Top Ten Rappers of the 21st Centuryyoz
The Top Ten
he's unstoppable once he puts his mind 2 it he says the most amazing things that sound crazy but it makes sence not 1 rapper would go head up with him with out getten there feelings hurt eminem will get on you about anything hair shoes anything
Eminem is the Best he always does what ever he can to stay on top Hes "" THE KING OF RAP "" not only the 21st century but forever
Hes the best rapper out there, has so many top songs its crazy,
his best song is either No love ft. lil wayne or when im gone!
check him out, the best there is by far!
I feel he's the best lyricist that has ever picked up a mic... He's the embodiment of intelligence... Pure artV 84 Comments
So good way better than lil Wayne. why do people like his music. He just raps about money and women. Plus his voice sucks. But Kendrick lamar is straight outta compton - LegitGames12
No words can describe
Kendrick is good but he's not the in the TOP 10. Think of Em, Jay Z, 50, Kanye, Dre, etc.
How is it not Lamar? Eminem can rap fast but he doesn't rap for the people. m.A.A.d city is for the people, so is Alright and i. How about this line:Brace yourself, I'll take you on a trip down memory lane
This is not a rap on how I'm slingin crack or move cocaine
This is cul-de-sac and plenty Cognac and major pain
Not the drill sergeant, but the stress that weighing on your brain
It was Me, O-Boog[? ], and Yaya[? ], YG Lucky ride down Rosecrans
It got ugly, waving your hand out the window. Check yo self
Uh, warriors and Conans. He is the best. Eminem "B**ch be humble sit down."
Kanye has such a special ability to create classically soulful--almost jazzy--songs on one album and then switch up to really synthesizing, futuristic tracks on another album. What makes Kanye such a great artist is his ability to bring every element of song and album into this beautiful harmony that makes you want to listen again and again. He's the one rapper whose songs are best listened to in order as an entire album, because it's the "big picture" of Kanye's work that truly tells a powerful story.
How is a person that HAS NOT ONE SINGLE classic album made it to the top ten? Hell even number one? How is a rapper like Eminem that basically has emotional problems and only raps about killing his mom and wife and killing others for no reason makes it to number one? This site is irrelevant. Kanye has made 3 classics and HAS MADE CLASSIC BEATS FOR OTHERS THAT HAS BEEN CLASSICS. Blueprint is thanks to him. Black Album, etc.

You're stupid. Eminem is the best rapper out there and every one knows it.
6 out of his 7 albums have won grammys.

JAY Z is literally a genius. He's been rocking the rap world ever since '96 with Reasonable Doubt, and hasn't really slowed down for the most part. He is the true king and has the best flow. Where Eminem may have the best lines, and Kanye may be the most "showy", JAY Z is a real master of ALL aspects of rap - lyrics, beats, marketing, and performance.
Jay 7 is th king of rap
He's really good with rhymes and can really put messages behind each rap. The best is Run This Town ft. Rihanna and Kanye West
This list is absolutely hilarious. The only person that is anywhere Jay as of the last 12 years is Nas and Eminem. No one else in the 21st Century compare. Jigga for number ONE!V 1 Comment
Greatest story teller I've ever heard. Always has a song for any mood or occasion. Outsold Kanye. Honestly, as one of his biggest fans, wished that he would be more mainstream. His low-key, original attitude to hip-hop, while held in high regard by many - including myself - is what places him beneath Kendrick Lamar in public opinion. Strong fan-base that he has built up with great music. Personally, I feel though Kendrick is slightly more talented as a raw rapper, Cole's ability to produce and tell stories, which I believe no one has matched - bar the legends e.g. Nas, Rakim - places him above Kendrick as a rap artist.
Uh, how is Cole only #6? #7 is the first guy to go platinum in 25 years? #7 is the guy who dropped his sophomore album the same day as one of the best rappers of the century, but still outsold Kanye by over 30,000 copies? One of the realest lyrical rappers in the game is only #7? This is why people say he's underrated. This guy is practically the physical manifestation of Tupac and Biggie's legacy. He belongs right up there with Eminem and Jay-Z and all them. He's a visionary.
Unbelievable lyrics. Cole spills his heart and soul out on each track, it's actually ridiculous. #6? More like #1. Listen to some of his less popular tracks like "Cole Summer" and then talk. He wipes Drake and Eminem off the list in any way possible. Best rapper of the 21st Century.
He is the guru...I dig his work!V 15 Comments
Drake is up and coming
Clever rapper one of my favorite rappers
His lyrics are to dope to not listen to, why is he even down here. If you heard Who Do You Love by YG and Drake, you might change your mind.
Way better than the othersV 16 Comments
50 should Be in The top 10 because he been running hip hop from 02-07 and has arguably 2 classic albums with one of them being the highest debut in hip hop. He also has sold like over 30 million records worldwide and has accoplished what jay and diddy have in a shorter period with less material and last but not least he has won almost every beef he has been in if 50 cent ain't a hip hop legend I don't know who is!
waidy from MIA!
50 cent is one of the best rappers of the 21st century because he's invented he've won every beef that he's been in. he said it himself, he "I want them to love me like they loved pac". 2pac was an instinct killer, and nobody has come closer to that than 50 cent!
50 made a huge impact on hip-hop. he destroyed more careers than any other rapper and made others succesful such as The Game. He maybe isn't the most talented rapper, but the most successful one. And theres a reason why he's so successful, its cuz he's really good.
No 50 cent should be like 30th. he mumbles in songs.V 5 Comments
Why is he even on the list he sucks.
Sad that people call him terrible despite not listening to a single one of his songs. The Lil' Wayne from 2008-2013 was actually an awesome rapper, with songs like No Love, 6 Foot 7 Foot and Mirror.
Lil Wayne sucks why is he on this list
People are so jealous than his skill is so far beyond any male rapper that they call him worst rapper of all time. Jay-Z is so overrated it depresses me. J. Cole & Kendrick Lamar are also overrated. Here's real list
4. Iggy Azalea
3. Cardi B
2. Lil Wayne
1. Nicki Minaj
I'm guessing he's only at 15 cause he's not done much in the last 13 years (other than produce)? If not this is ridiculous...
Dr. Dre helped Eminem get to where he is now and I'd dare say is probably the father of rap, making Eminem the son of rap cause without dre, we wouldn't have Eminem. Just my opinion on the way things worked out.
Dr. Dre is the father of rap. He got Eminem to where he is now and Eminem is the best rapper in the world. U have to listen to Mockingjay, When I'm Gone, Rap God, That's All She Wrote, and I Need A Doctor. Dre is the producer mostly, now.
His voice is really amazing and he is my favourite singer
Given this a rap list don't know why u guys saying his singing voice good
Great singer, beautiful voice, and cute, too
His voice is the best feature!V 5 Comments

Best rapper in the world.. Not only Linkin Park fans love him, but also all the people in the world.. He should be at least be in the top 5
Very underrated. Very smooth and rhythmic rapping. Very creative and unique unlike other rappers like 2pac, Dre, 50 cent, etc. Unlike everyone else, he's a rock rapper who surprisingly isn't black. Much different from everyone else on this list and should be even higher
Mike Shinoda is extremely underrated but his contribution to Linkin Park is invaluable, not to mention his sick 'Styles of Beyond' project; think 'Remember the Name'.
Not only of 21st century but he is one of the best rappers of all time. So he deserves to be in at least top five on this chart.
HIS ACCURACY, SPEED, VOICE, LYRICS,...
The fact that he isn't in the top 50 is sad. He is amazing and is a real dude
This dude is amazing... Talking about sense
Without a doubt one of if not the best lyricist in the 21st
He is an example of an awesome rapper
And unlike most rappers his lyrics actually makes sense.
A$AP IS BRINING HIP HOP BACK. VOTE UP EVERYONE HE'S THE MODERN 2PAC HE'S OLD SCHOOL BUT ALSO NEW SCHOOL.
His music is so easy to really jam too and his lyrics are impressive. Easily in my top 5
A$AP is modern hip hop, his last two albums are so good to jam to, easily my top 3.
Best everV 1 Comment
T.I. is the sexiest rapper alive and he keeps it real in all of his songs he is the best. I love all of his songs. but I don't think that kanye west is better then him they should have put him in 5 and T.I. in 3
Greatest in the game. Some rappers call him the "Jay-Z" of the south. That has lots of meaning. Rappers these days are trying to copy his swag and style but just can't because there is only one king and that's T.I.
HE REPPIN DA SOUTH STR88 UP and T.I DA SEXIEST HOTTEST RAPPER ALIVE G.H BABY...
I would say he is the best after Dr Dre. His is phenomenalV 10 Comments
I'm gonna protest lecrae should be in the top ten
Damn good rapper, shows a change in lifestyle while still keeping tradition in rap
Best Christian rapper ever

Well he is different and way more amazing.
Chip is killing the grime scene right nowV 1 Comment
Hopsin is amazing he should be higher in the list. If you listen to his songs and listen to his flow and lyrics you should be able to recognize his skill
Hopsin should definitely be higher in this list
Listen to "ill mind of hopsin 5 & 6". He is the realist rapper ever... But don't take my word for it listen to his music.
One of the most lyrical rappers out there with an awesome flow too.
Deserves to de higher on the list for sure
How come he even a rapper! He's crap and utter waste
How is he in this list? He's not even a rapper
Pitbull rules!... At least my 7 yo son thinks so
Pitbull haters should get their cranium checked
He makes some of the best,catchiest mainstream rap music
He deserves the top spot with Eminem
And this is coming from a guy who listen to hip hop legends like Tupac,Biggie and Bas
Please this is not his position
When it comes to distinctive rap style no one beats him
He should be of the best defining sounded rapper of this century
