Top 10 Gangster Rap Songs

This Is The True Gangster List Cause Fort Minor And Young Gezzy Isnt Even On The Same Page As Gangster.

The Top TenXW

1Hit 'Em Up - 2Pac

2pac is the rapper ever! Nobody will be like him. He will be in our hearts forever. He died stupidly. He is a god of rap!

Pac was an expert in organizing words to make a breathtaking impact... almost like being in a lyrical war zone. "Hit 'Em Up" proves this.

It a good song

Pac was doing more than just rapping ;he was making miracles his flow and powerful lyrics

2Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.


This represents gangsta rap, south central la is where it started anyway.

I like 2pac but this is the real deal right here.

What is wrong with people NWA is the god of gangsta rap

3Real Muthaf****** G's - Eazy-E

This song is TRULY the pinnacle of gangster rap. EAZY personifies G rap, that's what makes him the godfather of gangster rap. His lyrics and flow is untouchable in this song, even tupac and biggie rarely peak at this level of flow, lyrics and rhyme.

Don't know why this song isn't here, it is equal to if not greater than hit em up in terms of gangsta rap!

Real recognize real. Westcoast

Forever remember the Pioneer of gangsta rap

4Ready to Die - The Notorious B.I.G.

Greatest rapper of all time. Period.

Tuwack isn't even in the discussion

5Shook Ones Pt. II - Mobb Deep

I love it I'll say you're the best

You ugly as heck

6My Mind Playing Tricks On Me - Geto Boys

Not for posers. this is real gangsta rap

7Mind Playing Tricks On Me - Geto Boys

Man this is in the top ten twice

8F*** tha Police - N.W.A.

If we are talking straight up gangsta rap, then this definitely takes the cake. Hit em up was another number one contestant, but NWA captured the street life in this song, rather than just a diss track. And this one is more raw than 'Straight outta Compton'

A true anthem in the gangsta rap world. I believe that this song helped to change the rap world for the better, and it's more raw than "Straight Outta Compton".

This song changed gangsta rap forever!

Feels like a real gangsta rapping

The Contenders

11Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre & Eminem

I think that this song is the best because it is really good and it is not bad. It is so awesome that it is good. It is so good that it is awesome. Nothing else can be said, and that's pretty much it. Anyone who doesn't this song is fat and not skinny.

Its a nice song, nice beat, and also features Eminem (My Idol).

The great rap song by 2 greatest rappers of all time. Eminem's rap was awesome, the video was great too

Sorry bro Dr Dre is FAR FROM one of the greatest "rappers" of all time

A message from Dre saying he is still badass like he was during his early times, along with the help of one of the greatest rappers

12Boyz-N-The-Hood (Remix) - Eazy-E

This is best beat Dre ever produced... I Love the scratches in between verses, the guitar riffs, the drums... It's just perfection. The lyrics are great, too!

13C.R.E.A.M - Wu Tang Clan

Wu Tang Clan is a legendary rap group.C.R.E.A. M (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) Is not just a great rap but is also a great title

"Neglected for now but yo the mic is hectic"

14Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It - Ice Cube

Dude this should be top 5!

This should be at least in the top three, its one of the best gangsta rap songs.

17Ambitionz Az a Ridah - 2pac
18Ole School S*** - Eazy-E

Greatest rapper that ever lived! Period! He was a fantastic rapper and came up with the sickest songs ever!

Pioneer of gangstar rap will always in no matter what. Eazy-E did make all those famous rappers we have today like Ice cube, pac, Dre, snoop dogg, above the law, bone thugs, etc

One of the only rappers that has meanings in his songs and a gangsta

Eazy is the best rapper. Legend.
