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 hip hop and the music industry. Eventually, rap artists from Louisiana’ captial city became leaders in 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, with a fresh new sound, Trill Ent. had the game on lock.

The spotlight began shining on Baton Rouge thanks to the likes of Boosie and Webbie, along with the rest of Trill Entertainment, and not to leave out Baton Rouge rappers like Lil Handy, Lil Cali, or Nussie who became respected locally and regionally. Now, for over a decade the number one rap artists in hip-hop have hailed from the city of Baton Rouge.

Today’s Baton Rouge Rappers

NBA YoungBoy, who rose to fame with his popular track “No Smoke”, has become the voice of the streets and a prominent figure in the hip-hop industry without much advertising. Kevin Gates, one of hip-hop’s top personalities, is also recognized for his versatility in music, ranging from strong and gritty lyrics to melodic compositions. Boosie Badazz has remained steady in the rap scene since the early 2000s, continuing to remain relevant as many have fallen off or switched ventures.

Baton Rouge’s rap scene has since undergone a transition from the Trill Ent. era thanks to rappers like TEC, Mista Cain, and a few others that began during the early 2010s. This was followed by the rise of the late Da Real Gee Money, and also the emergence of Fredo Bang, who became the next heavyweight from the city. Up and coming artists, including TG Kommas, Bway Yungy, OBN Jay, and Kayykilo, are now being recognized as the future of hip-hop, solidifying Baton Rouge’s position in the music industry.
