Although sometimes referred to as a spoken word artist as opposed to a rapper, Dessa’s singing and rapping abilities are both evident in her solo career and her work with Doomtree.

3. Missy Elliott

She may be best known for her racy rapping numbers, but Missy Elliott is also an accomplished singer. Her ability was best displayed in the catchy hitTeary Eyed.

2. Ja Rule

Ja Rule is the rapping version of a triple threat — he can rap, sing and act. However, over a decade after leading the singing rap movement, Ja Rule actually apologized for this development.
