Best Trap Metal / Scream Rap Artists

Trap Metal, also known as Scream Rap is a genre of music that combines Trap Rap with some elements of Heavy Metal. Most of the time it's depressing Trap Rap with influences either from nu-metal, industrial metal or sometimes even death metal. Characteristics include heavy bass, screaming, rapping, depressing yet aggressive beats and sometimes electric guitars.
The Top Ten
1 Scarlxrd

Scar is definitely the best ever, he was one of the first out there, and honestly, his music just bangs, "6 Feet" def, my favorite.

He can rap and scream at the same time and his clothing and tattoos are dope.

Scarlxrd is amazing.His rapping is amazing but even more amazing are his screams.His beats are also amazing and are great for headbanging.He was in a band that combined Hardcore Punk with Heavy Metal(With a tiny bit of Rap in the mix) before becoming a rapper.

2 Ghostemane

Ghostemane was in a Hardcore Punk band before he became rapper and I know Hardcore is a punk genre.He really likes a lot of heavy metal especially some of the more extreme genres.He has sampled songs by Metallica,Pantera,Venom and System of A Down(Although for System of a Down some of their songs are more Hard Rock or Alternative).His beats are usually depressing or spooky but some are aggressive as akin to typical Trap Metal/Screamo Rap beats.

His music is just so diverse and ghostemane is also a unique and inspiring person.

3 XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (January 23, 1998 - June 18, 2018), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, was an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and criminal.

He puts great emotion into his songs that help make them relatable. He also is definaetly one of the best scream rappers out there and puts pure rage into some of his songs

Most of his songs are Emo Hip Hop or Cloud Hip Hop(With some influences from Grunge and Indie Rock) but many of his older songs are scream rap/trap metal.

4 ZillaKami

Stomps all other artists on this list with the possible exclusion of Ghostemane. Lyrically and Vocally Zilla is incredibly on point and when combined with Sosmula making City Morgue every song is for sure going to be a banger.

Together with SosMula they are a power team and compliment each other very well. I love his personality too.

He is the perfect mix of Nu Metal and Rap.

5 Afourteen

AFOURTEEN is in a ton of scream rap songs, whether it be a feature or his own song. Here are some songs that he is included in, "YOUR GONNA DIE IN THIS CAR", "Hypothermia", "Love Song, ETC. the list goes on and on and overall he's just a great artist.

6 $uicideboy$

Ok these guys are more Emo Hip Hop or Cloud Rap than Trap Metal but some of their lesser known songs have characteristics very similar to that of Trap Metal or Scream Rap.But yeah they have more Grunge and Emo influences than Metal influences.

7 Bones

Bones basically kickstarted this whole "Sad Rap" genre by taking influences from Emo,Alternative and Metal and incorporating it into a mostly spooky Trap Rap style of music.Now while most of the songs that Bones has made are more Emo Hip Hop or Cloud Rap some of his songs are Trap Metal or Scream Rap.

8 Killstation

Ok now we're starting to go to the underground of this genre(Well this genre is underground even though XXXTentacion managed to get into the mainstream).Some of his songs are more depressing some of his songs are more angry.

9 Nascar Aloe
10 Jasiah

His songs don't make mosh pits, they make suicide pits.

The Contenders

He makes special really music.

Incredible artist. I have so much respect for him. not only does he dive into the deeper things that most are afraid to talk about but he also puts his whole heart into his music.

14 Lil Darkie

Kinda like Tom Macdonald the Canadian sing but more hardcore and is an eagle scout who decided to make a street gang meant to be more of a brotherhood and his so called controversial art helped me so much.

He is my favorite artist in general. I just love everything about him and his music. But the genre of the voting doesn't really fit I just couldn't not vote him.

A great soul to have passed by overdose with inspirational music from the heart.

22 Rico Nasty

Rico nasty music is great and it's so raw. Her song "Rage" is my favorite so yall should go listen to it. Better yet just listen to the whole Nasty album babies.


Not 'Metal' or 'screamo' only two of his songs are metallic sounding: "I've seen satan, he has dreadlocks." and "I've seen god, he has a lazy eye."
He follows more of a 'weird', 'futuristic' and 'psychadelic' flow almost and is one of my favorite artists next to scarlxrd, if I were to recommend any of his songs I would recommend "Pop, lock, and dropdead" and "Bi-polar freestyle".
like I said he is definitely NOT metal, but still a great artist.
