The Best African Rappers

List Criteria: Vote up and add all of your favorite African hip hop artists.

African hip hop artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good African hip hop bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top African hip hop bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. African hip hop groups and rappers are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all African rappers on this list got started. These are truly the greatest African hip hop bands of all time, since the most famous African rappers ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best African hip hop music.

You can click on the African rapper names to see more information about that particular notable African hip hop group. If they're near the top of the best African hip hop artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top African hip hop bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the African rapper names themselves.

Examples include Don Jazzy and D'banj. Click thumbs up for the items you do like and downvote the items you think are dumb. The best items on this list are the ones with the most votes, so show things like JJC and Tony Tetuila some love.

All important, significant and iconic names in African rap music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new African hip hop bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of African rap, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into African hip hop music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good African rappers with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent African hip hop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best African hip hop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest African hip hop musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular African rappers that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Share this with your friends via social networks to see what they think of the order of the list. (32 items)
