The Top Ten


Punchlines, humor, consciousness... this Houston MC has a little bit of everything with exceptional delivery. His diversity makes him top in Syrup City.



The socialness and pain of Tupac. This talented MC brings heat to the game in the form of rapid delivery or harmony.


3Big Love

The true grit of the city. This reality MC is an underground legend in the city, but one listen and you're feeling his flow of constant rhyming words and heartfelt offerings.



Once the best lyricist in the city can be credited for grooming his predecessors, who all took game from the OG. One of hip hop's premeir story-tellers.


5Lil Keke

The Don of Houston is capable of creating popular music and creating trends. He is somewhat the defintion of a Houston MC.



From political awareness to simply spitting the real, there should be no top ten list representing Houston without his entry.


7Magno a*k*a Magnificent

New York has Fabulous and Houston is blessed with the metaphors of Magno, Ya Heard!


8Slim Thug

This giant of an MC may be slept on by mainstream hip hop, but Slim has proved his worth as an MC from vicious battles in the past to major label debuts.


9KB da Kidnappa

Street Military OG has rapid fire delivery and always has substance.


10Fat Pat

Truly one of the best game-spittaz from the H. If he hadn't been taking so soon from us he could have without a doubt been the King Of The City.
