The Top Ten
1 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

6 StenJoddi

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.

7 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.

10 Supaman

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.

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.
