So I'm the vocalist for my cover band. I can't sing (I have no idea why they want me as vocalist), so I rap. They think I'm good, but I beg to differ.

Anyways, I digress. In the past, we've played the following songs:
-"Take The Power Back" by Rage Against The Machine (RATM)
-"Boom" by P.O.D.
-"Know Your Enemy" by RATM
-"Guerilla Radio" by RATM

Anything like these songs are good. Unfortunately, it can't have too much swearing (but I'm not afraid to drop the f-bomb every once in a while, school be damned).

I was thinking something from Linkin Park, with very little singing and all rapping (preferably, a bit of singing is okay).

I don't think any rap metal would include double-bass drumming, but our drummer can't do that. Our bassist and guitarist are incredible, so don't worry about technicality in those areas.

Tl;dr

Need suggestions for rap metal covers. Not too much swearing. No singing.

You could ofcourse do an ACDC song and rap the lyrics.

See: Santana's Rock Classics album: Back in Black(featuring Nas)

Dude, check out this out. I don't know if your guitarist can pull anything Guthrie Govan but he can try.

Really good musicians with a good rapper.

Yeah, I know.

Some Roots would also be good choice.
