45 Kool G Rap Kool G Rap Nathaniel Thomas Wilson, better known by his stage name Kool G Rap is an American rapper from the Corona neighborhood of Queens, New York City.

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.

59 C-Murder C-Murder

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
