Dumbest Rapper Names

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

The Top Ten

1 Solja Boy Tellem

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

No you are wrong

2 Waka Flocka Flame Waka Flocka Flame Juaquin James Malphurs, better known by his stage name Waka Flocka Flame or simply Waka Flocka, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.

Why in the world would you wanna be called Waka Flocka Flame?! That's so stupid!
Shorty S***stain and Peanut Butter Wolf should definitely be near the top, too.

Just look at the name... It's ridiculous. - Lissie19999

If this isn't ridiculous, then I don't know what is..... - Celestius

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. He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career. He's often criticized for talking ...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 -_-

More like the abbreviation of PIECE OF DICK

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.

Pronounced, Fiddy, not FIFTY.

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

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!
