Alright, time to delve into some possibly dangerous waters. This is @MadAndrea recommending that you might want to grab a life vest, just in case.
Keep in mind, this is not saying anyone left out of this list, is or is not a rapper. They just aren't my personal top 3. You may disagree, that's what opinions are all about; but give it a thought as you read.
If your opinion differs, please comment and let me know. Or let me know your favorites.
However; Vingle is a positive place, so comment as such. You can disagree of course and voice that opinion, but please just keep a cool head.

He corrected someone when they said he was a rapper. He instead said that he is simply the person who raps.
So what's the difference?
A lot. These are just some things that there's been a general consensus on as far as what makes a rapper.
1. They have the ability to keep time and flow.
2. They can use emotion in their voice, they don't sound like they're just conversing or monotone. It's inflection, and rappers have that.
3. They write their lyrics. This is probably the biggest thing that makes a rapper.
4. They either help create the beat or create it on their own.
1. Speed rap
Not everyone can rap like Eminem or Busta, but that doesn't make them less of a rapper. Look at Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, they don't rap fast, but they're respected rappers. Dre is more of a producer, but when he raps it's mellow.
2. Underground or previously underground
Not everyone has that opportunity. Many idol rappers get picked up really young and may not have the chance to try that out. Many people live in the middle of nowhere and need to completely uproot their lives to do that.
3. Has a mixtape
Could very well be in the works or they don't feel the need. Especially if the work they make is already being put on albums.
4. Has an abrasive attitude
No person needs to have a mean mug on their face 24/7. Ice Cube of NWA once wrote a song about how it was a good day and nothing went wrong. Not every rapper needs to be harsh in every song.
5. Can freestyle
Personally, I don't consider this necessary. I find it very cool and definitely respect it, but some people can't rap on the fly. Maybe they put a lot of thought into their lyrics so they just can't spit at a moments notice. Some can do both.
Now onto the list!
Seungyoun of UNIQRecipe, Baby Ride, and How Have You Been.M.O.L.ASlave
The leader of B.A.P4:44Q
Namjoon of BTSJokeLifeAwakeningRMLife, Awakening, Joke, Do You
Shout outs to idol rappers I didn't mention, but also love:
Zelo of B.A.PNo TitleSuga and J-Hope of BTSAGUST D1Verse
Shout outs to idols who can change it up and do both:
Z.TAO who knows how to bump a beat and turn up the bass- Underground KingLuhan who not only made a song in English, but also made use of the classic trap music style- Lu
Shout outs to the members who rap, or have rapped, in idol groups and sound awesome:
Chanyeol of EXOYibo and Yixuan of UNIQJungkook of BTSKey of SHINee
Yes they can be fluffy and cute, but don't forget that a rapper lurks inside.
Thank you for reading and if you are wondering why the list and shout outs are short, it's because I haven't gotten into a ton of groups to the point that I can make true judgements.
