10. 50 Cent
According toRolling Stone,50 Cent’s secret weapon is his deceptively impressive singing voice. His vocal range is evident in such songs asWindow ShopperandMy Buddy.
KidCudi’s rap possesses a slightly melodic style, which is especially noticeable in the 2009 hitDay N’Nite.His vocal range may be a bit limited, but he can pull off far more than the average rapper.
His combination of singing and rapping is impressive, but his claim of being the first musician to merge rapping and singing was a bit off-putting. Several stars had already accomplished this long before Drake, and several will continue to do so in the future.
