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 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"

If he was black, he'd be like the next Muhammad Ali

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.

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.

I think MGK should take the number 1 spot because sorry for you fans out there but Eminem is a little out dated he doesn't have that flow anymore like he used to and MGK is the most popular rapper of right now so lets give it to him guys Eminem been holding number 1 a little to long

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.!

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

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.

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 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.

Logic is the G.O.A.T he should be three with Eminem and MGK in front of him.

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

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

Definitely number two after Em, I don't know why G-Eazy or Macklemore are even on this list.

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

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

Ben Haggerty is the most inspiring person, EVER! Thank you 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.

He should be #2. I don't know how people prefer him over 7 other people (I can understand why Eminem is #1 though)

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

Your music helps me with life and my friends real music

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

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

He should be number 1

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.

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

Top 5 easy.

12 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.


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.

13 Lil' Wyte

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

Screw that LIL WYTE should be in the top 10

Top 3

14 John Cena 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.

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. - LemonComputer

The best rapper in history

15 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

Pitbull is a white Cuban means that he's broken barriers in the rap game by becoming the most mainstream artist on this list, even more than Eminem
And he's making hits on the radio every year
He deserves to be number one with everyone in front of him

16 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!

17 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.

Sittin sideways was my childhood memory and still on all 4 s was bada$$

18 Jelly Roll

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

Should be number 1 the greatest

Should be on the top 20 at least.

19 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

20 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.

Didn't find Aesop Rock so I voted for a other great rapper!
