Best Rappers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
I'm not saying he's the best but should be in the top 10-15. He has such a great flow and lyrically is better than most on this list. Don't believe me? Who that-j cole looking it up
J. Cole the delivery and flow of nas, and a young slim shady equipped with a heart touching subject matter reminiscent of the great 2pac shakur. #208 is a pure insult. More like #3
Cole is the best in the game right and John Cena is higher then him on this list are you joking and Wayne in the top 3 Cole should be in the top 3 and Eminem isn't the best. Cole kills every track and makes the best stories in the game right now man this list is stupid.

Macklemore is more then a rapper, he is a storyteller. Each one of his songs paints a vivid picture of what he's describing, and Ryan Lewis has just as much of an influence with his incredibly produced beats. This brand new song, a leak off their upcoming album, is a perfect example. Great rapping from Macklemore and an amazing beat from Ryan, I'm definitely looking forward to what they have coming. Their V.S. eP was great, and their latest single/video My Oh My shows where they are going. This duo is only starting to get exposed to the audience that they deserve, and I couldn't be more excited.
Will be the new Eminem
Macklemore is great but I think Eminem has better flow, beat and can freestyle better than almost anybody. Eminem's songs are all about his troubles from the past and trying to fix them. If you don't believe me, watch the Stan music video then listen to Bad Guy which is a sequel to Stan and is deeper than anything Macklemore has ever said.
Macklemore tells beautiful stories and is not the kind of rapper that talks about drugs and girls. He writes songs about life today and having fun. I saw him in concert at Yale University where I live at something called "Spring Fling" and he was one of the performers besides Best Coast and Group Love and R.L. grime. The best was Macklemore because he was the best and amazing. My favorite song by him is a song called 10,000 hours because it's story that's. He is my favorite rapper and the best one of all time! Best part is he cares about civil rights and changes that are coming today. Hissong can't hold us featuring Ray Dalton Is my ringtone on my phone. I know what your thinking It's should have been 10,000 hours but I tried to do that but apple didn't let me so I had to do can't hold us. I would love to meet Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, if I do it will be a dream come true.
Macklemore is sick and has the best lyrics. His songs are all real and not about drugs and guns. Listen to otherside it will blow you away!
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis need to be much higher on this list. Of course I can't argue with Eminem being first but Macklemore, in my opinion at very least, deserves to be in the top ten absolutely. Listen to some of his lyrics. I mean that stuff is real. And I like how not all of his songs are deep - he knows how to have fun and lets the listener have fun too yet he is still a very self aware rapper who tells a story in each of his songs. I really love one of his newer releases at the moment - Drug Dealer.V 166 Comments
Should be way higher up the list! Amazing rapper with a conscience and a great style.
BlackStar is legendary.
His music got me thur many stressful days! Kept me going when I lacked support!
Much better than most of the guys on here, his intelligent lyrics and old school style should put him in the top 15 at least. He rapped about social issues and did it in a way not many others can or have. Honestly, 56 is a disgrace for this brilliant lyricist and artist.
WOW...55? Just listen to mathematics and close edge and tell me this spot suits him, I dare you. - AiJV 33 Comments
The Best Group Iranian Hip Hop Pioneers ZedBazi
Zedbazi is the best
Zed bazi is the best persian rap group that known by their special style and lyrics, the member of this group are:

He is my love in rapV 1065 Comments
Doc is the bomb, 146 what the heck man, best rapper of all time, he needs a lot more props then he is getting guys, vote up!
Redman's Blackout and Blackout 2 with Method Man... Straight up dope party albums.
There isn't competition with Funk Doctor, put it down!
How is Redman number 60? His lyrics are dope. I don't see how tyga is ahead of him.V 18 Comments
This low on the list? He should be number 1. Who has such a smooth flow; whether it be fast or slow? The way his words fit with his flow works in such a cohesive manner and they fit so well, no one can touch that. His internal rhymes are crazy. Rhyme after rhyme in one line. A rapper has to work twice as hard when using internal rhymes within lines because their rhymes are used that much quicker, which in turn means they work with less rhymes to spare for the next bar. Dude brought a smooth, fly, ladies man type of demeanor to rap along with a few other rappers, something that had never been heard of at the time. One of the kings in the golden age of rap. To me, he is the best rapper of all time. Put him against any rapper and he'll wipe the floor with them in a battle. Only a few would give him a run for his money. Y'all need to do your history and see what's really good.
Wow 119? This brother should be number 1 and if not number 1, at least top 5. He may not have had as much subject matter as his friendly competitor, Rakim, but he could beat Rakim in a battle. Can't believe people have John Cena on this list. BDK is too dope.
Wow Just Wow, PPl Stop Listening To That Crap Mainstream S... And Turn Up Real Hip Hop - copkiller
Big Daddy Kane can rap circles around cats.
If I gotta explain, it says a lot about you. The underground's rapper's favorite. Most of the guys in this list fell off, succes killed their style, even mobb deep. MF DOOM makes the art an art again, original, with rhymes that keep you puzzled. No, I'm not gonna put up some lame quote, go and listen! Then spend the rest of your life ashamed for this list and its contents.
I want to cry when I see this legend placed under so many trash rappers (Nicki Minaj). This guy literally has an unbelievable amount of talent, I guarantee you will never find a better lyricist. I still remember the first time I listened to "Hoe Cakes" and I've loved him ever since. DOOM comes up with such innovative raps and never disappoints. His unique style, voice, and lyrics are near impossible to replicate as he influenced those like Earl Sweatshirt and Joey Badass. MF DOOM considers himself to be a villain, but he's a hero to the rap game. - gemon529
My favorite lyricist, great voice, lots of back to back rhymes. Dude is talented
47? He is amazing. This list is broken it has the most overrated in the top and the better ones at the bottom. Like Mos Def. He is too low. Kendrick Lamar deserved being up there though.V 49 Comments
An Iranian rapper who loves peace and happiness
He is Credit of Persian Rap, like a Prophet
Bahram is the best
He is the father of Persian Rap and his the most spiritual rapper

His lyrics are amazing, and he was voted 10 in the top ten mc list on MTV
J SHOULD definitely BE IN TOP 5! He's CLASSIC MAKES ALL SORT OF RAP AND IS LEGENDARY IN RAP AND WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED IN YEARS TO COME!
I can't believe he isn't in the top 10 he was the one who got me even in rap today. This is a top rapper.
You kids just don't know... LL Cool J the baddest aroundV 52 Comments

One of the best rappers from New York and Wu Tang Clan much RESPECT
Method Man is the real definition of a dope rapper! The New York version of Ice Cube!
Method man is truly one of the best... But below john cena?
Any member of Wu-Tang (the greatest music group ever) should not be at 53. I mean, How High should automatically make him higher on the list (no pun intended). Blackout albums with Red are amazing. - AiJV 51 Comments
Just terrible that he is this low damn. How in the hell is John Cena ahead of him?
Absolute disgrace that Guru is so low in the rankings... Just shows what has happened to this shallow generation that only cares about cars, money and girls in the likes of every one at cash money etc. It is my hope that some people who still haven't discovered this genius come across him very soon. RIP Guru
Should be in the top 20 at the least. One of New York hip-hops legends. His mono-tone style and play on words and flow are undeniably great
Hard to earn is one of the greatest albums of all timeV 31 Comments
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!? LIL WAYNE?!? GZA is maybe not the most techinical rapper, but his lyrics are philosophic and deep (in a shaolin, oriental way), and still, he stays true to the streets. He's like a painter, using vocals as a brush. That's what you get when you misuse what I invent
Your empire falls and you lose every cent - killer!
GZA is the most intellectual member of the Wu Tang, and his album Liquid Swords got a lot of reception as the greatest solo project from a Wu-Tang member of all time!
Listen to the song "Labels"! This song went unanswered. He called out the whole industry and nobody dared to answer. No disrespect to B.I.G. Or Tupac, but "damn, I show livin large n***** how to flip a definitely jam! "
If people were smarter and understood his lyrics he would no doubt be way higher. - AiJV 31 Comments
99 that's so dumb he shoukd be in the top 30 just please listen to dream house
He's really good in almost every track he's in. He flows with the beat I mean he's dope
He Should be In top 20 at least how can Tyga be ahead of him. Are you fo'real. Meek Mill is better the allot of rappers. He's fantastic
Love his new album!V 46 Comments
Best Bone Thugz member, has the best flow, and fastest rapper. Definitely deserves top 10.
Has the best flows I've ever heard, one of the first fast rappers ever, can harmonize like no other, has a great singing voice and you can feel what he raps or sings. If nobody likes Krayzie Bone, or any of Bone for that matter, they don't like real music. Should at least be above Lil' Wayne. Eminem isn't on Krayzie's level either. Yes, Em has great lyrics and sings good, but Krayzie bone flows better and sings better and has a better singing voice.
With the ability to rap with a flow as good as anyone on this list, combined with a stunning singing voice as good as Nate Dogg. Krayzie Bone should rule this list. Easily as good, if not better, than Eminem
Krayzie Bone is the greatest rapper alive. Better than everyone in that generic top 5-10 they got on hereV 71 Comments
Here's a person saying he is not a rapper well I have to say that person has lost his mind because I will have to remind him what in the world he think smack that, blame it on me and hurt somebody are..? He is one of the best r&b singer still he is one of the BEST RAPPERS ALSO!
Akon is awesome he should be further up the list he has great songs and most everyone listens to him because he is the greatest he should definitively be moved way up the list
He his better than Wayne honestly
Akon should be easy top ten came out with the biggest tunes in history and is much better than all these fake rappers! 1! 1V 34 Comments
Sickest rapper out there and should be easily top 20 who is getting better, check out all his mixtapes because this kid is tight with lyrics that are not ordinary like all these singers who call themselves rappers
John Cena, Dj Khaled can't rap but are still higher than Logic search him on YouTube and
listen to him and you will be as shocked as I am because he is sick. He is so underrated, his rap is real rap that is dieting out.
What the hell is this. Why is Logic only at 133. He should be in the top 10 along with Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, J. Cole, and Tyler the Creator. This list is a disgrace to rap
Logic is an absolute monster lyrically, he knows how to destroy a beat while spreading the message of Peace, Love and Positivity. He deserves so much more than mainstream billboard rappers like drake and lil wayne. His flow is unbeatable and his skill for knowledge of the game combined makes him one of the greatest of all time. This dude really doesn't get the credit he deserves for the dedication and strength he puts in his music.V 95 Comments
He takes the worst traits from Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. The only difference is that he lacks Wayne's charisma, Drake's wit, and Nicki's personality. - WonkeyDude98
Rack City is one of the best rap songs EVER he should be in at least the top 20
I think he should be ranked higher than this he is better than drake kayne west and about 50 other rappers I think he should be ranked 15 at the least
Tyga is a very good rapper but when it comes to social life he is horrible he makes himself look stupid don't cross the line of social life to business life he is great thoughV 82 Comments
He's a fairly new genre of rap... He's energetic, bold, and isn't afraid to talk about what he feels and his life. He's recently been signed by shady records. I think Yela should definitely be on this list somewhere. He will own the game one day.
ı think he is good too. But He's new in media. I think he will be better soon. -I'm sorry about my English :(-
He is the Eminem Alabama. Should be in the top 50 now but he will get into the top 50 someday. Eminem said that when he retires from rapping, he will be helping Yelawolf with his carrer more. Best Alabama rapper there is and I live in the United Kingdom as well haha.
Young but still a beast. Deserves easily top 10, don't believe. Me? Listen to Hard feat eminem and wiz khalifa. Also listen to pop the trunk
Awesome...V 39 Comments
