Best African Rapperscleff
The Top Ten
He is the rap God in Africa
This guy be something else! wish you all understands everything he says, you wouldn't have compared him.
Greatest of all time
He is the best rapper who have ever seenV 155 Comments
If you look down the years, for all the songs he's released and the way he delivers. You'll believe that he's the KING, way above the rest. No one beats him. Listen to MI2 The Movie and Illegal Music II, then you will believe me.
M.I is the best Simple!
M.I is Africa's best rap export. The fact that Sark is rated better here is just a joke. If you are not Nigerian it might be hard to relate to his message. I have listened to every rapper on this list - except Scientific - and MI is miles better
Less talk about Intelligence, M.I is da best. RespekV 31 Comments
Super mega, this is a versatile artist
AKA is the best he proves this by the success of his song and his consistency
I think Aka is one of the best rappers in Africa.V 29 Comments
R.I.P King Jabba. Gone too soon
HHP - "See", "Mpitse" & "Thank You Note" made me call him Africa's G.O.A.T
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 - cleffV 7 Comments
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.V 1 Comment

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 - cleff
2 out of 2 classic albums "MotswakOriginator" & "Lost In Time"V 4 Comments
'Drops Hit after Hit, The only african hip hop artist to have 3 platinum albums'

Scientific lib speaks the truth,he talk abut things that happening around the world... I think for me he's is the best rapper in Africa...

For he is the best and nasty c to must be placed here
Baddo is the best no argument
Olamide is the bestV 6 Comments
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 - Aliwal
Lyrically, no one can touch this man! - Nervflo
Most technical lyricist in Africa
This Is Why I Respect this ManV 4 Comments
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 - Aliwal
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 - cleff
Khaligraph should be at the top
Best rapper. Can rap very fast in four languages. So far the fastest rapper.
He should be at the top. The best that Africa have ever seen.

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 - Aliwal
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
All Time High
Best in Africa never seen a rapper like him before
He is a skhanda king best swagV 4 Comments
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. - Aliwal
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
Heavychollo beat those wacks above hands down...best of all time

One of the most blessed artist
He's so blessed he should probly feature jesus on a track
Jovi has his unique rap music called mboko rap. He raps real life in Cameroon, peace and the life of the underprivileged. He is the king of rap in Cameroon
MbokoGod is number 1. His discography is epic and original, he created a new genre of rap "Mboko rap" and he's creativity is genius level. To top all that, he's a monster producer.
Jovi is certainly the best of the best. His flow is perfect in French English and other dialects. Plus he is a producer.
