When it comes to the traditional ideal man as "tall, dark, and handsome", most rappers do not fit the bill. However, what they don't deliver in looks, they can always make up for with their money. Luckily for these rappers, they can get in a studio and deliver music which reaches the ears of millions before it reaches their eyes. But when the song is so good, nobody seriously cares about what the rapper may look like. If you aren’t blind sighted by images of stacks of money and flashy jewelry when watching a typical rap video, then the scantily-dressed and beautiful models surely will distract you.
Rappers are rarely, if ever, pressured to be handsome or sexy. Some rappers are even characterized and famous simply because of their distinguished look rather than by their music. But, the beauty and art behind any craft is being able to express yourself-- flaws and all. Fortunately, with fame comes money. And with money comes groupies. Attractive or not, these rappers are winning either way. But, don't take it from me, these rappers have been ridiculed publicly for looking less than their R&B counterparts.
10 Flavor Flav
7 Lil Wayne
6 Mannie Fresh
Given his looks, it does not come as a surprise that the girl Biz Markie rapped about in "Just a Friend" was simply not feeling him, however, the rapper knows he lacks in the looks department. In 1993, he released All Samples Cleared!. On the album was one track in particular titled "I'm An Ugly N***** (So What)". In the song the rapper says:
2 Lil Jon
1 Young Thug
He's different and embraces it. Coming in at number one is rapper Young Thug. He's even stated in an interview that he is aware of all the things people say about him:
“I like everything that people say,” he continued: “No matter what they say. You ***, you a punk. You got a nice girlfriend, you’re ugly, you can’t rap, you’re the hardest.”
Regardless of his haters, Young Thug continues to make music and top radio airwaves. He recently released his latest mixtape Slime Season 3 which has overall received positive reviews. Despite what people say, between his growing net worth and beautiful fiance, Young Thug is undoubtedly winning.
