82 Dizzy Wright Dizzy Wright

Most lyrical rapper out now and he's 22 with over ten years of experience he will be one of the best to ever do it. Turn it up!

He's great, but not the best

One of the greatest alive

83 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

What the heck? Nicki Minaj is in this list? All she raps about is her ASS. No meaningful lyrics at all.

WHAT IN THE WORLD! Her lyrics are horrible. All she does is rap about her A$$, and how it's better than everybody else's. Her lyrics send no good messages to any other girl in the world. The only message she sending is " if you got a fat A$$, then put your butt in the T.V. screen and shake it until your implants fall off.

I know a lot of people hate on Nicki Minaj... but I honestly do find her rapping in "Monster" really good. She has this lyrical (not lyrics, mind you) style..she makes beats flow and she knows how to create a catchy rhythm. - ishkalafufu

84 Fadaei Fadaei

Fadaei Have Best Lyrics...

Kikass the words, best player and best friend with them

85 Norm Erman

He is best rapper of Türkey all time

86 Crooked I

You haven't heard bout him? Go check him out and you'll surely put him on the first place!

Too dope and doesn't need to write, he just spits off the dome and has a strong delivery

Crooked I is the best rapper and freestylist alive check his hip hop weekly mixtapes and check his freestyles on YouTube and you'll see why he's the best freestyle and lyricist alive

87 Childish Gambino Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino is one of the most lyrical rappers in the game. His music does not appeal to many because he takes a different route. He has music that people may consider soft but once you carefully listen to it and its lyrics you will find how amazing of a lyricist he is.

Childish Gambino doesn't even need the recognition. But anyone with half a brain would give it to him. Only people on the same bracket as him are Aesop Rock, Hopsin, Ab-Soul, Nas, Eminem, and Andre 3000. That's it. Hands down.

Childish Gambino. He's a singer, actor, rapper, producer, comedian, you name it. He's the most talent rapper there is and his lyrics are so smart. There's nothing he can't do

Are you really listening though?

Ever since his first rap, he has come with his own form of metaphores, and punchlines like no other, and always increases his level. - skullgangjewelz

Best rapper of all time lyrics is very meaningful up there in my opinion with Eminem and Logic for the best rappers of all time

Definitely one of the best rappers. His lyrics are so meaningful. He is also so underrated. Id say he deserves a spot in top 10

Only of the only meaningful rappers, so underrated, deserves to at least be in the top ten

Why is he under fetty

96 Common Common Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., better known by his stage name Common, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, film producer and poet from Chicago, Illinois.

Common is an absolute genius, and the fact that he's not in at least the top 30 rappers shows how messed up this site is...

Dude common is a rap genius. His stuff is so good I can't believe he's not in the top 20

He's a true rap genius, his lyrics are truly meaningful.

97 The Game The Game Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known by his stage name The Game, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. 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 more.

Game is on ninety fifth spot... Damn.. And Lil Wayne is at eighteenth.. Laugh out loud

Why didn't anybody put this man in the list...

Ant no telling why or how they never mention Lil Wayne on the list

How is Lil Wayne, tyga and niki above game... smh

98 Z-Ro Z-Ro Joseph Wayne McVey IV, better known by his stage names Z-Ro and The Mo City Don, is an American rapper from Houston, Texas.

100 Joey Bada$$

One of the best young rappers today
