Check out 5 of the music industry's most prom ready rappers that are worth bypassing your butterflies to get the guts to ask them to prom.


Prom is one of the most memorable events of a lifetime. The coming of age, teenage dream is a stand out because it is created with careful strategy. From finding the perfect dress to getting your hair and makeup just right, this big night out is pretty major. But, for many, the most important step in prom planning is finding a dream date. Instead of hoping for the right guy to ask you to join him for the special occasion, what if you could flip the script and invite your celebrity crush to the main event?

Let "luck be a lady" on prom night, and check out 5 of the music industry's most prom ready rappers that are worth bypassing your butterflies to get the guts to ask them to prom.

The Canadian cutie will be the best prom date you ever had. As a budding style stud, the 6-foot charmer has proven that dressing up suits him well on the April 2012 cover of GQ magazine. His good guy image coupled with his mild, mischievous side, makes him both parent and prom date approved. As he puts on your corsage, he'll hum a melodic tune that is just right for the moment, but as you both speed away in his luxury car, he'll blast "The Motto" (YOLO) to get the party started because "You Only Live Once".

As a member of Hip Hop royalty (his father is legendary rapper Joseph "Reverend Run" Simmons of rap group RUN DMC and his uncle is music mogul Russell Simmons), Diggy is guaranteed to be prom prince. Aside from his irresistible smile, respectable and well mannered adds to his resume of date-worthy qualities, which means your parents may extend your curfew because they can trust the jet-setter to be a gentleman. The New Jersey native will also be very loyal because he knows that all the other girls competing for his attention on the dance floor, "they don't do it like" you.

Justin may have a celebrity girlfriend (Selena Gomez) and millions of screaming female fans, but all those awesome obstacles define why he would be the ultimate prom date. His transition from his signature swooped hair to a shorter cropped cut and from singing to dabbling in rapping shows that he embraces change, which can come in handy when you chose a prom color theme other than purple (his favorite hue). The talented teen can also have his people send over his popular perfume and OPI nail polish to make sure you look like his "Favorite Girl."

Will and Jada Smith's handsome son is simply young, fly and fresh. The California cutie is guaranteed to have the best tux at the dance and he'll probably swag it out with some cool sneakers. There's no doubt that the actor turned rapper will pick you up on time. By cutting off his long locks – he shrunk his getting dressed time in half. And since he's best friends with Justin Bieber, you can hook your BFF up with JB for a prom double date. Your crew is sure to get paparazzi coverage in your favorite teen magazines – the best prom photos EVER!

The Young Money signee stays as "turnt up" as his sky high hairstyle. Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga will all show up for a surprise performance, which will make you go down in prom history. Although he's affiliated with one of the most successful hip hop labels, the YMCMB star remains humble and surprisingly sweet. He'll dance with you all night and hold you close as his slow song "Love Affair" plays on the sound system.
