The Top Ten

1 Eminem 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 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?

Well deserved

2 Dizaster

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

Dizaster is the GOAT(Greatest of all time! )🐐

3 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.

Even without consistency rapper from each tier struggle with him and he has beaten some of the best

He is the goat

Charlie Clipse & Daylyt are GOAT level whether veterans or not.

4 Arsonal

The best to control a crowed and rap best period

Just bars...


He's the best


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.

I think people bring they best when rapping against him, clearly the best

He's the GOAT in RAP in general

The amount of things fit in each bar... goat

6 Hollow Da Don

Best rebuttals/freestyler best angles top 5 lyrically #1 in my opinion

Most versatile, he edged battles against top names.

He wow the crowd seen him in London england

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!

7 Conceited

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



8 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

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.

9 Hitman Holla

He's the most hated on, most anticipated, and he travel and battle out of state the most



He is number 1
