This is the section where you brag about doing poorly because (choose one):

  • a) Modern music is terrible. Real music died in 1963, 1973, 1983, or 1993 depending on your age.

  • b) These aren't real rappers because they are too popular.

Modern Music is terrible! If it wasn’t composed by Apollo on a Lyre before 300 B.C then it’s not worth listening to!

Seriously, Post Malone could use a shave, haircut, a gas-fired pressure washer and delousing.

to be fair, even I think a few of these aren't real rappers. I look at it like this. In the 90s/00s we had big dog rappers. In the 2010s we have chihuahua rappers. Thats the comparison.

...or because it's a crime not to have Tupac or Notorious B.I.G. or whoever else on a quiz about famous rappers. ;)

But seriously, it's very difficult/impossible to find good public domain or creative commons pictures from before cell phone cameras were a thing.

a)

Ten out of twenty. Not sure if we get all of those guys, or at least as much of them, over the pond, but I did recognise most names. The middle two on the penultimate line and the very last dude, I have never even heard of.

You aren't missing much. Post Malone made the genius move (and I can't believe no one had thought of this rhyme before) and rhymed "rockstar" with "rockstar" somewhere like 60 times in one song.

At least 5 of these shouldn't be considered rappers. Specially in a quiz when you could choose from thousands of genuine rappers.

Nicki Minaj is one of the best lyricists of the 2010s. Maybe get acquainted with her work other than Anaconda and Starships, and you'll see. Personally, I recommend you to listen to her feature on Monster, by Kanye, Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Bon Iver, where she has the most memorable verse while still being a rookie rapper. Other than that, just remove your head from your derrière; it's not a hat.

These are some of the most famous rappers of all-time. I do think it could use some less obvious choices, but I don't think "who are these people" is a legitimate criticism of this quiz.

Given my overall taste in music doesn't include rap, and that it is also a genre i don't focus on in knowlegde about music....i'm pretty pleased that i scored 9 out of 20. :P

I knew most of these, but some (like LL Cool J and Wiz Khalifa) I couldn't tell from the pictures. But why is Post Malone on here and not someone like Kendrick Lamar? Posty is not a rapper recognized by ANYONE who actually listens to rap.

I did pretty good.18/20. But man, that Missy Elliot picture looks nothing like I remember her. That picture makes her look like an airbrushed Kerry Washington. Also, Wiz Khalifa straight up looks like a cross between Dave Chappelle and Sanka Coffie from Cool Runnings in that picture.
