Best African Rapperscleff
The Top Ten
I think sarkodie is the best rapper Africa has ever seen so to me I believe he should be number one
I agree. Sarkodie doesn't only rap in his native language but raps in Engolish and makes him one of the best rappers of all time in Africa. He is ask rated as the fastest rapper. So I think this list should be relisted again.
Sark is the best rapper in ages and should be accorded his respect. He should be the best rapper in Africa
Yeah sarkodie is the bestV 139 Comments
Mi is the best, all all Africa rappers need to lowdown before before him because he is the best, good punch line and nice voice, from Israel
He is the best ever and nobody beats him in Africa
M.I is the greatest rapper african has seen after mode 9. Any other rappers come faster. Plus the fact that you rap fast doesn't make you a great rapper.
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 betterV 28 Comments
Best African rapper I've ever seen...he's taken the game on another level
Aka is the best rapper in Africa
Really talented but a bit underrated though
The baddestV 27 Comments
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 - cleff
"Wave Your Glasses", "Wayza", "Let The Beat Go", etc. This guy is best in Africa
Most influential rapper in RSA. If you look into when the two African giant countries of hip hop started collaborating it would take us to a song known as Boogie Down featuring Naeto C. The States at some point referred to him as the Jay Z of South Africa. This guy has paved the way in Africa (Boogie Down, Superhuman, Jigah, All Around The A, Let The Beat Go) & internationally (Ke Ledimo, Dream Girl). This guy was undisputed in the year 2007-2009 with Mnet listing him as Africa's greatest rapper, topping names like Tumi, M.I Abaga, Sasha, D Black & Naeto C. Long live, great oneV 4 Comments
The best of the best
Modenine is genuine rap
Ridiculous how out gunned other rappers are in front of this man. 7 times The Headies Lyricist on the Roll winner. Easily the best.
Great lyricism, great flow, great MC... Almost everything about him is great - cleff
A charisma like no other, a musician like no other, I just had to put him in - cleff
Naeto C is first
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
Best of the bestV 4 Comments
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

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
Man you the best king nyovest
Just Dope #MufasaV 17 Comments
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.
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...V 34 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
Better MC than Mode 9. Book Of ProVerb & Manuscript can body any album made by Mode 9. He's got better wordplay, better concepts, better freestyles, better charisma and he's the one MC than body any international MC without swearing on a track, but by just delivering pure lyricism and wordplay. So give it some thought guys, go and listen to those two albums and reshuffle your listV 4 Comments
Olamide is the best
For he is the best and nasty c to must be placed here
Badoo is the best all time
Olammide baddo lot of respect he is so ood, he raps with grate punch lines rymesV 5 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
Best rapper with skill
Lil Wine is not that popular although his worke seen are good so his Rapping Skills.
I love this Artist he seems unpopular but he got vud staff
Africa Hiphop Artisties must come up with Union like Organisation...V 3 Comments
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 is good.
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.
He is the best in Africa by far and the others know that

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
Best in Africa never seen a rapper like him before
He is a skhanda king best swag

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
