  • YourYG Bias

    I’ll just quote that last bit of the SB article. “Damn who made this chart?” 

    Damn right. Who did, because BS is popping up from all positions. 

    Yubin’s too low, HyunA’s too high, a few people should be nudged up slightly and someone *cough*JB*cough* was placed in the wrong ranking chart. There was a fair amount of butt-hurtedness about Zico taking the top spot but it all comes down to personal preference. Which just goes to show how these rankings are influenced by external factors and should be considered with an open mind and no rabid fangirl in sight.

    My OP: T.O.P should have taken top and Epik High right alongside him. Though, they border the line of what people would consider idol, but meh.

    Seriously, some people shouldn’t even be ON the list (helloooooo Chansung, Taecyeon, Minho, Hyuna).

    But I’m glad that people are recognizing Chanyeol’s skill. Boy’s seriously the best rapper SM has ever debuted, and even though that’s not really saying much, he has legit potential. If SM can give Key and Minho rap tracks in SHINee’s albums, I hope they give Chanyeol a solo track or even just a solo stage in EXO’s concerts in a couple of years or so.

    My biggest pet peeve about idol “rapping” is that it is painfully obvious that, in most cases, the member that doesn’t have much singing ability gets designated the rapping position. This isn’t always the case (I may not always be particularly impressed by his wordplay, but at least GD seems to have genuine love for hip hop), but in most instances the rapping is just a break in the song that barely has a rhyme scheme — or if it does, it’s often less than stellar. 

    I get the sense idols love the hip hop culture, but it often feels like they don’t understand the artistry that can come from clever wordplay and diverse rhyming techniques. There is an artistry that comes from flow, from line breaks, from clever pop culture references tossed in at the right time, when done correctly. The best rappers respect the complexity of hip hop as an art form — cats like Black Thought, KRS-One, Nas, Immortal Technique and Rakim. Rap when done with intelligence is not just poetry in motion — it’s flo-etry in motion. I wish I saw this same pride in craftsmanship, so to speak, from idols.

    There are a couple of idol rappers that do impress me. I wasn’t at all surprised that Tiger JK wanted to work with Yubin. She just has that presence, and that voice. The first time I heard her rap, I thought she had shades of T (though not quite on that same level, lyrically — but who is?). Also, I agree that T.O.P. is superior to GD, though not quite as popular. However, there are also DOZENS of names on that list that make me want to transform into a hermit crab so I can crawl up into that shell and hide from the noise.

    Bora; great looking girl. I admire her for having a more realistic figure than most in Kpop. She looks healthy, and seems to be easygoing. Excellent. But every time she “raps,” I have to fight the urge to stick a sharpie through my f*cking ears. That’s not rapping, it’s talking with a vague rhyme to it (and even that isn’t always a given). She is hardly alone in that category of rappers in idoldom, though (more talkers, than rappers).

    If I made a list, TOP would be up there with Zico, GD would be lower, Yubin would be on the damn list, and maybe a few others — the rest would fall off into a chasm. 

    Then if I compared that list to hip hop overall in Korea, the idols would be on the 4th (maybe 3rd) tier compared to artists like Tiger JK, Epik High, Dynamic Duo, Leessang and so on.

    • csh1987

      I agree with most of your post but I would argue that TOP is just as popular as GD. He’s just not popular for his musical contribution because that’s not what YG markets him as.Each BigBang member is marketed quite specifically and TOP is branded as an actor/model/sofuckinghot.

      It avoids overlap with GD’s marketing (because how do you successfully market two rappers/producers/writers/composers from the same group) and widens TOP’s appeal to a larger demogrpahic. And YG has made a lot of money by doing this. The downside is that nobody really thinks of TOP as a songwriter. So, when articles come out about royalties for example, GD and Junhyung are always mentioned but TOP easily makes more than Junhyung does from royalties. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nate-Broadus/100003245734823 Nate Broadus

        I meant specifically that he isn’t as popular musically — which is humorous since he is a better rapper than GD. As for the marketing, since everything is tied into the group over the individual in Kpop (apart from solo artists), I agree. Though it does TOP a disservice since he should be recognized more for his talents, regardless of how it effects GD. This is one reason for my distaste of idol marketing — too many genuinely talented and creative minds tend to get shoved aside, even if they have the ability to be more than a role player, all in the name of pushing a certain member. 

        It may be effective in the Korean market, but it is still a very lazy way to push your roster and set it up for success. In my experience, you find your employees do more inspired and successful work when they feel their boss has their aspirations in mind as individuals, not just as part of a larger group. 

        • csh1987

          I agree that it’s a disservice to TOP because imo he’s not just the better rapper but also the better songwriter. However, his music is not always as radio-friendly as GD’s, so yg’s decision makes sense from a monetary stand-point. That’s just how it goes, unfortunate though it may be.

          However, I do think YG has done something with Bigbang others do very poortly (including YG himself with 2ne1) and that’s successfully marketing each member solo. Each member has a specific niche and cache and that will probably give them longer careers (as solo artists, producers, actors, entertainers etc.) after the group disbands.

          I don’t see any other popular group atm where every member has a solid chance at success post-disbandment.

  • Black_Plague

    I can’t even consider Chansung, Taecyeon, Hyuna, Yunho, Shindong and Hyuna as rappers at all, even if I were paid to do so. They’re more like fast-rythmic-talkers. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the people on the list were actually put as ‘rappers’ because they couldn’t even pass off as sub-vocalists.

     I’m also astounded to see Miryo and Bang Yong-guk even lower than GD. Seriously? And who on earth put Nicole in the list? Actually scrap that. That list needs to be destroyed.

    • JammySmoochie

    “he can talk-sing with a tempo in a pitch that will eventually be autotuned to sound tolerable” – LOL, that made my day. Unfortunatelly, it´s also a description that I would use for many other idol “rappers” (and if you skip the “talk” part it would also fit to many idol “singers” … but we love them anyway :-))

  • http://thankgyuu.tumblr.com/ Mrs_KimSungGyu

    I only agree with Zico being on top. The rest is terribly put together. I’ll leave out the most obvious ones, but contrary to what the writers said, I don’t agree with Baro being so high up. Or at least if he is going to be there then Dongwoo should be put there as well because skill-wise Dongwoo has better flow and variation (which isn’t always shown in their songs due to mismatch, much to my dismay). He’s also written every one of his raps (Hoya as well), and they’re actually pretty darn good. Hopefully people will acknowlege him more when Infinite H releases their album, but in the mean time people should listen to his rap in Baby Soul and Yoo Jia’s “She’s a flirt” to get an idea of what his potential is. He’s already good, but this guy has a good shot at becoming something even greater. Oh, also the fan cam of Infinite H’s unreleased song “Without You” which was produced by Primary and Zion T. should be on YouTube somewhere. It’s really quite excellent.

  • Chocho268

    Honestly, most idol’s rapping sucks and I think most people realize that. That chart is clearly based more on popularity than on anything else and shouldn’t be taken seriously. Netizens just love ranking idols according to every possible criteria they can think of.

    Personally, I would divide idol rappers into two groups-those whose rapping is still tolerable or even pleasant to the ears(we all know who they are) and those who just need to shut up (Sorry Nicole, Bora… I like you but please…just stop)

    • http://twitter.com/M_Wys Michaela Wylie

      Lol, this is kind of true. XD

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/M3A5VXTZXZOEH62VXL4FJ7AT7Q Xinran

    Personal preferences aside, I’m finally convinced (for now at least) that zico deserves the top spot. I’ve always ranked miryo at the top as far as rapping in  kpop is concerned and at a certain point in time i thought that zico’s skills didn’t quite live up to the hype that the most avid of fans have created. But having just gone through zico’s new mixtape tracks, im pretty much certain that the guy deserves the first position in rap this time. I’m still tempted to have miryo take the crown since she’s the most experienced in the game, but she’s hasn’t released much individual work that was noteworthy in the past few years (no, not even her solo album) while zico has shown a lot of progress from the first official mixtape to the current one, so I would say she’s close behind for now.

    I also wish that kyung would stop being ok with hiding in zico’s shadow all the time; even though he’s the standout rapper in a good number of tracks on the recent block b album, he seriously lacks an individual discography. For me he’s the exemplification of how you don’t need to have a deep voice or to use any speed-rapping tricks to be a good rapper (which tend to be the go-to criteria for rapping for a large number of kpop fans); he does just fine with his characteristic witty and snarky raps along with good enunciation and  flow.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/M3A5VXTZXZOEH62VXL4FJ7AT7Q Xinran

    @gaya: I don’t think it’s that surprising for members of more recent idol groups to take the higher positions, e.g. zico, kyung, BYG because even though they’re new to the idol game, they are not entirely newbies at rapping. And tbh regardless of who is at the top, this chart  still remains biased so as long as the talent is evident enough bias is really a non-issue.

  • http://piggy68gal.tumbr.com/ piggy68gal

    I am okay with the chart. I don’t think it was ever meant to be taken seriously…
    Anyway I personally feel that Hwayoung is a pretty decent rapper. I actually really like her tone. Go listen to that rap clip she released, and I think it shows that she has potential.

  • happy_slip

    This chart should have like, 7 tiers. The 4th tier is the messiest. Zinger and HyunA should exchange places. CL should be “close” with Yubin as far as impressing senior/non-idol rappers/performers go (since Tasha did compliment CL’s skill once if that counts), and not Jia. Minzy and Jia should be the one grouped together if anything. 

    Kinda sucks that 2NE1 rarely incorporates “rapping” in their songs now because some people are starting to somewhat forget that the designated rappers there can really impress if encouraged. Still waiting for the day CL does a “the leaders”  or even “What” rap break in one of 2NE1’s future albums. I like CL’s way of writing her own raps so far. It might not be lyrically impressive as what legit rappers write, but she does have great moments when she’s into it.

  • farisa

    This ranking is way off!!! Zelo should definitely have ranked higher and Hyuna is too high. Does JB even count(no offense he’s a good singer). Mir should be higher, Hoya(Infinite) should be on the list. Baro should be higher too, he’s really good at freestyling and writing lyrics. I feel Zinger is awesome, but ranked a little too high. CL should be up there with the guys just because of her aura and badness! (meant in a good way). I haven’t really seen a lot of rapping from Wonder Girls’ HyeLim. I think of Minzy as more of an epic dancer than a rapper. Overall the ranking is just not fair, I don’t understand what the standard was for evaluation of these amazing idols. 

  • lokifairy

    Since Hyuna is in the 3rd tie on this list it became irrelevant

  • http://twitter.com/PhanTheHotness Jenny

    i guess i agree with zico. though i think his rapping is sometimes just nonsense words, but he is pretty fantastic. 
    if i were to do it, i would put junhyung as 2nd tier along with gd, top, miryo, bang yong guk, and kyung.- because these people write their own raps and execute it flawlessly
    3rd tier would be chanyeol, hoya, dongwoo,cl -mainly because while i don’t think these 3 write any of the raps, they have a lot of flow

    and then the rest would be muddled somewhere

    • http://thankgyuu.tumblr.com/ Mrs_KimSungGyu

    Again k-netizen show their faggotry with this “mai popular oppa chart”
    Only rappers should be on top tier are Tablo and TOP (GD can compose many good songs but his rap is mediocre).
    Also, just because the lili mumbo (or whatever its name) MV is fun and enjoyable doesn’t bring Zico to the top instantly.

    • BasilWinchesterTheThird

      Do you really think he’s on top of that list because of Nilili Mambo? Really? You should do some research before you make an asinine comment like this. He’s on top of the list of the best idol rappers (so Tablo doesn’t really count ’cause you know, he’s not an idol) because he has made several great mixtapes pre and post debut, writes good lyrics and has good flow that keeps getting better and better. He is constantly improving and the pre-releases from his new mixtape are pretty much amazing and his work for the new Block B album is solid. So no, I don’t think he deserves that spot because he’s my “oppa” or bias or whatever-the-fuck  people call idols they blindly obsess over these days, he deserves that spot for being damn good.

      As for the rest of the chart, I agree that some of the people shouldn’t even be on there and some are misplaced. GD, BYG, Kyung and T.O.P are fine where they are and Miryo should be 2nd tier. 3rd: Junghyun, CL, P.O.

      The rest…Meh.

Zico did not get his spot instantly for his short nillili mambo verses; even disregarding his mixtapes, rap tracks like ‘lol’ and ‘no joke’ are enough to place him near the top

I didn’t bother to get offended by the others because I don’t care for them. Except, Mir should have totally been on the list too (and higher than Yunho).

    You guys can nitpick all you want but I think there’s a bigger picture to look at here. Being so bottom-heavy with very few outliers, the shape of the list is a perfect representation of the incredibly uneven talent distribution amongst idol rappers. It says loudly, ‘we need some real rappers over here!’, a statement that, in the context of K-pop, couldn’t possibly be any more accurate.

  • sakurahae

    This chart is kinda hilarious, but seeing all these idol rappers up there I’d totally love to throw some of these rappers in a studio, tell them to give me enough tracks to make an album and see what they come up with.

    Namely G-D and TOP, BYG and Zelo, The three Block B boys, Zico, Kyung, and P.O., and then Junhyung. Gives us a decent mix of voices and styles and a fair few of them write. 

    IDK. if you guys could pick some Idols rappers to throw in a studio for a while, who would you choose?

    • http://twitter.com/M_Wys Michaela Wylie

      It would be like the idol edition of The Movement Crew, just not as awesome… :P

        Its hard to rate BYG because BAP has yet to prove themselves. And although some people diss CL’s rapping, I personally like her tone and flow a lot

        • http://twitter.com/fah2ma Fatouma

           I think BYG has proven himself as a much better rapper than CL with his work with Soul Connection under the name Jepp Blackman, and the rest of his pre-debut material. He’s a very strong lyricist as well and has much stronger and hard-hitting flow than CL does. It could be preference, but I see a lot more skill and finesse coming from BYG than I do CL. Personally, I prefer CL singing than her rapping, but then again that’s just me.

    The only ranking that I totally agree with is Zico. Everyone at or above the line are ranked properly, but I think T.O.P should be above GD. If HyunA’s even going to be on the list then she should be much lower on the list. 

    Anyway, it’s shame that most idol “rappers” can’t really rap. They usually have very basic or no technique, and can’t even freestyle. It’s pretty obvious that the “rapper” title is usually just given to the weakest group members. But being called a rapper doesn’t automatically make you one.

       Being underground doesn’t necessarily make u a good rapper. You have to judge based on the tracks that each person has put out and their skills. Looking at Top’s discography in the past few years, he really didn’t do anything impressive as far as rapping is concerned. And this is an idol chart; that’s why tablo, mithra, leesang etc are not on here.

    Rappers I agree with (not for ranking): Zico, G-Dragon, Bang Yong Guk, Miryo, TOP, Amber, MiR, JunHyung, Bora, Jia, Yubin and HwaYoung.
    Rapers who I questioned why they’re there: CL (I’m sorry but nowadays she’s singing more), HyunA (same reason as CL but sounds more like a chipmunk), and JB (I love him but wtf why is he there???) 
    Rapers whom I disagree with: Minzy (I see her more as a dancer), Lim (idk why she’s there) and Changmin (I wasn’t to thrilled about it. He’s kind of like Lim) 
    Rappers whom I’m disappointed to not see in the list: Yoon Mi Rae/Tasha, Dynamic Duo, Tiger JK, U-KISS (yes I’m a KissMe; most likely either AJ or Dongho), Kahi (I don’t care if she’s not in After School anymore, she can rap), Baby J, Tablo, Eric and Jay Park (hey that’s just me)

    This chart makes me think about what a “real rapper” or “hip-hop artist” is. Well i don’t know some of the artists on here but when it comes to hip-hop or rapping, i have only Bang, Zico, Kyung and GD in my mind. They write their own lyrics, Zico  Kyung and Bang are decent at freestyle (never heard GD freestylin), they compose music and they got swag :) To me, anything below that is not considered as rapper. Just cause they can’t sing well enough, or there’s already a lead vocal in the group, they get the rapper role which is, let’s be honest not alway a good idea. I was into 2pm some time ago till Jay was in the group but i srsly couldn’t stand, not even then, when Chansung or Taec started their “rap” or let me call it “part of the song”. It always sounded off to me in every single release and it never changed :/
    Uhhh let’s see i like CL… Honestly, the way she’s killin it makes me groooovin’ :D The fact she sings nowadays…so wut lol she can sing too. I prefer her rap tho~ I agree with that position! Hyuna ehh~ Why on Earth is she even on the list? O_o Shes hot, dance well but definitly not a rapper. And i won’t accept Junhyung as a rapper either. He can pull off a nice flow with given lyrics and beat after some practice,in a Beast song but that’s it. As a solo artist, i rly can’t picture him. T.O.P, agree with the position, he’s got swag and a rly uniqe style, also he has a lot of expirience and a nice solo jet floating. Zelo, i hope Yongguk helps him grow in terms of music cause for now i’m not even impressed with what he has at the age of 16. I was aaalll about him when warrior and power came out but B.A.P doesn’t release songs nowadays Zelo can shine his talents in. Those talents that  need to b polished or else he’s just goin to b like Chan and Taec no offense. It feels like he’s just not improving~ I hope Bang helps him. Last but not least i have no clue why is Mir and Minho in the bottom ranch??? Like HELLO? To me it looks like ppl made this based on who they favor not on how good of a rapper they are :/

  • http://www.facebook.com/katy.ripley.7 Katy Ripley

    I disagree with everyone on Hyuna, I think she deservees third tier ranking because of this one video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSLm_1uaFEg. For me this proved that she wasn’t just a sexy-talker.

    Also, I know they hadn’t debuted before but now someone needs to make a new rank and put LE (EXID) and Feeldog (BIGSTAR) way up near the top. This song just is sooo full of excellently rapping. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk9YmgW1aMc I heard they were both underground rappers before joining groups.

    Finally some of the rappers from GLAM. They’re pretty good and great examples that you don’t need to have a low voice to be a good rapper. (Hwayoung was good for me as well)
