Qualities of a REAL Emcee

Appearance (take pride in your appearance; grooming, overall hygiene, clean clothes etc.)

Approachable (respect your supporters)

Consistent Flow (no breaks)

Mystique/Charisma (something about you makes people want to get to know you)

Story Telling/Rhyme Content (keeping the listener interested; concise delivery)

Uniqueness (stands out in a crowd)

Versatility (different styles; ability to tell a story to different types of music)

Voice Strength (deep, raspy, high pitched…just keep it consistent)

Below is a list of Emcees I believe satisfy all of the must have qualities:


Big Daddy Kane




Master Ace

MC Lyte


Queen Latifah





A Felon
Genesis Be
The Dedaman

Unlike most lists, my lists are in alphabetical order only! This is not a gossipy, trashy, tear folks down blog site. My blog is all about uplifting and giving credit to people who grind hard and keep my ears happy! J

To all of the artists listed, thank you for taking YOUR time to create great music.
