Top 10 Lyricists in Christian Hip Hop (2012 Edition)

The Wade-O Radio Team sat down to discuss the list of Top 10 current Lyricists in Christian Hip-Hop.

We compiled a list of artists and broke them down into five different categories: Boom Bap, Lyrical Theology, East Coast Street, Mainstream and Artistic.

Once we placed the artists into their respected categories, we then choose a certain number for each category and ranked each artist in that category. A point system was then placed on each chosen artist, in which the team, in their opinions, chose.

Below, you will find our original ballot.

Please Note:

  • After the results of our point system, we then divided each artist amongst the Team, and then debated about who are the top 10 lyricists. You can watch the Part 1 and Part 2 of our debate on our youtube channel
  • We tried to include artists who have been reasonably active during the past two years.
