The Top Ten
Z-RO Joseph Wayne McVey IV, better known by his stage names Z-Ro and The Mo City Don, is an American rapper from Houston, Texas.

Hands down best rapper ever no one even comes close

Z Ro is the realest on any coast hands down! I've got 25 songs that are TOP NOTCH from Ro... Screw 4 Life

My vote on Ro as always!

Jazzy Red

Best black rapper out of Houston. South Park Mexican is best Mexican Rapper out of Houston. Hands Down both these artist are great at what they do.

Trae tha Truth

trae is one of the realest rapper to hit the streets on the cool. I got love for any one trying to come up in this world. knowing how it feels is just the beginning

cause no matter where he go he stays the same. no drugs or nothing just str* like it is

Great going' for a cool rapper. He's got talent and will keep on stayin' cool. Yeah, no drugs. Stays straight. Knows where its at. He's real, the deal.

King of the streets, can't say nothing. - nonofyall

Bun B Bernard Freeman, known by his stage name Bun B, is an American rapper and was one half of the southern rap duo UGK.

Are You kidin me these cats got nothing on the underground kings UGK 4 Life

Bun B should not be this low on the list

Bun B should be top 3. Trill for real

Chamillionaire being higher on this list than Scarface and Bun B is a straight up travesty.

SLIM THUG Slim Thug gained mainstream attention for his contribution to the popular single from rapper Mike Jones, "Still Tippin'".

slim thug and boss hogg outlaws realest rappers ever best music ever done

He is tremendously good to me as I have listened to him almost for 10 years but he is comin back with some new music which is really getting his name more known and is getting people to like him as a rapper and entertainer but there is lack in meaning and therefore nobody will look up to him as a role model.

He keeps it real an let's you knw he run the streets

Slim Thug is one of the best to come from H-Town, but lets not forget about the white boy Paul Wall


South Park Mexican, all politics aside, I think he was/is quite the lyricist. Created beats and lyrics really hardcore and original, I.E. "Graveyard", "Mexican Radio", "Mary Go Round", "I Must Be High", etc. As well as strongly helped build up the chopped and screwed scene of music (even though not all of us like C&S music, I include it because it was a style in music).

SPM was the inspiration to many struggling from the hood and pushing passed our "Limits" he not only had a flow that hit with the most powerful grace we could hear, he also dropped the heaviest of beats.

SPM also was a four-father and leader in Latino culture and a strong presence in the hearts of many southern and Latino American's.

SPM is one of two rappers (SPM, and Tupac) to give rise to a struggling American in the ghetto, not only in poverty and low classed, but handicapped with lung disease, and deafness. He gave rise to a young Houston man named Joshua S. from Maple Leaf who is now an Opera ...more

as I was learning english I was also learning about rap and I owe it to spm for introducing me to the rap and most of all to dj screw w the power moves

Spm would have to be one of the best rappers in houston hands down. As I was growing up in the same nieborhood as spm I was listening to him as a kid I was inspired. I am also stuck in some of the same situations as him and listening to what he hgas to say really helped me know what to do.

Not only does he have just about the same background story as every other rapper, but he has the absolute realist lyrics out there. His lyrics speak for themselves so just pay close attention to his lyrics and you'll definitely see this is true.

K-Rino Eric Kaiser (born 9 September 1970), better known by his stage name K-Rino, is an American rapper and record producer from Houston, Texas. He is a pioneer of the Southern hip hop scene, and has been rapping since 1983. K-Rino's first release was the single "rocking It" with his group Real Chill in 1986, more.

The best lyricist hands down the most underrated rapper in Houston not a rapper dead or alive can hold a candle to K-Rino 30 years in the game and still getting stronger every single album gotta love K-Rino for that timeless and priceless and the most humble dude you will ever meet

K-RINO is ahead of his time, deepest lyricist, unlimited creativity, good flows and good sound, strictly underground, no one has come close to match his unprecedented discography in the rap history.

Head and Leader of The South Park Coalition, Best Rapper and Lyricist for Years. SPC4Life!

Rino is one of the best and realest Rappers of all time. He was one of the first and it looks like he wanna be one of the last. love him... SPC 4 Life!

DJ Screw

So six artists out of the top 10 are either direct results of the movement he started, or were actually artists that were on the first gray tapes themselves. Yes, it is a travesty that he is not in the top ten. We're talking about someone who deserves a Houston landmark for crying out loud!

Dude made chopped and screwed.. Come on.

For one dj screw should be number one cause without him this list wouldn't be here cause more than half of these rappers wouldn't have made it if it wasnt for him he's the one that brought them into the spotlight so yea this list is WACK! Yall need to know the roots of htown rap get sum knowlege in yo system!

Love Screw but I would consider him a producer/DJ much more than a rapper? - Erucu

SCARFACE Brad Terrence Jordan, better known by his stage name Scarface, is an American rapper, music producer, and author.

Not even much of a question. Face is by far the best Houston rapper he is the best lyricist and he influenced all these guys and to have Chammillionaire and spm ahead of him is a disgrace. Now Z-Ro is good but please Face owns him to.
All real hip-hop fans vote for Scarface.
- Chris-1

Nothing but classic's... put the light on h town and Texas. great story teller

scarface paved the way 4 all the guys on this list. Respect the game. Facemob #1

King of the South. You got lame like t. I and all them arguing about the king of the south crap while scarface is on the thrown. Scarface owns spm and cham I think Z-Ro is the prince of the south I'll say that but scarface is the king. - ChrisHenry

CHAMILLIONAIRE Hakeem Seriki, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Houston, Texas, better known by his stage name Chamillionaire.

You should listen to his song hip-hop police, which features SLICK RICK
of all people. Name one Texas rapper that colllaberated with a rapper as good as Slick Rick.

I can't believe this can should be on top I know everybody says this that he's the most underrated rapper alive but he really is. Stay fresh cm

King Koopa is a beast on the Mic if you don't understand how good he truly is go listen to get ya mind correct and chamillionaire's greatest hits the of run c one. Even if the tip of my dick was ashy you misses would still harass me about doing the nasty mouth glassy looking like a swallow a mirror gotta brush my teeth with Windex to see my I ice no clearer- koopa

Cham manages to keep making high quality music. Even though he has been having a long delay on his Poison album, he's still released several albums, such as Elevate and Reignfall. He releases songs on his YouTube page and on and interacts with fans. I have to say, he is certainly the coolest rapper, particularly towards the quality of his music and the dedication to his fans.


one of the early h-town rap pioneers!

he is the best out of houston so is pimp c R.I.P



The Contenders

Levi Cev is a gifted artist and performer. His diversified talent offers something for every age. Not to mention his lyrics is something one can relate to as they are about real life issues. He holds nothing back, keeps it real on and off the stage 100% and Never gives up. Can't wait to see him in the top 10 soon.

This is ridiculous... Levi Cev should be in the top 10... We need to wake up and start voting. Stop sleeping on good talent.

He's hot! Love his music.. I mean how did Mike Jones makes the top ten and he didn't...I know he colder than mike and a lot of these other rappers in the list

Breathe is a masterpiece I'm in love with it. Thought about suicide until I heard that song I had to just breathe thank you

Lil' Flip

Not sure I would put flip at this rank... Candy freestyles and when the beef came out he's gangsta. Like his music to an extent, but there is way more talent on H Towns Underground scene in my opinion.

Lil flip done went platinum twice kids. only rapper out the H to do it. He came up with the og dj screw enough said. oh ya n the boy can freestyle for ever

be serious the cat is a beast by the way i bought his ablum 25 times

LIl FLip should be up there wit slim thug

Dat Boy Grace
Lil' Keke

ke ke supposed to be up there at least top five or even top three yal trippn h town texas



he is a legend on the mic top 5 better than number 5-8 - southsideallday

Big Mello Curtis Donnell Davis, better known by his stage name Big Mello, was an American rapper from Houston, Texas.

Disrespectful to have him this low. Ain't no way Paul Wall, Chamilionaire, Slim Thug, Mike Jones and Kirko Bangz are better than Mello! - DaWyteNight


"C-Note, quote unquote, that's what me and Fat Pat wrote! " C-Note's been doing it for a minute!

Big Mike Michael Barnett, better known by his stage name Big Mike, is an American rapper from Houston, Texas. He was originally a member of the rap duo Convicts with Houston-based rapper Mr. 3-2. This album would be the first of many releases Mike would put out on Rap-A-Lot Records.

Doe from the N.O. the nation kno him outta South Park. A tru smooth lyricsist. That's the peter man.

Maxo Kream

Very new upcoming rapper but I feel he is going to be up there with z-ro his freestyles are the realest


Most underrated rapper in Houston! Big Love has been spitting flames since Representin' Real 1996 and is still on point! He was spitting lyrics when everyone else was screwed up, then he showed that was no problem when he was on Swisha House Northside 9!

Houston's Best Officially! Realer than every rapper in the top ten. Early H-town Rap Pioneer, President of the Nawfside!

"Sometimes" will always be on repeat... that song hit home

Mannnn! Big Love and D of Trinity Garden Cartel killed that WHAT A PLAYA WONT DO FOR YOU!

Chingo Bling

One of the best performers on stage! House Of Blue's Chingo Bling Show was sick mayn. House of Blues was sold out! I even started followin him on twitter @ChingoBling Definitely on

Kirko Bangz Kirk Jerel Randle (born August 20, 1989), better known by his stage name Kirko Bangz, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer signed to Atlantic Records. He is best known for his single, "Drank In My Cup" which was released in 2011 and peaked at number 28 on the US Billboard Hot more.

Kirko Bangz is the best rapper coming from Houston Texas, he puts it all out there, here talking the truth, he's also the finnest rapper alive and I think he should come do more shows up in his home town " Houston "!
I really am like in love with his music and he is just awesome and knows what he is talking about, not like all the other rappers that just be cursing out their and not knowing what their saying!

Kirko is the next generation of tx rap he has made a original sound of his own but is easy to see where his roots came from,

Kirko is the best rapper ever there's never a time when I am not jamming to his songs

Kirk is the best all around in my opinion! Newcomer to many but he been on the scene!



Just heard this new song by Devin called UFO's it's sick! The dude should be top 10 4sho

One of the realist hook men that I know know on any track! Beast mode he should be in the top ten

Devin WITHOUT A DOUBT deserves to be at the top of this list.

Mike Jones

There's just something about Mike Jones. When he broke in the mainstream, he seemed to be everywhere! We are still waiting for his revival...

I'm moving to Houston just because the environment and Mike Jones and Paul wall

I'm from South Houston and I have met lil flip I have been to Kappa beach party and I have smoked with Mike Jones. Who Mike Jones! He's a living legend! By the way I'm a white girl.

Who? - DaWyteNight


Love his music and really is a great person, Just real and down to earth. People's Champ

Amazing metaphor rapper, rocks his grills, hood legend, completely underrated

Walking legend. Master of metaphors and king of the parkin' lot. Definitely underestimated in the scene.

Should be listed in the top 5! Always representing Texas to the fullest. Got much love for Paul Wall. Love love love his music. You know with Paul wall, Any track he's on, it's going to be a hit!
