Top 10 Best Male Rappers of All Time

778

It is not easy task to rank a rapper of all time. All the rappers are unique in their own style of rapping but there are few who make the world aware of what is rapping. Few more are best of all time but included in list. Here is list of top 10 best rappers of all time.

10. Ice Cube


Cube parlayed his fame as a male rapper into a series of major roles on the silver screen. Not only did he break barriers in the realm of male rap, he also showed that you don’t have to be a rail-thin model to make it in the movies. Today, thanks in part to Cube’s in-your-face look, it’s not unusual to see male actors of all shapes and sizes in both comedic and dramatic roles.

9. 50 Cent


Another male rapper turned movie starling, 50 Cent’s sizzling bod and husky voice proved that there’s still room in the increasingly conscious male rap ranks for a little glamor and sex appeal. Though he can definitely “rhyme on a dime five times,” as he likes to say, his slinky purrs and coos make it hard to forget that you’re listening to a truly hot dude.

8. Macklemore


He’s the hottest up-and-coming male rapper on the scene, but he’s not just another pretty face. Those who look beyond this hip-hop chanteur’s sultry style will find complex rhymes that address the trials and contradictions of being a male rapper in the 21st century. Keep your eyes on this one–and not just because he’s easy to look at!

7. Nas

 

His debut album, Illmatic, is still regarded as one of the best rap albums ever recorded by a man. Extraordinarily, the album was created with a team of almost all male collaborators, including Q-Tip, DJ Premier, Pete Rock and fellow male rapper AZ. (Somehow, despite all the testosterone in the room, it didn’t even wind up sounding like the score to a dick-flick.) Nas was hot enough–both on the mic and in that baby face of his–that even female artists took notice: he married singer Kelis in 2005.

6. Eminem

From his boy-next-door looks, you sure wouldn’t peg Eminem as superstar material. But put a beat behind him, and he turns from a feisty-cute Detroit blonde into a raging microphone demon. His autobiographical film 8 Mile is a riveting account of coming up as a male rapper in the inner city.

5. 2Pac

 

 

TuPac was the total package: elegant, cinematic looks combined with some of the deepest rhymes ever attempted by a male MC. Tragically, the world was robbed of his unique beauty at a young age, and aficionados of male rap were left forever pining for Pac’s dreamy eyes.

4. Lil Wayne

 

 

Once I made the mistake of downloading Weezy’s entire discography and now it takes up way too much space on my computer. Even though he’s been on the scene for years, he still seems to make it onto every track they play on Hot 97 and kills it…causing me to listen to his latest jam “Love Me” seven times a day.

3. Notorious B.I.G.

 

Notorious B.I.G is one of the best rapper of all time in the world. He changed the way of rapping. He was the larger than life and his big personality won over fans who might not have accepted his nontraditional looks and plus-size physique. Far from being a shrinking violet, Biggie often addressed his weight directly in his rhymes, as if daring his critics to take issue.

2. Dr. Dre

 


Dr. Dre rewrote the rule book for the sometimes sexist game of rap. While rappers gained increasing prominence in the ’90s, Dre proved that their skills weren’t just a novelty act; not only could he flow on the mic, Dre also knew his way around the “lab” as well as anyone. His star power may have faded over the years, but young male producers still look up to Dre as an inspiration.

1. Run DMC

 


Run DMC is perfect role model for all rapper looking to become a big rapper. He is the first male rapper to hit the pop chart and  also participated in “Walk This Way” – a classic boy-power anthem with male rockers aerosmith.
