3 E-40 E-40 Earl Stevens better known by his stage name E-40, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Vallejo, California.

Honestly, if people bothered to listen to E-40, they would be blown away. Skip all the old school junk, his past 9 albums have been the bomb. Here's the list: My Ghetto Report Card, The Ball Street Journal, Revenue Retrievingay Shift, Revenure Retrieving:Night Shift, Revenue Retrieven: Overtime Shift, Revenue Retrieving: Graveyard Shift, and the Block Brochure (parts 1, 2, and 3). His best songs:Gunz, My S*** Bang, Alcoholism, The Streets don't love nobody, tell me when to go, muscle cars, slow it down, 40 water, I'm on one, slow it down... The list goes on and on. He should be considered as the greatest rapper alive and its a crime that he isn't.

known for his songs tell me when to go - anthonybecerra831

E-40 is the most underrated popular rapper ever - venomouskillingmachine

E40 hottness been banging 40water since in a major way most underrated rapper ever

4 G-Eazy G-Eazy Gerald Earl Gillum, better known by his stage name G-Eazy, is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer from Oakland, California.

He produces probably 90% or more of his own music, which is amazing enough, but also his raps are always so chill. definitely top 10

Probably one of the best rappers in America. Not just the bay

Best new modern rapper, most hype songs as well as most deep

5 Andre Nickatina

Andre's lyrics and flow are second to none. It's close between him and Mac Dre, but Nickatina is cream of the crop.

busting out all he's got for the game - anthonybecerra831


He the man

6 IAmSu

Besides from E-40, he runs the bay right now, him and HBK are why the bay stays hot

Hbk gang is the best richy rich city iamsu in that

Su the most underrated

Sure, even though his verse on Gas Pedal was probably one of his worst, his verses on Up by Loverance, Function by E-40, and a lot of his stuff from his three Kilt mixtapes, plus others like Mobbin and countless other songs are what really put him on this list. Plus, he produces a lot of beats not only for himself but other rappers like Ty Dolla $ign, which is a big bonus. Sure he may never be as great as Mac Dre, but he is a great rapper nonetheless.

7 Too $hort

The greatest rapper bar none, to come out of the bay area. Always real with his raps and never stops rapping from the beginning of his songs to the end. The epitome of a true rap star!

been rapping for over 20 years now - anthonybecerra831

Should be at top of the list

And I thought I had hos!

8 Woodie

Lyricism on a par with Tupac and Eminem, I voted Woodie over Tupac here because he never did get the recognition he deserved. Legend.

A Legend who put Northern California on the map, changed the game rapped about the life of crime, drugs, violence, and all Northern California Including Antioch, His Home. Blew up Norte and told everyone what gang he represents. Re$t iN Peace

A true norte bay area legend
