With Diddy constantly changing his rap name, you might think all the good ones have already been used. But no: There are an awful lot of awesome pseudonyms still left, and Jesse Gissen lists his favorites on XXL:

  • Sirius Black: “This bad ass dude from the Harry Potter series is known for practicing black magic, breaking out of prison and being able to turn into a werewolf. Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than this.”

  • Sid Vicious: He might be dead, but the infamous punk rocker from the Sex Pistols could be reincarnated as a rapper. Apparently, there are already a few Kid Viciouses out there.
  • Apollo Creed: Surely some Philly rapper wants to pay homage to this boxer from the Rocky films.
  • Sergeant Slaughter: Whether you’re naming yourself after the wrestler or the GI Joe character, either way you have a built-in beef with rapper Slaughterhouse. It’s perfect!
