Baton Rouge Rappers
List of the Top Baton Rouge Rap Artists
Since the mid 2000s, Baton Rouge rappers have been making a major impact in the music industry, eventually becoming leaders of the rap game. For years the city of New Orleans had overshadowed Baton Rouge, whether it was mainstream artists of No Limit and Cash Money or New Orleans’ top underground artists that had made a name for themselves regionally.
There was a movement of artists like C-Loc, Max Minelli, and Young Breed, a movement that actually introduced the world to Boosie with his debut album of Youngest of the Camp. When Pimp C and two soon to be music executives from Baton Rouge, Mel and Turk, linked up and created Trill Entertainment the tides began to turn. Without a doubt, the late 2000s Trill Ent. Had the game on lock. With a fresh new sound and artists, Boosie, Webbie, Mouse on the Track, Foxx, and Lil Phat were consistently releasing quality music.
With the light on Baton Rouge thanks to Boosie and Webbie, as well the rest of Trill Entertainment, other artists from the city began to emerge, artists like Lil Handy or Nussie. Now, for over a decade the number one rap artists either resided in Baton Rouge or originally came from the city. First with Boosie and Webbie, then followed by Kevin Gates, NBA Youngboy, Da Real Gee Money, and continuing into the 2020s with Fredo Bang. As we speak Baton Rouge is still on top and is one of the south’s leading hip hop markets.
