Best New School Rappers
The Top Ten
He will go no where in life
4 WORDS: TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY.
Out of all the Rappers in the new school rap game right now..this guy just does it for me, he is good, so good that each and every song he makes has a message to it. - 2strapes
He isn't new school anymore, he dropped his first album 7 years ago - venomouskillingmachineV 16 Comments
Better than Kendrick, grinding very hard. and he is very relatable and has a nice flow
J. Cole really gets some undeserved hate. He did a wack job on "Mr. Nice Watch" but that is arguably (but probably) the only fault in his career. He didn't drop classic albums like Kendrick did, but his albums were consistently good with some classic tracks. Not many rappers can do that kind of job these days. His beat production has always hit that line between modern trendiness with nostalgia, which is also a very hard feat. His lyrics most of the time has a nice poetic edge, which again not many rappers out there care about anymore. The fact that he is below Drake in this list is just a big shame. I would say he does a better job in reaching a wider audience, he just sacrifices a little more of his art than K. Dot. Characters like J. Cole are essential to the game, they break the prejudice that all rap is wack like the likes of Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, or too hard to decipher like K. Dot's. But people like Kendrick have difficulty reaching an audience that is radio friendly. Cole ...more - classick
Cole is great! He has superdope lyrics with amazing production! He has rapped about love, today's problems like drug abuse, teen pregnancy etc. I loved the way he didn't respond to lil pump's diss with a diss but with an advice.
J cole is the best rapper of this generation! No capV 10 Comments
One the most versatile artists of all time and is the most versatile rapper of the new generation. He is very underrated and misunderstood. He deserves much more recognition
Just listen to Under Pressure, his work is a masterpiece. The best flow in the game, His lyrics are so amazing and the beat production by 6ix are so dope with his tracks. Listen to Dead Presidents 3, Under Pressure and Paradise and tell me he isn't the best
Underrated,great rapper what is beyond me is how lil wayne is apparently above logic.V 5 Comments
He should be number 1
He's boom bap, on any beat. Def higher than tyler and logic easy
Listen to 1999 & B4.da.$$
He is One of the greatest rappers of the new generation
In this generation, the only rappers that I think are above him are kendrick & cole
Tyler the creator is one of the best at rhyming words of this generation
Potato salad and okra are lit
Should be #3 - jameshowardV 3 Comments
A$AP Rocky is one of the best rappers in the game right now, and in my opinion is third only to Kendrick and J Cole. His voice is arguably the best in the game and his flow is hard to match. From fire trap beats to old school beats, he can rap very quickly and understandably, dropping witty bars over a variety of different beats, as well as sing and provide a slow chorus between verses. Yes, his subject matter is repetitive and basic but he thrives within that and can give sharp bars about it that conscious rappers cannot come up with when talking about racism or politics. Overall, rocky is one of the best rappers that can be found.
One of the best rappers in the game. especially his newest songs, his flows and raps are sick and his use of old school and new school is amazing. his visuals in his videos shows that he actually cares about his aesthetic. Praise the Lord, A$ap forever and Tony Toney are his best newest ones..a king with sick bars
A$AP Rocky,Drake and Tyler are trash! And Kanye and Lupe Fiasco are not new school rappers. And A$AP is straight trash,all he really raps about is money,hoes,drugs,his subject matter is very repetitive,dude is rapping off beats,only thing this dude have is fire trap beats. Just garbare...
At least Hop is higher than lame boring Drake. - DaWyteNight
How tf is he #9. He's easily top 3. And where tf is Token at?
He's that one rapper were either he has amazing songs (ill mind 5-7) and has some not so great songs. His only downfall is that he's self produced. He only produces his songs on his album and to be honest, the beats just aren't that great and that's what gets people hating and calling him corny because people like drake fans click on his music expecting a thumping beat and that's not what hopsin is all about. Its about the music, not about looking cool.
Hopsin's has very good lyrics and messages in his songs he is also independent.V 2 Comments
Most overrated rapper. Really doesn't compete with anybody in the to then let alone the top 3. Talks about drugs, money, and females. Only thing he has is beats, take that away and look at what happens. Ever heard him freestyle, has the worst freestyles ever.
Drake is so mainstream u can't even put him in this category men I don't see him as a rapper for me it's a singer he can't rap and his lyrics are often trash please people listen to real music like kendrick or something but not Drake this dude is overhyped since the hotling bling video now he steps in the white mainstream szene acting like the new male version of taylor swift
When he wants to, he can compete for number 1. When he is not singing (that is)
The most versatile artist periodV 2 Comments
He's super original and unique. He also doesn't use an insane amount of autotune unlike some rappers now.
Has the ability to make a legitimate, coherent concept album-- something that's been left behind in this new age
One of the best existing rap flows right now, and has a brilliant delivery. His aggressive one is probably best. While he can be corny (like most rappers) he has his amazing punchlines and clever lyricism. His beats are self produced (mostly) and his voice fits perfectly almost every time.
Only thing I want him to shut up about is Asian girls.
Lil wayne is the first thing that comes to my mind when I listen to him. - Genesyis
Chance is one of the best modern rappers for several reasons:
Flow - He has one the most unique and inventive flows in Hip-Hop right now. He uses his wide range of fast, but understandable, flows in many songs but I think the best example of him using his flow perfectly is in Ultralight Beam (by Kanye, featuring Chance). His flow is reminiscent of jazz improvisation in the way that it is divided into fast and distinctive phrases that often cross the barlines.
Production - At a time when generic trap beats are dominating the hip-hop airwaves, any inventive production is welcome and Chance's beats are most definitely a huge breath of fresh air in this crowded industry. The way he uses jazz chords and rhythms and synths to create such a peppy and soulful mood is amazing. Plus, his use of a gospel choir in many songs just adds to the musicality and beauty of his music. Plus, he knows when to slow it down and to simplify his music such as with 'Same Drugs'.
Innovative - ...more
Chance should definitely be among the top ten. In terms of flows he is the king, lyricism he is beast and his stories are great. I just wish he could do something to get out there more
He is amazing go listen to parnoiaV 1 Comment
he is good
One of the best ever on a technical level, with rhymes schemes, etc. Anyone who voted Tyler is sleeping on Earl.
Best metaphors on this list by far, easily a top 5 rapper lyrically
His delivery and his flow is like no other.
He makes music like no one else his lyrics are great and the vibe is amazing in his music. If you don't listen to earl you need to.
Everyone titles him as the most controversial rapper but also he was the realist not only rapping about life but incorporating his true feelings as well not caring of the after effect that's something you don't see from a lot of rappers to not only tell you how they feel but to let you in their mind and show you the real side of life feeling the emotional part
Most versatile artist I have ever heard

Good rapper, but not new school. - jameshoward
He is influecial
Don't get me wrong, Kanye is a great rapper. But he is nit new school. His first album dropped in 2004.
He should be #1V 1 Comment
He isn't mainstream or very well known but he definitely deserves at least top 10 for his talent.
He deserves top 5
One of the hottest artists out right now, lyrically is technical and bends his words to make new ones, flow is very nice; subject matter is great as well.
How are drake and travis scott higher!
Best lyricist, great storyteller listen to "The Cool", Good flow
Because I said so, Hoe
Top three tf

I can't say a lot about this guy, cause his music is so good, he focuses more on Soul music which most artist can't do👌🏽 - 2strapes
He is pretty average, not terrible but definitely not great either. - DaWyteNight
At least top 15
How the hell is zel #26. This is ridiculous. Lyrically and technique wise he's definitely top 10.
Clout cobain. He is the most underrated rapper and is an amazing lyricist who is top 5 for meV 4 Comments
He has a great flow, and his lyrics make sence - 2strapes
Should be #11 - jameshoward
If you reading this in 2017 he is not relevant at all and Kendrick Lamar is still the hottest rapper
He should be number one
No auto tune,no mumbling and raps lyrics with meaning
Plus his songs are ridiculously catchy that it makes an underground rapper like him to appear on the radio many times
He beats Kendrick Lamar any day in terms of beats,flow and lyrics.
He is one of the few rappers of today that actually saves hip-hop from trash like Drake,Lil Yatchty and Desiigner
The same can be said for all the autotuned and mumble rappers out there.
He,Eminem,Logic,Pitbull,MGK and Kendrick are among the best new school rappers of today.
Stop being a disgrace to hip-hop,people and listen to real rap!
HAHAAHAHA REALLY LMAO TRASH PUT KATY PERRY INSTEAD AND I BET SHE SPIT MORE BARS THAN THIS WHITE DUDE
This guy sucks and he shouldn't be here this is best new school rappers not worst rappers.
Deserves to be on the list him and fetty
he's dope - CoolMods
Most innovative man in Hip Hop rn
He is corny trash and his voice is ear-splitting. I get a headache whenever I listen to him rap. - DaWyteNight
Should be #13 - jameshoward
Krit is the new king of the south. He should be easily top 5 on this list. Mt. Olympus is one of my favorite songs of all time.
If he can come out of the very deep hole the drake beef put him in then I see him competing for whatever is behind kendrick, j cole, drake, g eazy, logic, and joey badass
If you can get bodied by a rapper like Drake then you don't still deserve to be taken seriously as a rapper. - DaWyteNight
Should be #14 - jameshoward
One of the best lyriscists in the game
He has a dope flow and he should be top 10
He seems cool for sure
This guy’s lyrics don't even make sence, he sounds more like his retarded.

His 2015 stuff was the goat but not so much anymore.
HE IS THE FUTURE
Lol I all this guy can do it just mumble most of his songs don't make sence, the only dope thing is the beat - 2strapes
Should be at #30 - jameshoward
He is trash. His only great song I've heard so far is Reborn to Rebel and even that had some cringe-worthy lyrics in it. His flow isn't even that great, and his lyrics and beats usually suck. - DaWyteNight
The best. DOESN'T MUMBLE
Kid Cudi really deserves to be higher than people like Lil Yachty
Should be #36 - jameshoward
Should b #3 also hail trump
Mac is mad underrated.
Rest In Peace - Ethan-metal1
