Best Rappers of 2017Ark-M
The Top Ten
HIS the one and only Kendrick lamar
The album "DAMN" just dropped. I'm 99.9% sure nothing is going to top this this year. Greatest of all time now, Kendrick Lamar
There's no stopping Kendrick he is just showing everyone he is changing rap evolution and being one of the greatest...
Heck yeah he's #1V 110 Comments
Drake is literally the definition of cancer. His ass should have been taken off life support on degrassi when his ass was shot. Wheelchair having crippled muppet looking ass.
Considering drakes versatility he is one of the greatest rappers alive. He can make great hits like hotline bling to shoeing he can spit bars with back to back. He is at the top so a lot of hate is thrown his way. Hopefully people realize he is a walking legend now and not when he dead and then decide to listen.
Calling Drake a rapper is just wrong. He's alright, but not a rapper at all.
I love himV 43 Comments
He is probably the best up and coming rapper. He does not mumble and his music has depth. He also has very good lyrics and background music.
Almost every other rapper just mumbles and swears and talks about sex, drugs and money, but this music is modern poetry
How dare people put Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert over this guy he has the potential to be one of the greatest of all time!
He isn't screwed up - he is a good person who cares about his religionV 18 Comments
Should be above Drake for sure. Love the jazzy feel of his beats on his newest album. Not a bad album to date and each sound so different. One of the best lyricists today- brutally honest with a great flow and great rhymes. He's also able to educate and make you think in ways KRS-ONE would. He can tell stories like Nas. Always changing and evolving, yet he still sounds great in any song he's thrown into. Great producer. He's one of the few hip-hop artists I can listen to nowadays. Kendrick and Cole are too different to compare against each other, but both are great artists and take their art seriously
He is much different from all the other rappers today because he tells stories in all his songs and uses examples from reality such as social, economic, and government issues. He definitely deserves to be on the top.
We need more rappers like J. Cole. Has elite lyrics. Great producer, reminds me of nas a lot. Old school type beats that you can just vibe to. He's already a legend. Greatest rapper of the 10's in my opinion.
Better than drakeV 44 Comments
Best lyricist right now. Talks about real life scenarios. Doesn't talk about women, money, drugs 24/7. Definitely a man who everyone should consider to listen to. With his biracial existence and him addressing equality in his upcoming album titled "Everybody", everybody should hear what he has to say. Not to mention that him and his producers are making the hottest beats out right now.
Amazing lyricist and one of the best rappers today - he's so clever with his lyrics and his raps are real attention grabbers. His only real competition here could be Kendrick. Overall, Logic is very underrated..
The greatest rapper right now in my opinion. Not just with beats and flow with words, but with lyrics too. He raps about his drug related and violence filled life all the time in his songs. Being biracial, he knows what it's like to be discriminated on both sides, and uses that experience to rap and become one of the greatest rappers of this decade. Overall, Logic is the most underrated rapper out there and he is one of the best out there.
Should be number 3V 63 Comments
Very creative artist who can turn anything into a hit record
Ain't no one better than Kanye
Kanye is the best
Yeezy is the original and the best album life of pabloV 1 Comment
I honestly don't get how he is not listed as number one I have been studying the rap game whos been in and is beginning and the only rapper listed higher than him that's even close is kendrick be mad if you want or agree but no one competes with his lyrical skills or writing or freestyles definitely not his freestyles
Kendrick Lamar and Eminem are the best rapper in this generation! Kendrick is a consious and political rapper that is sleeping in many years, let the mumble rappers shine but now it is his prime, but Eminem is sleeping right now in rap scene but everyone still knows that he is the GOD of RAP and no body can defeat him.
I'm a huge Eminem fan in terms of 2017, Kendrick is already significantly the most successful and best. Hopefully Em will drop a new album soon... - ScorpiusYT
Best rapper in the world eminem name would be know for centuries to come best with everyting no one can beat this rapper love eminemV 58 Comments
An awesome rapper
He's awesome his music is the best love him so much my favorite!
Doesn't always have the deepest songs but always comes through with catchy beats. This dude doesn't think too much and just puts out fire songs that you can't get out of your head
He is best rapperV 63 Comments
He is the worst rapper - DaWyteNight
Future is the best when I went to summer jam and I seen future I was so happy I want to see him again
I think he is very good. I liked his beast mode album. He's a good rapper all around. - Lilsavage
Future is a good rappers.V 21 Comments
When I play goosebumps any girl let's me get in
Travis's songs are musically creative and well made. However, sometimes he seems to fall short on his lyrics
Despite using autotune in all his tracks he still got that flow which makes him a pretty dope rapper - Ark-M
He's underateV 11 Comments
Tech is a legend; he's been around for a long time and being independent he is always coming out with new albums. Always and mad flow of creativity. Don't over look the king of rappers.
Hard lyrics and creative flows with every single syllable on beat - Basecube
He top dog and on one can beat him and that is a fact and if someone says no he isn't Tech n9ne will hunt your ass down
People need to stop overlooking tech and realise he has ACCTUAL talent.
Funny how Big Sean is number 26 and Drake is number 2.. since Drake stole Big Sean's whole flow and has ghostwriters.. Big Sean is the most underrated rapper ever lol Top 5 easy!
Seriously? Drake doesn't even write his own lyrics... Big Sean is probably the most lyrical rapper of 2017, behind Kendrick Lamar
Should be top 5 this dude is amazing.
Should be #1V 12 Comments
He's not technically a great rapper. But his anti style approach to rap music, and experimentation in sound should be commended. What you may consider mumbly garbage to others is experimental and unique.
Trash mumble rap
He doesn't belong on the list of rappers since he doesn't consider himself one. But he's great overall no doubt.
Shut up guys, lil yatchys awesomeV 23 Comments
Like they all have flow and great ad libs and in January 2017 drop a fire album with like no bad songs
They should most definitely be in the top 10
I really like his latest songs
My babies I love they music I can turn up anytime to itV 9 Comments
He's not even relevant in 2017. His last decent album was in 2007 with American Gangster, he should hang it up. In my opinion he declined after he married beyonce. - DaWyteNight
He is didn't even make a song that hit the billboard since like 2015-2016
Jay Z ain't no scrub but definitely doesn't deserve to be in top 10 - dop_a_mine
OverratedV 3 Comments
Should be top 3, he's only 22 and more lyrical then most of these mumble rappers
More lyrical than all mumble rappers...also could be the next great one - HipHopAintDead
Listen to him freestyle! His lyrics are a joke he's easily top 5 and in my opinion he's top 3. Definitely should be above future.
Joey should be top 3! - DaWyteNight
He should be in the top five. Joey is one of a kindV 10 Comments
Whoever says he's made on song is retarded look at his soundcloud and look on youtube or look at anything else he has many songs and pretty much all of them have millions of hits, Look at Me blew up and made him mainstream but he is making more music since he got out of jail and he is going to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. He should by far be in the top 10, Drake shouldn't even be considered to be on the top 10 he doesn't even write his own lyrics.
When He raps I just blow away
Can spit fire whenever. - BryanMV 27 Comments
Check out some of his interviews and you'll see what that guy went trough... I know he's not lyrical but he don't have any education. He's song are straight fire tough the beat, the rhymes and his voice. Lot of bass and a mellow vibe! 10 bad in a mansion...
Possibly the most boring-sounding rapper to this day.
He go hard on his songs
Insanity, his life is one of the toughest youll ever hear about yet he still makes absolute fire songs. huge respectV 17 Comments
Not a rapper but definitely the best rap producer to this day. - ZDNSR
I like him.
If metro don't trust you I'm gona shoot u
Not a rapper - DaWyteNight
He isn't a rapper, he doesn't sing or make beats, why is he on this list.
He dropped some dope tracks this year - ThePhenomenalOne
