20 Of Hip-Hop’s Fastest Rappers

Twista

Years back, there was a commercial for toys called Micro Machines, and the announcer talked so fast that you couldn’t catch a single word that he said. Maybe that was his shtick, and he was actually telling everyone the cars were so small that you could choke on them if you accidentally ate one (Who would do that though?). The point of annunciating at such a high speed is to impress spectators as they watch/hear you breeze through your thoughts while still sounding somewhat coherent. That’s a gift, especially in hip-hop.

The most common style of fast-rapping is often called “Chopper,” and it started in the Midwest and slowly made its way worldwide. We’ve had rappers over time spit with swift ferocity, but it’s about maintaining the integrity of lyricism while speed rhyming. Here a few of those artists for your listening pleasure. Some you probably have heard of, while others are really worth checking out.

  • Sonny G

    Dabrat got cheated off this list. Missy Elliot too.

  • gorillamonk

    Chris Brown!?! c’mon, how are you going to put CB on here but not have DaBrat?

    • yup yup

      Chris Brown isn’t on there. Busta Rhymes is on there, and they just so happened to use his verse from Chris Brown’s song “Look at me Now” as an example.

  • gorillamonk

    how do you pack in Bone Thugs and Harmony but separate Strange Music? this list needs an edit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/WesleyBarnett Wesley Barnett

      Nah that’s good…. Bone is a unit. Tech and Rittz are individuals.

    • yup yup

      Strange Music isn’t a single entity like Bone Thugs is.

  • Andy

    Where’s Machine Gun Kelly at?

    • SUSEJ

      hahahaha hopefully dead

  • Joe

    the fact that RA the Rugged Man isnt on here is ridiiiicculous. especially after his legends never die album that dropped this year… mann

    • joe

      outkast could have made this list too. and mgk.

      • yogi

        I don’t think Outkast should ne anywhere on her. Definitely missed MGK, and the fastest of them alll R.A. The Rugged Man, just look uo Media Midgets

  • Vanessa K Garza

    Strange Music is the best group doing it. Did YOU not hear MIDWEST CHOPPERS??? SMH……

  • StrangeMusic4life

    yet you dumbass’s left him off the Freshman XXL Class and put fags on there like Kirko Bangz? wtf?!

    • jtaylor991

  • Anirudh Anination

    MGK IS NOT IN THE LIST……….WTF????

  • Helen Bates

  • Nik

    Krizz Kaliko shouldn’t have made the list. Sure, he can occasional spit some quick bars, but he’s not a top 20.

    • Billy Landis

      Krizz is the shit!
      And there isn’t a lot of choppers out there that are easy to understand

  • No one

    No RA Rugged man!?!?

    Pattiak from AZ is pretty fast…

  • kevin arellano

    this list isn’t only missing twisted insane but also underrated from potluck. WTF?

  • kevin arellano

    this is missing hopsin, twisted insane, underrated from potluck, brotha lynch hung, wreckonize, and a whole bunch others. well at least when comparing to some of the guys on the list.

  • Master Öf Weed

    Not saying they suck but NONE of the Bone Thug members are faster or more intricate then Tech N9ne. And if anything Tech and Twista are equal, I will give credit to Twista because that’s what he specializes in when Tech has countless styles but if you listen to the song “Kill Shit” on Krizz Kaliko’s album “Kickin’ and Screaming” you’ll see what I mean.

    • Mokanutz

      You smoke way too much weed homie. Bizzy Bone is waaaay faster than tech. C’mon son put the bong/papers down.

      • Master Öf Weed

        Show me a song where he’s faster than Tech then if you think so.

  • Smevz

    BIG DADDY KANE. where the hell is he.

  • UndeadSion

  • DL

    where the F is Bone thugs, or at least Krayzie Bone?? And no Twista? Those are two no-brainers. Rugged Man should be in there too.

    • Clay Borries

      Did you bother looking at the list? I’m assuming not, or you wouldn’t be making this idiotic statement.

  • Lip

    Man you can mess with Young Blaze on speed and lyrics 344 in a min WOW

  • guy

    das efx?

  • jtaylor991

    I like the content, but I can’t stand having to click through slides and load the whole page again for EVERY part. I have to load the page 21 times to read this probably otherwise short 1 page piece. It breaks up the flow of things, especially since I start back at the top and have to scroll back down to see the next thing, that’s the worst part, it breaks up the flow of everything. Please consider changing this up. Thanks.
