3Too $hort

raised in oakland most of his life

Too short only blew up because of coming out with the ghetto. Prior to that, he was known as a foul mouth, disrespectful to women, with nothing positive to say. He has no lyrical skills. Rumor has it, that while doing community service in emeryville, he ran across a city worker, and was given a tape to a young lyricist. He stoled her lyrics and came out with the ghetto the following year.

The Dangerous Crew didn't get nearly enough representation on this list.

19Boots Riley

Boots Riley and The Coup is some of the funkiest and politically aware hip hop still to this day. Great flow and lyricism.

Tremendous text making sense, goof flow, music style on stage from funk to punk, humor and genrosity. Great artist... Welcome in Europe
