Worst Rapper Alive

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.

When I was in elementary school, some kids would blast his song Crank That through their cell phones and dance like dweebs. I wanted to literally rip the hair off of my shins and throw the phones into the nearest body of water. I had no clue who Lil Wayne was at the time, so if you make me choose between that and Lil Wayne, I am so going with Lil Wayne.

Don't understand how anyone can listen to Pac, Biggie, Jay Z, Eminem or even Kanye and then turn around and call Soulja Boy, Lil Wayne and Hurricane Chris "rap". Also, I know it's been said, but how the hell did Em get on this list? Every other list on this site has him on their top ten, and usually in the top three at that haha. This list is s JOKE.

Commercial and fake rapper...sick and tired of these fake guys like him, drake, Wayne, Eminem acting, rapping and dressing like they are hard or gansters when they are not, they never were and never will be... the only people who buy their stuff or should I say steal download their it are white people and girls that don't even know what real rap and hip hop is!

This is the one list I have put soulja boy. And I'm still in doubt. Is he a rapper? Is he even a musician? He is the lowest point of all music if he is. But he is apparently a rapper in the eyes of the general public, and if he is, he is definitely the worst.

2 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.

I'm not gonna fully explain why I chose Lil Wayne, but it's rappers like him, soulja boy, nicki minaj, drake, etc. that make me think hip hop is dead. 20 years ago, I could've listed a thousand good hip hop artists or rappers and nowadays I could say that they paved the road leading to all these new, horrible rappers, but that is such a disgrace to see what their good work was turned into by these horrible rappers like lil Wayne. Sure I can't hate on them because I don't rap myself, but in the case of lil Wayne, I think anyone is allowed to hate on him! He is just bad, no question about it. I respect people who like him, but I also stand by my opinion, and I think a lot of people could agree with me that he is one of the, if not, the worst rapper in history, and I'm glad soulja boy is up there too because he is also horrible.

I think Soulja Boy is technically worse than Lil Wayne, but the good thing about Soulja Boy is that after he had a couple hits, he faded away into obscurity, and his success seemed more like a fluke than anything else.

Lil Wayne, however, is not just a bad rapper. He's an influential bad rapper that not only refuses to go away, but is also polluting the airwaves with other bad rappers from his label. Also, although I said that he's technically better than Soulja Boy, his material from 2013 is absolute garbage, especially songs like Love Me and Karate Chop.

Lil Wayne wasn't that bad when he started out, but over the year's he's gotten worse and worse. He's definitely the worst out right now, only Chief Keef is worse than he is. The dude's garbage, his beats are generic and bad, his lyrics are absolutely retarded (listen to his verse on "Bandz A Make Her Dance", just terrible) and his voice is so damn annoying. If you say he's a great rapper, then you need to look up what real hip-hop is.

Lil Wayne is horrible. He can't rap what so ever. Eminem is on this list because of him. It only takes one little kid whos GPA is less than his Call of Duty K/D who sits around and listens to Lil Wayne to put a rapper on this list. And yes, 2pac and Notorius B.I.G. were very good rappers and will be missed by true fans of the genre, but just because they came before Eminem and were shot doesn't mean it is wrong to think Eminem is better.

3 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

Nicki Minaj is not a real rapper. And her lyrics make no sense. Anyone who likes this phony is also a joke. Also, what is up with her voice? And why are Eminem and Pitbull on this list? Nicki Minaj is the HUGEST joke in rap/hip-hop right now.

Apparently you don't have to be a good female rapper to get into the industry anymore.All you need is some big boobs and a big ass. Honestly! What a embarrassment and joke! Nicki is lucky she has some single, horny 20 year old male fans who enjoy seeing women half naked.

She uses a bigger vocabulary than Tupac and Snoop Dogg, But that doesn't make her good, She is so trash and annoying someone would actually destroy their computer by eating it while listening to her...

Just a joke in general. She really does need a reality check. She's not even no way near as clever as Lil Kim. Can you imagine if she started out in the late 90s- early 00s? She would've been eatin alive by the world.because we all no that's when music made since. She will be over by 2015. Wonder what her she really looks like underneathe that gimmick

4 Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Pitbull may be one of the "rappers" from the early 2010's, and he probably stopped making songs, but listen to him. EVERY Pitbull song is about sex, money, parties, and girls, and he randomly speaks Spanish to make him look talented when he's talentless. He can't sing, dance or act to save his life, and the girls he hangs out with have plastic bodies, and they probably ghost-write Pitbull's lyrics for him, because apparently he can't SING. I do respect your opinion if you like his music, but STILL, don't listen to him. He's nothing more than perverted white trash who has zero talent.

Every song of his I hear, I love the chorus and then I hear his voice and shut it off. Pitbull can't prove anything to me at this point, I can't stand his voice and the terrible rhymes he comes up with or whoever comes up with the garbage that comes out of his mouth

He raps about nothing but partying and picking up chicks. Also, he makes some really awful lyrical choices. Only Pitbull would go so low as to rhyme "Kodak" with "Kodak" or write lines like "She don't wrestle but I got her in a headlock". Classy.

I hate him so much
Every Pitbull song includes:
-Girls in parties
-Rich parties
-Money in boats and houses
-Money being thrown at people
-Girls being invited to parties
-His ignorance.

5 Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

Who in their god damn mind listed
Drake
Nicki Minaj
Kanye West?
Nicki is the queen of rap, while Kanye is a lyric genius, and if you don't like Drake then you're absolutely crazy. The man has mad vocals and his music is literal poetry it's brilliance! The number one person on here should be Pitbull and Tyga. They are the most unoriginal, basic rappers I can think of. The only thing Tyga can rap about is sex and drugs. His music is all the same and a disgrace to the music industry. He lacks creativity and I find him to be untalented. Just look at the dude's lyrics.

He was embarrassed by the music industry. His voice is really annoying. His music videos are too repetitive. He can get really repetitive and can have some of the worst lyrics in history (ex. "rack city chick, rack rack city chick"). He collaborated with label-mate Iggy Azalea, another bad rapper. He has the exact same flow in every single one of his songs. His song "Stimulated" is considered by many to be one of the worst songs ever written. He was also dated by a 16 year old Kylie Jenner despite the fact that the legal age in California was 18 at the time. The fact that he was also 7 years older than Jenner didn't help either.

Most of his songs ranged from mediocre to absolutely horrible. Rack City was awful. Stimulated was obviously one of his worst yet.

I couldn't decide if I should vote for Lil' Wayne, Soulja Boy, or Tyga, but in the end I went with Tyga because rack city is the worst song I've ever heard. It shocks me that this list indicates that Eminem isn't the best rapper, but is in fact worse than Chanel West Coast, Nelly, MC Hammer, Waka Flocka Flame, Birdman, and Nick Cannon. Eminem freestyles so well and would destroy any of these people in a battle.

6 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".

This guy is just bad. How he can actually consider himself a rapper is anyone's guess. It really seems as if his producers are playing a joke on society. The joke is to promote a terrible singer to make the black community feel anyone can be a rapper. So, instead of working hard and getting out of the ghettos these young kids think if, someone as bad as Drake can make it, I can too. Meanwhile, money comes pouring from these poor manipulated youth. All because radio stations are getting paid to replay these awful lyrics and weak rhymes. As, long as the poor stay poor by making them believe an unattainable dream, we will have this sad excuse for an artist. This is not rap. This guy just sucks. I don't even have words to explain how bad this guy is. Yea. The jokes on him. They made him and they will break him. Let's all hope the rug gets pulled out from under him and he becomes the biggest laughing stock in the industry. He might even take his own life. Haha. Now, that would be funny.

Drake essentially copied an entire verse from Rappin 4 Tay's song Player's Club. I'm pretty sure he got a relatively huge lawsuit for copyright infringement. Say what you like, but the genre has changed. Real heads in the 90's at least new how to tell the real from the fake and call out the wack or phony rappers, unlike kids nowadays. Copying an entire verse is just downright disrespectful. I don't think the Drake is the worst person to touch a mic, but I am shocked more people aren't at least disappointed by the fact that he pretended someone else's work was his own.

After so much hype, when I finally got round to listening to Drake's stuff I was disgusted. How have we gone from the likes of Tupac, Biggie, Cube, Jay Z, Dre, Eminem, Cool J, Busta, DMX to this monotone, no flow, no energy, repetitive fool. Not that many of the people on this list are much better. Seriously though take eminem off, fair enough if you feel he's a bit overrated but he's clearly nowhere near one of the worst.

Rihanna �" Work (feat. Drake) - Treating her like a prostitute in a little hotel room, awesome respect for women. Great achievements for our society. All supporters of these wannabe artists should be fired. That guy can do nothing. He can�'t sing, rap, dance, play any kind of instrument. Why is he even there? Looks like real skill and talent means nothing nowadays. The best are unknown! Bruce Lee once said: "Showing off is the fool's idea of glory." but that guy does not even have something to show off.

7 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.

Just listen to the song Kim. All you need. He offers no lyrical content, as his music is so shallow and there is nothing to get past the surface. Yes, he is technically talented, there is no doubt of that. However, believe it or not, there are artists out there who are much better than him. To find these people, do not listen to the radio. Do not listen to the celebrity music. Formulate your own opinions on all the music you listen to. Give as many listens to different artists. Hence the word ARTISTS. Not businessmen. People who actually celebrate the culture of hip hop. Not those who exploit it. Music is supposed to be a beautiful thing. It brings people together, it brings out emotions you would usually hide throughout your life. It is beautiful art. But many artists, including Eminem, use it to separate, exclude, and profit off of. One example is his use of the word "f*****" as this word only discriminates to people who were born with a different sexual preference. This is truly ...more

Eminem isn't one of the worst of all time but I get why people voted him on here, he's one of the most overrated. he's a legend of rap but he's overhyped by people who only listen to Eminem's rap and by the new age of internet. If internet was around in the 90s a lot of rappers would be comsidered better then Eminem EASILY.

I think Eminem got popular just because he was kinda the first rapper whose lyrics white people can comprehend fully and he was actually not bad with the lyrics. But I feel he has no place in top 10 worst and at the same time not close to being in top 10 of all time.

This non talent having so and so has the same flow on every song and little lyrical content. He only has a basic concept of lyricism and falls back on linking nonsense rhymes together. He doesn't even have any concious raps. He's just riding on that white dominant culture thing.

8 Chief Keef Keith Farelle Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

Dude what why is mostly everybody on here black and what y'all think rap suppose to be like; not that corny white people rap about. All of everybody on this list make millions. Chief keef GBE 300 Lil Reese all them from Chicago. In the video ( Lil Reese feat. Chief Keef : Traffic ) chief keef has on a shirt.

I'd rather be listening to " Massive Attack" by Nicki minaj millions and millions of times in a row no matter how much my ear's hurt.

This guy is an ugly stupid idiot who appears in every video with no shirt on and dancing around a bunch of his goons.

Real talk, he's the worst rapper. Please vote for this guy.

9 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 ...read more.

What kind of name is "2 chainz"? Brush doesn't belong in the rap game, and can't even get respect in frisco; the dude got chased at gun point. NIG RAN LIKE A LIL wack mutha then denied the incident ever happening but there's a security tape. " my dick so hard it make the metal detector go off"... What?..

2 Chainz guy is not any type of lyricist, how can he even be considered an artist?

HE has the worst lyrics out there. HE makes no sense and has not flow. I can't believe he isn't #1

He is way too low on this list. The lyrics to his songs are ridiculous.

10 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.

I don't even thinks he considers himself a rapper so I don't believe he should even be on this list. I'm fairly certain he started "rapping" (if you call it that) to show people how easy it is to actually become successful in todays hip hop industry. I honestly think it's hilarious that people have even heard of him, so you gotta give him credit for that.

Pretty sure I could write a better rap if I vomited up a can of alphabet soup and wrote down what I saw. I'm not saying he should be #1, but he should definitely be higher on the list. Much higher.

I'd rather listen to nails on a chalkboard than this uneducated nig with no flow, and an even worse album title.

He shouldn't be on this list. He actually could spit he just chooses not to.

The Contenders
11 Silento Richard Lamar Hawk, better known by his stage name Silentó, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is best known for his debut single "Watch Me", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.

He sucks but thankfully a one hit wonder, that's the only reason he is not higher on the list.

He sucks terribly and his song sounds like a child wrote it.

12 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.

How can he rhyme the n-word with itself and still be getting those bomb-ass beats from Lex? This guy has no lyrics or flow and he's getting crazy beats that should be going to TI Em and Tech N9ne.

This guy is terrible and doesn't know how to deliver without having to say his name in every sentence. He has a screaming problem and would probably fit Heavy Metal than Hip Hop.

He is a TERRIBLE rapper. I can't believe nobody hasn't put him as the worst rapper.B.O. B seriously? He shouldn't be on this list. Waka Flocka has no vocabulary and has a terrible name. We don't need to hear this guy's name like 20 times in a song.

No, it's not a Pokemon attack.

13 Future

Future is Wack and spites Negative Lyrics such as it's Cool to be A Druggie!

What the F is he saying? Damn can't hear a word! He sounds like he's taking a dump

He is good especially his new collaboration with Drake one of the best Trap Artists

14 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. ...read more.

I think Gucci deserves to be higher because not only is he a bad rapper, but a bad person too. Gucci Lame killed someone. Gucci Undeserving Of Being Famous took the life away from an innocent person. Even if he was good, he would never be a good person and he will never be forgiven by me.

Ignorance. Gucci has one of the best flows ever, and has incredibly creative lyrics. People just judge him by the cover, but he's actually an incredibly talented and prolific (unbelievably prolific) rappers in the past decade.

I don't like this guy all that much, but even I wouldn't put him on this list or even at number 13. He has an alright flow, he's not even that bad compared to some other guys on here (cough cough Chief Keef cough cough)

His lyrics are retarded, and he barely has a grasp on the English language. Seriously, how could anyone possibly like him?

15 Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.

I am surprised but also not surprised Kanye is not in the top ten for this. His producing career has been average though I do feel a 5 year old kid could make some of his riffs on a computer. Yes some of his lyrics are good however most are not and the way he personally raps them are poor, rhythmically not stimulating and to be honest boring.
Some of his big songs have mainly come from other big songs I.e. Gold Digger taken from Ray Charles.
Lastly the amount of auto tuning used for his songs is ridiculous. When I went to Glastonbury Festival this year and saw him live he was very out of tune with most of his songs. (I'm sure a few of you have seen him attempt Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen on YouTube)
However everyone thinks he's so great? His albums are rated so high by critics?
I feel people like him because with is arrogance brings agression, self belief, over confidence out in people, and playing fairly heavy bass notes in his songs just makes the music sound more ...more

He's a wicked rhyming rapper! Nope! Just sucks! A no talent hack, riding along with the self glossing kardashians. If he were Caucasian, he would be labeled as the biggest joke in history. He'd be a mockery to hip hop as a racist weird al yankovic so to speak.

Most people who hate on his music haven't even listened to it. And the reason is he is a dickhead. But one should learn to seperate craft and the idiot making it. MBDTF and The College Dropout are two of many incredible albums.

Kanye has one good song stronger, that is it other than that he is racist and is famous because of publicity by pulling kardashian stunts.

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

The only things that are good about a Rick Ross album are the production and the features. Rick Ross has never been a good rapper. A big joke is what he is. You take name of a former drug dealer. You diss the guy calling him a snitch when he comes up with a plan of you both doing something positive in the community. Yet you have no problem using his name. Yeah smart move Mr. Wannabe Boss.

A Rapper who's entire persona is based around Drug dealing and Criminal Activities when the worst thing Rick has ever done is get caught trying to smoke dope in his hotel room... Started beef with 50 cent and got Owned. Was a Correctional Officer... REAL Gangster... Barks in songs... In my opinion the total worst rapper and major FAKE!

Yeah I Totally Agree. He used to be a Parole Officer and now he acts like the Richest and Greatest Rapper Alive. He also acts like the biggest Drug dealer. This dawg needa Give up on his "Rap Career" and go work at McDonalds or worst a Sweeper

He sucks. He took his name from an ex-drug dealer named Freeway Rick Ross. And he was a Correctional Officer before he became a rapper. What a joke.

17 John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. ...read more.

Yow.. What? Eminem shouldn't be on this list. He's the best rapper ever! Best lyrics, Best voice, Best everything! Eminem has won more grammy's than any rapper can dream of! Seriously, em shouldn't be on the list.

He sucks, his only rap is his theme... he makes no sense and just waves his hand over his face, he is worse than lil Wayne

What? He's not even a rapper! Also why is Eminem here he shouldn't be on this list! His songs are badass

Stick to fake wrestling cena, by the way, eminem is the best, I hate people who have to hate because they like old school

18 Will Smith Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He is best known for his acting career overall. He has been in many popular movies, These include, but are not limited to, the Men in Black franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, ...read more.

Guy's... wait seriously. I remember hearing him on the playground back in East Philly ( FYI: where I was born and raised). I used to spend most of my days, relaxing or playing basketball outside the school. Anyway, these guys started causing trouble in my neighborhood. Will was there and got in 1 fight and his mom got scared. She sent him off to live with his Aunt and Uncle Phil in Bellaire." Smell-ya-later.

Dr. Seuss rhymes that says it all. He s no rapper, and he can't act and he's not even funny, hated his show, look at him in that show he looks like a pathetic over grown, big ears, dork trying to be a white guy, what a disgrace! If anyone considers him a rapper is sickening its like saying he's equal to 2pac, disgusting trash

He's a good actor not a good rapper. How the did my 3 favorite rappers get in the top 15? Eminem, jay z and pitbull. Lil' Wayne's all right but overrated. His only really amazing song is drop the world.

Will Smith is a good actor, also he did good on the show and the song "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" He shouldn't be on this list.

19 Lil Chuckee

He sucks! Young money is a mess! Why did wayne sign him?!?!

Who is Lil Chuckie like seriously?

Who is this guy

20 Nick Cannon Nicholas Scott "Nick" Cannon is an American rapper, actor, comedian, entrepreneur, record producer, radio and television personality.

Corny, unskilled, and even tried to make a diss on Eminem.

Always trying to be someone else, something he never should have tried was attempting to be a rapper

Not the worst, and not the best.

21 Birdman

This list is definitely in the wrong order. The whole list. I don't like any of the wrappers in the top 10, but the farther down the list I got, I began to see that 11-20 should have been 1-10, and vice-versa.

Why is Eminem here? You peeps who voted for Em have no taste in music! > why would he be here that's just messed up people! Everyone knows he's the king of rap

How is Birdman better than Wayne when wayne writes for Big Bird. Then Birdman sounds even worse than Lil Wayne.

Eminem? This list is fixed! Birdman just chant's a lot and hides behind shadows. He should be up there!

22 Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American-Senegalese singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

What the hell is Eminem doing in this list? Akon is the worst singer ever..! He must learn to sing! I don't know how can he be better than eminem? I think people haven't listened songs of eminem! They are so inspiring and eminem gives me spirit and courage to face all of my problems..! He is a legend! John cena is also very good rapper...! Haters only hate what they can't have.. Anyways Rise Above Hate!

What? Akon isn't even a rapper he's a R&B singer who sings faster than most singers.

Akon is awesome and he's not a rapper.

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

He should be higher than Eminem because Eminem is such a great artist.

He's what everyone thinks a 'wigger' looks like. And his raps range from awful to atrocious.

He's the creator of the whole wigger image. Some guy who had nothing to do with the hood, watched too much hip hop videos and would be like "yeah I wanna do that! ", and thinks to himself that he's a legit MC.

The guy is a joke.

24 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and former stripper.
25 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 ...read more.

He used to be a good rapper when he was in Three 6 Mafia, but since he went mainstream not so much. His flow is pretty good (but usually the same in every song), his songs are usually pretty good and fun to listen to, he's pretty entertaining, but ever since he went mainstream his subject matter is lacking and he has lost any good lyricism he ever had. I mean, you can only spit generic lines about money, hoes, drugs and guns for so long before it gets tired. Sure he rapped about those things before, but back then he was usually telling a story or painting a picture of life in the hood, now he just spits generic lines about nonsense similar to Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. His beats go hard and he has a great rap voice and presence he just needs to actually put more thought in his raps.

He sucks so bad I hate even hearing his voice!
