Best African Rappers
The Top Ten
He is the best, on a mic he is a beast. Man just listen to brown paper bag only
He's the 2nd best rapper in Africa. If this was tennis he'd be Nadal, a great champion one of the greatest of all time, to some the greatest but he isn't Federer. He isn't M.I.
No beat can escape him he is de rap police .He arrests the beat and show the beat its use
He is the best rapper in all times...No beat can kill him..The Alpha rap God..
THE King. The Alpha. The Godfather. The greatest to have ever graced the sport. He is undoubtedly the undisputed number one rapper in Africa. He is where it began and where it ends.
He is the Godfather. He is the beginning and end of Rap in Africa. He's the undisputed King of the game.
He is a leader in the world of Rap. He showed the way and others followed. He's the forerunner of true hip-hop in Africa
He resuscitation hip hop in Africa,he is the best I know, sarkodie might be the best rapper, but M.I is above the best
Best African rapper I've ever seen...he's taken the game on another level
Aka is the best rapper in Africa
AKA is the best he proves this by the success of his song and his consistency
Really talented but a bit underrated though
He may not be the best lyricist but In this whole list he's the biggest "musical genius".
All hail to the King of Africa's vernecular hip hop. This dude's style is not a copy of the western hip hop, he keeps it local with a fresh delivery and great charisma
"Wave Your Glasses", "Wayza", "Let The Beat Go", etc. This guy is best in Africa
R.I.P King Jabba. Gone too soon
Nasty has been an amazing artist for the year he deserves your vote
Nasty c all the way
My best rapper in Africa
A charisma like no other, a musician like no other, I just had to put him in
It's obvious rap is something we don't hold with substance here in Africa but if only one can be ranked to rub shoulder with the best lyricist such as Eric sermon, talib kwali, Nas then it should be mode9. He is by far the best in Africa
Modenine is genuine rap
The best of the best
Ridiculous how out gunned other rappers are in front of this man. 7 times The Headies Lyricist on the Roll winner. Easily the best.
Are you doing Justice for putting him in this number? You have to listen to #ice_Prince_ft_sunny_nneji whisky and re-rate this did again
Ice prince I hope he is the best rap in Africa in fit in the all world
Ice prince is he make hit
He is the best rapper
Ya'll can't seriously put Ice Prince over this dude. He's got a better taste in musicality, better charisma and he's been is more consistent. Give the legend the spot which he deserves
You a good rapper
The MotswakOriginator lost in time recently released one of the best rap album in RSA, "Lost in Time" or should I dare to say this decade's best rap release in Africa (so far). This dude has got the best charisma in the African rap game
2 out of 2 classic albums "MotswakOriginator" & "Lost In Time"
Filled up the dome (20 000 capacity) and Orlando stadium (40 000), something I doubt any other person on this list can do
Cassper is the best after sark
'Drops Hit after Hit, The only african hip hop artist to have 3 platinum albums'
Man you the best king nyovest
Lil Wine Africa lyrics are merge with nice flow which makes him best rapper
Lil Wine Africa is the best I don't know why is not number 1
Lil Wine Africa is currently the game maintainer
I love lil wine Africa he is true big hip hop artist
This guy was the first rapper the continent which I saw as a great inspiration. He's not only a great rapper but he's also got a great personality. Let me take it back to '05 when he dropped his first and best classic album (of three classic albums) Book of ProVerb. Tracks such as "Microphone Sweet Home", "Marry Me", "Women" & "Heartbeat" stole my heart and I never stopped listening to him ever since. Lyrical technicality takes a dump on any rapper or name you'd find on this list or another
Lyrically, no one can touch this man!
Most technical lyricist in Africa
This Is Why I Respect this Man
He is the best rapper I have ever heard
Scientific is Africa all time best. Scientific always talk reality
I think scientific need to be the first on the list because he rap reality and his rap is standard.
He the best Because rapper are have ever see who rap is reality
The best to ever do it in South Africa for me. He is lyrically one the most special MCees on the continent. He's easily in Africa's top 10 and for some top 5.
Voted South Africa's Best Rapper Of All Time by two hip hop magazines. This guy is the best lyricist in the continent. He's like the African Dream version of Nas
The most consistent rapper in the continent being placed @ number 12. Hell naw! The poet MC deserves better. This guy has shut down shows where he performed alongside The Clipse & The Roots. He's killing it in the rap battle scene (scramble for money) and also killing this new wave ("Bump The Cheese Up" & "Visa")
The best lyricist in Africa, every album or mixtape that this dude has ever released has been rated as a classic
Olamide is the best
For he is the best and nasty c to must be placed here
Badoo is the best all time
Baddo na baba
The finest Rapper to have graced the music industry from Kenya real rhyme spitter, with levels that cannot be matched in Africa, a fast rapper ask Ice Prince how fast Khaligraph Jones can flip line after line
There is no match for you, you deserve the best and made it on top of this game.
Papa Jones African king #Khali baba yao
He is the best in Africa by far and the others know that
D black is good in rap, how he arrange and the story line
D-Black is cool but he shouldn't be on this list...Hey,we are talking about best rappers in Africa.
He is one of the best rappers of our time. A Ghanaian by birth.
He's good, the p diddy of Ghana.
Vernacular No. 2 King of Rap. He's the undisputed King of the Eastern part of Nigeria and is easily one of the greatest vernacular rappers EVER from Africa. He is second only to Sarkodie in my opinion.
Master of rhymes
He is good at rapping.
Best of all tym
One of the best rappers in Africa, ya'll ever heard him freestyle. Stop sleeping on him. Somalia (is he from Somalia) has blessed us. Love him, love his music and I love his energy
Only rapper in Africa besides HHP to have worked with Nas
Best rapper in his crew, Teargas. They won the best rap album award in South Africa, 2 years in a row. He broke out and created the new trend that's ruling over Africa known as Skanda hip hop. Last year (2015) he was voted the 2nd best rapper in Africa (which led to a lot of criticism). He outshine your favourite rapper (AKA) on every track they've ever been on, and his best hit song has got more views (Youtube) than any song released by AKA. He changed the way kids in South Africa wore, (last year). Enough said. Father of Skanda
Best in Africa never seen a rapper like him before
He is a skhanda king best swag
All Time High
How a rapper from Lesotho became the god mc in South Africa may sound amazing but it's not. If you'd listen to his lyrics you might see that he's been Africa's most hidden treasure. Listen to "Tell The Youth" from his classic album Age of Horus (2006). Even the album itself was one of the best I've heard. Go and listen to it. It's so ahead of it's time, and album message is still relevent to this day.
Southern Africa's rap god. I'm don't easily throw the word classic around but Age Of Horus (2006) was a classic album ahead of it's time. Best rapper to ever come outta Lesotho along with Konfab
Only two rappers in the world
Manifest and the rest
I think manifest should follow Africa best rapper sarkodie
He is simply the best after sarkodie is no more
Heavychollo beat those wacks above hands down...best of all time
What is heavychollo doing on this spot...he should be om top 2
If am been asked to share my opinion here I think this guy merit the top spot.
My opinion still remains that heavychollo still remain the best
One of the most blessed artist
He's so blessed he should probly feature jesus on a track
Jovi is the "realest" rapper I know. He sings his life, he sings his culture, he sings his country, continent... He has brought out a rap genre called "Mboko" from his local community, that, in my opinion, should be adopted as the African rap genre. Talking about rap in Africa without mentioning Jovi is a crime deserving public flogging.
He's fostered a whole new genre and through Mboko has given African Rap an identity the entire continent can get behind. And I mean, *entire continent*, because linguistically it covers both Anglophone and Francophone Africa as well as Creole. With over 10 projects out, he's a reference, and one of the greatest of his time.
The creator of African Raps. Same time MBOKO God, his prophecy comes from above all important messages to his people
He is the most Afrocentric rapper with unique beats. Africa should support Jovi and his art.
He has that spirit of rapping in vanacular regardless of the negative critics, telling him he can't make it if he does not rap in English. And he puts his rap on point with the mother tongue
I don't think there is any rapper on this list with as much creative word play as this kid...
This rapper is just something else, with outstanding word play
He's just so super creative the word play, metaphors no one compares. The guy is smart
