The Web’s Top 10 Rappers

The Web's Top Rappers
Rap music, and the greater hip hop culture, permeate everything — films, TV, fashion, and vast quantities of popular music — and have done for decades now; to the degree where you could hardly parse out the influence. So much is the impact a given, that you could pretty much fairly define our western popular culture in pre and post-hip hop terms.

Both online and off, few are more vaunted, well-compensated, and widely recognized, in our western world, than the most successful hip hop artists. Now no longer mere pop stars, but often actual moguls, these men and women are among the first to cross one’s mind when hearing the words “rich and famous” or “celebrity.” And of course, they also rule the charts, selling recordings by the millions; even during these days when such a feat is only becoming rarer and rarer.

Needless to say, a “digital footprint” survey of this sort is a natural.

Using our frankly magnificent PeekScore scale, we’ve determined which rappers — of the hundreds, possibly thousands, indexed by PeekYou — are currently the most prominent, influential, active, and making the greatest impacts in cyberspace. For clarity, this is not an assessment of their skills on the mic, their chart successes, their varying degrees of business acumen, nor even the degrees to which they’re each famous in the flesh and blood world.

So prominent, here on the Web, are these particular individuals, that each brandishes our top PeekScore of 10. In digital footprint terms, these men and women are bigfoots.

If you click on the items on the list below you’ll be taken to the corresponding individual’s PeekYou profile; where you’ll be led to tons of links to audio, video, photos, social pages, personal and business websites, interviews, articles, and much more of the best of what the Web has to offer in relation to their lives and careers.
