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.

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

Best dissemination song and really showed no matter if he's caring don't mess with pac - chocodilesforlife

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.

As raw as it gets

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

So gangsta, so Eazy e

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

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 is the best.Tupac was one of the best.But biggie was the best and always will be...

5Shook Ones Pt. II - Mobb Deep

The beat gives me straight chills...

Others are minors, this is Major

The lyrics are so impactful in this song. There was so much effort that went into this song. Who ever said the originals are better then the sequels you are wrong.

6My Mind Playing Tricks On Me - Geto Boys

I grew up listening to all of this music. This song is still the best.

7Ambitionz Az a Ridah - 2pac

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.

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!

This is the the best rap of all time

9Mind Playing Tricks On Me - Geto Boys

Man this is in the top ten twice

Its Just that good it HAD to be on here twice

10Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang - Dr. Dre

Dre is a true fraud, Eazy has already proved that Dre should be banned from the rap game for a long time. None of his songs should be on the list. Sorry if I offended you Dre or should I say Dr. Fraud.

12Forgot 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.

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 rappers

13Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It - Ice Cube

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?!

14Boyz-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!

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 should be top 5 dude because eazy our godfather of gangsta rap and this song here rlly made it
