Best White Rappers

The Top Ten

1 Eminem Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time . In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with ...read more.

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"

His songs are vary emotional and powerful

2 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly George Francis Barnes Jr., better known as "Machine Gun Kelly", was an American gangster from Memphis, Tennessee, during the prohibition era.

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!

Easily the best live performer, great lyricist, unlike most rappers he plays several instruments and very well. Kells has songs that'll hype you up instantly and he has songs that'll bring tears to your eyes. He's very straight up and the furthest thing from fake. He shares his opinion in the realest way. Mad respect for the guy he definitely deserves a high spot on this list.

His Rap is Fan f***ing tastic!

3 G-Eazy G-Eazy Gerald Earl Gillum, better known by his stage name G-Eazy, is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer from Oakland, California.

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.!

Kid is nice but not much substance in his raps. Still pretty cool and has that James dean swag

His look, his music, his lyrics are all from the past with a modern twist which just seems to work in his songs. He continues to get better with every album and will definitely become one of the best rappers in the game.

The best to me

4 Yelawolf Yelawolf Michael Wayne Atha, better known as Yelawolf, is an American hip hop recording artist from Gadsden, Alabama.

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

One of the most underrated ARTISTS. Guy is really one of the best songwriters of the present, as he showed on his new album Love Story. Has a lot of substance and passion in his music unlike most rappers who only talk about drugs, money, and women..and never sold himself out to make Pop radio hits like 95% of rappers today do.

He totally deserves number 2, no rapper no matter what color they are touch eminem but this guys is 2

Best... just that.

5 Mac Miller Mac Miller Malcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller, is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Have you heard faces? Or watching movies? Classic album in my opinion

It's not a debate that em is number 1 but this guy is creative and versatile and deserves to be 2nd

Just a dope mellow person who is also a sick rapper

Dang!

6 Logic Logic

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

Lyrically one of the best in all of rap. Up there with Lamar & Cole as far as story telling/lyrical meaning. Not only is he one of the best white/mixed rappers, but one of the best rappers period. Sad he doesn't get the respect he deserves.

Should be so much higher, ever listened to Young Jesus?

7 Macklemore Macklemore Ben Haggerty, known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.

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

He's obviously one of the best. He's the first white rapper since Eminem to win granny's.

How is Mac Miller above Macklemore?

8 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

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.

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 is a true artist. I'm also an Eminem fan, but M. Shinoda can play more instruments than I can count, do visual art (like paintings and stuff), and rap like a genius. Between that and all the charity stuff he does, I'd say he like a modern the Vinci.

Guys this man is a genius please take him to number 1.Soldiers show your support for Linkin Park

9 NF NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician.

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.

Yes. Look up Hands Up, Wake Up, All I have, and Just being me by this guy.

Has changed the way that I look at rap, he is a great rapper and has a sick flow kind of like Eminem but unique because he is a Christian rapper

He should be #3

10 Ubiquitous

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.

STRANGE! Music

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.

11 Pitbull Pitbull

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

If you don't vote for him means you got some ear problems

You consider Pitbull a good rapper? What are you smoking, you're a disgrace to hip hop fandom. - Totalbeasto001

Pitbull is a rapper

Technically,he is Cuban so not really fit for this list
But if you're going for white skinned rapper then Pitbull should be number two in front of Eminem

12 Rittz

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!

Only white rapper ever deserves any thing is Eminem

Rittz only receives about 280,000 monthly listeners on Spotify yet he is so good. All my friends and I listen to rittz

Man Andy knows what he's doing he should at least be on top 10

Mineo's at least a top 5

15 TobyMac TobyMac Toby McKeehan, better known by his stage name TobyMac, is a Christian hip hop recording artist, music producer, hip-hop and pop artist, songwriter and author.

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!

16 Lil' Dicky

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.

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

Lil Dicky goes hard and the background he has does not change the raping style. He's young and can make himself big

He is super under rated.
