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 came to light despite the success of Carolina rappers Petey Pablo, the group Little Brother, or the late rising star Speaker Knockerz.

Places like Columbia had an underground rap scene, with the likes of Lil Ru, 48 Yatti, and numerous others, while the city of Charlotte did managed to have some artists that were exposed to the in-crowds of the music industry, like Banknote Mitch, but never had a chance to reach nationwide stardom.  Basically no city until recently has had the opportunity for rappers from Carolina to be brought into the limelight and reach national success.

With cities like Columbia, South Carolina and Charlotte, Raleigh, and Fayetteville, all of North Carolina, it is not hard to find talented Carolina rappers, all is needed is an opportunity.  With Da Baby from Charlotte and J Cole from Fayetteville that opportunity has been occurring with doors opening for many artists as the two states’ top artists have been exposing what North Carolina and South Carolina rappers and hip hop artists actually consists of.

With dozens of artists, diversity of styles and type of rap is often displayed.  From your conscious and soulful Carolina rappers to female artists representing for the ladies to the typical trap and street rap, there is something for everybody in the Carolinas music scene and the list below will prove just such.
