List of Best Rappers from Kansas City

In the heart of the Midwest resides a city that has produced a handful of rappers from Kansas City.  A city with its own style, persona, and culture there is not a place in the country that can be compared to the city known as Killa City.  Not the largest city, with heart of the community along Prospect Ave. on the East Side and South Side, along with Kansas City, Kansas neighborhoods, but the city is still large enough to produce a rap scene and to be a market for hip hop music. 

Long before the rise of Kansas City rappers, and the start of hip hop music in general, music within the city’s black and urban community was based around jazz and blues music around the historic area of 18th and Vine.  Fast forwarding decades later, music for the community east of Troost Avenue, the city’s historical racial dividing line, is centered solely around rap music.  Some of the earlier pioneers of the Kansas City hip hop scene were artists like Fat Tone, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Ghetto Kaos, Skatterman, Snug Brim, Rich The Factor, Rondoe, The Popper, and many more that have paved the way for today’s artists of that have been representing the current movement of Kansas City rappers. 

The biggest artist to truly represent Kansas City has always been Tech N9ne.  From the heart of the city’s South Side, Tech N9ne begun his career as a true street artist and became regionally known after the club hit “Let’s Get F***ed Up” with 57th Street Rogue Dog Villains came out.  Eventually Tech N9ne would surpass the local market and internationally known artist, along with his Strange Music brand.  While Tech N9ne has grown from just being locally, his music and his fanbase seemed to be quite different than your typical hip hop and rap music fans.  Historically, Kansas City has always had ties to the Bay Area, especially Bay Area hip hop, leading to an influence within the local community and rap scene.

Beginning with artists like Young Devi D, Dellio, Dre Youngin, and a handful of others the new generation of Kansas City rappers that began during the mid-2010s and has continued to expand year after year.  The light is far from being shed on Kansas City but listening to the local rap scene you will see and hear the potential.
