Top St Louis Rappers

List of Top Rappers from St Louis

When most people think about the city of St Louis, or St Louis rappers in general, most always think of Nelly and the St Lunatics, along with Chingy, J Kwon (“Tipsy”), and Huey (“Pop, Lock & Drop It”). While Nelly and Chingy stand at the top, the city of St. Louis has always had a number of top local and regional rappers from St Louis that have included artists like Da Hol 9, Sylk Smoove, Out of Order, Pretty Willie, Raw Reese, Spaide Ripper, Lil St. Louis, and Ruka Puff.

Alongside the artists, the city has produced numerous classic St Louis rap songs, like “My Life Is Like a Whirlwind” (Taylor Made), “Mobb Out” (KoKo), “Nina Pop” (Da Hol 9), “Nikki” (JMC & Ronin), “Money Snap” (Young Beano), “Pop One” (Vic Damone), “Da County Mane” (County Brown), “So Serious” (All Star), “Ain’t No B**** In Me” (Da Bangaz), or “Catch 22” (Abyss).

St. Louis has always been a fast paced city, which has always fit the music that has been created. Many of the locals may remember the days of the nightclubs on the East Side, like Club Casino (The Beno), Pink Slip (The Slip), and Club Monastery (The Mono). For the younger crowds, many can remember about their school days at the local skate rinks, like Saints and the Palace, or at teen clubs like Limelight. Basically, the hip-hop scene of St. Louis during the 2000s was a reflection of the times in the city.

Today’s Top St Louis Rappers

Today, the city of St Louis has entered into a new era of hip hop, an era that is showcasing and representing another side of St. Louis. St. Louis rappers like Smino separating themselves from the stagnant rap game of similarities, and providing listeners with a more soulful sound. Big Boss Vette providing an authentic representation for today’s generation of women. 30 Deep Grimeyy immediately grabbing everyone’s attention upon his arrival into hip hop, especially with songs like “Dead Goofies.” Nuski2Squad becoming unstoppable, especially with hits like “Live On (Thuggin Days)” and linking up with numerous top rappers, like Yungeen Ace, G Herbo, Quando Rondo, and Toosii.

While the city has been producing its share of national artists, the list of local and regional St Louis rappers is just as talented. The raunchiness of Sexyy Red, the respect from the streets of rappers like AMR Dee Huncho and LA4ss, the heartfelt music of 5ive, or the hardcore styles of NWM Cee Murdaa leads St. Louis in the running for the top spot among Midwest hip-hop. Much credit for today’s rap scene of St. Louis goes to the once trio and now duo of 3 Problems, who are continuing their legacy after becoming one of the very first rap artists of today’s era to make a name for themselves.

With respectable artists like Rahli and Bad Business Junior making waves through the industry, or rappers like BigBuckz Von and Jizzle Buckz tearing up the city, or artists like Day1ss and Benji Brothers building their own unique brand of music, St. Louis rap and hip hop music is in a position like never before. Similar to how the 2000s had a number of artists like the St. Lunatics, Chingy, and J Kwon, alongside local and regional rappers like Da Hol 9, the 2020s has also grown a healthy lineup of rap artists.
