Best White Rappers
Eminem is number 1 for a reason. He's so good that even when he releases a bad album he still makes it to number 1 in the billboard charts. I respect him a lot for what he does! I don't know if MGK should be behind Eminem in this list at all. Especially considering his most recent EP album (which wasn't his best effort). If I shoulchoose a rapper to being right behind the GOAT of rap, then I personally would say NF. And no NF is not a copycat. People who say that are the people who haven't listened to his Albums "Perception" and "The Search". BUT there are some moments where he sounds like EM but his style is unique and is powerful. I agree that he's not better than EM, and probably never will be; but he could be the next number 1 white rapper when EM retires (if he retires). I just hope one day EM and NF would do a collab, because that would break the music industry. Especially since they both have extreme lyrical talent.
Most accomplished? Yes. Most notable? Yes. Best white rapper? NOT EVEN CLOSE. Lyrically, his songs are all over the place. Not to mention they are about crazy, wild nonsense. Lyrics should be what defines rappers, like painting ability defines painter. Not how many paintings he's sold. That being said I can name 5 that are BETTER than Eminem. Token, Action Bronson, Rittz, Lil Dicky, TF. I could probably name 10, but I've made my point.
He is hands down the goat of white black latino Hispanic any rappers and really brings out his feelings in music to be murdered by. favorite are the two songs with Rihanna (The Monster & Love The Way You Lie) and Without Me. Recovery is my favorite album
Lets be honest was is really a surprise. Selling 60 million albums worldwide, Eminem is not only widely considered the best white rapper ever, he's considered one of the best, and most controversial, rappers of all time. He kicked down the door for white rappers to be legitimate, not just novelty or underground acts.
Incredibly talented and underrated. Dude can freestyle his ass off, dude can make hits, dude can make soulful music. He gets clowned on a lot now a days but I've been a fan since he was low key so I'd vote him #3 after Em and Mac (even tho I think mgk killed Em with Rap devil, I still gotta out the OG at #1)
This rebel is like my favorite rapper. He should go to the slammer for overcoming Eminem (in my opinion). This dude is like the most repetitive rapper, and by that I mean constant. In the past years, he could do like ten stanzas without breathing, and didn't do three word stanzas like Slimshady. I'm not against Slimshady, I love him! He's like my fourth favorite rapper, but nobody gives recognition to MGK, who in my perspective is even more talented like Eminem. Yes, I totally agree that Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly own their own way, own ego, own rap strategy, and are nobody else but themselves clearly, but I think MGK evaluates that even more because Eminem is a tiny bit relevant to other rappers of the 90's but no other rapper is like Machine Gun Kelly. Machine Gun Kelly (if you are reading this comment), please know that you are special like no other and I don't want you to change your rap strategery at all! You are like Eminem said, a "Rap God", although I haven't heard that ...more
Easily the best live performer, great lyricist, unlike most rappers he plays several instruments and very well. Kells has songs that'll hype you up instantly and he has songs that'll bring tears to your eyes. He's very straight up and the furthest thing from fake. He shares his opinion in the realest way. Mad respect for the guy he definitely deserves a high spot on this list.
He's got a movement, he's got amazing lyrics that anyone going through hard times can relate to, he's got perfect flow, he's got this explosive music, he's got this gifted voice. He's not probably the best, but he's definitely one of the best.
Why isn't he in the top 3? He should be in 2nd because he has very good flow, he can rap faster than anyone on this list (Except Eminem), His songs are very catchy, and he really cares about his fans. When I was waiting for his third studio album (Everybody) I heard that he released a mixtape (Bobby Tarantino) so then his fans can have something to listen to while we wait for the 3rd album. Also his fastest song was 8.8 syllables per second. That is faster than every rapper on this list (Except Eminem). So I say he should be in 2nd.
What is it with many stupid and racist jerks in thinking logic looks just white. He looks mixed he has blue eyes light brown wavy hair and medium to fair skin color. He has Caucasian and African features. He is mostly white but he can be considered mixed. He is really smart and he really knows a lot of things about street smarts and other stuff. So being white and Maryland can't stop him from being acceptable in rap music and he has so many good things about him.
Logic looks mostly white but that is not a good reason to think he wouldn't be accepted in rap music and make a big deal over it. Logic really does look mixed so he wouldn't really be too white for rap music and likely some whites would still make it in. The racism would also come from being skeptical against white privilege. So racism is harsh towards any culture there are big differences that is pretty upsetting when some white rappers don't get accepted but that is not nearly has concerning as the police brutality that goes on and social justice people of color struggle with all the time. But logic is a great rapper.
Lyrically one of the best in all of rap. Up there with Lamar & Cole as far as story telling/lyrical meaning. Not only is he one of the best white/mixed rappers, but one of the best rappers period. Sad he doesn't get the respect he deserves.
I'm not gonna lie. I don't even listen to rap usually. I am a lyric fanatic, however and Yelawolf for me is my one an only exception to listening to rap. Don't get me wrong, I like Ubiquitous, Eminem, and even Rittz, but I don't jump in my car and actively search their music. With Yelawolf, I buy his albums and I LOVE them which surprises everyone that knows me. I can listen to them from start to finish on repeat forever and never get tired of his genius.
Yelawolf is by far hands down THE most talented artist in rap & hip-hop today!...of all time? Well not yet but notice that I say YET. His verbal flavor is like no others. The mixing of lyrical melodies into his New South style of music is absolutely brilliant. He definitely raps & sings about real stuff & it seems to come original & straight from his heart which nobody can duplicate. H.B.
One of the most underrated ARTISTS. Guy is really one of the best songwriters of the present, as he showed on his new album Love Story. Has a lot of substance and passion in his music unlike most rappers who only talk about drugs, money, and women..and never sold himself out to make Pop radio hits like 95% of rappers today do.
Yelawolf's the only rapper that's ever brought a tear to my eye, and I've listened to Eminem's "Mockingbird". His track, "Disappear" from the "Love Story" album was original work unlike any rap I've ever listened to. His style is original and full of passion. He makes the top of my list any day.
His Album "Perception" and "The Search" were number 1 in the Billboard charts for a reason. This guy has been compared to Eminem so much people actually think he's generic! If you think that he's generic then you should listen to the song "Returns" from his most recent Album "The Search", because he actually answers that statement in a powerful way (Without cursing). He should at least be in the top 5 in this list, but people are just too consumed by the lies of him being an Eminem clone. Even Eminem called him a "recovery clone". If Eminem subtly dissed NF, then NF is doing something right. That means that NF is becoming a threat and Eminem is telling him that he notices NF. I respect him and I believe that he will be Number 1 when Eminem retires (if he decides to retire). If EM doesn't retire then I believe NF will be the only threat to EM in the future. It'll be cool to see them battle each other in the future, but it would also be awesome if they did a collab together. You thought ...more
Personally, he is the best rapper to me. He doesn't rap about stupid stuff, he raps about things that are meaningful. He raps to get out his feelings. He raps to make an impact. His music is kid-friendly, but not boring for adults. His mother died from an overdose, he was abused, and now he's locked inside his mind with fear. Come on guys, help me get him higher on the list!
NF is an emotional person, but a rapper too. People think he's not a good rapper because he shares his feeling buts that's wrong. NO NAME is my favorite of his at the moment because it's a cool rap song but has emotion in it too. People say he's overrated but when you think about it, Eminem is popular when his rap song aren't eve that good. That's just my opinion, no disrespect.
I saw someone say that Yelawolf was the only rapper that made them cry... they obviously haven't heard "How Could You Leave Us" by NF. Also, none of the other guys on this list have as much passion as NF. Including Eminem. Period. If you are rolling your eyes at this, listen to the tracks "How Could You Leave Us," "Mansion," "Therapy Session," and "Outro." You'll thank me later. Another thing that NF brings that most of these other rappers don't bring is actual substance to his music. He isn't afraid to be open and raw. Additionally, I've never heard someone say "________'s music is the only reason that I am alive right now" about any of these other rappers, yet NF is having that kind of impact on his fans. In conclusion, I'm not going to make the claim that he is the most talented rapper on this list; I would put Eminem and Logic ahead of him. But if you are looking for a guy who makes "Real Music," then no one comes close to NF.
Oh my God! First Eminem, then Machine Gun Kelly, now G-Eazy! G-Eazy is a destinct rapper, in my opinion. He raps about different types of topics, unlike "MotorSport" by Migos, or "Marmalade" by Macklemore (who I love), though I love both of those songs, G-Eazy eaps differently. What I like about G-Eazy is that he speaks clearly, unlike Lil Pump or Post Malone. He's kind of like NF, where NF speaks clearly too, and raps about different stuff, too, especially in "Therapy Session" just like G-Eazy's "Me, Myself & I" with Bebe Rexha. Though "Him & I" comes from the basic topic of a love relationship between a guy and a girl, he's not talking about drugs or drinking as a sexual reference to addiction of a girl in this song really. Great flow, great lyrics, great topics, great creativity, great decision on collaborations or featured artists. You hit it Gerald and keep on hitting it, I Mean it.
Great rapper and great performer. Truly one of the greatest for me, deserves a place right behind Eminem. "Coldest white rapper in the game since the one with the bleached hair". Been following him for years and he's just getting warmed up y'all. To the people thinking his songs miss substance: look under the surface, read between the lines, listen to all his songs and you'll find the substance for sure (Everything will be allright, Marilyn, Must be nice, Shoot me down, Far Alone, Downtown Love, Sad boy, Remember you,...) I like that he has the struggle between being famous, wanting to be alone and just wanting to do well in life and for his family. Love his gratitude and openess about being sad once in a while and having anxiety about people and live. He's one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to empowering me to work hard for what I want in life, work hard and party hard. From the bay to the universe! You go, G.!
His old stuff is the most relatable stuff I've ever heard. Still cold right now crushing the game from 2013-now and many years to come. People say he's not that lyrical uuuuuuuh tf? Sad boy, don't let me go, no less, Remember You, Endless summer, Tumblr girls and opportunity cost are unbeatable tracks. He places 2nd for me. Not better than Eminem but the only one in his league. He's been grinding music even when he wasn't noticed and stilled dropped fire. He deserves it more than anyone.
Should be #2 right now for sure, #1 by the end of his career. So underrated. He can pull of any beat and tempo. Great lyrics right from the heart without apology. He's amazing live and gave by far the best performance I've ever seen. So talented.
Legend, deserves more respect from this list. I'd put him at #2. His artistic growth, his depth, his fun attitude and positive energy in the face of all his depression. I've listened to Mac since I was a kid. I grew up with his music and his music grew along and matured with me. I was heartbroken to see him pass. Rip to a real fkn legend!
Mac at 6 is disrespectful. Dude's definitely better and has had more impact than Logic, Yelawolf, and G Eazy. Mac's easily in the top 3 with Em and MGK.
Mac has real deal talent. He is always evolving and growing as an artist, which just makes him increasingly versatile. He is just getting started too.
Pioneer of the new rap generation, changing the face of old gangsta rap...
Definitely 10X better than both G EAZY and MGK
Macklemore is okay. He has got great rapping skills, but is a bit of a weirdo and is all about gay rights and they is fine but he acts like he is the coolest dude ever. Cocky, but good. In my opinion, Eminem is only great white rapper ever.
How is this guy not on the list... For starters, many people have been saying he is one of the best white rappers for a while now, and he rapped out Thrift Shop.
End of story.
Pure songs and songs about getting girls and ones about equality and Seattle. Everything this guy is... He should be at least number 2 but u do agree Emenim is the best. Still, just listen to Kevin, Same love, My oh My; all these songs have so much power behind them.
Macklemore is legit a God when rapping, people just listen to hood music these days aka Fetty Wap
You CANNOT forget about Mike. Eminem is EASILY the best white rapper, but this guy is underrated. We forget that he's a rapper because he's in one of the nu-metal bands of all time (and because, while most rappers have a pretty hardcore exterior, he's basically the nicest guy in the world), but Mike is one of the best white rappers, if not one of the best rappers, to ever live. He's multi-talented, yes, but his rapping skills are pretty top-notch.
I don't think people really know Mike's rap tracks since Linkin Park's hits kinda mask all their other songs, if you haven't.. check out songs like " High voltage", " I have not begun", When they come for me", Wretches and Kings, "wastelands", and " until it breaks".
He also goes under the name " Fort Minor", that's completely Hip hop, if you haven't.. you should definitely give it a listen.
Mike is a true artist. I'm also an Eminem fan, but M. Shinoda can play more instruments than I can count, do visual art (like paintings and stuff), and rap like a genius. Between that and all the charity stuff he does, I'd say he like a modern the Vinci.
I Really didn't know him until linkin park and tracks "in the end" and "high voltage". And his not just a rapper his also plays A LOT of instruments! He's ALSO a great singer, songwriter and artist! Most of his lyrics have a deep meaning!
Rittz kills it every time he spits. There's no doubt about that, but he doesn't get the credit he deserves. I know he's better than Yelawolf. Next to nothing was second on the record sales when it dropped so I think that probably says it all. The way he words his rhymes and the beats he kills, there's no doubt that he's in the top five white rappers hands down. Bloody Murdah!
Ritzy is by far the best rapper on this list, then Yela, then maybe MGK. Me just has the name but after his first couple albums he is garbage.
I love me some rittz! I relate to so many of his songs.
P.s. he should at least be in the top 5!
Rittz only receives about 280,000 monthly listeners on Spotify yet he is so good. All my friends and I listen to rittz
I agree that this cat has the talent and potential skills to one day rest a lot closer to the top of this list (or any list of top lyricists for that matter). If he could bring a little more depth to his style, a little something people can relate to...more of the struggle, less of the lyrical bravado bragadocious type ish...show us what he's really made of...because there's no doubt he got the rhyme patterns and the linguistics to match. He's got all the ingredients, just needs to evolve the recipe a bit. When I was young you had to be from the ghetto of a major city to make it anywhere in hip hop, and after awhile the wife & kids & good job route started to look way more cozy. I hope this cat keeps it moving, not only for himself but for those like him, who came before.
Why the hell is UBI 8th! Has anyone heard his lyricism. The way he puts his thoughts together and makes it rhyme puts him in the top 20 of all time for me. He definitely beats Lil Wayne and Drake by a long shot. He's just never noticed because he's not mainstream.
From 2003 to 2012 Wyte was easily the 2nd best white rapper out behind em! Still spits fire to this day, never went mainstream and still puts in work. Lifetime fan of Wyte should be too 5
It really sucks that G-Eazy is higher than Wyte.
The best southern cracker rapper of all time!
I am Lil Wyte. Seriously. I can take 14.
It says "John Cena". But, where is he in the picture? All I can see is an American flag!
Cool dude and nice guy but nobody has ever heard his songs, at least I haven't.
He makes music? I know he got into acting but I didn't know he's a rapper too.
I thought he was an American wrestler, not a rapper.
Super-Talented. He has a vision for the game he wants of himself, and that's something hood rappers need to start understanding. Be yourself, and be good at it-- Lil' Dicky has some dope tracks.
Lil Dicky is such an innovative rapper. "Professional Rapper is one of the most creative tracks I've heard. Snoop's nonchalant tone while Dicky raps his ass off is killer.
The man has no hardship in his background but his raps are strong and has a Good beat. He is new give him time and let him make a name for him self
Lil Dicky goes hard and the background he has does not change the raping style. He's young and can make himself big
I can't believe vinnie Paz is below vanilla ice after the albums this great lyricist has produced, mockery
He is an astounding singer and rapper. In my opinion, he has the whole package when it comes to rapping. Not a lot of rappers can rap so well with an amazing and original beat. Also, a lot of rappers cannot rap with an intention to make someone feel the same as Tyler does once you finish listening to one of his songs with him singing, let alone him rapping. lastly, the meaning behind his words is breathtaking.
One of the most peaceful voice that I've ever heard...
Even when he raps!
He's voice is so pure and soft.Even when he screams it is like he's trying to make you sleep.
Keep singing bro.
World needs your beautiful lyrics and voice.
I literally only came to this list to see Tyler on it. Love him!
This boy kills it! AND...his brother likes it when he raps fast!
Aesop Rock makes you want to expand your own vocabulary, read more, understand his complex metaphors. He's a great MC, amazing on stage, but what is most surprising is that he uses his large vocabulary and ability to craft imagery while freestyling off the top. Easily the best rapper alive.
This guy should be 1. His vocabulary level is like none other, not there just because and the way he formulates his esoteric lyricism is beyond what any other artist here could ever do. P.S Lil Dicky and Mac Miller are JEWISH.
Aesop Rock, easily the greatest lyricist rap has ever had and one of the best flows in rap as well. Aesop Rock would wipe the floor with any other rapper on the list, even Eminem.
How the GOD is not #1 let alone top 10 is actually ludicrous. RIP people not knowing the G.O.A.T. for white rappers.
Thank goodness he's over John Cena and TobyMac. He deserves to be heard by so many more ears; not only can this guy rap, but he conveys positive messages. He addresses social issues in songs like Vendetta, and he's got really some really fantastic rap tracks, such as You Can't Stop Me. It won't be long until he's up there with guys Kendrick and Eminem
He is super amazing, especially live. When I saw him, he was spitting raps while skateboarding all over the stage. Amazing.
Totally awesome rapper. Just winning & chilling in the Rap industry, and deserves to be heard by more ears.
Check him out. Listen to uncomfortable and vendetta. Slow starts but when the beat comes you won't be disappointed
He is sick and has this crazy style.
This man is talented, his lyrics' are deep and meaningful. Such a good rapper, he definitely should be higher on this list. This man deserves more than the fame that he has.
If you're going to compare him to Eminem, also point out that Watsky also isn't a misogynist or homophobe.
Wicked fast, and funny
Barely should be here
This list shows that everyone on here has a horrible taste in music. The dude from linkin park and John Cena are higher on this list then El-p this is straight insulting and disrespectful to El-P.
Didn't find Aesop Rock so I voted for a other great rapper!
The best rapper of all time and it's not even a question.
Man is in Run The Jewels. Get him higher
What is this, his the best white rapper after eminem. that if he wasn't as good as eminem, this list should be named the most famous rappers not the best rappers
When asked about R.A., Biggie said "I thought I was the illest".
Brother Ali is albino lol and ranks higher than R.A.? Popularity is his only downfall! By far the best white boy emcee of all time! Where's Alchemist and Evidence on this list?
R.A should be on top 10
People forget how awesome Rage Against the Machine was.
Amazing but he's Latino
