Albania Hip Hop: List of the Top Albanian Rap Artists
Located in the Balkans is a country that has seen a rise of the local Albanian Hip Hop scene that consists of a large lineup of talented Albanian rappers, whether hailing from Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia or are located in some other country within Europe, preferably Southeast Europe.
With an estimation of anywhere between 3 to 5 million Albanians living across the globe, one would expect that more than a handful would adopt the Hip Hop culture. The actual start date for Albanian rappers may be unknown, but some of the very first Albanian hip hop artists started their careers and released their first projects during the 1990s.
With war and conflict occurring in the Balkans during the early 1990s, many Albanians fled their war-torn country and relocated into various European countries or into the United States. During their time in the United States many younger Albanians could have easily grew a likening towards American culture, especially as the majority lived in New York City, which is the mecca of Hip Hop.
Not until the 2000s, did the era of the true emergence of Albanian rappers began to truly form. Some of the first Albanian hip hop artists were the likes of Unikkatil, Banda Butuesi, Rimi Rruges, Presioni, Lyrical Son and a few others.
In a growing market of Balkan hip hop, Albanian rap artists have been holding their own. While there are artists who imitate or have similar sound to American rap music, much of the hip hop music from Albania has been embraced by their own culture with their own specific sound. Surprisingly, the Balkans are slowly becoming Europe’s number one hip hop scene and Albanian rap artists are some of the region’s biggest contributors.
