Best Rappers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

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

Tyga is a rapper but for me it is one that has no future in the rap game, he has a style all his own and he created a technique and a way no other rapper rapper has. Its small personal brand is its brief cry he introduced in his songs, it is a trademark that distinguishes even the rest of the rappers. young and talented, Tyga could become if he continues on this path, one of the greatest rappers of all time, if not the best.

He has really good hits, he tries hard, he works hard for what he does. He should be in the top ten. Even though he may steal songs he puts his own spin on it to make it better than the original.

TYGa has sex with goats. Ew. - AlphaQ

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 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 music

64 Ghostface Killah Ghostface Killah Dennis Coles, better known by his stage name Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

The most successful out of all the Wu Tang members, Ghostface spits fire. Throughout his whole career most of his albums have been given consistent praise amongst critics and listeners, despite his album Ghostdini bringing out a side of Ghostface in which his fans weren't expecting. However, besides this stumble Ghostface has given the world Supreme Clientele, Fishscale, More Fish, Apollo Kids and The Pretty Toney Album, plus his contributions to the greatest rap group ever, The Wu-Tang Clan (which is another completely different list). Ghostface Killah, has been in the rap game for a long time now, but shows no signs in slowing down, giving him a champion status in hip hop. - MickyG94

Man, how is this dude down at 81. He's top 20 AT LEAST... but I'd have a hard time leaving him out of top ten. - jimmyshoe85

A great artist that paint vivid pictures. You just have to understand the slang. That is what captivates you and you keep the record playing over and over until you get the slang. One of the most overlooked rapper of all time

should definitely be in the top 20, best member of the Wu-Tang Clan and that's saying something - robertoantonioortuso

A top 10 rapper of all time. - djdangerous

66 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

MGK'S JUST AWESOME DUDES.. HE'S JUST A blast.. You may listen samples like INVINCIBLE... Where that's an awesome rapper dudes.. Must be below 5.. He's just fanta fabulous

I honestly have no idea why he is nowhere on this list. Machine Gun Kelly is the best Artist in my mind. Lyrics are deep and meaningful. Besides Wild Boy, which is what most people only know him as. Listen to his other songs and you will see what I'm talking about. Amazing flow and very audible pronunciation. Very fan based and cares about his fans more than himself.

Great flow fast and a great style. Should hook up with dre and slim and he'll become one of the best. Invincible/Wild boy/Chip of the block/Breaking news and see my tears are great this guy should at least be in the top 20. Oh and he's way better than most of those guys.

THE BEST EVER. Should at least be in the top 10

69 Big Sean Big Sean Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, known professionally as Big Sean, is an American hip hop recording artist from Detroit, Michigan.

'Supa Dupa' has the best rhymes I've heard in a long time. Big Sean for the win!

He might be a new mc in the game but he speaks from his heart and in every song he makes you can feel the technical genius that he uses to rap his feeling into a rap in other words a California roll

I love big Sean and the fact that he isn't afraid or embarrassed to cry infront of his fans and friend and others makes him a real man. He always keeps his city and his family on his shoulders and he always mentions his mom and grandma and how much he loves them and his city, he's true and real and great person and he's an amazing rapper and I love him so much

I can't believe he's so low on almost all the lists...

70 Inspectah Deck Inspectah Deck Jason Hunter better known by his stage name Inspectah Deck, is an American rapper, producer, and member of the groups Wu-Tang Clan and Czarface.

Inspectah deck is definitely the number one, HANDS DOWN! He is like a rapper for college professors. I don't even care that none of you like him, because you wouldn't understand what he says anyways. So basically I'm saying his rap skill is off the charts not to mention his flow, which I don't think anybody could match. Number one. Listen to triumph by wu tang. Then you'll see. - originalmc

All of Wu tang definitely belongs above John Cena. - eatmaxeat

How is u-god ranked above deck? God is okay but deck is top 50 hands down - ChrisHenry

Triumph being my favorite track OF ALL TIME, there ain't no way deck should be this low on the list. Also what is lil Wayne doing so high up?

71 Yelawolf Yelawolf Michael Wayne Atha, better known as Yelawolf, is an American hip hop recording artist from Gadsden, Alabama.

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...

72 Chuck D Chuck D

I'm not voting for Chuck D because he is the best rapper ever, personally, I think Eminem is, but there is NO WAY Chuck D and LL Cool J should be this far down. Chuck D led Public Enemy. Hello? Fear of a Black Planet? One of the best Rap albums of all time. He deserves too be much higher on this list just for making "Fight the Power" -- that song has to be in every real rap fan's top 5 of all-time.

A rapper with a social conscience, one whose lyrics were actually intelligent

This is sad that Chuck D is this far down the list. I respect others opinions, so I can tolerate him not being number one, but no one can tell me he is not in the top ten of all time. My personal fave for one main reason. His approach to rapping makes me feel like I'm reading a book. He is a story teller and def the best storyteller of the rappers. Plus, most of the rappers above in this list would not exist in the form they do if it were not for Chuck D. My other favorites include Tupac, second closest thing to reading a book. For smooth and original I would choose Eminem. For rhyming ability and flow, And machine gun delivery, Kraysie Bone.

He was one of ice cubes biggest influences and it takes a nation of millions to hold us back is one the greatest rap albums

73 Jadakiss

Whoever made this list needs to be shot in the face. Jada Styles are top 5.

Top 5 easily. Think about "We are the streets. " Great flow, lyrics.

The most lyrical and the best to ride a beat

No foreign rapper from Turkey, Iran, Pakistan or any of those countries should be higher than kiss. This guy was very talented. Kiss the game goodbye...need I say more?

76 Mobb Deep Mobb Deep

Mobb deep has some of the realist lyrics, beats and flow out there,
Especially their older songs like Survival of the fittest and
Hell on earth. Putting mobb deep at 90 is like putting big
Or PAC last, how is Wayne at 2!?

90?! The two lyrical poets of queens bridge get NINETY?! And Wayne is third?! These dudes should be no lower than twenty, but ninety?!?! The best hip hop duo ever ( or possibly outkast) is ninety?! These dudes would top most of the people above them- make them SHOOK ONES!

MOBB DEEP! That's all I gotta say! Shok ones part two! Keeping it real NYC!

Yo all I have to say is they should at least be top 20

77 Mac Miller Mac Miller Malcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller, is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Why isn't he higher? Mac miller is my boy and with out a doubt better than 90 percent of these fools on here

Flat out best, he'll be on the top soon. He has his own type of style that kills the other rappers.

He's just fresh. No doubt bout it he can rap like a king and who cares if he white it matters about the music and his music is beast I have heard his music when he was barely starting and he was good and now look at him now he feels like he's on top of the world

Donald Trump is the best rap ever

78 Childish Gambino Childish Gambino

Way better than Lil Wayne or 50 Cent. Should be in top ten, he makes his own beats, lyrics are dope, AND he can sing.

Newer to the game but steps up and shows he can hang with the greatest.

Total bad ass= donald glover. Amazing punchlines and an incredible flow for such an up in coming artist

Why is he down here?
Like for real

He sucks cock - Rap_Boi

80 Tyler, The Creator Tyler, The Creator

His raps and freestyles are amazing. But he is so against the system he doesn't fit the pretense for a rapper, listening to classical jazz for inspiration for his songs about the odd (Stalking, murder and necrophilia to name a few), this man sees the world through different eyes. His rise to fame only documents that he evokes an unspoken part of us, a visionary to the dark and untouched part of our souls.

Tyler has some of the most original and creative ideas out there, not only the hip-hop scene but in all of music in general. I mean how many artists have full albums with underlying story lines, and not only that; have story lines that cross into other albums that make trilogies (perhaps, the story line theory is a bit of an argument in itself, but nonetheless definitely exists to some degree)? Lets also not forget what makes a good rapper; a rapper that can break the color barrier and start a cult following with a young fan base with no particular aimed demographic. His music is great too, lets not forget Tyler, like other OF members, is behind all the mixing and producing in all of his albums, which shows he's a talented musician talented on and off the mic. Definitely a well rounded artist, he's even evolving as an artist as we can see in his album 'Cherry Bomb', with his more alternative to hip-hop influences such as jazz coming through. No matter how much I say about Tyler, the ...more - Graham

Tyler's lyrics and flow are strange and different than every other rapper out there, but it seems to work for him. He is not afraid to push boundaries or speak his mind which is what makes him so cool and interesting. He deserves to be much farther up on the list.

He made his style popular and started a rap group from nothing
