List of the Top Polish Rap Artists
In the heart of Central Europe resides a music scene of Polish rappers that have arguably created the regions largest hip hop market. The large list of top and popular Polish rap artists has led Polish hip hop to greatly surpass any neighboring or regional rap scene, leading Poland to be in the same conversation as the U.K., Germany, and France as one of the top markets of hip hop music in Europe.
The historical timeline of Polish hip hop music and culture begins during the early 1990s, making Poland to have one of Central Europe’s oldest rap scenes. As Polish rappers began to develop, there were numerous Polish rap groups and a handful of individual artists as the start of rap and hip-hop music in Poland began to form.
In the 1990s Polish hip hop artists like Liroy, Peja/Slums Attack, Wzgórze Ya-Pa, Tede, Kaliber 44, Warszafski Deszcz/1kHz, DJ 600V, Fokus, and Rahim, founding member of groups like Paktofonika and 3xKlan, helped create a flourishing music scene during the country’s 90s hip hop era.
Entering the 2000s, Polish rap music continued its growth with key artists like OSTR, ZIP Skład, Hemp Gru, Sokół, Molesta, Ten Typ Mes, Onar, Małolat, Chada, Płomień 81, DDK RPK, Fisz, Doniu, Grammatik, and Familia HP, with some beginning in the 1990s but saw the majority of their success during the 2000s.
Many the originals and pioneers are still rapping and are still among Poland’s top rappers, especially artists of the 2000s, all while keeping up with today’s generation. The current lineup of Polish rap artists have transformed this Central European hip hop scene into one of the world’s fastest growing rap markets with top production by producers like Deemz, DJs like DJ. Frodo, and of course the dozens of Polish hip hop artists who have created fanbases and facilitate many hit songs and classic albums.
A roster with Polish rappers like Malik Montana, who is the most distinctive artist on the list with the largest selection of platinum and gold selling hits. Mata, a newcomer to the rap scene but since his debut in 2019 his stock has been on a non-stop rise. Quebonafide, the most accomplished of all Polish hip hop artists whose level of talent is almost unmatchable. Kizo, Poland’s turn up king with swagger that is through the roof. While there are legends of the 90s and 2000s, Bedeos has placed himself as one of the most dominant forces in Polish hip hop of the 2010s.
