The Contenders: Page 2

21 Kid Cudi Kid Cudi Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio.

Really a champion whose raps are easy to chill too, yet he also has deep songs. Some of everything but its all great. Disappointed to see him this low. He's definitely top 5 quality.

Kid Cudi is a beast. He might be new but his skills are way better than most of the rappers on the top ten. I think he is way better than fiddy. and chipmunk, who is that?

The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night, at at at night. On some real

Kid Cudi has some real chill songs

His songs messages are truely amazing

So underrated!

This dood got the message n the rhythm, for me he should be number 2 after slim

28 Childish Gambino Childish Gambino

Listen to Bonfire by this guy. I haven't heard any other songs with that much absolute savagery. Every line is badass as hell, and it's a great hype song. His other tracks are good too, good beats, good message. Deserves to be way higher up on this list.

This Guy is An up and coming rapper with a great flow and no cheesy lyrics his newest album because the internet is a classic

I'm dumbfounded as to how Ludacris is higher on the list than Gambino. Who has been voting for these people?

Why is he all the way down here... listen to his pound cake freestyle, his flow is always so on point
