Get Silly!!! Who’s The Most Goofy Rapper of ’09?


Don’t front, you know the deal. When it’s all said and done, and the books are closed, 2009 is gonna go down as the year that rap got straight SILLY. If you haven’t noticed by now, it’s pretty obvious that in a year marked by a recession, motherfuckers need to laugh to hold back the tears. So to commemorate the trend, I’ve put together a list of 10 MCs known to get retarded on the mic for our listening pleasure. Question is who dumbed out the most in ’09? Ya’ll be the judge, in the meantime, here are the nominees.

Soulja Boy – While he might be working with everyone from Kanye to Rihanna to Snoop, it doesn’t hide the fact that the kid’s barely out of diapers. So you know where his head’s at. SB doesn’t only get silly, he writes songs and makes up dances about it…and more importantly they’re hits.

Lil Wayne – I crowned Weezy a silly genius at the end of ‘09, due to his limitless low-brow punch lines on No Ceilings. Let’s face it, the man appeals to the third grader in all of us with lines like “my bullets mean business, they should wear a tie and shit.” According to “Watch My Shoes,” Wayne’s “Sillier than Vic said/Soulja boy and A-rab.”

Gucci Mane –Guch has an iced out Odie charm hangin from his chain, his watch looks ignorant and his pockets are so fat, “they kinda look silly,” but he still managed to get more checks than Czechoslovakia this year. Yup. BRRR!

50 Cent – Mr. Aggressive Content donned a wig and a fur coat this year and created one of the best alter egos since Tyrone Bigguns. That’s right, Pimpin Curly is one funny bastard. Pay homage, respect.

Rick Ross – Officer Ricky might have dropped one of the illest album of the year, but I’m sorry, that whole C.O. fiasco was just plain ‘ole silly. SMH

Eminem – Remember this…

Nicki Minaj – She spits like a robot and makes faces like she’s possessed. To top it all off, she’s got almost as many testical references as her boss Weezy has about poop. As-bes-tos.

OJ Da Juiceman- AYE! Read this

Wacka Flacka Flame – You can tell a lot by a man’s rap name.

Shawty Lo – It’s all about this performance right here. Doesn’t get much better than that.

So who takes the cake. Cast your vote in the comments section.—Jesse Gissen

    Silliest? I’m just going to go ahead and refer to this drop as 09′s BIGGEST RAP COON, and put my nominations in for Gucci Mane and 50 Cent. Done.

    • Lowedwn

      co-sign, w/ dishonorable mention to Ho-J

    • zayzkidd

      I agree.

  • Pierzy

    OJ. What a failure.

  • Cal

    As much as I love Em I still haven’t forgiven him for what has got to be his worst music video/song/rap EVAR!!! He may have apologized on that Complex interview but I still got a cynical eye on Relapse 2 just in case he pulls some retarded shit like that again.

    OJ, Gucci, and Wacka take the cake for me.

  • Sammy Davis Sue Ya

    Soulja Boy is the silliest! Hands Down

  • El Tico Loco

    Special shoutout to the Ying Yang twins for paving the way.

    • Master CHeef

      HAHAHA. You ain’t ever lied, you crazy Costa Rican.

    • GregSIDE

      Ya’ll 4gettin’ the man that really paved the way…. Ol Dirty. If your to young or you don’t remember Dirt’s craziness get the blakroc album and listen to track one.

      • zayzkidd

        We can go back further than Ole Dirty…. Humpty Hump.

  • hate

    co-sign pierzy

  • What The ?

    The craziest part is these fools are banking cake, goes to show how many imbeciles are out there and how 9-12 year olds do the most purchasing, it’s a shame music is going this rout, typically the more advanced you are the less you make with exception to few.

  • Kid Pistol

    It depends what kinda silly we’re talkin about, cuz that Shawty Lo vid was shhhwap silly, same as the Em vid unfortunately.

    50 was hilarious this year tho, so I’m gonna cast my vote to 50.

  • Souja boy is whack

    Rap has always had it’s case of ”silly rappers”. But at least they used to make pretty good music. Now it’s just garbage after garbage coming out.


  • John Cochran

    If you replaced that odie chain with a metal collar, Gucci would be a slave. There’s a difference between being silly and cooning. You gotta have fun, Jeezy’s music is fun but the recession album was some real shit. I hope next year people get serious and make some meaningful shit. I also hope labels stop running down south and shed some light on the east and west coasts again.

    • zayzkidd

      I agree with the Jeezy album, but only if Jeezy had some type of skills though.

  • Penelope Rodriguez

    I say Gucci.

    That Em video was not funny at all

  • Brooklyn

    well, since half of these dudes don’t actually rap more so than blurt out incoherent shit to a beat, i wouldn’t call it the silliest rapper, i’ll just call it the nigga with the dumbest shit to say in a song. probably a three-way tie between oj, gucci, and soulja boy.

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Whatever happened to VIC? Thought he was taking over the game. Yeah OK.

    Where’s OJ? Think those boos hurt his feelings?

    Goofy? 50 with that Curly sh*t was hilarious.

    A Wack Fukking Flame shouldn’t even get the time of day.

    • zayzkidd

      50 wack too.

  • AZ40

    HOW DARE YOU DISRESPECT THE WORD SILLY WITH THIS POST….these people aren’t silly, IGNORANT,RETARDED,COONISH, or just plan FOOLISH is more like it, they should kill to be cosidered just SILLY, but none of them are

    • DV8

      cosign that,

      except for 50, he had his moments during the Rick Ross viral beef that where hilarious.

  • Martian

    Yo these are silly but more foolish silly, cuz my little 3 yr old cousins are silly, these are some foolish young man…oh I vote the whole industry including the people who support these morons as silly!! I mean Foolish!!

  • Craig

    O.J. the Juiceman

  • droopey

    Maybe silly but they gettin’ paid.

    Oh no I didn’t.

    I would have to say 50 is the silliest.


    No matter what year it is, the goofiest nigga in rap will ALWAYS be the one that barks in his interviews, songs, and in regular conversation. And then said negro tries to have a professional boxing match, just to back out and get replaced by… wait for it… COOLIO???

    My Nomination: D.M.X.

  • Master CHeef

    First I’ve heard of shawty lo in a long while. In retrospect, tip really shut that nigga down when he finally responded on Paper Trail.


    As long as DMX is in his 40′s barking like a damn dog he will ALWAYS be the goofiest mufucka in rap.



    mr “i keep a iced out bart by my heart” it’s gucci

  • nike Addict 707

    what about that one rapper who named himself Bitch Bitch????
    He should be an honorable mention.

  • BW

    50 Cent

  • KiLLuMaNaTii

    Deff 50 & Em. The rest of these niggas are seriously DUMB. OJ is metally retarted, Gucci cant speak N has cartoon character jewels, Waynes a faggot tight jeans wearin yeast infection havin cough syrup sippin fake blood tattooed crack on his head stupid fuck, soulja boy buys chains that are iced out RC cars (wow lol, coonery), OFFICER RICKYYY!!! LOL

    • zayzkidd

      Sounds like Lil Wayne hurt your feelings. Did dude steal your girl or something? Seriously, Lil Wayne did fall off.

  • Tony Grands

    If you’re using the word “silly” in the literal context, I don’t think rap cats are silly nowadays. Nigganometry & coontivity have taking over. Cats forgot how to have fun for the sake of being Super Slaves, thinking that life is ‘Showtime @ the Apollo.”

    Silliest rapper ever, is Shock G. Humpty Hump has the lifetime achievement award locked down (same guy, for those who didn’t know). A dude would have to rap with a baby pacifier around his neck, & only go out in public in Speedo’s to trump that.

    But, shout out to Birdman for that tattoo on top of his head.

  • Semaj Raff

    i was hoping to see wiz khalifa but after this roster provided i guess he doesn’t come close. how about yung berg?? lmao

  • Zee-Kay

    the award goes to souljah boy straight up! that nigga wasn’t just being silly once just to make niggas laugh…he’s just plain ol’ silly…born silly and will forever be silly…just give that nigga his prize!

  • you a fooool

    Please Chzechoslovakia don’t exist!!! In 1991 Czechr Republic and Slovakia was born…just some knowledge 4 yall..

  • Simple like ABC, 123


  • abdulnasir

    double co-sign pierzy, aye!

  • zayzkidd

    I hate to say it because I am from New Orleans, but Baby is the dude that started all of this dumb a$$ goofy rap. Once Baby said that he’s not a rapper but a “game-spitter,” that killed rap.

  • BGZ

    Word, have I missed out on something?

    How come no one is calling out Gucci for swagga jacking Baby’s bird chain, bird call and inability to rap?

  • latino heat

    how were people naming ODB and Humpty Hump and no one mentioned Biz Markie? that is the original “siily” rapper. and deserves that hall of fame spot. come on ya’ll, Pickin’ Boogers? the video for Just A Friend. you can’t get much sillier than that.
