The Top Ten

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..
[Newest]By far the best native rapper

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!

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.
