OK I don't know about individuals' personality types... but rappers that give off ENFP vibes to me are artists with social messages... actually more hip-hop/R&B comes to mind -- but like Talib Kweli, de la Soul, Chuck D/Public Enemy, Jill Scott... to social vision + art + communication + community = ENFP vibes :)

I don't have the most exhaustive knowledge of rap so there are probably more strict rappers I'm overlooking.

We're too heartfelt for the rap scene. We need something more abstract and emotional.
Thinking about rap as a medium, an art form - verbal - I think that's super-ENFP compatible. certain scenes, like hardcore gangsta rap, feel kinda incompatible w/ ENFP personality to me. But I don't think rap is incompatibe with ENFP :)

it's all words -- so there can be abstract ideas in the words. And rap creates community around an art form, which is majorly ENFP. And it's expressive and performance-based -- like us. : )

Busta Rhymes is a possibility because he's so off the wall & energetic. But do you think he might be S?

I could see K'naan as possibly being an ENFP. But also I could see that being just my wishful thinking. :)

It's really hard, for me, to type someone based on their music.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the more insane/crazy rappers were ENFP or similar. Like:
Ol' Dirty Bastard, Busta Rhymes

Edits:
I second the Childish Gambino

I think Lil Wayne could be... he's so "heart on his sleeve" and varies between wildly immature to really deep. He also does a ton of improvisational stuff, and is constantly trying to define/re-define himself.

Will Smith? He may be ESFP though, and hardly a rapper.
What about Mos Def? I've seen him typed as ENFP, but I haven't listened to enough of his stuff to know.

Side note: If anyone sees/hears that the mask he's wearing in this video has gone missing, let it be known that I am the guilty party.
