List of the Top Rappers from Kentucky

In a southern state that has been in the shadows, overcast by larger markets, Kentucky rappers have developed a small but recognizable rap scene, with artists like Jack Harlow, 2KBABY, and EST Gee leading the way.

Despite being the home to some of the nation’s top college basketball programs through the universities of Louisville and Kentucky, the Kentucky Derby, and the state’s largest city of Louisville, the state of Kentucky has received little to no recognition. This has recently changed with the emergence hip-hop’s hottest artists in the game, primarily Louisville, Kentucky rappers Jack Harlow and EST Gee.

The birthplace of Bryson Tiller, legendary rap group Nappy Roots, and the late successful singer and songwriter Static Major, who worked with numerous top industry artists from Aaliyah to Lil Wayne. There has always been musical talent within the borders of Kentucky.

Today’s Top Kentucky Rappers

As of now, one of the hottest rappers in the industry has been without a doubt Jack Harlow. Winning the heart of millions of fans, no one can deny the talent of Jack Harlow, viewing his early days in hip-hop around 2017 and witnessing his rise over the years, he has managed to truly become an icon of today’s pop culture.

What was once one of the fastest rising street rappers, EST Gee has now landed himself in the conversation as the top southern rapper.  Since entering the game with the song “Stains,” EST Gee has kept feeding the streets with quality music with no end in sight.  Rounding out the top three is the melodic rapper 2KBaby.  No matter who you are or where you are from, his music has touched thousands of listeners, especially with songs like “Old Streets,” “Betta,” and “Old Soul”, the pain that 2KBaby expresses through his music has elevated him to speakers of every demographic of rap fans.

Those three are the faces of Kentucky’s rap scene, which is mostly based in Louisville with a small presence in places like Lexington, Bowling Green, Paducah, and in northern Kentucky. From the veterans like The Homies and Troy Money, have been carrying Kentucky in hip-hop for a number of years, to the rise of the next generation of Kentucky rappers like Lil 30, E The Profit, WunTayk Timmy, HBlocc Duke, and several others, Kentucky is next up.
