Top 10 Best Indian Rappers

Hip-hop in India is a unique beast, blending traditional sounds with hard-hitting modern lyrics that reflect a vibrant and ever-evolving culture. It's a genre that's taken root in the streets and blossomed into a global force. From Mumbai to Bangalore, Delhi to Chennai, artists are putting their own spin on the sound, creating a tapestry as diverse as the nation itself.

These are the artists who are pushing boundaries, sparking conversations, and redefining what it means to be a rapper in India. Some you'll know, some you might not, but all of them are worth your time.
The Top Ten
1 Yo Yo Honey Singh Hirdesh Singh, known by this professional name, Yo Yo Honey Singh or Honey Singh, is an Indian music producer, Indi-pop singer and film actor.

He is simply amazing. He has a good sense of music and raps very well. He has sung amazing songs like Brown Rang, Breakup Party, This Party Gettin' Hot, etc.

His song This Party Gettin' Hot topped the chart of most-listened YouTube videos all over the world. Brown Rang also topped the chart of most-listened videos. His song High Heels got the 5th position.

He has charged Rs. 7 million for a song in an upcoming film titled Mastaan, starring Naseeruddin Shah. It is the biggest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood to date, making Honey Singh the highest-paid musical artist in Bollywood.

2 Raftaar

This guy is simply the definition of how desi hip-hop, aka Indian rap, ought to be. Just like his name, his flow is the fastest among his contemporaries, and he's arguably the best lyricist as well. Raftaar is a very kind-hearted person who, in contrast to the typical rap mindset, composes his music on social and natural issues.

He is the BEST rapper in India and the 2nd best flag-bearer of desi hip-hop after Bohemia. Legend, all the best to him.

He is my favorite rapper ever. I've heard all his songs, and each one is the best in one way or another. After listening to his songs, I also thought of doing rap and have already started. He is just amazing with his flow. In many of the songs, he spoke about the truth - songs like "Mother Nature," "Allah Veh," and so on. His swag is fabulous. I don't mind which rank he will be placed in. For me, he is always in 1st rank.

3 Bohemia

Why is Bohemia in 8th position? Last time he was in 2nd. But he deserves to be No. 1. He is the pioneer of Punjabi rapping. All his raps convey something meaningful.

It's poetry that nobody else can achieve. But still, I can't believe it. That's why we have critics everywhere because common people don't know what's good and what's bad.

He is the creator of Punjabi rap. Awesome voice. Fantastic flow. Wonderful lyrics. And much more. Love you, sir.

Bohemia is the only artist among all the others on the list who expresses while others merely entertain. This makes him different. Bohemia is the main reason behind the success of all these so-called "rappers" because he invented this style of music. They may rap, but they can't do Desi hip-hop like him. The king will always remain the king.

4 Badshah

Take out any rap of Badshah. He is the best. He started his career in Mafia Mundeer with Yo Yo, but due to some reason, they separated. Badshah and Yo Yo were earlier buddies, but now he feels very disappointed as he wrote many songs for Yo Yo.

But as is said, God helps those who help themselves. He worked hard, and now almost all his songs have broken all the records. His DJ Wale Babu was ranked as the best song, and Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai is an evergreen hit. When played, nobody can resist the temptation to dance.

See all the rest of his songs like Lover Boy, Aaj Raat Ka Scene, and Proper Patola. His flow and his rhyming are his identity and the only reason for his popularity. The choice is yours, but according to me, he is the real rapper of India.

5 Brodha V

One of the finest talents in our country, he is the illest and chillest rapper in India! What more do you want? He's got speed, flow, and quality rap and is edgier than most in the game in our country. If he continues on the same path, he is destined to transcend our borders and will even surpass many of the best international rap artists.

I'm supporting Brodha V to the fullest because he's committed to taking Indian Hip-Hop to the greatest heights!

He isn't about faking or projecting something totally bizarre. He keeps it real, stays true to old school, and doesn't overdo the electronics. Then he does what rappers are supposed to do - throw out rhymes faster than you can write them. He's got to be the best I've seen from India, and he has the capability to make a name for himself internationally.

P.S. He talks about stuff that matters in his songs. It's not always about girls!

6 Divine

DIVINE is the best. There is a different energy in his performance that energizes you. When I listen to him, his wording and the delivery of his words enlighten me.

Divine is the best rapper who represents India in his rap songs. He shows what India is like and also expresses his own life experiences. He is simply amazing and the best rapper I know.

Straight Outta Bombay (Mumbai) 59. Divine is the Kohinoor of Indian Hip Hop. His lyrics speak the truth. His rough and tough voice makes him better than the soft-spoken rappers.

He is absolutely the biggest - the BIGGEST in the scene right now. Game Changer, Gully Gang Boy, Jungli Sher. This man is a pioneer. He deserves the Number 1 spot on this list.

7 Prabh Deep
8 Naezy

My boy Naezy is the TRUTH. He keeps it raw. He keeps it real. Sick flow, sick beats, and some pretty real lyrics. I'd peg him as an Indian version of Bohemia in terms of keeping it real.

He took underground rapping to a huge level and brought the local Mumbai language into the raps. He deserves credit for the current rap scene in India.

Only a few people actually deserve to be called rappers. Naezy, Divine, and their cohort are these guys. Honey Singh is a joke.

9 Hard Kaur Taran Kaur Dhillon, known by her stage name Hard Kaur, is a British Indian rapper and hip hop singer; as well as playback singer and actress in Bollywood.

Man, she is among the best rappers in India. She brought a revolution in the girls' community when it comes to rapping. No female rappers could match her. Honey and all came after her.

She is the only girl who is really a true rapper.

10 A-Bazz

Best singer I've ever heard! The star of YouTube. Not even a single day passes without listening to him, man. Honey, Badshah, and Raftaar are all messed up in front of him.

King of love songs, remakes, and mashups. Keep it up, dude.

This A-bazz always drives me crazy with his songs. He never got an opportunity to get trained in music. But still, he is an awesome musician, rapper, and a great singer.

He is just awesome. He has a story, music, love, and a dream which he is chasing. You can feel the love in his songs.

The Contenders
11 Pardhaan

Best Hindi rapper ever. Listen to his songs, and you'll understand why no one can beat him.

The best rapper, according to me. I hope to see more cool songs from him.

He is a good rapper, and I like him.

12 Hervin aka Alien

He has a very nice accent and offers different kinds of lyrics for different songs and styles. He turned out to be my favorite rapper. He is the best rapper, and I was very lucky to see him perform live and meet him after the show.

He is so humble, with no ego or attitude. I wish everyone recognizes his music. Keep making music. Much love, @Jenita

He is a million-dollar investment for India. If a label signs him, they could make a significant amount of money with this guy. I wish I owned a label.

This guy is with Hip Hop Hooligans and has a very unique flow. He's got the swag. Through his struggles, he delivers next-level lyrics. Every hip-hop head should listen to him.

13 Nasty Mhatre
14 Shah Rule
15 Ikka

I'm your big fan, sir. Your rap is amazing.

He is one of the best rappers in India. He takes fifth place in India.

He is unique in his own way, alongside Raftaar. Now, please add Kr$na to this list.

16 D'Evil
17 Addy Nagar

My favorite rapper is Addy Bhai. His new song, Snow White, is very good, and the video is awesome.

He is simply amazing. His aggressive style of rapping touches the heart.

Addy Nagar is the best rapper ever. I think he should be on the top.

18 Badmash

Hindi Rap Guru. No fake publicity like Funny Singh. He is the best as himself. For me, he is the best Hindi rapper.

He is way better than others and everyone should learn how to rap from the Hindi Rap Guru.

You are my favorite rapper. Awesome.

19 J-Star
20 Dopeadlicz
21 Billy X

He is the best rapper I've ever seen. He is the fastest and represents the new generation of hip-hop.

He is a better rapper than Bohemia and Honey Singh. They are childish in front of him.

22 Dr. Zeus
23 Emenjay

Rapper with awesome flow. He raps in English, Punjabi, and Hindi.

24 Meco Nace

Best English rapper in India. He will reach great heights.

He should be at the top. He's so young and so talented.

25 Borkung Hrangkhawl

BK is the best rapper of India. He's songs are inspirational. He's damn cool rapper. Bk - proud of Northeast. He's the Eminem of India. We can't compare Honey Singh with BK. Honey Singh is the slowest rapper of India and He's lyrics are ... Without good meanings and BK is opposite. He raps very fast and his lyrics are better than other's. I don't know why he's on no. 50, he should be on no. 1

He is waay better than 61th ranking. Just because he's not that popular in mainland India, he's at this rank. He is one of the best in India in English raps.
Yeah, he doesn't rap much in hindi.
But he deserves to be in Top 20! Check out his songs on YouTube!
