Best Gangsta Songs Ever

The Top TenXW

1Hit 'Em Up - Tupac

This is the greatest song there is it brought a lot of controversy with the notorious big!

the whole East v. West conflict started here. Bad Boys and Death-Row, Pac took it out on Biggie and Diddy. 3 years later both rappers are killed, rap hasn't been the same since. - anthonybecerra831

No one can beat him, believe me, Tupac is the god of rap, the best rapper ever, and still I never found the same rapper like him

That's right Tupac. Hit up biggie

2Remember the Name - Fort Minor

best there ever was, best there ever will be


Good song but it's not a gangsta song, it's a pump up song.

I think that fort miner has great songs but remember the name is the best

3Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio

Coolio is awful singer and actor but at least he made this song-masterpiece. Definitely the best Gangsta song ever in history - Magnolia


A lot of people dislike the fact of rap effecting white suburbia but in my opinion this song is perfect, it tells you that other then the song itself, there is nothing in thar lifestyle for anyone, raw song.. Sends a message across.
Great lyrics, the song is an eye opener, raw heavy rap.. Its good.

Best Gangsta song while maybe except the croosroads

Coolio is the best singer ( should agree ) if not you suck and you have bad hearing

4Cop Killer - Ice T

Pretty punky to be honest, but good beat and talks about the crooked cops, and how they should, get shot in the face

Ice-T plays a cop on T.V. , that's pretty lamo, but good song, it has good beats and Ice make cops look like a pimp

You are so cool

5Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A

Tells an epic story of southern cali. One of the best ever. Too bad the group didn't last longer

DAYUM, dis tune wrecks any tunee. so str8 gangsta
this song MADE gangsta rap

There once was a time where things were peaceful. People would wake up in the morning to the sound of birds chirping and make there way through their boring, but happy, life. BUT SCREW THAT NOISE! This song represents all that is free and awesome. No more is there time of peace and boringness, only excitement and chaos! - Lasvegasxavier

This song revolutionized gangsta rap and showed everybody what it was like in Compton, the most gangsta city there is.

8Who Shot Ya? - Notorious B.I.G

this song shows why you don't mess with papi

I still think this song expresses the struggle between the two, (BIG and Pac), and I like this song better than Pac's, it's more original.

This song
