Top 10 Dumbest Rapper Names

You may like their songs, but you have to admit, the names are stupid.
The Top Ten
1 Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way (born July 28, 1990), known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper and record producer. In September 2007, his debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" peaked at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published... read more

For sure, I agree, and it's not just his name that's random, but the things he sings as well. Who says Crank That, Harry Potter or SpongeBob?

A terrible name for one of the worst rappers of all time. Even a parrot on drugs could rap better than this good-for-nothing fool...

Don't even make any sense "sola boy tell me"? Tell who? Some rappers are idiots...

2 Waka Flocka Flame Juaquin James Malphurs, better known by his stage name Waka Flocka Flame or simply Waka Flocka, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.

Where did he even get his MC name from? Did he get it from the Muppets or something? He was watching the Muppets and was like, "Yo man, that's what I'm gonna call myself. Waka Flocka Flame!"

Sounds like a tongue twister. He must have chosen his stage name while being high on weed.

I've never heard of this guy, but his name is definitely the worst.

3 Lil Poopy

Uh...what was going through this kid's head when he decided to call himself that?

"Hey, I'm gonna go by the name Lil Poopy! Surely, no one will make fun of me." Sorry, kid... I hate to break it to you, but that was a poor choice.

By far the worst rapper name ever! I don't care that he was only 8 years old, it's still a horrible name for anyone!

Is this a bathroom joke? This is really childish. This should be number 1.

4 Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own... read more

It isn't creative, and it's annoying, but unlike a lot of people who believe everything they hear, Wayne writes his lyrics. Those videos of 'freestyles' were supposed to be 'funny' (not that they were), but Wayne was too high to rap. Not that I'm saying he is an amazing rapper (although his earlier stuff had a cool style), I'm saying don't believe everything you read on the internet or hear in gossip. Just saying, it's obvious he writes his own stuff. The higher-ups in the news would've written stories about it if he didn't write. It's clear from how unintelligent most of his lyrics are that he wrote them. It's really not hard to rhyme stupid, which is what he does.

5 P. Diddy Sean John Combs, also known by his stage names Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy, Diddy, Love and Brother Love is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and entrepreneur.

What kind of name is this? It makes him sound stupid or like he's a baby or something! Why would he choose a name like this?

Define "P. Diddy" - A tune that plays in your head while you are doing the potty dance.

Why did he change it from Puff Daddy anyway? It certainly wasn't an improvement.

6 Shorty S***stain

Showing how much he values himself and how much his audience should value him. Nice job.

Wow, very dumb name. It should be second place, right after Soulja Boy Tell 'Em.

Oh my God... I literally can't get a word out of my mouth after seeing this!

7 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

What a stupid name. But, I have to hand it to the guy; he did really well in the hip-hop game and in pop culture while having the dumbest name of all time! Now that is an accomplishment.

Ha! His name is 50 Cent because his music is only worth 50 cents. Therefore, this is a very fitting stage name for him.

Because he knows that he's worth 50 cents only!

8 Vanilla Ice Robert Matthew Van Winkle, known by his stage name, Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor and television host.

Lil Wayne and 50 Cent are alright, Eminem is okay, and I find no problem with T-Pain. Now, Vanilla Ice, wow, that is so stupid. I also agree with Soulja Boy and Flava Flav.

Not particularly a good rap name to use. Vanilla? Ice?

Vanilla ice? What does that even mean?

9 Peanut Butter Wolf

Holy God! What the hell is a Peanut Butter Wolf? A wolf made of peanut butter? Or a wolf that eats it! Seriously, this is the most ridiculous name I have ever heard, and probably the dumbest name ever, especially for a rapper!

How is this not top of the list? This is the funniest rapper name I have ever heard of. It sounds like an idiot thought of his favorite things and just put the words next to each other.

OK, this is plain stupid. He probably couldn't decide if he wanted to be called Peanut Butter or Wolf, so BAM! Still, I can't understand why this person chose this as his professional name. I mean, Peanut Butter Wolf? Come on, really.

10 Ol' Dirty Bastard

This is what he is for calling himself that: an ol' dirty bastard.

Although I have too much respect for him, but he has the most stupid stage name in the whole music industry! R.I.P.

The Contenders
11 Booty Smackinz

This guy must've been pretty stupid to come up with this.

Only a horny person would come up with this name.

12 Snoop Dogg Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., (born October 20, 1971) known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper, actor, record producer, and television personality from Long Beach, California.

What is he, the drugged-out cousin of Snoopy, Charlie Brown's dog?

He needs to be at the top of the list. After all, he is Number One!

13 Baby Boy Da Prince
14 Ty Dolla Sign Tyrone William Griffin, Jr., born April 13, 1982, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He first gained major recognition in 2010 for his feature on YG's "Toot It and Boot It", which he had written and produced for Def Jam Recordings. In the summer of 2013, he signed a record... read more
15 Birdman

He also has a nickname baby. Really? What grown man calls himself baby?

16 Baby Bash

Why you would make your rapper name completely sound like something completely perverted is completely beyond me.

17 The Game Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known by his stage name The Game, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. Game spent most of his childhood in foster care (up until high school) even though he knew all of his brothers and sisters. Since 2002, Game... read more

The name, is the game, and it's so lame.

18 Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American rapper and pop music artist from Carol City, Florida. He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

It's literally just the word "Florida" but split into an awful rapper that gives Florida a bad name.

19 Lil Uzi Vert Symere Woods, better known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American hip hop recording artist and songwriter.

His name sounds too extended, especially the "Vert" part. I think he should drop that part and stay as Lil Uzi.

If you have the word "Lil" in your rapper name, you will live a bad life.

I laughed when I heard his name for the first time.

20 Chamillionaire Hakeem Seriki, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Houston, Texas, better known by his stage name Chamillionaire.

Was previously thought to have evolved from Charmander the Pokemon.

Sucks to become a chamillionaire if that worth isn't held by gold bars.

21 Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper and entrepreneur born on September 14, 1973 in New York City. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

It's how you say nose in Romanian, although I'm not sure of the spelling.

Well, his name sounds Nas-ty. Get it?

22 Kardinal Offishall

He's an official for the St. Louis Cardinals?

23 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... read more

I mean, let's be fair here. He shares the same name as a type of candy. Also, I'd just like to take this time to say that Skittles are better.

His raps are amazing, but when I first heard his name, I instantly think of chocolate.

Not a bad name if it sounded like the bite-sized chocolate candy.

24 Pimp Daddy Welfare
25 Fetty Wap Willie Maxwell II, better known by his stage name Fetty Wap, is an American hip hop recording artist from Paterson, New Jersey.

His name sounds like a Muppet character.
