Dumbest Rappers of All Time

The Top Ten

1 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.

His meaningless lyrics about cash, hoes, and drugs are not even understandable because of his outrageously raspy voice. All of his songs are basically the same, with just a different beat. The only rapper worse than him is maybe Lil Jon. If you want to listen to real rap, choose Eminem, Tupac, Biggie, Nas, or Dr. Dre.

First off, I have to admit, that I do like Lil' Wayne AS A FEATURED ARTIST and nothing more. He definitely adds good guest verses to Kelly Rowland's "Motivation" and Kevin Rudolph's "Let It Rock". I think if I had to listen to an entire song of just his voice, I'd end up dead, spazzin out on my living room floor with one eye twitching. His liberal use of auto-tune on EVERYTHING is enough to want your ears sewn shut. Said use of auto-tune, makes his already barely intelligible voice and lyrics sound like an alien language that no one, not even himself could decipher. Lastly, as has already been mentioned by others is that his lyrical themes are so redundant and predictable that the public knows what his next song is about before he's even written it. And his lyrics aren't even clever (most of the time) like a rapper's should be, just straight, direct, words with no underlying meaning or metaphorical translation. A rapper is supposed to have clever, slick, and (gasp) lyrics that make ...more - theOpinionatedOne

One word; Overrated. - BreakFastBeast2005

Cliché rapper. When rap was brought from Jamaica to the United States in the 1980s, there was no one showing girls, cars or money. It was pure lyric running through a beat.
To say that Lil Wayne has lyricism would be the same thing as saying that a banana has wings...
Stupid rapper.

3 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.

He would even say 1 + 1 = 3

One of the worst but who should be on here is Honey G or is she more comical rapper? YouTube The Honey G Show.

Listen to crank that. And he also changed his name to smooky. What the hell is that?

He's by far the dumbest individual I've ever seen in my life. Stupid tattoos, skinny and malnourished but acts like a tough guy, horrible music, and he's got a big mouth.

4 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

He wouldn't last a minute in a gang war

Half Jewish, half retarded. Nobody in the rap game likes him, plus he steals people's music. Screw him

He raps bout the life he ain't living...
ex: "bring the clip back empty"
~Going Bad Meek Mill ft. Drake

I don't understand people take this guys side, I don't hate him because I try not to hate people but I hate his music and how he tries to act like he's a G. Drake to me tries to hard and acts completely different when interviewed, and he didn't start from. The bottom because you need a certain income to live in the neighborHood he lived in. Drake also tries to get his street crid by throwing whine bottles and catching bodies like that.

5 Lil Jon Lil Jon Jonathan Smith, better known by his stage name Lil Jon, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, DJ and actor.

This guy is garbage!

Just a bunch of hollering in songs. How this guy has fans, I will never know,

No skill. Nothing cool or hip about him. Shouldn't even be considered a rapper. Pathetic, Lil Jon.

He is the goat of crunk

7 Chief Keef Chief Keef Keith Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

When you post a picture of yourself getting head and lose your instagram account as a result, I am sorry you deserve a spot on this list! - 300ChiefKeef

He's an immature little brat. I mean, Katy Perry just said she didn't like his song (and rightfully so, may I add) and he flippin' threatened her. He should just go die and make the world a better place. To the person below- yes, I would, then I would laugh at his pathetic, petty insults.

Chief keef is absolutely the worst rapper ever to touch this earth, people who disagre is probably smokin what he is before he goes in the booth.

The inventor of Drill Music is on this mf list?! I'm done. He realer than most rappers, but he #5 on this list? Okay. None of you would say this to his face. You don't know about the hood. Just a bunch of people on they computers. Hope you meet him one day.

8 2 Chainz 2 Chainz Tauheed Epps, also known as 2 Chainz, is an American rapper. He is more popular when contributing guest verses to people like Kanye West, B.o. B, and Lil Wayne. His latest album, ColleGrove, came out earlier this year.

He sure is different...

He's a straight dumbass he has no lyrics that take any thought to come up with, one of his lines is "they ask me how I come up with this s*** in the studio" if anyone actually asked that they should seek mental help right away because all his songs consist of is "f****** bitches and hoes"

I think he should be tied with first. He got his ass whooped by Dollar Dollar so he changed his name and all of a sudden he's the most heard mainstream rapper. You should've quit when you got your ass whooped. What kind of name is Two pistols? Even your name makes you sound stupid and now when you change it you get all these props. Get the hell out the game

I wish being illiterate, and being famous for it was a crime. Listening to this guy makes me want to pull out my own eardrums. He always has to be featured in some song, and screw it up. His lyrics are awful.

Even actually mental "retarded" people are better than her, at least they're nice to people. This thing is a piece of garbage who needs to burn in hell.

14 P. Diddy

I don't really care for Diddy. When I use to go to Stanley Kaplan agency he use to send us on music videos. I accepted to the offer to be in Puffy Comb Music video even though everyone said he's an ass. I had one of the most unforgettable experience ever he treated us worse then a clans man. In my opinion he is the biggest slave driver I have ever met and I never got paid. I you realize no extras wants to be in his video that experience him before. After that whole encounter I never brought his music never watch his shows I like his coconut Cirok but I had stop drinking it once I found out it was from him. He is a messed Up Human being a skin head ebony.

I don't like him because he raps fast for slow songs. And because I love 2pac

He's THE DAMP RICHEST RAPPER NOW. How can he be dumb

Is this a joke? Diddy actually has a lot of skill! And above Soulja Boy?

I wouldn't mind the fool if he'd just quit feeling himself. This guy thinks he's something special, man this guy needs to learn his fans got him where he is today before he pisses them off. Also marrying Kim Kardashian? He thinks marrying a white girl with a big butt and no brains makes him successful... Black women should be offended. Need I quote "leave yo ass for a white girl" from one of his songs? Rap is all about being real with where you come from, rap took poor black men off the streets, gave the black kids hope for a better life that were living in the ghettos trying to stay out of real gangs. Kanye needs to humble himself. I like seeing people make money and become successful but I can't stand the ones that think they're suddenly above everyone. And just to be clear I'm cool with interracial love, but this guy got in it for all the wrong reasons. Marrying white doesn't make you more successful

He's a fool

So dumb so fascist so can't rap married Kim kardashion named his kid north west this dude needs help$

So stupid, wants to run for president but he doesn't even know about politics.
