List Rules Only famous rappers and hip hop artists

Featuring SoundCloud rappers who went mainstream to YouTubers who also rap (sort of), this is the definitive list of the worst rappers of all time. For every decent, innovative rapper out there, there are several copycat artists that bring nothing to the table. We’ve listed what we feel are the worst of the worst in the genre. We know that best of and worst of lists are subjective. What we feel is the bottom of the barrel, you might think is pretty great. On the other hand, rappers like Vanilla Ice, Marky Mark, and The Insane Clown Posse have been, for the most part, universally panned over the years. Sales have nothing to do with it either. While researching this list we’ve discovered there are some million-selling artists like Iggy Azalea, Drake and Nikki Minaj that are pretty polarizing among hip hop aficionados.

We need your input. Who, to you, is the worst rapper out there? Take a look at the list of bad rappers below and cast your votes accordingly.
