List of America’s Top Asian Rap Artists

Asian rappers, who are mostly based on the West Coast with a handful located in New York and other East Coast cities, do not have much of history within the rap industry but are part of a growing population of rap and hip-hop within the global stage, especially as Asian American rappers are becoming more respected as equals and Asian hip hop scenes are becoming more established in various countries across Asia.

From East Asia’s Japan and South Korea to Southeast Asia’s Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Philippines, there are hundreds of Asian rappers across the globe, with many becoming international stars. While numerous Asian countries are beginning to thrive within the international hip hop scene, Asian American rappers are also starting to rise to the top of the rap game in America.

Communities of Southern California in cities like Los Angeles and San Diego or Northern California’s Bay Area and Central Valley, which are regions with large Asian populations that are often intertwined with local urban and street cultures.  By adopting these cultures, many have become part of the local rap and hip hop scenes, eventually leading to a rise in hip hop music among Asian rappers in America.

Today’s Top Asian Rappers

Showcasing their own versions of American culture and traditions through their music, Asian hip hop artists have developed a sizeable lineup of artists from places like California, New York, and even Washington, Ohio, Florida, and Philadelphia.  While many have ties to other Asian rap markets in different parts of the world, most have solidified themselves a position in the American rap scene.

While years ago rappers like Jin Gates, Yung Jae, Russ Coson, Thai VG, Shotta Spence (Spence Lee), or Heartbreaka were leading the way, with many remaining active today, there has been a new generation to erupt.

This includes Killy, who has become one of Canada’s top rappers. MBNel, who is at the forefront of hip-hop music for Northern California and Central Valley, while being the face of Stockton, CA. $tupid Young, whose grind has placed him among the conversation for top rappers out of Los Angeles County, originally hailing from Long Beach. KiD Trunks, South Florida’s own who has been able to shine through the crowded rap scene of Broward County.
