Worst Music Artists of 2018

Most of these artists aren't even worthy of being famous and just suck all together.

The Top Ten

1 6IX9INE 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper.

His flow is so bad that you can't rap along to it because you're used to flowing like you're listening to a good song. - hiphopgod

Why do people think Justin Bieber is the worst music artist when you have psychos like this man running around? - CloudInvasion

He is my least favourite musician of 2018. He is a creep.. - Swampert02

His face is so bad it became cringeworthy. Now I thought Lil pump has better attire. (I am not judging by looks but basic requirements are still there.)
And "I fking tryway" What kind of lyrics is that... - MChkflaguard_Yt

I don't know where to start, and I don't even want to start. - CloudInvasion

First I've heard the name, but seems, and looks off putting based on reception/appearance. - htoutlaws2012

Can't tell the difference between any of them, which is what makes all of them so awful.

He is amazing. His repetitive rap lines and catchy lyrics are simply legendary. (I'm being sarcastic here)

Gucci Gang is just a stereotypical rap song, where the phrase gucci gang is repeated over and over again. I haven't listened to any of his other songs, but they're probably trash as well. - allamassal

Lil Pump? Na...more like Lil Punk. - DaWyteNight

Lil Pump: an edgy highschool rapper that wants to impress the other kids and little hypebeasts that he's got the kicks, the car, the bitches, the money, and all the other generic things through stupid pointless mumble-rap. Originality... - shiftaltkey

When someone asks me about stealing credit, this is an example I give them. - CloudInvasion

Still don't know what he does, more than shouting in middle of songs

Me and Dj Khaled "we the best" at everything

Dj Khaled. All he does is produce some beats and be an annoying pathetic hypebeast. - shiftaltkey

5 Cardi B Cardi B

Overrated and annoying, and she has the voice of a female version of Squidward. She looks like an orange gothic stop sign in the above image lol. Oh well she isn't the absolute worst but still she is a bit annoying.

Apart from being a trash rapper, she has no personality and doesn't stand out at all. Nicki Minaj might be annoying and trash too, but the one thing you could never say is that Nicki didn't have her own style or personality. - DaWyteNight

The worst mainstream rapper since Nicki Minaj. I've heard 5 songs featuring her, and her part is garbage on all of those songs. - allamassal

The only thing more annoying than her "rapping" is her talking normally. Have you heard her voice? - Uner1996

Which gang is he from? - MChkflaguard_Yt

Her songs are so BAD. She can't rap or sing. Even autotune cannot fix her whiney, scratchy voice. I hate Jojo.

Who in God's name makes these lists; please stop.

I hate Jojo for her bad songs and cringey bows but I've never heard her rap and there's a reason.

Hate her!

Definition of 0 talent, extremely trashy, annoying robotic voice that sounds like every other "TRASH" mumble rapper on the radio. How did he get a record deal? He has 0 flow too. He is probably the lousiest rapper I've ever heard! - TuneGod92

HE MAKES BANGER BEATS! And this is coming from a metal head

He didn't make a single song this year. Still don't like him or his music. - shiftaltkey

I know he can be overvoted, but honestly, he's not bad. He deserves his praise and putting him on a "Worst" list doesn't"t make sense, considering I don't see plans of a new album, single or EP being announced by Dimash at this point. - CrimsonShark

This shows how flawed this site is. You have to vote for something just to tell something DOESN'T belong there.

I vote him cause is one of the most overrated thing in the world right now and its annoying to hear his soundtrack, I would not dare call that song - wavedimp089

He was so annoying this year

His 2018 hits are the most overrated songs of the year. None of them deserved #1 on the Hot 100, but ALL of them hit #1 and stayed there for WEEKS. - allamassal

Oh come on! He got much better this year with good comebacks. He was worse last year (and the year before). - shiftaltkey

She came out of nowhere and was a hit all over the radio. Iggy looks like she tries to be the "White" Nicki Minaj and tries way too hard to be sexy! Like please stop! - TuneGod92

Yeah, she's horrible.

She thinks she's so edgy and funny with her stupid references to sex but it ends up just being a processed headache and migraine of artificial crap to listen to. - shiftaltkey

Even though she is widely respected as a rapper, her music is garbage and her voice is so irritating. She probably has one of the most irritating voices I've ever heard. She may be a good rapper, but that is it! Her image is a joke. - TuneGod92

Why is she still in the music industry? Overpaid and oversold. I cannot listen to Nicki often. At least she's better than Azalea Banks or whatever. - shiftaltkey

She sucks, but at least she has style and personality (unlike cardi b) - DaWyteNight

He has a really annoying voice and can’t sing without auto tune, just another talentless member of 1D

Pretty sure someone just thought "Oh hey, let's put one direction! My list will definitely be liked"

He's better than a lot of singers out there (Where's Jacob Sartorius? ) - ObscuredBeauty

Where do I start? Well for starters, she isn't a very good singer at all and if it wasn't for her very unique tone, she wouldn't even have a place at all in the industry. Most of her music is very generic and is the type that would only appeal to 10 year olds, I mean just listen to the second half of Prism. She truly isn't even that much of an Artist anyway. She is more of a pop star even though she doesn't even have stage presence. Her main appeal is the "sex symbol" image she obtained during the Teenage Dream Era. The only thing that really stands out about her besides her unique voice is how great her visuals are at her concerts. - TuneGod92

31 Lil Poopy
32 Kesha Kesha Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

Aside from her party hits that make you wanna get up and dance, she really doesn't have much about her that truly stands out. Her heavily autotuned voice is so annoying. Her music is trash! I don't even know how she got a record deal. She has very little talent, 0 star power or level of iconic ness, has no stage presence, and her music sounds like a knockoff of Lady Gaga and Britney Spears singles! Go away Kesha! - TuneGod92

Kesha is garbage. I bet Woman was created in 6 milliseconds, and Praying is horrible and overrated.

She's improving, but still not great. There's a lot of potential here, but not quite the execution. - Sop

Shouldn't be on the list, ding dongs - 445956

Counts in some way. The worst thing about Taylor Swift is that she is a really good musician who is wasting her talent on mediocrity, as in the case of Reputation. I know she is capable of much more and I know she has a caring personality. She honestly needs to focus on more human matters and not what the media wants you to depict her. - CrimsonShark

Since Delicate, she said she is free. I'm not sure though.. We should wait for the next album and see if her lyrics are more creative. - MissRWBY202
