Milo is awesome if you're into that. Freddie Gibbs is one of the better currently active rappers as well.
Personally I think Wiki is one of the best rappers because of his live performances. Ratking is seriously awesome live.

knowing /mu/ these days this thread will be filled with gay ass trap artists.

milo is great but he's much more polarizing and niche than most rappers discussed on /mu/

it's basically nerd rap that doesn't suck ass for once
>>
in reality its kendrick

>>61607538
fuck STFDC is definitely one of the best records from 2015, but he's such a small artist that he gets overlooked
>>
>>61607330
>that small venue
>that dj actually doing something
>those comfy ass NY beats
I've never gone to a hip-hop show live but I'd want it to be like this. Also the crowd seems really into it for the most part.

Kendrick Lamar

1. riff raff
2. jody highroller
3. the neon icon

Nas is the best rapper imo but his recent stuff has been sub par
nas' flow is untouchable

>>61607373
From my understanding Tupac brought production into rapping. So it wasn't just a HARD HEATING BEAT YO, there was actually some level of music behind the song.

Saw Ratking live. The crowd was shit and their shit broke but they still played a great set!

Kendrick, Drake, Kevin Gates, Travi$ Scott, and Montana of 300 the best new cats making noise right now.

Best older (10+ years) cats still making noise right now would be Kanye, Game, and Lupe.
>>
LUPE FIASCO

Stop saying this like it's an inherently bad thing.

>troll him
>he gets mad

wow what a huge surprise

don't really agree with him on the death grips thing though, it's not like the title "niggas on the moon" was really aimed at black people.

If you get offended by a death grips album cover, then it's had the desired effect.
>>
>>61607746
Listen to more hip hop kid

>>61607243
Kanye doesn't even rap tho

In no particular order (kendrick #1 right now tho)
Kendrick
Kanye
Milo
Busdriver
Open Mike Eagle
Freddie Gibbs
Joey Bada$$
El p./Killer Mike
Ab Soul

Probably forgetting some, idk

>>61607373
He represented the genre. The guy wasn't just a decent rapper, he was an icon to hip-hop as well. His attitude, his voice, his personality, everything he stood for essentially became engrained in hip-hop culture. He was the first rapper to really do that.
>>
Young Thug is the greatest artist of our time.
>>
>"rappers"
>sigh

Jonathan Mathis

>>61607654
Early on yeah sure but he's been switching things up recently.

Tbh that boom-bap revival thing was NYC trying to rediscover its sound after being under the radar for so long. The grimey boom-bap style of hip-hop is a staple of New York hip-hop.
>>
In order of best to worst
1. Lupe
2. King Los when he freestyles
3. AFRO when he finally releases that album
4. Killer Mike and El P
5. Kendrick

Not much else out there, wish Hopsin didnt turn into such a faggot. He never shoulda gone into feels shit, he was a freestyle lyrical king kinda guy. I felt he maybe coulda raised the game up but just fell off into irrelevancy. 2010 and after the game has been pretty dry, the fact Kendrick is looked to as the best atm just goes to show that.

Definitely not the best right now but I reckon now that he's left Funk Volume, Dizzy Wright could go on and become a force. He's got mad talent, Hopsin was holding him back.

MC Ride easily.
If you disagree with me you're a hipster nigger.

He can lay down a good flow but 'hipsters' aren't going to disagree with you, rap fans will tho.

>>61611261
Literally the only similarity they share is that they both smoke a shit ton of weed.

Dizzy is lyrically, musically, and technically a better rapper than Wiz.

Denzel Curry has the most potential to become huge in my opinion. He is very talented, and has a admirable aesthetic. I can see him becoming big.

>>61607252
He's worth a mention.
>>61607330
Milo is great, but Freddie Gibbs is probably one of the best rappers in this time period.
>>61609611
Good list
