Top 10 Best Hip Hop Artists


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Kid Cudi Kid Cudi Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio.

Cudi doesn't try to flex or front he is cudi and everyone knows it. He genuinely wants to help other people and make the world better through his own music. He is an amazing songwriter an amazing rapper an amazing producer and overall an amazing musician which is something almost none of these other rappers have. He can make club bangers he can make smoke songs he's the pinnacle of acid rap (sorry chance) and he can snap and spit straight fire if he wants to but he doesn't always need to do what he wants with his music. Overall he is making the most important music in the game besides maybe Kendrick and the underachievers in my opinion I can see him being one of the most remembered artists of this generation

Literally THE best. Lil Wayne can't even compete with Cudi. His music is unique and really has meaning. He makes his own songs and they're really catchy.

His lyrics go together like bread and toast

87 Fat Joe

He's been rapping for twenty years and has helped some of the best build their careers. He helped Lil Wayne, Nelly, would've helped Pun if he lived longer, and DJ Khaled. Three of these four are considered some of the most important people in modern day hip hop. As well as Fat Joe being a fabulous rapper himself.

96 Rihanna Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian pop singer . Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

WEAK! Glad she's at least gaining some weight as her skinny butt was over-rated in her earlier years. Hate when folks drool over some chick because she's fair complexion etc. Dime a Dozen. A lot of them out there being produced and marketed. She merely got pushed out in front...but NOT because of any REAL talent that she possesses. Good producers, managers, marketers. She's probably learning as she grows up. Keep getting naked and people will stay interested in you Rihanna - no matter how 'basic' and 'common' you are!...just like Kim K. sex/nudity vs. talent... you lack the talent. like Chris... you are taught.. NOTHING ORIGINAL or CREATIVE coming from you.
