Most well-rounded battler. His freestyles are dope, writtens are dope, gun bars, jokes, delivery, presence, performance, etc. He knows how to control the crowd. Definitely the best battler

Nobody wants to battle m mook he been a beast a long time

20 ShortyHorror

He would kill Em easily,Em doesn't deserve to be at the top...Em was even killed by juice. I have every hit song of Em on my phone but Em might be the best hip hop artist but not the best battle rapper.

He beat everyone he went up against he should be top 5!

Better than Arsenal, better battler than Em

Don't know why he's slow. Can only suggest its because he's white and from the uk. Battered Arsonal

Just listen to 98 freestyle

Insane this guy isn't number one. Born and Bred battle style rap on the underground scene. Beat out 2000 guys at Wax and carried on battling on the blocks ever after he blew up.

Top rapper of all time only person that might have him in a rap battle is Blind Fury

Big L one of the nastiest MC'S to ever love

Philly Swain murdered him

26 Aye Verb

Hardest punches in battle. Lyrically can out do any rapper you could think off. We''re still want an Aye Verb vs Loaded Lux. As for myself, I want an Aye Verb vs Hollohan battle first

Best of all. I want to be his wife. Sonja

I guess this means you got to be over 30 to know the truth

You know this list is BS when Krs is like in the 30s. He is no1. Nobody fks with Krs when it comes to battle rhyming

Bars after bars
This guy crazy with his bars

34 Lunar C

Clever lyrics and a different flow.

Fun rapper.

35 Juice

Juice is the best freestyler alive. He doesn't do written. He just comes off the top. I don't think he could even chart with written but if any of these guys above him had to battle him in a real "freestyle" he would destroy them. People don't freestyle anymore. They write songs and call it a freestyle. Juice is a dying breed.

36 Ness Lee

Underrated and underplayed

37 Hopsin Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California. Hopsin was born on July 18, 1985. His first album was called Emurge but he's best known for his album titled Raw.

41 DMX DMX Earl Simmons, known professionally as DMX and Dark Man X, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on December 18, 1970.

He is just a dope rapper

X has some of the hardest bars in rap history. Some of the most famous battle rappers today say that they once battled him and lost, that alone is a testament to his skill.

DMX slays all. he's started as a battle rapper and he peaked as the greatest battle rapper not named Eminem

42 Immortal Technique Immortal Technique Felipe Andres Coronel, better known by the stage name Immortal Technique, is an American rapper and urban activist from Lima, Peru. He was born on February 19, 1978

His intelligence kills like the capitalists he raps about

How is Gjonaj not on this list? If you haven't heard him b4, I guarantee that none of the rappers listed above can 3-0 him

46 Shuffle-T
47 Locksmith Locksmith Davood Ali Asgari, better known by his stage name Locksmith, is an American rapper from Richmond, California.

Lyrically can take out any mc. And for him not to be on that Ranker list is bs

A top battle rapper that made disaster forget his lines, true emcee.

48 Big T

Don't be fooled by his look. Most overlook big t because to be honest he isn't very pretty to watch him. But this overweight, sweat dripping MC has been there since the beginning battling top tier battle rappers. and never taken an L in my opinion. Big t definitely top 20

49 Cadalack Ron

Top 5

50 Cannabis

Why he wasn't on the list, he's the best battle mc after krs one
