Best Rappers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

Come on at least in the top 10! I Love him!

62 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!

Should be wayyy higher on this list, top 20 at least.

Why come Twista belong to # 66, he supposed to be belong at least at Top 5.

68 that's sad... Should be top 10 for sure some of these rappers don't hold a candle next to twista - craig18s

64 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?

65 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.

覺 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

Best Rapper and singer I'v listened His BestFriend For Thousand Times

66 Chuck D Chuck D Carlton Douglas Ridenhour, known professionally as Chuck D, is an American rapper, author, and producer.

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.

good

67 Raekwon Raekwon Corey Quontrell Woods, better known by the stage name Raekwon, is an American rapper and a member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

I'm a big Wu Tang fan. If there was a way I could just put the name Wu Tang Clan on the list, I would, because they have all played a great role in hip hop. From Ol' Dirty Bastard's irreplaceable drunken type flow, Method Man's cool and collected wordplay, GZA's lyrical and storytelling ability, Ghostface's loud and proud presence on the mic, and of course my second favorite (Just by the smallest amount in front of Ol' dirty and GZA) the Chef. Raekwon's solo debut Only Built for Cuban Linx is known to all Wu tang fans as one of the clan's greatest solo efforts, with obvious perfected production the RZA. Cuban Linx, showcases the slang and dialogue from both Raekwon and his Wu tang pal Ghostface Killah. The sequel to Cuban Linx, is the other notably classic album by the Chef, teaming up with the rest of the clan, including RZA and Ghostface. - MickyG94

What the hell is Rae doing down here? All of the Wu needs to be up at the top of this damn list. Real ass rhymes, story telling' magician.

How are guys like Lil Wayne and wiz above this guy. People who vote for those rappers are retarted. Raekwon is the truth!

So you make one of raps greatest albums with only built 4 Cuban linx and that earns you 120? - AiJ

68 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 the best

I don't know what to say other than tyga is literally one of the worst rappers in the game. This whole list is a joke

What tyga should be in top 10

71 Black Thought Black Thought Tariq Luqmaan Trotter, better known as Black Thought, is an American artist who is the lead MC of the Philadelphia-based hip hop group The Roots, as well as an occasional actor.

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.

The real greatest of all time.

72 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

best

73 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

He literally licks monkey balsl for fun like I saw him opne time at the st louis zoo climbing into one of the cages with the monkeys and took offf their monkey pants and started to lick their monkey balls reall really hard and I kinda liked it at first but once he got all the way to torso I was like um man your going too far and so then haha yeah that's it

75 Tyler, The Creator Tyler, The Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director.

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's a creative person

76 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 truly believe that Big Sean should be in the top 10

77 Prodigy

Prodigy is in my top ten. He is a sick rapper. Have you heard his verses on The Shook Ones part 2, and Survival of the Fittest. Yet you've got people like Drake and Kendrick Lamar ahead of him, and he's all the way down at 539th

As Mobb Deep's lead-MC, P's knack for ear-grabbing lyrics earned him a rep as one of the most memorable MCs of the mid-90s. He may not be a great technical lyricist but his storytelling ability and he had the perfect voice for gangster rap.
Prodigy should be in the top 20.

Put him like 80 spots higher at least

Shook Ones Pt. 2 is the best rap song ever, hands down.

78 Lecrae Lecrae Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Yo.. All I can say is... That this rapper has guts. He might not be the best rapper... But he is the best Christian rapper ever. He was nominated for the Grammy Awards. In the future, he will be the best rapper of all time... Maybe better than Eminem.

One of the best because his music is directed at praising and making others aware of God, his Son Jesus and God's glory. Not only that, it's very good both melodically and lyrically.

best rapper beside eminem help me get him to #2 best part about it is he is a christian check out his best sons called God is enough and children of the light awesome rapper I am his biggest fan - isaac99

In my opinion...The best rapper I have ever listened to (And this is coming from a former Kanye West fan lol)

80 Montana of 300

Honestly extremely underrated, he does exactly what he raps about. He has done/seen it all. He should honestly be known, people who actually pay attention to other rappers and call Montana of 300 "trash". Should get beat up. Lol. Like, Montana of 300 has the most best lyrical skills ever and him and his group cypher member of FGE, are also lyrically talented. He's honestly the last drill rapper. He goes aggressive and shows you how a REAL rapper should be!

Best remix artist alive he's badass pull up on ya like a ice cream truck

I like the new song

Best rapper right now
