Top 5 Best/Worst Rapper Names

December 27, 2011 · Posted in lists · 56 Comments 

A long long time ago #BestRapperNames was trending on twitter. I’ve been meaning to do my own list with the best and worst rapper names for ages now. So let’s get straight to bizne$$ (No Birdman is not on the list). Hit the jump for the list.

Best Rapper Names

Busta Rhymes

He’ll busta rhyme so hard it’ll break ya neck!

Snoop Doggy Dogg

Why did he ever change his name? I loved the Doggy Dogg part. I especially liked what he did with the entire Dogg character on the covers of Doggystyle, and Tha Last Meal. Without a doubt “Snoop Dogg” helped Calvin Broadus become a household name.

Del The Funkee Homosapien

Del could’ve easily been in the top 5 list below here. But, I love a homosapien who isn’t afraid to step outside the box with a funkee name.

Ol’ Dirty Bastard

I thought calling someone a bastard was an insult? HA, this guy made it part of his name! RIP ODB

Puff Daddy

Here’s another rapper that should’ve never changed his name. “Puff Daddy” just gleams of jewels, women, luxury cars, and of course fur coats.

Honorable mentions: Eazy E, Dr. Dre, Slick Rick, Chingo Bling, Eminem.

Worst Rapper Names

Rick Ross

Why would one drug dealer take the name of another drug dealer? Wait, William Roberts…never…sold…oh..really?

Anything with Lil’, Young, or Big in front of it.

C’mon guys be creative. Be funkee.

Jim Jones

Really? After the Kool-Aid guy? The Guyana mass murders/suicides is the 2nd largest loss of American civilian life in history, only behind the 9/11 attacks. I know his name is Joseph Jones, but you’re killin’ me Jim Jones.

Tity Boi

The name is stupid within itself, and 2 Chainz isn’t much better, but I’ll take it. 2 CHAINZ!

Arab

“Arab” is correctly pronounced A-reb. Thanks for drilling Ay-rab into my brain. PS. Ay-Rab pronunciation is offensive.

Honorable mentions: Shorty Shitstain, Soulja Boy Tell’Em, The Game

That’s my list. Hope you agree, but that’s my list. Take into consideration that music wasn’t a relevant factor in this list. The only things I considered was how “cool” the name is. What’s some of your best/worst rapper names?

    @SrGangsta, ahah in a certain way, my comment was a joke, was ironic. But that is the biggest joke i’ve ever seen.

    Common Sense Reply:

    @ManuFbaby,

    50 Cent is not a rapper ? check out the “big ten mixtape” its harder than all this shit that comes out these days

    [Reply]

    ManuFbaby Reply:

    @Common Sense, Rightly i checked it out and i was a little disappointed…I mean nobody cares about fifty anymore, it’s a sad but he is finished, he will never come back as strong as he used to be before.

    jules Reply:

    @ManuFbaby , At least fifty’s Street King Campagne is very honorable. He tries to change the living conditions for people in africa that die everyday because of hunger. At least that’s the idea.

    WTF is a Waka Flocka Flame !! Fuck outta here.

    Tity Boi- At least least call yourself Tities Boi, At least you sound like you want both tits instead of only 1.

    Gucci Mane is dumb ass fuck especially being named after a clothing company you can’t wear because you always wearing orange jumpsuits.

    Soulja Boy- Let’s stick in a military uniform & go fight in the war. Without his money living igorance, he’ll cry like a little bitch.

  8. Royal Swagness on December 27th, 2011 11:56 pm

    Yung Berd- I got a new name for him. Sleepy. He’s one of the easy people to rob. He’s the only one to get robbed in and out the united states with no guns in the daytime.

    The Game- Your not running in game since 2005. The only think he runs is that mouth. The last 3 albums he dropped makes excellent drink coasters, freebee for fun in the park & hide money in who would even look there.

    KiDANT Reply:

    @alex, I know he also calls himself “weezy” “weezyfbaby” but in my opinion Tunechi is way better than Wayne…#Justsaying

  15. Laney on December 28th, 2011 2:31 am

    You picked some shitty ass names for the best ones. The honorable mentions were better than the actual 5. I think Jim Jones is an alright rapper name, not bad enough to be 1 of the 5 worst though.

  20. Dfinity on December 28th, 2011 5:08 am

    I know it’s not singers, but Frank Ocean and The Weeknd should be mentioned..

    As far as Rappers go,
    Ludacris
    Pharrell
    Lupe Fiasco
    Push-a-ton
    Earl Sweatshirt (Fuck it, it’s unique)
    Curren$y

    umm, Chamillionaire is extra corny… so corny that it’s the only bad name i can think of…

  21. Chris on December 28th, 2011 5:20 am

    Lil Wayne kinda makes sense he’s little and his first name is wayne since he drop the d but the most creative is wiz Khalifa if you ask me.

    jules Reply:

    @Chris, What’s the point of wiz khalifa’s name? Don’t get it.
