Rappers to Watch in 2021
Each year, there are new variables that shape the success of up-and-coming artists. And as we enter 2021, there are more questions than answers about what will unfold in the next 12 months. Will a new app like TikTok pop up and change the way people share and consume new music? How will virtual events evolve as the pandemic continues? Will festivals and major concerts return by the end of the year? Despite the uncertainty, however, there are clues that indicate which artists are closing in on their big breakout moments. Throughout 2020, new rappers figured out ways to make a splash during an extremely tumultuous year, and many of them show signs that they’re about to level up in 2021.
For the purposes of this list, we excluded artists who have been featured on our Rappers to Watch lists in past years. So, while we expect to see rappers like Baby Keem (2019’s list) and Flo Milli (2020’s list) have big years in 2021, you won’t see their names here. We also tried to avoid artists who were all over our Best of 2020 lists, like Sada Baby and 42 Dugg, so we could leave more room for rappers who we expect to break through and reach much larger audiences on a national level than they have in the past. So, if you want to stay ahead of the curve on what’s happening in rap and get a preview of what the future of the genre will sound like, here are the artists to keep an eye on. These are Complex’s picks for the rappers to watch in 2021.
Listen:Ka, “I Love (Mimi, Moms, Kev)”
Lil Baby / 42 Dugg: “We Paid”
With the touring industry stalled in 2020, it seemed like every rapper on Earth tried to make up for the loss with their very own digital deluxe reissue, padding out recent albums with extra tracks. For the most part, though, quality lacked. Only one artist made his album better with its deluxe edition: Lil Baby, who added a number of great songs to My Turn. None were greater than “We Paid,” his triumphant collaboration with protégé 42 Dugg. Baby plays the elder statesman on the quietly menacing track, rapping more ferociously than usual while letting Dugg take the lead. “We Paid” is smooth and confident: If you can’t hustle like you used to, Baby suggests, find new ways to flourish. –Matthew Strauss
Listen:Lil Baby / 42 Dugg, “We Paid”
Lil Uzi Vert: “POP”
Lil Uzi Vert just beamed down in a pair of Balenciaga jeans that cost more than your biweekly paycheck (before taxes), and he is ready to rap. “Straight bars,” he announces at the top of “POP,” before making good on that promise with the kind of stream-of-consciousness spree we haven’t heard since Lil Wayne’s mixtape heyday. Listening to this song is like living in a Sonic the Hedgehog speedrun—it’s zany, breakneck, and features a surprising number of ’90s references (congratulations My Cousin Vinny and Cindy Crawford, you are now Uzi-approved). Over an intergalactic beat that churns and gurgles like Jabba the Hutt with an upset stomach, Uzi rifles through flex after flex about everything from his gleaming fists to his minty-fresh dick to his (why not) “multi, multi, multi, multi, multi-grain” granola bars. It’s a direct line into one of music’s nimblest minds. –Ryan Dombal

Listen:Lil Uzi Vert, “POP”
Lil Wayne: “Mahogany”
Come for the rapping, stay for the rapping. From “A Milli” to “Uproar,” Wayne has always saved his best performances for breathless, riotously funny word sprays like these, technical showcases that render language into putty, and here’s he prodded on a jolting Mannie Fresh that never lets Wayne break his stride. One word to riff on and the right beat: That’s how little it takes for Wayne to recapture his glory. Lil Wayne may not make hits like he used to, but he can still make these. –Evan Rytlewski
Listen:Lil Wayne, “Mahogany”
Megan Thee Stallion: “Savage Remix” [ft. Beyoncé]
The “Savage Remix” leak hit in April like an intravenous drip of caffeine and glitter, lifting the masses out of their doldrums, if only for four minutes. Megan Thee Stallion had only grown as a beacon of that-bitch-ism since 2019, but joined by one of the 21st century’s greatest entertainers, she became bolder. In their verses on the remix, Meg and Bey owned their sex appeal, their smarts, and their success, inviting you to own yours, too. In the months that followed, Megan would go from joyously dancing to the track in her kitchen, to performing it on an elaborate dystopian stage in the desert, to making a heart-wrenching political statement with it at 30 Rock. After Megan had been shot, mocked, and gaslit, the “Savage Remix” evolved from a confident anthem to an assertion of her complex, endangered humanity. –Mankaprr Conteh

Listen:Megan Thee Stallion, “Savage Remix” [ft. Beyoncé]
Mulatto: “Muwop” [ft. Gucci Mane]
On “Muwop,” Mulatto sounds as confident as ever, flipping the script on Gucci Mane’s “Freaky Gurl.” Unbothered, she rolls off a catalog of unmatchable flexes: million-dollar label meetings, iced-out watches, and an inbox filled with message requests. “This boy think I love him, bitch, I'm Big Latto not Susie,” she scoffs. What makes “Muwop” so great isn’t Big Latto throwing a fresh coat of paint on one of Gucci’s biggest hits—it’s watching a legend warmly embrace an all-new generation of Atlanta rappers that grew up listening to him. –Brandon Callender

Noname: “Song 33”
At the apex of this summer’s racial-justice uprising, Noname released the J. Cole diss track “Song 33.” He had launched the first volley with “Snow on tha Bluff,” a grating whinge about being out-woked by a woman widely presumed to be Noname. She swats him away handily, the diss track equivalent of receiving a long text and dismissing it with a “K.” Its opening line, delivered in her characteristic hush, reflects decades of Black radical feminist critique: “I see a demon on my shoulder, it’s looking like patriarchy.” After coolly ethering Cole—over a cascading Madlib beat, no less—Noname busies herself with more important things: eulogizing murdered activist Toyin Salau, highlighting the crisis of violence against trans women, name-checking George Floyd, and calling for a break up of Amazon. And it only takes her a minute. –Rawiya Kameir
The 10 Best Rappers of All Time
Diehard fans, music nerds and critics love lists. But in rap, rankings like this take on a special level of import: aside from moving a crowd (shouts to Rakim), MC means proving you’re the best. In no other genre do artists so blatantly express their desire to outdo competition. That made Billboard's editorial list a more high-stakes undertaking than usual. Many favorites -- Kane, Drake, KRS -- didn’t make it, and each of those omissions hurts deep down. Note: we’re ranking these folks as MCs, not artists. That’s why Dr. Dre and Kanye West, for example, two legendary producer-rappers who don’t match the mic skills of those listed here, were left out. Even Tupac, perhaps the most influential rapper ever globally, is arguably known more for great songwriting than dominant bars.

If you were a fan of West Coast rap at the end of the 1980s and early 1990s, the odds are pretty high that you're familiar with gangsta rap, one of the most popular rap subgenres. The lyrics focus on thug and gangster life and has elements of hardcore hip hop weaved in. Many gangsta rappers were affiliated with gangs and they weren't afraid to boast of their involvement and what activities that their respective gangs were involved in. Gangsta rappers were among the most feared rappers of the time, yet, achieved widespread commercial success due to the harsh realities that were expressed in their lyrics and unmistakable beats that were as catchy as they were innovative. Over time, gangsta rap has come to incorporate rappers from the East Coast as well, but for the most part, those formative years were where the West Coast was closely associated with the genre.
So, who are the best gangsta rappers? Any list of gangsta rappers has to include the likes of Tupac Shakur, Ice T, Snoop Dogg, DMX, 50 Cent and N.W.A. When you think of gangsta rap, you generally will consider the rappers on this list to be the most important voices in the genre. If not for the gangsta rap artists on this list, rap music as as whole may not have expanded in the way it has and the lyrics certainly wouldn't have been as revolutionary if not for gangsta rap.
That said, it's up to you to determine who are the best gangsta rappers. This list answers the questions "who are the best gangsta rap bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest gangsta 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 gangsta rap bands that you might've heard of.

Rappers to Watch in 2020
We’re just two weeks deep in a new year, and there’s a fresh crop of rappers who are ready to take over 2020 and define the sound of the next decade. But as rap continues to get more stylistically diverse, there isn’t a single aesthetic that ties all these new artists together. At the same time that Brooklyn artists like Pop Smoke and Fivio Foreign are carving out a lane for themselves with hard-hitting drill music, rappers like Rod Wave and 2KBABY are thriving with music that sits on the more melodic side of hip-hop. Meanwhile, Kenny Mason, MAVI, and other lyrically minded artists are building loyal followings thanks to their throwback approaches to rap. With so much exciting music coming from so many directions, the Complex Music team has put together a list of rising rappers worth paying attention to. And as you make your way through our selections, it’s important to note: Baby Keem, Don Toliver, Roddy Ricch, and others are also poised to have massive years in 2020, but they don’t appear on this list because they were each named last year among 2019’s Rappers to Watch. These are 25 rappers to watch in 2020.
