Top Ten Worst Modern Rappers

The filth of modern rap music... What happened to sending a message through meaningful and thought out rhymes... Once Eminem, Nas, Dr. Dre, and Jay Z die Hip Hop will be dead

The Top Ten

1 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop artist and is often referred to as one of the worst rappers of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, ...read more.

Worst piece of crap that I have ever had the misfortune of listening to. It is a shame that you don't need talent to be famous anymore.

His songs make no sense and are annoying and too much auto tune

Absolutely horrendous! Makes me want to rip off my own ears just so I don't have to listen.

Look, I try not to hate much, but I heard him once and then never listened to him again.

Why is he here. He is awesome!

3 Soulja Boy Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

Worst rapper alive. Terrible everything. Wack lyrics, wack flow, wack delivery, wack look.

I don't listen to him

His name is soulja boy, yet this is the exact same guy who disses the FBI!

Now watch me

4 Cher Lloyd Cher Lloyd Cher Lloyd is an English singer, songwriter, rapper, and model. She rose to fame in 2010 when she finished fourth in the seventh series of The X Factor.

Cher Lloyd does not rap.

5 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Horrible... She is the terrible version of a "barbie" mixed with a pile of crap then add in horrible rhyming and an annoying voice

Barbie sucks as well, but Nicki Minaj is the queen of rapping compared to Jared Milton (don't get me wrong, I still hate her no matter how much hate I will get for doing so). I am still waiting for Jacob Sartorius to be on the list.

Personally, I think she wastes the talent she has on most of her songs.

For those of you who've never heard of her... I envy you.

6 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.

He tries to be famous in a harsh way. Makes you think

What? How is he the worst?

Do I really have to say much about this guy?

Just because he's an asshole doesn't mean he makes bad music

7 2 Chainz 2 Chainz Tauheed Epps, known by his stage names 2 Chainz and formerly Tity Boi, is an American rapper from College Park, Georgia, and is often regarded as one of the most mediocre rappers of recent years. He started out in the southern rap duo Playaz Circle with fellow rapper Dolla Boy, before he would become ...read more.

His lyrics doesn't make any sense

Sad how this nonsense no-flow generic rapper replaced the good old music of 2008-10. And don't vote for Drake, he is at least better that 2 Chains. Weezy sucks but at least has funny metaphors

I find him hilarious

8 Rick Ross Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Can't rhyme at all and just mostly grunts

About as untalented as they come.

Saw that thing in a magazine that he was gay.

9 Cardi B Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and more.

She sounds like she's retarded all the time.

10 Travis Scott Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

Overrated trash. Enough said. - DaWyteNight

The Contenders

11 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Drake sucks, he is so boring and his songs are garbage and are useless.

He is the worst rapper ever.

Best dance moves NA.

12 Lil Uzi Vert Lil Uzi Vert Symere Woods, better known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American hip hop recording artist and songwriter.

Meaningless and repetitive lyrics, way better alternatives exist

13 Young Thug Young Thug Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single "Stoner." Notable Albums/Mixtapes: Barter 6, Slime Season, Slime Season 2, I'm Up, Slime Season 3
14 6IX9INE 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper.

He should be the very top of this list. He is awful in every single way. Every way. Appearance (this is something completely in his control), Lyrics, and most importantly, Crime. I hope he enjoys prison.

6IX9INE should pretty much stay #1 because my goodness, his level of trash is on a whole new level.

Rainbow-obsessed pedophile who relies on good producers to get hits. Also, there are 3 modern rap legends above this, how?

All his songs sound the same. Just yelling into the mic and no rhymes he just repeats the n-word

If this guy can "rap then I can.

He is really obnixious

Did everyone forget about this guy already? Don’t blame them, really...

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

He’s not that bad

His music is 'ass ass ass ass ass ass ass ass' - DaWyteNight

18 MattyB

This guy sucks - Genesyis

Acts like Shady but his "covers" are really just the beat with his own words. His own songs are much worse pretty much A kid acting like he's a pro but sounds like and acts like Justin Beiber

A.K. A MattyBraps, a kid who hasn't hit puberty yet, acting like he is the next Eminem and/or Bieber believe it or not, need I say more?

He thinks he can rap, well he should stop using auto tune. he is a Justin beiber wannabe, and Justin beiber is far worse.

His voice is horrible to listen to and his lyrics are redundant. He's arguably worse than Lil Wayne

Terrible

21 Young Dolph Young Dolph

His music is total garbage. What's even worse is that he's not signed to a major label, meaning he has full control over his music, and he chooses to make what everybody else in the mainstream does. Pete Rock was right to call him out for being trash, somebody needed to say it and I'm glad he did. The only song that Dolph really went hard on was "Paly Wit Yo B***h, but usually he sounds so lazy and as if he doesn't even care what he's rapping about. - DaWyteNight

22 Tyga Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

23 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Always brags in her songs.
At least Nicki Minaj made a few meaningful songs like Fly and Right Thru Me, but Iggy, noo. Have you heard fancy. It is almost like she ruined a good Drake song.

Honestly, I'd rather listen to her than wack ass Birdman, Post Malone, Soulja Boy.

24 Eminem Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri.

I know everyone will hate this but he fell off really hard after being featured in Come On Let Me Ride, the worst Skylar Grey song ever. I hope the old Eminem returns...

Well listen to Caterpillar, I think you will like it

I think he fell off even harder when he was featured in Roman's Revenge by Nicki Minaj.

Shiiit... why Eminem in this list? His best rapper of all time... don't say bull... his is best

31 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

He's not a rapper. Saying he is is disrespectful to pac and biggie

Dale. Mr. 305. Mr. Worldwide. That is all he says. I don't view him as a rapper

He is a rapper, stop saying he isn't. Anyone who thinks he isn't a rapper has obviously never heard any of his songs before he was mainstream. - DaWyteNight
