The Best Southern Rappers of All Time

To many people, rap music is historically based in the Northeast, however, as the 1990s proved, Southern rappers are not only as force to be reckoned with, but are some of the best rappers period. Southern rap has grown from a regional form of music to being heard far and wide, and remains one of the best rap genres and easily one of the most recognizable. Southern rap encompasses rappers from Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Houston and Memphis. These are the most popular outposts for good Southern rap. The "Dirty South" sound has influenced rappers from all over the world and its impact cannot be said enough.

So, who are the best Southern rappers? If you're a fan of Southern rap, you know famous names like Outkast, T.I., Mystikal, Master P, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, the Geto Boys, Ludacris, Three 6 Mafia, and Texas rappers like Twisted Black. These are some of the names synonymous with Southern rap and with good reason. They've sold out arenas, had hit songs and have won a slew of awards, including Grammys. There's a reason why Southern hip hop remains wildly popular and it's because of the songs created by the talented rappers on this list.

That said, it's up to you to determine who are the best Southern rappers. If you notice that a Southern hip hop artist isn't on this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best southern rap bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest southern rap musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the musician's music instead of just voting for the most popular southern rap bands that you might've heard of.
