Worst Lyrics of the 21st Century

Title says it all; The worst song and rap lyrics of the 21st century. In no particular order at first, but your vote and contributions can change that.

The Top Ten

1 "Beat that ***** up like Emmett Till" - Lil Wayne, Karate Chop

Emmett Till was a young black boy in the times of slavery who was brutally beaten to death (eye missing, face unrecognizable, cotton gin tied around his body) just becahse he whistled at a white woman. It was a very famous court case.

This was dangerously close to the worst song I've ever heard. Also, in my opinion this is Lil Wayne's and Future's worst song. - AlphaQ

Who is Emmett Till? - Catacorn

A black guy who flirted with a white woman and got beat up to death for it. - ProPanda

Oh this is just sickening just so sickening

2 "She gotta big booty, so I called her "Big Booty"" - 2 Chainz, Birthday Song

He's got some bad lyrics so I'll call him "Bad Lyrics" - Martinglez

Forget the 21st century - this is one of the most mindless lyrics in the history of music. - Entranced98

Honestly, I laughed. Even though this lyric is awful. - Catacorn

I drank some bleach so now they call me bleach drinker

3 "Put molly all in her champagne, she didn't even know it" - Rick Ross, U.O.E.N.O.

That's ' disrespectful!

RAPE! - MKBeast

Hey! How rude!

4 "Getting our nails did all Japanese-y" - Katy Perry, This is How We Do

Very terrible-y

Oh wow, that’s not a very good descriptive word. I feel like you may need to go back to third grade and learn about descriptions.

5 "Yo, shoutout to all you kids buying bottle service with your rent money! Respect!" - Katy Perry, This Is How We Do

Yo, shoutout to all you chavs hiding from the debt collectors! Respect! - Entranced98

This is even worse than that "Japanese-y" lyric. - NiktheWiz

6 "Go shove a gerbil up your *** through a tube" - Eminem, FACK

Animal abuse. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I'd put every line from FACK in the Top 5. - AlphaQ

Best lyric by Eminem, it shows the true pain he had to live through. Fack is truly an inspirational song.

/s - Not_A_Weeaboo

Oh god NOO Poor gerbil 😭

7 "You make my pee-pee hard!" - Brokencyde, Sex Toys

Am I supposed to be laughing or cringing? This is the worst lyric. - Catacorn

If these lyrics aren't the worst lyrics out there than I don't know what is. This whole song is filled with garbage.

This is Brokencyde. What else do you expect from these kids. - MKBeast

That's disgusting!

8 "I ain't got no type, bad bitches is the only thing that I like" Rae Sremmurd, No Type

Nice way to contradict yourself, Sremmurd. - SwagFlicks

I ain't got no talent... I can juggle, I can cartwheel, and hit meatheads with a mallet!

And by meatheads, I mean you Swae Lee. - WonkeyDude98

Even as the best song of the album, this is still low in quality. This sounds like 10 year old Tygas but better of course cause everyone is better than Tuga. - AlphaQ

That is a “type” though...

9 "If the light is off, then it isn't on." Hilary Duff - So Yesterday

The worst one I've probably ever heard next to 2 Chainz

You want to see my pet bird? Okay!

12 "Don't get suicidal like ya friend, here's a casket, STEEZ burning in Hell, my burner's in my belt, I'm really killing s**t, you ni**as killing yourself" - Troy Ave, Badass

I know that people like talking about the Emmett Till and the Big Booty line, but in this diss track against Joey Bada$$, Troy Ave makes light of the suicide of his friend, Captain Steez. I'll let that speak for itself. - djpenquin999

Too far kid. - CloudInvasion

Uh I'm scared

That’s an offensive lyric.

What even is this...?

Stick it on metal dumbass!

20 "It's wrong, wrong like Gaga's got a ding-dong" - Blood on the Dance Floor, It's On Like Donkey Kong

He IS invisible.

And you aren’t. So you aren’t the smartest man.

I like it though. The Biggie and Nirvana thing is a reference to how Halsey is biracial, not just randomly saying singer names.

As the visitor said, let the lyric speak for itself. It's on a level so bad it's good. - Swellow

Inappropriate! - DynastiNoble

50 "She says, 'Boys like a little more booty to hold at night'" - Meghan Trainor, All About That Bass
