The Top Ten

Ice Cube
Cube revolutionized rap, particularly gangsta rap. Cube and Eminem are the most controversial rappers of all time. Cube was writing lyrics for dre and the world class wreckin cru, as well as eazy e when he was 16-17 years old. Young talent like that cannot be overlooked. He was the powerhouse in NWA and once he left, he destroyed them with his diss track "No Vaseline". He completely took out a whole group. You cannot deny his skill. Cube is the best in the west
I don't care what pac fans say, pac never made an album better than amerikas most wanted or death certificate. Cube is king of west, being the best lyricist of NWA he practically made gangsta rap.
If you don't think its ice cube you should get your head checked he wrote eazy-e and Dr. Dres lyrics for anyone thinking of voting eazy or dre ahead of him and 2pac can't hang with cube. Pac and T are overrated and dre highers writers so naturally its ice cube the "real" king of west coast gangsta rap.

3Snoop Dogg
Snoop doggy dogg is my favorite rapper. I even like his reggae
LBC cripz knw how 2 do it
Snoops flow is above any other rappers, lyrics are true. Proper OG

4Eazy E
Eazy E, the man that brought Compton on the map. he will allways be my greatest
Number 1; the king of Compton and Godfather of Westcoast rap! Born lived and died in Compton City; Dre day was only Eazy's pay day... If he had lived maybe he would have taken a cut of Eminem too
What is Snoop Lion and The Game doing ahead os Eazy E

5Dr. Dre
Dr dre is one of the best westcoast rappers and deserves the second position, not only his lyrics but his beats are simply the dopest. He is the mentor of eminem... What else can we say.. He is the producer who can rap and control the maestro! DR DRE
Dr dre should be 2
Dre is reponsible 4 lot of rappers and he is one of best rappers ever

Just listen to his verse on 'Check Out Time'

Enough Said

7MC Ren
Come On! MC Ren actually wrote lyrics for Dre and Eazy. How can he be ranked under them? One of the most underrated rapper.
SO underrated. People think eazy e is better than ren. Ha. that's funny. Ren wrote all of his lyrics. Listen to final fronteir


The best of nwa suge wanted him on deathrow

8The D.O.C.

His credits include the classic no one can do it better and ghostwriting the chronic by dr.dre.

9Del tha Funkee Homosapien

10Kendrick Lamar
Currently the new king of the west coast, his got the game in a choke hold. His released Good Kid, M.A.A.D City which is already taken as a classic
Great potential for someone this young has the same type of point of view tupac had.

The Contenders

11Ras Kass


Nope, not just the creator of Pimp My Ride, Xzibit is origionaly a great rapper and claimed by the westcoast. He reaped hard and also made sure that the garage he used in his show was the most westside-relative garage in California, Westcoast Customs.


13Ice T

14Spice 1
Amerikka's Nightmare is one of my favourite albums ever, Spice 1 had such good storytelling and had a wicked flow. So talented but so underrated.
most underated rapper ever and best gangster rapper of all time

15Gift of Gab

16Myka 9

17Lil Eazy E

18MC Eiht

One of the best Gangsters ever. His songs have a lot of meaning. Not like today's rap

Considered a pioneer in westcoast hip-hop.


Westside Connections member WC has shown some of the charactaristics we miss in Biggie Smalls but can put his own origional westcoast spin on the tracks. One of the best westcoast rappers around.


The legend of west coast

26Mac Dre
The realest mc of them all!

27Too Short

28Schoolboy Q

29Lady of Rage
Lil Kim can move aside, the best female of rap is straight out of the westside. She has the baddest flow and can rip shreads of the majority of guys in the rap industry today.



31Nate Dogg
Really underrated he should be in the top ten easily
Obviously underrated.
His voice is damn smooth and cool!


This guy could beat 2pac like eminem beats weezy. WESTSIDE

Tyga is a fresh start for the west again

35Twisted Insane
His speed makes him the fastest westsider and one of the best he should be no.5 or 10
