List of the Best French Rappers

With French rappers being located in one of the most prominent countries in the world it should come to no surprise that there is a booming music scene that is probably #1 in Europe, especially as France is one of the Europe’s most diverse countries and has adopted numerous cultures, which is seen within French hip hop.

Soon after the development of hip hop took the United States by storm the movement expanded into Europe during the 1980s, with one of the first places being the country of France.  Hit French hip hop producer and disc jockey Dee Nasty and artists like MC Solaar can be credited to starting one of Europe’s first dominant hip hop scene that has become arguably the largest hip hop market in Europe, and outside the U.S.

As years went on the popularity grew into a mega machine producing hundreds of top artists and thousands of hits songs.  While the 1990s was a true golden era for French hip hop with the emergence of dozens of rap artists and the genre truly solidifying itself within France,  the current era has expanded the popularity to being the most popular genre of music in France with a lineup of over one hundred French rappers that have easily established themselves in the music industry.

It seems only right that a country as iconic as France has become a staple for European hip hop. The diversity within the borders of France is widely shown throughout the French hip hop scene, from African artists to Arab artists to white artists, all having backgrounds and cultures from all over the world displayed through their music.  As mentioned, the roster of French rappers is extensive, but the list below will just breakdown the top 50 French rappers, artists with the most streams and views and followers.
