Best Native American Rappers

Native Rappers make a great deal of social-political commentary on numerous issues from racism, to political corruptions and social injustice.

The Top TenXW


Supa Man is Native Hip Hop! There is no question about his Native Heritage. The lyrics are fresh and rez! No other rapper says I'm from the rez and I still point with my lips. That's keeping it real rez. If you want positivity. He has that as there are not cuss words in his music and he is good family Christian man. Drug and alcohol free. Preaching the word of God. Don't get no better then that! Much Blessings to Supa Man!

No one in the native American hip hop community can surpass Supaman and Red cloud!

He is the best! He is not afraid to share his heritage or his belief in God the Father. Supaman is one of a kind. Our native kids need his type of good energy.. Thanks to his family for allowing him to share with us all..

I love your music so much

2City Natives

City Natives is a canadian aboriginal based group consisting of four members: Beaatz, IllFundz, Gearl & BnE. Originating from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, all four members whom are closely affiliated with one another, decided to form what they consider as an "unstoppable" alliance. Individually, they all possess certain styles and aspects of the hip-hop industry. From underground to mainstream, they have combined their talents together to provide an original and unique style of music that differentiates them from other artists. As solo artists, they've all built a solid resume for themselves over the years as well as gained numerous fans through-out all of Canada. Working together, the group found themselves nominated for Aboriginal Recording Of The Year through the East Coast Music Awards of 2013. Without a debut album, they've certainly done well for themselves and continue to represent their people as well pursue the dreams they've set out to fulfill. With your continuous support and unconditional love for real music and aboriginal talent, it's certain that they will succeed in time!

They are an upcoming success story. Their sound keeps getting better.

These boys are grinding! They all have their own style and lane. They're making the best aboriginal hip hop out!

For a group to be together for less than a YEAR. And do the things they did, they deserve this spot as up and comers.

4Red Cloud

Red Cloud, hands down the illest freestyle rapper ever. Heard his stuff and was hooked. He's doing a lot for himself as well as the rest of lightning cloud. He has my vote.

I've known him since the beginning, the boy cannot be stopped, he takes on all challengers and buries them where they stand.

I've had the chance to meet n speak with Red Cloud & Crystal Lightning while they were out in because last year.

Coped there cd, enjoyed it, heard him kill it in the freestyles, been hooked ever since.

Better than anyone on this list

Awesome lyrics I love your music!

Great vibes that rep the Twin Cities urban Native experience. More than a rapper... Always there supporting issues that affect our community.

Chase has got it down for all the nation's people. "My favorite hater" is unique and good lyrics.

14Wab Kinew

Being a part of "Dead Indians", he was and continues to be one of the most important musicians in Indian country. His extremely conscious and relevant lyrics mixed with an unmatched flow makes him a threat to any wack rapper. This dude is legit and has lived what he reps.

Great voice for native youth

The best role model, positive message

15James Blood

His voice sounds like he is black

The hardest Native in the game!

16Maniac: The Siouxpernatural

One of the only Native MCs to make harder, darker hip-hop, super lyrical

Maniac is dope lyrics n flow on tact always got something new to bring to the table


MidWest Hip Hop Artist. Hails from, Cheyenne River, SD. Night Shield Entertainment.

18Buggin Malone

Buggin Malone's music is great he has a lot of really meaningful things in his lyrics. The messages that he puts into his music is a welcome change from all of the other music out there. He is definitely an amazing artist.

Mid-West reppin! Boo yow! Thanks for the great sounds and inspirational stories.

The BEST EVER no matter what any of you haters say about him. At least he makes a difference for TRUE NATIVES! Who else is? AIM is proud as well as leaders throughout the country.

Hell ya. Rep that

19Tall Paul

The only native rapper to incorporate his indigenous language into a song (prayers in a song)

One of the most influential unheard artists from Minnesota

True Hip Hop, True MC. Not a copy cat poser like majority of people on this list. Doesn't rely on being a "Native Rapper" like most of the people on this. He can hang with anybody on the mic in any circle.

Try listening to a song and not agreeing with what he says.. Challenge.
