Best West Coast RappersThe best from the West. Who's the best rapper from the Westcoast.
The Top Ten
Honestly real fans of west coast rap would definitely know and maybe not believe, but if we're true fans, would be aware of the fact that without a doubt 2pac was the most influential of rappers in the west, not just for the core fans but even people that didn't care for rap we're bumping his jams. Not to mention he was at this point in his career only an estimated halfway through it before his tragic death. To have as little music as he did compared to ice cubes works for him to be where he was at was nothing less than insanely impressive. #1 worthy no questions asked.
PAC is the best selling rapper in the west cost he is just the best even dead he still had great albums because he is the chosen one period
No rapper has represented the west coast as much as 2pac.
There are so many things wrong with this list, but Tupac not being number one bothers me so much, in almost all his songs he represents the east coast and is in my opinion the second best rapper of all time right behind eminem
Cube is not only a great rapper, but he's one of the few to be in the game for round' 20 years without screwing over. (like earning a bad title, get dissed badly, caught doing something bad) He also defended the West Coast reputation from rappers like Common and Cypress Hill. If you still don't agree with me, just listen to albums like Laugh now Cry Later, Raw Footage, I am the West. This man is un-touchable.
Cube revolutionized rap, particularly gangsta rap. Cube and Eminem are the most controversial rappers of all time. Cube was writing lyrics for dre and the world class wreckin cru, as well as eazy e when he was 16-17 years old. Young talent like that cannot be overlooked. He was the powerhouse in NWA and once he left, he destroyed them with his diss track "No Vaseline". He completely took out a whole group. You cannot deny his skill. Cube is the best in the west
First of all 2pac should not be here because it said from the west and he is from New York but if it said best west coast rapper yes he should be here but it said from the west so no he should not be here. anyway ice cubes first album was great with good storys bout the street and his 2nd album was even better since he got really political and rapped about loads of different problems in america and owned nwa with one of the best diss songs ever. he was part of the most influential rap group and him himself has also made great influence. he is just a great rapper his voice and flow makes him sound so op definitely the best from the west and 2nd best west coast rapper
I don't care what pac fans say, pac never made an album better than amerikas most wanted or death certificate. Cube is king of west, being the best lyricist of NWA he practically made gangsta rap.
For me I will choose snoop as number one in west coast rapper and also number one gangstar rapper
Snoop doggy dogg is my favorite rapper. I even like his reggae
LBC cripz knw how 2 do it
Snoopy! Great Voice, coolest rapper... and mich More! He should be number 1 - BillyReaAnderson
He is a gangster, a good person, a good father, a good songwriter. He has everything that a good rapper needs
He brought the west back after a relative silence. King of the west now! After red album drops he will hold the thrown for a long time
Dude kills tracks. Listen to hate it or love it, Martians vs goblins, red nation, my life, the city, and more it's crazy how many times he has proven he can take another step
Game did it again. The documentary 2 on the shelf. He still proves he is worthy being KING OF THE WEST
Dr dre is one of the best westcoast rappers and deserves the second position, not only his lyrics but his beats are simply the dopest. He is the mentor of eminem... What else can we say.. He is the producer who can rap and control the maestro! DR DRE
Dre made the careers of 50 Cent, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and The Game. He even worked on the career of Nas. He made two of the greatest rap albums ever "The Chronic" and "2001". I could write do much more than this, but people already have written about it
Id go as far to say that Dre is the FATHER of West coast rap. He is the reason why most of these top fivers are even on this list.
I'd say he was one of the best if he had actually wrote his own lyrics. You can't be the best if you don't write your lyrics. - DaWyteNight
Eazy E, the man that brought Compton on the map. he will allways be my greatest
Number 1; the king of Compton and Godfather of Westcoast rap! Born lived and died in Compton City; Dre day was only Eazy's pay day... If he had lived maybe he would have taken a cut of Eminem too
What is Snoop Lion and The Game doing ahead os Eazy E
Man why is Eazy this far back he should be up there with Cube and Pac not wit Snoop and Ice-T
Great potential for someone this young has the same type of point of view Tupac had.
Currently the new king of the west coast, his got the game in a choke hold. His released Good Kid, M.A.A.D City which is already taken as a classic
Now this list is before TPAB, right? This guy gave west coast actual meaning. It is hard to deny that the west had a raher lyrical drag compared to the east coast, but this guy showed that the west is equally capable or lyrically conscious music, and the only difference is sound. King Kendrick Forever.
Whoever doesn't like his voice go listen to that six nine guy
Just listen to his verse on 'Check Out Time'
He's from Philly
Lorenzo is a monster. His flow and lyrics are so underrated. I loved the actor they got to be him in the movie, played him well. I feel like Ren was far more talented than Eazy and got significantly less respect. I can't really compare him to Cube cause Cube just had that persona that stood out. I feel like they are both equally as talented, but eazy doesn't belong anywhere near Ren. Ren was the man.
Come On! MC Ren actually wrote lyrics for Dre and Eazy. How can he be ranked under them? One of the most underrated rapper.
SO underrated. People think eazy e is better than ren. Ha. that's funny. Ren wrote all of his lyrics. Listen to final fronteir - LegitGames12
This guy is probably the most underrated rapper of all time! He had a huge contribution to N.W.A and his solo career wasn't that bad, despite being ignored a hell of a lot.
His credits include the classic no one can do it better and ghostwriting the chronic by dr.dre.
Listen to no one can do it better and you will understand. I'm not at straight outta Compton fan but this is my favorite west coast rapper.
Funky enough for top ten
He is from dallas Texas
"Hopsin is the best west coast rapper he should be on top"
This guy could beat 2pac like Eminem beats weezy. WESTSIDE
The craft right on
His lyrics are second to none but of course since he didn't blow up like the others on the list he gets overlooked but definitely a wordsmith like no other on the west coast in my humble opinion
Nope, not just the creator of Pimp My Ride, Xzibit is origionaly a great rapper and claimed by the westcoast. He reaped hard and also made sure that the garage he used in his show was the most westside-relative garage in California, Westcoast Customs. - UnEtH
Go listen to whats the difference then you will see why he's underrated
Most underrated rapper in my opinion.
He was east coast
Considered a pioneer in westcoast hip-hop.
One of the best Gangsters ever. His songs have a lot of meaning. Not like today's rap
Straight up menace
This man represented and still represents Compton and west coast rap all his life. He is 47 years old and releasing LP's for goodness sake!
Very underrated, one of the original gangsta rappers. Also good music for people who love the funky hip hop.
most underated rapper ever and best gangster rapper of all time
Because he from Oakland
Amerikka's Nightmare is one of my favourite albums ever, Spice 1 had such good storytelling and had a wicked flow. So talented but so underrated.
Can make you cry if he wants to and can make you laugh reminds me of the best rapper ever Eminem
WC puts the W in the west, he was in the westside connection with Ice cube And Mack 10. he needs to at least be in top 10
Westside Connections member WC has shown some of the charactaristics we miss in Biggie Smalls but can put his own origional westcoast spin on the tracks. One of the best westcoast rappers around. - UnEtH
The legend of west coast
Really underrated he should be in the top ten easily
Why is he so low what
His voice is damn smooth and cool!
R.I.P. Nate Dogg (1969 - 2011)
Blank face is already a classic
Man of The year is a dope song
Repping the west coast on a whole new level
He's trash - DaWyteNight
Great storyteller and rapper
Ever since I listened to his song tell me where to go, I've been hooked. I (of course) first got his hyphie trend setting album MY GHETTO REPORT CARD. Then got all of his block brochures and revenue retreivin albums.
Just listen to I am your. Trust me, because I played over 300 times (in counting)
YG brought the west coast back
A real gangster
Ok I'm not feeling your list anymore at all
He's the KING OF COMPTON, LA RIGHT NOW
Should be up higher
Shouldn't be in 34
Should be # 1
Cone on man yal know he should be in the top 10 at least
The realest mc of them all!
This must be an honest to god joke that he is not in the top ten. going back to the bay, rest in peace Mac Dre - Terroredneck
GOTTA BE TOP 10!
The Cuddi aka Thizzelle Washington was and still is a Bay Area Legend. he is way way way too low on this lamestream list.
The chiccin hawk is hard as hell. never got his true due
When it comes to talent in beats,rhythm, and rap flow shock g is your masta rappa.
He should be way higher
Lil Kim can move aside, the best female of rap is straight out of the westside. She has the baddest flow and can rip shreads of the majority of guys in the rap industry today. - UnEtH
He's something different I like his music he mixes it up and his songs are catchy and in
-_- do you guys know west? Listen to some Dj Quik. You may have heard some of the songs and just didn't know who they were bye! I really suggest you listen to some Dj Quik.
Top 3, behind Pac & Daz Dillinger
His speed makes him the fastest westsider and one of the best he should be no.5 or 10
Tyga has very awesome different nice talent of rapping and no one can do as he does. I think Tyga is the perfect, flawless and so fetish. I really love his style, swag, rap and everything he does.
He should be more near the top 10 this guys flow and delivery is amazing
Tyga is a fresh start for the west again
Best one at the moment
He's not a west coast rapper at all - DaWyteNight
Trash - DaWyteNight
