Top 10 Best Hip Hop Artists

21 Tribe Called Quest

How is tribe called quest not placed higher than 22? They are the best MC in hip hop history; Tied with the roots and geto boys. However I don't even see the other two listed on here. Sad, that people consider the TURD FACE Lil Wayne better than the amazing, ATCQ

If Tribe isn't in your top ten and you listen to hip hop or rap then I don't know what you're listening to...

This site is whack saying these legends are worse that "Lil herb"

Sooo good

22 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.

Deep and meaningful lyrics, not a show off, doesn't try to show his money, cars or girls to others

Dance with the devil lyrics were too far dope.

Such an underrated rapper

His stuff is good

23 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.

Hop is real! Its wrong that Wiz Khalifa is higher than him on this list at the moment. Soon enough funk volume will be recognized and they will explode like a bomb!

The fact that I had to add this god is depressing. Hop is back.

Hopsin deserves to be in top ten

Hopsin is a million time better rapper than Lil Wayne so why is him to 23 place,this table should be reverse.

24 OutKast OutKast

What the hell people, Eminem isn't near of being a hip hop artist he is hardly a rapper anymore, outkast is awesome

OutKast IS HIP HOP, plain and simple.
Most of the artists on this list are terrible.
Outkast have been in the game for a long time and they are the best duo ever.

25 MF DOOM MF DOOM Daniel Dumile, also known as MF DOOM, is a British-born hip hop recording artist who spent most of his life in the United States.

DOOM is an incredible rapper and producer. His wordplay is unique and fantastic, and he was part of the best hip hop album of the 2000s (Madvillainy). It pains me to see him this low.

He should be number 4 or even higher

Great rapper and producer

Doom is a lyrical genuis

26 Lil Herb

21 is about accurate for the moment. Lil herb is only getting better everyday

27 Matisyahu
28 T.I. T.I. Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage names T.I. and Tip, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor from Atlanta, Georgia.

T.I. can rap, sing, anything you can imagine. Lots of rappers try to copy his style these days.T.I. is the king of the South!

Were is T.I. he is the greatest ever! He can rap and sing, not like Lil Wayne, that dude is garbage.T.I. is and will always be the greatest. Period. King of the south!

31 The Coup
32 Tech N9ne Tech N9ne ...read more.

Tech collaborates complicated rhymes and has a very intricate sound. He should definitely be up there with the all time greats. He is the number 1 independent rapper in the world for the soul reason he refused to go mainstream. Created his own record label so no one will tell him how to write his music. He is a god among rappers and should be viewed as one

Tech has amazing lyrics, I think he is the best lyricist of all time and he has flow and speed that goes with his clever style

Raw talent he is better than anybody on this list except maybe Tupac. People just don't know his music for some reason.

33 Del the Funky Homosapien
34 Eric B.
35 Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip
36 Fort Minor

Fort Minor isn't on this list, WHAT?! Best Hip-Hop Producer Mike Shinoda is its owner. So VOTE FOR FORT MINOR!

37 DMX DMX

Dmx has the style that no other hardcore rapper has

One of the best in my book should be up in top 5

What can I say about the Big dog in the hip hop he is diffently one of greatest rappers in the game he is undoutbley the best rapper alive, He has great rappering skills and great flow and he has a nack for telling a story in all of his songs.

38 Lupe Fiasco Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. He also performs as the frontman of rock band Japanese Cartoon ...read more.

One of the only rappers that have countless videos and websites pages dedicated to trying to figure out what the meaning of his lyrics are. No other rapper has the wordplay ability to create such elusive metaphors. Truly one of the smartest to ever grab the mic. Although the I am willing to admit he does have a weak flow at times and doesn't have such great production to back him up.

Lupe should be at least top 15. I'd put him somewhere in the top ten or at least just outside of it...This list is almost as sad as my life is...

I understand lack of interest for the uneducated, but this man can be unstoppable if he wants to. Giving him the thumbs up.

39 Kevin Gates Kevin Gates Kevin Jerome Gilyard, better known by his stage name Kevin Gates, is an American rapper, singer, and entrepreneur from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
40 SevenSixx

I voted for SevenSixx, because there music is lyrical high energy at its best! The hard songs like, "No Love","Get It Started" & "Not My Fault" get me pumped up and the soft songs like, "Deep", "Be Like This" "Miss Me" will have you sit back and think about life. Thank you guys! SevenSixx for life!

The best of the best

Not bad! Who are these guys?

There from Chicago, Illinois.
Very Original!

Rock on!
