List of the Top Chicago Rappers

Before the success of Chief Keef, surprisingly the Chicago hip hop scene was not as popular as it is today with many other cities, many much smaller than the city of Chicago, having a bigger presence in the country’s rap scene.  

The only true mainstays of Chicago rappers were the likes of Kanye West, Common, Twista, Do or Die, Crucial Conflict and a few others that have all made the national stage well before the generation of the 2010s.  Other well respected top Chicago rappers over the years have included Bump J, Bo Deal, JoJo Capone, LEP Bogus Boys and a few others who have also paved the way for the younger generation and held the city down for a time being, and some are still around.

Sadly, many of the best Chicago rappers and somewhat pioneers of the new Chicago wave, that began during the 2010s, have passed away or are currently incarcerated, but there is still a large number of Chicago rap artists who have millions of fans.  Below is the top Chicago rappers list that shows the very best artists coming out of the Windy City and who have made it well pass the local stage of the city and into the national light.
