The Top Ten
1 Mehrad Hidden Mehrad Hidden is a Iranian singer, rapper, and producer. He grew up listening and composing rock songs. At age 18, He formed the group Zedbazi with Saman Wilson.

Best voices, best styles, and best fans. Zedbazi is always in the sky, guys. Zedbazi #1 forever.

ZedBazi, you will always be in our hearts. We have lots of memories with your music, such as Tabestoon Kootahe, Nakoni Bavar, Cigar e Soorati, and Nabayad Vaisam. All of your albums and songs are cherished. Someone, Pishro and his crew, is so jealous, and they can't stand to see your improvements. We hope that you, Mehrad, and your band ZEDBAZI will be successful in your lives and music. Your new music is perfect. When I was a child, I listened to your music, and now as a young man, I still love your new and past music. Love you. Khodahafez. Bye.

He is and always will be one of the best musicians and singers in Iran's history because of his voice, his music production, and meaningful lyrics. Because of all the work he has done for Persian music, he will be remembered as the best in what he does.

2 Hichkas Sorush Lashkary (born May 10, 1985) better known by his stage name Hichkas (Persian: Hiĉkas - هیچکس‎‎; meaning "Nobody") is an Iranian rapper from Tehran. Hichkas is considered as one of pioneers of "Persian Rap" and "Persian Urban music.

While everyone else called any rubbish rap, his rap or lyrics changed all the other rappers' styles, which shows that he is a leader in Persian rap.

He is an old Persian rapper and is the first man who combined rap music with Persian traditional instruments.

I think he is one of the first rappers in Iran, and he has a very powerful voice that everyone likes. I love him and his songs too.

3 Bahram Called as one of the 50 people shaping the culture of the Middle East, by Huffington Post, Bahram Nouraei challenges the dominant artistic, cultural and philosophical consensus of the Iranian society . He constantly pushes himself out of his comfort zone to reach his own understanding of creativity in conscious hip hop music ... read more

His most recent album, "Good Mistake," is the first Iranian concept album ever made, using reverse chronology as the storytelling technique. The album includes 11 tracks connected together by 5 skits, which are real sounds designed to help listeners contextualize the story based on their own mental associations. The self-released album "Good Mistake" was published through all digital music channels on July 4, 2015, and ranked #4 on Billboard's Top World Albums Chart.

Real song. Real rap.

Bahram is my hero. When I listen to his music, I really feel good and enjoy it. He is the king of Persian rap (hip-hop).

4 Yas Yaser Bakhtiari, better known by his stage name Yas, is an Iranian rapper. Yas is one of the most popular rappers in Iran and Middle East. He is also known for his Faravahar pedant, a symbol of Iranian nationalism and Zoroastrianism, that he wears most of the time.

Everybody knows that he is the best Persian rapper. Something that other rappers in Iran can't deny is that he is the most popular and most famous rapper in Iran. He also tries to introduce Persian rap to the world and has traveled to the USA to perform and work with American rappers.

Yas talks about the pains we all have, and his voice makes me feel it. But it's not just the pain. The hope at the end of his songs makes him different for me. I like and need this hope!

Yas is undoubtedly the best rapper in Persia, and even beyond that, he's the best rapper in the world! He has social and political character because he pays his taxes.

5 Reza Pishro

In terms of meaning and rhyme, I never did get this one. It isolates the style of God.

He has a very good style.

Pishro has devoted his life to rap and has successfully navigated all the branches of this style.

6 Ho3ein

I think Eblis is the best Persian rapper. Every rapper can sing in one style, but Eblis can sing in different styles. He is also one of the first Persian rappers.

He is the best. There is no doubt. His rap style and voice make me crazy. Additionally, his lyrical poetry is amazing. There are so many definitions and meanings for each word that he says. I assure you that he is the biggest Persian rapper of all. Just listen to some of his songs like Man, Lazeja O Joubia, Hasrat, Radepa, etc. Enjoy Persian rap.

One of Hussein's fans in IRAN (Kurdistan).

Thanks for reading this comment.

Eblis is the king of rap.

7 Sohrab Mj

The best rapper in Iran. I mean, he has the strongest flow and lyrics at the same time. He also invented his own flow in Persian rap.

He is so amazing and high-class in the game that a lot of rappers diss him for no reason. They want Sohrab to pay attention to them and make them very proud.

Best rhyme maker of all time. You could say he is the best rhyme maker in the world. With his accent, he is almost perfect in singing raps and disses.

8 Shahin Najafi

You have to live in Iran to understand the real differences in lyrics, music, and voice between Shahin and all other government rappers.

Shahin represents a kind of ideology relevant to humanity.

You cannot imagine how pleasing Shahin is to anyone who speaks Persian and has lived in Iran.

You cannot imagine how much Shahin understands me and my oppressed people.

Absolutely, Shahin is the best voice representing various levels of Iranians all over the world.

Shahin Najafi is a real singer who sings about social pains and more. He is not just a rapper. Some parts of his work and singing are rap. We cannot say that Shahin is only a rapper. He is different, but in rap, he is also first-rate. This is my opinion.

Shahin is the god of Persian rap and the voice of a voiceless nation. He is the one and only who respects the word rap and has experienced pain. He is talented in Rock, Hip-Hop, and Blues. He is the rapper of all time.

9 Saman Wilson

He is the best. Do you know why he is in this place? Because of his 7-year absence. But now he's back to reclaim his position. Number 1.

He is good too. I love his gang voice.

He is the best.

10 Erfan

His work actually has the best quality among all Iranian rappers. Besides, he was the one who released the first Iranian hip-hop album in international markets. Compared to the music and beats of other rappers, he is head and shoulders above them all!

Erfan is always making hit songs with great music video quality and strong flow, which means a lot to Persian rap. He's been in the game for 21 years and is still rapping hard!

He is talented, intelligent, stylish, and handsome. His poetry is so beautiful, meaningful, and touching. I've never seen such a talented Persian rapper.

The Contenders
11 Ali Sorena Ali Khoddami (born April 26, 1990), also professionally known as Ali Sorena, is a hip hop recording artist and record producer from Iran. Sorena in his stage name refers to Surena, leader of Parthian Empire in Battle of Carrhae. In about 2008, he started his work in underground Persian music and his first album (Marde Tanha) released in 2012.

This is one of the best rappers of all time. His vocals and lyrics are so powerful. Ali Sorena's flag is raised high at all times.

Believe me, he is the best rapper in the world, even better than Bahram or Eminem.

Very, very good. An urban singer.

12 Siavash Sijal

I love you, Sijal.

God of sense coloring.

His voice is magical.

13 Alireza JJ Alireza Jazayeri, better known by his stage name Alireza JJ, is an Iranian rapper, producer, and film director.

He is probably the most controversial member of ZedBazi. He often takes shots at other artists and sometimes even his own fans. His flow is often slower than the other members, but he makes up for it with controversial and politically-charged lyrics: "Chejoori rafte on lahjeye aalie Amricayi/ too oon kaleye Khalie Ariayi?", "Ellate davamemoon/ Mellate Javademoon." He also serves as a producer in the group alongside Mehrad Hidden.

His puns are so good, and he's the number one producer. He always has a new idea!

He is very good. I like him!

14 Fadaee

What? Fadaee is 17? Am I asleep or not?

He is the best rapper, really.

The best rapper in the world.

15 Shayea

He is really underrated. I just can't believe someone like "Alireza JJ" is above him on this list.

Shayea is just amazing. His poems are masterfully written by him, something even some idiots can't accomplish in years.

A special talent for Persian rap.

16 O-Two

He is like a god in Persian rap. His genre is alternative rap/hip-hop (the first person in this genre). O-Two is looking to make an impact on rap culture in Iran.

Music producer & singer.

17 Behzad Leito

He has a lovely voice.

Behzad Leito is the best.

One of the best.

18 Sadegh

The best poet. He is very talented.

Sadegh has the brightest mind. Just close your eyes and travel with him.

Sadegh is really nice. He has the best lyrics (after Ho3ein), the best voice (after Ho3ein), and is just awesome (after Ho3ein).

19 Justina

I love your song.

She is a rap girl.

20 A2 aka Amir Ali

I just love him.

21 Quf

The only Persian rapper who is hood and such a gangster. Quf doesn't fear the Iranian government like other artists.

I've known Quf since I was a child. He's like a gangster and doesn't fear anything.

He has an awesome flow.

He's the best, and I think he has many fans all over the world, not just in Iran. So it's his right to be the best one. His style and appearance should also be considered. I love him.

Yes! He is the best in music and the best in the world. He is the king of everything! He has a perfect voice. He is my life, my love, my king, and my star!

He is the best, more than the best.

23 Behzad Pax

King of diss love in Iran because the text of Behzad is very beautiful and powerful. Behzad's voice is very good. Behzad is the best rapper.

Behzad Pax is the king of diss love. I adore him because of his personality, nice voice, and beautiful songs.

King of diss love.

24 Amir Khalvat

The future of Persian rap.

The best Iranian rapper.

The true street rapper.
