Now, without further ado, here are the best K-pop rappers alive today!

Top 10 Male K-Pop Rappers

  1. Rap Monster, J-hope, and Suga (BTS)
  2. G-Dragon and TOP (Big Bang)
  3. Yongguk (BAP)
  4. Junhyung (BEAST/B2ST)
  5. Chanyeol (EXO)

Rap Monster, J-hope, & Suga (BTS)

1. Rap Monster, J-hope, and Suga (BTS)

Birthdays: September 12, 1994 (Rap Monster), February 18, 1994 (J-hope), March 9, 1993 (Suga)

If GD and TOP is the best rap duo, then Rap Monster, Suga, and J-hope is the best rap trio! They are the pride of BTS, which includes the best rapper lineup ever formed.

With Rap Monster is the most skilled, most talented, and most intelligent member of the trio. He can spit fire, creating and weaving together complex rhymes in a split second! When it comes to mind-blowing speed, clarity, and flow, he's the real deal.

J-hope is also a brilliant rapper. Aside from his musical talent, he is also bright and articulate. Rap Monster described him as a happy person. He said,“If I’m fire, J-Hope is water. He’s good at ‘turning off’ my bad habits."

On the other hand, Suga is more than just a sweet looking guy. When you hear him rap, you'll be amazed by his talent! Even J-hope acknowledges his cool rapping skills and composition. Because he’s in charge of fixing the things that Rap Monster breaks and disciplining the younger members when they make a mistakes, Suga acts as the father of BTS. In my opinion, the three of them have the best harmony in all of K-pop.

G-Dragon and TOP (Big Bang)

G-Dragon and TOP (Big Bang)

2. G-Dragon and TOP (Big Bang)

Birthdays: August 18, 1988 (G-Dragon), November 4, 1987 (TOP)

The best hip-hop duo in the history of K-pop music is none other than GD and TOP. GD, whose real name is Kwon Ji-yong, is not only a talented rapper, but also a brilliant songwriter. Choi Seung-hyun, our beloved TOP, is a naturally gifted rapper. They are members of the incredibly influential Korean pop group Big Bang.

G-Dragon is one of the best idol rappers because of his great flow, clear delivery, and versatility. Together with TOP, who is recognized for his low-bass timbre rapping, these two Big Bang idols are the perfect hip-hop duo! Because of their incredible talent and strong charisma, they both won awards at the 2011 Melon Music Awards in the rap and hip-hop category.

Yongguk (BAP)

Yongguk (BAP)

3. Yongguk (BAP)

Birthday: March 31, 1990

Bang Yong-guk, commonly known as Yongguk, was born for hip-hop. He is the rapper of the popular K-pop male group B.A.P. Before he became famous as an idol, he used to be a well-known underground rapper under the alias of "Jepp Blackman." He has an amazingly deep and emotional voice. His style is smooth, with great flow and nice rhythm.

Due to his huge influence and contribution to Korea's hip-hop music and culture, he is considered to be one of the best K-pop Idols. Besides rapping, he also acts as a songwriter and producer for many of B.A.P's songs.

Junhyung (BEAST/B2ST)

Junhyung (BEAST/B2ST)

4. Junhyung (BEAST/B2ST)

Birthday: December 19, 1989

Yong Jun-hyung, who is commonly known as Junhyung (and less commonly as Poppin' Dragon and Joker), raps in the boy group Beast. He is not only an amazing rapper, but he is also a wonderful songwriter. He is credited as the songwriter and composer for many of the rap lyrics on B2ST's songs. His natural talent for language and composition make his lyrics quite powerful. His rap style is beloved by fans because of how raw and honest it is. When he's rapping, you can tell that he's sincere.

Chanyeol (EXO)

Chanyeol (EXO)

5. Chanyeol (EXO)

Birthday: November 27, 1992

Another talented, but innocent looking, rapper is Park Chanyeol from the decade's bestselling K-pop group EXO. He can rap with incredible speed, which gives his lyrics a cool, bad boy feel. But, he doesn't just rap to look tough. In fact, his lyrics also go well with sad or lonely sounding melodies. (For example, listen to the song "Promise.") Not only can he rap, but Chanyeol is also an excellent songwriter, composer, host, and actor. (He took a supporting role in the South Korean film Salut d'Amour in 2015.)

Baro (B1A4)

Baro (B1A4)

6. Baro (B1A4)

Birthday: September 5, 1992

The main rapper of the colorful, sunny, and youthful K-pop boy group B1A4 is Cha Sun-woo, who's often referred to by his stage name Baro. He has a wonderfully masculine voice that perfectly meshes with his bandmates' smooth vocals—especially the high-pitched Sandeul and Jinyoung. (His manly voice is surprisingly similar to Big Bang's TOP.)

He may not be able to rap as fast as others', but his lyrics are always powerful. Besides being a powerful rapper, he can also sing a sweet ballad. When he's not rapping, he works as an actor, starring in such films as the drama God's Gift-14 Days (in which he played a mentally-ill teenager) and Reply 1994 (in which he played Kim Dong-jun).

Zico (Block B)

Zico (Block B)

7. Zico (Block B)

Birthday: September 14, 1992

While he seems like a cute, innocent boy idol, Woo Ji-ho (also known as Zico) of Block B is actually a very manly rapper. His rap style is what gives the group's songs the bad boy feel that made them famous. His flow is amazing! Even when he's performing speed rap, he can still maintain the rhythm. He has a smooth breathing technique, so he's able to rap on softer songs, as well. On top of being a rapper, he is also a producer of both K-pop and Korean hip-hop music.

Il-hoon (BTOB)

Il-hoon (BTOB)

8. Il-hoon (BTOB)

Birthday: October 4, 1994

Jung Il-hoon is one of the main rappers of the K-pop boy group BtoB. The group specializes in dance-pop, balladry, and R&B beats. Ilhoon's rap style perfectly meshes with the group. His words are clear, his diction sounds great, and his lyrics are deeply emotional. He is well known for working with Hyuna and G.NA. His cool rap blends well with the girls' hot and sexy voices. (I definitely appreciated the collaborations.) Aside from his work as a rapper, he has also hosted (as an assistant MC) the variety show Weekly Idol.

Mino (Winner)

Mino (Winner)

9. Mino (Winner)

Birthday: March 30, 1993

Song Min-ho, who is better known as Mino, is a rapper in the K-pop boy band Winner. He was also a member of the underground rap scene, where he performed with other rappers-turned-idols under the name "Mino" or "Hugeboy Mino." His stage presence is superb (so strong and confident). For example, just listen to his incredible performance on the song "I'm Him."

In December 2014, he collaborated with 2PM's Nichkhun, CNBLUE's Yonghwa, Infinite's L, and B1A4's Baro during a performance at the 2014 SBS Gayo Daejeon.

Ravi (VIXX)

Ravi (VIXX)

10. Ravi (VIXX)

Birthday: February 15, 1993

Ravi, whose real name is Kim Won-sik, is a rapper in the K-pop group VIXX. He is very talented and truly stands out from other K-pop rappers. His high-pitched voice is intense and aggressive. His voice hypes you up and makes you want to dance. His confidence is truly impressive.

In 2014, he collaborated with American artist Chad Future on the song "Rock the World," which appeared on Chad's first mini-album. (He also appeared in the music video for the single.) Besides rapping, he also writes and composes several of VIXX's songs.

Questions & Answers

Question: Why do Baro and Junhyung have 0% of the votes even though they're good rappers and are more experienced than BTS?

Answer: Maybe because BTS is so popular, and fans can't appreciate other talented rappers.

My ult group is bts and in MY opinion they're ONE of the best rappers in the industry. But don't go around saying that bts are only ranked high because of their popularity. Their skills are no joke. This isn't even an official ranking so don't get so offended. I agree that there are so many other rappers that need to be here but bts deserves the recognition they got in thIs article. Honestly, nobody can be number 1 because everyone has their own opinions and standards on defining who's the best. Ya'll just look dumb saying bts aren't even good at what they do best

Alea on August 12, 2020:

How could you forget Changbin? He is a better rapper than all of them!!

vani on July 21, 2020:

bts best rappers in asia period

최권세 on July 16, 2020:

I totally disagree this ranking. There are alot of better korean rappers then bewhy in show me the money. And why is bewhy not even in top 2? Dont base rapping skills base on strong fan base. Just because bts have alot of fan dosent mean the members are good in rapping.

Bharti Chouhan on July 13, 2020:

Suga best rapper

1234 on July 05, 2020:

I dont quite understand this list

Some of the rappers here have been in the industry longer yet they are at the lowest?

Also, you missed Bobby of iKON. He won SMTM and is currently the youngest and only idol rapper to win it and he isnt in this list?

I would understand and respect this list as a list you made based on biases. You missed alot of good rappers as well

Zhera on June 24, 2020:

Just because they are world wide famous doesn't mean you have to put them no.1 of course they are VERY good and one of the best but you have to judge them by their rap skills. Their fans *including me* may vote for them as the best but tbh i think Stray Kids' Changbin and other rappers deserves this too.

... on June 23, 2020:

rapping isnt who raps faster ok......

Kim on June 19, 2020:

Where's Bobby? Really ?

rica on June 18, 2020:

Why Infinite Dongwoo is not in the List. He has a husky, cool voice...

Kiyani on June 16, 2020:

Just telling you guys I know people are saying zico is the best rapper but clearly as you can see Rm and Zico had a rap battle and Rm won and Suga is better than rm bc he has better Rhythm and breath control when it comes to faster rapping...but when Zico and rm raps they don’t have that much of a good breathe control so yh...And I am not an army

mn on June 15, 2020:

So jinjin is not here .i can only say their bad . best underrated rap

STRAY KIDS on June 11, 2020:

The best rapper is CHANGBIN

Wang on June 10, 2020:

What ???? SKZ WHERE IT

Anonymous on June 03, 2020:

No offense but I think the bts rapper's are better but this is just my opinion but I admit the other are also good

หุง เฉวหัว่ร on June 02, 2020:

Rm is the best rapper in the group no one can do like that

alf on June 02, 2020:

God pls, you can't compare zico with idol rappers, its disrespectful

kim on May 29, 2020:

I knew this is wrong when i didnt see bobby name up there, hes literally one of the best rapper out there

karrotu anjali naidu on May 28, 2020:

i think mark and taeyong from NCT are the best rappers.

박 루민 on May 21, 2020:

All of you saying Zico can rap better than BTS! and yes that should be your opinion and we respect it but you should respect us too and BTS won doesn't mean everyone else is not good everyone has his favourite and we voted our favourite and so do you!please respect. and saying that's my opinion or i don't mean something bad after you said why BTS better?!

johnny on May 19, 2020:

all i'm going to say is, you guys are missing some people, and people aren't respecting the og's, like, gd and top, and also some of ya'll are disrespecting other idols with that "so and so and rap faster than this person" bull crap. who cares if they rap faster, it doesn't matter. it's just a silly poll so you shouldn't care that much, and go out of your way to say those things. all i'm going to say is respect all of their hard work and effort, and respect others too

neocitywrlds on May 19, 2020:

I'm sorry, but where is Mark Lee? he may not be able to rap as fast or anything but Mark Lee is an amazing rapper with such iconic lines.

Lee Taeyong should also be on this list.

also, Changbin from Stray Kids doesn't breathe. he deserves to be on this list.

Jooheon from MX should be on this list.

Person on May 19, 2020:

Why is han jisung not in this list!?

Shriya on May 16, 2020:

Guys how can you not add changbin of stray kids the whole world knows he is the best and fastest rapper have you not heard miroh and hellevator . Everyone in stray kids can rap .plus han jisung is the best freestyle rapper

Bts army on May 06, 2020:

Where is jungkook because he is rapper too so yeah

Jewel on May 05, 2020:

Yongguk and Zelo.People should stop sleeping on their talent.

They are gifted.

Heugsim on April 25, 2020:

Could you please not??!!! You actually placed someone(??) above G Dragon and TOP, like seriously, you can't even compare them with anyone else

Joonie on April 11, 2020:

RM bts is the best rapper in the world

Ayerill on April 06, 2020:

No offence but according to my perspective zico raps far better than bts

StanTalents on March 08, 2020:

Lol they afraid to add bobby's name cos their faves wont stand a chance lol







august d on March 02, 2020:

bless yall souls for voting for my little meow meow

#Army4life on February 27, 2020:

Suga is da best , will be da best and will always be da best (I am not disrespecting anyone I REPEAT I AM NOT so this is JUsT mY opinion)

jia on February 10, 2020:

i think some of these were kinda biased, and you just took some of the rappers from the more popular groups. you didn't really take the more underrated groups into account

Exo-l-Once-ReveLuv etc on January 22, 2020:

Omg Chanyeol is here?? I didn't know he ranked high considering everyone says he's a bad Rapper. I'm so happy!!

Really wish NCT rappers were here too;)

ianedl on December 27, 2019:

I respect your preferences but I do believe that there are a lot of idol rappers you failed to rank. Double B of iKON, Bobby and BI, has amazing rap clear skills too! Music quality, beat, rhythm, choice of words, they got it. They too produce and write their own songs. Then there's MONSTAX and the younger gen, Stray kids, T13.

Jj on December 19, 2019:

Okay I think Zico can rsp faster than the bts rappers (just my opinion pls respect)

Amelie on December 08, 2019:

I think that Jooheon and changkyun from Monsta X should have been on this list.

Emma on November 13, 2019:

Its pointless this so wrong on so many levels if we're talking about popularity than this poll is true but to talk about real raw talent you should reconsider your choices u tottaly forogt about jooheon he's so effing good and bobby he's so damn good too and to put rm suga and jhope above gd the king of kpop u r so wrong

YangYang on November 09, 2019:

But Zico can rap faster than BTS.

And where is Straykids and NCT?

Army on November 05, 2019:

You've made a big mistake. Where is bobby? The first kpop idol to win Show Me The Money

Lizzie on October 20, 2019:

Changbin, Han and Hyunjin should be on this list

devi on October 20, 2019:

a kpop rappers list without stray kids rapline on it is invalid

seoyeon on October 13, 2019:

lmao? this is the funniest list ive ever seen. chanyeol isnt anywhere near top 10. you forgot bobby who literally won show me the money, zico should be #1 easily, even hwiyoung could be here. obviously just a list for fangirls to squeal over their oppas

Kelly on October 12, 2019:

This list is invalid cause changbin’s not on it

Jeff on October 11, 2019:

so how bout sik-k ... loco ... zico ... ph-1 etc ... ? seeing bts in top 1 is like a joke

Scarlxrd on September 27, 2019:

Some of these little fangurls in the comment section be like "blah blah blah ShOuLD bE hIGhER tHan bts" stfu do u even know how many different flows they got. In every song they got bars bruh like cyphers can destroy the whole rappers career in kpop. Just sayin and before commenting shit kids go get educated. Ya'll imma boy and a soundcloud rapper who's well known bout what he sayin xD

Love rapping rappers on September 24, 2019:

From what i thinl there mist be NCT mark n taeyong also THEBOYZ sunwoo they r the best rappers i know i think they r better than BTS rappers u should include them instead of BTS people n guys try listening their rappings

Well everyone will have different likes

jaemin on September 23, 2019:

pft NO ONE in their right mind would agree to this. this list is a product of ignorance (the lack of knowledge of other rappers) and bias (toward rappers that shouldn’t even belong on this list or not top 10 at least)

melody_of_BTOB on September 11, 2019:

It's good to see Jung Ilhoon to be on the list but it would be better if there were Minhyuk and Peniel also. Try to make them a trio. That's a perfect harmony.

Hey on September 06, 2019:

You need to put Bobby on the list

....... on September 04, 2019:

what about changbin?

Bye on August 25, 2019:

I feel that Mark and Taeyong from NCT and Minji from Ateez should be on the list

eldrin on August 08, 2019:


Hi on August 08, 2019:

Changbin and Han deserve a place on this list at the very least

Baby bbaek on August 07, 2019:

Where is bobby???? Are you kidding???

잘저여 on July 30, 2019:

GD Suga j hope RM Top

Brahim kadi on July 27, 2019:

Lmao I'm tired with those kids who still think they re fav better then bts rap line or even close to be better then them y'all bitches still thinking rapping fasted without lyrics the most important thing end part in the hip hop indsuty * or jumping at the stage without control * or without flow end style end charisma * will make you the best rapper kids go end learn The basics end shut the fuck up

Sharmaine on July 25, 2019:

You forgot the double B. B.I and BOBBY \m/

Anon on July 11, 2019:

You forgot bobby and BI man

t h i c c on July 10, 2019:

our boys from 3racha did not spend 26/9 in front of a composing launchpad and laptop to not be one of the top rappers in Korea, sTaN sTrAy kiDs yOu uNcULtURed sWiNe

Kpop fan on July 05, 2019:

What about Changbin from Stray Kids? He spits fire every time he raps and raps idk how many lines in less than ten seconds

maryggch on June 28, 2019:

Ok people, Here is my list for best rappers


Second Generation: Gd and T.O.P

Thrid Generation: Exo Chanyeol and Sehun and Bts Rap Monster, J-hope and Suga

Forth Generation: Monsta X I.M and Jooheon, IKon B.I and Bobby, Stray Kids Changbin, Han, Hyunjin, Felix and Nct Taeyong and Mark

soft.gguk on June 25, 2019:

eye- you really got Suga, RM AND

J-hope up here but no Jooheon or Changkyun OR any stray kids rappers? like I get it Suga,RM and J-Hope are talented but the newer groups are starting to come out with FIRE rappers. Like with Changbin from Stray kids now in the game and Jooheon from Monsta x the rap industry is about to be destroyed by these boys and no one will ever see it coming:D

Kpoptrash on June 22, 2019:

Where is NCT...they have some good and fast Mark. There are a lot of groups that deserve to be up on this chart but I do agree with BTS as one, not just bc I Stan them but out of everyone on chart I do believe that suga and rm are a definite. So Is Jhope, but we do deserve some people from STRAYKIDS and even so NCT

Mel on June 21, 2019:

I agree with RM and Suga as #1. So much talent. But Stray Kids rap line should be there too... they're amazing !

Random person on June 16, 2019:

I do agree that stray kidz should have been before suga, Rm, and jhope, I mean dont get me wrong im a bts stan but tbh it doesnt matter bc talent is talent and deserves to be reconized. Like im not gonna sit there and say that the bts rap line should be first just bc i consider myself an army. But with that said it is nice to have someone you value given credit, but to run around saying they are better than everyone isnt right even if you are "just supporting them" (btw im a huge Suga stan so im not saying he's not talented)

emily on June 14, 2019:

bts is the best except that

NZ on June 10, 2019:

Bear it but BTS's rapline is the best and also multitalented

T on June 07, 2019:

PSA: being a good rapper doesn't just mean being able to rap really fast, there's flow, lyrical content and delivery as well. Mino should have been higher on this list and though Zico is not really considered an Idol rapper anymore he deserved the top spot. GD isn't also really considered an Idol rapper (more on Producer/Artist). And well Jooheon, Bobby and BI are missing from this list for some reason. And why is Ravi even in this list?

Multi stan on May 28, 2019:

All of stray kids rap line should be up here. I wont explain why just take a look at Maze of Memories.

E-X-O on May 27, 2019:


monbebe on May 16, 2019:

MONSTA X rapline is fire, JOOHEON and IM just kill the rap. They are the best rappers of all time!!!!

sue on May 08, 2019:

umm sweet suga the BEST rapper barirah your welcome

Yee haw on May 07, 2019:

Ummmm have you heard Changbin or Stray kidz in general. In my opinion they're the best rappers of this generation or of kpop

Starmyland on May 06, 2019:

I really love BTS' rapline, but there's this other group who actually in my opinion have literally the best rappers! Changbin and Jisung from Stray Kids are just insane! I'll be fighting with these boys! I know they can make it here one day! I still love BTS tho!!! They're just very unique and different and I really love that about them!

on April 17, 2019:

This has nothing to do with this list that much but ARMYs, please stop saying that Yoongi should be in all the lists of "top 10 fastest rappers in the world" that people create because there's a lot of rappers that are faster than him. Don't get me wrong, I love Yoongi and his rapping and he's really skilled but not one of the FASTEST rappers. The person with the nickname "I AM OFFENDED-" in the comments is 100% right.

JHHHHHHHO LINA on April 15, 2019:


barirah on April 15, 2019:

for me suga is a good rapper but I love chanyeol

drag on April 12, 2019:

imagine putting Chanyeol on the rankings while ignoring Changbin and Jisung

TaennieVBTS on April 12, 2019:


Kpopper on April 10, 2019:

But how can you forget NCT's Taeyong and Mark...No one can deny how good they are...Especially Taeyong, for me

I AM OFFENDED- on April 08, 2019:

i get that you guys are huge ass bts fans and stuff but make sure that other artists get some of the recognition and appreciation. im a bts stan, (but wouldnt consider myself an army) but i dont think bts rapline deserves #1 in this list. imo zico should be higher, jooheon and im from mx should be somewhere on this list, changbin from sk should be on here, outsider should be on here. people should vote based on talent and not popularity bc their "oppa needs to be #1 for all the work they did." rapping shouldnt be based on how good the song sounds, it should be based on how the flow of the rap is going, the rhythm, the meaning of the lyrics, etc. im not saying that the other rappers have no flow or meaningful lyrics, im saying that there are rappers out there who would fit the higher ranks better than the ones listed here. im sorry for being salty, but im just stating some facts.

katelynn on April 08, 2019:

Idk why they're talking about rm rapping fast when suga can rap 11.4 syllables per second.

Aya on April 05, 2019:

changbin is missing. he’s so short he didn’t even make the list

vilerieday8 on April 04, 2019:

Ouups you didnt put Jooheon monsta x and changbin stray kids they will rangking no1 if by their talent not by bias or group you like eventhough im army but these two people in no1 they are very talented rapper# stand talent

Angela on April 03, 2019:

Stray Kids must be on this list as number 1. They have the best rapline and all of them can rap. Changbin has the same speed as BTS's Suga. Also there is Han, Hyunjin, and Felix.

changbin??? on April 02, 2019:

Changbin from Stray Kids???

He’s tied 2nd with Yoongi for fastest rapper??

G DRAGON on March 31, 2019:


Kpop on March 30, 2019:

Geez, why chanyeol is only in #5?I mean duh, he rapped can rapped the freakin Loner by Outsider!! And why the hell BTS members are in the 1!?there are so many underrated rappers out there, and bobby!?he raps so good! I cant believe this! Its not about the freakin popularity geez! I admit BTS are good, but that doesnt mean they are always in the top. Duh.

Janz on March 19, 2019:

U forgot Jooheon of Monsta X

Tt on March 18, 2019:

I’m an army but even I won’t accept this rankings bi and Bobby deserves to be in the lineup also mark from nct

Rap technique vice GD and TOP are surely higher than bts

If I ever to give a honest ranking BTS would be 3rd while Bigbang being first and Zico being 2nd

Don’t be too blinded by visuals and over ratings when making rankings

tf is this article on March 18, 2019:

im sorry but why isnt Changbin in this list? He's literally the 2nd (tied with Yoongi) fastest rapper in Korea, he spits fire and can rap a song without even practicing (did it at weekly idol)

Suga93 on March 16, 2019:

Suga is the most talented rapper in these days. He is not just a rapper. He is a singer so give respect to him and stop talking about GD and Bobby. I love Bobby's raps but Suga has the best lyrics, flows. Also he is faster than these two. i respect them but give more respect to Suga and stop talking about your bias... I know you'll say that im biased but..i know when someone deserve to be number 1.

All the other rappers are good too.

Suga93 on March 16, 2019:

BTS rapline is number 1 because Suga, Rap Monster and J-hope inproved their raps skills. For example:

Suga wasn't the best rapper back in 2013. For me now he is the best rapper in South Korea. If you haven't listened to Agust D - The last , Agust D - Give it to me or Agust D - "Agust D"...check it out. Also J-hope wasn't really good rapper but now..he is an animal. And don't think that they are the best rapline because they are the most famous group in the world. Its all just skills.

Sorry for my english.

Rose Kida on March 11, 2019:

Where Jooheon and I.M?

Monsta X have one of the best rap lines in K-pop, for sure

em on March 06, 2019:

sorry but STRAY KIDS rapline should be number 1

stan bts on March 03, 2019:

*open website* oooh whos first*silently hope for BTS to be first* first thing i see * BTS * me * flips desk and yells PeAcE OuT HaTeRs hE GoT FiRsT

Alysha Mae Gelvosa on March 02, 2019:

How about Monsta X's Jooheon?

jesus christ on February 28, 2019:

this list is terrible.

it sounds you barely know anything about rap. BTS has a good rapline, but firstly they're of different levels of skill amongst themselves. you can't just lump them all together especially when this is a "list" looking at individual rappers. rap monster and suga are better and recognised by the underground community, whereas j-hope ('skilled' as he is) is not.

you've completely missed out on some of the more respected rappers like iKON's bobby (and bi.i), and monsta x's jooheon and i.m. the fact that chanyeol is there and they are not is an atrocity itself. exo's been notorious for having the standard 'idol rapper' skills. namely, nothing special other than slightly faster than average speed or an interesting vocal tone.

the khiphop community recognise mino, bobby, and zico as some of the best currently promoting idol rappers (zico is no longer considered an idol per se, he's an artiste and a producer and highly respected and deserves the top spot.)

this is just incredibly biased. even ignoring and omitting the rappers you've missed out, g-dragon and top are legends. doom dada is one of the most impressive mixtapes/solos ever released by an idol rapper, and gdragon's production skills and language play is similarly incredible.

i understand that BTS is popular, but popularity is not testament to skill. i'm guessing you're some blindsided army.
