Best Rappers of 2018
The Top Ten Best Rappers of 2018
Words can barely describe how amazing this man is at his job. He beats out every other rapper in the game right now, and the only ones in history that he's not better that are Tupac and maybe Biggie Smalls. The only one on 2018 that even comes close to him is Kendrick. While Kamikaze isn't his best work, it's a hell of a lot better than Revival and whatever the other trash has been released in 2018. No one in the game right now will ever come close to him. Ever. He tells actual stories in his raps. He doesn't just rap about the modern rappers favorite subjects. Money, clothes, drugs, hoes, chains. He can spit hard, he can spit hella fast, and he can outfreestyle anyone. And he doesn't mumble. He's not the greatest role model, as he was once a druggie and has been arrested, he is not a bad person, unlike a lotta the other dudes in the game right now.
This web will be dead if eminem goes below to anything but 1 because that's where he should be
Interesting point but remember that other people have their opinion too. - AlphaQ
Came from a fairly big disappointment in Revival with one goal, to shush the haters, and oh boy did he do that. Kamikaze was my personal favorite album of 2018. Pure genius.
The guy said so many stuff already and yet he can say so much more that's how good he is easily the best rapper of all time aas well as this year
I just don't see what's so special about him. His voice is so irritating, and there's nothing unique about his music. People say he's lyrical, but I don't see what's so lyrical about saying "Sit down, be humble. Sit down, be humble" a thousand times.
Listen to some of his other songs. The other person who replied is correct about everything. - The01Bro
The most overrated "lyrical" rapper of our time. Plus, he hasn't even done anything this year! - DaWyteNight
Uh, the Black Panther soundtrack? Did you even pay attention to music in 2018? - damariwave
Why is he here? He hasn't even done anything this year. - RnBLover
Kendrick Lamar is the best lyricist that is in the rap game in 2018. His flows, creative bars, and beautiful storytelling leads me to believe that his is the best rapper of 2018. If you hate him, look at his original works like "How Much Does A Dollar Cost" and then come talk.
Xxxtentacion was great and there's no argument there. These people that are saying "Yeah X was irrelevant and just looking for clout and not a real rapper" is not true at all. These same people talk nonsense and they actually haven't fully taken time to listen to his music and his lyrics. Now a days rappers just want to pop a pill and the people that like these rappers will say that they are better than X. You guys need to listen to music that someone took from there heart and he took all of his life challenges and out it into amazing songs that no one ever really disliked. You don't find a rapper that can sing so many types of genres, like really. So many people that were fighting inside themselves listened to his music found refuge in it and didn't do something like take there life or slit their wrist. So those hater's out there think twice about what you say about him cause one day when you pass what are people going to say about you and how you impacted your community or wait ...more
XXXtentacion is a legend his muzic is amazing and he should be #1 on the list.
Definitely one of the most versatile rappers in the history of rap. He has the ability to perform all genres of music. Not only this but he has helped so many young teens through hard times (including myself)
Best artist of all time no questions. RIP XXX
Come on really? Best artist of all time? These comments are getting insane just because the man is dead people have to act like he was better than he really was. - DaWyteNight
I honestly had really grown tired of listening to music listened through all of Eminem's songs etc.. and then I found Logic.
I think that Logic is super underrated and that he should get a lot more notice for the hard work that he puts into his songs
Best rapper in 2018 hands down
I think he should be higher than kendrick - IHaveGreatTaste
Sure, Kendrick is good, but did he really drop anything good this year besides all the stars? J. Cole is probably the deepest rapper on this list, even if he can get repetitive sometimes. Oh yeah, KOD best album of 2018 just saying
Literally the most boring rapper on the planet at least he has a kid now so he has to focus on being a dad and can't rap as much
You obviously haven't listened to Wale, Fabolous, 21 Savage, Young Dolph, Gucci Mane and Big Sean then. - DaWyteNight
Lyrically the greatest
He has gotten so much great songs that all my squad puts now when we go to high school he should be the next big star and I wanna see logic and J Cole competed for this spot cause Eminem is not a good rapper anymore
This dude is trash, he just sounds like a lil wayne clone with his voice - HYBRID
He makes the best songs than any other singer in the united states!
You can actually understand what he says.
He's corny to me. Not just what he says but also the way he raps, he reminds me of kendrick lamar with that same annoying voice. Plus, he hasn't even released anything in 2018 has he? And his verse on "No Brainer" by DJ Khaled was more than questionable. - DaWyteNight
He's actually a pretty good rapper who brings something new to the table, I was one of those people who always thought he only rapped about money, hoes and drugs, but then I really took the time to listen to him. Yes, he does rap about those things, but he's actually good at it unlike most rappers who do that. And even some underground rappers rap about that stuff a lot.
Asap is good, but I wouldn't say he is better than Logic. He is definitely better than wack ass denzel curry though, that's for sure.
Brought a whole different style to rap, young flashy pimp styles. Definitely top 10.
Always loved asap rocky, no he's not the best of 2018. But he really did put a whole new spin on rap culture itself. Love that I got to see him rise back in 2012-13, hope there is more to come.
Hell no, Drake's music is boring and is basically Rap for people who don't like Rap and he's more of an R&B singer than a rapper. - RiverVibeZ
Drake is generic and god's plan is boring, it's time for Drake to go away I think. - DaWyteNight
Yeah he's overrated no matter how good he is because he's like HALF THE damn BILLBOARD I swear the people there like worship the guy. - TheInsomniac
He sucks. Like. Bad.
Everybody who said he should go is obviously stupid. Did you not hear 0-100? Started From the Bottom? Energy? THE ENTIRE MORE LIFE ALBUM? He actually has deep lyrics that also rhyme. He has the best flows, best beats, not best lyrics but really good lyrics. He deserves to be in the top 5 at minimum, and number 2 or 3 at maximum.
Drake is just another garbage rapper, he is not even a rapper, he doesn't even write his lyrics - HYBRID
This dude's rap career is over and he's only still relevant because he's with Beyoncé.
This clown should've stayed retired. - DaWyteNight
He's what Eazy called a studio gangster. DMX and countless others eat his hard knock life azz up like the rest of these "rappers" I can't figure out if this list is real or taken from the Onion - Cush77
His line in that drake song is hella clean
He is actual trash. Ta13oo was horrible. Just him screaming his head off on every song, nothing worth being heard screamed.
I really don't understand why so many people hate on denzel curry, he is extremely talented, and even if you don't like his style of music, you have to admit that he is talented
Eh...he's alright but nothing special. Some of my friends can even rap better than him. - sexygirllova
Better than Kendrick lamar - DaWyteNight
Note: People are only voting for XX because he's dead. But X beat up a pregnant woman and his song Sad! Has a suicide joke. - TeamRocket747
Lyrically one of the best not only now, but this century. Always a powerful message in his albums also, whenever I show people his music they always want more.
His songs are meaningful unlike most of these new rappers, and you can actually understand him.
Better than kendrick, denzel curry, chance the rapper, xxxtentacion, drake and everyone above him.
Nasir was disappointing. Kanye sucks. What was Nas thinking? A 7 track album? - ILikeSexyGirls
Should be higher Nas is one of the greatest rappers of all times and is still making albums - germshep24
Nas should be higher than X and Drake
Him and Kanye make a good team of sucking at making music together. - ILikeSexyGirls
Just mindless hate from you, no actual valid points of criticism or anything along those lines. - damariwave
Overhyped garbage. - TheArtOfBars
HOW IS HE ALREADY NOT ON THIS LIST? - venomouskillingmachine
Any rapper signed to g.o.o.d. music is almost always automatically trash. There are very few exceptions and he is not one. - DaWyteNight
Great rapper, lad to see him in the top 20 but he could be even higher since his album in 2018 was one of the best albums that year. Listen to Keep Going, Cloud 9, Go Up, La Familia and Slave to Pain if you don't believe me. - DaWyteNight
This guy can rap. 1 of the greatest of all time. Smoking Song and Oxycontin are 2 of the greatest rap songs of all time
The man is a beast
He is epic!
This guy could slice and dice kendrick lamar with just one bar
Better than kendrick lamar, jcole, logic, x, travis, denzel, chance, rocky, pusha, uzi, drake etc.
Better than kendrick lamar!
Locksmith is probably lyrically much better than everybody ahead of him with the exception of maybe Royce and Em.
Royce should be higher than Chance, Drake and Denzel Curry the overrated screamer
This guy can compete with em
This guy is dope and should definitely be top 5 - DaWyteNight
Why does he has his height in his rapping name?
Get him off the list - DaWyteNight
This guy is complete garbage
He doesn't always use autotune but when he does he is really good at it and makes the voice good to use in the songs. Butterfly Effect should be the best rap song of 2017.
Talented. Regardless of what people say he can actually rap he chooses to use autotune for atmosphere and it works
Joyner is top 10 at the least. Thanks to him I have hope for hip hop. He does it with lyrics no catchy hook and mumble rap needed. Go check his stuff out. Only 2 rappers that I think are better in the new school are Kendrick and Cole.
Joyner likes to destroy other rappers beats. His version of Gucci Gang and Bank Account. Hell, I thought his version of Bank Account was the real version for the longest time. He also tries to make songs and videos that are meaningful. The only one he missed the mark on was "I'm not Racist" I know he was trying to send a message, but it didn't stick. "I'm Sorry" and "Frozen" were really well done though. But try to tell me "Lucky You" isn't absolute fire.
Extremely versatile in both speed and lyrics although he is far too petty with his Logic beef (as much as I agree with him) Joyner is lowkey a legend and I find him much better than the older legends like Tupac and Biggie and even surpasses Eminem himself
Joyner is definitely part of the future of rap and hip hop his ability to produces music that is smart, conscious and relatable is some of his best qualities definitely not being represented well here with a mere 26th rank
Defiantly a Top 3 rapper of the new school. He is amazing at what he does.
Ha Gay! - BreakFastBeast2005
The art of bars
Check out "orange juice"
Good songs,Good lyrics,Good flow, Great overall rapper
Is this a joke? Who ever voted for this must get their ears checked. Since when is a rapper with ghostwriters the best?
What is she actually even good at? (besides stripping and giving Offset head)
Well whatever it is, it definitely isn't rapping. I'm also tired of seeing this chick pop up on mainstream songs, first Bruno Mars, now Maroon 5, what's next, Taylor Swift feat. Cardi B? Make it stop.
She's trash - DaWyteNight
2018 is her best year, she got her second number one (the first female rapper to have multiple #1's on Billboard) and all of her songs on 'Invasion of Provacy' charted on Billboard and she's the only artist of 2018 to have 3 songs with over 500,000 pure copies (I Like It, Finesse, Girls Like You) Finesse reached No. 3 on Billboard and Girls Like You reached No. 2 on Billboard and if it wasn't for Drake, she would have half of 2018 on Billboard
Although Nicki Minaj is the true queen of rap and the GOAT, there's no denying Cardi is the best rapper of 2018
Everyone has something bad to say about cardi b but she has a grammy, a husband and a beautiful daughter. Then, Nicki Minaj has nothing but a fake ass.
This is disrespectful to have him under these rappers like cardi and drake Phonte has lyrics which is something that most rappers today lack, No News Is Good News is still the best hip hop album so far this year. - DaWyteNight
Phonte should be higher than Drake the pop artist
SMH, the good rappers never get the attention they deserve.
So according to this list, Drake, XXXTentacion, Denzel Curry, Kendrick, Pusha T and Kanye are better than Phonte? Lol
2018 eminem is better than 2018 lil uzi? LOL
Yes, have you listened to Eminem's new album? Even in 20 years from Eminem will still be better than any kind of lil uzi. - DaWyteNight
He sucks and he whines on every track. - DaWyteNight
Uzi honestly one of the best rappers I've ever heard and definitely my favorite rappers of all time. His verses and hooks are insane, if you look at what he says is some really catchy and creative things no one has thought of. The producers he works with suit his style and the melonies are just so good.
Most influential rapper of this generation started soundcloud rap
It's funny how people think they listen to hip hop but don't listen to Bishop Nehru. - DaWyteNight
Bishop Nehru is another great lyrical rapper if you like Joey Bada$$ then you'll probably like Bishop Nehru. - ILikeSexyGirls
Nf should hands down be at the top. He's gotten so many people through rough times. His music is what keeps me and several other people going everyday. He is definitely one of the most under-rated rappers in the industry. He raps about real life and relateable situations. Every song he produces moves you. I never liked rap until I discovered him. He's got to be one of the greatest rappers out there. Real music till the day we die!
NF has lyrical talent, raps about real life, bars, and so many layers to his music. Why people don't like him or listen to him is a mystery.
I don't understand whats so special about nf. I'm not saying he sucks, but he doesn't have lyrical capability, he sacrificed them to tell stories. It's not a bad thing but he does this in every song I've heard him in. Plus, he comes off as some whiny christian version of eminem - HYBRID
He's one of the best out there. Underrated and should be much higher on this list, especially considering Perception was the #1 album when it was released last October.
He sucks and has ghostwriters. - DaWyteNight
When he's not switching back and fourth between supporting Trump he makes some of the worst music imaginable. He should retire. - ILikeSexyGirls
I would let kanye have my kids
Amazing and pusha should be way higher
Bro number 30 he is one of the all time greats
1 of da true greats
He is really good and his music is litt
Mr. Rogers has more street cred and Eazy called this guy out along with lipstick king Dre who signed another no talent Eminem, all beats just like his Chinese made crap headphones - Cush77
This guy doesn't even write his own lyrics and he hasn't released anything this year - DaWyteNight
He made a song this year?
Don't let his name fool you, he is actually really good - DaWyteNight
Man this dude goes so hard and should be top 10 - TheArtOfBars
One of the best rappers in the game today. This guy actually proves that you can be lyrical and still make music that sounds good, most of his recent songs are bangers that you can blast in your trunk and they are certainly better than anything from any mainstream rapper. - TheArtOfBars
Obviously this list is based on popularity and not talent, because there's no way Drake is better than Webby!
Greatest rapper alive
Better than Kendrick, Drake, X, Logic and Chance
In fact, he probably hasn't dropped anything for like 30 years or something
He's GOOD BUT HE HASNT DROPPED ANYTHING THIS YEAR - venomouskillingmachine
Sure, he's not that relevant or "cool" anymore but his music is just as good as it used to be and he's a great musician to listen to whether you want deep, meaningful lyrics or just an upbeat tune
Should be way higher! - Robchuzzz
TRASH - xomichelle
Absolute g.o.a.t. - ILikeSexyGirls
He should be at least in the top 10s. What is happened to you guys, vote for him
The best ever! Deserves a much higher place than this
Should be higher than XXXTentacion in my opinion.
This dude is washed up and a sell out.
He is awesome guy and makes movies and he ran out the nwa what was smart
I think he is the best out of all you fakes out there so boom
Don't tell me this loser still thinks he has a career
What is everybody raving about? This guy is terrible. Yall the type of people to call Ski Mask a good rapper but call Logic and Hopsin trash. - TheArtOfBars
Best flow of the new school no doubt. His songs are corny but that's what makes him special. I would hate for him to change his style but at the same time I think for his talent he deserves more recognition.
What is so great about this guy? - DaWyteNight
Lol this guy is garbage. - ILikeSexyGirls
If you can get owned by a garbage rapper like drake, you don't deserve to be rapping. Meek mill, more like weak mill I basically the yamcha of hip hop, he gets owned by everyone both have weak skills - HYBRID
Best motivational rapper oat
Just all around greatness
He knows how 2 make a hype
He is trash, why is he even on here - HYBRID
NBA youngboy is the best rapper of all time his music is lit I listen to it every day
When he goes into the booth he spits like a goblin I swear
NBA is a great rapper and one of my favorites his lyrics get stuck on my head as if he brainwashed me
Him? Na. I mean, did he even do anything at all this year? Plus, he is kind of corny and he isn't even lyrical and most of his songs suck. - DaWyteNight
Must be in 2018's top 5
This is not his position at all
come on this guy is a legendary rapper 29? That's ridiculous. He should be among the top 3 or 5 as d case may be
Love this guy, I’ve been listening to him for years now, he’s been with eveyone that you can think of, he should definitely be in top five or top three hands down no doubt. #blessings#onthecomeup legendary!
He is not even relevant in 2018 - DaWyteNight
Yes I love his song this is america
He is great and his lyrics make sense unlike most rappers (NBA, and others like him)
Its cool man
Another garbage rapper, joyner destroyed him in a bar on the litty freestyle - HYBRID
Trippie Redd inspired me to be who I am now and he's the best rapper that I ever heard of and I hope I meet him one day because if I do I'm going to tell him how big of a fan I was
Best rapper in my opinion of all time
Because his song are good
Lol this mediocre moronic mumbler is trash. - DaWyteNight
He's not even good for a mumble rapper - Genesyis
He sucks. - RiverVibeZ
Young Thug Should Be In The Top 5 Hands Down 🖐
Overhated - DaWyteNight
Better than Denzel Curry and Kendrick Lamar
How is he so low and Denzel Curry is in the top 10? Denzel Curry is trash compared to JID!
This list is so wrong, J.I.D. Proved he is a top 10 rapper skill wise but he still has room to improve so I would put him at about 20 rn
Edit: After listening to DiCaprio 2 he's actually not just okay, he's pretty damn good! - DaWyteNight
She's the Queen of rap. Literally nobody even comes close.
Queen of rap, nobody can take her place ever.
She sucks! - TheArtOfBars
The best I love the song "bang bang"
Great rappers should be in top 5
He is a good rapper
The best rapper out their, a real rapper
Shouldn't be on the list 2 words Binge EP. I rest my case, stupid people like to say that MGK trashed Em, but he didn't and his career is definitely going on a downward spiral since Em but out his diss track on MGK, which dissected his entire Rap Devil diss and destroyed it - germshep24
He is just too good the best white rapper alive
More than just fans, were family.
Mgk is a legend
If you don't listen to Kid Cudi, chances are your favourite artists were inspired by him
I think guys like Post, Juice Wrld, Travis, Uzi etc should be put in a different category than rap. - DaWyteNight
Post Malone is better than most rappers on this list. Just way to low. Underrated
Post Malone is the best singer rapper you will ever hear so if you wanna hate go hate some other trash person that you listen too.
This guy I absolute pop trash
Rap is about lyricism, storytelling, delivery, content and flow, and K-Rino has all of these. - DaWyteNight
The God of flow, lyrics, punchlines, and rap all together. Based on skill alone this guy is definitely one of the greatest of all time. The way he puts stories together is unlike anyone else. - ILikeSexyGirls
The art of bars. People who think lil gayne is good haven't heard K-Rino. - RnBLover
