Rappers with the Best Mixtapes, Ranked

Updated August 14, 2020 19.1k votes 1.5k voters 8.6k views35 items

Hip hop heads, it's time to rank rap artists with the best mixtapes. Since rap mixtapes are usually released with low marketing, hype plays a big factor in a mixtape's success. This list of rappers with the best mixtapes does not include studio albums or playlists, but you can vote for rappers with the best albums here. Which rapper has the best mixtapes?

When it comes to voting for the best rapper mixtapes, Chance the Rapper, Drake, and Lil Wayne are usually the first rappers mentioned. Hip hop fans all agree that Acid Rap, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and Da Drought 3 are some of the best rap mixtapes of all time. 

Vote for who you think are the rappers with the best mixtapes. Feel free to add any rappers missing from the list.
