105 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. He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career. He's often criticized for talking more.

Lil' Wayne is hated on so much, that he is actually underrated. Even though some of his songs are complete garbage, he does have a lot of classics, and he has been in the rap game longer than most rappers. Please stop hating on him. - EmperorAguila

I don't understand all of this BS. Lil Wayne is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

106 Roscoe Dash
107 Kid ink Kid ink

If you haven't listened to Kid Ink (which you probably have't) then you really should. He has a ton of great songs and is one of the most talented rappers I've listened to.

108 R.A. the Rugged Man

RA's an underground legend and his lyrical ability is unmatched by any other rapper in the game and dude can rhyme every other word and still make sense

109 Pimp C
110 Joey Bada$$

Pro Era and Joey Bada$$ are dope he's so underrated

111 Los
112 B-Real B-Real

Wicked and eclectic,on a different level than most rappers and does not care for the commercial scene... likes to B- Real!

113 Benefit

Made his only album on a SEVENTEEN dollar budget. The fact that this man could produce and record something so amazing for so cheap is a testament in itself. Let alone the LYRICS he puts down with a unique multi syllable flow? This is one man who needs to be known

114 George Watsky
115 Pitbull Pitbull

He has a kind of a unique type of rap many people like pitbull but a small amount also hates him! Well I like him and his best song is international love!

Pitbull should be somewhere on the worst successful rappers list

I think he is d best

Pitbull is a rapper who rarely uses Auto-Tune (which everyone doesn't know) and can really spit and freestyle just as good as Immortal Technique and Nas
He joined Eminem's Angry Management Tour and he made a lot of classics back in the day
His songs like Give me Everything,International Love,Hotel Room Service,Timber were all good but people tend to treat him like a disposable mainstream artist instead of a rapper and that needs to stop
Pitbull is unique and talented

Definitely the most underrated rapper. He does not get enough credit for the work that he has done, and also for his songs. Great role model for people around the world. Cares a lot about equal rights

Definitely the most underrated rapper. He does not get enough recognition for the work and songs he has done throughout his career. He is also a great role model and cares a lot about equal rights - Aman2201

Underrated Brooklyn rapper, he has some well known songs but he has a lot without recognition. Too bad he doesn't make as much music

Great rapper who definitely doesn't get the recognition that he deserves. - Aman2201
