The Top Ten Battle Rappers of All Time
EMINEM IS BY FAR THE BEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME, HANDS DOWN.
I'm a 61 black male, I listen to all kinds of music, rap included. There 3 components in rapping. Articulation, Speed and the most important CREATIVITY. Em is excellent in all 3 but his creativity is like no other. The creation of his Alter Ego Slim Shady is genius. Then to solidify his Genius, he raps about the issues he went through while growing up. Now, that in itself is TOTAL GENIUS. Some may not like his style of rap, its fine. I just want to point out the Superior Talent Em possesses.
Eminem is a genius when I comes to lyrics, there are multiple videos of him rap battling and has shown prominent wok
By far the greatest. Nobody else even comes close to approaching his level.
I don't care who you are. Eminem will ruin your career. Period. "Nail In The Coffin" was the best diss track of all time. If you mess with this man, your career is over. There will never be another battle rapper like Eminem, and there will never be another Eminem.
Used to have the best show stopping battle lyrics of all time. Even though he's down a bit he can still bring the heat. The man is a lyrical genius even with the simple schemes.
He is the goat
Even without consistency rapper from each tier struggle with him and he has beaten some of the best
No one does it like he does... All of his battles are thought out, clear and intelligent.
Dizaster is way to advanced his not your typical gun bar one dimensional rapper, his on a different level always had his own style
Dizaster beat canibus in a rap battle and is a heavyweight when it comes to delivery and can flow on a beat unlike some battle rappers
His body of work dwarfs the whole scene, he is truly in his own bracket
He continues to get better every battle, if u look back on every year till now, there is really quite nothing like him in the whole battle-rap timeline. GOAT.
Loaded Lux is the best Battle rapper so far - the number of battles he's done and the ability to perform both with grit and wit qualifies him easily to the top of this list.
He's the GOAT in RAP in general
Do not disrespect God
I think people bring they best when rapping against him, clearly the best
This man is nasty and is known to be very disrespectful to his opponents! I love it
The best to control a crowed and rap best period
He is a brave chap
He's really good I enjoy all his battles
Hitman Holla's energy is the best thing God can ever give a person
He's the most hated on, most anticipated, and he travel and battle out of state the most
Greatest crowd control his energy is different legend
Great performer, his crowd control is on another level.
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
Best rebuttals/freestyler best angles top 5 lyrically #1 in my opinion
Most versatile, he edged battles against top names.
Best ever and he's humble
Conceited is the best rapper of all time because he is always bringing new things to the stage and he can rap against anyone and he don't care what you said because he comes back ten times harder then what you said.
I have never seen anyone out-rap this man, aside from Charlie Clips. Every word connects to a much deeper punchline later.
Ultra clever pen game, great personality when rapping
Funny and great bars! Keeps crowd on there feet.
Been in the game since the beginning of Canadian battle rap. Can control the crowd better than anyone. Can mix jokes and bars to clown his opponent into submission.
He beat Hollow
Funniest dude in the game
Most well rounded
One of the best freestylers on the planet
Best freestyles, bars and metaphors. Wish he can come battle in South Africa. Don flop & SCRAMBLES4MONEY HOOK IT UP
Best freestyle battle rapper period!
DNA has those effective punch lines
"His Granddad's favorite Grandson!
My man Rone is top 3 EASY. Rone & Soul Kahn - untouchable Tag team.
Rone should be top 3
Rone should be at the top of this list. I’m a huge em fan. However, his style as a battle rapper and ability to change it up is better than anyone. Hell dumb and Diz have been ducking this dude for years
The guy has some deep lines
With out racist jokes he kill anyone period
Best battle rapper because he's asian
Favorite Battle Rapper, He's Skilled, Clever,Gun Bar King, Brings the Heat & Energy! #CaveGang
Tay is the best from his delivery to set up to punchline, his energy on stage is on a hundred also his freestyle ability which the URL universe is sleeping on. His different because it doesn't make any difference if he starts or he replies his gun bars are always there for him as a come back and as a huge offense to his opponent...ROC OVER ANY PAPER OR SCISSORS ANY DAY!
His lyrics are way 2 advanced to be at 15
Best url battle rapper
He constantly dominating on a gangster rap and battle rap turf
Any of you saying he could beat em are delusional. Em has only lost 1 battle ever and that was back in 97 at the rap Olympics in the semifinals and he's so good now he would lose in a battle only by choice now
He is only looked down upon because people know he spits raw facts!
The king. No one is better. Only rapper to body your top pick easy son.
Legacy punches he is not the greatest at getting g the crowd but he is bar for bar as good as anyone
The battle rapper who came up with schemes
Mos underrated by fans
Nobody wants to battle m mook he been a beast a long time
Should be #1
Mook is the G. O. A. T! hands down! Best ever!
TSU is one not to be reckoned with... He should be in the top 10...
Word play surf is a different breed when on his game
Most charismatic wordsmith alive
No one gets his smart punchlines but he deserves to be in the top 10!
He is the best period he beaten people on this list including arsonal lmao
U can get the open hand, closed fist or deuces
Rock, Paper, Scissors
Pen game is too strong, even when he's joking. When he's serious, he can destroy
#1 hands down what
I mean really yall gon put illmac at number 14 really? hell no
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
Eyedea won the blaze battles tournament, and beat immortal technique in a rap battle, though he uses a beat unlike other rappers on this list he goes in with constant disses
Hella good, hella smooth, hella harsh, hella cool 100 degrees leather jacket, cause he's supa hot boi
He didn’t have to write. He worked off the top in the moment every time. Straight bruiser.
For the time he was a beast. It seemed like he freestyle too.
Philly Swain murdered him
He's an undiying legend
"His soul flyings, I'm still firing... looks like I'm waving two roman candles... stop getting on camera and say you popping them guns... king of lying mufasa etc"
Show times the best puns
Warrior stood toe to toe with the best
Beat all but 2 of the top 10
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
Just listen to 98 freestyle
Big L one of the nastiest MC'S to ever love
His Prof Shine scheme vs DNA and his gun scheme vs Verb...legendary...
His delivery the aggression lyrical all that most def top 20
K Shine better than so many people you got above him crazy...
His number 1 in my books.
I've watched his battles over a long time, on smack, 106 & pack, etc. He is the realest. I have love for this dude.
Man he should be in the top 3
He is the GOAT!
Did you really forget about him?
he is best
Not only him, Seimur and MC Pohoronil, maan!
Just look up Soul Khan VS J Fox. Bodybagged!
Soul Khan isn’t the GOAT of battle rap, but he damn sure is my favorite and the most entertaining battle rapper of all time. He’s won all but 2 battles and pretty much bodies everyone he goes against. The only big knock against Soul Khan is that he hasn’t taken on any juggernauts like Charlie, Tay Roc, Hollow Da Don, etc. Underrated though, watch his battles vs. J Fox, QP, and Deacon Frost for a sneak peek. His battle vs Dizaster doesn’t count because he’s boycotting traditional battling tactics ... which is lame but whatever. Still my favorite battle rapper. Charlie Clips is my #2 favorite.
Best in the world rn, if he comes in w all 3 rounds, I wouldn't bet against him no matter who it is.
Literally can kill anyone if he comes with 3 full rounds. His pen game is at the top right now...best in the worlddd!
Bars after bars
This guy crazy with his bars
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
I guess this means you got to be over 30 to know the truth
Best of all. I want to be his wife. Sonja
He super funny
He is the best
He's funny,and can defeat anyone
Best voice and styles
Are you kidding me Eminem can't rap at all
For my information lil Wayne has a nice voice
I love the whole ymcmb my favorite lil Wayne, drake, tyga, nicki manaj
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.
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
He is just a dope rapper
Clever lyrics and a different flow.
B Magic should be in the top 10.
Best puchliner after conceited known for his back to back punches
This is the guy who made charile go harder💯
Underrated and underplayed
What his life like?
Top 10 fasho
His intelligence kills like the capitalists he raps about
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
Best latino battle rapper
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
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.
Why he wasn't on the list, he's the best battle mc after krs one
