Best Gangsta Songs Ever

The Top Ten

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

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

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. - anthonybecerra831

No one can beat him, believe me, Tupac is the god of rap, the best rapper ever, and still I never found the same rapper like him

He the king of rap

2 Remember the Name - Fort Minor Remember the Name - Fort Minor

best there ever was, best there ever will be

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

"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 amazing,not gangster but there awesome,like how they get on this list lol?

3 Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio

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

I can connect with this song I lived this live since the age of 15 and by the time I was 27 I was indicted for smuggling 75 tons of cocaine with willy and sal

Best Gangsta song while maybe except the croosroads

Should be No1

4 Cop Killer - Body Count

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

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

5 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.

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

DAYUM, dis tune wrecks any tunee. so str8 gangsta
this song MADE gangsta rap

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! - Lasvegasxavier

Tells the story of the lives of NWA and how they spoke up about the black lives and Eazy e s life and death

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

18 Welcome to Detroit City - Big Eff
19 Gangsta Nation - Westside Connection Gangsta Nation - Westside Connection

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.

West side all the way; big city we represent

I like your video

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
