Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, is one of the most influential artists in the rap game today, with amazing lyricism and flow. Logic first gained major fame through making 2013's edition of the XXL Top-10 Freshmen List, and has easily more.

Well, Supermarket definitely ruined this guy's chance. That album is just awful, and I'm not just saying it because the melon said it. I actually listened to the damn album, and regardless of the fact that I think Logic is a good rapper, his recent albums have so much ridiculous filler and Supermarket was a major fail. - Mcgillacuddy

He fell off pretty much

Smart intelligent rapper can see him being a huge deal out of just hip hop or entertainment in 20 years

He got bars, he is dope and he has content to rap about

2 Eminem Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

If kamikaze was good and that was after trash, what will be after good? I think great

He is the greatest of all time

I was going to add him has a joke, though personally don't think he will do much this year beyond tours - germshep24

Yes - DarkBoi-X

3 J Cole J Cole

He's pretty good. I still don't think he'll make anything as good as 2014 Forest Hills Drive, though. That album is way better than people give it credit for. - Mcgillacuddy

By far greatest of this generation no questions asked

I think J. Cole is definitely the best rapper at the moment. The fact that he has able to connect with listeners out here and change their lives and perspective of doing things is great.
another reason is each time u listen to a cole track or album it sounds like the first time you're listening to it, songs likeLove Yourz and No Role Models etc... were released years ago but people are still listening to it daily.
another reason is the power of his message in his songs, he's using music to predict the future "I been saw the problem but stay silence because ain't Jesus".

He slaps

4 Locksmith Locksmith Davood Ali Asgari, better known by his stage name Locksmith, is an American rapper from Richmond, California.

Never heard of this guy but I'll check him out if this guy says he can "destroy Kendrick". - Mcgillacuddy

Lock is gonna kill it this year

This dude is the truth - DaWyteNight

This guy could outrap kendrick lamar...easily.

I hope 2019 will not see the release of a new Kendrick Lamar album, he's honestly spent too much time on top and I think it's time for other better rappers to shine. - DaWyteNight

He's an extremely gifted artist. Anyone who says different are deaf as hell - Mcgillacuddy

Best rapper of all time - DarkBoi-X

He's really cool I like him great list - Lpsgirl

7 Bishop Nehru
8 NF NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician from Gladwin, Michigan.

A combination of skill, emotion, storytelling, and no cussing. Nobody is doing it like NF. Most underrated rapper in the industry.

So yeah those two song get overplayed so does a lot of other artists songs. Doesn't mean he is overall bad. His other song are pretty good.

Sorry, I'm not dealing with Let You Down or Lie anymore; those are two "songs" that are so overrated and overplayed it's unbelievable. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I never said you added him. And thank God you're not one of his fans. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

13 Post Malone Post Malone Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist.

not rap - Genesyis

That's awesome this guy is amazing his song Sunflower was awesome - Lpsgirl

Pretty generic - DaWyteNight

His songs where he actually raps are good, just not his singing ones. Missing My Idols is pretty good. - DaWyteNight

I actually don't mind this guy too much. He's not amazing lyrically or anything, but I'd rather listen to him over Youngboy Never Broke Again, Travis Scott, Future, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert etc. - DaWyteNight

He is yummy

15 Jaewon XXVI Jaewon XXVI

Pretty underrated in my opinion. He has lots of potential. - ShrekTheGoat

Nope, he's gonna make more cancerous music this year with cringeworthy lyrics and bad production. - DaWyteNight

I'm just hoping his Yandhi album will surprise me. He had a good 2018 with production on Daytona, Kids See Ghosts, and ye. He even saved Nasir with his production. - Mcgillacuddy

18 A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie

Now this guy is absolute trash. I respect your opinion if you like him but I just can't find anything good about him at all. - DaWyteNight

Everyone saying he is corny probably likes Lil Wayne and kanye west so shut up

No. I'm done hearing this guy's fake ass "woke" rap. After No Shame, I've lost all hope for this guy. - Mcgillacuddy

Too corny for me - tequila

Drip harder was just bad and the only reason I was able to finish listening to that album is because gunna had to carry his ass.
