The Top Ten
Tech should be number one, he is obviously the dopest rapper in the game right now. Glad he's included in the list too.
I honestly love his backmasking on his songs. He's one of those music artists whose really good at doing it.
He's my favorite rapper of all time and I'm glad he's on this list m/
After mistakenly being confused as a rock band, dubstep producer or whatever, Tech N9ne definitely is respected in the metal realm. After collaborating with Five Finger Death Punch, and making a cover of LL Cool J's song Mama Said Knock You Out, people really got in to Tech. He has his own record label Strange Music. He has also collaborated with System of a Down's lead vocalist Serj Tankian. Not to mention his upcoming rap rock band K.A.B.O.S.H. he most definitely will be considered a legend, in the Rap Rock music genre.
Being the rap vocals of Linkin Park, there is absolutely no doubt that he is respected by people who listen to metal. He, himself is an amazing rapper and has made a huge amount of hits with Linkin Park.
Being the rapper of Linkin Park, he gets a lot of respect. However, I don't think he is that talented. - IronSabbathPriest
I mean, he's the rapper of a nu metal band, obv. - ProPanda
Once a part of rapcore band Hollywood Undead, Deuce has really made a scene in being one of the most respected rappers, from people who enjoy metal. He once sung the hooks in Hollywood Undead and was later replaced by Danny. I personally think Danny is better off with Hollywood Undead, but I also wish Deuce was never kicked out.
He has real rap talent, so... - Ananya
Yes, the Eminem inspired underground rapper Hopsin is respected by many people who love different type of music genres. Hopsin is definitely one of the best rappers to ever do it, and is definitely one of my favorite rappers as well. Having a successful record label Funk Volume, he has managed to make a lot of anthems, for metalheads to enjoy. He has also signed rappers such as Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton and has also made them reach XXL.
Haha that picture with Tupac and Kiss back in 1996 at The Grammy's...classic.
Ronnie is actually the vocalist of Falling in Reverse. This needs to be removed
Who Can Stop Us Now? - Marvel_1William
Being the lead vocalist of Falling in Reverse, Ronnie Radke definitely has a lot of respect, from people who enjoy metal music. He also has an independent rap career and a mixtape out, called Watch Me.
I am genuinely surprised he ranked so low, considering how he is a frontman of a really good crossover thrash band. Moreover, I know that there's barely anyone in my metal community who likes Nu Metal, but do know and listen to Body Count...
Never knew much about him until I discover one of the best bands I've ever heard, BODY COUNT. He actually was partially inspiration to look into hp hop and rap a bit too.
Fred Durst is hands down one of the best to have ever made it possible. Being the lead vocalist of Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit, whom is now signed to Cash Money records. Fred Durst has definitely made history and has definitely made a handful of anthems for all you metalheads to enjoy. His lyrics are powerful, yet aggressive, he really knows how to pump you up and make you want to punch someone in the face. Limp Bizkit is amazing!
Fronz is amazing, Attila rules and I just love his music. The profanity may be disturbing, buy I love the music anyway.
Atilla is crap and so is this jackass worst death core in the world
Being the lead singer of Rapcore band Attila, Fronz is definitely respected by people who listen to metal music. Attila is amazing. Fronz is love, Fronz is life.
Zachary de la Rocha is a legend, he is definitely one of the best to ever do it. Being the vocalist of Nu Metal band Rage Against the Machine, he has really managed to make one of the best rap rock songs I've ever witnessed. Zack should definitely bring back RATM, they really did inspire me as a child.
The best rapper in the rap metal genre he does a good job about tell massages in his songs
To Pimp A Butterfly was practically flawless. - Caleb9000
Song writer, author, producer and most definitely, an amazing Christian rapper. Toby has a Nu Metal sound in some of his songs and he is definitely an amazing artist. Many metalheads love him, and I wouldn't dare ask why.
Tobymac has collabed with Nu metal artist Trevor McNevan and also with Skillet's John Cooper - paasadani
He's more reggae-sounding than rap, but he is metal also. Skindred rules. - NuMetalManiakV 1 Comment
Watch an interview of him on YouTube talking about his musical preferences. Heavy Metal is his first answer.
The scene girls just love T. Mills. Yes, he may be handsome, and yes he may have released a successful independent rap album, and of course was signed to Columbia Records for being a great artist himself. I would consider T. Mills an amazing artist. He has many great anthems, for example The Boom, which indeed is amazing, and deserves to be in the Greatest Songs of All Time list.
Slipknot and avenged sevenfold look and music
They have a distinct sound that some would say sounds like rock and metal.
He's has been inspired by metal and rock bands like Papa roach and Nirvana. Even he have song like "King", "Revenge" and more.
