Everyone loves that one guy who just blazes up the track when he raps so fast it seems like he’s speaking a different language. Well here at the ESP, we are going to take a look at the fastest rappers in the game. And I’m talking about proven rappers, not this or this. While they are cool and give you a laugh every now and then, they aren’t really serious and might not even be real. With that being said, check below for the countdown on the ten fastest rappers in hip-hop today.

10: Cory Gunz
Fastest Tracks: 6 Foot 7 Foot, A Milli (Remix)
The YMCMB new signee has showcased his wicked fast flow on a few occasions before. Mainly on his mentor, Lil Wayne’s songs. I realize both of the tracks are on someone elses songs, but hey, that’s why he is number ten. Well known for his killer guest appearance on the Lil Wayne’s single, 6 Foot 7 Foot. Also his verse on the remix to A Milli is crazy, so listen to that here (starts at 1:10). With the release of his new mixtape, Son of a Gun and guest apperance from artists such as Juicy J, Meek Mill and Schoolboy Q, he is on the right track towards success.

9: Machine Gun Kelly
Fastest Tracks: Salute, Chip Off the Block, I Know, Midwest Side
Known for his monster flow, the Cleveland representative is on the top of his game. While he might not have the fastest flow I’ve ever seen, at points in his songs he really just whips it out and shows how great of an emcee he can be. He has the ability to maintain it for full songs, while most artists can’t do it for a verse. Side note: he has a new mixtape titled Young & Reckless coming out by the end of summer.

Machine Gun Kelly – Salute

8: Emilio Rojas
Fastest Tracks: Turn It Up, Hold You Down (Remix)
The Venezuelan-American from New York City has one of the most impressive flow of an up an coming artist in the entire game. At some points he really just speeds it up so fast it makes you just step back and listen. On the Hold You Down (Remix), Emilio drops one of my favorite verses of the entire year. Yeah, he’s that good.
Laws – Hold You Down (Remix) [feat. Emilio Rojas & Big K.R.I.T.]

Emilio Rojas – Turn It Up (feat. Yelawolf)

7: Yelawolf
Fastest Tracks: Pop the Trunk, Worldwide Choppers, Good to Go, Let’s Go, Lemonade Freestyle
The Alabama spitter is known for his snake-like tongue and flow. He managed to get down south legend Bun B to drop a verse on Good to Go and he actually gets embarrassed by Yela’s first verse, it straight goes. And then Yelawolf completely bodies Gucci Mane’s Lemonade. On a side note I love how everyone who has rapped over Lemonade has killed it, except for Gucci.
Yelawolf – Lemonade Freestyle

Yelawolf – Good to Go (feat. Bun B)

6: NoClue
Fastest Tracks: New West, Movement, West Coast
I’ll admit it, I had never heard of NoClue until I started this list. Many people haven’t heard of him, but if you have the only reason is because of his flow. He is one of those rappers that has an insane flow, but if he tries to slow it down, it just sucks. I really could have just put any of his songs in the Fastest Tracks section, so I just put his most popular. He reps Seattle and holds the title of the world’s official “fastest rap MC” by the Guinness World Records, for rapping 723 syllables in 41.27 seconds (17.51 syllables per second). All I can say is wow.
NoClue – Get Off Me

NoClue – Movement (feat. Realistik)

5: Tonedeff
Fastest Tracks: Velocity, Champions
The rappers from Queens is known for his breathless vocal performances, rapid-fire delivery, which is alleged to be among the fastest in hip hop history, is said by critics as having “the best flows” of the current generation of emcees. He has also opened for a variety of artists such as Common and Royce da 5’9″. Just take a listen to the two tracks below and you’ll see why the critics said he has the best flow of the current generation of rap artists. He doesn’t really speed up on Champions until around the 53 sec mark btw.

4: Krayzie Bone
Fastest Tracks: Flow Motion, AK-47/Heated Heavy
To be honest, half of this list could have been composed up of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony members. But where would the fun be in that. Krayzie Bone is probably the fastest of the entire group, hence why he is on this list. He constantly drops rapid-fire verses in his and the groups songs to much joy to the fans. Soundcloud lacks any and every Krayzie Bone song, so I threw up an mix of his best verses below. I realize it is nine minutes long, but all of it is straight fire.

3: Busta Rhymes
Fastest Track: Break Ya Neck, Look At Me Now, All I Do is Win (Remix), Worldwide Choppers, Let’s Go
One of the fastest rappers to ever touch the mic, and he has been doing it since the early 90’s. If you want to really know how fast Busta Rhymes, check this article here. It breaks down a few of his fastest verses in terms of words per second and much more. It’s a great look at how fast he truly is. Also check out Let’s Go, it’s a song by Travis Barker but it features Busta Rhymes, Yelawolf and Twista so it has some seriously fast spitters on it. Check that out here.
Busta Rhymes – Break Ya Neck

DJ Khaled – All I Do Is Win (Remix) [feat. Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz & T-Pain] (Busta’s verse starts at 1:23)

2: Tech N9NE
Fastest Tracks: Welcome to the Midwest, Worldwide Choppers, Midwest Choppers
The Kansas City emcee has been on the grind for over twenty years now and hasn’t lost any of his monster flow. If you have been paying attention then you’ll have noticed that Yelawolf, Busta Rhymes, Twista and Tech N9NE all have Worldwide Choppers on their Fastest Tracks. You know what that means, a whole track dedicated to the fastest spitters in the game. He also recruits a whole bunch of fast foreign artists to hop on board (and they rap in their native tongue). Once again (shocker), Soundcloud was being a pain and didn’t have Welcome to the Midwest which might be Tech’s fastest verse, so I would definitely check that out by clicking here.
Tech N9NE – Midwest Choppers (feat. Krayzie Bone & K-Dean) (Tech hits up the last verse)

Tech N9NE – Worldwide Choppers (feat. Ceza, JL, U$o, Yelawolf, Twista, Busta Rhymes, D-Loc & Twisted Insane) (the names are in order of appearance)

1: Twista
Fastest Tracks: Creep Fast, Smile, Worldwide Choppers, Look At Me Now (Remix), Slow Jamz, Kill Us All, R.P.M., Let’s Go
The self proclaimed fastest rapper in the world lives up to that title. His fastest verse, Slow Jamz with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx, even hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. I officially hate Soundcloud, it has a total of zero original Twista songs. My favorite Twista song is Creep Fast where he completey spazzes, so check that out here. My other favorite Twista verse is when he makes a guest appearance on The Alchemist cut Smile along with R&B singer Maxwell, listen to that here. In order to get the full impact of this list, you need to listen to those last two songs.
Chris Brown – Look At Me Now (Remix) [feat. Twista, Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes] (I feel like Twista out does Busta on here, and that’s saying a lot)

    thanks for the suggestion, i just listened to it and he does go pretty damn fast. If I had found that song sooner, it would have been up there.

    Essa lista está errada… 1º Krayzie Bone, 2º Flesh N Bone, 3º Bizzy Bone, 4º Tech N9ne, etc…

  7. […] of the most promising up and comers repping the west coast, and that’s saying a lot. He has one of the sickest flows I’ve ever seen and now that he has confidence behind the mic, look out. There is no one and nothing that can stop […]
