The Top Rappers from Houston

The legendary city of Houston has produced a number of artist that will go down in history as Houston hip hop pioneers and helped expand rap music within the south.  From the numerous Houston rappers in the legendary Screwed Up Click to the Geto Boys with Scarface to the Swisha House who brought the light to the city during the 2000s of the “Still Tippin'” era, Houston’s rap scene has contributed much to southern music.

While the history of Houston is mostly spotlighted on DJ Screw of the South Side, who helped pioneer various artists like Lil Keke, Big Moe, Fat Pat, Big Hawk, Lil Flip, Z-Ro, and many more, and DJ Michael “5000” Watts of the North Side, the foundation of Slim Thug and J Dawg, the true beginning was with J. Prince and Rap-A-Lot.

Fast forwarding to over 20 years into the present day, the new generation of Houston rappers are making a name for themselves, while some of the OG’s of the Houston rap game are still relevant in the game and continuing their legacy.
