    Eminem is probably the best of all time followed by Easy E (his solo stuff was better than Dre's or Ice Cube's) and Shock G. Honorable mention to MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice (their hits were few, but they had some really good ones).

    Say no all you want. All main stream gangsta rap traces its lineage back to NWA. Schoolly D and Ice T were first. NWA made it palatable.

    I put Dr. Dre and Puff Daddy at about the same level. I can’t believe he got so many votes.

    They aren't gangsta rap but they aren't pussies.
    Dre produced gangsta rap and was instrumental in it.
    Puffy stabbed someone and if the recent evidence is true(which it looks like it could be) Puffy might've been trying to kill Pac and Suge.
    That would be in the gangsta realm

    Eminem's not gangsta rap, but neither are Puffy, Public Enemy and anybody from Wu-Tang.

    Gangsta rap is basically a West Coast thing and to a lesser extent Southern/Midwestern. On the East Coast you had hardcore hip hop, in the Midwest you had horrorcore, etc. DMX is hardcore hip hop/horrorcore.

    Cypress Hill isn't really gangsta either. But whatever, right? :)
