The Top Ten

1 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

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.

You're the best of the best, you can beat anybody and I mean anybody.

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.

2 Charlie Clips

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.

3 Dizaster

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

5 Hitman Holla

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

Performance wise, unmatched. Definitely top 2 and he ain't 2 FACTS 💯

Greatest crowd control his energy is different legend

6 Arsonal

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

7 Hollow Da Don

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

8 Conceited

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.


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

10 Rone

"His Granddad's favorite Grandson!

My man Rone is top 3 EASY. Rone & Soul Kahn - untouchable Tag team.

Funny, skilful and versatile

Rone should be top 3

The Contenders

11 Pat Stay

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

12 Dumbfoundead

The guy has some deep lines

With out racist jokes he kill anyone period

Best battle rapper because he's asian


13 Tay Roc

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

14 B Rabbit

there the best

don't mess with I'm

he good

15 Cassidy

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

Cassidy vs Freeway was the start of today's battle rap, PERIOD! If there wasn't an Cassidy that killed Freeway battle rap would still be the outlet to advance to the next level, which is the industry! No one thought battle rap was a lucrative business until we saw the very 1st viral battle ever! He's been in over 5000 battles and never lost, not even a tie like a shoe lace, not even Emimen himself can brag about a record like that! He also stands alone making $250,000 for his offical debut back into the Battle Rap scene and has been making 6 figures every time back on the stage, over $100,000 for 9 minutes of material which is over $27,777 a minute, $463 a second! That speaks volumes and solidifies his claim to be the G.O.A.T and The Savior of Battle Rap giving him his God Teir status that he confidently speaks about!

He is only looked down upon because people know he spits raw facts!

16 Iron Solomon

The battle rapper who came up with schemes

Mos underrated by fans

Legacy punches he is not the greatest at getting g the crowd but he is bar for bar as good as anyone


17 Murda Mook

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!

18 Tsu-Surf

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

Unique Killer

19 Daylyt

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

21 Eyedea

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.

22 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

23 K-Shine

His delivery the aggression lyrical all that most def top 20

His Prof Shine scheme vs DNA and his gun scheme vs Verb...legendary...

K Shine better than so many people you got above him crazy...

His number 1 in my books.

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
