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

Recently he's just getting better and better.

63 Falco
64 Hopsin Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California.

Hopsin is probably the realist there is, his music speaks to me in a way no other artists do. Tech N9ne and Eminem are close to 1st. Hopsin just isn't understood as well. His music, to most people, is too raw for them to handle. I feel he should at least be top 15-10 because he is the realist. I do believe he isn't the best rapper but his music has a special place in my heart. HOP for DAYS. Peace!

Deserves to be way higher than 37... the fact that pretty much all his career is self made plus the flow puts him in the top 10 for me. His lyrics are critical, and his rhymes are awesome.

65 Mann
66 Rhoadust
67 Mos Def Mos Def Yasiin Bey, best known by his stage name Mos Def, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor and activist from Brooklyn, New York City, New York.

Most underrated and least talked about rapper. Guys, just hear his songs... he definitely deserves to be at least in the top 15, and way above rappers like Wale, J. Cole and Macklemore. The entire essence of rap has changed today, ergo a change in taste for rappers, Mos definitely's Mathematics stands way above most of the songs of almost all rappers.
