Tampa Bay:
Tampa Rappers & St Pete Rappers

In the shadows of the booming rap markets of Jacksonville, South Florida’s Miami and Broward County, and Orlando is the emerging rap scene within Tampa Bay, a rap scene of Tampa rappers and St Pete rappers.  Nicknamed Trigga City, for the longest Tampa rap music only consisted of Tom G and a few others that were more locally known. But with the growth in popularity of rap and hip-hop music there have been over a dozen Tampa and St Pete rappers that have altogether created a decent rap scene in Central Florida.

From East Tampa to West Tampa, to the small hoods of St Pete, stretching from Childs Park into the South Side, to the small towns of Sarasota and Lakeland, there are enough places in the Tampa Bay metropolitan to produce artists that are able to develop a thriving position among the national rap and hip hop stage.

The number one artist of Tampa Bay hip hop is St. Pete native Rod Wave.  With his melodic sound and music that touches countless of fans by being easily relatable, Rod Wave has become one of the world’s top rap stars. Another one of the leading St Pete rappers is Project Youngin, with his iconic look truly representing the streets through music, while hailing from St. Petersburg’s Jordan Park projects.

With his oldest songs being dated in 2018, T9ine has quickly emerged to the top of hip-hop with popular songs with Polo G, Hotboii, and Lil Durk.  Melodic real life street music, the type of music that rising artist Lil Kee makes, the Florida rapper has accumulated millions of views and streams since debuting.  Two vets in the rap game and two of the top Tampa rappers, Richie Wes and Yung Dred have been able to stay relevant within the Florida rap scene through respect among the streets of Florida and years of a consistent grind.  We can continue, but the point that there is no shortage of talent of Tampa and St Pete rappers.
