Dumbest Rapper Names

You may like their songs, but you have to admit, the names are stupid.

The Top Ten

1 Soulja Boy Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

I seriously don't understand the difference between soulja boy and tellem. Seriously what is the difference? Also the name is retarded, because it has no meaning to the name, come on give a meaning.

For sure I agree and its not just his name thats random but the things he sings as well. who says crank that harry potter or sponge bob!

Nas and Eminem and 2pac don't deserve to be on this list like Nasir Jones and M&M Marshall Mathers. Soulja is a stupid name... No doubt

Shorty S***stain and Peanut Butter Wolf should definitely be near the top, too.

3 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop artist and is often referred to as one of the worst rappers of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, ...read more.

Stupid Name that shows no creativity, He doesn't even write his own lyrics (and the Lyrics in his songs are stupid as well), his voice sounds like he's been choking on that cough syrup he's been addicted to...

He's 30-something years old and he's still calling himself little. Bow wow was originally known as lil bow wow but changed his name over time as he got older.

Hate his name. His music sucks. Never just start with gangsta rap music then switch to making love songs.

The reason he calls himself lil is that he is short guys, we all know that he is not that young

4 P. Diddy

sounds like a 3 year old telling his mom he has to go to the bathroom. "mama I gotta p diddy. "

They don't know what to name themseLves these days... P. Diddy? WTF IS THAT?!?!? - rebeLLious

It means puff daddy, he is the puff daddy, it means he is the king of the chronic (he smokes weed). Not that I'm saying he is a good rapper but at least show the full version of his name -_-

5 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

Might as well call himself one cent

What a stupid name. But, I have to hand it to the guy; he did really well in the hip-hop game and in pop culture while having the dumbest name of all time! Now that is an accomplishment.

If you actually knew why he called himself that then you would be amazed

It's because his raps are worth 50 cents. - CharismaticKat

6 Vanilla Ice Vanilla Ice Robert Matthew Van Winkle, known by his stage name, Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor and television host.

Lil Wayne and 50 cent are alright, Eminem is okay, and I find no problem with T-pain, now Vanilla Ice, wow that is so stupid, I also agree for soulja boy, and flava flav

Not particularly a good rap name to use. Vanilla? Ice? - marlonacott

That's a name that should be given to ice cream or a male homosexual stripper
Also he's not that famous

Because I only know "Ice Ice Baby"

7 Peanut Butter Wolf

Holy god! What the hell is a peanut butter wolf! A wolf made of peanut butter? Or a wolf that eats it! Seriously this is the most ridiculous name I have ever heard, and probably the most DUMB name ever, especially for a rapper!

How is this not top of the list this is the funniest rapper name I have ever heard of. It sounds like an idiot thought of his favourite things and just put the words next to each other.

Are you serous?! There is actually a rapper named peanut butter wolf?!?! What is that even supposed to be?! No wonder I've never learned of this weird ass rapper

This sounds like it would be the name of some weird obscure YouTuber.
