Why is Andre 3000 higher? Andre hasn't even released an actual studio album, while this legendary rapper has an entire discography full of classic songs! - ILikeSexyGirls
He's better than Scarface, in my humble opinion. - DaWyteNight
Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage names T.I. and Tip, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor born on September 25, 1980 in Atlanta, GA.
He has fallen off hard in these last few years but his old stuff is timeless, and the way he was able to tell a story and put words together was unlike anyone else. I'm Serious, Trap Muzik and Urban Legend were all great albums. Paper Trail, Trouble Man and Paperwork were decent too. - DaWyteNight
13? He's a better rapper than Andre 3000. - chocodilesforlife
4 Big Mello
Curtis Donnell Davis, better known by his stage name Big Mello, was an American rapper from Houston, Texas.
Why is Andre 3000 so high on the list? The dude hasn't even released a solo album and Big Mello is way underrated! R.I.P.
Big Mello dope as hell! R.I.P. - DaWyteNight
The best lyricist to come out of the south - DaWyteNight
6 Big Mike
Underrated and underappreciated, he should be more known - DaWyteNight

The man is a God
The best southern white rapper ever - DaWyteNight
Phonte Lyshod Coleman, better known as Phonte, is an American rapper, formerly of the now defunct North Carolina trio Little Brother and one-half of the duo The Foreign Exchange.
Southern lyricist with a chill east coast vibe, very lyrical and unlike a lot of southern rap dominating the mainstream during the 2000's. - DaWyteNight
Brad Terrence Jordan, better known by his stage name Scarface, is an American rapper, music producer, and author.
Can be considered the greatest rapper of all time, let alone best southern rapper
He's alright - DaWyteNight
How is Face not #1!? He was in the Geto Boys, which essentially created southern rap, and his storytelling techniques are incredible. Scarface is easily my #1 favorite rapper, or even musician/vocalist, of all time. Even more impressive, I'm 17 and white and I know him.
? Denzel Curry

Nope, he's pretty mediocre and unoriginal. Not the best at all. - RuminativeRobert
Eh...he's pretty average to me, nothing special. He is decent, but not great. - DaWyteNight
Probably one of the greatest lyricists from the south, and one of the most complex flows. His subject matter brings him down a bit though. - DaWyteNight
8Ball and MJG were better than UGK, their I said it! Unlike UGK both rappers were good, but 8Ball was better than MJG but MJG was still good too, unlike Pimp C in UGK who sucked on the mic. OutKast were good at first but then they became weird and it's a stretch too even call what they were making southern rap, 8Ball & MJG always stayed true to their audience and didn't sell out like OutKast.

WHY IS HE SO LOW? - Jon8201
Outkast! Ffs he should be in the top 3!
He's good, but he's never even released an actual rap solo album. - DaWyteNight
15 Lil Boosie

He's not the most lyrical rapper out there, but his old stuff was classic. Bad Azz, For My Thugs, and Bad Azz Mixtape Vol. 2 all classics. He's definitely past his prime and has had sadly fallen from grace over the years but that doesn't take away from how good he was during the 2000's. Some people compare him to Gucci Mane, but if you really listen to Boosie's older music you'll see that they are nothing alike. - DaWyteNight
16 Big Boi
He is decent, but not the best, and he is very inconsistent. - DaWyteNight
17 Pimp C
Not a very good rapper on the mic but rest in piece anyway - ILikeSexyGirls
Hakeem Seriki, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Houston, Texas, better known by his stage name Chamillionaire.
Christopher Brian "Chris" Bridges, better known by his stage name Ludacris, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and actor.
He is decent, but his subject matter is what holds him back. You can only rap about the same thing in so many different ways before it gets old. His album intros are always great, but he wastes most of his talent on typical club/sex songs. When people call him one of the goats, I kind of laugh. It's not that he isn't skilled enough, it's just that he hasn't earned that title yet and doesn't use his skill to it's full potential in my opinion. - DaWyteNight
Aye ma boi!
He is the real king of the South!
20 Big K.R.I.T.
Justin Scott, better known by his stage name Big K.R.I.T., is an American rapper and record producer from Meridian, Mississippi.

He literally sucks so bad, why is he even in the list? One of the worst rappers I've ever heard and gives the south a bad name. - RuminativeRobert
He sucks so bad it's not even funny - TheArtOfBars
He sucks - DaWyteNight
22 Trick Daddy
He's great, crazy flow he has. - RuminativeRobert
Now this guy is really good, the way he switches up his flow instantly is incredible, you never know where his verse is gonna take you. He outrapped Denzel Curry on his own song as well. - DaWyteNight
