Top 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About

If the number 9 is involved, you better believe Tech N9ne won’t be far behind.

In a field dominated by radio hits and blog fame, many emcees pumping out unique music are sometimes overlooked. In an attempt to shine a brighter light on these skilled artists, HotNewHipHop.com has compiled their list of Top 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About.

From the likes of TDE’s Ab-Soul to fan-favorite Hopsin, the list includes some names that may be familiar to the indie crowd, including the general Tech N9ne.

Crediting the Kansas City King with sticking to his unorthodox style, HHN had this to say:

Tech Ninna has got to be one of the hardest working rappers in the game, even if he’s not plastered all over your favorite blog everyday. The Kansas City rapper has been working from the underground up, yet remains true to himself and his sound. And that sound is quite strange. “Strange Music,” the title of his independent label, pretty much says it all. But strange isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as Tech proves. Tech flows over many different sounds and creates strong projects with crazy lyrical content touching on just about everything.

When it comes to creativity, it’s hard to top the guy that built an empire on some of the most bizarre rap styles ever heard on wax.
