Top 10 Best Trap Rappers of All Time

Trap music is associated with shouter drug lords who sell records and dope. These are the very best rappers within the genre.
The Top Ten
1 Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

By far the most talented artist in the history of trap. He's a phenomenal producer, sonically very creative, uses autotune very efficiently, and has created some of the best melodies I have ever heard. Give this man his flowers while he's still with us.

If you don't think Travis is one of the most talented artists in trap music when it comes to beat production and flow, then you haven't listened to him enough. But he only shows his real flow capabilities in a few songs.

One of the best producers in the trap game and also is great at using his voice as an instrument with autotune. Deserves top 5.

2 Gucci Mane Radric Delantic Davis, known professionally as Gucci Mane, is an American rapper who has released 12 studio albums and over 70 mixtapes. In 2007, he founded his own label, 1017 Records. He helped to pioneer the hip hop subgenre of trap music alongside fellow Atlanta-based rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy.

No doubt he's the best in every genre of rap. He's got hard beats and even harder bars. None of his songs are the same. The man even has a song that almost half the lyrics are in Spanish. Gucci is the Godfather of modern rap and he's about it for real. I don't know of another artist with more mixtapes. Who can go from the first Trap House album to being in a song with Selena Gomez? #EastAtlantaSanta #Mr.Zone6

Gucci Mane is the definition of trap and lives the trap life. From his beginning, he's rapped about the white, the green, and the purp. Not to mention, he's arguably the mixtape king of the past decade.

When you think of trap rap and ATL, Gucci's one of the first things that comes to mind.

3 Future

A pure legend in the rap industry. Some say he has no meaning at all, but they're too ignorant to realize it. Listen to songs like Codeine Crazy, March Madness, My Savages, etc., and you'll realize he has actual meaning in some of his songs and that it's not all hype, even though his hype songs are fire. From mixtapes like Monster and Beast Mode to albums like Pluto and DS2, along with hits like Mask Off and Used to This, he kills every song and there is no reason why he isn't on top. He's got the voice, the flow, actual bars sometimes, and the hit-making skills. What a legend, Future Hendrix.

A lot of people say he is trash, and if it weren't for autotune, he would be nowhere. Now, I'm not saying he doesn't use autotune, but if you watch any interview, his voice sounds already robotic, almost. If you watch his freestyles, he's honestly a pretty good rapper, and he also seems like a really cool guy.

A lot of people think Future is trash, but his 2014 - 2015 run can't be topped by any other artist on this list.

Monster - WATTBA is trap music at its peak. Period. Future's sound and content, combined with an ungodly amount of producers at their best, is the quintessential face of trap music.

4 Migos Migos is an American hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, Georgia, founded in 2008. They are composed of three rappers known by their stage names Takeoff, Quavo and Offset.

Their flow variety is the best. They made every trapper doing the "Migos Flow" on their jams. Plus, their lifestyle is pure trap.

They are lyrically good and murder every beat... I think they are good 1000 percent. That's abnormal, but they deserve it, yeah!

They are by FAR the best rap trio and I cannot stop listening to them. Absolutely love them!

5 Denzel Curry Denzel Rae Don Curry (born February 16, 1995) is an American rapper and songwriter from Miami Gardens, Florida. He released his debut full-length album, titled Nostalgic 64 on September 3, 2013. His second full-length album, titled Imperial, was released on March 9, 2016. His third album, Ta13oo, came out in 2018, and his next album, ZUU came less than a year later.

Great lyrics, great flow, great voice - he's the full package. And when he's got a good beat behind him, almost always, he's one of, if not the best, rapper in the game right now. Underrated.

Clout Cobain all day.

He's the best, no cap.

6 T.I. Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage names T.I. and Tip, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor born on September 25, 1980 in Atlanta, GA.

The king should be number 1, not Gucci Lame! I don't even like trap music that much anymore, but I like T.I. because he made intelligent trap music, nothing like the trap music of today. Gucci Mane just talks about stupid bs in every song. T.I. actually had a message in his trap music.

His beats aren't hardcore Southern trap beats, but T.I. is the only Southern rapper with good lyricism, good flow, and some cool beats. Just listen to What You Know, Dead and Gone, No Matter What, That's All She Wrote, Live Your Life, and the list goes on.

T.I. straight-up invented trap music, and so far, he and a handful of others, like Jeezy, Boosie, Big Kuntry, and Young Dro, are the only rappers to actually do it well. None of the people ahead of him should even be in the top 10 at all.

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

He's fully creative, that's the most important point. He works hard and makes something that entertains people. Great rapper and person.

Nice flow and voice, great production, catchy hooks, pretty good lyrics, it's lit.

Best sounding voice, best beats, best hooks, best everything.

8 Young Thug Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single 'Stoner', as well as other songs such as 'Check', 'Digits', and 'Best Friend' He's also known for making albums/mixtapes such as Barter 6, Slime Season 3, I'm Up, Jeffery, Beautiful Thugger Girls and So Much Fun.

People don't give this guy a chance, but he actually makes good songs. And if you actually read the lyrics of his good songs, he is kinda lyrical.

Hands down the best trap rapper! Young Thug's flows are crazy! Nobody raps better than him currently.

He's the GOAT and the most unique rapper ever!

9 Kevin Gates Kevin Jerome Gilyard, better known by his stage name Kevin Gates, is an American rapper, singer, and entrepreneur from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

I agree with you, but La Familia is a terrible example. He is a Dow Jones rapper (up-and-down). One song he'll kill it, and the next, he will rhyme a bunch of elementary bull over a hard beat.

How is Kevin not higher up on here? He is definitely in the Trap section and is amazing. La Familia, for example, is amazing.

Should for sure be higher up. He has raw storytelling with smooth flow. The Luca Brasi Story was a great play-through album, Islah was great as well.

10 A$AP Rocky Rakim Mayers, better known by his stage name ASAP Rocky, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Harlem, New York.

I like A$AP Rocky very much. He is one of the best American rappers, but not a trap rapper.

Love his music.

The Contenders
11 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.

His song 'Look at Me' is hella lit but very vulgar and graphic, like a lot of his other music, which involves angry, violent, and overly sexual lyrics. However, he is not a one-trick pony and explores other genres besides trap, such as rock and indie. His slower, deeper songs are lyrical and creative, though. Pretty deep stuff.

He died for the fans, his death cannot be a coincidence. He created the albums "?" and "Skins." There is a collaboration between him and Lil Pump.

Most influential rapper of this entire generation. The whole 90s and 2000s babies era.

12 Yo Gotti Mario Mims, better known by his stage name Yo Gotti, is an American rapper. In 1996, Gotti released his debut album Youngsta's On a Come Up under the alias Lil Yo.

Yo Gotti is not new to the game. His major label debut came out in 2003. He hasn't had major mainstream attention until 2016 with his song with Nicki Minaj, but he has been getting played on rap radio since at least 2009 when he dropped that "Women Lie Men Lie" song with Lil Wayne.

A true voice of the streets here.

Yo Gotti is the best.

13 Juicy J Jordan Houston, known by his stage name Juicy J, is an American rapper from Memphis, Tennessee. He was originally part of the Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia (originally called Triple 6 Mafia), however he would leave the group and sign to Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang in exchange for more money and solo success. He's often criticized for being a sellout and for having very mindless lyrics and only rapping... read more
14 2 Chainz Tauheed Epps, known by his stage names 2 Chainz and formerly Tity Boi, is an American rapper from College Park, Georgia, and is often regarded as one of the most mediocre rappers of recent years. He started out in the southern rap duo Playaz Circle with fellow rapper Dolla Boy, before he would become a solo artist and change his stage name. He is known for songs such as No Lie, Birthday Song, Spend... read more
15 Chief Keef Keith Farelle Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

Even though he's a bit underrated and sounds like someone that gets triggered in every song, he is amazing. He makes fire beats like I Don't Like, Love Sosa. The others are considered the best just because of a one-hit wonder. I do like Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, and Migos. So, if you're into trap, then maybe you should check him out. You might love Sosa.

My favorite player is Butler, and I have a butler...

Best rapper of all time.

16 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.

Waka and Lex, along with Future, pioneered modern trap.

Waka is rugged.

17 Ace Hood Antoine McColister, better known by his stage name Ace Hood, is an American rapper. He was born in Port St. Lucie, Florida and raised in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

Unlike Plies, Jeezy, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, and other mainstream southern rappers from the 2000s, this dude can actually spit.

Ace Hood is one of the best.

18 Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Ross raps from the perspective of a drug lord, not a low-level trap dealer.

Rick Ross is a boss.

19 Young Jeezy Young Jeezy is a hip hop artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He is most known for his album "Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101", his loud, distinctive rap voice, his song "Put On", his longtime beef with rapper Gucci Mane, and for his tough talk and street lyrics.

TM101 pioneered trap and even rap in general. Even artists like Kendrick have recognized the influence.

Jeezy is the hood favorite. Yo Gotti comes close, and behind him, Future and Gucci.

Jeezy is the best in my mind. Him and Gucci is like Kobe and Jordan.

20 Playboi Carti

Beats are fire.

Already a goat. Dropped two huge albums of the trap scene in self-titled and Die Lit.

21 Ski Mask the Slump God Stokeley Clevon Goulbourne, born April 18, 1996, is an American rapper and songwriter from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is well known for his goofy and sometimes nonsensical lyrics and songs and his fast flows, as well as for collaborating with the late XXXTentacion.

Best flow in the game.

He is great, has good flow. I would put him up there with legends. Iconic.

Should be in the top 5.

22 Lil Boosie Torrence Hatch, born November 14, 1982, is an American rapper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He released his first independent album 'Youngest of the Camp' in 2000, followed by "For My Thugs" in 2002. He released two collaboration albums with Webbie, Ghetto Stories in 2003 and Gangsta Musik in 2004. In 2006, he released his first major label album, (third solo studio album overall), 'Bad Azz', which... read more
23 Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Just too nice with it...come on, keep it 100, ain't many out there that can even stand on the same stage as Drake...the future Jay Z in the making.

He's the most seen.

She told me, Do you love me? I only take it partly. I only love my bed and my mama, I'm sorry.

24 Lil B Brandon Christopher McCartney, professionally known as Lil B and often known as The BasedGod, is an American rapper, record producer, author, activist and motivational speaker from Berkeley, California. He is often regarded as the pioneer of cloud rap.
