List RulesOnly 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. Below, you'll find who many feel are the worst of the worst in the genre. Sure, these best of and worst of lists are subjective, but plenty of us can agree on who the wack rappers are. What some 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? Who is the worst white rapper? Which artist made the stupidest rap ever? Who do you think are the 100 worst rappers, or even the top 10? Take a look at the list of bad rappers below and cast your votes accordingly. And, if you need a chaser after this list, dive into the best new hip hop with our list of 2020's top rap songs.
