Top 10 Best Native American Rap Artists

Native rappers make a great deal of socio-political commentary on numerous issues. These range from racism to political corruption and social injustice.
The Top Ten
1 City Natives

City Natives is a Canadian Aboriginal-based group consisting of four members: Beaatz, IllFundz, Gearl, and BnE. Originating from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, all four members, who 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 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 throughout 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 as pursue the dreams they've set out to fulfill. With your continuous support and unconditional love for real music and Aboriginal talent, it's certain that they will succeed in time!

2 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. They stick to hip hop's true art forms! Go Beat Vandalz!

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

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

3 Halfsmoked

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.

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 have worked with Halfsmoked since he was a teenager. Dedication and creativity have always been his strong points. He is the real deal and speaks from his heart.

4 Geno

Very well known in the White Mountain Apache Tribe! Always repping the Apache Tribe! Very humble dude, and his music is banging.

5 R.E.D.D.

Niawenkowa R.E.D.D. for representing our Mohawk nation, teaching our children to grow up without drugs and alcohol, and sharing your talent with us! Showing our next generation how to make an honest living without evil! Andy.

REDD is going straight to the top this year! Keep up the good work, fellas! Keep killing it!

Still waiting to get one of those exclusive CDs, but anything you guys have done is awesome. Keep repping your Rez, guys. Stuart

6 Sten Joddi

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

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.

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

7 Red Cloud

Red Cloud is by far the best freestyler I have ever met! Hands down the king of the battle rap game, creative and a master in all his flows and skills. He delivers very theatrical lyrics. He comes highly recommended! Don't miss out!

Red Cloud is, hands down, the illest freestyle rapper ever. I heard his stuff and was hooked. He's doing a lot for himself and for the rest of Lightning Cloud. He has my vote.

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

8 54 Hundred

Apacheland artist that speaks of the struggle and brings a sound that can only be called Arizona.

9 Shawdi

Congratulations, Nephew. This is a well-deserved accomplishment for you. I'm so proud to know Grip A Lot had a part in building your career.

10 Supaman

Supaman 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 no cuss words in his music, and he is a good family Christian man. Drug and alcohol-free. Preaching the word of God. Doesn't get any better than that! Much blessings to Supaman!

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.

The Contenders
11 King Blizz

King Blizz definitely has some bangers and brings that mainstream sound and flavor. Smooth rhymes and killer tracks. Arizona freshman, expect to hear more from this cat.

Dope song. The best out now. Check out my boy King Blizz's Money & Power.

12 Ashkii Lee
13 J-Rez

First, I'd like to say keep up the good work, bro. Second, we have to go up big hills and small hills. Third, be yourself and have fun all the time, man. Fourth, keep making those beats and rhymes. We will make it to the top together. Tahoo! Annie! Quay! Much love. Oh yeah, is that the fifth one? Laugh out loud.

"Loving the motivation, inspiration, and vibrations, rippling across the Nation. Proud to call you my relation. J-Rez's time he ain't wasting, like a salmon, upstream he may be facing, no he doesn't need to be racing, 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 prophetic 8th Fire!" J-Rez... Gchi miigwetch... it's epic.
