41 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 is she doing on this list? Nicki sucks. I couldn't even get through her first song on the pink album it was that bad. Her sound is annoying, she uses simple beats and boring lyrics and makes her songs all about her ass which is 99% of the reason she is famous. I look forward to the day when I can turn on the radio and not hear her trash.

This whole list is bull. Fist of all, where's Eminem? Or Hopsin? Or Immortal Technique?

With her newest album "The Pinkprint" I think she should definitely be top 15. People get hear the songs like "Anaconda" and think that her butt is all she talks about. The first song talks about some deep stuff on her new album and there a some songs that are sad songs about love. Should be higher than 22. - gavinthatcher

Nicki Minaj, you're kidding me right

42 Pitbull Pitbull

#43 is pretty high for Pitbull considered he's one of the worst rappers of all time to get famous. He's made the radio the radio even worse than it already is with his terrible verses. - gavinthatcher

Pitbull sucks so much

Why is he bald

He's better and more famous than all the rappers above him
He deserves his spot with Eminem and J Cole
Seriously, listen to Kendrick's song I and listen to Pitbull's 305 anthem
Not so different
And that is why he deserves the top spot

Dude is just strict flames

Best rapper ever


This is some bull

44 Wiz Khalifa Wiz Khalifa Cameron Jibril Thomaz, better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper, songwriter, and actor.

I think #23 is even a bit high for Wiz Khalifa. For a guy that only talks about smoking weed and hoes in like every song I'm not sure why he isn't even lower.

Should be at number 5 he actually makes real good fire music with good lyrics whats wrong with u people ranking wiz so low we all know what he is capable of

He has too many songs about smoking weed

What a goat

Why is this here? Young Thug just mumbles dumb lyrics that don't make sense. It sounds like he is choking on his own tongue, then like he's throwing up, then tried to gargle his vomit.

One of the most unique rappers

50 Isaiah Rashad

Listen to "shot you down" remix

Criminally underrated here. I call him the country-fried Kendrick. not sure why he doesn't get nearly as much love as the rest of his crew.


51 Bas

Just listen to 'Too High to Riot'

Bas is a rap King

59 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

Tyga is one of the best rappers of the new generation. He can make extremely meaningful songs like "I $mile, I cry" or just fun and awesome songs like Baller Alert. When he's not lyrical Tyga makes great catchy songs with awesome beats. His flow and voice are also awesome. He is the most underrated rapper ever - JAckSparrow

How are 7 million twitter followers, 15 million Facebook likes, and 9 million instagram followers, underrated? - venomouskillingmachine

Sounds like a crying hyena.

Go rapper

60 Jay Rock

This dude is pretty good. He is way low on that list. He should be at least #25 if not top 20. I could see even a bit better than that but considering he's this low on the list I'll just leave it at somewhere between 20-25 - gavinthatcher

Low profile. kills it every time alone or with black hippy.
