San Francisco Rappers

Top Rappers from San Francisco

The heart of the West Coast hip hop scene, along with Los Angeles, and in which helped pioneer West Coast rap music since the 1980s is no other than the Bay Area, with San Francisco rappers being right in the mix. 

The Bay Area, broken down into Oakland, San Francisco, Richmond, Vallejo, San Jose and other surrounding cities, traditionally has had its own sound, culture, and movement that has influence communities and entire cities around the country.

In the early days of Bay Area’s hip hop scene rappers from San Francisco were on the very top of the rap game on the West Coast as they created the number one rap scene in the region.  Numerous legends, like San Quinn, JT the Bigga Figga, Cellski, RBL Posse, and Rappin’ 4 Tay, have come out of the few ‘hoods of San Francisco, as areas like Fillmore, Lakeview, or Hunters Point produced some of the best all-time West Coast talent within hip hop.

Until recently, San Francisco has always been the leader of the Bay Area’s rap scene, especially during the days of Andre Nickatina, Messy Marv, Ill Mannered, Ghetto Soldiers, Mr. Sandman, 115, T-Lo, Guce, Mac Minister, and Big Rich were at their peak and in their prime.  Over the years the attention somewhat faded away from Frisco as there were more known artists in places like Oakland and Vallejo.

San Francisco rappers are currently back in the limelight, with 24kGoldn bringing hip-hop into the realm of pop culture. While Berner has attained great success as a mogul and entrepreneur, his music still remains popular among his loyal fanbase, creating a lane of hip-hop that no other rapper can venture in.

Larry June has emerged as a prominent figure in West Coast hip-hop, infusing the genre with mature and laid-back vibes. Additionally, Lil Kayla has established herself as one of the top female hip-hop artists on the West Coast, while Lil Bean, Lil Pete, and Zay Bang are spreading the unique flavor and culture of the Bay Area to all corners of the rap game.
