And no, this list doesn’t have Kevin “K-Fed” Federline, Young Dro, Crunchy Black, Master P, Tony Yayo or Diddy, for various reasons…but here’s who I think are the 5 worst rappers ever.
5. Warren G
I don’t care if he is Dr. Dre’s brother, I don’t care if he’s responsible for some of the hottest records to drop in the 90’s, I don’t care if he did single handedly saved Def Jam from going out of business, this nigga is on the list because he spit this garbage ass line “What’s next, what’s next, what’s n-x-e-t…”. Not only did he say it, but no one at Def Jam thought it was a bad idea to let that shit be pressed up…My boy has been trying to convince me for years that it should be “What’s next, what’s next, what’s n-ext, e.t.” as in, “what’s next ? we’re about to smoke some e.t., of course”. I call bullshit.
4. Jim Jones
This mumblemouth ass muhfucka just needs to go back to being Cam’ron’s hypeman, instead of using Juelz Santana’s throwaway rhymes and trying to be an MC…I remember the “Horse & Carriage” video, nigga. For someone who’s as wack as he is, his swagger and ego is HUGE, and I don’t know why.
3. Baby aka Birdman aka #1 Stunna
This dude has ghostwriters out the ass, but still can’t flow for shit. All you have to do is let them record it first, then go in and follow the blueprint…yet he can’t. I beg anyone to find a hot Birdman verse and send it to me.
2. Bow Wow
It’s sad when everyone and their mama know that you don’t write your own lyrics, but it works for some people…Diddy, Dr. Dre, etc. these niggas are able to take others’ lyrics, yet flow in such a way that you almost believe that they could have written it, and pull it off convincingly. But when this lil bastard does it, 2 bars into his songs you instantly go “JD wrote that” or “T.I. wrote that”. And the fact that he doesn’t realize how corny he is makes him even worse. Midget.
1. Silkk The Shocker
Not even close, hands down the worst ever. This dude has a knack for messing up every song he’s even been on. Even his brothers Master P & C-Murder, who built their careers off of poorly imitating 2pac and using “Uhhhhhhh” as actual lyrics, are better than this lame. It’s hard to be this bad, even if you do it on purpose.
So, while you marinate on that, I’ll be back later with the 5 best rappers in the history of hip-hop.
