10 Rappers who are also Amazing Singers!

1. Rocky
ASTRO's Rocky is not the lead vocalist by any means in his group! In fact, Rocky is the lead rapper, but has the ability to sing extremely well! Fans are consistently stunned by Rocky's ability to sing completely on par with the rest of the group or on his own!
2. T.O.P.
Big Bang's T.O.P. is known as being a talented and multi-faceted artist! In fact, his rap skills are renown! Though his voice could be tightened up with extra vocal training, we find that the mellow and deep voice style he employs is perfection! With some vocal refinement, he could release his own ballads, in addition to his classic rap style.
3. S.Coups
S.Coups of Seventeen has a singing voice that's as sweet as honey. He even has an impressive vocal range that not many know about! Though he is the leader, hip hop team leader, and main rapper of the group, S.Coups was actually originally cast for his singing abilities! We hope he gets more lines as a singer in the future!
4. Jessi
Though most know Jessi for her badass rap ability, she actually is a fantastic crooner! Thanks to her almost winning Unpretty Rapstar, her group, Lucky J, gained a lot more attention! Jessi, like some of the other rappers, originally wanted to be a singer, but chose to go down the rapping route instead! This particular cover above is originally a Rihanna song, but Jessi does Queen RiRi great justice!
5. Moonbyul
MAMAMOO's Moonbyul is cute, spunky, and adorable! But with the other LOUD beagle vocalists in the group, it's hard to remember that she can sing too! She has a sweeter voice than her fellow members that makes her voice stand out! In this cover of Eddy Kim's 'The Manual', she showcases her coffee shop sound that's normally hidden by her Main Rapper title.
6. J-Hope
If Jungkook is the Golden Maknae, J-Hope of BTS is the Golden Hyung! He can dance and rap while maintaining a smile on everyone's faces! However, many aren't aware of his vocal talents! His improvements as a singer from the very first days of BTS to now has been tenfold and it's clear to see that his sweet vocals have blossomed into memorable music!
7. Amber
Singing seems effortless for Amber of f(x)! Now that she's had solo stages, it seems a bit more obvious that she has singing skills, but it's a shame Amber doesn't get the chance to showcase her vocal ability more often! Her singing and rapping are on absolute par with each other!
8. Chanyeol
Though Chanyeol from EXO is known for his height, guitar-playing, rapping, and vivacious personality, many aren't aware of his song covers and experimental music! In fact, in this video pictured above, Chanyeol is doing an acoustic cover of John Legend's 'All of Me'! His singing is relaxing and mellow and we can't seem to wrap our heads around why he doesn't sing more in EXO!
9. Jooheon
MONSTA X's Jooheon has an extremely rough rapping voice with a ton a charisma! However, when he sings, it's sweet and airy! It's a stark contrast between the two skills, but Jooheon definitely can sing with the best of them! His members can be seen encouraging him to sing in the above video of him covering G-Dragon!
10. LE
LE from EXID surprises us with an incredibly special singing voice! We think that LE's singing voice is reminiscent of an early 90s Britney Spears! However, LE has stunned on many occasions with perfect pitch and near-perfect vocal arrangements!

Let us know in the comments below who your favorite multi-talented idol rappers are!

Yes indeed, my opinion about rap artists has changed a little bit for the better, before I was not very positively tuned, because of the rep culture itself, read the article you will understand what I mean, but now another quality level for rap artists has opened for me, I even and could not think that they can sing. Moreover, they sing wonderfully and even different repertoire, in YouTube you can watch a huge number of videos on this topic. Why, what, and I certainly did not expect such a turn of events!
