Best Gangsta Songs Ever

The Top Ten

1 Hit 'Em Up - 2Pac Hit 'Em Up - 2Pac Cover Art

This is the greatest song there is it brought a lot of controversy with the notorious big!

This song is the best song ever! 2puc, who is the man... His every songs have meanings and I love the way he sing... Just love it! He is the king of rap with his deep voice...

Man I like biggie but tupac destroyed him in this. This has to be one of the greatest diss song ever. Tupac was a gangster.

the whole East v. West conflict started here. Bad Boys and Death-Row, Pac took it out on Biggie and Diddy. 3 years later both rappers are killed, rap hasn't been the same since.

2 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A. Cover Art

There once was a time where things were peaceful. People would wake up in the morning to the sound of birds chirping and make there way through their boring, but happy, life. BUT SCREW THAT NOISE! This song represents all that is free and awesome. No more is there time of peace and boringness, only excitement and chaos!

How can The Anthem Of Gangsta Rap Not Be On The List, And yeah by the way As Much As I Love The Song Cop Killer, yeah I got my name from it, it's no Gangsta Rap, People Who Vote For It Never Heard, It's A Rock Song.

This song revolutionized gangsta rap and showed everybody what it was like in Compton, the most gangsta city there is.

Tells an epic story of southern cali. One of the best ever. Too bad the group didn't last longer

3 Nuthin' but a G thang - Dr. Dre Nuthin' but a G thang - Dr. Dre Cover Art
4 Shook Ones, Pt. II - Mobb Deep Shook Ones, Pt. II - Mobb Deep Cover Art

It simply defines east coast rap and life in the hood in general. Over a dark piano-infused beat Prodigy delivers one of the best verses of all time while both members of Mobb Deep call out all those who claim hood but have never even been to the ghetto. Probably the most intimidating song ever, Shook Ones Part II. Not for the faint od heart, or half way crooks.

5 Real Mutha********' G's - Eazy-E

One of the most gangsta songs

This is dope, it must #1

Should be in top 5

Honestly should be #1 too much thuglife

6 Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio Cover Art


A lot of people dislike the fact of rap effecting white suburbia but in my opinion this song is perfect, it tells you that other then the song itself, there is nothing in thar lifestyle for anyone, raw song.. Sends a message across.
Great lyrics, the song is an eye opener, raw heavy rap.. Its good.

Coolio is awful singer and actor but at least he made this song-masterpiece. Definitely the best Gangsta song ever in history

This song invokes the feeling of being a badass by who ever listens its lyrics are great but it's the beat that stands out from this song. sampled from stevie wonder they added a good amount of bass to the song to make it a good cruising or just chilling song. on a side note this is the best song to count money to.

Best song ever. It says it all in the gangster world. And best stripper club song too.

7 3 A.M. - Young Jeezy 3 A.M. - Young Jeezy Cover Art

Jeezy means business but.38 is better and what I do

Dis is a sick song

jeezy is for real, not one of the wanna be gangsters out there. 3 a.m. is a hardcore rap song, and is an awesome song.

8 N.Y. State of Mind - Nas N.Y. State of Mind - Nas Cover Art

Nas is the most true gangster ever

Nas is the truest gangster ever.

Nas is muchest true gangster ever

Nas is the best rapper of all time. alright? good. it looks like we all agree.

9 Who's the G - B.G. Knocc Out & Dresta
10 Boyz in the Hood - Eazy E

You should know by now... A real Compton G and a the godfather of G rap... Tupac is a legend and a poet but real G's were Ruthless all the way.
RIP Eazy and Tupac; two humble and real men and stars in g heaven now.

If your talking gangsta rap, you're talking, not my favorite song by them, but it's the one which stands most of a chance for number 1, so I'm going for it.

Most gangsta song there is, should be number one, but lil white kids don't know nothing about gangsta rap. For all they know Eminem is a thug to them.

The best song by far in the gangster rap genre. R.I. P Eazy-E you'll be remembered forever through amazing songs like this one

The Contenders

11 Remember the Name - Fort Minor Remember the Name - Fort Minor Cover Art

"Fort minor is terrible and they nobodies"

Actually, the terrible nobodies are Soulja Boy, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, etc. Fort Minor actually have talent and to be honest, You are the nobody...

Fort minor is gangsta rap, take it off the list they are terrible. Gangsta rap is The Notorious B.I. G, Dr. Dre, N.W. A, Nas, 2pac, Ice Cube etc. those type of people. Fort minor is terrible and they nobodies.

I think that fort miner has great songs but remember the name is the best

Good song but it's not a gangsta song, it's a pump up song.

12 Guerillas in tha Mist - Da Lench Mob

This song is what you put on to get pumped for sports. "I need some elbow room so I can BOOM SHAKA LACKKA BOOM". "Just like EPMD I don't like abitch named J to the A to the N to od E". Ice cube found soethi nspecial in these guys.

13 Still D.R.E. - Dr. Dre Still D.R.E. - Dr. Dre Cover Art

Sick song. There are still gangstas all across the world listening to this. Gangstas all across the world...see what I did there ; )

This is very Gangster! It hip ass gee yah know we go hard when we perfect dah beat yeah niqquh

U be bumpin that beat from DRE ever day love this song

14 Cop Killer - Body Count

Ice-T plays a cop on T.V. , that's pretty lamo, but good song, it has good beats and Ice make cops look like a pimp

You are so cool

Pretty punky to be honest, but good beat and talks about the crooked cops, and how they should, get shot in the face

15 Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta - Geto Boys Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta - Geto Boys Cover Art

Damn straight! Number 1 gangsta rap song all time!

bad ass song, love office space. as soon as I heard this song on the movie I downloaded it

İ love the Song called gangstar

*sharing my opinion.. because damn it feels good to be a gnagster*

16 In Da Club - 50 Cent In Da Club - 50 Cent Cover Art

My All time favorite song of 50 Cent.

17 Locotes - Cypress Hill Locotes - Cypress Hill Cover Art

Just listen to this while you're rollin down yo block! And please do not carry a weapon cause you might shoot a cop!

18 Who Shot Ya - The Notorious B.I.G. Who Shot Ya - The Notorious B.I.G. Cover Art

I still think this song expresses the struggle between the two, (BIG and Pac), and I like this song better than Pac's, it's more original.

This song
I reckon they shall put this song at least5-3 or yeah.. You don't mess with notorious B.I.G his big hahha step back!

You don't screw around with biggie he's better that Pac all day

Mayne, that's way better than hit 'em up...
Tupac in that song sounds like a lil' kid.

19 Why We Thugs - Ice Cube Why We Thugs - Ice Cube Cover Art

Best gangster rap ever.. To my opinion this song contains the best beat ever heard in a gangster rap song. Further more, Ice Cube delivers plenty of nice punchlines.. Just great!

I never heard any of ice cubes rap before he is the bomb ass cold rapper I'm new at this I am currently taking a computer course so I can learn how to order or download online but when I do I will be back cause I just have to get that it's hot

Belongs in the top ten if not the three

25 Gangsta Nation - Westside Connection Gangsta Nation - Westside Connection Cover Art

This is one of the most badass gangsta songs out there. When the likes of Ice Cube, Nate Dogg (rip), and the rest of WC collaborate, you know it's gonna be good.

It is definitely on my top 3 list, if not 1st. I don't know how people can not love the absolutely everything about this song

West side all the way; big city we represent
