There’s no doubt that Mexican rappers are making their mark in the music industry. From underground artists to mainstream stars, these talented musicians are turning heads with their lyrical skills and unique sound.
Here are 15 of the best Mexican Rappers you need to know about. Whether you’re a fan of rap or not, you’ll be impressed by their talent!
1 Snow Tha Product
I am starting things off with this beautiful Mexican rapper, Snow Tha Product, who people used to call Claudia Alexandra Madriz Meza before becoming a rapper.
She was born on the 24th of June 1987 in San Jose, California, USA. You must know that California and Texas border with Mexico.
That is why you’d see many Mexican rappers hailing from California and Texas. Anyways, she is 34 years old.
However, she is an American national; her mom and dad are Mexican. That’s why you can say she is of Mexican descent.
At first, her dad used to live in Michoacán, Mexico, and he came to the U.S. illegally, while her mom came to the U.S. legally.
Music had been in her family for a very long time, as her dad and grandpa used to be singers. When she was nineteen, she finally decided to become a singer and rapper.
This Mexican rapper used to be a die-hard fan of the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, and for that reason, she chose the stage name “Snow White” at first.
After some time, she changed her stage name to “Snow Tha Product.” 2007 was the year when Claudia became a rapper (officially).
“Unorthodox” was her first album, which she gave out in 2011, four years after being in the industry. She gave many hits songs in this album and gained millions of views.
Then it took her another ten years to release her second album “Valemadre,” in 2022. Her other hit songs are “Que Oso,” “How I Do It,” “Waste Of Time,” and others.

2 Kid Cudi
This Mexican rapper is also not from Mexico, but his parents/grandparents were Mexican. So, Cudi is of Mexican descent.
He is 38 years old. His birthday falls on the 30th of January, and his birth year is 1984. He hails from Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi is his birth name. It is a lesser-known fact that this Mexican rapper’s dad fought in World War II in the U.S. Air Force.
Right after finishing his studies in high school, he decided to join the hip-hop industry as a rapper. But in order for him to make a living out of this profession, he had to go to New York.
Cudi had only 500$ when he came to New York City, and see that today, he is worth a whopping 16 million$. You can call that a significant success, right?
But coming to New York City, he wanted to be a U.S. Navy officer, but his fate brought him where he is today. You must be wondering why couldn’t he join the Navy.
When he was in Solon High School, during an argument with the principal, he tried to hit him in the face. This led to his expulsion from the school.
2003 was the year when this Mexican rapper stepped into the hip-hop industry, and six years later, he gave his 1st studio album, named “Man on the Moon: The End of Day,” in 2009.
Some other of his famous albums are “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager,” “Indicud,” “Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon,” and “Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven.”

B-Real is both an American and Mexican rapper who was born in Los Angeles, California, USA, on the 2nd of June 1970.
He has been at it for more than three decades (34 years). You can imagine how great he would be at what he does, and for your information, he is 51 years old.
That means he began doing this when he was just seventeen. 1988 was when he officially became a Mexican rapper. Louis Mario Freese is his real name.
His dad and mom are of Spanish descent. His dad’s a Mexican, and his mom’s a Cuban. Then something tragic happened to him at the age of 17.
At the same age when he became a rapper, he was caught in a crossfire of a gang-related shooting. This shot resulted in his lung getting punctured.
He, along with his pal Sen Dog, created a hip-hop duo, “Cypress Hill,” which became a success. Before releasing his solo albums, he released many albums as a hip-hop duo.
But I am not talking about Cypress Hill, so I’m just going to focus on his solo albums. The first of them was “Smoke N Mirrors,” which came out in 2009.
His second solo studio album was “Tell You Somethin’,” which was released in 2021. His hit songs are “Loco en el coco,” “Lowrider,” “Grandes Ligas,” and others.

4 King Lil G
Now I am presenting to you the next destacado Mexican rapper, King Lil G, who is 34 years old. His birth date and birthplace are the 24th of July 1987 and Mexico City, Mexico, respectively.
Unlike many other Mexican rappers on this list, he is actually from Mexico. Alex Gonzalez is his birth name. Precisely, he is from the South Los Angeles region.
“Hopeless Boy’ was the song that gained him a lot of following and recognition. He gave out this song in 2014, and it became a hit.
Lil G began doing this in 2004, and he is still at it. During that time, he gave out some of the best studio albums under his name.
Those albums are “King Enemy,” “Ak47 Boyz,” “90s Kid,” “Paint The City Blue,” and some others. Many labels approached him by offering contracts to work with them.
But he didn’t want to be bound with one or more labels. He wanted full control over his rapping career. So, he remained independent.
He has such a huge audience on his YouTube channel, with over 1.13 million+ subscribers and more than 614 million total on the channel.

5 Mr. Capone-E
This Mexican rapper is actually not from the North American, South American, or even the European continent, but from the Asian one.
He belongs to the Hazara community of Peshawar, Pakistan, and that is where he was born on the 27th of April, 1976. He is 45 years old.
Throughout his career, he has worked with Snoop Dogg a few times, and he has contributed pretty little to the Mexican hip-hop industry, but, yeah, there’s that.
In 2000, he created the Hi-Power Records, and while working with the same label, he gave out his debut album, “Mr. Capone-E & The Southsiders,” in the same year (2000).
Some other of his hit albums are “Last Man Standing,” “Dedicated 2 The Oldies,” “Always and Forever,” “Strictly For the Street Vol. 1,” and others.

6 Baby Bash
He used to be Baby Beesh, but circumstances took a turn, and now the world knows him as Baby Bash. By the way, he is 46 years old.
Ronald Ray Bryant is his birth date. His birth date is the 18th of October 1975, and he hails from Vallejo, California, USA.
At first, Bash didn’t have much interest in music (rap or any other). I’m not saying that he didn’t like music at all; I just mean, music wasn’t his first priority.
His first priority was basketball, and he wanted to become a successful basketball player, but there was something else written in his fate.
When he was little, he suffered an ankle injury; thus, no basketball! Then his family and close relatives educated him on various types of music.
And, yes, before I forget, indeed, he is not a Mexican, but his mom was. This Mexican rapper made his debut in 1996 and, five years later, gave his 1st album.
That album was “Savage Dreams,” and its release date was the 19th of June 2001. Then his other/second hit album came out the next year in 2002, named “On Tha Cool.”

He was born on the 31st of July 1994 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and, yes, he also isn’t a Mexican, yet he is on this Mexican rappers’ list.
George Ramirez is the name his Mexican-immigrant parents gave him. He went to and passed out from Tri-Cities High School.
Five years before releasing his debut studio album, he gave out “Tatted Like Amigos (his 1st song)” in 2012. The famous rapper Chief Keef helped him a lot in this regard.
Chief Keef had a major part to play in skyrocketing Kap G’s rapping career. Other than Chief Keef, he has also worked with some big names, like Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, and others.
In 2017, his 1st album came out, named “SupaJefe.” Then the next year, in 2018, he released his 2nd album, named “No Kap.”

He was found guilty of the charges, and the judge gave him a 45-year jail time. Right now, he is still in jail. But what makes him unique is that he, while being in jail, is still giving out his music projects.
