Over the past few decades, Latin rappers have moved from being a favorite of Latinos to achieving mainstream success. Latino hip hop emerged from the West Coast of the U.S. during the late 1980s and early 1990s and had a strong following (unsurprisingly) with Latinos in areas like Southern California. On the other side of the U.S., Latin rap emerged in Latino hotbeds like Miami and New York City. Like other rap genres, Latino hip hop lyrically took on topics that affected their lives. Over time, as mainstream Latin rap developed, the genre has moved towards party anthems with big beats and catchy hooks. No matter what you think of the early Spanglish rappers, today's Latin rappers are some of the biggest names in music, with some being among the greatest rappers alive.

These are some of the biggest names and best Latin rappers of all time, and with good reason.

Latino rappers are widely popular not only among the Spanish speaking audience, but English fans as well.That said, who are the best Latino rappers?
