The most popular rappers in the world
The Ranker website has compiled the list of the most popular male rappers in the world judging by people’s votes. While the list is pretty much subjectively created on regards of what people enjoy to listen to, many agree that the people in it have indeed become the best and the most famous rappers in the entire world. We are going to mention five of them:
- Fifth place is held by 50 Cent whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III and who is also a songwriter, actor, TV producer, entrepreneur, and investor. He came to prominence after being discovered by Eminem and after signing with Shady Records;
- Dre – whose real name is Andre Romelle Young – is in fourth place, and is a record producer and an entrepreneur as well, currently the third richest person in the hip hop industry, as his net worth has been estimated to be more than $770 million;
- In third place is Snoop Dogg (Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) – he was discovered by Dr. Dre and was featured in his first album “Deep Cover”. Since the launch of his career, Snoop Dogg has sold more than 23 million albums just in the US, and has been given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame;
- Second place goes to Kendrick Lamar who is considered to be the best rapper of his generation – he launched his career while he was still a teen and became popular after the release of his major label debut album entitled “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” which was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (IRAA);
- Top place goes to Eminem (Marshall Bruce Mathers III), who is also a record producer, record executive, film producer, and an actor. He has been given the title of King of Hip Hop, and is also popular from starring in the “8 Mile” movie, which follows his early life.
