Best Rappers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
How is Royce not in the top 20's? Furthermore, how is it the he is the only Slaughterhouse member on this list?
This list is obviously a joke; just look at where Jada and Fab are. Here's a useful note: mainstream doesn't reflect lyrical skill.
Royce is a beast listen to his song writer's block. He could compete with Eminem
royce must be at least in top 20 because he has good flow. he is competing with eminem you know. He has nice lyrics and good flow.
He is too tall for be on this positionV 66 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!
Seriously Drake Lil Wayne, Mackelmore come on now. - djdangerousV 21 Comments
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
No one can rival his lyricism the only people even close are Aesop Rock and GZA. His rhyme schemes are better than anyone else to ever do it.V 53 Comments
A mc that still makes hip hop look good
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!
One of the top 10 rappers of all time "no doubt "
Flow is magic
Delivery is mind blowing!
I'm really shocked seeing him ranked that low!
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.
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
The best rapper in iran and asiaV 355 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

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
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! "
The GZA is the genius. Enough saidV 33 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
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 Persian rapper

Ho3in is one of the best rappers that you can never, ever seen, with the best flowz and amazing voice, I suggest you to hear on of his amazing song like: shabha, radde pa, tanhayi
God of hip hop
Is beastV 369 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
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
One of the best modern rappers in the game right now. He needs to get in the top 5. - UltimateCraigV 112 Comments
He is the one and only mutlitalented rapper ever...! He raps smartly his lyrics is awesome and apart from rapping he is Musician, singer-songwriter, lyricist, composer, vocalist, guitarist, pianist, producer, graphic designer, visual artist. He can play- guitar, keyboard, piano, samples, organ, percussion. That's truly awesome he is the perfect entertainment package.. In short he is "ONE MAN ARMY". /
Mike is so versatile! He has a very clear voice you get the lyrics on first listen itself. He does not rap about women money and parties. Writes meaningful lyrics. Mike and Linkin Park!
He is the best rapper ever. He should come at number 1. I am very disappointed he is in 11
He's the most awesome rapper. He can sing, play guitar, produce. He can do almost everything in musicV 522 Comments
Because his tone is unique
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
More of a rapper than Drake will ever be. - Forhad_765V 35 Comments
How is Wayne 3rd? That alone makes the list a joke, not counting 50 Cent. Otherwise, the list is pretty decent (not really). Vote for real hip hop.
The most keeping it realest rapper alive. But don't forget Mos definitely as well. But all the people here are voting for the commercial rappers instead of the rappers that are doing it not only for the paper!
Through talib's music I've found that there's ways to face life and that I do have a lot to look forward too in life as a father a man and how too enjoy good music
Blackstar is legendary...him and mos are such a great duo. Even on by himself, he can hold his own and is so lyrically talented. I can't believe he's at 68 - AiJV 18 Comments
The fact that Black Thought is this low on a top rappers list has got to be the most out of control logic I have ever been exposed to. Whoever made this list should go back to listening to Country music.
Plus, Eminem is a great rapper but he is not number 1.
this list is bullcrap how the hell is lil wayne in the top 10 and black thought of the roots isn't even on the damn list. Black Thought of The Roots is definitely one of the best of all time -
Black Thought is probably one of the most underrated rappers EVER. The album Illadelph Halflife is a masterpiece. In my opinion, Black Thought is better than Jay Z, Dr Dre, Eminem and Lil Wayne by FAR.
GOAT EASILY - yoshimon3V 14 Comments
The greatest battle rapper ever! At the very least is top 30. How many mcs can say they destroyed a legend in a battle
The Lyrical king, by far! Few other rappers got lyrics like this guy.
Has more content in one of his albums than most of these rappers, including eminem, in their career portfolio! check out the lyricism of the most quotable and bar monster rapper of all time! Before you start talking, check out albums C of tranquility, Rip the jacker, For whom the beat tolls...
Canibus best freestyler fast, educated and his fame was wiped out by a single rap battle when he broke his arm. Canibus is a legend better than Wayne and Manaj. I think 0.1% is a disgrace to voting for the best rappers. Canibus doesn't aim to say " I made it to the top 100 rappers" his goal is to be a competitive number 1 rapper.V 9 Comments
