De La Rocha is a rock god. Mike Shinoda's a cool guy and all, but De La Rocha managed to have the spirit of punk combined with the music of funk metal and the art of rapping. - MilesRS777

I love Mike and Linkin Park but Zack is an absolute BEAST

One of the leading activists of the 1990s. He has this accent for his rapping. By the way Rage Against the Machine is Funk Metal. That's why he sounds the way he does. His lyrics are amazing. Look at the song titles. Maggie's Farm, Bombtrack, Bulls On Parade, Take the Power Back, Killing in the Name, How Could I Just Kill a Man, Renegades of Funk, Guerrilla Radio, Ghost of Tom Joad. Albums are Rage Against the Machine, Evil Empire, The Battle of Los Angeles, and Renegades. He even had Maynard James Keenan from Tool in their first album featured in a song. He recruited Tim Cummorford as bassist and backup vocalist. Not only can he rap, but he can yell scream.

He is the best of all time, simple as, Mike shindig step aside and let real talent through

3 Trevor McNevan - Thousand Foot Krutch

Trevor McNevan is by far the best rock rapper. He is a great rock singer and he's an even better rapper. He own two awesome bands, Thousand Foot Krutch and FM Static, which both, especially TFK have great rock and rap songs. Trevor McNevan is also extremely good live. His songs Puppet and Rawkfist are perfect examples of great rock/rap songs and his new FM Static songs, especially My Brain Says Stop But My Heart Says Go have a lot of good rapping in them with of course good rock music. And the best of all he's a christian rapper!

Come on people you have to vote for Trevor McNevan he is the best!

Thousand Foot Krutch, Linkin Park, and POD came out with Set it Off, Hybrid Theory, and Satellite around the same time, and should be the standard for rap/rock albums. Keep rocking you three!

The real deal. Does both rap and rock vocals without any real supporting vocals. His lyrics mean something. Not just strong words and themes thrown together to get attention. Like some on this list.

Love you trevor mcnevan well god gifted sound and rapping

Mike is better than him his flow is unbeatable
