Top 10 Gangster Rap SongsThis Is The True Gangster List Cause Fort Minor And Young Gezzy Isnt Even On The Same Page As Gangster.
The Top TenXW
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.
Best diss song of all time tupac was born to be a rapper nothing would be the same without him thank god he was born All Hail The God OF Rap
2pac was the rap god of all no one will be better than himV58 Comments
HOW THE HELL IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10!? WITH OUT THIS THERE WOULD BE NO EAZY-E
This represents gangsta rap, south central la is where it started anyway.
I like 2pac but this is the real deal right here.

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!

2pac is cool, but he brought so much negativity into the rap world while Biggie was always positive (by positive I mean he would never diss any other rapper PERSONALLY)
Greatest rapper of all time. Period.
Tuwack isn't even in the discussion
Biggie was the best he will always beV2 Comments
Not for posers. this is real gangsta rap
I grew up listening to all of this music. This song is still the best.
Incredibly introspective lyrics against a spine-tingling backdrop just blew my mind! The song that inspired countless others to describe hood life in a more critical manner.
I live in India, so far away from Houston and yet I'm a fan of this group. Geto Boys for life.
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'
The title of the song is more gangster than most songs here, not to mention the lyrics and how it presents the life in the streets, ice cube's part is one of the best parts in the history of rap
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 is the the best rap of all timeV10 Comments
What a great song. It's Tupac shakur back in the game ready to make "Changes, or ready to Hit em up". This is arguably the greatest Tupac shakur song ever.V2 Comments
Stop acting like the only reason the song is so good is the beat, the first verse excluding the beat is amazing, I mean flow, rhymes while the lyrics are so meaningful and well worded
Remember kids, there ain't no such thing as halfway crooks. - SwagFlicks
Song doesn't have to have swearing every two seconds to give you chills.
The beat gives me straight chills...V7 Comments
This is the greatest rap song of all time.
Good song, but one line actually slipped. - SwagFlicks
Should be number 1. Made gangsta rap popular. didn't invent it though because that would be nwa
Best song everV7 Comments
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.
In my opinion, this is the greatest album ever produced in the world of Hip-Hop. Not just the song, but the ENTIRE album. I could listen to the whole thing, no problem. There has not been any other artist to achieve that for me. I usually listen to the whole album once, and that's when they come out. After that, I'll have a few that I like off them.
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 rappersV8 Comments
Its Just that good it HAD to be on here twiceV1 Comment
This should be at least in the top three, its one of the best gangsta rap songs.
Ice Cube is one of the best gangsta rappers. I can't see him in the top 5?!
This should be top 3! Where's it was a good day?!V7 Comments
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"
Probably the second best rap song after regulate by warren g and Nate doggV2 Comments
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!
This song truthfully defines the meaning of gangster rap. Probably one of the most iconic songs in gangster rap history of not the most iconic. Eazy and Ice-Cube did a fantastic job on creating this song. because the Boyz n The Hood are always hard.
"this describes life in the hood"
How is Boyz N The Hood not number 1? It is the benchmark, all other tracks are measured by.V5 Comments
Why is this not #1? Everyone should know that Mobb Deep are REAL gangsta rappers. They may not be the best rappers, but this song is too sick to be here. Just look at the lyrics!
If this songs not top 10 I quit life, the first time I heard this song it changed my life forever
The harshest mean brutal lyrics of mobb deep are sick
This song is WAY underrated on this list. Top 3 at least.V3 Comments
That is sick..50 is the second best gangsta rappersV3 Comments
