2 Dizaster

He is the Messi of battle rap the GOAT. He is the only dizaster we Will have

There's a reason they call him the prince of persia!

Dizaster Dizaster, He is the greatest of all time. he is fast but you have to wait for the punlune to drop and it takes time for audience to connect with him.He is one of the best no doubt and I still remember the day Pat stay defeated him.

I don't know, but I feel Em can't defeat Diz in a rap battle. A real rap battle.

9 Conceited

U Funny
Cut the beat

This dude right here...lyrical genius! When he get the blasting on site, he lets you know why he was donned the name “Conceited”! Everyone thinks he spit fire on Nick Cannon show. But try type his name in the YouTube Search bar...better yet, Google him.

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

10 Pat Stay

Funniest dude in the game

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.

The Newcomers

? Neckbone

The Contenders

11 Rone

Rone should be top 3

Rone not in the top 10? lolll

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

"His Granddad's favorite Grandson!

12 DNA

Best scheme and deliver

DNA is the best

One of the best freestylers on the planet

Gun Titles barz God!

Way too established

Greatest Of All Time #GunBarKing

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!

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

19 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.

Better than Arsenal, better battler than Em

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

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

Coleman embarked on his career in rapping, with the hip hop trio, Three the Hard Way. His first notable appearance came more.

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

22 Daylyt

Rock, Paper, Scissors

23 Henry Bowers

Philly Swain murdered him

25 Aye Verb

"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"

Beat all but 2 of the top 10

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

Fun rapper.

34 KRS-One KRS-One Lawrence "Kris" Parker, better known by his stage names KRS-One, and Teacha, is an American rapper and occasional producer from The Bronx, New York City, New York.

Still #1

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
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.
38 B Magic

This is the guy who made charile go harder💯

B Magic should be in the top 10.

Best puchliner after conceited known for his back to back punches

39 Shotgun Suge

What his life like?

40 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop artist and is often referred to as one of the worst rappers of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, more.

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

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.

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

43 Gjonaj

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

44 Aczino

Best latino battle rapper

45 Shuffle-T
46 Canibus Canibus Germaine Williams, better known by his stage name Canibus, is a Jamaican born-American rapper and actor.
47 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

48 Cadalack Ron

Top 5

49 Cannabis

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

50 Locksmith Locksmith Davood Ali Asgari, better known by his stage name Locksmith, is an American rapper from Richmond, California.

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