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!

24 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.

Yo gay

27 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

28 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

29 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop "artist" and is often referred to as one of the worst "rappers" of all time. 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 talking 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.

Lil' Wayne is the best rapper alive! 2Pac is garbage and 2Pac sucks. Lil' Wayne is the best. 2Pac is just for 5 year old kids that they think they "Gangsta". Lil' Wayne, The Best Rapper Alive! WEEZY BABY FOREVER LIL TUNECHI FOREVER LIL WAYNE FOREVER! - CoolMods

30 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

31 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

36 Mack 10

Seriously? ? One of the best Gangsta rappers out there! MACK has always kept it real no bull

Rolled with gangsters is a gangster why he not woth ice cube what?

37 Raekwon Raekwon Corey Quontrell Woods, better known by the stage name Raekwon, is an American rapper and a member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

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

38 Big Pun Big Pun Christopher Lee Rios, better known by his stage name Big Pun, was an American rapper. Emerging from the underground hip hop scene in The Bronx borough of New York City, in the early 1990s, he was the first Latino rapper to have an album certified platinum as a solo act. more.

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.

Watch dre day music video there is a sex scene and it is gay.

Big fat ass

Top 5 this list is bs n overpopulated by black people that have no sense of what real gs are yall go off what you see on T.V.
