What MBTI types do you reckon some of the newer rappers are? I don't know much about old-school hip hop, so I can only really make decent guesses on recent rap music. I'll throw out some educated guesswork:

Kanye West - ENFP (CelebrityTypes has him down as an ISFJ, but I'm a firm believer that he's an ENFP)
Drake - ENFJ (imo this is fairly clear, even though some have him down as an ESTP)
Kendrick Lamar - INFP (CT thinks he's an ISFJ too, again I disagree)
Future - ISFP (it's easy to see him as ESTP, but he's clearly introverted and his lyrics are more Fi than Ti)
J Cole - ISTJ (he's not an INTJ. This is what an ISTJ rapper looks like)
Nicki Minaj - ESFP
Iggy Azalea - ESTP
Ty Dolla $ign - ESFP
Wiz Khalifa - ESTP
Travis $cott - INFP
Kid Cudi - INFP
Mac Miller - ENTP
Danny Brown - ENTP
Kevin Abstract - ISFP
A$AP Rocky - ESFP
Tyler, The Creator - ESFP
Young Thug - ENFP
YG - ESTP (I could also see ESTJ)
French Montana - ESTP
21 Savage - ISTP (duh)
Big Sean - ESFP (also duh)
Lil Uzi Vert - ESFP
Playboi Carti - ISTP
Joey Bada$$ - INTJ (clearly more Ni than most rappers supposed to be INxJ)
Lil Yachty - ESFP (candy, rainbows, sunshine, money, drugs, friends)
Vince Staples - ISTP (I'd be interested if anyone saw him differently)
Jimi Tents - INFJ (rare example of an INFJ rapper, imo)
DRAM - ESFP
Lil Aaron - ISFP
Yung Lean - ISFP
Childish Gambino - ENFP (his 2016 album was especially ENFP-ish lmao)
Vic Mensa - ENFJ? He's got such a varied persona it's hard to say
Kamaiyah - ESFJ (very Fe and lots of Si-esque lyrics)
The Weeknd - ISFP (of course)
Kyle - ESFJ
G-Eazy - ENTJ
Gucci Mane - ESTP
Killer Mike - ENTJ
El-P - INTJ
Chance The Rapper - ENFJ (Fe-Ni-Se-Ti just makes so much sense as his function order)
Swae Lee - ESFP
Slim Jxmmi - ESTP
2 Chainz - ENTP (seems ESTP, but there's a lot of Ne to his lyrics)
Tyga - ESTP (sorry, ESTPs)
Lupe Fiasco - ENFJ (pretty evident)
Wale - ESFJ (seems kind of like an unhealthy ESFJ)
Freddie Gibbs - ENTP (duh)
Meek Mill - ESTJ
Big KRIT - ENTJ
Lil B - ESFP
Macklemore - ESFP
ScHoolboy Q - ESTP
Ab-Soul - INTJ
Logic - ISFJ (clearly a lot of Ti and Fe, my guess is ISFJ but I'm not certain on this one)
Action Bronson - ENTP
Kevin Gates - ESTJ
Denzel Curry - ENTJ
Kodak Black - ESTP
Quavo - ESTP
Jidenna - ENTJ (long live the chief)
6LACK - INTJ
Stormzy - ESTP
Skepta - ESTP
Father - ENTP (probably the most ENTP rapper around)
Earl Sweatshirt - INTP (because what else?)
Bobby Raps - INFP
Russ - INTJ
Riz-MC - INTJ
Heems - ENTP
Kodie Shane - ESFP
Chief Keef - ESTP
Lil Peep - INFP
Lil Pump - DUMBASS
Desiigner - ESFP
Lil Dicky - ENTP
Amine - ENFP
Ugly God - ESTP
XXXTentacion - ISFP (I could definitely see INTJ. He's an introvert who uses Fi, Te, Se and Ni)


I have no idea what Post Malone's type is. Anyway, guess away.

Kendrick Lamar seems more ENFP to me but idk.
Tyler seems ENFP as well. Joey Bada$$ seems kinda INFJ to me.

But that's just how I see them.
Other than that, most of these seem pretty correct to me, tbh.

Tyler is ENFP.. most Ne person ever
Joey is INFJ he values Fe over Te.. he's people oriented watch his interviews
Cole is IxFJ he's definitely an Fe user for sure. He's most likely INFJ as well
I think French is ESFP.. get more Fi vibe than Fe from him
Why Ti over Fi for Playboy Carti? I get more ISFP from him
Glad you agree that Kanye is ENFP ain't no way in hell he's an Fe user, thats idiotic.
Vic Mensa is really annoying to me, he could be ENFJ.. he's so dramatic. definitely Se/Ni and Ti/Fe
XXX is ISFP I agree, used to think he was ISTP but he is way too melodramatic
how'd you get INTJ for 6Lack? I don't know much about him but i'd be surprised to see an INTJ make his kind of music..
I think Denzel Curry is ENTP Ne/Ti not Te/Ni
I can't say for sure what Mac Miller is because he's tough to type but how ENTP? same for Freddie Gibbs? I always got more of an inferior Fe vibe for Freddie, I always thought ISTP for him
Killer Mike seems more Fe than Te in my opinion, but maybe i'm looking at it wrong
Lil B is definitely 100000000000% Ne and not Se.. ENFP no question.
Young Thug is definitely Fi-Se in my opinion.. don't see any Ne in him at all. he has a weird style but I don't think it stems from Ne. He persona is just like Future in my opinion. Not like a Cudi.
100% agree with Drake being ENFJ.. people who type him as a sensor don't really listen to his lyrics
that closely or they only listen to his hit songs
I disagree with Lupe being Ni, Lupe's lyrics are extremely Ne. Ever heard Mural? most Ne lyrics ever.
I think Desiigner is Fe and not Fi.. I think he's ExTP. just a very positive and nice ExTP
Chief Keef is an introvert.. ISTP for sure
Vince Staples is for sure ENTP. He's a living real life internet troll. He cannot stay on one topic in an interview. His Ne rambles on and on and on. And he makes a lot of Si references to his past when he speaks.
Logic seems Ne and Fe to me but I can't imagine him being Si dominant... not sure about him
What makes Kyle not ExFP? His personality is a lot like DRAM, very positive carefree and happy go lucky. I think he's ENFP
Why not ESTP for Meek Mill? not saying you're wrong I just don't see Si and Ne in him.
I think Iggy is Fi and not Ti. I'd say ESFP

major thank you to OP for making this thread I love typing rappers.

What types do you think Wayne and Rick Ross are? for Wayne I can decide between Se and Ne. I think he's ExTP though, don't see any Fi in him.

Also put DOOM in there he's INTP and Jay-Z as INTJ.

major thank you to OP for making this thread I love typing rappers.
I don't see any Ne in Logic at all. I see an awful lot of Fe, Ti and Si. I could imagine him as a strained INTP or something but I type him as an ISFJ because he clearly values equality and the importance of working together as people (Fe), he raps a LOT about family, his past and personal experiences (Si), in interviews and his wife's YouTube videos he's reserved and kinda subdued (Introvert), he upholds the importance of religious and family values on songs like "Lord Willin" and he's interested in the traditions of hip hop as a whole (Si again). What other types would you suggest for him? INFJ? ENFP? I just don't see much Ne in him, to be honest.

I used to think Tyler was an ENFP (Bastard and Goblin are the most "unbalanced and psychotic ENFP" vibes ever) but Ne tends to show itself through the creation of metaphors, ideas and spontaneous creation. Se tends to show itself through colors, images and sensations. Tyler's sense of style and his music are clearly ExFP, no one's denying that, but I see his use of bright colors and sensations to create a vibe as more S than N. I could still see him as ENFP though, to me he's kind of on the boundary.

Joey is probably an INFJ yeah. You're right about that. You're probably right about French Montana as an ESFP, too. Se has such prominence in his lyrics that it's kind of hard to discern beyond "ESxP". Same goes for Desiigner, who could easily be an ESTP. I guess Denzel could be an ENTP, clearly ENTx though.

I can see Cole's connection to humanity as Fe, but I disagree with him as an INFJ. Reconsidering, I would say that J Cole is an ISFJ for kind of the same reasons that Logic is. He named a whole album after his childhood home, he's deeply involved with the traditions and customs of hip-hop, and his personal experiences are what empower and drive him. I think an INFJ would be more conceptual and ambitious with their ideas, focus more on the future, and less on the past. Cole often talks about the importance of responsibility. He discusses role models and family troubles, and focuses more on details and descriptions than on long-ranging concepts and theories the same way that rappers like Joey (INFJ) or Run The Jewels (both xNxJ) do. Also, I can't really see him as someone with Inferior Se.

I see Carti as an ISTP because he's cool and detached. His lyrics mostly talk about actions rather than emotions, and I feel like if he was an ISFP he would express himself more in his lyrics. He clearly sees reality as being more important than interpretation (a kind of "it is what it is" attitude) which I don't think an Fi-dom would agree with.

I think 6LACK is an INTJ for a few reasons. First off, I see him as a fairly clear Introvert. His lyrics are direct and detached, and he's clearly a reserved guy. Cognitive function-wise, I see a lot of Te/Fi and a lot of Se/Ni. I think he's an Se/Ni dom because he's clearly got a complicated relationship with these two functions. In his songs, he often discusses his tendencies to either overindulge in material pleasures or neglect them entirely. He sees himself more conceptually than I think most rappers do, often implying ideas about what drives the people who surround him, and what the future will hold. He also has strong ideas about long-term relationships, saying that they're what he really desires, stressing the importance of the future. He finds himself too easily sliding from one thing to another, when what he really wants is stability. He's also clearly ambitious. All of these things make me think he's an INxJ, and I'd argue that he uses Fi rather than Fe. He's got a similar kind of reputation to Drake, just more introverted and logical. Since Drake is an ENFJ, it would make sense for 6LACK to be INTJ. I'm not saying his lyrics are genius or that he puts remarkable amounts of subtlety in his songs, but I do think he's an INTJ. I agree that an INTJ would be unlikely to make that kind of music, but he clearly does a lot of drugs, and also there are INTJs that work for Buzzfeed.

It's interesting that you say Lupe uses a lot of Ne, and I'd probably agree, but I also think he uses a lot of Fe. He doesn't strike me as an Fi-user, he's often focused on family and togetherness rather than the individualistic drive of the ENFP. But I don't see him as an ENTP either, and if he is one then he's got some pretty repressed Ti. ESFJ would actually make a fair bit of sense in my opinion, maybe he's an ESFJ with an Fe-Ne loop or something. I guess I'll have to haphazardly type him as an ENFP/ESFJ.

Thug is interesting because it's hard to say whether he's Ne or Se. Kinda like Lil Wayne in that sense. As you say, he's an Fi-user. The reason I'd argue him as an xNFP is because he often leaps from lyric to lyric without much organisation or prior association, he's clearly good at connecting things together mentally. His eccentricity also says Ne to me. Also, all of his albums are kinda invented spontaneously. JEFFERY was a concept album (kind of) about the person he really is behind "Young Thug". His recent one BTG was suddenly all about romance and pop music etc etc. He's also got an offbeat sense of humor, and there's a delightfully random progression to his lyrics ("I'm way in the moon, kickin' sh*t without a broom, my mama can't lose, imma keep her in a fresh car and I'll put on her shoes") and when you compare that to Future, whose lyrical progression is more linear, you kinda see a difference. Despite this, there's a good argument for Se (lyrics about sex and drugs, focus on how the music sounds rather than its content, interest in fashion, hedonism) but I'd argue that's just stemming from his Ne. Also, Young Thug's persona is eccentric, colorful, spontaneous and weirdo. Future's is jaded, drug-filled, tired, violent and serious in comparison. I also think that "Jeffery" is introverted while "Thug" is extroverted. In interviews, he's really introverted, but I think the rapper and the man behind him are two different people in terms of MBTI. I'd say Thug is an ENFP and Jeffery is an INFP.

Meek's way of thinking tends to revolve around success, motivation, leadership, family and repressed personal issues. His most recent mixtape was even called "wins and losses". Most people would probably type him as ESTP. I'd say he's an ESTJ because I see him as using Te/Si rather than Se/Ti. An ESTP rapper (take Gucci Mane, for example) is focused on the benefits and rewards of being a famous rapper. The ambition and effort is just a road to whatever the ESTP wants to get out of rapping. The more practical and product-oriented ESTJ is more focused on the effort and ambition itself. Of course there's lyrics about balling and having sex, but you can find those in almost any modern rap artist's lyrics, regardless of MBTI. An ESTJ rapper would be interested in controlling his environment (as Meek is) and staying true to wherever he came from (also true, and a result of Si shining through). I think Meek has inferior Fi because he seems to repress his feelings in his songs and the songs about his emotions are therefore more serious and heartfelt than rappers with Feeling stacked higher functionally. Meek as a Te-dom makes more sense to me than as an Se-dom.

Kyle's general attitude is so amazingly positive and outwardly focused that it's really hard to see him as anything other than an Fe-dom. This contrasts with DRAM, who is a fairly straightforward Se-dom, someone who is incredibly friendly and cuddly but whose interests lie in sensory pursuits rather than interpersonal bonding and diplomacy. I guess he could be an ENFP, but I don't see much Fi in him at all. I see a lot more Fe.

Vince Staples as an ENTP? I don't think so. In interviews and even in his music, he's clearly very introverted and inwardly focused. I agree with what you say about staying on-topic, and his fairly spontaneous and Ne-based rambling, so I suppose he's an INTP? In a weird kind of a way, that actually would make a lot of sense for him.

Lil Wayne is a very eccentric ESTP. I used to think he's ENTP but he's just too sensory to be an ENTP. He also doesn't have the constantly questioning and inquisitive nature of a common ENTP. The drug abuse didn't exactly help, though. At this point he's DRUG.

Rick Ross is ESTJ for the same reasons that Meek Mill is. Focused even more than Meek on dominance and being "the boss", focus more on personal experiences and his past, and a clear product-oriented outlook as opposed to the process-oriented nature of the ESTP.

I get more of an Fi-Si vibe from Kendrick but he could be ENFP

Ne-Te is more present in a Tyler than a Kendrick or a Gambino
That's interesting you see Kendrick as Fi-Si, as there are many, especially INFJs, that type him as INFJ. I see the potential for Fe in him, as he is so community driven, but Ni is harder for me to spot with confidence. I most definitely see Fi-Ne-Si in his lyrics as an INFP myself, but there are also times I see Fe and glimpses of Ni-Se. He's a difficult one to type.

Gambino seems like a depressed ENFP. I agree with you, I see Tyler as more ENFP. He crazy.

LordDarthMoominKirby, agreed with Kanye as ENFP, but I've mentioned before on PerC that I think there's a chance he could be an INFP. His Fi is SO strong and he's described as an introvert by those close to him.

You may be right on Logic, I guess I see his mannerisms and humor as Ne-esque but he is definitely Fe valuing at least auxiliary. And he does rap a lot about his past so ISFJ may actually be right. His album concepts just seem very intuitive to me so I guess that's what makes me reluctant to type him as a dominant sensor. Definitely likely he could be ISFJ though. I know he's definitely not ESFJ or INTP. His F and T are close but i'm sure his Fe rules his Ti.

as far as Tyler, I still can't see how he could be Se. I can't give you facts but his vibe tells me Ne all the way. Granted he is very colorful but I think he does it in a way that juxtaposes because his humor and vibe is dark. I just think he offsets that and tries to throws the audience off with his bright and happy color palette. He's quirky, and he's never just speaking realistically.. he's very abstract in his thinking. A pattern that I noticed with Si rappers is that MOST [not all!] of them tend to abstain from drinking and drug use altogether. I see that with Logic, Tyler, Vince Staples etc. The only ones that tend to do it are the depressed Si users like Cudi etc..

Cole, you may definitely have a point. He seems very anti Se. He makes it a point not to be flashy and dress modestly. I mistook it for inferior Se instead of Se ignoring. He does have a lot of songs that he references his past like Wet Dreamz and like you said 2004 Forest Hills Drive is pretty much a huge Si reference. I always thought his worldview was Ni driven but it could very well be Si instead.

As far as Carti you convinced me. His lyrics are void of any F function, just Ti fueled Se. You're right.

6LACK is an interesting one. On first glance he could easily be written off as another ISFP artist like the Weeknd, but when I watch him in interviews he seems to have a logical air about him. He doesn't seem too driven by feeling. I'm still not seeing how Te is coming into play with him. He does give off an air of Ni but that's not obvious with him either. If he is indeed INTJ that kind of changes my view of all INTJs in general lol.

Lupe, I agree I don't see the indvidualism of most Fi users, but I also don't see Fe with him. He doesn't seem to sugarcoat his thoughts like most Fe users do. He seems blunt like someone who utilizes Te. He also doesn't have the facial emotions of a dominant Fe user. I still think he is just a very intellectual Ne-Fi user.

You bring up valid points about Thug being xNFP and I can't say you're wrong. I just still believe he doesn't have the mind of an Ne user. To me he gives off the vibe that he's focused and singular like an Ni user. I don't think he tends to entertain many possibilities in life and I see him as a very realistic person. Not ruling out NFP but I just doubt it.

Your analysis of Meek really gave me a different perspective of him cognitively. I can totally see what you're saying. He doesn't seem to give off the emotion of an Fe user. He does seem more reserved emotionally. I was always fooled into thinking he was Se over Si because of his lifestyle. Great analysis.

Vince can very well be INTP. I just know he's definitely Ti and Ne for sure.

Agreed with Wayne being a eccentric ESTP. The drugs are what give him an Ne appearence lol.

Kyle I have to look more into but I can't imagine him not being a perciever or a dominant judging type. Drake definitely, Kyle not at all..

Agree with all you additional typings..

What makes you think Ne over Fi for Gambino? Just curious

What makes you think Ne over Fi for Gambino? Just curious
Now I think about it, it would actually make a lot more sense that Gambino is an INFP. It's been hypothesised that he's a slightly depressed and dysfunctional ENFP, but Fi/Ne makes slightly more sense than Ne/Fi. Someone with Inferior Si would be kinda flighty and inconsistent, while someone with Inferior Te would be especially self-absorbed and neglect to focus on external facts and logic, which would make sense for Gambino. I think there's always been more of an Fi focus in his music than Ne, especially on "Camp". He's a little more Te-focused on albums like "because the internet" so I initially typed him as ENFP, but you're right, he's an INFP.

Lupe could easily be an ENFP. I don't listen to him as much as some of the others on this list, so you probably know more than I do. Thanks for replying to the thread, btw :)

only gonna list the ones I know of

A$AP Rocky is definitely Se dominant but I can't tell if he values Ti or Fi. I'm guessing ESTP but he can be ESFp

SchoolBoy Q is hard to type for me but ISTP makes sense

Snoop is another one that's hard to type. I just know he's a xxTP. I could see him being introverted and extroverted. I can't tell if he's Se or Ne.

RamRiddlz just off stereotyping i'm guessing is ESFP.

Clams Casino seems IxxJ to me. I know he is adverse to fame and he wants to work a normal job. I don't know if that says anything about what his type could be. He's definitely introverted though.

Post Malone comes off as INFP to me but he could be ISFP. Definitely Fi dominant though.

Lil Jon seems ESxP to me.

Raury I always thought INFP.

D Unis - ESTP
OT Genasis - ISTP
Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd - ESFP
Slim Jxmmi of Rae Sremmurd - ESTP
Bang Yong Guk - ISFP
Schoolboy Q - ESTP (I think his Se outweighs his Ti)

Lox Chatterbox - INFP
Ramriddlz - ESFP (or ESTP, he doesn't give off much personality in his songs)
Clams Casino - ISTJ (based off of interviews, because he's a producer not a rapper)
Snoop Dogg - ISTP (this is the most common guess, too)
Lil Jon - ESFP (yep)

I often enjoy naps. I get tired around 3pm and then can just doze off. I have a pretty uncomfortable sofa bed in my study, but it comes in handy for when I want to doze off.

There is no way post malone is an isfp. Isfp's only see the world from their perspective and don't get along with a lot of people. If you watch his podcast with h3h3 there's no way an isfp could talk about half the stuff he did for half as long as he did. He's either an enfp or possibly an entp if there were to be a debate against enfp. Enfp's have a wide range of interest and they strive to live out many different lives which he shows through his music and said in an interview he wanted to do a thrash album, an acoustic album, ect. What leads me to believe he could be an entp is that he's extremely confident. Entp's tend to lead towards narcissism and I'm not saying he's narcissistic, but I see a correlation. Also entp's are usually drinkers. These are just a few of many examples I have for each type of those types he could be, but he's definitely not introverted in any sense and is not an isfp.

Well guess that makes him ENFP then because he’s definitely not a Ti user

What MBTI types do you reckon some of the newer rappers are? I don't know much about old-school hip hop, so I can only really make decent guesses on recent rap music. I'll throw out some educated guesswork:

Kanye West - ENFP (CelebrityTypes has him down as an ISFJ, but I'm a firm believer that he's an ENFP)
Drake - ENFJ (imo this is fairly clear, even though some have him down as an ESTP)
Kendrick Lamar - INFP (CT thinks he's an ISFJ too, again I disagree)
Future - ISFP (it's easy to see him as ESTP, but he's clearly introverted and his lyrics are more Fi than Ti)
J Cole - ISTJ (he's not an INTJ. This is what an ISTJ rapper looks like)
Nicki Minaj - ESFP
Iggy Azalea - ESTP
Ty Dolla $ign - ESFP
Wiz Khalifa - ESTP
Travis $cott - INFP
Kid Cudi - INFP
Mac Miller - ENTP
Danny Brown - ENTP
Kevin Abstract - ISFP
A$AP Rocky - ESFP
Tyler, The Creator - ESFP
Young Thug - ENFP
YG - ESTP (I could also see ESTJ)
French Montana - ESTP
21 Savage - ISTP (duh)
Big Sean - ESFP (also duh)
Lil Uzi Vert - ESFP
Playboi Carti - ISTP
Joey Bada$$ - INTJ (clearly more Ni than most rappers supposed to be INxJ)
Lil Yachty - ESFP (candy, rainbows, sunshine, money, drugs, friends)
Vince Staples - ISTP (I'd be interested if anyone saw him differently)
Jimi Tents - INFJ (rare example of an INFJ rapper, imo)
DRAM - ESFP
Lil Aaron - ISFP
Yung Lean - ISFP
Childish Gambino - ENFP (his 2016 album was especially ENFP-ish lmao)
Vic Mensa - ENFJ? He's got such a varied persona it's hard to say
Kamaiyah - ESFJ (very Fe and lots of Si-esque lyrics)
The Weeknd - ISFP (of course)
Kyle - ESFJ
G-Eazy - ENTJ
Gucci Mane - ESTP
Killer Mike - ENTJ
El-P - INTJ
Chance The Rapper - ENFJ (Fe-Ni-Se-Ti just makes so much sense as his function order)
Swae Lee - ESFP
Slim Jxmmi - ESTP
2 Chainz - ENTP (seems ESTP, but there's a lot of Ne to his lyrics)
Tyga - ESTP (sorry, ESTPs)
Lupe Fiasco - ENFJ (pretty evident)
Wale - ESFJ (seems kind of like an unhealthy ESFJ)
Freddie Gibbs - ENTP (duh)
Meek Mill - ESTJ
Big KRIT - ENTJ
Lil B - ESFP
Macklemore - ESFP
ScHoolboy Q - ESTP
Ab-Soul - INTJ
Logic - ISFJ (clearly a lot of Ti and Fe, my guess is ISFJ but I'm not certain on this one)
Action Bronson - ENTP
Kevin Gates - ESTJ
Denzel Curry - ENTJ
Kodak Black - ESTP
Quavo - ESTP
Jidenna - ENTJ (long live the chief)
6LACK - INTJ
Stormzy - ESTP
Skepta - ESTP
Father - ENTP (probably the most ENTP rapper around)
Earl Sweatshirt - INTP (because what else?)
Bobby Raps - INFP
Russ - INTJ
Riz-MC - INTJ
Heems - ENTP
Kodie Shane - ESFP
Chief Keef - ESTP
Lil Peep - INFP
Lil Pump - DUMBASS
Desiigner - ESFP
Lil Dicky - ENTP
Amine - ENFP
Ugly God - ESTP
XXXTentacion - ISFP (I could definitely see INTJ. He's an introvert who uses Fi, Te, Se and Ni)


I have no idea what Post Malone's type is. Anyway, guess away.
I don't understand:
Logic- isfj
Amine- Enfp
6lack - intj

Ive spent a huge amount studying Tyler and i strongly find him being an S completely outrageous. He is definetely N and i agree with him being an ENFP. Just because he has amazing taste in fashion and he loves colours, that doesnt mean he cant do that with an intuitive process. That would be just a stupid stereotype, needless to say that no type is disadvantaged over the other.
I think his Ne is over the roof and you can see that in every interview and in all his art.

Kendrick Lamar seems more ENFP to me but idk.
Tyler seems ENFP as well. Joey Bada$$ seems kinda INFJ to me.

But that's just how I see them.
Other than that, most of these seem pretty correct to me, tbh.
I was fooled too by Kendrick so I feel you but after you analyze him more in his interviews and music Kendrick Lamar is INFP actually, he acts like an ENFP and tricks you but he's really an extroverted INFP.
