List Rules Vote up and add all of your favorite country rappers.

Ever heard of country rappers? Blending the two seemingly opposite genres of country music and hip hop, hick hop music has taken the music world by storm. Known also as kuntry or rural rap, which rose to prominence in the early 2000s, has continued to rise and grow in popularity. The best rural rap artists have slick rhymes and a predominantly Southern drawl that perfectly meshes with the dirty beats they rap over. Check out the most popular country rap songs of all-time.

So, who is the best country-rap artist? Considering the relative infancy of this particular blend of genres, this isn't an easy question to answer. Top artists like Bubba Sparxxx and Big & Rich are considered two of the most popular country-rap artists because they were at the forefront of the movement, but this list also includes other pioneers like Jawga Boyz, and up-and-comers like Yelawolf and Jelly Roll as well. If you're a big fan of rap country, then you should have your voice heard on this list. 

This list should include all of the best country-rap artists, so if you notice anyone is missing, then feel free to add them, regardless of whether or not it is an individual artist or the group. So, "who are the best country-rap bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest country-rap musician ever?" That's up to to you to determine, and choose wisely as you want your favorite musician to be accurately represented.
