Best New School Rappers
The Top Ten
Every single album he drops is a classic
He is the king of the coast and New York and he is juggling them both
Kendrick is the best
Best for everV 5 Comments
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
Good flow, the BEST storyteller, great lyricist. It is almost impossible to outshine him on a track
I don't understand how he is below drake... J Cole is simply so much better... If you compare their lyrics, you'll see what I'm talking about...
Cole really does get some undeserved hate his lyrics are complex but also his beats are great him and K. Dot were on the same level until TPAB came out
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.
When he wants to, he can compete for number 1. When he is not singing (that is)
People downplay his lyricism because he sings but he has always been an amazing lyricist. He will be compared to the greats when he's jay-zs age
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 swiftV 2 Comments
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 moreV 1 Comment
Best lyricist, great storyteller listen to "The Cool", Good flow
One of the best technical genius deserve more attention drake way better than him and he writes all his song by himself so don't sleep on logic people!
Amazing lyrics, wouldn't be surprised to see him at the top in a few years.
I guarantee you in the next 3 years he will be at the top.V 1 Comment
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.
Love him. Should be in the top 10 at least
African flow rapper one of the best he can be next Tupac in few years trust me for me his a unique crazy individual rapper all his songs writed with energy,creative and strongly messages don't sleep on badass Joey badass,Earl sweatshirt,Logic,Kendrick,Jcole are the new future of hip hop for sure!V 1 Comment

Danny Brown is obviously my favorite new school rapper - jack2244V 1 Comment
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.
