The Best Jewish Rappers Of All Time

Anti-semitic behavior has no place in the music industry, especially the rap world. In light of the recent news and ongoing discrimination towards the Jewish community, we've ranked the greatest Jewish rappers of all time (aka rappers whose music you should be streaming instead of Kanye West's). Although the hip-hop industry is mostly dominated by Christian-raised black artists, Jewish rappers still hold a significant place among the ranks of hip-hop's GOATs, with Grammy Award-winning megastars Drake and Doja Cat paving the way for future generations of Jewish rap artists. From Gen Z West Coast emo rapper 24KGoldn to the late Mac Miller (rest in peace), this compilation of Jewish hip-hop artists contains all of your favorite rappers among the Jewish race, both living and deceased. Famous comedians Andy Samberg and Lil Dicky never cease to create space for Jews in Hollywood through their playful lyricism and IDGAF attitudes; and Orthodox Jewish rapper Nissim Black remains a force to be reckoned with among fellow hip-hop musicians, unapologetically expressing his faith across profound records. 

Which of these rappers do you believe are the greatest Jewish hip-hop artists of all time? Vote below for the best Jewish rappers who deserve placement at the top of your playlists, and feel free to check out our other Jewish musicians lists across all genres if you'd like to discover more incredible music by the industry's most-talented Jewish artists.
