Best Rappers of 2015Fan_of_Good_Music
The Top Ten
Kendrick is so lyrically gifted he raps about what is making this world infected clashing with religion politics and inequality between women and races he thinks on such a sociological level its almost scary and his lyrics really hit the heart especially if you can relate to him kendrick usually talks to blacks in his raps making us realise we are magnificent and he's not scared to express this
You dudes are forgetting, Best rapper of 2015. "2015"
Eminem didn't even make any songs this year and your already topping him like god damn stop being an extreme fanboy, this site is way to one-sided to Eminem lol.
Kendrick definitely wins lol.
Kendrick Lamar is such a poetic rapper..."To Pimp A Butterfly" is arguably the most well-constructed rap album of the decade. - EmperorAguila
He's lyrically insane and extremely gifted. He saved 2015 from being the year of Bleach. He's incredible at storytelling and he can match up to Eminem's lyrical ability and I like how his lyrics nudge our hearts and affect us in a way.
Also, To Pimp A Butterfly is pretty much the best album of the decade. 11/10 - AlphaQ
Favorite Rapper great flow with Slim Shady his alter ego when he's dealing with all of stuff while having a fun attitude Marshall Mathers Eminem is more of a serious while also funny attitude with more dope songs and more grown up.
He is an amazing songwriter and actor as he has played in his film 8 mile and his songs are just as good maybe even better than any other rapper out there
I'm a Stan and your not good enough Eminem fans if you don't know what a Stan it I have been with em since the start from watching him at underground battles till now he don't know me but I know everything about Marshall his age how many grammys he's won blood type height shoe size everything don't every doubt him or I will kill you
Awesome but barely made any in 2015. Also he's been gone for 3 years and really needs to come back. - AlphaQV 79 Comments
J COLE is a god. His music takes a little while to like, but if just sit down and listen to it, you'll realize it's amazing
J. Cole is and should be the number 2 greatest rapper behind Kendrick Lamar who should be number 1
J cole is amazing not only does lyrical content his beats are on point. I look up to J cole as a role model and all of that if I gotta say his latest album did amazing 2014 forrest hills. His top songs of all time are "workout", "no role modelz" and "she knows"
What makes J Cole special is his storytelling. Like Kendrick Lamar, he's one of those rappers with a great lyrical ability and flow. He's the most underrated artist ever and deserves some respect. 9/10 - AlphaQV 26 Comments
You're crazy if you don't think Drake is the man. Every project since 2010 has gone platinum (solo), he (along with Kendrick won't discredit) released one of the most important albums in the last 10 years. He can adopt multiple flows, he is an above average lyricist and has a lot of technical skill. If you seriously doubt his rapping skills listen to 5 AM in Toronto from 2 years ago. Then come back and let me know how you feel.
Horrible, overrated "rapper."
He makes good music and lyrics mostly about his life which is honesty
Uh, Drake's great but 2015 wasn't his best year for sure. - AlphaQV 34 Comments
He is a rapper that is married to Beyoncé and I wonder if he has children and I think of you as is a good rapper almost but I never heard your music before and before when you did songs in the 2010s try to think of if Notorious B.I.G. was still alive what songs would you do with them end how many and jay you should play a popular new song with drake.
Jay Z is overrated but incrediblE. Also I don't know if he did anything in 2015. The last time he was active was in 2013 like Eminem was. - AlphaQ
Jay Z has been musically MIA since 2014, I don't know what you're talking about - KUZGUN
Did he even do anything this year? - ProPandaV 11 Comments
Joey badass Is hands down better than drake
Joey Bada$$ is dope! He should be up there more
Has launched one of the best rap albums in 2015 "B4DA$$ better than drake and all the other thrash rappers
There is no equal to the amount of swagger that this dude has. He is a super hardcore rapper who is into all of the nerdy stuff like Rubiks Cubes, Star Wars, Halo, the list goes on forever. He honestly does not care about what people think about him and his lyrics are illuminating in every sense of the world. Like Star Wars there is a Dark and Light side to Logic when you hear his rapping. He is a man that wants to shine light on the Hip-Hop world while also confronting some of the dark moments of his past. If you don't think that The Incredible True Story is spectacular then you honestly don't know true Hip-Hop/Rap at all frankly. He is among lyricists such as Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Nas, and more. The coolest thing is, he hasn't even peaked yet.
He is a lyrical mastermind. Don't even know why people praise people like Eminem, Logic is the real Rap God. enough said.
Lyricism is not on a level of some like kendrick but his flow is one of the best I've heard. He's also pretty good at story telling.
Do yo chain hang low? - AlphaQV 24 Comments
He actually made a stunning comeback! Compton is a masterpiece although it's not as good as Straight Outta Compton. Also what makes him a lot better than Eminem is that he SIGNED Eminem. Even Eminem admitted that without Dre he'd suck. - AlphaQ
Compton was his first album in years, it was pretty damn good.
At this time Dr. Dre is one of the most best older rappers.
Where has dre been? why is he number 6?V 6 Comments

This man has won 23 Grammys in 12 years, yea way more than Eminem who had a 4 year head start and 2 more than Hova and is the most critically acclaimed rapper he has never had just an okay album all of them are good and most are future classics this man made the classic debut College Dropout, he changed the game with his beautiful album 808's and Heartbreak influencing artist like Drake, Frank ocean and many other artists. He dropped a masterpiece, one of the greatest albums of all time in 2010 with the highly critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with his best song yet the breathtaking Runaway. He made a Dynasty album for years to come with jay z with Watch the Throne. And dropped the most experimental rap album of all time With Yeezus which included future classics blood on the leaves, black skinhead, and song of the year New Slaves. So far ye's 2015 follow up So Help me God will be another classic with the beautiful lullaby that is only one, one of the most unique ...more
Except for the part where his fans don't know who Paul McCartney is.
What is with his profile picture?
Hmm this is 2015 we talking about not 2016. - AlphaQV 3 Comments
Released "Zuhältertape Vol. 4" that year, which was one of his most lyrical releases, as well as one with the greatest production. Like on "King", the word play is not as in-your-face clever as on earlier releases, but despite its large amount actually quite subtle, and it takes you a time to realize it. "Diener beauftragen" and "Die Narbe auftragen" sound exactly the same, but if you only listen to it casually you would not catch the double entendre, just to name an example. It is also his most serious and cold hearted album. You really buy his dangerous pimp-druglord-gangster persona on here. For the first time, he sounds truly dangerous and unsettling (a line translates to "you'll get a slit across your throat so you resemble a fountain", and he says it so casually and almost bored, you think he's a heartless rich basterd to whom life means nothing). I love this album. - Martin_Canine
This is the main dude that should be way higher. if 50 wanted to he can make a #1 album easily
When u talking bout hip pop 50cent is definitely a force to be recogned with,dude is unstoppableV 6 Comments
His first two albums were average club bangers. With his third attempt Dark Sky Paradise, he stepped into not just a proper one, but an excellent one at that. Slept on, he now definitely deserves proper attention now.
Dude has BEEN at it, he is now on my top 15. This is coming from someone who didn't take you seriously from the start. Keep bringing the magic.
Big doesn't get the credit he deserves. Puts down some of the best verses in rap.
Big Sean is great, dark sky paradise was one of the best albums I've ever heardV 5 Comments
One of the best albums of the year yet no one acknowledges it
he my baby
This is the best Christian rapper ever! You don't even know he is talking about good stuff. He is a rapper that raps like he is a crazy porno who is stupid.
Best ever and knows God.. Great for people who realize there is a purpose in life and like rap.. The youth should listen to good rap like this
You should team up with Toby Mac

He is horrible he should be arrested fired retired and needs to kill himself.
Wow. You people wouldn't know a good rapper if he punched you. Wheezy is simply the best.

Tech is one of the best ever and is the best independent rapper of all time, so if all these other rappers are better than him just because they are in the mainstream media then these people don't know what rap is
Man. This guy is wack! His music is not your generic drake song. Tech n9ne is a unique and talented rapper who can compare to any modern day rapper. ANY RAPPER! He needs to be in the top ten. - Antwon
I'm sorry, but have you heard his new album "Strangeulations, Vol. II"?
10/10 beats anything Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and J Cole have made.
What a word smith.
