Worst Rappers of 2018


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.

Oh my goodness do I HATE 6IX9INE. I literally want to smash my speakers when I hear such discriminative music, and that's saying something. I usually don't classify anyone's looks as ugly, but 6IX9INE is so horrifying that I can't say no when being asked "Do you like 6IX9INE? " All I can really say is "Bleh" because all that this pedophile does is make offensive crap without even trying to rap. And don't get me started on Fefe, which really sounds so disgusting and like if music is meant for criminals only. And what's worst is that he's being popular for his actions. I tried to request Bohemian Rhapsody to be played during lunch at my school in honor for the film and it's 43rd anniversary, where both times got rejected because the cafeteria supervisor wasn't there and this kid LITERALLY chose some trash slang for bullying over the most legendary song of all time. He has been a part of several sexual child acts, and gotten into a such disgraceful things, yet he is being preferred over ...more

Absolutely awful. His music is just straight up screaming the n-word and talking about shooting people. FEFE is the only thing he's put out that people actually know about where he isn't raping our ears. And that still sounds like pure garbage. He's also a child predator. His rainbow hair and teeth look terrible and the face tats aren't far ahead. He has one song I can actually stand called KEKE, but only because he had HUGE help from Fetty Wap and A Boogie, without them the song would be just as awful as all his other songs. Doesn't deserve money or fame, instead deserves to rot in a jail cell and think very hardly about his life choice before ever putting out another song.

I don't understand how this child predator has so many fans. - OnMyBlockFan

The only think worst than a rapist: an ear rapist. Unfortunately, he happens to be both of those, and worse, too. Why is his music still allowed to be streamed and listened to? It should be removed! #Don'tMuteRKellyButMuteThisGuyInstead

2 Cardi B Cardi B

We never should have allowed this to happen. And why we did is beyond me. Personally, her hit song of last year and Gucci gang are two of the most annoying songs ever made. It's official: hip hop is a joke.

She is so annoying. I'm waiting for her 15 minutes to finally run out. - OnMyBlockFan

She is retarded. We never should allowed this to happen and why we did is beyond me.

3 Lil Pump Lil Pump Gazzy Garcia (Known professionally as Lil Pump, born August 17th, 2000) is an American rapper, producer and songwriter. Gazzy began his career in 2016 with a collaboration freestyle with Smokepurpp, which was eventually posted in Soundcloud to popular success. He broke out to mainstream the following ...read more.

This guy is actually the worst. Why does anybody like him? No, no, more importantly, how did his "song" (I don't even want to call it a song because it's such a disgrace) get so damn popular? His single good song is a collaboration that he didn't write and was simply featured in. I also love how this guy considers himself to be a "proud SoundCloud rapper". YOU SHOULDN'T BE PROUD AT ALL. I think he deserves to be #1.

I can't believe kids at my school look up to him/

In defense of your boy Lilian Pumpernickel, he did create a new aesthetic, and satisfies the urge for something basic and dumb every once in a while. - ThatoneMetalhead

He is the best rapper EVER! And that is a FACT! - LilPumpTheGod

4 Bhad Bhabie Bhad Bhabie

Absolute trash. Anyone who listens to this music probably had a lobotomy.

Very whiny, mediocre beat, and terrible lyrics in every song. Absolute trash

Cursing too much for a 15 year old. She relies too much on autotune to save her terrible voice and it still doesn't work. Sounds like a whiny robot most of the time

God I hate this girl. She swears way too much, has an annoying catlike voice, and acts like a gangster. What an amazing person to look up to. - CharismaticKat

5 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".

His last three hits are the most overrated songs of 2018. God's Plan is another one of those songs that find this middle ground between boring and annoying, though Nice For What is okay but still didn't deserve #1 on the Hot 100. In My Feelings, though, is so bad that even "noise" isn't the best description, but rather, a racket will do. That song has been #1 on the Hot 100 for like 5 weeks! - allamassal

Wheelchair Jimmy go away - DaWyteNight

Honestly he this year he has been good - B0S5J4M3S

He’s decent at best

Kodak, with his irritant voice and bad notes he's one of the worst rappers of 2018 (his hair is ridiculous too)

He's a filthy thing we don't need. - AlphaQ

Good god, he sounds like a rat being stabbed. Tunnel Vision is one of the worst songs I ever heard and I hear he's a criminal too. - CharismaticKat

7 XXXTentacion XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (born January 23, 1998), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter.

The person who put him on this list don't have heart!
He was actually talented and kind hearted guy.
Okay he did bad things when he was younger but he changed himself and became a positive person. He was the nicest rapper ever.
And his songs were good.
I hate that I didn't know him before he died...
He just didn't deserve that...
Now I'm officially his fan! I can't believe he's gone...
Rest in peace young legend...

Okay, let's say RIP, but I can't say anything nice about him. He's just not a nice person. Yeah, I understand, he had personal issues and got in trouble, but I'm not gonna talk about that. He doesn't even rap. All he does is sing with a depressed vibe or yell in the mic. What kind of rapping is that? If he has problems it doesn't mean he has to make depressive or agressive songs. That's not a real rapper. He probably was shot due to the fact many people dislike him because of his terrible music and his agressive actions.

I agree with the person below me. I gotta admit, some of his songs weren't actual rap music, but still, he actually made some pretty good songs that I would qualify as rap music. And GIVE HIM RESPECT though, he JUST DIED!

He deserves to be number 1 for the worst. Lil pump is way better than this trash

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

Bruh rick ross makes bangers

What a SUCKER!

Sure his beats are nice, but he only raps about money, maybachs,date rape, food, guns he hasn't shot and drugs he hasn't sold.

Yeah, his production is usually pretty good, but the problem is that he isn't responsible for those beats. Yeah, I can admit he has a good ear for beats, but I can only imagine how a good rapper like Nas would sound on some of those beats that are going to waste. - DaWyteNight

14 Quavo Quavo

He's not that bad if he didn't have that much autotune. - AlphaQ

1. Remove his auto tune
Enjoy the show LOL

Quavo should be way lower on this list! Sure he uses way too much autotune but lets be real, every singer uses autotune nowadays. Plus he practically carries Migos. Offset is terrible and Takeoff is good but not very successful. I still love Migos though!

He doesn't know how to rap, sing or use auto-tune properly. T-Pain knows how to use it better and he even criticized him for it, which he deserved. He doesn't deserve any music awards and he doesn't deserve to be a rapper.

29 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.

31 YoungBoy Never Broke Again YoungBoy Never Broke Again

I have to admit, I kinda like this guy. He grew on me a lot, at first I labeled him as trash just because of the way he rap-sings and sounds like every other rapper today, but then I actually listened to his lyrics and realized that he's actually not that bad and he spits some real life stories. I can only listen to a few songs at a time because his singing becomes predictable after a while but he's one of the best for his kind of rap. - DaWyteNight

Eh, he's pretty mediocre. - AlphaQ

He's pretty good. - CharismaticKat

He sucks. Him and Cardi B are great for each other because they both suck at rapping. Takeoff is the only decent member of Migos. - DaWyteNight


He's the best out of the Migos. - AlphaQ

He’s getting faster in my opinion. He can spit bars. Quavo just has that same Triplett flow with autotune, and Takeoff…the same.

35 Denzel Curry Denzel Curry Denzel Rae Don Curry (born February 16, 1995) is an American rapper and songwriter from Carol City, Florida. He released his debut full-length album, titled Nostalgic 64 on September 3, 2013. His second full-length album, titled Imperial, was released on March 9, 2016.

I'm sorry but I just don't see what is so special about this guy. He literally just yells his head off on his tracks, and he isn't original and hejust steals Memphis from Memphis rappers like Lord Infamous and Skinny Pimp. Also none of his albums are more than a 5/10. This guy thinks he is the best rapper in the game, even better than Kendrick Lamar, he must've been dropped on his head a few too many times to think this.

This guy had the nerve to say that he is better than every other rapper in the game besides Kendrick, and then later he admitted that he thinks he's even better than Kendrick as well. Until this dude can put together a great album he better stop talking that mess.

I'll say he isn't a bad rapper, but he's nowhere near as good as people make him out to be. This guy actually has the potential to be great one day, but he has a long way to go.

This guy is great. - AlphaQ

I only read half of the first verse of MOSH PIT on Genius and am disgusted by the language this child uses. Kid just enterted his teen years and his lyrics make “I Wish I Could Fack every girl in the world” by Lil Wayne sound like a Christian Worship Hymn. Sorry for the bizarre comparison, but it’s literally that bad. Seriously, the kid needs to find Jesus, and stop singing about sodomy, oral, raping girls, and singing 21+ rated content in general. Some of his song titles are enough to make you puke.
