Top 50 Hip Hop Artists

yellow strip

This is a personal list of top hip hop artists in the music industry in recent years. The list was compiled not by units sold, but by the artistic merit of the album.

If you feel I have missed a few great hip hop artists, forgive me, there are so many!

To limit the list I concentrated on artists that had at least one classic album and gave special emphasis to any artist independently produced. Contact me about any artists if you feel they should be on the list.

Click on artist for discography, reviews or to purchase album.

“Captivating, raw and uncensored...”
- The Weekly Press

To protect his mother, teenager Clinton Ray a.k.a. Black must run away from his home. Forced to mingle with the worst elements and conditions of urban life, he meets Face, Penny and Zero. Together they fend for the American Dream.

Inevitably, experience provokes Black to observe his friends, his lifestyle and his own aspirations. In his journey of self-discovery, Black must learn how to survive on the streets of Chicago, alter his life decisions or perish in the confusion of life.
