Best White Rappers

The Top Ten Best White Rappers

1 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 more.

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.

Eminem is number 1 for a reason. He's so good that even when he releases a bad album he still makes it to number 1 in the billboard charts. I respect him a lot for what he does! I don't know if MGK should be behind Eminem in this list at all. Especially considering his most recent EP album (which wasn't his best effort). If I shoulchoose a rapper to being right behind the GOAT of rap, then I personally would say NF. And no NF is not a copycat. People who say that are the people who haven't listened to his Albums "Perception" and "The Search". BUT there are some moments where he sounds like EM but his style is unique and is powerful. I agree that he's not better than EM, and probably never will be; but he could be the next number 1 white rapper when EM retires (if he retires). I just hope one day EM and NF would do a collab, because that would break the music industry. Especially since they both have extreme lyrical talent.

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.

2 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.

Two of the biggest enemy’s right next to each other em is waay better

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.

3 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. more.

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.

4 Logic Born on January 22, 1990, in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, is one of the most influential artists in the rap game today, with amazing lyricism and flow. Logic first gained major fame through making 2013's edition of the XXL Top-10 Freshmen List, and has easily more.

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 a monster of flows and speed. Amazing rhymes and powerful lyrics and melodies and has dope beats.

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.

5 Mac Miller Malcolm James McCormick (January 19, 1992 – September 7, 2018), best known by his stage name Mac Miller, was an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was also a noted record producer under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman. Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on September 7, 2018.

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

6 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.!

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

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

7 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.

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

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

Why isn't he second? Or even joint first? He is actually amazing he's better than 7th I'll tell you that now

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

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.

"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

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

9 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. more.

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 Traumatic

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.


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 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.

The Contenders

11 Rittz Jonathan McCollum, better known by his stage name Rittz, is an American rapper from Gwinnett County, Georgia.

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

12 Lil Wyte Patrick Lanshaw, better known by his stage name Lil Wyte, is an American rapper from Memphis, Tennessee.

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

13 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.

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

14 Lil' Dicky

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

15 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.

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

16 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.

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!

17 B-Nasty
18 Action Bronson

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 10 maybe top 5

19 John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

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?

20 Andy Mineo Andrew Aaron "Andy" Mineo, formerly known as C-Lite, is an American Christian hip hop artist, producer, and TV and music video director from New York City.

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.

21 Zack de la Rocha Zacharias Manuel "Zack" de la Rocha (born January 12, 1970) is an American musician, poet, rapper, and activist best known as the vocalist and lyricist of rap metal band Rage Against the Machine from 1991–2000, and after the band's reunion in 2007 until their last show in 2011. He left Rage Against more.

People forget how awesome Rage Against the Machine was.

Amazing but he's Latino


22 360

Best Australian rapper out there

He is sick AF and has this crazy style

23 Lil Xan

Shouldn't be here

Barely should be here

Has good songs like betrayed and wake up

24 Lil Peep Gustav Elijah Åhr, known professionally as Lil Peep, was an American rapper, singer, songwriter and model.

Best rapper ever rip, lil peep

One of the biggest emo rappers it should be way higher

He should be at least top 5

My favorite rapper ever

25 El-P

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!

26 Chris Webby Christian Webster, better known by his stage name Chris Webby, is an American rapper from Norwalk, Connecticut.

No doubt should be right behind Eminem. He's a monster on the microphone

Number two behind Eminem

He should be in top 5 or 10

Of course he makes my top ten...Fire!

27 Bliss N Eso

Everyone check these guys out

Austrailian rappers whaat? These guys have some real talent

28 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?

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

29 Brother Ali Ali Douglas Newman, better known by his stage name Brother Ali, is an American rapper, community activist, and member of the Rhymesayers Entertainment hip hop collective.

Rap is about content, and brother ali definitely has it. Just listen to Uncle Sam damn

don't know him but he seems chill

30 Toby Mac
31 Jelly Roll

Give the man a listen and then try n figure out how he's way tf down 31st, top 5er for sure

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

Should be number 1 the greatest

32 Paul Wall

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

33 Haystak

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

Really haystak should be totally on top ten

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

Best eva

34 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.

Pitbull is not white he is cuban. But by the way yes he is an amazing rapper and very creative.

He is awesome all my family loves his songs except my dad (he Hates RAP)

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

35 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.

36 Post Malone Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist.

Garbage mumble rapper like every other trap person today

Eventually Post Malone is going to go down as one of the best rappers ever in the game. He is only 22 by the way...

Doesn't even deserve to be called a rapper, he's just a white Lil Uzi.

He isn't a rapper

37 Suffa
38 Charlie Scene

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)

39 Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

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.

Arguably the worst artist in the history of music

How come everyone else on this list has nice comments but when I get to my favorite rapper the comments are bad stop putting mean comments on my damn girl

She's so good and Sweet

40 Hoodie Allen

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

Used to love this dude!

41 Johnny 3 Tears

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.

His rhymes are so real... Nobody compares

42 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.

Owww, Beastie Boys is so good, actually, Eminem's newly album Kamizake was inspired by one of Beastie Boy's album. But, I have to say, Em is still the greatest rapper, and also, Em is now a Christian!

best white rap group no debate

Beastie Boys should be in the top 5 easily.

Below Lil Xan, why?

43 "Weird Al" Yankovic Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic is an American singer, songwriter, parodist, record producer, satirist, actor, voice actor, music video director, film producer, and author.

Weird Al is not exactly white he is jewish and lots of jews are white but he I actually is also mixed with israeli.

He isn't a rapper. Sure he's parodied some rap songs, but ain't a rapper.

the best

44 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. 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.

45 Apathy

He has extreme lyricism

46 Everlast

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.

How is he not higher on this list. He should be top 5

47 Your Old Droog
48 Witt Lowry

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.

Should be a lot higher

49 Watsky

This man is talented, his lyrics' are deep and meaningful. Such a good rapper, he definitely should be higher on this list. This man deserves more than the fame that he has.

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

50 Diabolic

Epic rapper. Should be higher.

Great lyrics.
His lyrics can easily go toe to toe with those of immortal technique

Yeah, this list sucks. Guys like John Cena, G-Eazy (who is trash), Macklemore, NF and Mac Miller (who are okay but not that good), and MGK who is good but not better are higher than guys like Diabolic, Apathy, Evidence. R.A., Aesop Rock and Vinnie?
