Best Native American Rappers

Native Rappers make a great deal of social-political commentary on numerous issues from racism, to political corruptions and social injustice.
The Top Ten

Supa Man is Native Hip Hop! There is no question about his Native Heritage. The lyrics are fresh and rez! No other rapper says I'm from the rez and I still point with my lips. That's keeping it real rez. If you want positivity. He has that as there are not cuss words in his music and he is good family Christian man. Drug and alcohol free. Preaching the word of God. Don't get no better then that! Much Blessings to Supa Man!

He is the best! He is not afraid to share his heritage or his belief in God the Father. Supaman is one of a kind. Our native kids need his type of good energy.. Thanks to his family for allowing him to share with us all..

Supaman gets it! He speaks the truth from experience. He tells it like it is. I love how he raps about Heavenly Father and unity for all. Hands down, he's the # 1 American Indian Hip Hop artist.

Always uplifting. Supaman uses humor and truth to entertain and bring hope and honor to our people. Not only is he the best rapper but he is also the best fancy dance.

City Natives

City Natives is a canadian aboriginal based group consisting of four members: Beaatz, IllFundz, Gearl & BnE. Originating from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, all four members whom are closely affiliated with one another, decided to form what they consider as an "unstoppable" alliance. Individually, they all possess certain styles and aspects of the hip-hop industry. From underground to mainstream, they have combined their talents together to provide an original and unique style of music that differentiates them from other artists. As solo artists, they've all built a solid resume for themselves over the years as well as gained numerous fans through-out all of Canada. Working together, the group found themselves nominated for Aboriginal Recording Of The Year through the East Coast Music Awards of 2013. Without a debut album, they've certainly done well for themselves and continue to represent their people as well pursue the dreams they've set out to fulfill. With your continuous support ...more

I'm so proud of these young men. Their music touches so many people in so many different ways. Their lyrics comes from their hearts and you can tell when you listen to the words. I'm one proud Mom of one of these guys but I'm also proud of each and everyone of them that brings their own unique talent out. !

I know BnE and from what I see the boys his with got a lot of grind and I don't see a problem with this group of natives making it too the top. lots of success to the city natives and congratulations with all your success. Keep it real! WESTSIDE for life!

They speak from the heart. The passion comes out in the lyrics. They represent the east coast with extreme presents. No joke. They should be national. International. Doing shows with a member of the Wu Tang Clan. They are for real. Recgnize.


Okay first I like to say keep up the good woe bro. Second we have to go up big hills and small hills. Third be your self and have fun all the time man. Fourth keep making them beats and rhymes we will make it to the top together. Tahoo! Annie! Quay! Much love. Oh yeah as that the fifth one? Laugh out loud

"Lovin' the motivation inspiration vibrations, ripplin' cross the Nation, proud to call you my relaation JREZ's time he ain't wastin', like a salmon, up stream he may be facin', no he don't need be racin', for this shift in his situation, is the sustained appropriation of this gift we call LIFE. Best wishes because, don't know if you know, but you continue to inspire, INDspire, us Natives to acquire and transpire the visions and hopes of the prohpetic 8th Fire! " JREZ... Gchi miigwetch.. it's epic.

J-Rez is probably my fave out of any Nish Artist. Its inspiring to see a member of the community telling a story of an everyday aboriginal. His presence is humbling as well as motivating.

J-Rez is the best native rapper I know, he makes good music and I would love to do a song with him or be on his album.

Red Cloud

RedCloud is By far the best Freestyler I have ever met! Hands down the King of the battle rap game, creative & a master in all his flows and skills. Very theatrical lyrics he puts down. He's comes highly recommended! Don't miss out!

Red Cloud, hands down the illest freestyle rapper ever. Heard his stuff and was hooked. He's doing a lot for himself as well as the rest of lightning cloud. He has my vote.

I've had the chance to meet n speak with Red Cloud & Crystal Lightning while they were out in because last year.

Coped there cd, enjoyed it, heard him kill it in the freestyles, been hooked ever since.

I've known him since the beginning, the boy cannot be stopped, he takes on all challengers and buries them where they stand.


My man is very talented and very determined to challenge himself to become better and better with each album he has. I'm very proud of this man, he deserves to be on top!

After only one of his shows I was completely hooked by this lyrical genius. All his music makes you wanna move around. He sticks to his roots n that is native pride right there

This dude is flat out the dopest out today and could easily compete at the professional level if giving the right backing...I'm watching in anticipation for him to rise above em all! #Tattoomuzik

He's a great rapper and really came from the bottom and from nothing like he raps about so Joddi just keep it real and never forget where you came from.


Awesome to have Native rappers... And I especially like how you have your wife Lucille included in your music. I sincerely hope the people in the villages will be able to see performances live.

I've doing music with smoke and he's awesome... he puts energy in who ever he spit with... he's like my lil bro but on the real he's tight... and I have major love and respect for my natives... Big up 2 my Seminole Indians in Florida

Awesome rapper. He raps about real life stuff not just meaningless words on paper. He done songs with my cousin abnormal and my step nephew Shaun. I could listen to his rhymes all day

Halfsmoked is a talented Native rapper who has been featured on Alaska statewide television specials and has music available on YouTube, ITunes and Soundcloud.


I love that you can follow his growth by just listening to his albums. There's no doubt in my mind that his music is part of him 100%. It's good that our young people have contemporary role models that show our culture to be something to take pride in, that listening to our Elders is crucial, and to have fun with it!

Not only can Mr. Litefoot rap, but is very inspirational speaker, been to a few leactures and I give that man a lot of respect for what he has done for all native Americans in Indian Country.

Man it's been a grip since I've heard litefoot's rap so glad to find it again from keith white eagle out in auburn wa. On the muckleshoot rez.

You had change my life I truly believe in heritage back when the elders reallu cared about kids

Beat Vandalz

They are amazing at what they do. From the bars they spit, to their ability to get a crowd hyped. These guys are the full package. While sticking to hip hops true art forms! Go Beat Vandalz!

I voted because they are selfless artists. Their drive begins with their love for music, and also members of the group use their gifts to help those in need.

The progression of these guys are exemplary destined for greatness

They have a great sound and a big following will be the next to go on the road and hit it BIG.

Chase Manhattan

Great vibes that rep the Twin Cities urban Native experience. More than a rapper... Always there supporting issues that affect our community.

Chase has got it down for all the nation's people. "My favorite hater" is unique and good lyrics.

Cool dude and he's stayed humble when people would criticize him... Definitely respect that

He's a cold piece just like the land he reps. And never forgets to rep for his people and culture. Much love n respect for my niiji chase. Go get it my brothas. 612 NATIVE PRIDE! !

Brandis B. Knudsen

Hailing from South Dakota, one of the quickest rising Native American artists in the industry with his self-titled debut album featuring Hopsin, Spice 1, G. Baby Prince of G-Unit West, and platinum producer Lex Lucazi recording sales across five different countries and having been nominated for five music awards.

I saw what you said on Facebook so I decided to help you hope you get to the top

His remake of Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love" will be a classic single!

His self-titled debut album B. of Dakota South Records is a classic!

The Contenders
Quese IMC

Quese IMC! Is one of my favorite Rappers of all time! He came to my school Uintah River and talked to us about life and showed us one of his songs that I Love called "I resist" ft. Caspa I think? But it took me a long time to find that song because I forgot what his name was when he left? But now I know and wont forget! Best Native Rapper I heard of!

Showing our future generations there is a life beyond drugs and booz. Sharing his passion for healing Mother Earth and standing up against those who are tearing her apart.

Dude is real and tells the truth!

From day's of way bacc when Sup was breakdancin' he been Michael Jaccson bad!

Maniac: The Siouxpernatural

One of the only Native MCs to make harder, darker hip-hop, super lyrical

Maniac is dope lyrics n flow on tact always got something new to bring to the table


Music from the heart!

MidWest Hip Hop Artist. Hails from, Cheyenne River, SD. Night Shield Entertainment.

Night Shield

Great vocalist and song writer - does not pretend to be anything he is not. What you see is what you get; Night Shield speaks his mind and does not let critics bother him. Very entertaining both on and off the stage too.

My Kola Gabe NS has all the moves an skillz to be Flowing with the Best of The Best.. I Travel the Country, an I see this guy in a lot of places making moves.. Night Shield #1 in the Midwest an still making his way to the Top.. Ride Or Die...

He been the only one making moves in so dak that's been making appearances or the younger crowds... Not afraid to show his people love and is still repping where he's from

James Blood

The best in the Native market. Hands down.

His voice sounds like he is black

The hardest Native in the game!

Realist native in the game.

Wab Kinew

Being a part of "Dead Indians", he was and continues to be one of the most important musicians in Indian country. His extremely conscious and relevant lyrics mixed with an unmatched flow makes him a threat to any wack rapper. This dude is legit and has lived what he reps.

The best role model, positive message

Great voice for native youth

Winnipeg's Most

The best native rap group that just ain't categorised in the native genre

Charlie Fettah, Brooklyn, and Jon-C gotz the most skillz hands down. Flows are always on point, and they have classic beats or club bangers...

Great music and club bangers. Tons of personality and talent.

I love this music

Buggin Malone

Buggin malone is a jerk. Lies about living a good life, but is an active alcoholic, who doesn't put his family first. He is a cheat. That is why his wife left him. He will never get my choice at anything. He is fraud. He doesn't live by his words, he does the opposite. I know him also from Nekoosa.

Buggin Malone's music is great he has a lot of really meaningful things in his lyrics. The messages that he puts into his music is a welcome change from all of the other music out there. He is definitely an amazing artist.

Hau Kola! Mitakuye Oyasin! Buggin Malone is the shiznit! I bought his first 2 CDs from him when he was working in Nekoosa. He flows lyrics that any inner city person can relate to, and keeps it all about the Movement, his heritage and his family. He will always get madd props from me. May He Always Walk in the Sunlight of the Spirit!

The BEST EVER no matter what any of you haters say about him. At least he makes a difference for TRUE NATIVES! Who else is? AIM is proud as well as leaders throughout the country.

Tall Paul

True Hip Hop, True MC. Not a copy cat poser like majority of people on this list. Doesn't rely on being a "Native Rapper" like most of the people on this. He can hang with anybody on the mic in any circle.

Very active in the community as well as in the local hip hop scene. His lyrics are deep and real. He has a song called Prayers in a Song that has the Ojibwe language in the chorus

The only native rapper from Minnesota to incorporate his indigenous language into a song. (prayers in a Song)

The only native rapper to incorporate his indigenous language into a song (prayers in a song)

Rez Hogs

This group right here should be number one best group ever the Quarterback deserves it

Hands down the most lyrical and diverse group.

YakaVegas all day everyday...

War Party

War party got that message

Tru Rez Crew

These guys rock parties. Worth booking

Old school like Public Enemy!


His Story has been told in many diffrent ways an its more spiritual

Grew up with a part of ny life with my brother Gabe aka Yaiva. Reppin "SSBP" in Shiprock N.M.. Much respect to my brother. Stay up bro.

Naatanii Means

It is refreshing to hear from a young lyricist with passion, meaningful messages with real depth! He sparks the coals where AIM was once a roaring fire within us all as American Indians - we need this young man in our lives! Love, The Radical!

Lyrics about real life, real people, real truth. About struggle, things most people struggle with every day. Don't get more real than him. Lyrics to wake thus nation, this generation.

I love his social relevance and heart while being firm and strong in his words... And the way he looks right at you at times... In your face, strong, with heart. REAL MEANS.

Lyrics with a meaning and songs with a real message of truth for our people


Real hip hop nothing waters down very humble guy... He does it for the love of hip hop... And not the money reall hip hop head

Timeless, classic, plain ill.
