The Top Ten Rappers Who Are Respected by MetalheadsThis is a list of rappers I've noticed who are respected by people whom love metal music. Make sure to check out these rappers. If you disagree with the list, be sure to make suggestions.
The Top Ten
I mean, he did a collab with Corey Taylor. Besides that, his songs normally tend to be rather aggressive and heavy, something which is mutual for a lot of Heavy Metal acts. - CrimsonShark
He had a collab with Serj Tanikian. Is that enough for you?
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.V 2 Comments
I also have a lot of respect for Tupac. He can rap in a way that is good - KingSlayer93316
I respect Tupac he was a badass rapper.
Haha that picture with Tupac and Kiss back in 1996 at The Grammy's...classic.
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
RATM is the best band ever - DarkBoi-X
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
No metalhead I know of respects Fred Durst... NOT A SINGLE ONE.
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!
Um... I'm sorry no metalhead "respects" this rapper that I know of.
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.
I definitely have respect for Biggie Smalls. Great rapper - KingSlayer93316
This one, seems genuinely plausible.
Marilyn manson and eminem are dope
Probably because of the fact he doesn't use the word N word every ten seconds.
He has real rap talent, so... - Ananya
I’m a metalhead, and I have a lot of respect for Eminem. He can actually rap, and doesn’t say the N word every 5 seconds. And his songs actually have a meaning - KingSlayer93316
Ironic since he's hated by a lot of hip hop fans but loved by some music fans. He's very polarising. - VaultDude101
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.
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.
Don't know who this guy is, but he definitely doesn't look like a rapper. - MetalFoREVer1228
Metalheads do not respect whiny emo poser metal bands like Falling in Reverse.
Ronnie is actually the vocalist of Falling in Reverse. This needs to be removed
Who Can Stop Us Now? - Marvel_1WilliamV 2 Comments
I think that Dr. Dre's pretty cool.
Should be number one
They have a distinct sound that some would say sounds like rock and metal.
They’re experimental hip hop, not rap. But, I think they’re ok - KingSlayer93316
Atilla is crap and so is this jackass worst death core in the world
Fronz is amazing, Attila rules and I just love his music. The profanity may be disturbing, buy I love the music anyway.
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.
Favourite rapper - DarkBoi-X
To Pimp A Butterfly was practically flawless. - Caleb9000
He's more reggae-sounding than rap, but he is metal also. Skindred rules. - NuMetalManiak
Why isn't he in the list? Benji is amazing.
Definitely a metal vibe, one of them used to be part of a punk band.
They're at the top but followed by people like Pouya, Ghostemane, Unaverage Gang, Zillakami and more great rappers.
No Metalhead I know of "respects" him.
Not really a metalhead but I like $uicideBoy$ a lot.But they're more for emos than metalheads but I'm not emo at all. - DarkBoi-XV 1 Comment
Watch an interview of him on YouTube talking about his musical preferences. Heavy Metal is his first answer.
He's a pretty big black metal fan and that shines through his music. But he's into metal and rock overall too considering he has sampled bands like Pantera, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, and Linkin Park.
He is a rapper but a metalhead too. - DarkBoi-X
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
His violent tone is amazing. Good for heavy music fans
Nope. I hate him - KingSlayer93316
Most metalheads that I know of despise Lil Wayne...
He's pretty badass in my book.
He’s AWESOME! - awesomedp900
This guy is awesome!
No. He created Despicacito (or however you spell it) - KingSlayer93316
Slipknot and avenged sevenfold look and music
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.
This here is as false as it gets. I've never met a metalhead who respects him, I'd rather say the opposite even if he was inspired by some rock and metal bands he still was a woman abuser and a hardcore homophobe, and in my opinion his music is trash. - PerArnt27
He's has been inspired by metal and rock bands like Papa roach and Nirvana. Even he have song like "King", "Revenge" and more.
These guys are awesome, that hace lyrics that has a perfect aesthetic to death metal m/
