Best Rappers of 2013Best up and coming rappers or rappers who are still making music.
The Top Ten
Eminem should allways be on the time of the best rapper list.
You always have to respect slim shady. Opened the rap genre to so many listeners. His next album will be quality.
You r the only rapper of the world you r best
Never will the day come somebody overtakes emienmV 259 Comments
Listen to good kid maad city with skits and how the songs tie in and tell me otherwise
All Hail King Kendrick freshest rapper ever his flow is great and this lyrics are too deep for the ordinary rap fan
The tupac of this generation! Hands down best rapper of 2013
So overrated it isn't even funny. His verse on control made him the most overrated rapper out. - DaWyteNightV 97 Comments
One of the most lyrical, deepest rappers of 2013, just listen to his newest album "Born Sinner" to see what I mean
J. Cole should be right behind Eminem. he song lyrics have meaning and talk about struggles of the African American men and women in their communities. he does have some songs that are about money and girls but that's why he shouldbe number two cause Eminem doesn't play and his rap is about real life and tough situations. not being hooked on drugs like it is a good thing
Him, Kendrick, Chance, Childish and everyone else are changing the game. If you don't like it, go listen to older stuff. Yes, Em and all these old school guys are still dope, but the game is changing and new faces are emerging. If anyone can even compete with Kendrick right now, its cole
Should be number 1...V 25 Comments
Drake shows talent in every song, not only in his voice, but also in his lyrics. He transmits so much energy, deepness and heart. He is special because no other rapper shows or rap their perspective and sense of life that Drakes shows. Drake you are my idol because you are the best example of being unique and following your oun heart no matter what others tell you. Thank you
King of hip hop today, when I say this I mean he is the most complete rapper we have today, Kendrick may be more of a pure MC, but doesn't have the perfect balance drake has to make commercial radio hits and still be a lyricist of meaning and purpose, This guys has been able to make the most number 1 rap singles in history in just 4 years. From stage performance to club presence to radio dominance and still remaining lyrically, this guy is at the top. Kanye told us its Drake season, he want lying.
Artistically speaking, Drake is probably number 1 Hip Hop artist today in the music industry along with Kanye, but he is not the king of Hip Hop. I think the king of Hip-Hop should be the best RAPPER out, skill-wise, MCing, and I think we can all agree that the best today is Kendrick.
Drake is a lyrical genius, hence he is always killing rappers career, all I can say is Nothing Was The Same September 17! It's going to be a classic and a memorable day in hip hop history
There is a higher human connection to his words than other rappers. Whatever mood he got ya.V 68 Comments
We can all relate to Macklemore's songs. Unlike other rappers his songs have meanings. He will always be number 1 in my mind and many people all over the nation.
Mack is the dopest of em all. He beats are fresh and unique. His lyrics capture and inspire the listeners. Ryan Lewis is a gnarly producer. King macklemore is the best
Macklemore is a beast. Opening new ground for rap (Thrift Shop is almost mocking mainstream rap), having some pretty awesome lyrics, knowing how to get people pumped up, an amazing sense of humor, and an awesome producer. He may not have the best flow or rhymes, but he makes up for it with inanely good lyrics and beats. - WonkeyDude98
He ok,but I still respect his subject matter in his songsV 27 Comments
Kanye's creativity is matched by none. He is more than just a rapper but an artist whether it be his music, video visuals or even his eye for fashion there is no competition, eminem is great and one of the best but way over rated.
He's very clever with what he do with his rap. I enjoy his style. Nice. I public he say crazy things. But that's him.
Kanye is a beast, musically the only rapper to change the game completely
Hell no, yeezus was one of the worst albums ever - DaWyteNightV 14 Comments
Jay z is nice
The king of rap since 1990 and the 2nd oldest in the game shawn is the most famous rapper and ritchest married to pop star beyonce on of the biggest singer in the world and hottest stars and jay-z is friends with tons of rapper and famous basket ball player and is an enemy to the game who has been in the game for 11 years and jay-z has been in the game for around 24 years and is currently 44 years old and is enemy to birdman who came around 1998 so not as long.
Its J-Hova for Gods sake. The Godfather of rap
Saturnist thumbs up for wiz khalifaV 8 Comments
Lil weezy Was born to be a rapper to people is a hobby but for him it's what his life, rapping to him is his way of talking, he is an idol to those who love rap, his punch-lines are just too good on one can touch them and they make total sense unlike other rappers
Multi platinum albums sold in row
Lil Wayne got free style, he is much more inspired than the others and so he has got what it takes to be a rapper
Lil Wayne gets hated on a lot and I think that its bull because Lil Wayne is one of the greatest rappers. I see people hating on him on Facebook and its just ignorant !V 82 Comments
A$AP needs to be top 15 his lines are so catchy with modern rap fans. While he goes hard in his verses, he also gets funny with some lyrics and he opens up one of the best rap songs of our generation, "f***** problem"
Because he is the best
So much more talented and better then Macklemore. He should be in front of Macklemore
Should be top 5V 6 Comments
Besides jay Z... He is the only one that still raps about songs that people can connect to... No one can really see him in the booth...
Tip should be in the top five of this list period in what kendrick doing down there?
I still to this day can't belive how underrated he is. He should be in the top 3, he got the swag, flow, lyrical talent, what more can you ask.
Long live the king
To the top comment. Most the world can relate to driving 250k cars and drive bys. He raps about stuff I do... Oh no that's Drake. Because most the world loves chick's and money...V 6 Comments
He's just the man
He is so great rapper
Him and Kendrick Lamar are tied in my eyes
No one understands how hard he works for him self and taylor gangV 24 Comments
Can't deny he is the best rapper. The best lyrical rapper.
Can't mad here lil Wayne.. Lil Wayne is whack
Nas the best rapper alive
One of the GOAT's this guy goes harddd on every song!V 3 Comments
I think B.O. B's Underground Luxury is one of the best albums of all time. Straight up.
He is a awesome rapper I like the song airplanes by B.O. B
B.O. B is not only a rapper he is also a poet
He is so cool! I love nothing' on you!V 3 Comments
Lil Wayne should not be on this list, nor should Drake. Hopsin should be higher, Joey Bada$$ should be able to fit in somewhere in this list and most of all, Dizzy Wright should. There is some really whack rappers on this list.
Great rapper, has been improving since he started, His first album Raw (2010) was great and knock madness will be on of the best releases of the year for sure, and his whole crew is great.
One of my favorite rappers at the time, he can be funny and also get a message across. Rap needs more people like Hopsin, he's been through some stuff with Ruthless but now he's doing good with his own record label. Single handedly one of the best, Lil Wayne shouldn't even be on this list. Hopsin should be at the top of this list, Eminem is over-rated.
Lil wayne shouldn't even be on this list - DaWyteNightV 8 Comments
He is an amazing rapper!
Wale is so dope. He needs to be up there with J. Cole
The man! Dope shoe game as well
Two words... No HandsV 2 Comments
Drake meek mill an Kendrick Lamar are the best but I had to go with meek milly because he has the best flow and he was 14 he should have been 1 2 or3
"meek mill is the realist rapper out"
Meek Is One I The Hardest Rappers to Do It I Would Know From Living In Delaware And Getting Every Mixtape That Dropped. Meek Is The Only One Who Can Really Say " Started From The Bottom " Everyone Talks About How He Just Raps About Money, Chains, Cars, Watches, etc. Why wouldn't He. Meek Came From Nothing To Being One Of The Most Known Rappers Alive And I Hope To Be A Rapper On DreamChasers Label To Shine Like Him.
Meek will one day become the best rapper everV 9 Comments
The best rapper I have ever heard of. He has such a unique flow and his lyrics are meaningful. He is like a storyteller while rapping but also is known for rapping really fast with amazing flow. No one around like him. Best ever. Technician for life.
Tech and his entire label are the kings of rap music. They rap about so much more than money, cars, women and other material possessions. Tech tells a story and they way he words his lyrics is so unique compared to any other rapper out there right now.
He is the best rapper alive. If you actually go through and listen to all of his music, you will actually see that he is a better lyricist than anyone else. Better on stage. Annunciates every word perfectly regardless of how quickly he double times the beat. GET OUT OF YOUR MAINSTREAM BUBBLE and listen to it! No one can even compete! Why do yall think eminem wont collaborate with him?
Okay, Tech N9ne raps about being the odd one out. He raps about not being perfect. He raps about pain and suffering and things you can relate to. At least that's the G side, there's also the king and the clown. His three faces of madness. He is indeed one of the best - NervfloV 3 Comments
I love tyler because he's just crazy and makes awesome music. Its different than a lot of other artists and has good flow
This dude must be in first place!
How's hopsin at a better placing then Tyler? did you even hear Wolf?
He's just different and y'all should learn to appreciate his stuff c'mon... Should be around 10V 1 Comment
Intelligent man doing intelligent thought provoking lyrics that should be seen as the best working after the great Food and liquor 2 and his repairs to Kendrick and the game in SLR 2
This man should be in the top 10 for sure. REAL rap. He defines it. Period.
All of his albums are classics or going to be classics
THE BEST RAPPER OF 2013!
One of my favorites is bugatti
Ace is the best. His rap are real unlike a lot of other rappers
Should be top 5 at least
Ace hood is the best rapper In the world - tendani666V 2 Comments
This guy is beyond wonderful, his new album black flag is wonderful, believe it or not since I started listening to him. I have gotten out of my depression some of his songs really speak to me, call him whatever you want I think he the best thing that I've come across
Okay first off, Black Flag was a mixtape. His only album is Lace Up, and he is working on his second album. 2nd of all, MGK can spit pretty fast, but he is not the fastest rapper of all time. I don't even think he tries to be.
He definitely is a very good musician and is starting to change the rap game. When time passes, he will go down as a legend. He has fans thatll stick with him no matter what, and his fanbase continues to grow. And he actually appreciates his fans more then most famous people, which is awesome.
Hang in there dude, more fame will come with time.
He is #1 to me his music speaks to mean and get me outta bad moods just gotta put his music on and I'm good. Can't wait to meet him.
Mind of a stonerV 17 Comments
He is the best rapper this year and he will continue to be as good a 2pac, nas, and biggie. People who can appreciate rap music will understand his lyrics are some of the best anyone as ever seen and his flow is spot on. You can not beat Earl Sweatshirt
Earl sweats undeniable flow is one of the best around this young rapper will be something to watch this year when doris drops
How is Lil Wayne, Macklemore, Kanye West, and Wiz Khalifa better rappers than Earl. His flow and vocab put them all to shame
Better than Kendrick and Logic and Hopsin TRUTH
Should be after Em
This kid should be at the top no lie
He should be in top 10. Acid Rap made him great.
How is he not in top 10, at least 6 or 5
At least top five. Acid Rap was by far the best mixtape of 2013. It should definitely put him in the top fiveV 2 Comments
Still one of the realest rappers
He is simply the best
One of the best. has 20-30 Amazing songs
Best voice. Great flow. Intelligent content in verses. Relevant information being presesnted even after 200+ songs. Constantly adapting / improving in a sea of mediocre artists. Many of which are on this list.
Nicest rapper out of NY these days. Only kid in this genration who can hold his own against Kendrick
Man he is ill.. Him and Freddie Gibbs are the best upcoming rappers..
He is lyrical and has a nice flow
Better than 95% of these rappers...V 1 Comment
Logic will be on the top in 2014
Great flow great voice great lyrics. He deserves better

Big sean is the best rapper because he can sing about anything and can change he's flow ever song
Big Sean is super bra
This is a bull list
Dizzy always puts everything he has into his lyrics. He doesn't just talk about sex or money, but he talks about his struggles and how he deals with them. Lil Wayne is trash I have heard vacuums sound better than him...
He's the next pac and is the best lyrics writter of all rappers, soon he will reach the top, PEACE!V 2 Comments
The best & fastest rapper of the world!
Vote for him
One of the guys that make sure he make the best in a track and he is G O O D
Some of his songs are really deep and are about real life and then others are filled with savage rhymes and lyrics he is underrated and should be in top 10 at least
One of the best in the game, lyrically gifted. Deep and inspiring raps about everything. He's one to watch
He has to be in top 10. He's the most underrated rapper in the game. Because the internet was one of the best of 2013
