My Favourite Idol Rappers

With popular rap survival shows, “Show Me The Money” and “Unpretty Rapstar” gaining popularity, idol rappers have become a hot topic. Idol rappers are often stigmatized because of their connections to rich and powerful entertainment agencies, their large fanbase and sometimes, their lack of skill compared to underground rappers.

These days, almost all KPOP songs feature a rap portion and are performed by idols that just talk quickly with no true potential, talent or knowledge of hip-hop, and its history. Rather than name these “fake idol rappers”, I decided to list the idol rappers that have shown true potential and talent in hip-hop and rap. Some of these idols have appeared and made their mark on rap survival shows, proving their abilities to fans worldwide and even to underground rappers that once stigmatized them. This list is my personal list, so you may agree or disagree with me. It is all my opinion.
