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

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

I can’t belive she’s famous I don’t know the reason but I HATE strippers like Her card I used to be one

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

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

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

It’s literally a 16 year old snob whining about how she’s better than everybody

6 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.

Yeah just sone dump people trolling x is good - coryrevv

He cool kid with good song remove him now or get v bux stolen.

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

Boring as hell and is completely garbage. You must have an IQ of 0 to like this dudes music. I hate when good things happen to bad people.

Really good music don't lie

12 Quavo Quavo

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!

Worst member of Migos, he always auto-tunes everything. - DaWyteNight

Not THAT bad. - AlphaQ

13 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

Drake killed X! 111111111! - Not_A_Weeaboo

14 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.

He sounds just like drake but with a sore throat.

No he's not that bad. - AlphaQ

How is he bad? Listen to MIA Owl Pharaoh, That song didn't have auto tune, and the music had good rhythm. - SandwichSWAT

No way! Travis has arguably the best album of the year with Astroworld.

15 Lil Xan

Don't even have to say anything

Every song he has made is more repetitive that gucci gang

He is the cancer of rap

This dude is so overrated and he doesn't even try anymore. He used to be decent, but now people have made him so overrated where he doesn't even need to try anymore and his fans will eat it up. How did he go from To Pimp a Butterfly to "sit down, be humble. Sit down, be humble? "

Either way, I've never gotten much out of this guy that everybody else seems to. - DaWyteNight

Get him off the list. - Not_A_Weeaboo

What? Kendrick is the best rapper.Why is he higher than Lil Uzi Vert who sucks. - DarkBoi-X

Jesus what is this list, I mean I get why he's hated and all, even though some of these are good, what are kendrick and 21 savage on here, quavo isn't the best but he does not deserve to be in the top ten, and kodak (and I have an iq of uhhh 2million yep 2 million, I'm smarter than uh) doesn't deserve to be higher than nicki, at least he will occasionally write meaningful lyrics (occasionally)

Trash - DaWyteNight

He’s not trash

20 Future Future
21 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

He's the best


22 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.

He sounds like Decelerating Motorcycle. - SandwichSWAT

Sounds like a toddler

23 Lil Yachty Lil Yachty

Should be the #1 worst

He used to be a good one to laugh at, now he’s not funny anymore and just sings about nutting on people’s faces.

24 Pusha T Pusha T
25 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.

26 Offset


27 Rich the Kid Rich the Kid

Rich the kid ruins every good song with his feature. Plug Walk was trash, his album was the worst ever, he is straight up trash

Just like Eminem, lil Uzi and few others rich the kid should not be on this list

He made a song about a plug talking to him, that proves he is duumb

28 Lil Dicky

Lil dicky is the most cringe inducing rapper I’ve ever heard. His lyrics are completely unfunny and not creative. And his songs themselves are just pieces of garbage

35 Lil Barnacle

He raps about graphics sexual acts with adults enough said

It's a 10 year old racist

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.
