Top Los Angeles Rappers
List of the Best Rappers from Los Rappers
In one of the country’s largest markets, Los Angeles rappers have played a major role in the global growth of rap music. Following the success of New York City, the West Coast rap scene began to emerge. The start of the Los Angeles rap scene began with the likes of Ice T, King T and NWA, which introduced the world to Eazy-E, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
Following his time with NWA, Dr. Dre helped expand West Coast hip hop through the rise of Death Row Records. From classical albums like The Chronic, Dogg Food, Doggystyle, and All Eyez On Me, to the introduction of legendary artists like Snoop Dogg, along with the already established 2pac, Death Row’s stranglehold on the rap game led to the dominance of West Coast hip hop.
Even though Dr. Dre was always viewed as the top producer that hailed from the Los Angeles region, producers like DJ Battlecat, Daz Dillinger, Soopafly, Sir Jinx, DJ Quik, DJ Pooh, and LT Huton must also be considered as some of the greatest hip hop producers to ever come out of the West Coast.
Another era of Los Angeles hip hop was the G Funk and Gangster Rap era, led by local street artists like Sinister, South Central Cartel, New Breed Hustlas, KAM, CJ Mac, and too many others to name. This generation of Los Angeles rappers combined rap music with Los Angeles County’s street culture, creating one of the most memorable times in hip hop.
Today’s Generation of Rappers from Los Angeles
There was an extensive period when West Coast hip-hop was dormant, with exception to The Game. This changed following the arrival of the 2010s with Kendrick Lamar’s classic Good Kid, MAAD City and YG‘s hit single “My N***a,” bringing the spotlight back onto the West Coast.
The emergence of L.A. in today’s hip-hop was driven by Top Dawg Entertainment with Kendrick, Jay Rock, and Schoolboy Q. Nipsey Hussle‘s gradual rise in the industry leading to the release one of the greatest rap albums, Victory Lap. Soon enough, the arrival of hip-hop megastars Roddy Ricch and Baby Keem, while unmatched artists like Vince Staple, D Smoke, or Westside Boogie staying true to themselves and their own individualistic styles of hip-hop.
Rappers like Blueface, O3 Greedo, and Drakeo the Ruler have been changing the rap game and impacting numerous local and regional styles of hip-hop. OT Genasis who made an entrance in rap with the controversial song “CoCo” and sustained his presence with hit songs like “Cut It”. G Perico offering a true portrayal of L.A., while Dom Kennedy showcases the cool and laid styles and player ways of a real Los Angeles native.
From Blxst and Buddy‘s versatility of soft melodies and rap lyrics to numerous up and coming that already established themselves in L.A. and are now making waves out of the city, like Kalan.frfr, Rucci, Bravo The Bagchaser, and 1TakeJay. Now, rappers from Los Angeles are flourishing more than ever.
