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 who 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.

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, who was the foundation of Slim Thug and J Dawg, and the true forefather of J. Prince and his imprint Rap-A-Lot Records.

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