This is the section where you brag about doing poorly because (choose one):

  • a) Modern music is terrible. Real music died in 1963, 1973, 1983, or 1993 depending on your age.

  • b) These aren't real rappers because they are too popular.

Modern Music is terrible! If it wasn’t composed by Apollo on a Lyre before 300 B.C then it’s not worth listening to!

to be fair, even I think a few of these aren't real rappers. I look at it like this. In the 90s/00s we had big dog rappers. In the 2010s we have chihuahua rappers. Thats the comparison.

You're gonna talk about the big dog rappers from the 90s, and you didn't include the Dawg himself on your own quiz?! X is gonna meet you outside, meet you outside.

a)

Ten out of twenty. Not sure if we get all of those guys, or at least as much of them, over the pond, but I did recognise most names. The middle two on the penultimate line and the very last dude, I have never even heard of.

You aren't missing much. Post Malone made the genius move (and I can't believe no one had thought of this rhyme before) and rhymed "rockstar" with "rockstar" somewhere like 60 times in one song.

PantsLobbyist made the genius move of mishearing the word rasta and maybe also the word shottas as "rockstar". Not once in the song does Post rhyme rockstar with itself (21 Savage does once though). In fact, not counting the background vocals in the outro, the word rockstar is only said six times throughout the song, thrice by Post and thrice by 21.

Nicki Minaj is one of the best lyricists of the 2010s. Maybe get acquainted with her work other than Anaconda and Starships, and you'll see. Personally, I recommend you to listen to her feature on Monster, by Kanye, Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Bon Iver, where she has the most memorable verse while still being a rookie rapper. Other than that, just remove your head from your derrière; it's not a hat.

These are some of the most famous rappers of all-time. I do think it could use some less obvious choices, but I don't think "who are these people" is a legitimate criticism of this quiz.

Quizmaster: Predicting the nature of comments does not delegitimise them. I absolutely love hip-hop, but this quiz shows just how terrible commercial rap music has become. If I did a top twenty based solely on their music, I think only Eminem might possibly get a look in. Even Tupac made fluffy crap designed for the mass-market. I’d shut up and go away if it weren’t for the very real existence of Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Public Enemy, Brand Nubian, Beastie Boys, Eric B and Rakim, NWA, Wu-Tang Clan, Naughty By Nature, Cypress Hill, Gang Starr, Das EFX, People Under The Stairs, Ugly Duckling, The Roots, Blackalicious, Mobb Deep, Digable Planets (to name just a few) or of gifted rappers like Q-Tip, Kool Keith, NaS, Busta Rhymes, Del Tha Funky Homosapien, KRS-One, Guru or Chali 2na. We even have rappers in the UK like Roots Manuva, Jehst and Wordsmith. I wouldn’t recognise them all either, but we might learn something about a beautiful art form

I agree with this,

But I would like to see at least one member of the Wu-Tang Clan as one of the most influential hip-hop groups ever.

Ice Cube must be here because of the history also and the NWA (Dr. Dre or Easy-E would be also acceptable). My favourite from this list even I think there are much better rappers in this quiz. Strong fondations are everithing :)))

I would like to see also Ice-T because of the Body Count and the whole subgenre.

This is not a suggestion, this is just by my taste.

Personally, I do not care who should not be here.

I would like to read what the rest of you think, who SHOLD be here and WHY?

Let's play :)

CaptainUnderpant's comment makes me feel so old! I've never been particularly into rap, but I'm familiar with most of the people/groups Alexquiz17 listed, just from being alive when they were popular.

I'm surprised these guys have dropped out of rotation -- I figured there would be a "classic rap" genre by now, the same way there's classic rock that young people still know.

Yeah, man - old school all the way. This is both due to my age, and everything that comes with that, but also to changes within the genre. And, no, some of those changes haven't been benign. I agree with Koji on the need for somebody from Wu-Tang (I actually thought one of the pictures was of Ol' Dirty), but the saddest misses for me were Chuck D and either Q-Tip or Phife. A cross-generational selection would be cool - so Drake gets to stay, but Grandmaster Flash comes in too.

If Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West and Andre 3000 don't make it into your top 20 for rap from a sheer "quality of the music" perspective you've just got to accept you've got extremely weird taste that you shouldn't expect others to have. I don't know if I've ever seen a top 25 albums list in the genre from a serious publication without at least one album apiece from each of them, and usually more than one.
