The Juno Award for Rap Recording of the Year has been awarded since 1991, and is awarded for the best rap album in Canada. It was awarded under the title Best Rap Recording from 1993 to 2002.[1]

Before 1999, because of the relatively limited commercial visibility of Canadian hip hop, the award was presented the evening before the main Juno Award ceremony, along with the untelevised technical and industry insider awards. In 1998, Rascalz won the award, but claiming racism as a factor in the award's scheduling, refused to accept it.[2] The Junos moved the award to the main ceremony the following year.

Historically, the award was sometimes presented to individual singles instead of full albums. The last standalone single to win the award was Rascalz' "Northern Touch" in 1999.
