Baltimore Rappers

List of Top Rappers from Baltimore

With exception to 2Pac, who spent a handful of his adolescent years in the city of Baltimore, even attending local schools, many are not too familiar with rappers from Baltimore, but the city has been home to some of the best underground rappers on the East Coast.

Baltimore rappers like Kraze, Big Rob & Lil Sprout, Infinite Description, Silouette, Tim Trees, Bossman, Mully Man, Pen Powz, Norm Skola, Mr Ruckuz, or Amp Boogie are just a few of the top artists of Baltimore’s hip-hop early days, primarily during the 1990s and 2000s.

Today’s Top Rappers from Baltimore

Today’s lineup of top Baltimore rappers has now created a buzz well outside of the city.  Beginning with the rap group Peso Da Mafia, becoming one of the first faces of today’s generation of Baltimore hip-hop, the melodic versatile artist Shordie Shordie quickly became a major figure among the DMV and the East Coast’s rap scene. While the former Peso Da Mafia member rise was swift, Deetranada also grinded her way into not becoming one of the major contributors of Baltimore’s rap scene, but also placed herself in the conversation as one of top rising female hip-hop artists.

Local legends and rappers from Baltimore like Young Moose persisting in music despite the local environment causing many obstacles. The “How to Rob” rapper Bandhunta Izzy, remaining steady in the rap game since debuting during the late 2010s as one of the top-tier rappers. YBS Skola extending his career from 2016’s “Shining” to his most recent hit, 2022’s “I Be Trippin.” YG Teck crossing into other markets with his work with top nationwide rap artists like Pooh Shiesty, Mozzy and Lil Poppa.

Veteran Baltimore rappers like Tate Kobang, known for the 2015 hit “Banks Roll,” and President Davo, known for the 2014 hit “I Don’t Wanna Be a Playa” are keeping up with many of the newcomers, like Money Jake, Roddy Rackzz, TMCTheDon, and OTR Chaz, all who began to make a name for themselves during 2018 and 2019.

While through unfortunate events, rappers like YGG Tay, Lor X, and several other artists’ careers have come to an abrupt end, or placed on pause, the atmosphere of Baltimore has helped a great number of artists to become the stars that they are today with the city’s influence, bringing rappers from Baltimore to the forefront of the East Coast and DMV hip-hop scene.
