Best African Rappers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hymphatic Thabs

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

22 Manifest

The best

Best Ever African Rapper, all the list of the rappers must respect him in his bars n ryms, he is Ghana godmc of rap game, his style is incomparable, I tink he must b the first to second list

I think real hiphop funs know that m.manifest should be number one on this list. no other African rapper can contest with him for real.

An all round rapper.
Rapper with sense.
prolific rapper with quality lyrical flow.
mixes rap with maturity
