He's the laughingstock

Lil Wayne may have Grammies, but he is not a good rapper. All he raps about is girls, money, and weed.

Lil wayne is the

2 Cardi B Cardi B

It's still baffling that anyone can think she's good. You'd have to have an IQ of -20 to like this crap! - DaWyteNight

Come on people, maybe she isn't necessarily a great rapper but she's definitely not as horrible as y'all make it out to be - StarlightSpanks

Yeah she is, listen to her older songs like Stripper Ho before she had a ghostwriter - DaWyteNight

I don't know who is more retarded, retardi b herself or people who think she has talent! - TheArtOfBars

She sucks.

Overrated man - BobbyBiracial

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

My god shes terrible whats worse is that they think 1 or 2 "good" songs make her a good artist and makes up for the bad songs she has (Which is pretty much all of them) so yeah shes one of the worst musicans of all time if you can even call her one. - christangrant

She's a good rapper people think are bad - ProPanda

She is retarded. Not as retarded as retardi b but still very retarded. - TheArtOfBars


5 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

Pretty mediocre overall - DaWyteNight

Nope he's good - venomouskillingmachine

6 Travis Scott Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

Autotune, autotune, autotune and more autotune! No real talent, his music is just randomness and nothing worth hearing.

He just has catchy songs, but he is not a good lyricist at all. - DaWyteNight

Autotune! - TheArtOfBars

7 Young Jeezy Young Jeezy Young Jeezy is a hip hop artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He is most known for his album "Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101", his loud, distinctive rap voice, his song "Put On", his longtime beef with rapper Gucci Mane, and for his tough talk and street lyrics.

He is literally terrible. He says the same thing in every verse, and he is so very slow at it, it is so painful to listen to him. I'd honestly rather listen to Gucci Mane, at least Gucci doesn't sound like he's rapping while he's on the toilet. - DaWyteNight

He sucks so bad it's not even funny. Listening to him rap is so painful because he always says the same thing and he is so very slow at it. People say Birdman is painful to listen to because he raps slow, but this guy is worse. - TheArtOfBars

Great news for hip hop fans: Young Jeezy announced that after his next album, he will be retiring from rap! Can I get an Amen? Thank the heavens! Everybody rejoice!

8 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Where is she now?
Answer: Non-exsistant - BreakFastBeast2005

9 Ski Mask the Slump God

He is actually terrible, why is this even a debate?

I don't get the hype, I've listened to his song Nuketown and it wasn't even that good. All he did was yell in a weird voice. - CharismaticKat

He is literal trash - DaWyteNight

10 Missy Elliott Missy Elliott Melissa Arnette Elliott is an American musician, hip hop recording artist, dancer and record producer.

She sucks, like bad. How did people actually accept her as a good artist? I guess it's just cause "she's black and she's female" give me a break!

She sucks - ILikeSexyGirls

We can thank this woman for all the horrible female rappers we have nowadays. I get that her music was "fun" and "empowering for women" but I just can't take her seriously as an MC. - DaWyteNight

? 6IX9INE 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper.

Yes, about 85% of this site hates him, but with Gummo peaking in the Top 20 and finishing in the Top 60 of the Year-End as well as "FEFE" making the top 5, it's obvious that this idiot has "fans"

Funny none of those fans can provide a reason for 6ix9ine being "so amazing" other than that he's supposedly "lit" or "fire" - StarlightSpanks

? XXXTentacion XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (born January 23, 1998), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter.

...I get it, his death is horrible, but that doesn't make him a good artist.
It's not even just his manipulative, lazy lyrics, it's also the production of the songs that's also godawful.
And if you want a non-manipulative song that still sucks hard listen to "LOOK AT ME! "
(Ready for a bunch of threats from kids who think his death automatically makes him a good rapper) - StarlightSpanks

This guy calls himself the "Greatest Rockstar that ever lived" then goes and forgets the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody oh yeah he's truly the greatest Rockstar of all time (sarcasm) - christangrant

I don't get why people like him so much. He's such a joke. The only song I like by him is Heartless and that's it. - CharismaticKat

He's definitely overrated, but he isn't a bad rapper. - DaWyteNight

Because lots of people call him a top 5 lyricist or top 5 best rapper of all time and he isn't that good in terms of his lyrics or his flow, there are just a lot of better lyricists than him in my opinion. - DaWyteNight

He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

He's overhated, most people don't think he's good. He isn't the most skilled rapper but he can actually spit when he wants to in songs like Never, Why You Up In Here, Live Your Life remix, Act Like You Know, Rewind, Gotta Eat for example. He isn't as skilled as Pitbull, but he isn't complete trash either he just chooses to make catchy pop-rap music instead and it works for him. - DaWyteNight

Da hell? This guy is one of the best lyricists in hip hop today along with Sage the Gemini. Who put him on here?

They literally crossed the line when they put Flo Rida here! He is like the realest lyricist.

He is best known for his albums Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, and The Black Album. He is considered to be one of the best rappers of more.

This guy isn't on the same level as other legendary rappers from his time like Nas. And he's not the God MC, Rakim is the God MC. This guy literally has like 15 albums and people only still talk about three of them to this day, that should say something. He should've retired after the Black Album because other than American Gangster everything after that was crap. - DaWyteNight

35 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Good rapper who most people think is bad because they've been listening to the wrong songs. This guy can actually spit when he wants to but he chooses to make pop-rap music instead. He's not nas or K-Rino, but he can actually spit at a higher level than he is given credit for. Listen to Amore, give them what they ask for, hustler's withdrawal, blood is thicker than water, 305 Anthem, melting pot etc. People are probably only hearing him on Usher/Enrique/J-Lo songs which isn't an accurate representation of his skill. - DaWyteNight

Ehhh...he's pretty good
