Additionally, his identity as a Christian rapper adds a unique aspect to his music.

4 Johnny 3 Tears

How is Mike Shinoda better than him? The only reason Mike is so popular is because he got Chester to back him up. J3T is the real deal.

Should be number one. No one can compare to him. He's by far the best. Just listen to songs like Young, S.C.A.V.A., Paradise Lost, and Lion.
