The Top Ten

1 America

This one is very obvious. I am British and even I have to admit that the USA has had the best rappers, although it is also the home to the very worst.

No one else comes ANYWHERE close. Not to be racist, but if anyone did come close, it would be like South Africa being better an making Anime than Japan. Or like China making better Reggae music than Jamaica. Real Rap is an American Game. Eminem, JAY Z, Tupac, Biggie, etc.

No other country is close... Look at all the American artists. This award definitely belongs to America

While nowadays USA mainstream rap is the worst in the world,underground hip-hop make USA rap the best it's there's the originality and the great lyrics are.

3 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Americsn rappers are the original and the one with the realest rappers, therefore I voted for USA.

German rappers are almost always entertainment and hardly authentic with too many wannsbe thug rappers. But they have an unusually high number of multisyllabic rappers. There are several rappers (best may be Kollegah and SpongeBozz) who hardly have less than five rhyming syllabics. There's one song by Kollegah from his "Hoodtape Vol. 2" mixtape where he uses the same rhyme structure throughout the entire song (meaning he finds about 50 rhymes for the same sentence). They have a high technical skill and there are many doubletime rappers like Tech N9ne, as well as very clever and intelligent word plays and double entendres where you have to think for a few seconds before you get them. And in the early to mid 2010s, there was such excessive amount of all those qualities you felt completely blown away when you bought the newest rap albums.

Also, I love that many German hip hop ...more - Martin_Canine

While infested with many wannabe gangstas, at this point the german rap scene surpassed every other one when it comes to deep,lyrical and multisyllabil rap. Moreover it has a very vital underground. It is just sad that many mainstream artists still try to imitate trends from the US and France.

Next level!

4 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

The French rap appeared in early 90s, while it was already very popular on the other side of the Atlantic. Mostly of gangsta lifestyle inspiration, it reached its golden age from 94 to 98 with record breaking selling albums released every month. By the new millenium, this music was already very popular and listened by all social classes of French population. Disc labels were looking for artists that would open up the industry to a wider audience, and its gangsta spirit had already vanished.

1) USA, 2) France for sure. Is THE Hip Hop European Nation.

It's the 1st European Hip Hop Nation.

France are just, for me number 2 after America I think

? Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

They've got a still developing but thriving rap battle scene. Views are increasing and the rappers are improving rapidly. There has been great Arabic rap coming out of Egypt for quite a while now, though. Some of the names being (Rushzilla, Sphynx, Mc Amin, Abyusif, Medhat, etc). Even the famous Egyptian actor "Ahmed Mekky" raps in Arabic and garners arguably the most views for Arabic rap in the Middle East. (Side note: Bahraini rapper Flipperachi is the only one who has surpassed Ahmed Mekky's highest viewed video in the Arabic rap scene as far as I know).

Jay Park. Zico. Keith Ape. Beenzino. The list goes on and on; Korean rap is absolutely amazing and holds a special place in my heart. Even the simple Soundcloud rappers from this country are suprisingly really good. Really deserves to be higher on the list!

Algeria 1st bro

To be honest Algerian rap is way ahead of the Morrocan rap, from Lotfi to Karim to Muslim nation, these are all amazing rappers and Lotfi I believe was one of the earliest(maybe even the first) Arabic rappers, his lyrics are all amazing, no swearing and no flexing, all of his songs talk about meaningful and Important subjects, many songs talk about the suffering of others or the mischief of those who run the country.
Of course no offense to our Morrocan brethren.
