As the onset of Wordle mania gave way to the creation of a fervent spin-off Heardle community, there is no shortage of games exclusive to a particular topic or genre. And of course, rap music is not excluded from developing within this viral phenomenon.
In this post, we have gathered 4 Heardle games for fans of rap and hip hop music persuasion.
Top 4 Rap Heardle games
Rap Heardles are no different in gameplay if you are already familiar with the Heardle game landscape. Your objective on the game board is to figure out the mystery track of the day based on short music snippets that reveal the intro of the track in a gradual fashion. In total, you get 6 attempts to complete the challenge, and whether you make it or not truly depends on your music knowledge.
In other words, there is no room for luck in Heardle; so, what will be the outcome when the track list is a curated list of rap music? Test it out with the rap-based Heardle games listed below.
1. Ya Heardle!
Courtesy of Sean Campbell, an ardent fan of rap music and black music TV shows from the 90s, Ya Heardle! tests how diligent you were growing up listening to R&B and hip-hop music of the era.
The curated song list for the game is infused with quite a bit of R&B tracks of the same generation; Campbell made this decision to add to the density of the song list as well as make the challenge a tad trickier for players.
Note: As some of the songs entail expletives, Ya Heardle! may be more suited for an age-appropriate player base.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to see a Heardle clone dedicated to embracing the dense discography of Eminem, the Rap God. With over 54 singles (as leads) and 11 studio albums under his belt (excluding the promotional and guest projects), Eminem persists at the top of the chain as the best-selling artist of all time.
If you are an Eminem fan, then it is time to take on the daily EMINEM Heardle challenge to unveil the mystery Eminem track of the day in the least moves possible.
The king of rap and controversy alike, there is no shortage of discussions praising and condemning the unbridled energy of this legendary rapper. While all the other Heardle games are fan tributes to their idols, Kanye West Heardle is the artist’s own celebration of his unsurpassed feats in the rap and music industry as a hit maker.
Like Heardle and Wordle, Kanye West Heardle is also a daily challenge but it is solely based on the song list curated only with Kanye West’s contribution to the hip-hop and music industry. Your challenge is to emerge the victor with more attempts to spare than used — something a superfan can accomplish even while in a deep sleep.
It would be blasphemy if the first and only rapper to receive the Pulitzer Prize for music to not have a Heardle in his moniker. Of course, the world shan’t incur the weight of such a sin, for there indeed exists a complete fan tribute Heardle game in Lamar’s honor.
Created by Twitter user “eggtartemily“, Kendrick Lamar Heardle, is a respectful nod towards the great contributions made by the rapper, and songwriter through his own music and the ones that feature him.
