22 DJ Khaled DJ Khaled Khaled Mohamed Khaled, known professionally as DJ Khaled, is an American record producer, radio personality, DJ and record label executive.

Not a rapper - DaWyteNight

He isn't a rapper, he doesn't sing or make beats, why is he on this list.

DJ Khaled sucks everything he has ever put out is trash


Dj Khaled is the worst rapper, almost forgot, he is not a rapper, he ruins good rap songs by going "dj, Khaled" - kok2

24 NF NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician from Gladwin, Michigan.

His Christian beliefs and faith are what hold him back from being higher up on this list but honestly, he deserves respect for pumping out straight fire that rubs against media and what other rappers have to say. His beats are dope, his lyrics are unlike any other and he's even been compared to Eminem. This guy is amazing!

With some great new singles and a new upcoming album this fall, NF is proving to continue making great music! - LarkwingFlight

Honestly the best in my opinion, can't compare him to Eminem, NF has his own style with rap and hip-hop.

Should be top ten for sure - m18230

25 Lil Yachty Lil Yachty

Trash mumble rap

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.

He doesn't belong on the list of rappers since he doesn't consider himself one. But he's great overall no doubt.

lil boat - Killerdrummer

29 23 Savage
30 Kodak Black Kodak Black

This guy is the worst - venomouskillingmachine

Hood lyrics, legendary bars

Kodak has a lot of talent that would be obvious to see if he wouldn't mumble as much and speak more clearly

32 SpongeBozz SpongeBozz Dimitri Chpakov, better known by his stage names SpongeBozz and Sun Diego, is a German rapper of Russian descent born on March 17th, 1989. more.

On the 18:30 minute song "Apocalyptic Infinity" alone he showcases such a huge variety of flows (including a goosebumps doubletime part at least as impressive as Eminem's "Rap God" part), rhyming structures, careful observations on both the German and American hip hop scenes and their respective evolutions, and a perfect symbiosis with Digital Drama's lush and blissfully overproduces beat work, that every other rapper looks an amateur next to him. I wonder how he will be able to top that (I completely praised his 2015 debut album, but this year his second album completely blew it away - maybe his third will do the same). - Martin_Canine

SpongeBozz dropped his second album in early June, a double disc album with over 115 minutes of music, divided into two parts.
Disc 1 is a personal counter attack on all the people who betrayed and attacked him - especially his former friend turned archenemy Kollegah, Germany's most acclaimed and popular rapper at the moment, but also others. The album also deals with Jewish origin and his family. He demasked himself for this disc.
Disc 2 is a sequel to his debut album, and he raps in-character as SpongeBozz, a deranged violent cartoon character on drugs. He still disses the people he attacked on disc 1, but less personally and seriously, and more in a hollywood movie kind of way.
He delivers both discs with maximum lyrical and technical skill, he constantly rhymes at a level that surpasses Eminem, sometimes uses exceptionally fast double time rapping and perfectly uses several different flows. All of this is perfectly showcased on the 18:30 minute epic "Apocalyptic ...more - Martin_Canine

Ignore the SpongeBob costume, this is only so that people don't know his identity. Focus on the flow, the beat and especially how many syllables he rhymes (even if you don't understand German, you can hear that this is unusually complex): v=yMfgjVlGbUE - Martin_Canine

33 Hopsin Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California.

Hopsin should be top 10, undoubtedly

You hopsin is top 10 for sure. Get these ratchet ass rappers out of here.

His ill mind series is the best, top 10 indeed

Great lyricist, and great messages in his songs. definitely top 15 over trash uzi and kodak black.

34 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

He's my favorite rapper. He should be in the top ten. MGK has been working his butt off and I love that. His lyrics are also so deep.

MGK killed literally every track he's been on. He's enjoying life more than most other rappers. Apart from his overboosted bass savage songs, he also makes songs with some really good story on it. Lace up.

He should be in the top 5

He is the best. why is he at 34. he should be at top ten. he is realistic. just listen to his song closer. feel it. He is the truth and the best.

39 A Boogie wit da hoodie

A boogie isn't all that yet but wit a lil practice and more music that's is just him spitting straight bars or with the melodic flows he'll be a rising rapper and be a young legend just like Drizzy Drake

40 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

Nicki Minaj is one of the best rappers out right now. Her wordplay and cleverness is unmatched. There aren't many rappers out right now that make you think. There is a reason why she's worked with rappers like Nas, Jay-Z, Cam-ron, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem. If your favorite rappers can see the talent, why can't you?

She's not a rapper I'm sad now

She is perfect
