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

One of the best & one of the best record label everybody signed to Strange Music is hard as hell he should b way up there

22 Game

He is my friend from high school we are in the gang

23 MC Ren MC Ren Lorenzo Jerald Patterson, better known by his stage name MC Ren, is an American rapper from Compton, California. He is the founder and owner of the record label Villain Entertainment. His moniker is derived from the middle letters in his first name.

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.

Yea put him 5 instead of that cracker eminem

25 MC Eiht

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.

27 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., also known professionally as Lil Wayne, is an American rapper. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age . He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career . He's often criticized for constantly talking about money, girls, and more.

Overrated and he is no where near a gangsta. He acts like a pretty boy now when he know he the ugliest rapper alive

I must say he does have a talent. But being one of the realest gangster rappers he will never be. Truly a bad role model for the youth and going to jail doesn't mean your gangsta. He never lived a real street life as of the people from his city. Money, tattoos and gold teeth means nothing when it comes to being gangsta. But everyone like who they like but being Real is something allot of people isn't.

He rocks he is also a very nice person. He helped eminem get more famous when he was failing then he helped nicki and drake drake was not the famous but now he is ALL BECAUSE OF WAYNE he helped eminem nicki and drake get 50 percent more famous and richer and gave all the credit to them and 1 percent to himself.

29 Immortal Technique Immortal Technique Felipe Andres Coronel, better known by the stage name Immortal Technique, is an American rapper and urban activist from Lima, Peru.

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

30 Ja Rule

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

Ja rule is greatest

31 Danny Brown

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

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

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 building
