Rappers don’t get enough credit for being genuinely hilarious—whether they mean to be or not. Some of the funniest rappers in the game right now are the ones who ignore the status quo, unafraid of what other people think of them. That’s the true essence of hip-hop, anyway: being yourself without any concessions.
Being able to engage with an audience through funny Instagram Lives, memes, and tweets not only shows artists’ sense of humor, it also brings them closer to their fans. Of course, there are lots of different ways to be funny. Some rappers, like Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X, and Tyler, the Creator, are funny on purpose, while others, like Future, are more aloof, sometimes being hilarious without even meaning to be.
