The 10 Best Conscious Rappers Of All-Time
Conscious Rap is a sub-genre of hip-hop that focuses on creating awareness and imparting knowledge. Conscious rap is propelled by the conviction that radical social change comes through knowledge of self and personal discovery.
So what exactly makes for a good conscious rapper? Is it life experience, message, relevance? I think it has to be a combination of all three. While some of you might disagree with my choice of placing 2pac at the top of the list of Conscious Rappers, especially since he made some violent songs. You cannot deny Pac’s talent, impact and positive messages that can be found on all of his albums.
- Mos Def
- Lupe Fiasco
- The Roots
- Immortal Technique
- Talib Kweli
This is a Solid List
I’d replace Immortal Technique with Lowkey, unless this list doesn’t include UK rappers.
