83 MC Ren MC Ren Lorenzo Jerald Patterson, better known by his stage name MC Ren, is an American rapper from Compton, California. He is the founder and owner of the record label Villain Entertainment. His moniker is derived from the middle letters in his first name.

This Is One Of The Best Rappers Ever, He Should Be In The Top 10

84 Lil' Kim Lil' Kim Kimberly Denise Jones, known by her stage name Lil' Kim, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, model, and actress.

She is one of the most amazing rappers ever. I can't believe there is barely a female rapper here and the queen is at a low ranking. She deserves a higher rank and so do Queen Latifah, the Brat, Foxy Brown, Eve, Missy Elliott and even Nicki Minaj.

Best female artist in music history

85 Obie Trice Obie Trice Obie Trice is an American rapper and songwriter. He is most known for his time spent signed to Shady Records.

He had a 2x platinum album without it ever being on the radio! That's talent.

He had his 2 platnums because of eminiem promoting him listen to the begining of with out me and the end of drips and like every other song of his

86 Hilltop Hoods Hilltop Hoods Hilltop Hoods is an Australian hip hop group that formed in 1994 in Adelaide, South Australia. The group's founders are Suffa and MC Pressure, who were joined by DJ Debris.

One of the most underrated Hip-HOP bands

88 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.

A joke that he's not too 10

89 Childish Gambino Childish Gambino

His lyrics go together like bread and toast

90 Talib Kweli

He's a king, should be on the list

91 Tinie Tempah
92 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. the way...yes...i'd duu u though'! like anyone else llmao

93 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.

94 Lloyd Banks Lloyd Banks Christopher Charles Lloyd, better known by his stage name Lloyd Banks, is an American hip hop recording artist and member of East Coast hip hop group G-Unit, alongside childhood friends and fellow American rappers, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo.

Banks is the king of punchlines

95 R.A. the Rugged Man

This guy is too good

96 Big Sean Big Sean Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, known professionally as Big Sean, is an American hip hop recording artist from Detroit, Michigan.

I don't get why big sean is back this far like he is better than young thug but they have him before this guy like come on that's not on real facts

One of Detroit's greatest rapper next to Eminem, D12, and Obie Trice.

How the hell is Big Sean back this far

He's really good ��"️
