Top Japanese Rappers:
List of the Best Japanese Hip Hop Artists
Japanese hip hop is located in eastern Asia within a nation that has created a music scene that has produced a large roster of talented Japanese rappers that have been slowly creating the number one rap scene within the Asian hip hop market.
One of the world’s most famously known countries has for long been known for the city of Tokyo and its local attractions, the traditional dish of Sushi, the television genre of Anime, and numerous other unique cultures and traditions, will also soon be recognized for something else, hip hop music through Japan’s large lineup of top Japanese rap artists.
Japanese hip hop can be dated back to the 1980s as the opportunity to view American culture through multiple television and film outlets led to the embracement within Japanese culture, but only on a small scale. Japanese rap music can credit to its introduction into Japan from the likes of Hiroshi Fujiwar, who is also known for pioneering streetwear into Japan and viewed as one of the lead influencers of Japanese pop and urban culture.
Some of the true Japanese rappers that are pioneers of Japan’s hip hop scene and opened the doors and set the standard for rap music in Japan are artists like Seiko Ito, Yann Tomita, Rhymester, Scha Dara Parr, King Giddra, Buddha Brand, and a handful of other hip hop artists.
Currently, there are plenty of former Japanese rappers that are now in their 40s and 50s that helped paved the way for today’s generation as dozens of Japanese rap artists helped with the growth of hip hop music during the 1990s. Today’s generation has done nothing but continue the tradition of Japanese rap culture and has intertwined the country’s rap movement with Japanese culture at a level never before seen.
