Top Los Angeles Rappers

Next To Blow

In one of the country’s largest markets, Los Angeles rappers have played a major role in the rap industry.  After following the success of New York City, in which where Hip Hop was created at, the West Coast hip hop scene emerged.

The start of 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, who would all later have their own independent success.

Dr. Dre, along with Death Row, further the growth of West Coast hip hop with 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, Death Row’s stranglehold on the rap game led to the dominance of the West Coast.

While 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, before getting involved with movies and screenwriting, and LT Huton have to be considered as some of the greatest hip hop producers to ever come out of the West Coast.

The G Funk and Gangster Rap era, when local street artist like Sinister, South Central Cartel, New Breed Hustlas, KAM, CJ Mac, and too many others to name, combined with Los Angeles County’s culture of Bloods and Crips was a generation of hip hop that would be forever memorable.

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 The Game being the only relevant artist for some years.

But with the arrival of the 2010s, Kendrick Lamar’s classic album of “Good Kid, MAAD City” and YG’s hit single “My N***a”, eyes were beginning to pay attention to the Los Angeles rap scene as artists who have been grinding for years began to emerge.

Today’s Top L.A. Rap Artists:
