It’s All in the Fam

The world of hip hop has a few family partnerships. Many legendary artists are actually related. The RZA, the GZA, and ODB are related. So Are Dr. Dre and Warren G. We compiled a list of 30 rappers that are related.

 

Snoop Dog And Daz Dillinger

Daz Dillinger and Snoop Dog are cousins. They worked together a lot when Daz was working for Death Row records as a rapper and producer. The most active member of Snoop Dog’s old rap crew, the Dog Pound, Daz and Snoop grew up in Long Beach California, and have been in the rap game for decades.

 

MC Lyte and Milk Dee/Giz of Audio Two

These kings and queen of old school rap are actually all siblings. Milk Dee and Giz make up the duo Audio Two, known for their hit “Top Billin” from their album “What More Can I Say.” MC Lyte is a legendary rapper that paved the way for basically every female rapper ever, and deserves all the props.

 

Chris Rivers And Big Pun

New York City MC Chris Rivers has found himself following in the footsteps of his father Big Pun. Once named Baby Pun, it’s understandable that he wanted to grow up and make it on his own.

 

Rev Run And Russel Simmons

Rev Run and Russell Simmons are brothers. Even tho Russell isn’t technically a rapper, the rap mogul, and founder of the legendary Def Jam Records deserves to be in any conversation about rap and hip hop.

 

Berry Gordy And Redfoo

Berry Gordy may not be a rapper, but he’s a legendary songwriter from the days of Motown. His son, Redfoo, half of the duo LMFAO, is more relevant in the world of hip hop, and his father being one of the best song writers of a generation helped him stay on the track to stardom.

 

Master P, Silkk The Shocker And C-Murder

The No Limit records front man, Master P, Silkk the Shocker, and the number one No Limit soldier of all time, C-Murder, are brothers. Originally hailing from public housing in New Orleans, these two took the Hip Hop world by storm in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. They even came out with an album called, “Brotherz.”

 

Snoop Dog And Ray J & Brandy

Apparently Snoop has a big old family. He’s also cousins with the 90’s R&B brother and sister stars Ray J and Brandy. Having Snoop as a cousin would be fun. That’s undeniable. Hopefully he helped his little cousins grasp the game, because entertaining apparently runs in the family.

 

Wyclef Jean And Pras Of The Fugees

Both Wyclef and Pras were members of one of the best rap trios ever – The Fugees. The two are cousins. Though the group broke up prematurely, with lots of music left on the table, they both deserve a spot in the annuls of rap history.

 

Redman And Method Man

Method Man and Redman are cousins. From rapping together with Method Man’s undeniable smoothness and style, and Redman’s energetic punchlines, to their movie, “How High,” they made together, this dynamic duo knows that the bond of family can cut through the nonsense and allow them to put in work.

 

E-40 And Droop E

The legendary, tongue twisting, slang pioneering rapper E-40 has a son named Droop E. Droop best known for his song “I’m Loaded,” reps the Bay area as hard as 40 himself, and has potential to have insane amounts of influence on the rap game, following directly in his father’s footsteps.

 

The RZA, The GZA, And Ol’ Dirty Bastard

More glorious Wu-Tang Clan action for you all as the RZA, the GZA, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard (RIP) are cousins. The backbone of the Wu-Tang Clan, the RZA and the GZA are musical geniuses. ODB was unfortunately taken from us too soon, but his legacy will live forever through his

 

Pete Rock And Heavy D

Juicy J and Project Pat

Juicy J and Project Pat are brothers. Both members of legendary Memphis rap group, 3-6 Mafia, Juicy J was able to break out into the mainstream doing songs with Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. But Project Pat and Juicy J have been doing their rap thing since before ’96.

 

Ice Cube and Del The Funky Homosapien

Ice cube and Del the Funky Homosapien are cousins. These two have opposite styles. Where cube busted on the scene talking about the gangsterisms of Compton life, Del got his big break as the resident rapper of the animated pop group, “The Goriilaz.”

 

Dr. Dre And Warren G

Dr. Dre and Warren G are step brothers. The two pioneers of G-funk gangster rap have both had success. Warren broke came on the scene hard with his anthem, “Regulators” alongside the late Nate Dogg.
