Top 10 Greatest Deceased Rappersthug4life
The Top Ten
Yes Tupac was someone who rapped about drugs and all that gangsta stuff, but he also rapped about change and how bad this world is. He is inspirational, he wasn't the most talented rapper but his lyrics and messages on some of his songs makes him an inspiration and I just wish that Pac and Biggie were still here. There was no need for the rivalry from 2 of the greatest rappers of all time whose lives and careers were cut short. RIP
More than a rapper, a poet, a social commentator and a man trying make sense of his world. A thoughtful and gentle spirit - RIP
Tupac was a legend who touched everybody with his words wisdom smile charisma and respect and in my eyes will ALWAYS be the best rapper/poet of all time
Best rapperV 25 Comments
A very good rapper whose songs made some sense and entertained people with his lyrical ways and was a very big inspiration because he changed his life around, he realised he didn't need to be a hustler, he needed to be a good person.
RIP BIGGIE - roblist
Big change rap point blank he made the best raps I have ever heard and change rap for the east coast and made it really over here on the east coast and all the rappers could not hang with him 2albums and he made history as one of the best rappers ever to live on earth
I respect most of the rappers on this list but Biggie is the best out of them all even Tupac.
I don’t like rap but I love whatever Biggie did. It’s the flow from a big bro!V 7 Comments
This one is another of those that will never be forgotten they the ones that used to create real hip hop. The real question what happened to hip hop
Big L's Freestyles just smooth. He know what to do on the mic. Amazing flow, amazing style, amazing lyrics. He is top 2 or even top 1 rapper. Just take a listen to his music. Take a deeper look in it and you'll realize that he is way too underrated. Put your Ls up.
Crazy lyrical. And freestyles
Big L, Better than Eazy E I would even go to say he is better than Tupac. Equal to Biggie though., Give him a listen.V 7 Comments
Eazy E didn't even die from aids he was murdered with injection, how could someone die from aids a months after getting the disease, why then didn't his pregnant wife encountered the diseases with the baby now... The best the west have ever seen no disrespecting pac..
Eazy E was the cheekiest rapper of all time. His music just made me happy and it also made me smarter on the streets.
Eazy E didn't write his own lyrics and had a very basic flow, so no he is not the best at all. - DaWyteNight
Eazy E was a true g. LET THE LEGEND LIVE!V 7 Comments
Thank god somebody has some knowledge outside form the most known artists
Rest in Peace Pun your legacy shall live on - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
The flow is amazing like biggie

Eminem and Proof are almost the only rappers who always are making fun together, the best songs from Eminem where with Proof written, cause then the lyrics when crazy that's what they always were together, just freaking crazy, I love that..
PS. It isn't bulls*** whey Eminem went 4 years out.. Proof was the best friend you can imagine he said.. he's right..
Not riding anyone's jock here because Proof and Pac are equally skilled, but Proof never had the fame of Pac. However Proof was arguably the greatest freestyles of his time and his delivery is insane. Best hype man in the game too. Dudey at least deserves the number 3 spot
Proof is such a good rapper and a great freestyler he and eminem were a fantastic team rip
Proof left us very soon :(V 4 Comments
Ason unique. Best Wu-Tang rapper whether dead or alive. Some of his songs were deeper than Tupac, his flow was sometimes more fluent than Biggie, and his style was always amazing. Personally I think his songs had the best beats of all dead rappers. Just listen to "Dirty the Moocher. "
Different than anyone else in a good way
One of The Wu tang Clan founders he was a good rapper in the group but in 2004 he died of a drug overdose in his LABEL in New York city
He had skills, I just did'nt like his voice.
Nate Dogg was amazing, one of the best vocals of all time in the rap game. Cousin of Snoop, should be #4
"It ain't a hit till Nate Dogg spit." Regulate in peace, G. You are missed.

I cried because he died he was my favorite rapper he inspired me so much the people that killed him they killed him because he had 75,000 dollars in his bag but why can't they work for their money and don't kill just don't kill people important to others cause they are the best and favorites and I loved his songs
The reason he's this low is because he just died. But yeah, he's a great rapper. Sad that people only realized he's a genius after he died - venomouskillingmachine
Great rapper sad he died
It's sad that it took his death to make tons of people to realize him, X has been my favorite rapper since I discovered him in 2015/16. I'll probably cry through the whole skins album. R.I.P. XV 6 Comments
He is the best dead rapper and in the top 5 rappers of all time. Its sad he had to die at only 19 by unknown causes. - wiz
Goat and one of the originals in the trap scene, shame the dude went down
I meant to say clutching his chest
Better than tupacV 5 Comments
Guru is probably top 25 who EVER did it. He's definitely top 5 ten dead.
This guy is a top 10 rapper who LIVED, he should easily be top 3 here
Guru needs to be at least top 5 ahead of proof for sure
Deserves at least top 5, lyrically insane, unique style and part of one of the best hip hop duo’s ever (Gang Starr)V 3 Comments
Um hello... Waterfalls, unpretty, what about your friends, she didn't only rap she sang an wrote all the songs I just mentioned. she should've been on this list a long time ago.
She should at least be in the top 5. 8 months after Aaliyah died in a plane crash, she followed in a car accident. She was great friends with Tupac and they both died horribly. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Now Lopes and 2pac are back together, having more fun in what I call Hip Hop Heaven. - helloitsme
I use to love tlc and I still do today! Lisa " left eye " was an amazing rapper. She did'nt rap about drugs, private parts, or any of the other things other female artist rap about today. REST IN PEACE LISA " LEFT EYE " LOPES, NEVER FORGOTTEN ALWAYS REMEMBERED IN OUR HEARTS. LEFT EYE LEGACY, TLC4EVA.
He was positive about his messages on every album. He didn't have to curse. He threw some of the slamming videos and concerts. RIP Heavy D and Trouble T-Roy.
Articulate, insightful, introspective and always in the pocket. Somebody explain to me why he isn’t on everybody’s list. Totally underrated. On the real, very few, alive or dead could mess with him.
Mac Dre is the first rapper to ever to record a whole album over the phone.
Everyone respects Dre for the uniqueness and ability to fit any style
Mac dre had a very unique style and has one of the most loyal fans
Dre was the hardest and will stay the hardest everV 2 Comments
Whoever is doing this voting don't know your hip hop history
Number 1 on my list. Hip Hop legend!
Price for the win - vizual_prophet
One of the best
He was wise beyond his years. A mislead leader. His early death will saddened all who listin. The youth missed out on a true poetic legend.
UGK member comes from my city HOUSTON he gained major recognition with Bun B in UGK
This guy here from h-TOWN my city he a legend wish he was still alive but his music never dies
UNDERGROUND KING OF THE SOUTH!
Honestly he was not a very good rapper, but he had a smooth singing voice and was a good producer. - DaWyteNight
This poll is a joke. Dilla is a legend. The dead rappers are laughing up above at this.
Rest in peace Dillatroit. - SelfDestruct
The best rapper in outlawz immortalz after Tupac. It's a shame how a very young talented rapper like kadafi had to die before he can pursue solo rap career. All we got of him now is his amazing verses in the songs of the legendary Tupac.
Best rapper all time. Dead or alive.
Truly spectatular battle rap manufacturer
Aaliyah was not a rapper,... - DaWyteNight
I have no words
I never had the chance to listen to his songs, but damn they are depressive! - Not_A_Weeaboo
I wouldn't consider him a rapper, but musically he was miles ahead of most people on this list.
I love lil peep forever I wish he had a funeral but he was cremated 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😤
Restin in power baby #FOF
I'm going to support this guy rennee is a great song
