Next level!

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.

5 UK

They have 21 Savage so duh

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

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 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.

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

Brazilian scene is the best! Djonga, BK, Froid!

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

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

The best after USA

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

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

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

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)

I think kpop rap is the kind of rap that tells mean things

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!

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.

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.

C Tangana, Rosalia, Yung Beef, Kaydy Cain, Rels B, Kidd Keo, Recycled J, Dellafuente, Bejo...

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

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.

They make creative and amazing rap songs

Amazing lyrics
