Top 10 Weed Rappers: A weed rapper is a rapper who is synonymous with cannabis. A good portion of the artist’s music is about weed and/or the artist’s image is that of a stoner. We ranked rappers based both on quality and success of their music and on their image as a stoner.
10. Smoke DZA
He got his name from the character “Smokey” in Friday. He’s also one of the founding members of the “Smoker’s Club”. He’s consistently been putting out quality weed rap since 2008.
9. Dizzy Wright
Dizzy might be the newest rapper on this list but he has a ton of promise. He is climbing the ladder in the rap game by putting out new music all the time. His EP, State of Mind, reached #5 on the US Rap Charts.
8. Devin the Dude
Devin is a legend in stoner rap. His career started in 1994 and is still going strong today. He’s one of Rap-A-Lot Records’s first big stars.
Berner is a true boss: not only is he a successful rapper but he’s also very successful as an entrepreneur. His strain of weed, “Cookies”, is one of the most popular in California and Colorado. His debut album, Hempire, reached #54 on the Hot 100.
6. Kid Cudi
Cudi reinvented stoner rap in 2008 with his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day. If Cudi kept up with the success of his first album he would be higher on this list. However, he has fallen off a bit in recent years so he makes #6.
Curren$y made two of the best ever stoner rap albums with Pilot Talk I & II. He was also one of the original members of Lil Wayne’s Young Money Ent. On his own, he has founded Jet Life Recordings and continues to put on up and coming stoner rappers.
4. Method Man and Redman
Ok, so putting two rappers in one slot may seem cheap, but you have to make an exception for these two. On their own, they’re incredibly successful and popular. However, it wasn’t until they got together as duo that they became big on the weed rap scene. The hit song, “How High”, spawned into a movie and a string of albums.
3. B-Real/Cypress Hill
As a member of Cypress Hill first, then as a solo artist, B-Real has always been one of kingpins in the weed rap game. He still puts out music and hosts the SMOKEBOX internet show, smoking with all the big names in rap and cannabis.
2. Wiz Khalifa
Wiz has had 4 albums in the billboard top ten. And all of his songs are about weed. That’s huge. His 2015 single, “See You Again”, went platinum in 10 countries. He even has his own strain, “KK”.
1. Snoop Dogg
9 billboard albums in the top 10. Hosts the popular internet show, GGN. Snoop is everywhere in the rap scene and cannabis scene. He always has been. Snoop is the undeniable #1 on our list.
