Struggle Rap Forefathers: The 10 Wackest Rappers Of The 1990s


If Hip-Hop fans are honest, they can admit the 1990s was a time of both innovation and supreme levels of struggle rap before the term was coined. Although it was the decade that gave us classics from Public Enemy, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan, among many others, there were plenty of other acts that should have saved their studio time – and also the ears of suffering listeners.

To be fair, calling a rapper wack is sort of a cheap shot and really depends on personal tastes. However, we’re pretty certain that there is an undeniable truth to the fact that there are some “MCs” who should have chosen another profession.

Hip-Hop Wired takes a look back in time and lists 10 of the wackest rappers of the 1990s on the following pages. Did we miss anyone? Please let us know in the comments.

  • Puff,Amil,Trina,Young MC,Hammer.

  • Hmmm

    Why is MC Brains not on this list?!

  • This isn’t a very inspired, well-thought list. It’s basically an exercise in picking on white guys and southern rappers – seems as if it was thrown together in 5 minutes.

    • Kreole

      Ikr? Its actually a anti No Limit/Cash Money/Wack white rappers list. Smh

  • Diddy and Vanilla Ice are worst than Fred Durst.
