Since there is no suspense in this list, let shall proceed backward (I also believe it to be more intriguing to see who barely made the list). Eminem is the most popular rapper in America, Europe, Africa, and on whatever planet those damn aliens were discovered by the Mexican government recently. There is no need to attempt to create a false buildup.
Eminem is a controversial figure with a bark that matches his bite, A+ rap talents, a lengthy, impressive resume, and numerous mentees. He is comparable to the best-playing, white basketball player who can go to any court in the neighbourhood and perform. You don’t care about your list or what you like to eat for breakfast if Eminem isn’t among the top 5 rappers ever.

2. Mac Miller
The most gifted artist on this list is definitely Mac Miller. Miller was a master at combining different genres, creating catchy melodies, and, of course, whipping some ass on the mic. Also appreciate how openly and honestly he addressed mental health in his more recent writing. Whether you were black, white, Spanish, or Asian, Mac simply knew how to make his music talk to you, which is why he is sorely missed today.
- Favorite Mac Miller Album: “Circles”
- Favorite Mac Miller Song: “Donald Trump”
3. Beastie Boys
This triplet from New York demonstrated to the world how creative hip-hop can be by fusing the genre with other genres and hitting us with lyrical content from a white perspective, which was relatively new at the time. They did this through their dress sense, their assured delivery, and their hardcore rap approach (Which almost sounded like a mockery of hip-hop music most of the time). They were the first well-known white rap group, so that ought to mean something, right?
- Favorite Album: “Paul’s Boutique”
- Favorite Song: “Intergalatic”
4. Paul Wall
American rapper and DJ Paul Michael Slayton is better known by his stage name, Paul Wall. He has been associated with Swishahouse for a significant portion of his career, has put out albums on the label, and has worked with many other rappers who are also label clients.
