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 Royce ...read more.

The greatest rapper/artist ever.

The Best Rapper in the world! Two Diamond Albums, 15 Grammy's, an Oscar, Three Classic Albums. Nobody can take his place although many have tried but he shut that down real quick. Em is an incredible lyricist.

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

2 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

The only rapper who have guts to fight with em' and ain't afraid of EMINEM.

He killed Eminem.

He is awesome

Underrated! This man can do anything!

3 Yelawolf Yelawolf Michael Wayne Atha (born December 30, 1979), better known as Yelawolf, is an American rapper from Gadsden, Alabama. In his early years, Yelawolf released his first independent album "Creek Water', which was released in 2005. During 2005 to 2010, he released one extended play (EP) and four mixtapes. ...read more.

I really like Yelawolf, but I'm voting for him rather than Eminem because he's more deserving of the 2nd place spot than "Weird Beard" Kelly

The best white rapper not named Shady

In my opinion best alternative to Eminem

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

I first heard his rap talent in Sucker For Pain. I was so amazed that I looked him up and was honestly shocked by the result. He may look and act dorky but THIS DUDE CAN RAP!

He should be second for being one of the best lyrically written rappers

His flow is sick

How is he below MGK? - Genesyis

He was also a noted record producer under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman. Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on September 7, 2018.

He is amazinggg

Should be number 2 on this list

G-Eazy sucks. Poor man's Logic. - BobbyBiracial

He's not a mumble rapper. (besides eminem)

G-Eazy is very underrated in my opinion and he is one of the best overall rappers from this decade.

GOAT

7 Macklemore Macklemore Ben Haggerty, (born, June 19, 1983) known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.

Macklemore has amazing, deep lyrics. Hands down one of my favorite MCs!

Should be second

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

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

"I'm not saying I'm the best, but I should be in the top ten. Give me a list of names, Imma top them. I'm just playing' with ya, I don't care where the top is. Leave me at the bottom. Let me work for it. You ain't never gonna find another rapper in the game and tell me that he works more." - NF

Great artist. Meaning in songs.

Really
... mgk at 2...NF easily kicks ass of any rapper includef here excluding eminem...

Em called him a "Recovery clone" on his newest album. On the brightside, he is a 'clone' of one of the greatest of all time. Still a great thing - tequila

9 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda (born 11 February 1977) is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer. He co-founded Linkin Park in 1996 and is the band's rhythm guitarist, primary songwriter, keyboardist, producer, and co-lead vocalist. ...read more.

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 Traumatic

Good rapper but he's Asian. - DarkBoi-X

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.

11 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

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.

12 Aesop Rock Aesop Rock Ian Matthias Bavitz, better known by his stage name Aesop Rock, is an American hip hop recording artist and producer residing in Portland, Oregon.

Aesop Rock, easily the greatest lyricist rap has ever had and one of the best flows in rap as well. Aesop Rock would wipe the floor with any other rapper on the list, even Eminem.

Should be no.3 - Genesyis

Number 1 Easily... Aes is 30x better than Eminem

The fact that the garbage g-eazy is higher is just sad - DaWyteNight

Guys he isn’t meant to be taken seriously

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.

15 Vinnie Paz Vinnie Paz Vincenzo Luvineri, better known as Vinnie Paz, is a Sicilian American rapper and the lyricist behind the Philadelphia underground hip hop group Jedi Mind Tricks.

Blows away most of the list

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

16 Tyler Joseph Tyler Joseph Tyler Robert Joseph is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and rapper. He is best known as the lead vocalist and keyboardist for American musical duo Twenty One Pilots.

One of the most peaceful voice that I've ever heard...
Even when he raps!
He's voice is so pure and soft.Even when he screams it is like he's trying to make you sleep.

Keep singing bro.
World needs your beautiful lyrics and voice.

He is an astounding singer and rapper. In my opinion, he has the whole package when it comes to rapping. Not a lot of rappers can rap so well with an amazing and original beat. Also, a lot of rappers cannot rap with an intention to make someone feel the same as Tyler does once you finish listening to one of his songs with him singing, let alone him rapping. lastly, the meaning behind his words is breathtaking.

This boy kills it! AND...his brother likes it when he raps fast!

I literally only came to this list to see Tyler on it. Love him!

He's the best white Christian rapper

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

28 R.A. The Rugged Man R.A. The Rugged Man Richard Andrew Thorburn, better known by his stage name R.A. the Rugged Man, is an American rapper. He began his music career at age 12, building a reputation locally for his lyrical skills.

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?

R.A should be on top 10

Damn he's far down.

When asked about R.A., Biggie said "I thought I was the illest".

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 5

30 Haystak

Best eva

Come on, he should be higher, he's the best white southern rapper of the 2000's not named Patrick Lanshaw. - DaWyteNight

What? yeah right Haystak is one of the best out there

Really haystak should be totally on top ten

31 Slug (From Atmosphere)

Amazing rapper, basically just a poet. He rhymes with a smooth flow and meaningful words. In my opinion Camera Thief is his best song

Lyrical giant.

32 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Definitely one of the most underrated white rappers around! Strong lyrics and lots of emotion! Not a bad singer either

The truth is: she neither sucks nor is she one of the best. I have never heard anything by her that was utter crap nor something that left me astounded how good it is. She makes easily digestible but mostly catchy radio pop with some rap in it. - Martin_Canine

42 Kollegah Kollegah Felix Antoine Blume, better known by his stage name Kollegah, is a German rapper of Canadian descent born on August 3rd, 1984. He is widely credited to have established multisyllabic rhyming and doubletime rapping in German hip hop. ...read more.

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

43 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

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
