Top 10 Most Inspirational Rappers of All TimeWillWords
The Top Ten
HE HELPS YOU GET THROUG LIFE IF YOUR A STAN LIKE ME!
His songs have meaning and not just a lot of random crap that rhymes and just about gang fights, girls, and drugs. He raps about his life and about other peoples lives. He puts in in words and a song.
His rap was full of meaning
He's just the best rapper I know and there is a mening in his songs.V 138 Comments
"Here's a message to the newborns, waitin' to breathe
If you believe then you can achieve
Just look at me
Against all odds, though life is hard we carry on
Livin' in the projects, broke with no lights on
To all the seeds that follow me
Protect your essence
Born with less, but you still precious
Just smile for me now"
Pretty inspiring if you ask me.
Tupac is not Just a rapper but he is a poet, freedom fighter and he also has enough brain power to be president. Eminem is a good rapper but Tupac is just the greatest. His Music is Raw and Authentic. It tells a story and Tupac can make you laugh, cry, dance, be crazy anything. Eminem even said himself that Tupac is the Greatest and most influential artist. Honestly just listen closely to his Words. Tupac has a song that everybody can relate. Just think about it a guy that can make such a huge impact in the music industry at the age of 25 has to be the greatest. If Tupac was still alive nobody would even talk about Eminem. Tupac also suffered many hardships. He only had two pants and a sweate. But he brang himself out of this struggles. He was the only rapper who was not scared to take on the police, and illumanati. His last album was called Killumanati. All these rappers of today are sell outs. So I don't care how famous you are or how much records you sell there will never be a man ...more
Better than Eminem fasho
You damn right PAC was the realist, just look at the titles to his songs, somebody really dick riding em, but even em gives PAC his props. Tupac lyrics are studied on a college level as a course trident to breakdown what he was saying oh he died at 25 meaning he wasn't at his peak yetV 78 Comments
Neva lisented to his music
This guy right his is extremely inspirational Eminem even said he's one of the best. Go listen to I Can by him and One Mic and all his songs with Damian Marley.
Nas is educated he puts into his rap hence his words by default have more depth and substance. he should be number 1
I'm a fan of Eminem and even I can face the fa the that the most inspirational rappers of all time are biggie smalls and Nas. No one is more inspirational than these 2.V 8 Comments
Mike Shinoda has always been a major inspiration to me. His lyrics spoke out to me more than any other rapper that I knew. His work on Linkin Park was amazing, and helped me get through a major depressive stage in my life. Fort Minor was a great side project and has many amazing songs, my personal favourites being Right Now and Where'd You Go? His solo career with Post Traumatic is also one of the most underrated albums of the year so far, as it flew under the radar from many people. His lyrics speak on the issues that many people of different ages can touch on and interperet in their own ways.
Mike is the best rapper ever along with Eminem... Should be at 2 place at least...
"In the end, it doesn't even matter, " is one of the most famous modern song lyrics today. Songs that tell you to let it go, and to be yourself rather than the person people want you to be. He I much better than Eminem, he should be number 1. And plus, Eminem always swears even when he doesn't need to. And his voice is awful. M SHINODA FOR LIFE!
Mike Shinoda is better than any other rapper
Mike shinoda FOREVER - WillWords
The stuff he says is not just cool it makes a lot of sense. If you don't find it inspirational in any way you probably sick in the head
He has a unique flow and style that many rappers don't have. His lyrics and storytelling is a major factor to why he inspires people.
Should be higher, to pimp a butterfly describes his fight against depression and finally getting out of it, and that's the most inspirational album I have ever heard. And that's saying something
Top 5 for sure, arguably top 3... Lyrics and positive messages are out of this world. Number 8 is a disgrace.V 20 Comments
He stopped a man from committing suicide. How is that not inspirational?
T.I is THE icon of inspirational rap
Yes he did stop that but you know what else... HE didn't STOP TYGA FROM BEING A PEDO!
And no other rapper or even person on Earth stopped him, so you really can't count that against him. - KUZGUN
He is the number one rapper of all times and best well rounded rapper there is💥💥💥💥💥💥
Most of his songs are amazing but the drugs and sex ones let him done
B.O. B is wack
The way he doesn't talk about the same thing like lil Wayne his word mean same thing then drugs and bitches
His tracks really are an inspiration...sex,drugs,money..not his thing! total Turn Off
What has the world come to when the guy who inspired all these others here is not number 1? - DaWyteNight
When it comes to the likes of Pac and Eminem, they indicated at some point in their career that Rakim had an influence on their music.
One of the fathers of rap. Shoulb be in top 10 along with kendrick lamar.
Honestly Common should be much higher than this - 9713524179
He is the best ever rapper his song are like fire in they sky...
Best Producer of Hip-Hop's History/Strong &Lyrical Text/Excellent Voice
These are Why Dr. Dre is in List
Not only does he rap well, he also produces for other rappers
Forgot About Dre is 1 of the greatest songs of all time Jim Jones thinks he's better then Dre he is on Crack
Music good not inspirational thoughV 5 Comments
He is inspiring
Definitely should be higher
He's the best
Let's look at this list for a second Eminem fanboys. What is the title? Now I know a majority of you haven't heard of Cole or his story, but when you hear the word inspirational, Jermaine Cole beats everyone on here by a mile. He is the definitive every man. Even if his songs which alone should propel him to top ten on this list aren't enough to convince you, his story should crow him number one every time. Grew up in a rough neighborhood with an abusive father and a drug addicted but caring mother. Went to college for a degree but became poor due to student loans, moved to NYC waiting outside of Jay Z's studio for an entire year to hand him his mixtape, gets signed to Roc Nation, becomes a big success and is now one of the greatest rappers of the new generation. If that doesn't make you feel like you can do anything you put your mind to than I think you suffer from some sort of disorder, and because why not DOUBLE PLATIINUUUM WITOUTTT NO FEATUURREZ!V 12 Comments
So much symbolism in his lyrics that most people don't get it
I don't see how Jay z is inspirational
How is lil wayne above H.O.V. A?
He is way deeper than what eveeryone thinkssV 3 Comments
Very inspiring. - DarkBoi-X
Hopsin is has always inspired me to do great things and always helps me in tough times
One of the only rappers that doesn't need drugs or alcohol to keep the day going. Speaks the truth and his flow is super consistent.
Hopsin is one of the best rappers out there, listen to his music its definitely worth it. he keeps it realV 27 Comments
50 Cent was a true gangster who was shot 9 times and lived, and he got out of the ghetto. His songs aren't all about money and sex most of them have some real meaning.
50 cent is cool and all but I really like Tupac. Tupac was I think is the best rappers of all time and isn't that why he's the prince of rap? Tupac was just like 50 cent... Pac grew up in the ghetto and had a mom affiliated with something that involves crime. 50 cents mom did drug dealing and Tupacs mom was in the black panther group. Again they were gangsta rappers inspirational and alike. So 50 cent is a sort of reincarnation of Tupac
50 cent is one of the greatest rappers of all time, even thought he shot at like 9 times.
After biggie and tupac died him and Eminem and nas were the ones who kept rap aliveV 7 Comments
I love his music it is so good and I feel like it is so relatable to all those who had parents like him
Love this guy. he is so inspirational. Why is he not top 10?
Logic should be at number 5 for being a inspiring rapper and never having a mentality about drugs or gang affiliation of any kind
He is best rapper everV 7 Comments
How are mainstream rappers like Lil Wayne, Big Sean. etc. are on this list. Man you never heard Lupe's lyrics at all. Seriously? He raps about political/social issues and also has a great meaning associated with it.
Preach! Like I love Em don't get me wrong. But Lupe ONLY makes inspirational songs. This vote is for inspirational rappers and he needs to be top 5. Get Lil Wayne out of there. I know he's not top 5. But Wayne shouldn't even be top 100
Lupe fiasco words actually make you think and he is not a face like Drake who should not be on this list at all
All he makes is inspirational music nothing else
Lil Wayne is inspirational? Haha! Good one!
He only has two songs that are the best which is How to Love and Mirror. He wrote song called Gonorrhea which is a disease that you get from performing oral sex. Lil Wayne isn't anywhere close to a inspirational rapper so this thing right is just a joke that isn't funny.
What? Lil Wayne? Really?
Lil Wayne ain't inspiring in any way all he talks about is women and drugs and being "gangsta". If you ask me he is the tounechi
It's inspiration a guy can flunk school, sound like that... and have no knowledge of vocabulary and still make millions. That's magicV 9 Comments
#3 rapper, behind em and pac. PLEASE don't call him inspirational though
Straight out of Compton - Nadoz
This guy is legendary.. so damn inspirational, deserves to be in TOP 5 - WillWords
The more songs he releases the worse rap is
A very bad rapper
The longer he raps the worse it getsV 4 Comments
Best lyrics, deepest meaning, strongest beats... That concludes Sagopa Kajmer is the best rapper in Turkey and maybe in the whole world!
Sagopa Kajmer big rapper
Best turkish rapper ALIVE!
I heard a song of his I 50% liked it 1 half it had good beat to it other half I can't understand itV 3 Comments
Not as good as Tupac but really inspirational
The absolute greatest rapper of all time. Scary to imagine how successful he'd be if he hadn't been shot.
Greatest rapper of all time.. Well in my opinion
Hell no he should not be here. This is the most inspirational rappers list, not the most influential. - DaWyteNightV 11 Comments
Your mom gay
So Tyga is on this list and Ice Cube wasn't this makes me faith in the people who use this site - christangrant
Sick and tired of seeing this Rap God lost and forgotten.
Amazing rapper and amazing story. He's inspired so many people so should definitely be higher on this list.
I'll admit, I don't really like rap anyway, but LeCrae's messages are better than anyone else above him here. His lyrics are often directly inspired or taken from scriptures- usually inspirational scriptures.
Christian rapper, amazing. He raps about his faith and what he believes in. Not only that, he also talks about life
Man Lecrae speak God's truth in his lyrics.. His words mean so much how he testifies his life and his relationship with God in his lyrics.. he is definitely my favourite rapper ever..
He is just plain awesome
He must've been in the top ten. 3 words: HALL. OF. FAME.
Tyga should be called A.ped.i.Am
THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL PERSON EVER - mysterious
Isn't inspirational at all, he didn't start from the bottom whatsoever, he cannot relate to what rappers growing up in Compton and New York City were surrounded by whatsoever.
How's he an inspiration? He keeps saying that he struggled growing up in the hood even though he's never been in the hood. He's from Canada! There are no actual criminals in Canada most of the time.
Funny that drake rhymes with fake. Hidden message? Hell no we already knew he was a fake.V 12 Comments
Best rapper ever. His songs actually make sense and they get people out of problems. It inspires you to not take drugs or drink instead of rappers just rapping about how cool they are. He should be top 5!
How is Little Wayne up there but not Macklemore honestly macklemore has instant classics like otherside, same love, can't hold us, white walls
How in god's name is macklemore less inspirational than Lil Wayne, will.I. am and nicki minaj?
I don't even like Macklemore but he is obviously more inspirational than Lil wayne.V 9 Comments
I know that technique isn't for everyone.. his style is more of a political stand view rapping about the government and how we are tricked to think that it Is a picture perfect gov and all others suck, but in reality it is one of the most corrupt plutocracy taking advantage of third world countries. And technique sees through that and demolish them in his killer rhymes. Enough said
Immortal is insane, he should be top 10, Dance With the Devil is just one example
Shows real initiative to teach and draw awareness to the injustice cause by greedy governments. Raps about things going on in the world, not just about materialistic views that are being produced in today's music
Hardcore old political rap... Sick beats and killer lyrics that send chills down a spineV 3 Comments
Listen to the race by Wiz Khalifa and you'll see why he's inspirational.
He an inspiration, not the best rapper but inspiring
The Game deserves a spot in the top 20.
El Chapo is insane. It's awes Me in every way. - AlphaQ
The game a true survivour coming from the streets of compton to sloughtering 50 cent, tony yayo, buck and loydd. Lyrically and physically he is a 100% hood telling stories from the hood that are easy to relate to, how he grew up, betrayal, his familly, his life experiences and his pain. Hate it or love the game is one of the greatest gangster rapper since big n pac he is the last of a true dieng breed the last of the gangster rappers.
Its quite hard to call him a rapper, but is a musical genius, his tone of music immediatly strikes you as different. definitely second to eminem.
The only thing I hate about gd is his girly side of him
G-Dragon is one of the most popular and best K-pop rappers ever.
He cares for his fans... and he has prominent fans too! Many talented newcoming rappers name him as their idol.
Don't believe me? Listen to A BOY (my favourite one) or the songs of the boygroup BIGBANG, which he is the leader of. He has influenced the whole kpop world!
He literally came from the bottom and truly against all odds held his own as an incredibly unique artist who's been through hell and back. And through all his fame and good fortune he's nowhere near jaded and is, at least in my book, a potential contender for one of the best lyricists alive. A lot of his songs really hit home to me and I genuinely appreciate him. Kells.
Probably the best for he made fight depression while I was down his songs 'Her song' and " See my Tears' are just breathtakingly awesome.
What makes me adore him more is that he's still young but his song way more inspiring than any other rapper that are older than him
Machine gun kelly is the reason I live and breathe, his music keeps me goingV 7 Comments
Greatest rapper ever
Best artist in last 10 years.
He made very inspirational songs and he had helped a lot of people through hard times even if they were just starting to listen to him, he should definitely be higher on this list

Honey Singh ain't a rapper, people laugh at his rap
HE IS A RAPPER... BUT HIS SONGS ARE TOO CREATIVE... IT HAS RAP PART... ALSO A POP LIKE PART.. & HE RAPS AMAZING... HE MAKES DIFFERENT MUSIC & RAPS IN IT
PITBULL ROCKS! - WillWords
He ain't a rapper in the slightest he's a pop artist that likes to pretend to be a rapper
He is an inspirational rapper
Just listen to Triumph or Hustler's Withdrawal
He literally came from nothing to big bucks and that inspires me not just from his lyrics but his entire life story
He deserves more credit than he has
Lyrical with amazing rhythm, He's lyrics actually means something, not just about money, drugs and girls. Very underrated.
Mos definitely is goat
Lyrics of all his songs are great. - Aman2201
What inspirational about Birdman? Don't make me laugh
Birdman-Lil Wayne father son relation
Tygas a pedo-man
Come on now Chance the Rapper should be top 15 at least
Great positive lyrics.
Listen to Hey Ma
Or even Family ft. Vic Mensa
Tech N9ne is amazing as a person & out of this world on the mic! He works so hard & it shows in his music. He is able to write about his true feelings & his thoughts down knowning people will go to his music because its real & he is my inspiration for writing poems expressing myself. Tech N9ne will always be an inspiration to me & I will be proud to say I will always be a loyal fan of the snake and bat till I am dead in the ground & even when I'm dead ill still be a loyal fan!
Most creative, unorthodox rapper out there. Tech N9ne is himself throughout every song and does not let ridicule affect his music.
One of the most underrated rappers of all time! He isn't just dope, real and underground, he shows extreme technical skill. He tackles similar themes to Biggie's and even went to collaborate with Eminem in a mind blowing track "Speedom" ( Judging by technical areas and not speed like most do )
I like him some of his stuff isn't to good but overall he is crazy good.V 2 Comments
God Bless, Is Happiness Just A Word, The Oracle, End Of Days etc says it all
