Best East Coast MCsroblist The greatest rappers and Hip hop artists from the East Coast
The Top Ten
Most rappers are known for not just their skills but also personality, looks etc. Nas is one of those people that has been critically acclaimed and commercially successful without showing a unique personality. He has always showed love to those who influenced him unlike jay z. And although he has never had a top 10 hit most of his albums have went gold or platinum. That does says something.
Nas should be number 1, Biggies a great MC but Nas had the best rap album in the genres history, so in my opinion Nas should be number 1
Illmatic best rap album ever written. Nas lyrics are strictly for real hood residents who know and experience about the lifestyle of the poor and dangerous
one of the best rappers the east coast has ever seen11 Comments
Nas only had 1 album, 1 amazing album, BIG was one of the best with 1 album and was everyone's top 3, 2, or 1 (for me it's 1) after 2 albums Nas has had many more albums and is only on everybody's top 5, 4, 3, or rarely 2 because he couldn't do anynore great songs. Also if we're talking East Coast if there was no BIG there would be no East Coast he was the main rapper for the East Coast and gave hope to the East Coast by himself and onlybhad made 1 album yet, for the West it was fueled by a group (NWA) so basically BIG paved the way for Nas cause I don't know if he would have the balls to fuel the East by himself, but BIG had the balls to do it and did. - chocodilesforlife
Nas abound be right behind biggie smalls. Nas is the best rapper alive but biggie was the best rapper ever! He is better than nas if you ask me. Biggie smalls had only recorded 2 albums but had sold over 30 million to this day. He truly is the greatest east coast rapper ever. The king of New York!
Nothing needs to be said nas is the best rapper alive but if biggie was still here he would top the list. 2 albums totally changed hip hop put the east coat back on the map GOAT say no more.
Best flow, best lyrics, two classic albums, outstanding guest verses, great beats, some of the best songs of all time (Juicy, Brooklyn's Finest, Notorious Thugs, Hypnotize, Who Shot Ya) and to top it off, he almost single-handedly revived East Coast Hip Hop. THE Best rapper of all time and the first King of New York.20 Comments
I'm okay with Nas being higher, but not Biggie.
This dude should definitely be number 1 or at least 2 and he should definitely be higher than biggie smalls - DaWyteNight
The best east coast rapper period
Dopest rapper, Your favourite rapper's rapper1 Comment
Big L should be higher, he had a mastery of the English language with all his metaphors
He's one raw ass mc, Even nas said he was scared to compete with l
Just because he died early in his life, cutting shot his rapping career don't mean he should be up higher. He is also one of NYC's finest. Lyrics mean something and the beast are dope as. Should be higher.
You people are fools Big-L is the real MVP.. Why is he not number one? You obviously don't listen to him.8 Comments
Lyricism that I'd almost say reaches EMINEM's level. Surpasses Nas and Biggie lyrically.
50 Cents over Pun? This list is a joke! Pun is the most underrated Rapper of all times.
Most underrated rapper ever. FACT.
For real number 9? Must be JOKING!1 Comment
Jay Z has undoubtedly one of the best discographies of any hip hop artist to live. Very versatile as well with very good subject matter. Jay Z has remained relevant for many years. And for anyone to think he's not a good lyricist, it's because at first glimpse it is hard to understand where he is coming from due to the complexity of his rhymes. Takeover is a very under looked diss track. Nas did his thing in ether. But takeover was a great diss dissing prodigy and Nas. Jay Flows differently in almost every album and hits different subjects as far when most artist just stick to their own styles. I believe Jay Nas Biggie Jadakiss and Big L should be the top 5 in any particular order.
Jay fell off, his first few albums are dope though. When it comes to lyrical content, and flow, he might be number 8 or 9, in my opinion.
Jay Z the sellout, no way should he be this high, and above greats like Talib, Raekwon, and Black Thought? I don't think so. - DaWyteNight
Jay-Z and Nas should be tied for #1.2 Comments
Ain't Half No Steppin is he's best Hit ever!
Come on number 12, he was the best of the eighties.
This is the most intense violent badass harshest most dangerous rapper he'll kill you with his words he makes ever the hardest rappers look like a 6th grader smoking grass its that dope he will drop any other rapper its that nasty man its crazy and he raps about real not scummy money and hoes he talking bout life he's like me biggest roll model sickest shit he makes a aids infected child molester look like a innocent child its that harsh that hard you know?
Definitely one of the best rappers alive. He deals with real problems not only in America but all over the world. His beats aren't the best but his lyrics are just pure fire. Definite lyrical prodigy and he gives great history references and amazing story teller. He is also one of the realest rappers in the game. One of Harlem's finest.
Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal
Moment of truth, daily operation, hard to earn, no more mr nice guy, step in the arena. He should be top 3. Period
Why is guru not in the top three his lyrics were the best ever and his delivery was effortless.R.I.P
Guru was the nummber one... RIP
HE single handedly changed hiphop for my generation (2000s) since biggie and pac everyone relied on ice cub, nas, dre, jay z, eminem BUT when 50cent came hiphop changed FOREVER if you listen to some of his proper lyrics E.G. they Burn Me, How To Rob etc even eminem couldn't come up with that. For me 50cent has to be at the 3rd spot after nas and biggie if you disagree your absolutely CRAZY and if your still not convinced listen to him when he was underground. If this was an all time list he would be 5th nas4th ice-cube3rd biggie2nd tupac1st
50 Cent is the best rapper. He should be in third place after Biggie and Nas. His beast, music and lyrics are dope as and he has changed rap for ever. When I listen to his songs and lyrics I get a shiver up my spine as I do when I listen to Biggie and Nas. Those three are the best.
He is the best east coast rapper of all time
TOP 3 best rappers of all time period6 Comments
I can't believe that 50 Cent is over Black Thought. - DaWyteNight
For his age, Joey Bada$$ will probably be an icon
Joeys gonna be one of the greats one day
Best at his age. Reminds me of Biggie.
Joey is on his way to being a legend in the game but I'm still surprised logic and A$AP Rocky are still so low3 Comments
He is top 5!
Why is he this low when Rakim is 3?
Even Nas was influenced by his delivery and lyricism
He is decent, but not the best. Doesn't compare to Rakim, Kane, G Rap, KRS or any of those legendary rappers from his time. - DaWyteNight
A true ledgend despite the fall off due to trouble with the law & drugs. Dmx is one of the best towards album sales. With multi albums hitting the #1 on the billboard.
Should be #1. At least top 5.
One of the most underrated rappers of all time
My beautiful dark twisted fantasy is the greatest rap album ever made!
all of his albums are a different style, college dropout was orchestral genius, late registration was orchestral pop that was good, graduation was pop and great, 808s was a futuristic love album, and my beautiful dark twisted fantasy was just a perfect album for all genres
He's not an east coast rapper - DaWyteNight
This guy and Kendrick Lamar are the only mainstream rappers of today who have any talent.
Dude has lyrical talent unlike most of the mainstream rappers now
Him, Kendrick and Kanye are best rappers of the 21st century period.
He is so underrated people haven't heard his songs, this is the true definition of rap not the one you hear now. This man may not be a mainstream rapper but he is good to listen to. His best songs are Black Cowboys & Verses of Doom. Listen to those and make sure you download his discography. He definitely represents The East Coast very good. Much respect
THA MOST UNDERRATED RAPPER OF ALL TIME
THIS IS WHAT RAP IS, OLD SKOOL STYLE
JERU IS A GREAT RAPPER!
HE REPRESENTS NEW YORK WITH STYLE AND PRIDE IN HIS RAPS,
HE TELLS NY THE WAY IT IS
HE MUST GET BACK IN THE GAME BUT
BEEN AWAY FOR A WHILE
BUT I GUESS THATS WHAT AN UNDERGROUND RAPPER DOES REALLY =)
LOVE HIS SONGS
Best flow in the game. Dope voice, too. Should at least be in top 10! Meth king.
I am redisgning the mind of the masses the fear of black man with tattoos and bandanas
Should be 1
He's alright - DaWyteNight
One of today's best in the rap game
His full name is "AK The Savior"
His name is "AK The Savior"
Capital Steez NUMBER 13! Capital Steez is one of the Greatest to stand 10 feet or even father to a mic. He is bettrer than Jay Z Joey. He is top 3. He lyrics are way over peoples heads. That's why some people underate him. But Real Hip Hop Heads know what I'm saying. Never Put Capital Steez all the way down here. He is like Number 3 or even 2. Listen to the Lyricism he puts in his songs. It is up to par with people like Biggie and Nas. He just writes them in a different way. He paints a different kind of picture in Rap. Don't tell me I'm wrong.
He should be in top 10.He's one of the best rappers right now
Best rapper for this generation
Is he even from New York
He's good, that is when he isn't saying lines about farting and how he's the s**t. - DaWyteNight1 Comment
In my opinion this guy is better than method man.
His Supreme Clientele is awesome!
One of the best East Coast producers. Producing skills like Kanye and Kirk Knight - Melvin_BigSmoke_Harris
His name is "Issa Gold"
NUMBER 10 SHOULD'VE BEEN LL COOL J - KrazzyMadd
How the hell is he so low? And 50 Cent, ASAP Rocky, Jay-Z and Biggie are higher? SMH... - DaWyteNight
Not a "MC" at all - DaWyteNight
P diddy is ASS. He always whines in his songs and the only reason he had a career is because Biggie Smalls was alive, but when Biggie died his career was pretty much over.
Please lets just take Diddy off this list all together. He wasn't that much of a good rapper
P Diddy an MC? - DaWyteNight
Who put P diddy on this list? His music sucks.
How was he not right behind AK the Savior
Full name is "Zombie Juice"
