And lastly, concluding the shortest rappers’ list, we have Bushwick Bill. He does not have not that much fan following on Instagram, Spotify, SoundCloud, or other social media platforms. He is the shortest rapper on our list, as his height is 1.12 meters.

That does not mean he does not deserve that much recognition, but there are artists who are just hidden gems, just like Bushwick Bill, whose real name is Richard William Stephen Shaw.

Richard William has been in the industry since 1986, and his career ended in 2019. Why? He died at the age of 52 due to pancreatic cancer on 9th June 2019 in Denver, Colorado.
