Dumbest Rapper Names

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

The Top Ten

1 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

terrible name!
why is nas there? its just nasir shortened

2 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.

Sounds like a tongue twister. He must've chose his stage name while being high on weed.

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.

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

3 Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own ...read more.

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.

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...

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?!?!?

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 -_-

What kind of name is this. It makes him sound stupid or like he's a baby or sumthing! Why would he choose a name like this?

5 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.

Ha! His name is 50 Cent because his music is only worth 50 cents. Therefore, this is a very fitting stage name for him.

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

6 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?

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

Can I have some VANILLA ICE cream please?

7 Lil Poopy

Uh...what went on this kid's head when he thought to call himself this?

"Hey, I'm gonna call myself Lil Poopy! That's not gonna get made fun of." Sorry, kid.. hate to break it to ya, but that was a bad choice.

By far the worst rapper name ever! I don't care that he was only 8 years old, it's still a horrible name for anyone!

This man really names him self after doodoo lmao I'm suffering from internal bleeding I'm laughing so hard

He's retarded

8 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

I am to busy to think about why his name is dumb, instead I'm just rolling on the floor DYING from laughter.

9 Shorty S***stain

(I HAVE NOT HEARD OF THIS RAPPER OF MUSIC BEFORE) But if this is REALLY a rapper and his 'chosen' name, than this is dumb! SO STOP, SO HE'S SHORT AND A S*STAIN?! Well done!

Showing how much he values himself and how much his audience should value him. Nice job.

Has to be the stupidest name ever.

No doubt.Shorty sh*tstain from the wu-tang clan affiliate group brooklyn zu has the worst name.

10 Ol' Dirty Bastard

Really? SERIOUSLY!?!?! How dumb. Ol' Dirty Bastard is a GREAT name, isn't it? Don't you just love it? Who wouldn't wanna be called an old unwashed freak?

Very funny and humiliating.

I love his music, but his name is what really bothers me. REST IN PEACE DIRTY!

Although I have too much respect for him but he haves the most stupid stage name in the whole music industry! R.I. P

The Newcomers

? Biggie Smalls

The Contenders

11 Snoop Dogg Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., (born, October 20, 1971) known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper, actor, record producer, and television personality from Long Beach, California.

At Least It's Better Than Snoop Lion

Snoop dogg is a great name its from charlie brown snoop lion is dumb but dogg is great

He's named this because his mom used to call him that and he used his childhood nickname people don't say nothing if u don't know nothing

His mediocre name fits his bad music and awful "voice."

Don't come for my boo! Y'all better back off!

terrible no talent garbage noise.

13 Birdman

A dumb name after a homosexual superhero from the old Cartoon Network shows!

Well, he did kiss his "son" lil wayne on the lips. So maybe when he decided on this name he was trying to tell us something? - DaWyteNight

He also has a nickname baby. Really? What grown man calls himself baby?

Better than Baby. That was just weird. Wht kinda grown man calls himself Baby and encourages other grown men to call him that?

Naming himself after a homosexual superhero from an old Adult Swim T.V. show.

Game spent most of his childhood in foster care (up until high school) even though he knew all of his brothers and sisters. Since 2002, Game ...read more.

It's not a bad name. It just sounds like anything else you would normally say

And we all just lost it

Stupid! More like the lame

The name, is the game, and it's so lame.

15 Baby Bash

it sounds like a person who bashes in babies heads.

Why would make your rapper name completely sound like something completely perverted is completely beyond me.

Let's vote this so that Eminem gets lower in the list!

Who did the baby bash dis time?

16 Booty Smackinz

This guy must've been pretty stupid to come up with this.

Only a horny person would come up with this name.

I don't even wanna know...

This is beyond humiliating.

17 Baby Boy Da Prince

I was just about to vote for Juicy J until I saw this. WHAT KIND OF NAME IS THIS!?

That's probably his real name.

"hi baby boy the prince your name is pretty stupid" is what his mother always sais to him. Its a super duper f******* dumb name don't we all know

18 Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American rapper and pop music artist from Carol City, Florida. He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

How do you hate on his name? Seriously, his name comes from his hometown, that's loyalty if you ask me

Well The Names Better Than Peanut Butter Wolf. Peanut butter wolf wow

Florida is a state not a town

I actually think it's kind of clever.

19 Chamillionaire Hakeem Seriki, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Houston, Texas, better known by his stage name Chamillionaire.

Was previously thought to have evolved from Charmander the Pokemon.

Sucks to become a chamillionaire if that worth isn't held by gold bars.

HE IS the CHAMILLITARY MAN OK he has a pretty dumb name but you have to admit this guy can rap faster than Usain Bolt on steroids!

20 Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper and entrepreneur born on September 14, 1973 in New York City. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

It's how you say nose in Romanian, although I'm not sure of the spelling.

It's his actual name though so it doesn't count as a dumb rap name. Nasir, Nas for short. - RobertWisdom

perhaps he has no idea...

It's short for his name nasir

Well his name sounds Nas-ty... Get it...

21 Lil Uzi Vert Symere Woods, better known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American hip hop recording artist and songwriter.

I actually figured out, if you say Lil Uzi Vert fast enough, it comes out as Lucifer. So, it's a little bit clever. A little of in depth knowledge about Uzi makes it way more interesting, in fact.

This name is the stupidest name for a rapper and it suits him because he sucks has a rapper he would be good as a noble mumbler

His name is retarded and it makes no sense and he is ugly.

I laughed when I heard his name first.

22 Kardinal Offishall

Makes absolutely no sense

He's an official for the St. Louis Cardinals?

Not a bad name if it sounded like the bite-sized chocolate candy.

Its gotta do with his real name. Marshall Mathers. M^^M. Eminem. Plus you need to have an original name, and this is as original as it gets.

Shut up guys he rocks, Why is he on this list, wow he is the best rapper ever. If you say bo to that you must be stupid

Eminem is a very creative rap name, who the heck put it on this list?

24 Pimp Daddy Welfare

WHAT? Like welfare for pimp daddys? Seriously...
