German Hip Hop

List of the Top German Rappers

In one of Europe’s most prominent countries resides German hip hop that has been one of the continent’s oldest and most iconic hip hop and rap scenes to date.  Since the 1980s German rappers have been growing a genre that has totally dominated every genre of music within Germany, from pop music to rock music.

In cities all around the country, German rappers have been establishing themselves, unlike other European rap scenes where hip hop seems to be only based in a few cities that are the main metropolitan areas.  With German hip hop being so widespread, rap music has been very accessible.  With its accessibility the ability for the genre to grow has been quite easy as Germany has the largest lineup of rappers in Europe.

A roster of German rappers that began its development during the 1980s with likes of Advanced Chemistry, Cora E., Stieber Twins, Massive Töne, Too Strong, and DJ Stylewarz.  Continuing into the 1990s with German rap artists like Die Fantastischen Vier, MC Rene, Rödelheim Hartreim Projekt (RHP), Ferris MC, Anarchist Academy, Eins Zwo, No Remorze, Fresh Familee, Dynamite Deluxe and numerous others.

By the 2000s, the German hip hop scene was truly established and expanded its market to other places outside of Germany. As we enter the 2020s, German hip hop has reached a level never seen before with a long list of Europe’s top rap artists.

Artists like Capital Bra, one of Europe’s most accomplished with numerous gold and platinum selling albums and a handful of award nominations.  Mero, Germany’s fastest rising star since his release of the 2018 hit “Baller Ios.”  RAF Camora, an artist with the most extensive catalog of classic albums and hit songs. Gzuz and BonezMC, award wining fan favorites of the legendary hip hop group 187 Strassenbande.  Ufo361, one of Germany’s most talented proven by having every album charting number one.  Farid Bang, another rap veteran of over ten years whose talent is second to none. Bushido, a living legend that still has a strong presence among German rappers.

The list continues as the German hip hop scene is among the world’s most diverse with a lineup of over 30 top German rappers, all equally talented.  From male to female artists, from artists who are native to Germany to artists who have migrated to Germany as children, German rap music is easily one of Europe’s, and the world’s, most influential rap scene despite that there are only a few German speaking countries in the world.
