Top Rappers on Twitter

Twitter has become the best way to keep up with your favorite rappers. Since hip hop is such a competitive sport, I thought it would be a good idea to put together this list of the top rappers on twitter with over 100k followers. Why over 100k you ask? Because I find most rappers under 100k are regional acts.

Anyway, in the number one slot is Nicki Minaj with over 9.6 million followers and in the last spot at #64 is Method Man with 110k followers.

What I am most surprised by is Jim Jones having 2.4 million followers, I thought he was a 400k type rapper lol. In fact, he has 20 times the amount of followers as Cam’ron, who was the de facto leader in Dip Set. Jim’s follower account is likely due to his early adoption of twitter and his appearances on his wife’s VH1 show “Love & Hip Hop”.

Also of note is Mac Miller, who is the only independent artist with over a million followers and quickly approaching 2 million. Who needs radio to play your record a billion times a day to sell records? Not Mac.

If you want to follow any of these rappers just click on their twitter name. Also if we are missing any rapper over 100k followers, let us know in the comments section.

Update: Whoops, I made a boo-boo. It seems I’ve missed a few rappers and the comments section has caught fire, so I’ve painstakingly updated the list. For a future post, I’m going to see if there’s a correlation between followers and album sales.

  1. Earl Sweatshirt, Kendrick Lamar, Fabolous, Pharrell, Kreayshawn, RZA, Curren$y, Bun B, Methodman, Ghostface, Raekwon, M.I.A., Fat Joe, Ludacris, Talib, Snoop, Busta, Q-tip, and probably a lot more.  A bunch of these guys are over a million too, come on…

    1. Thanks fam, I used your input to update the list. 

  2. Slim Thug, Bun B, Chamillionaire….. I guess what I’m saying is your list sucks, and it’s an insult to Texas.

    But yeah keep following French Montana, Waka, Tyga and Lil’ Kim…. wack sh…

    1. I love Texas rap, it’s actually kind of hard to remember over 50 rappers name. But UGK is some shit I grew up on. Who else is poppin in Texas? Don’t say Kirko Bangz.

  3. Plies 335,694

    Nice Omission 

    1. Haha got it!

  4. I dont believe the numbers expecially when the ppl are buying followers… dont believe me? Google how to buy followers

    1. Yeah I’ve seen that stuff. I’m not sure it works to get real people that will engage with you though.

  5. @JoeBudden  464,939 Followers 

    1. How could I forgot Budden!!! Shame on me. Thank you bro!

  6. I know Joe Budden and Questlove should be up there as well, and in response to guest210, plies isn’t really a “rapper” he’s more of a parody 

    1. I don’t know about Questlove as a rapper. I follow him for his insight, but I don’t recall him spitting any bars.
