Best Westcoast Rapper

The best from the West. Who's the best rapper from the Westcoast.

The Top TenXW

1Ice Cube

First of all 2pac should not be here because it said from the west and he is from New York but if it said best west coast rapper yes he should be here but it said from the west so no he should not be here. anyway ice cubes first album was great with good storys bout the street and his 2nd album was even better since he got really political and rapped about loads of different problems in america and owned nwa with one of the best diss songs ever. he was part of the most influential rap group and him himself has also made great influence. he is just a great rapper his voice and flow makes him sound so op definitely the best from the west and 2nd best west coast rapper

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.

Ice Cube is the best...

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

Dre made the careers of 50 Cent, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and The Game. He even worked on the career of Nas. He made two of the greatest rap albums ever "The Chronic" and "2001". I could write do much more than this, but people already have written about it

Dre dre is the best definitely better than eazy e

Dr dre should be 2

Just listen to his verse on 'Check Out Time'

Enough Said

7Kendrick Lamar

Great potential for someone this young has the same type of point of view tupac had.

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

Now this list is before TPAB, right? This guy gave west coast actual meaning. It is hard to deny that the west had a raher lyrical drag compared to the east coast, but this guy showed that the west is equally capable or lyrically conscious music, and the only difference is sound. King Kendrick Forever.

PAC is the best selling rapper in the west cost he is just the best even dead he still had great albums because he is the chosen one period

No rapper has represented the west coast as much as 2pac.

Why isn't he at the top, the what?

Why is 2pac not higher on this list

9MC 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 - LegitGames12

This guy is probably the most underrated rapper of all time! He had a huge contribution to N.W.A and his solo career wasn't that bad, despite being ignored a hell of a lot.

10The D.O.C.

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

The Contenders

11Del tha Funkee Homosapien
12Ras 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. - UnEtH

Go listen to whats the difference then you will see why he's underrated

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

16MC Eiht

Considered a pioneer in westcoast hip-hop.

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

This man represented and still represents Compton and west coast rap all his life. He is 47 years old and releasing LP's for goodness sake!

17Myka 9
18Lil Eazy E

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. - UnEtH

The legend of west coast


Can make you cry if he wants to and can make you laugh reminds me of the best rapper ever Eminem
