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.

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.

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.

Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. ...read more.

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

The fact that Albanians are white rappers and and on top of their game with that very small population says a lot! And I’m Germany the most popular and successful rappers are Originally from Albania

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

I thin that Albania should be at least on top 10

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.

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.

I'm from the US and I've been curious about international rap since and while now, and the French rap scene is definitely the one I prefer by far!
The french rap scene is very very diversified, there's some songs for everyone. Even some kind that you'll never hear in the US.
They have a lot of talented and original rappers.

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

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

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

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 ...read 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.

South Africa is the best

It has good rappers

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 ...read more.

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

Nigerian should be first among all african countries

Meant to be second or third

Nigeria is the number 1

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

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.

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

United Kingdom

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

No one in the world can top durrty goodz or ghetts. I'm American, and I think that ame rican rap is slowly falling apart. That's why I vote for the uk.

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

The grime scene has some really good rappers, like Wiley

The Contenders

Iran

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

here's a list of some of best persian rappers: Yas, Hichkas, Shayea, Ho3ein, Ali Sorena, Reza Pishro, Sadegh, Bahram, Fadaei, ZedBazi, Behzad Leito, Sijal, Alireza JJ, Shahin Najafi(his rap songs), Sepehr Khalse, Sohrab Mj, Mehrad Hidden, Hamid Sefat, Erfan, Moein Z.

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

Persian rap has really strong music's including shayea's tracks I suggest you to listen to shayea's musics

The best MC of the Turkey (Maybe of the Europe) and rapper, Sagopa Kajmer.

Ceza best midwest ever

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 ...read 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

The best years for Polish rap where between 2000 - 2010. With such artists as Jimson, Szpaaq, Smarki Smark, Pan Wankz. Despite the fact that today rap in Poland is huge, its hard to find a decent rapper.

Large selection of

Its just the best

Netherlands

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

They actually have like a track going in the background with actual music and meaning, also the collabs are so frequent and the best.

They have the best beats and everyone likes it. Even the people that don't live in the Netherlands.

Definitely should be higher. I'd say its about the same level as French rap.

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 . ...read 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?

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

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.

Speaking as an American, Italy should be #2 (and miles ahead of third place).

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

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

Listen to Rns this is organic best Rap that has ever graced the rap hip hop community

You don't know Rap if you haven't heard greek Rap

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

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)

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!

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. ...read more.

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

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

India has the most creative people in the world

Have a great desi hip hop scene... Rap here is boht hard (very hard) bro...

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.

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

I don't care, It is not Swedes who rap, it is in Swedish, It is good but ye.

Well Swedish rap is good, we have rappers like Yung Lean and more

Really cool even though I don't understand it

Damn they are good

Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Lets be honest russia is the bet and I'm british not even russian saying that. Miyagi & endgame are the best and so is kapiskuy gruz. Its probs 1. Russia 2. Sweden 3. America

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

Perfect rapping. Far from nowadays MUMBLE RAP.

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

Best lyrics and best underground rappers

The best RAP of the world

Portugal Portugal (est.1152), officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located mostly on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. 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 ...read more.

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!

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

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

Best hip hop contrie in 2019/20

Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Canada should probably be #2. Drake, Partynextdoor, Tory Lanez, the Weekend. A lot of global artists that (besides the U.S.) none of the rest of these countries can really hold water to.

Most of the votes here are just patriots. Toronto in particual may have become the most essential hip hop cities in the world.

Doesn't get much attention, though that is starting to change.
The underground hip-hop scene in Canada is unbeaten.

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