List Rules Upvote and add all of your favorite Latin rappers.

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.

So, who are the greatest Latino and Mexican rappers? Any list of Latino rappers has to include the likes of Cypress Hill, Immortal Technique, Big Pun, Fat Joe, Lil Rob, Daddy Yankee and Pitbull. These are some of the biggest names and best Latin rappers of all time, and with good reason. Their slick rhymes, strong fan bases and catchy tunes have made these Latin hip hop artists widely known across the globe. 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? If you notice that a Latin rap artists is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best Latin rappers of all time?" and "who is the greatest Latin 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 Latin rappers that you might've heard of.
