There are rappers and there are fast rappers. Rapping fast isn’t a legacy of a few, there can be many homemade YouTube videos you may have come across, which will have rappers rapping breathlessly, but then, you cannot find each one of them and list them out (practically, not very possible). We have here compiled a list of 10 fastest rappers ever. These are rappers who signed to a record label or appeared on official album. There may be some talented rappers that we may have missed out (add them in your comments) but that would be entirely because of inconsistency or below par skills to fit the list.
