Which country is the best rapper country? Choose and add

The Top Ten

1 America

Rap is an American game.
U.S inspired almost every country in our world.

It is best because of 2pac, Eminem and all underground hiphop artists.

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.

2 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 more.

With influence from the US, North africa, and of course france itself, french rap is one of the best in the world, featuring a wide variety of different styles and types.

French rap is fire compared to most other European countries

France is the second biggest Hip hop market after the US, should definitely be #2 on this list

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.

3 Morocco

It's the 1st arabic and african rap music big up

Super underrated...!. in terms of the views, the profits... but the best
#america we are coming

It's a countries of next level

America, we're coming soon..

4 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. 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!

5 UK

They got Skepta, JME, Dizzee rascal, Wiley, Kano and Stormy. Plus they the second biggest scene after America

They have 21 Savage so duh

Don't even start, there is no comparison with the rap nowadays

The grime scene has some really good rappers, like Wiley

6 Senegal Senegal (French: Sénégal), officially the Republic of Senegal (French: République du Sénéga), is a country in West Africa . Senegal is bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest . more.

Rap is a way to help people by denying the problems they live in. Rappers have a great movment called 'Y EN A MARRE" supported by the senegalese people.

Where is senegal? - pouria_mt

7 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Turkish rap is definitely the best, not enough people know about it though, it’s underrated, but it is still the best

Ceza best midwest ever

I don't know man - pouria_mt

Sagopa and Ceza are best.

8 Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. more.

Ever heard TBA,Hellbanianz,Babastars, Mozzik or Don Phenom. Just listen to some of their songs. You will understand.

Albanian Rappers are pretty good

I think albanian rappers and kosovo rappers are the best after usa

Best Rap in the world I think the only country that has a better rap is USA fact

9 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

Italy took American hip hop culture and interpreted trough its own centuries-old culture producing some extremely fine pieces of music

Bro this list is so wrong I’m from America and I literally like Italian rap more than any country. Seriously these people have obviously not listened to it but Italian rappers are so talented especially because Italian language is very difficult to make into rap. Words are weird and rhyming is hard. List sucks.

Italian rap is the top. What a retarded list

Italy ha THE BEST RAP! THIS LIST IS SOOO WRONG (no offense but it just is ) how is Morocco third and the country that is second in Europe 26 when Germany is third that in a European list Germany is 6th

10 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

I'm not sure where the "funk" dance music originated but my first time hearing it was in Brazil.. it's a latino version of Americas "Twerk" dance music.. If Brazil continues to push the hiphop scene eventually the 2 will merge and cause an outbreak in america. We're anxiously waiting for the one artist who collaborates globally and by we, I mean most of New York City.

I live in America but I will admit many people are sleeping on latino-rap. Brazil is the hot spot.

Racionais Mc's are one of the greatest, if not the greatest, rap group of all time and Brazil's hip hop is still growing. It should be worlg famous

We the best,no dicussion.

The Contenders

11 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

South Africa has a variety of potential world class acts, who have their own unique style and sound. The Hip Hop sounds are vibrant and refreshing from repetitive styles you hear from other places. Notable artists include Kwesta, AKA,Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C.

South Africa has rappers that can compete with the best international artists,artists like AKA,Cassper Nyovest and younger artists like Nasty C and A-Reece.

It has good rappers

South Africa is the best

12 Nigeria Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall more.

You guys can't be serious with this poll! Nigeria is the Jerusalem of African Hip Hop

Meant to be second or third

Nigeria is the number 1

Nigeria is supposed to be placed on 1st 5th

13 Tanzania Tanzania, officially the United Republic of Tanzania or simply U.R.T, is a large country in Eastern Africa within the African Great Lakes region.

We keepin it real outchea so proud of my country..najivunia kuwa mtanzania

14 Iran

It must be after america
You don't know anything from persian rap

As an musician I can say in some ways like
Meaning of music lyrics Iran should be the top 2nd and in some other ways like Beat and Rhythm and Rhyme they could be some where like 4th or even 3rd in the world but the point is rap in their country is
illegal and if you consider that for sure you will understand Iran could be the top 2nd after america

Iranian rappers are so talented, they are really so good, the text and beat, etc. And also persian rap is so meaningful and in the meaning it's in the top 2

In the concept and meaning Persian rap is in top 3.
Yas,hichkas,bahram, rez and zed bazi are some of the examples.

15 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately more.

In my opinion one of the best rap in the world. A really big scene with a lot of good rappers with diverse styles

Large selection of

Its just the best

Yeah, Quebonafide is the best

16 Netherlands

Its very very good it has to be number 2 or 3 because I think us is still better

Why is this even a question? The Netherlands should be number one!

Their flow is on point. And it's so good to turn up to

Definitely nothing beats these tunes, the texts are also really good but most people wont understand since it is Dutch of course.

17 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Greek rap culture is very much underground with a few mainstream hitwonders but always pure and with great intellegence. Strong bars with melancholic beats. Authenticity is key. The Greek rap scene is one of a kind. Beter than dutch I think from a lyrical standpoint. But not so good in recognition. They miss a unique sound like dutch, french and german rap have. Anyway for me top 15 maybe top 10 for sure

Greek rap for the win - blackphoenix

The best after USA

Greek Rap is amazing man. You have to look up Light, Slogan, and Ypo

18 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

It's not k pop, which confuses people in America and other countries. Korean hiphop involves a lot of lyrical, trap, and singing rappers that are arguably better than some American rappers.

Hip Hop's becoming more trendy and mainstream recently. Many youngsters in Korea can rap at high level since so many of them dream of becoming a rap star

Hip Hop's de definitely growing in Korea. It's becoming more mainstream and there are a lot of famous youngsters who can rap at such high level. (Thanks to the show: show me the money)

Hip-hop is a large thing in Korea now. With famous rappers like Jay Park, they are really good.

19 Slovakia

Slovakia has amazing rappers who rap about important stuff. The best rapper is Rytmus.

A lot of talented hip hop artists like Separ, Rytmus, Ego, Kali or another artists.

Tracks aren't "flat" they are lyric perfection.. In the track slovak rapper don't talk only about bitches and money.. almost every track is about some Common Problem.. like Rytmus - Povolanie Syn (Its about kids who were born to the rich families and they think they are better than everyone else) Kali - Džungla/Jungle (its about politician who think they are gods + about Nazi's in parlament) amd there is a lot more of this stuff.

20 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

After USA no country is of our level and neither they can be we are so superior in hip-hop then others and if you want to compare then see the views on Hindi rap songs

India is started to have some good rappers. By 2021 we will have more rappers.

Hip hop is growing at an unbelievable rate in India. Some of the rappers who represent India are RAFTAAR, DIVINE, NAEZY AND BRODHA V. Even I'm into Rapping

Miyagi and endgame, kaspiskuy gruz, Guf are the best. 2nd after the US

22 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain. Its territory also includes more.

Good lyricists, and most rappers are real and down to earth, they don't usually fake a gangsta persona or flex gold chains.

Portuguese rappers have amazing word play, rhyme scheme, and what they talk about meaningful stuff (at least the vast majority anyway) which, to me, are very important skills for a rapper to posses!

Portuguese rap is the best, they have a great word play and rhyme scheme!

the best

24 Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.

Toronto's underground scene is insanely underrated and is on the rise

Toronto underground is the best!

It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state more.

Because this country is so good at rapping.

Big rap. Puya. BUG Mafia, Cheloo, Paraziti...

Bug Mafia and Parazitii are best underground rapers in europe I think and the Trap (satra benz,killa fonic, keed, nane ) are still best. I'm not retarded like italians to say my country have better hiphop then americans but for sure romanian hip hop is the best in europe, still the french and german trap are cool but I prefer the romanian.
