Best White Rappers
The Top Ten
Eminem knows how to sell music. The Marshall Mathers LP sold 1.76 million copies in its first week, making it the fastest-selling hip-hop album in history. Those numbers are utterly huge - today, a debut of 100,000 is considered very good. Eminem just blows it out of the water, and ten of his albums have hit number one on the Billboard 100.
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.
Absolutely. I am black and I love em. When this legend passes, hip hop will die
One of, if not the best rapper ever. Easily the best white rapper.
The only rapper who have guts to fight with em' and ain't afraid of EMINEM.
Uh no he is not great and the only rapper not afraid to stand up to Eminem in rap battle he didn’t even come close and Eminem has lost before to some rappers like mc juice who is not even that popular do your research guys. Machine gun kelly is not all that good
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.
He definitely deserves to be under Em and ABOVE MGK! I mean what?
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
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.
Logic is a monster of flows and speed. Amazing rhymes and powerful lyrics and melodies and has dope beats.
Logic is mix race he could be on a black rapper list and white rapper list. So since he is on this list remember logic is not just white.
Logic is really good at rapping he is about the same as eminem and machine gun kelly was roasted so hard by killshot eminem vs rap devil. Logic should totally be above machine gun kelly.
Hey guys did you know Logic is biracial yeah me too he's biracial
Did I mention he's biracial
No, you did not mention that he's biracial but thanks for telling me. Now I know a secret nobody else has known.
Oh, and did you know he's biracial.
His old stuff is the most relatable stuff I've ever heard. Still cold right now crushing the game from 2013-now and many years to come. People say he's not that lyrical uuuuuuuh tf? Sad boy, don't let me go, no less, Remember You, Endless summer, Tumblr girls and opportunity cost are unbeatable tracks. He places 2nd for me. Not better than Eminem but the only one in his league. He's been grinding music even when he wasn't noticed and stilled dropped fire. He deserves it more than anyone.
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
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
Have you heard faces? Or watching movies? Classic album in my opinion
His Album "Perception" and "The Search" were number 1 in the Billboard charts for a reason. This guy has been compared to Eminem so much people actually think he's generic! If you think that he's generic then you should listen to the song "Returns" from his most recent Album "The Search", because he actually answers that statement in a powerful way (Without cursing). He should at least be in the top 5 in this list, but people are just too consumed by the lies of him being an Eminem clone. Even Eminem called him a "recovery clone". If Eminem subtly dissed NF, then NF is doing something right. That means that NF is becoming a threat and Eminem is telling him that he notices NF. I respect him and I believe that he will be Number 1 when Eminem retires (if he decides to retire). If EM doesn't retire then I believe NF will be the only threat to EM in the future. It'll be cool to see them battle each other in the future, but it would also be awesome if they did a collab together. You thought ...more
He reminds me of Eminem but a better voice and he doesn't swear so anyone can listen to him.
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.
"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
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
His songs are deep and meaningful and he tells a story in every song. He should be much higher up on the list
Literally Mike is one of the most underrated rappers of all time
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!
If Merkules was on the list, he would go here and Ritz next. Ritz is fire. I hope he colabs with Eminem soon!
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
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.
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.
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
The man is a God
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
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
Blows away most of the list
Not even white, I'm pretty sure he's italian
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.
Love his original style and fresh riffs, totally real and to the heart
I literally only came to this list to see Tyler on it. Love him!
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
He is super amazing, especially live. When I saw him, he was spitting raps while skateboarding all over the stage. Amazing.
Check him out. Listen to uncomfortable and vendetta. Slow starts but when the beat comes you won't be disappointed
Totally awesome rapper. Just winning & chilling in the Rap industry, and deserves to be heard by more ears.
Best Australian rapper out there
He is sick AF and has this crazy style
It says "John Cena". But, where is he in the picture? All I can see is an American flag!
Cool dude and nice guy but nobody has ever heard his songs, at least I haven't.
I thought he was an American wrestler, not a rapper.
What? American Flag can rap?
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.
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
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.
Lil Dicky goes hard and the background he has does not change the raping style. He's young and can make himself big
Barely should be here
Has good songs like betrayed and wake up
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.
Man is in Run The Jewels. Get him higher
Didn't find Aesop Rock so I voted for a other great rapper!
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".
He's in the top 2 best whiteys and arguably the best
Everyone check these guys out
Austrailian rappers whaat? These guys have some real talent
Rap is about content, and brother ali definitely has it. Just listen to Uncle Sam damn
don't know him but he seems chill
