The Top Ten
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.
Is this even a question? Em can murder anyone and that's not just my opinion but that's what a lot of battle rappers and mainstream rappers themselves think. This guy's a wordsmith. U just gotta hear some of his freestyles to know that.
Are you kidding me a diamond artist who got his start battling and had many beefs in the game isn't number 1?

This Persian lyrical genius could literally take off any rappers head off clean if he's in the mood. Em is only better because he could ride a beat. But wait a minute, isn't this supposed to be a battle rap list? Dizaster should be #1 Period.
Diz literally made Canibus bust out a notepad to finish off that battle! I personally am an underground emcee and battled a lot a decade ago and to get someone with the Caliber as a once known greatest battle lyricist to completely go against all battle ethics and pull out a notepad and literally read garbage rhymes is truly nasty... PERIOD!
Despite all this his first language was arabic and he bust all rappers and humped them by his camel
I don't know, but I feel Em can't defeat Diz in a rap battle. A real rap battle.V 13 Comments
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.V 12 Comments
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
I think people bring they best when rapping against him, clearly the best
He is the greatest!V 6 Comments
The best to control a crowed and rap best period
This man is nasty and is known to be very disrespectful to his opponents! I love it
The best, simple like that.

Best rebuttals/freestyler best angles top 5 lyrically #1 in my opinion
All around battler hands down
Most versatile, he edged battles against top names.
He’s the best! Hasn’t lost since Arsonal in fight club... All his battles either been clearly won or debatable classics. He beat Clips & Lux... debatable with TayRoc but I have Hollow edging Roc. HOLLOW DA GOAT!V 3 Comments
He's the most hated on, most anticipated, and he travel and battle out of state the most
He is a very good rapper
Man best rapper on wild n out

I have never seen anyone out-rap this man, aside from Charlie Clips. Every word connects to a much deeper punchline later.
He's got the most clever bars dude is best punchliner in battle rap
SLOW IT DOWN, I JUST DISSED YOU
Cut the beat
The guy has some deep lines
He's one of the best battle rapper.. better than the top ten in this list, except for eminem.
Just YouTube dumbfoundead vs any of these clowns. it is hands down DFD
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
Pat can mix it up and use all sorts of flows to get the W. He's especially good at making jokes to clown the other mc, but then next round get aggressive.
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 is the bestV 2 Comments
"His Granddad's favorite Grandson!
Rone not in the top 10? lolll
The battle rapper who came up with schemes
Mos underrated by fans
I mean really yall gon put illmac at number 14 really? hell no
He is the best battle rapper of all time. He bodied Freeway, took a 12 year break (which included being in critical condition from a car accident), returned and destroyed Dizaster (one of the highest rated battlers of the modern era) 3-0.
He has a battle record of 5001-0. - isotope
He has never lost a battle and that's all I gotta say
Best Battle rapper
The bestV 5 Comments
He beat everyone he went up against he should be top 5!
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.
Better than Arsenal, better battler than Em
Shotty horroh beat all of your top picks! Should redo your list...he’s probably top two or three at least!V 5 Comments
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
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!
Best url battle rapper
Way too established
Greatest Of All Time #GunBarKingV 3 Comments
For the time he was a beast. It seemed like he freestyle too.
Come on why wasn't he on the list
Best of the top I've every seen
Greatest of all time.V 1 Comment
Nobody wants to battle m mook he been a beast a long time
Mook is the G. O. A. T! hands down! Best ever!
Pen game is too strong, even when he's joking. When he's serious, he can destroy
Should be way higher on this list, antics aside
Philly Swain murdered him
Man he should be in the top 3
He is the GOAT!
Show times the best puns
Beat all but 2 of the top 10
Its show time
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 firstV 1 Comment
Just look up Soul Khan VS J Fox. Bodybagged!
Did you really forget about him?
Not only him, Seimur and MC Pohoronil, maan!
His delivery the aggression lyrical all that most def top 20
His number 1 in my books.
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
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
B Magic should be in the top 10.
Best puchliner after conceited known for his back to back punches
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
What his life like?
His intelligence kills like the capitalists he raps about
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
Why he wasn't on the list, he's the best battle mc after krs one
