Not all rappers need critical adoration to achieve commercial success. Some use negative reviews as motivation, others dismiss them as hate, and a few of them probably don't know what constitutes a review. But it's commendable anytime an artist reaches some level of success. In fact, some of the most popular artists of past and current generations have been critical dwarves. Consider this an ode to the artists who are often the butt of rap-snob jokes. Here's our list of the top five critic-proof rappers.

5. Mac Miller

Why Critics Hate Him: His subject matter, (kool aid, frozen pizza, Nikes on his feet, smoking loud, and pretty much all forms of raging), is youthful, if not childish. And despite his stellar production, he rarely (see: never) composes a memorable track.

Why Fans Love Him: When you're living young, wild and free, as most Mac Miller fans are, there's no time for analysis or criticism.
