List of the Top Rappers from Toronto
The hip-hop market of Canada, particularly Toronto, is often overlooked by individuals who may not consider Canadian or Toronto rappers to be legitimate. However, it is worth mentioning that the rap scene in Toronto surpasses that of many American cities. Also, it is not just Drake and Tory Lanez who are leading the way.
During the early days of hip hop in Toronto, some of the most prominent Toronto rappers included Michie Mee, Maestro, Devon, Moka Only, Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, Classified, Rascalz, IRS, Ghetto Concept, Jelleestone, and several others who dominated the local hip hop scene from the mid-1980s to the start of the 2000s. Although most of the current Canadian rap artists are from Toronto, there were brief periods in the history of Canadian rap when Vancouver and even the province of Nova Scotia contributed artists to the Canadian hip-hop market.
Toronto neighborhoods such as Jane and Finch, Regents Park, and Rexdale have served as the foundation for many rappers from Toronto, accounting for approximately a quarter of the Canadian hip hop scene. Despite Canada’s flourishing success in music, and its continuous growth, there have been several fallen artists. Similar to Chicago, where multiple rappers have died prematurely, Toronto has also witnessed the deaths of over a dozen top artists or popular up-and-coming rappers.
