List of Top Rappers from Oakland
For the longest Oakland rappers have played a major role in not only the Bay Area rap scene, which has been the heart of West Coast hip hop alongside Los Angeles, and but also rappers from Oakland have been pioneering West Coast rap music since the 1980s.
The Bay Area, broken down into Oakland, San Francisco, Richmond, Vallejo, San Jose and surrounding cities, has its own sound, culture and movement that has influence communities and entire cities from around the country, with the Oakland being at the center of all of it, especially the Oakland hip hop culture.
To give credit where credit is due, rappers from Oakland like Too Short, Yukmouth, Keak Da Sneak, Dru Down, MC Hammer, Richie Rich, The Luniz, Lil Rue, Digital Underground, and E-A-Ski are just some of the many Bay Area rap pioneers and hip hop legends, but are the main ones that have represented ‘The Town’, also known as Oakland.
While historically Oakland has always been present in the West Coast rap scene, today’s generation of Oakland rappers have been keeping up the legacy of Oakland hip hop and the Bay Area’s rap scene. As mentioned, continuing the legacy, but on levels that have never been seen before the current roster of rappers from Oakland is beyond worth checking out, it is a must if you have true appreciation for hip hop and the West Coast culture.
