Top Carolina Rappers

List of the Best Rappers from North and South Carolina

From the larger cities of North Carolina to the smaller towns in South Carolina, the Carolina hip hop scene has never truly come to light despite the success of Carolina rappers like Petey Pablo, the group Little Brother, or even the late rising star Speaker Knockerz. 

Fortunately, the change for hip hop in Carolina has finally arrived through artists hailing from cities like Columbia, South Carolina or Charlotte, Raleigh, and Fayetteville of North Carolina, making it not hard to find talented Carolina rappers.  All that was needed was the opportunity.  Today, there opportunity has led to dozens of artists to create and develop a roster and lineup of a diverse rap scene that consists different styles and different forms of hip hop music.

The roster of top Carolina rappers includes artists like Da Baby.  Since rebranding himself from Baby Jesus, Da Baby has arguably become one of the world’s top rap stars.  A roster that also includes hip hop’s most artistic artist in J. Cole, the rap game’s fastest rising artist in Morray, one of the world’s most prominent female artist in Renni Rucci and many more.  From the consistency and talent of Toosii that has led him to be one the top southern rappers to the energy and the liveliness of Stunna 4 Vegas to the street savviness of Blacc Zacc, the Carolina rap scene should the last market to look over.

With rap music being the world’s top genre and the combination of the two states of North Carolina and South Carolina having one of the country’s largest population pockets all makes sense of the recent rise of Carolina rappers.  A roster that includes both male and female artists, together with a various forms and genres of hip hop, easily amounts to be one of the top rap regions in the country.  To conclude, below is a list of the top 20 Carolina rappers with a list of honorable mentions and the top Carolina rap YouTube channels.
