Unused Rap Names For Sale – First Come, First Serve

I’m sort of obsessed with rap names. A while back I wrote a blog about my pseudonym of choice if I ever picked up the mic (GINZBERG!) and then later I followed it up with some of hip-hop’s lamest aliases. Well, this go around I’ve collected a few dope nom de plumes that are still up for grabs.

As I’m writing this I still can’t believe some of these names have yet to be taken. Just remember where you heard it first, kiddies.

Sirius Black –  Out of all the names I came up with for this blog this is by far the best, IMHO. I mean this bad ass dude from the Harry Potter series is known for practicing black magic, breaking out of prison and being able to turn into a werewolf. Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than this. I guess MC’s ain’t up on JK Rowling.

Guv’nor – This is for all my aspiring British MCs. For those that don’t know, The Guv’nor, aka Lenny Mclean, was England’s toughest bare knuckle fighter. Along with beating people senseless for a living, he was also closely associated with notorious London gangsters The Krays. Guy Ritchie even gave him a cameo in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. And no, 50 Cent’s artist Governor doesn’t count—he’s R&B. Cheerio!

Update: Spoke to soon. Ends up there is a cat in London who beat me to the punch.

Sid Vicious – While we’re still across the pond, I’m surprised no one flipped Sid Vicious’ name from the infamous punk band The Sex Pistols. Party like a rock star!

Update: I must be on the right track. I have been informed there are several Kid Viciouses out there, most notably Royce da 5’9″‘s brother.

Apollo Creed – Come on Philly rappers. Show the brother some love.

Sergeant Slaughter – I smell a possible beef with Slaughterhouse.

BONUS: The Bear Jew – It’s only a matter of time. He’s coming, and unlike Drake, there’s no way he’ll be using AutoTune. HA!

What are some names you guys think would make great rap aliases? —Jesse Gissen

      Actually, when Allen Iverson was rapping, his stage name was “Jewels”, but he said he took the name from “Pulp Fiction” because that is his favorite movie.

      • http://Pierzy11@gmail.com Pierzy

        Good call. I believe he actually spelled it with a Z – Jewelz.

        But, being from Philly, I did my best to forget this and just remember his days on the court…

  • D. $cience

    I have some names I thought of before:

    $onny Carson- Well, since rappers take their names from real people nowadays (i.e. Rick Ross, Bump J, 50 Cent).

    Dexx Luthor- For the aspiring skateboard rappers.

    Lil’ Jack Horner- For the aspiring nursery-rhyme Soulja Boy wannabes.

    Grant Ill- Inspiration from Cee-Lo and Dangermouse’s “Gnarls Barkley”.

    Nike Da Goddess- For my female emcees who are avid sneakerheads.

    Charlie Brigante- Take a guess, future gangsta rappers…

    One Armed Swordsmen- For rap groups inspired by Wu-Tang Clan.

    ConScience- For those who think “Resurrection” was the best album ever.

    I got more, but I ain’t gonna take up the whole comment section. A rap name is just as important as the rapper’s skill. Remember that kids.
