Best White Rappers
The Top Ten
Lets be honest was is really a surprise. Selling 60 million albums worldwide, Eminem is not only widely considered the best white rapper ever, he's considered one of the best, and most controversial, rappers of all time. He kicked down the door for white rappers to be legitimate, not just novelty or underground acts. - anthonybecerra831
Eminem is definitely the best white rapper, he's one of the best rappers of all time. He has definitely changed Rap and Hip-Hop, he's one of the best rapper in all time. And into eyes the best rapper alive.
Is just the best hands down don't even need the top ten white he's the best ever and yes I know it's all opinion but opinion or not he is absolutely in the top 3 but he would be in the second place even If he was in top three because Tupac is "the best of all time"

This rebel is like my favorite rapper. He should go to the slammer for overcoming Eminem (in my opinion). This dude is like the most repetitive rapper, and by that I mean constant. In the past years, he could do like ten stanzas without breathing, and didn't do three word stanzas like Slimshady. I'm not against Slimshady, I love him! He's like my fourth favorite rapper, but nobody gives recognition to MGK, who in my perspective is even more talented like Eminem. Yes, I totally agree that Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly own their own way, own ego, own rap strategy, and are nobody else but themselves clearly, but I think MGK evaluates that even more because Eminem is a tiny bit relevant to other rappers of the 90's but no other rapper is like Machine Gun Kelly. Machine Gun Kelly (if you are reading this comment), please know that you are special like no other and I don't want you to change your rap strategery at all! You are like Eminem said, a "Rap God", although I haven't heard that ...more
He should be number 2 Behind Eminem and before YelaWolf. He has great flow and can rap really fast.
Not only is he an amazing rapper with meaningful lyrics he his a movement for thousands of kids out there EST Everyone Stands Together LACE UP!
He has been nothing but a POSITIVE INFLUENCE on my son RK #198!
WAY to go MGK from one grateful MoM!
Why is he not top 3? Seriously do any of you actually know what rap is? He has an amazing flow and good lyrics, the only reason I can think of is he is mixed.
Well he's mixed but it literally sickening he's not in the top 3
Why isn't he in the top 3? He should be in 2nd because he has very good flow, he can rap faster than anyone on this list (Except Eminem), His songs are very catchy, and he really cares about his fans. When I was waiting for his third studio album (Everybody) I heard that he released a mixtape (Bobby Tarantino) so then his fans can have something to listen to while we wait for the 3rd album. Also his fastest song was 8.8 syllables per second. That is faster than every rapper on this list (Except Eminem). So I say he should be in 2nd.
There's more to hip hop than rapping fast, and also Logic is technically not white. If he is, then Joyner would be too. - tripsten
He is the most amazing person on the earth I love his music and obsessed with his album. best rapper ever hands up and hands down.V 91 Comments
I can't NOT vote for Yela. He stays to his roots, he didn't go all Hollywood like a lot of rappers do, and he's from the great AL (automatic points). 10/10 awesome. Only people on this list that might be better than him (though I think it's a tie, with Eminem pulling ahead, but he's been around the longest, so... ) are Eminem and MGK
Yelawolf's the only rapper that's ever brought a tear to my eye, and I've listened to Eminem's "Mockingbird". His track, "Disappear" from the "Love Story" album was original work unlike any rap I've ever listened to. His style is original and full of passion. He makes the top of my list any day.
Yelawolf is by far hands down THE most talented artist in rap & hip-hop today!...of all time? Well not yet but notice that I say YET. His verbal flavor is like no others. The mixing of lyrical melodies into his New South style of music is absolutely brilliant. He definitely raps & sings about real stuff & it seems to come original & straight from his heart which nobody can duplicate. H.B.
0 to 60!
Great rapper and great performer. Truly one of the greatest for me, deserves a place right behind Eminem. "Coldest white rapper in the game since the one with the bleached hair". Been following him for years and he's just getting warmed up y'all. To the people thinking his songs miss substance: look under the surface, read between the lines, listen to all his songs and you'll find the substance for sure (Everything will be allright, Marilyn, Must be nice, Shoot me down, Far Alone, Downtown Love, Sad boy, Remember you,...) I like that he has the struggle between being famous, wanting to be alone and just wanting to do well in life and for his family. Love his gratitude and openess about being sad once in a while and having anxiety about people and live. He's one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to empowering me to work hard for what I want in life, work hard and party hard. From the bay to the universe! You go, G.!
In my opinion should be behind Eminem, he has a great talent. He kills the game every time a song drops. Kinda better than Mgk.
Honestly speaking I love g-eazy especially 4 the fact that he isn't afraid to rap what's really on his mind and he isn't simply direct but gives his lyrics deeper meaning. Sign of a true artist I think he deserves to be #2
Way better then MGK. His style is also great. He doesn't got that tattoos and good chains. He's got a slick 1950s look and it's awesomeV 57 Comments
How is this guy not on the list... For starters, many people have been saying he is one of the best white rappers for a while now, and he rapped out Thrift Shop.
End of story.
He is now looked on as mainstream but if on listen to his old albums you will be amazed
Why isn't he second? Or even joint first? He is actually amazing he's better than 7th I'll tell you that now
Macklemore has amazing, deep lyrics. Hands down one of my favorite MCs!V 35 Comments
Mac Miller has always come up with some brilliant music.. N he was a sensation back in the time.. He has come back.. N I feel after what all he has overcome to be here again is commendable.. And he should be respected and also I feel his music is getting better and better with every passing day..this man is back.. N he deserves the love and respect.
Mac has real deal talent. He is always evolving and growing as an artist, which just makes him increasingly versatile. He is just getting started too.
It's not a debate that em is number 1 but this guy is creative and versatile and deserves to be 2nd
He left us too soon R.I.P Mac Miller - BreakFastBeast2005V 36 Comments
I don't think people really know Mike's rap tracks since Linkin Park's hits kinda mask all their other songs, if you haven't.. check out songs like " High voltage", " I have not begun", When they come for me", Wretches and Kings, "wastelands", and " until it breaks".
He also goes under the name " Fort Minor", that's completely Hip hop, if you haven't.. you should definitely give it a listen.
You CANNOT forget about Mike. Eminem is EASILY the best white rapper, but this guy is underrated. We forget that he's a rapper because he's in one of the nu-metal bands of all time (and because, while most rappers have a pretty hardcore exterior, he's basically the nicest guy in the world), but Mike is one of the best white rappers, if not one of the best rappers, to ever live. He's multi-talented, yes, but his rapping skills are pretty top-notch.
I Really didn't know him until linkin park and tracks "in the end" and "high voltage". And his not just a rapper his also plays A LOT of instruments! He's ALSO a great singer, songwriter and artist! Most of his lyrics have a deep meaning!
Mike shinoda has come along way from the few months losing his best friend then he comes out of nowhere and released a amazing album post TraumaticV 25 Comments
Amazing flow! His second album, Therapy Session was easily the most hyped and strongest album of the year! He doesn't fit the Christian rapper mold and he is able to flow between mainstream and Christian rap. Just depends on his mood.
NF is an emotional person, but a rapper too. People think he's not a good rapper because he shares his feeling buts that's wrong. NO NAME is my favorite of his at the moment because it's a cool rap song but has emotion in it too. People say he's overrated but when you think about it, Eminem is popular when his rap song aren't eve that good. That's just my opinion, no disrespect.
Yes. Look up Hands Up, Wake Up, All I have, and Just being me by this guy.
On top 10 christian rappers he's number 7, but in top 10 of all white rappers he's number 8... Something doesn't make sense, why are they so close?
Also he's really good, should be higher imp
Rittz kills it every time he spits. There's no doubt about that, but he doesn't get the credit he deserves. I know he's better than Yelawolf. Next to nothing was second on the record sales when it dropped so I think that probably says it all. The way he words his rhymes and the beats he kills, there's no doubt that he's in the top five white rappers hands down. Bloody Murdah!
I love me some rittz! I relate to so many of his songs.
P.s. he should at least be in the top 5!
Best white rapper besides em - Therealvictor
Should be number 2V 14 Comments
Why the hell is UBI 8th! Has anyone heard his lyricism. The way he puts his thoughts together and makes it rhyme puts him in the top 20 of all time for me. He definitely beats Lil Wayne and Drake by a long shot. He's just never noticed because he's not mainstream.
Who the hell is this guy? - venomouskillingmachine
UBI is lyrically better than all except Em
I agree that this cat has the talent and potential skills to one day rest a lot closer to the top of this list (or any list of top lyricists for that matter). If he could bring a little more depth to his style, a little something people can relate to...more of the struggle, less of the lyrical bravado bragadocious type ish...show us what he's really made of...because there's no doubt he got the rhyme patterns and the linguistics to match. He's got all the ingredients, just needs to evolve the recipe a bit. When I was young you had to be from the ghetto of a major city to make it anywhere in hip hop, and after awhile the wife & kids & good job route started to look way more cozy. I hope this cat keeps it moving, not only for himself but for those like him, who came before.
It's been proven that Aesop has the largest vocabulary of any rapper ever, and I think that plus the fact that he is just an amazing rapper period warrants him being in the top 10
Seeing Aesop Rock at 35 makes me want to cry. Same with Action Bronson not being top 10.
Aesop Rock below John Cena? Well, time to shoot myself in the face - 445956
The fact that the garbage g-eazy is higher is just sad - DaWyteNightV 11 Comments
From 2003 to 2012 Wyte was easily the 2nd best white rapper out behind em! Still spits fire to this day, never went mainstream and still puts in work. Lifetime fan of Wyte should be too 5
LIl wyte came out when not many white rappers were around except for Em, signed by 3 6 mafia badass lyrics and beats should be top 10
He is not number 32 he spits better bars then any other white rapper out there but not always appropriate so top 3
Lil wyte should definitely be in the too t are you serious nowV 2 Comments
Brother Ali is albino lol and ranks higher than R.A.? Popularity is his only downfall! By far the best white boy emcee of all time! Where's Alchemist and Evidence on this list?
Damn he's far down.
When asked about R.A., Biggie said "I thought I was the illest".
R.A should be on top 10V 2 Comments
Cool dude and nice guy but nobody has ever heard his songs, at least I haven't.
It says "John Cena". But, where is he in the picture? All I can see is an American flag! - TheFourthWorld
I thought he was an American wrestler, not a rapper. - LemonComputer
I am about to add butterfly to this list - kok2V 28 Comments
No doubt should be right behind Eminem. He's a monster on the microphone
Number two behind Eminem
Webby is number one all day. Em is past his prime and webbys got bars for days and is constantly coming out with new stuff.
Definitely better than Logic or Mac Miller or Rittzz, why are they up there and not WebbyV 5 Comments
Rap is about content, and brother ali definitely has it. Just listen to Uncle Sam damn
Thank goodness he's over John Cena and TobyMac. He deserves to be heard by so many more ears; not only can this guy rap, but he conveys positive messages. He addresses social issues in songs like Vendetta, and he's got really some really fantastic rap tracks, such as You Can't Stop Me. It won't be long until he's up there with guys Kendrick and Eminem - nathanherbst
He is super amazing, especially live. When I saw him, he was spitting raps while skateboarding all over the stage. Amazing. - LarkwingFlight
Check him out. Listen to uncomfortable and vendetta. Slow starts but when the beat comes you won't be disappointed
He's the best white Christian rapperV 8 Comments
I can't believe vinnie Paz is below vanilla ice after the albums this great lyricist has produced, mockery
Vinnie has some of the best lyrics in the game
Lil Dicky is such an innovative rapper. "Professional Rapper is one of the most creative tracks I've heard. Snoop's nonchalant tone while Dicky raps his ass off is killer.
The man has no hardship in his background but his raps are strong and has a Good beat. He is new give him time and let him make a name for him self
Super-Talented. He has a vision for the game he wants of himself, and that's something hood rappers need to start understanding. Be yourself, and be good at it-- Lil' Dicky has some dope tracks.
Guys he isn’t meant to be taken seriouslyV 24 Comments
This list shows that everyone on here has a horrible taste in music. The dude from linkin park and John Cena are higher on this list then El-p this is straight insulting and disrespectful to El-P.
This is straight up disrespectful.
Didn't find Aesop Rock so I voted for a other great rapper!
He's Latino. When will people realize that white and black aren't the only races. - RalphBob
Should be in the top 10 - venomouskillingmachine
Shouldn't be here - jameshoward
This guy is sick on check him out on YouTube. My favorite song by him is Kindest Regards
I think he should be right next to em because he's talking about his life not what others are talking about and putting him under all these people is just dumb
Honestly one of the most passionate and emotional rappers I've ever heard.
DopeV 3 Comments
His lyrics can easily go toe to toe with those of immortal technique
How is The People's Champ so low? This guy been sticking to his guns since day 1. He loves cars, grills, money, and women, in that order. If you haven't heard his new album Slabgod, go check that out. He can't (or hasn't shown he's able to) do the fast/complicated rap stuff that some guys above him can, but he shouldn't be outside the top ten.
One of the original white rappers that got big other than Eminem. He was up and coming a while back.
Basically a Dirty South legend, should be much higher on this list.
Been influencing rap before some of these guys were born. Top 5V 2 Comments
He has extreme lyricism - DaWyteNight
Hoodie Allen is awesome. Have you heard Leap Year? One of my favorite albums of all time. His beats are dope and his lyrics are so good.
Dude this guy is AMAZING!
Yeah this dudes the best
DankV 10 Comments
Definitely one of the most underrated white rappers around! Strong lyrics and lots of emotion! Not a bad singer either
Very underrated. Jelly Roll is awesome - Jonerman
Should be number 1 the greatest
Definitely WAY under rated! Jelly and Haystak are by far two of the best white rappers out!V 1 Comment
Best rapper ever rip, lil peep
Lil peep should be way higher than this bro.listen to the Brightside maybe that will change your mind. then after you listen to it he will be 1. R.I.P peep I will forever miss you
Below Lil Xan, why?
Amazing rapper, basically just a poet. He rhymes with a smooth flow and meaningful words. In my opinion Camera Thief is his best song
Love his original style and fresh riffs, totally real and to the heart
Pitbull is above him. I mean, come on, people!
He can rap really fast!
His lyrics are meaningful!
He tells people to stay alive!
He mixes genres really good!
|-/ Stay Alive Frens - inamate
He just has that old school swag
Are you kidding 25th? this dude has the flow of Eminem and actually makes some sense in his lyrics, like he is just amazing he should at least be in the top ten.
Extremely underrated and guarantee he would kill anybody in a rap battle w no question
Come on he's a gangsta he gots more ice on his neck than a glacier
(like if u get the refrence)
Everything that comes out of his mouth is basically gold.
Johnny 3 and Charlie scene are amazing they should both be in the top 10 at least
He always keeps things humble and never let's the mainstream hit him.
He's just amazing and he's from my favorite bandV 3 Comments
If you don't vote for him means you got some ear problems
I expected him to be with Eminem on top but he is down here?
This list is so messed up
Put him on top with Eminem
Pitbull is a rapper
Love dis dude man, he fine And he a good rapperV 56 Comments
Even if you don't understand German... listen to "Mondfinsternis" to know at least one reason why he should be in the Top 10 (the song is damn fast - even though not one of my favorites by him, it is enough proof to a non-German speaker what he is capable of).
What's even more important is the lyrical complexity of his raps. Not only is it rare that less than five syllables rhyme per line, he always uses so many advanced metaphors, homophones, double entendres and similar playings with the German language, that it seems as if he has an entire encyclopaedia attached to his brain.
Never underestimate him because he is a fake as can be gangster rapper. This is some of the lyrically finest I have ever heard in Hip Hop. - Martin_Canine
I've got no problem with the top 3 how it is, but Everlast is great.
Whitey's revenge best diss song ever form best white rapper
Still relevant in todays underground rap scene.
Everlast is the first REAL SOLO WHITE RAPPERS - joseca86V 6 Comments
Absolutely smashes Eminem should be top 10
If you're going to compare him to Eminem, also point out that Watsky also isn't a misogynist or homophobe.
Raps even faster than Eminem
How does Charlie Sheen beat this guy. SMHV 6 Comments
You sing ice ice baby and your ugly
Hw Was just hated for being White check out his album Mind Blowin
Vanilla ice is like us tin biker before justin biber so he sucks
Really haystak should be totally on top ten
What? yeah right Haystak is one of the best out there
One the best vocabularies of any rapper, not to mention what he brings to the table being a chef. The metaphors are primo. Should be top 15
Just the happiest guy, great music too
How is action 43? A complete travesty
Should be top 5V 1 Comment
He isn't a rapper. Sure he's parodied some rap songs, but ain't a rapper. - LarkwingFlight
This dude is dope as hell. He rhymes harder syllables than most pop rappers today can even sound out through all that lean and molly...
Dungeon dragon is alright but he still sucks
He's had his low spots but he's back and still one of the best!
How is Mad not higher on this list?V 2 Comments
People forget how awesome Rage Against the Machine was.
T-Mac has gone more pop lately, but he still has the occasional rap song. And when he does, it's always amazing! - LarkwingFlight
This artist has a righteous rap that doesn't need to four letter word it to say it.
Awesome rapper with a different look from most other rappers, but still great!
