Over the past decade, Chicano hip hop has grown tenfold in terms of popularity and influence. Mixing gangsta rap and Latin hip hop, many of the Chicano rappers are Latin Americans, in particular Mexicans. Chicano rap melds in between English and Spanish language lyrics, and while primarily known to be a genre associated with the Southwestern United States, it has expanded globally. You'd be surprised to learn that the best Chicano rappers have followings in places like Australia, New Zealand and Japan. These rappers also incorporate regional music as well.

So who are the best Chicano rappers? Any list of Chicano hip hop artists has to include Lil Rob, Serio, Brownside, DJ Laz, Jonny Z and Cypress Hill. These rappers are closely associated with Chicano rap and with good reason. Widely respected and their influence in the genre can't be disputed. As Chicano rap rises in popularity, the best Chicano rappers should be noted and recognized like they do on this list.

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