I am looking for rap metal I would like. I like 90s rap and Eminem. I do like like Biohazard who are hardcore with rapping. I like Run DMC and Cypress Hill who have some rock influences. I don't like RATM that much but they are decent. I am still sleeping on Faith No More but I think they are good. I hate Limp Bizkit. The problem I have with rap metal is generally the metal is not as good as pure metal and the rapping is not as good as pure rap like Biggie. Recommend me the best rap metal there is.

Stuck Mojo is one of the few that I've found has staying power. Any of their albums up through Declaration of a Headhunter are quite good.

Dub War, maybe? The rap element is closer to Ragga than US rap, and the metal leans more towards alternative styles. But they were pretty decent, and made a great noise. I'm only really familiar with their debut "Pain", and I've never paid attention to Benji's later band Skindred, so I can't comment beyond that.

it's more like rap with metal vibes but City Morgue does a real good job of blending that stuff together.

Not necessarily rapping, but Archspire has some crazy fast machine gun vocals. Check out their song "Calamus WIll Animate", apparently the intro is a tribute to "Stamina" by Tech N9ne.

More hardcore than metal, perhaps.

Machine Head did something very close to rapping on some songs on The Burning Red.

Check out Mx The American. I personally don't like rap metal but check I think you should check them out. They are good musicians and play with a lot of energy live.

Heavy metal fan and musician.

My musical projects are:

Solo project "Stamos" (playing anything from church music to raw heavy metal): https://stamossologre.bandcamp.com/

SI4 (Christian Hard Rock/Heavy Metal):

They aren’t on metal archives, but, instrumentally, they’re pretty close to Dying Fetus(who they shared members with).
The only “-isms” you need, are individualism, and GISM.

Surprised no one mentioned Beastie Boys. I mean Kerry King even played on No Sleep till Brooklyn

Since you mentioned Faith no More then check out some other funk metal bands like Mordred, and Infectious Grooves.
In reference to Baby Metal
