The Greatest White Rappers of All Time

List Criteria: Only white hip-hop artists for this list.

Though it took a while for the music to catch on with them, some of the best rappers in hip hop history are white. While this may be hard to fathom or even accept for some, white rappers have not only been some of the most unappreciated or scoffed at in the game, but they frequently fly under the radar. These white rappers are getting the due they deserve, since after all, they are considered some of the best in history.

Beginning with the introduction of the Beastie Boys (Ad-Rock, MCA, and Mike D) in the late 1980s, it became culturally acceptable for white rappers to be accepted by the larger hip hop community. In addition to the groundbreaking Beastie Boys, in 1999, after years of mainstream white hip hop diluted the pool, Eminem became one of the most popular and respected MCs of his time. With provocative and controversial lyrics, along with association with legendary producer Dr. Dre, Slim Shady catapulted to the top of both the album charts and became at one point one of the best rappers in the game.

More recently, Macklemore has become one of the most popular rappers on the planet. His socially conscious lyrics combined with the slick production of Ryan Lewis have combined two elements of hip hop to create one of the catchiest, and most acclaimed sounds in recent memory. While there are still some people who can't stand his brand of rap, Macklemore is easily one of the greatest white rappers of all time.

This is the Ultimate List of the greatest white rappers of all time. If you notice someone is missing, feel free to add him or her. Vote on who you consider to be the best white hip hop artist of all time.
