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

Trash but to be fair he is popular - B0S5J4M3S

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

In a video that I saw today, Cardi B admitted that she's only in it for the money, and doesn't care about being lyrical. - allamassal

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

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

She sounds like mickey mouse on drugs

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

With songs like D Rose and Boss, he's pretty awful. The beat saves him but without them he's a hopeless case. - AlphaQ

His rapping is so trash. I'm mad that he's so big right now. - OnMyBlockFan

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

5 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!

Not really - B0S5J4M3S

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.

He's not terrible

7 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

8 Post Malone Post Malone Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist.

He's just str8 up trash

12 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

Honestly he this year he has been good - B0S5J4M3S

Wheelchair Jimmy go away - DaWyteNight

Drake killed X! 111111111! - Not_A_Weeaboo

No he didn't. Drake lives in Canada and XXX lives in Florida. Those places are pretty far from each other. - AlphaQ

13 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!

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

He sounds just like drake but with a sore throat.

What is so special about this guy? It sure isn't his voice, that's for sure. And he isn't lyrical either. He just makes "bangers" but that doesn't make him good. - DaWyteNight

No he's not that bad. - AlphaQ

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

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.

Why isn’t he at the very top of the list? He’s the poster boy of mumble rap. Come on “The King Of Teens” are you kidding me? He supports mumble rap 100% and denounces old school rap especially Tupac and B.I.G

29 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 the best


30 Offset

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

31 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

Autotune, autotune, autotune, bad lyrics and more autotune. He was the best part of Kodak Black's "Too Many Years", but his own music is pretty disappointing. His album Catch These Vibes started out good but just got worse with every song. He just talks about how he has money, how he has girls that want to suck him off because he has money now, how he used to struggle but now is livin' the good life because he has money, how he can steal your girl because of his money, and how haters are mad at him because he has money.
