Top Upstate NY Rap

(Top Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, & Buffalo Rappers)

In the shadows of the New York City rap scene is the hip hop scene of Upstate New York, which includes Rochester, Buffalo, Albany and Syracuse rappers.  Along the Interstate 90, a four hour stretch from Buffalo to Albany, resides large urban populations of African Americans and Latinos. 

Within these communities, communities like the East Side of Buffalo, the South Side of Syracuse, the Uptown section of Albany,  or the North Side and West Side of Rochester, consists of hundreds of talented artists.  Within the large batch of talent emerges a handful of Albany, Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo rappers that have created the opportunity for themselves to be seen outside of Upstate New York.

While on the East Coast, Upstate New York’s rap scene has never gotten the attention truly deserved from the rest of the world as the likes of other East Coast cities, Philadelphia and New York City, but if anyone enjoys listening to New York City’s hip hop scene then a Rochester NY rapper or an artist out of Albany should be worth checking out, especially as Buffalo rappers of Griselda Records have almost completely taken over the music industry.
