List Rules Only famous hip hop artists from Houston

The Houston rap scene (and the entire Southern rap scene for that matter) was a reaction to the 80s rap movement that was already happening, quite famously, in New York and LA.

By the early 90s, the Geto Boys were among the first from the area to break big nationally. And when southern hip hop was sped up, DJ Screw started slowing the tempo down. He, along with Oklahoma’s Dj Dinero And Dj Z-Nasty, popularized the Chopped And Screwed sub-genre in the Mid South fairly early on in the movement’s history. In 2000,  UGK made a cameo on Jay-Z's smash hit "Big Pimpin’" and also on Three Six Mafia’s "Sippin' on Some Syrup". Soon after, Mike Jones achieved mainstream success as did Paul Wall, and Houston’s influence on rap and hip hop was solidified.

Here’s a list of Houston rappers who’ve left an indelible mark on the game. Don’t forget to add and vote on your favorites!
