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"

Yeah 100% percant he is the best white rapper ever and he is not only the best white rapper ever HE IS THE BEST RAPPER EVER

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.

He's building faster then anyone

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.!

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

''Always lit, yeah I'm never sober.''

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

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.

Yelawolf is by far hands down THE most talented artist in rap & hip-hop today!...of all time? Well not yet but notice that I say YET. His verbal flavor is like no others. The mixing of lyrical melodies into his New South style of music is absolutely brilliant. He definitely raps & sings about real stuff & it seems to come original & straight from his heart which nobody can duplicate. H.B.

5 Logic Logic Born on January 22, 1990, 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 become the most successful more.

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

Why isn't he in the top 3? He should be in 2nd because he has very good flow, he can rap faster than anyone on this list (Except Eminem), His songs are very catchy, and he really cares about his fans. When I was waiting for his third studio album (Everybody) I heard that he released a mixtape (Bobby Tarantino) so then his fans can have something to listen to while we wait for the 3rd album. Also his fastest song was 8.8 syllables per second. That is faster than every rapper on this list (Except Eminem). So I say he should be in 2nd.

Deserves #1 man. really does

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

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

He is best rapper alive he should be number 1

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

This man is amazing especially his new album gemini

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.

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.

Honestly the best, keeps it real. Don't compare him to Eminem though and saying he's the "Christian Eminem" NF is himself.

Listen to NF every day. And always will.

9 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.

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 needs to be replaced with yelawolf

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

11 Andy Mineo 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 - 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

The only rappers who deserve to top Andy Mineo:
Eminem(because...he's eminem)
Mac Miller.
(maybe) NF
that's it. this man has his own flow, style, music, history, EVERYTHING

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.

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

What? American Flag can rap? - Jancukman777

Jep, Cena is the best! - UndisputedLunatic

14 Lil' Wyte

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

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

Lil wyte should definitely be in the too t are you serious now

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 Aesop Rock

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.

The dark horse of the turn of the century, with no gimmicks

This guy should be 1. His vocabulary level is like none other, not there just because and the way he formulates his esoteric lyricism is beyond what any other artist here could ever do. P.S Lil Dicky and Mac Miller are JEWISH.

17 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

One of the best rappers ever

18 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.

Basically a Dirty South legend, should be much higher on this list.

Been influencing rap before some of these guys were born. Top 5

#3 or 2

19 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.

Definitely WAY under rated! Jelly and Haystak are by far two of the best white rappers out!

20 Lil' Dicky

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 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.

19? How? - Jon8201
