Best Gangsta Rappersxdogg
The Top Ten
Tupac is the G.O.A.T. even though he is not the best lyrically he's up there. He died at age 25 and made an incredible impact on African Americans in general. Not to mention he sold so many albums after his death and he is the definition of Rap music. R.I. P PAC
Tupac is the best gangster rapper, he was a real gangster, he is the worlds greatest gangster rapper and he will live on. If he was still alive Lil Wayne would be sweeping up the toilets in burger king. Tupac was shot dead in September the 13th 1996 at the age of 25. Tupac shakur lived by the gun and died by the gun. R.I. P = Rap Is Pac! R.I. P 2pac!
He was really good and will most definitely be missed but he was not a real gangster and if you don't agree tell me what gang he was in
Tupac is a real gangster rapper. What is Lil Wayne doing here in the Top Tens? Wayne's songs are whiney and tiresome. Tupac's CDs kept coming after death and his songs are still admired today.
He's a legend the fact that His songs still lives on is amazingV 143 Comments
The Realest In The History Of Rap
The realest and you can ask many people... COMPTON 4LIFE
Since he is the only one on this list who may have been a gangster, he must be the greatest gangster rapper. Looking at some of the people in this list, they are confused between rapper and gangster rapper. Tell me one gangster song by Eminem, Gucci Mane or Kanye West.
When we talk about Gangsta Rap - We talk about Eazy-E.
No wonder people call him "The Father of Gangsta Rap".

Biggie Smalls and Tupac should be on the top of this list brooklyn to the fullest. Notorious B. I. G had a real rap sheet not like these industry made rap sheets like Lil Wayne and T. I
They don't call him the Notorious B.I. G for nothing. The most gangster rapper in the world. No doubt!
Why is eminem in the list he's one of the best rappers ever but he's not a gangster biggie is a gangster and should be number 1 no doubt then number 2 should be snoop then PAC, tupac wasn't the best rapper as everyone keeps saying he is he's the realist with his lyrics but his flow is nothing compared to biggie snoop and even big L
I won't say Tupac wasn't strong, but he grew up poor, not a gangster, unlike this guy who was an actual OGV 40 Comments
What the f is this.. Everyone knows who owns gangster rap! Its not even a discussion... West coast king cube!
This dude is above easy e, HE WROTE EAZY E'S DAMN LYRICS! In terms of gangsta rapper I think he is above Tupac, just the greatest gangsta rapper ever. Listen to death certificate and amerikas most wanted! You will understand. Shout out to scarface, he should be third. Then comes Tupac and the rest of NWA.
No one got better gangster rap songs than ice cube!
Even though he isn't the best rapper he is by far the best gangsta rapper
Ice Cube is a great Gangsta rapper although he was said to be not much of gansta growing up. Well he fooled me lol. - ParasN2000V 64 Comments
Eminem is no gangster never claimed to be a gangster never lived a life of a gangster ans never even lived on the streets to be a gangster. Suburbans don't know what a gangster is so they think Eminem is. Eminem might try to act like he was a gangster but he's not. He doesn't even deserve to be on this list or any other list but best white rapper. Whites need to stop trying to pick the white rapper for every list especially one he doesn't belong on. HE IS NOT A GANGSTER. Never even experienced it.
Eminem got bullied so hard that he had to be put in a 1 week coma when he was 9 years old
Eminem also got shot. And Eminem lived in the worst part of Detroit - venomouskillingmachine
Everything he says turns into a beast song... Every song he features in he surpasses the artist.. He came from a tough life... And he's songs are real and come from the heart especially when tragic events happen in his life he will use it to his advantage... Plus he can change styles easily he freestyles good but his 2010 stuff sucked but now that he's back with some of d12 his old self is coming out
Man, to all the angry black people on this thread, how would you feel if you heard a white person saying things like "those blacks need to stop (blah blah blah)", or "blacks don't know about Classical music! Always listing Coltrane and Cole like they even held a candle to the old masters.. Ignorant s."? White people, for the most part, try very hard to be considerate, and I think it's getting to the point that, as a society, we're all just feeling like if you're not going to try to hold up to the same, we're just going to say "they don't want to get along" and I think deep down, off twitter, most every black person knows that that would not end well for them. I mean, your average IQ is 80, competing in a world populated entirely by others who average 100, and in a no holds barred match of overall competence, I think all you have to do is think back to school to remember how that feels. But, right now, you've got an entire nation ready to not only accept ...more
Eminem was more of a Gangsta than Cube but Cube was more of a Gangsta Rapper. - ParasN2000V 93 Comments
Probably the most influential rap song writer and producer ever. The style created by the doctor was the touchstone of gangsta rap, setting the tone for generations to come. RESPECT TO DRE!
Dr. Dre is the best rap and hip hop producer ever!
Dre was making the good rap when rap was good, and he's still making good music. Plus, his beats are featured on raps by most the rappers above.
He never did a crime in his life
Yet every time he raps he raps about the guns and knives - miguelmam
how do you get more gangster than 50 cent? he came from nothing to a near billionaire because his tough ass never gives up and does what needs to be done. he grew up with no mom or dad. his intelligence gave him the ability to run the crack business in the streets. he was hired by drug lords and pimps for protection because he "wasnt afraid to pull a pistol" he was shot 9 times and has been stabbed twice. he has been jumped countless times since his childhood. he came into the rap game challenging and speaking his mind about any rapper. and every rapper who has challenged him back has had their career ended. this man has been thru so much and still walks around with a smile on his face making hit records. he's a gangster
He is one of the top five gangster artists, Here's the real list for all you people who danoe : Tupac, Biggie, 50 Cent, The Game, Eminem - Top Five artists no real order but they are the five dons. Anyone else chatting about other gangster rap is chatting out they asscrack.
Real gangsta voice, gangsta tunes, gangsta lyrics... Total thug... Total gangsta... Fitty's the best gangstas out there.
So much more depth to his music than the rappers bellowV 45 Comments
Snoop Dogg is probably the most acclaimed rapper of today, he bases all of his songs on Gangster.
His entire style is based on Gangster. Thats just Snoop Dogg's style of rapping. and you gotta give it to him. He has really made a name for himself too. - roblist
SNOOP DOGG FOR LIFE HE ROCK I LOVE HIM. He is a slow rapper but his rhymes are 1000 percent free style not written freestyle all his songs. He should be number 3.
Snoops smoothness, funk and lyrics sum up to something better than the rest. "I promise I smoke chronic til the day that I die. " Doggystyle is hard to beat for a single CD.
Smoke weed everydayV 20 Comments
No one is better than NAS! No other rapper has a flow of his quality with any beat in any song he has! His lyrics are the best no doubt and if you have got doubt then you anit listening to his song! Nas is the sickest stillmatic Illmatic two of the best rap albums of all time!
He is lyrically talented he is the king of new york with out him the rap game. Wouldve not Been as good as it is today
One of the greatest rappers alive, let along gangsta rap. He definitely should be number one on the list.
Get eminem off and put him onV 16 Comments
One of the Best lyrical rappers of all time.R.I.P. big L
Such a good voice, such good flow, and such good lyrics. His instrumentals are good and his lyrics are dope and smart. Notthin much can match the graveyard by Big L for me
Had the best punchlines ever and still rapped about the hood. Best ever. Period.
Best gangsta rapper and lyricist of all time. Plus you can't kill him he was born dead.!V 7 Comments
He's the best hardcore rapper of all time and he's definitely in the top 5 best gangsta rappers. He should also be in the top 10 best rappers of all tim
Dmx is the most hardcore rapper the world will ever see dah mun shell down many men already men even Eminem
For some that's been addicted to crack from his teens, I must admit his something special to keep his physical and mental appearance throughout the years although you can see the drugs evil doing on him now in 2014 as recent as July. Imagine how great he would of been if he wernt on class A drugs... People judge and quick to knock him and a lot of that has to do with the newer generations seeing him the way he is now and not back before in his prime. Easily without any doubt he could have been one of the most powerful/significant figures in hip hop and along with Tupac.
This guy was like the hardest rapper ever though. Like I was straight up terrified of this guy when I was young because he was so loud and bombastic - hiphopgodV 24 Comments
This website doesn't know rap, Scarface should be on the top 3, instead you have Eminem on there, granted he is lyrical but he's not gangsta, he doesn't know anything about selling, the only thing close is that guy was a fiend because he was a pill popper, this website needs to learn what a gangsta rapper really is and not just put stuff up to gain traffic.
Great Gangsta Storyteller Great Lyrics Great Flow and Delivery - hiphop10
This man is should be in the top 3 at the very least. Who in the hell put Eminem up there? Lil Wayne? That cat is far from a gangsta. Snoop? A gimmick! Tupac? the biggest fraud since pet rocks. - TRUTH4daMASSES
Face paints a very vivid picture and is one the best story tellers ever. A for thoes who ran the streets in real hoods and truly in the streets all his raps add up not mention the attitude he brings pretty much spot to most street cats I know.V 2 Comments
Bone thugs at number 32? Is everyone idiots? Listen to the first to bone albums and tell me they ain't gangster as hell. I'm disappointed in everyone here. 5 words, CREEPIN ON AH COME UP
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has made multiple tracks that are inspirational and just good to listen too.
Very original for their time lyrical geniuses!
The best gangster barbershop quintet EVER.V 4 Comments
He should be in the top 5 because he never got the attention like the rest in N.W. A excluding yella people don't appreciate his music.
MC Ren is one of the greatest. He is still spitting gangsta rap to this day! Not like the other fakes on this list that found god and don't do that anymore. MC Ren is true to himself and the fans!
MC Ren should at least be top 5. Him and Ice Cube wrote all the NWA lyrics and when Cube left he was the only true rapper left in the group.
MC Ren never got as much attention as the rest of the NWA (except DJ Yella) even though he was just as good if not better at rapping than the rest of them.V 9 Comments
Ice T is the greatest gangsta rapper ever. People need to go back and listen to his old albums. He made at least five classic gangsta rap albums, with about 15 to 20 tracks on each album, with lyrics that expressed intelligent street knowledge as well as raw street gangster tales. AT LEAST FIVE CLASSIC ALBUMS, maybe more. Ice T is to the gangster rap genre what Clint Eastwood is to the western movie.
The only gangster rappers who even start to compare to Ice T are Ice Cube (who was more political/militant than gangster at his peak) and possibly Scarface.
Ice T is the original gangsta. He started it in the early 80's I think that puts him in the top 3. His lyrics are pure gangsta
This man started it all back in the dayz... Anf also very important: you can actually hear what he is saying!
6 in the morning had been redone by so many rappers since, it is the classic gangsta tale. The true godfather of rap as him and schooly D were spitting gangsta ish around the same timeV 5 Comments
Best dam rapper by for, then Nas don't get me wrong, Love some PAC and biggie. Jay z is the best rapper in the world. I got Love for cube but them other cats you can put there brains in a bird and the bird will fly backwards
He's a lyrical genius
He ain't no gangsraV 2 Comments
Spice-1 is the giggity giggity gangsta. He's been putting down since 91 reps gangsta rap to the fullest and in my opinion at least top five for sure he got more gangsta in his pinky than 90% of these other dudes. His lyrical flow is way out the box and in 91 he was so ahead of his time that he'd clown any current rapper nowadays
Spice 1 needs to be up more on this list definitely
When I heard "Born to Die" on tales from the hood I was blown away, and immediately learned how gangsta Spice 1 was.
The best by far, hands downV 7 Comments
Yes not the best but I still love some of his songs
Man he the realest
Method man is underground and theey said no underground rapper wa sin a gang.
This is a real gV 2 Comments
Vinnie Paz is your favorite gangster rapper's favorite gangster rapper!
Vinnie Pas is REAL.. One of the best ever! Him immortal technique are lyrically Untouchable... GANGSTA Rap? NWA OR BIGGIE!
Boxcutter Pazzie! Jedi Mind, Army of the Pharoahs... This guy epitomizes hardcore rap...
Needs to be way higher than 15
Paz-man is the embodiment of gansta rap. Respect!V 1 Comment
Realist rapper out there today I don't understand how 90% of the people above him are above him he kills every verse he has and doesn't mess around whether he's rapping about the streets, his life, or getting messed up. TECHNICIAN FOR LIFE!
All songs feel genuine, different and fresh. that b cool if this Artist started doing trap and bass, 4 something even fresher, or better yet, new world sounds.
Tech is the best rapper you can actually think of really
Yeh just gave him a listen, dope!V 2 Comments
This dude is one of the best he's a true definition of a gangster in hip hop so yeah to me he should be on top 5 with ludacris...
He is my friend from high school we are in the gang
Kevin gates raps about life not garbage he raps because it's a lifestyle not because he wants the fame
He is the the truth
I'm from br and he is a good rapper

Just as gangster as Eazy-E
One of the best

All you guys must be high! You put Mc Eiht below Kanye, Game, Eminem, jay-z, nas, dr dre?! Yo, we are talking about gangsta rappers (rappers who are gangsters), and MC Eiht is one of the realest MC's ever, not the best Mc ever... But he spits pure gangster though. Eazy-E, Ice Cube and Pac (and Jay-Z-although he is a white man style of gangster) are the only ones who have legitimacy to be above Eiht... Dre is no gangsta, everybody knows that.
? Kanye admitted he wasn"t a real gangsta og belong at the top not below these punk idiots who think there gods really there's not enough Room for that many gods get outta here menace two society belongs somewhere at the top why do you think they put him in the movie cause he belonged in it the only real gangsta rappers today are old and tired or young and really dumb
Really? Kayne West in front of Eiht? Damm, if you believe that MC Eiht is less gangsta than Kayne West, then listen to Comptons Most Wanted's songs.

He sounds good, and he is cute!
This guy spits the realist ever. If you haven't heard him listen to him now. Most of his music is about the government
With the top lyricists, keeps it real
Should be in the top 10 because Ja is always keeping it real and he never changed over the years and most of his raps are about real life and street life, and he just doesn't spit random words like most modern day rappers, and his songs have meaning behind them, and he has his own label now even after the Inc. Broke up
He is nowhere near a gangster. And his music sucks.
Yo ja shouted out to your family
Yea og loc lolV 3 Comments
Danny is the greatest rapper ever known to man. He's underground though you wouldn't know unless you gave him a try. Unlike ASAP and Lil Wayne or any of them fake rappers that rave about mashed potatoes and Versace pillow cases. Danny knows what the streets are like he used to sell Crack. This guy deserves some street creds cause his name rings bells in ery hood you go! You should listen to his song torture or Wonderbread anything on his album old is either about selling rocks or life on the street and the second half is about him drowning himself in pills and booze. He Is a true artist
He is a living day busta
He is a living day pharoh
How he wasnt even on the list till now is a mystery great lyricist magic always happened when he be on the mic
Of course, young money is gangsta, especially drake... Sarcasm level: it's over 9000!
Weezy is such a good rapper! His songs are great and he has a lot of power. He's a gangster rapper.
Wether this heavyweight rapper deny but Weezy We is the new Tupac

Rolled with gangsters is a gangster why he not woth ice cube what?
GZA, RZA, METH, CHEF, ODB, etc The wutang styles r at the top of the food chain
Raekwon has got the sickest flow and lyrics and should be higher up on this list, just listen to his debut album only built 4 Cuban linx like the song ''incarcerated scarfaces'' or ''guilotine swords'' him and ghostface had the dopest rhymes
Inventor of rap slang words. Bay area legend. He is still hungry and humble
I think e-40 should be the first I grew up on him and he can rap all of them out buildingV 1 Comment
Why is he so low down!? I'll admit he is not as well rounded as biggie, lyrical as big l or as thought provoking as the don Tupac, but his flow is amazing and can make almost any two words rhyme! Should definitely be top ten, possibly top five.

That fake blood Lil Wayne is about as gangsta as my 91 year old grandmother. Kool G Rap is the founder of gangster rap before the west coast did it. Kool G Rap should be 1 for that and he is better than anyone on this list as far as I can tell.
It know a little about Rap then you would know that this dude is the truth when it comes to gangsta Hip Hop...
Four words... "Live and Let Die". That whole album was a crime film put to wax.
He shouldn’t be this low... - Jon8201

Idk how lil wayne got there or eminem... Trae songs go harder than any of anyones songs up there... Look him up, look up REAL TALK by trae
Nipsey needs to be in top 20 at least we str8 crippin
C murder should be in the top 5. People that don't like his music can't relate to what he's says all these new raps care more about the money not the street. Most of these new rappers came from the streets as they say in their songs but you see them in hollywood eating on fine china. I hate these new rappers all they wanna rap about is how much money they got and what they drive they talk in their rap about they will shoot a person and rob and steal but you don't hear about there doing it the real gangster rappers are either dead or locked up or in jail for rapping about shooting somebody and did it and now serving life. In other words be about it don't rap about it and don't do it or rap about something you ain't done. But I'm a ride or die kind of person
He's been in and out of prison and the streets he knows the meaning of being a Gangsta, he lived the life of one growing up from a B.G. to an O.G... Mad respect to Cory Miller...
C-Murder is great! Miss his music! TRU for life!
Human trash, a waste to society and a worthless pig
Jeezy is copied by all of these rappers from 2006-present day
