Top Ten Countries With the Best Hip Hop / Rap ArtistsWhich country is the best rapper country? Choose and add
Moroccan rappers are doing the great things they're doing despite the absence of an industry that would support them. It is known that literally a 100% of them boosted their music career with their own means before getting signed anywhere, and those who are signed are few because of how underrated they are.
If you could just go beyond the language barrier and listen to the overall musicality of their products, you will most likely agree with me and with all the comments here that Moroccan rappers deserve more support than they already get, and I'm talking about international support. What most of them do with their own means, in other countries they do it with full support of their labels, so just imagine the extraordinary things Moroccan rappers could do if they got that same support.
There is so much versatility on the scene and a lot of the rappers have amazing flows. Moroccan rap is definitely underrated, so many artists should've taken the charts by storm already, if only it weren't for the language barrier. Hopefully more people will be like me and appreciate the talent so much they will want to learn Arabic.
Moroccan rap well well well.. pretty underrated globaly due to the dialect but the energy and vibe coming out of it is insane, and also there is a certain diversity a lot of styles, hope soon the Moroccan rap will get the attention needed because rappers here can really do something big with better opportunities
Moroccan rap is sooo good! If you can get passed the language barrier, you'll find the flow and sound very very good! Not to mention that most of the music videos I've seen coming from morocco are extremely well done!

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.
Albania is a very authentic country, with real slums and financial troubles, which makes its rap full of emotions.
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
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.
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.
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.
France is the second biggest Hip hop market after the US, should definitely be #2 on this list
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 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 is the best
It has good rappers
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.
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
We keepin it real outchea so proud of my country..najivunia kuwa mtanzania
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.
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
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.
Iranian rappers mostly sing rap in their own persian language, technically they are perfect rappers,
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
Okay Ceza, Sagopa and Ezhel superb rappers but seriously why nobody talk about Contra?
The best MC of the Turkey (Maybe of the Europe) and rapper, Sagopa Kajmer.
Ceza best midwest ever
Sagopa and Ceza are best.
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?
Should be Usa,Canada,Italy
I mean the numbers speak for itself rappers from USA are making features with italian rappers like sfera ebbasta he has a new album of features with american rappers.
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).
How is possible that Italian rap is 13 place? And Moroccan rap is first place? Thi list is wrong as
Polish trap is exploding right now. Check out Zabson, Alberto, Bialas, or Chillwagon. I can't keep up with the high quality productions.
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
Algeria has a strong rap and Algerian rap is distinguished in lyrics and beautiful flow from other countries, and we recently saw that it is witnessing a great development in terms of visuals, views, and production companies and new rappers. Among the most prominent names in our Algerian rap are didin canon 16, flenn, phobia and savage plug and trap king ... etc. Algeria is considered the first Arab country to enter rap
Real rap always lyrical with a message just love how the rappers flow with d beat plus with little money they are making a buzz
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
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.
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
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 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...
It have best hip hop dancers in world
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.
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.
I'm not swedish, but something about the language and the aura makes it soo good
I'm swedish and in my opinion swedish music sucks with some exceptions
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
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 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
