Top Los Angeles Rappers
List of the Top 30 Best Rappers from L.A.
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, in which is where hip hop was created, the West Coast rap scene began to emerged. 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, all would later have their own independent success.
Following his time with NWA, Dr. Dre helped expand the popularity of 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 have to 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.
While the West Coast had its moment of being the most popular rap scene in the country, there was a time when nobody was paying attention to rap music coming from Los Angeles, with exception to The Game being the only relevant artist for years.
The arrival of the 2010s with Kendrick Lamar’s classic Good Kid, MAAD City and YG’s hit single “My N***a,” fans were beginning to pay attention to the Los Angeles rap scene as artists who have been grinding for years began to emerge on top of the rap game. Now, Los Angeles rap music is booming like never before and is clearly one of the world’s leading hip hop scenes.
