List of the Best Rappers from Cleveland

Cleveland rappers have for long been recognized on the outside as being the hometown of the legendary group of Cleveland Hip Hop artists Bone Thugs N Harmony.  While there were other rappers from Cleveland like Ray Cash, Chip Tha Ripper, Ray Jr. or even much larger artists like Kid Cudi, lately Cleveland rappers have not made it to the national stage other than Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who now seems to be more of a rock and roll star than an actual hip hop artist.

Currently, there are only a small number of rappers from Cleveland that have made their way to the spotlight outside of one of Ohio’s largest cities.  With LeBron James leaving the Cavaliers, the Cleveland hip hop scene is ready to be the new light of the city by drawing national attention with multiple talented Cleveland hip hop and rap artists.

At the very top of the list of Cleveland rappers is East Cleveland’s own Doe Boy.  Without a doubt he is the most known out of the city, especially since linking with Future and his Freebandz brand.  One rising artist was Q Moneyy, but unfortunately legal troubles has lead his rap career to a halt.  Another artist with similarities was Lil Cray whose rising career came to pause after incarceration, but now released it seems that he is starting where he left off.

Also within the roster of rappers from Cleveland are a handful of veterans in music and in the city, like EC Marv, Will The General, Pooh Gutta, and a few others, mixed in with some newcomers, artists like Ty Bri and YSN Flow, who have been on a swift rise and have surpassed local recognition.

In all, the list below gives a great example of the true Cleveland hip hop scene of top rappers from Cleveland with some that are national artists that are familiar faces to the outside world, while other Cleveland rappers are more underground or only locally and regionally known, but are on a rise and are considered to be more than just up and coming.
