Top Ten Rappers Who Are Most Respected by MetalheadsThis is a list of rappers I've noticed who are respected by people whom love metal music. Make sure to check out these rappers. If you disagree with the list, be sure to make suggestions.
After mistakenly being confused as a rock band, dubstep producer or whatever, Tech N9ne definitely is respected in the metal realm. After collaborating with Five Finger Death Punch, and making a cover of LL Cool J's song Mama Said Knock You Out, people really got in to Tech. He has his own record label Strange Music. He has also collaborated with System of a Down's lead vocalist Serj Tankian. Not to mention his upcoming rap rock band K.A.B.O.S.H. he most definitely will be considered a legend, in the Rap Rock music genre.
I mean, he did a collab with Corey Taylor. Besides that, his songs normally tend to be rather aggressive and heavy, something which is mutual for a lot of Heavy Metal acts.
Tech N9ne is very much respected by metalheads such as myself and other metalheads I have spoken to.
Tech should be number one, he is obviously the dopest rapper in the game right now. Glad he's included in the list too.
He is talented is usually don't listen to rap but the oldies are AWESOME
Haha that picture with Tupac and Kiss back in 1996 at The Grammy's...classic.
I love metal but he is CLASSIC I know sooo many people who don't like rap (I like rap) but LOVE him
I also have a lot of respect for Tupac. He can rap in a way that is good
Being the rap vocals of Linkin Park, there is absolutely no doubt that he is respected by people who listen to metal. He, himself is an amazing rapper and has made a huge amount of hits with Linkin Park.
Being the rapper of Linkin Park, he gets a lot of respect. However, I don't think he is that talented.
I mean, he's the rapper of a nu metal band, obv.
Zachary de la Rocha is a legend, he is definitely one of the best to ever do it. Being the vocalist of Nu Metal band Rage Against the Machine, he has really managed to make one of the best rap rock songs I've ever witnessed. Zack should definitely bring back RATM, they really did inspire me as a child.
The best rapper in the rap metal genre he does a good job about tell massages in his songs
RATM is the best band ever
I definitely have respect for Biggie. Great rapper.
Once a part of rapcore band Hollywood Undead, Deuce has really made a scene in being one of the most respected rappers, from people who enjoy metal. He once sung the hooks in Hollywood Undead and was later replaced by Danny. I personally think Danny is better off with Hollywood Undead, but I also wish Deuce was never kicked out.
Um... I'm sorry no metalhead "respects" this rapper that I know of.
Fred Durst is hands down one of the best to have ever made it possible. Being the lead vocalist of Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit, whom is now signed to Cash Money records. Fred Durst has definitely made history and has definitely made a handful of anthems for all you metalheads to enjoy. His lyrics are powerful, yet aggressive, he really knows how to pump you up and make you want to punch someone in the face. Limp Bizkit is amazing!
This one, seems genuinely plausible.
Yes, the Eminem inspired underground rapper Hopsin is respected by many people who love different type of music genres. Hopsin is definitely one of the best rappers to ever do it, and is definitely one of my favorite rappers as well. Having a successful record label Funk Volume, he has managed to make a lot of anthems, for metalheads to enjoy. He has also signed rappers such as Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton and has also made them reach XXL.
You don’t have to be respected by metalheads specifically to be considered good. (fyi I like Eminem, I just don’t get why you need to get metalheads respect to be considered good?)
Probably because of the fact he doesn't use the word N word every ten seconds.
Needs to be #1 because sometimes he's the only rapper that people like.
Marilyn manson and eminem are dope
I am genuinely surprised he ranked so low, considering how he is a frontman of a really good crossover thrash band. Moreover, I know that there's barely anyone in my metal community who likes Nu Metal, but do know and listen to Body Count...
Never knew much about him until I discover one of the best bands I've ever heard, BODY COUNT. He actually was partially inspiration to look into hp hop and rap a bit too.
I think that Dr. Dre's pretty cool.
To Pimp A Butterfly was practically flawless.
Fronz is amazing, Attila rules and I just love his music. The profanity may be disturbing, buy I love the music anyway.
Being the lead singer of Rapcore band Attila, Fronz is definitely respected by people who listen to metal music. Attila is amazing. Fronz is love, Fronz is life.
Atilla is crap and so is this jackass worst death core in the world
He's more reggae-sounding than rap, but he is metal also. Skindred rules.
Why isn't he in the list? Benji is amazing.
He's a pretty big black metal fan and that shines through his music. But he's into metal and rock overall too considering he has sampled bands like Pantera, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, and Linkin Park.
He's the best he grew up on Guns N' Roses and blink 182
He is a rapper but a metalhead too.
Watch an interview of him on YouTube talking about his musical preferences. Heavy Metal is his first answer.
Definitely a metal vibe, one of them used to be part of a punk band.
They're at the top but followed by people like Pouya, Ghostemane, Unaverage Gang, Zillakami and more great rappers.
Not really a metalhead but I like $uicideBoy$ a lot.But they're more for emos than metalheads but I'm not emo at all.
No Metalhead I know of "respects" him.
His violent tone is amazing. Good for heavy music fans
Scarlxrd scream 24/7 so yes
Song writer, author, producer and most definitely, an amazing Christian rapper. Toby has a Nu Metal sound in some of his songs and he is definitely an amazing artist. Many metalheads love him, and I wouldn't dare ask why.
Tobymac has collabed with Nu metal artist Trevor McNevan and also with Skillet's John Cooper
Goblin and Bastard man
He has loud and bass songs so he's definitely a good pick for metalhead.
