of every song! That stupid" hach' he sounds like he's choking on something and trying to hack it up, HOW COULD ANYONE LISTEN TO THIS GUY HE HAS NO TALENT AND RAPS ABOUT THE DUMBEST STUFF, and why the heck is Eminem on this list he's the best rapper alive!

Yeah but tyga has a good flow and could kill the beat so he shouldn't be on this list

He is 26 and dating 19 year old Kylie Jenner lol

If he's so "rich", WHY CAN'T HE FIX HIS damn DENTAL ISSUES? Jesus, this guy is ugly!

He's only made two songs. That's how much he sucks.

Another turd for music and American culture. Why are so many rappers from the South on this list? Oh yeah, because they have been ruining rap/hip-hop systematically since the turn of the century.

Just a lil thick is legit good rest is crap though
