100 Hip Hop Artists From Michigan You Should Be Following on Instagram

michigan

Michigan is a state fraught with music history. From Berry Gordy and the sounds of Motown to Eminem, one of the most recognized hip hop artists on the planet, Michigan has it all. Detroit, in particular, continues to be a acknowledged for most of the talent coming out of the Great Lakes State. Most people, however, don’t know or recognize that Flint was actually a hotbed of great talent as well back in the day. Artists such as Top Authority, Dayton Family, Bone Skanless and Jake the Flake are just a few of the big names to come out of Flint. And let us not forget those artists such as J Dilla, Blade Icewood, M.C. Breed, Proof, and Bugz who are no longer with us but whose impact on rap music will always be remembered. I wanted to put together a master list of the top hip hop talent coming out of Michigan that you should be following on Instagram. These are artists, producers, and designers that continue to pave the way for the Michigan rap scene.

By no means is this list complete, there are hundreds of great artists, producers and designers out there that I have inadvertently missed. If your favorite artist is missing, please leave their name in the comments, and I will add them to the list. A few notable names left off the list are Street Lord Juan who is incarcerated until 2025 and James Smith who ran Reel Life Production with his brother Esham in the ’90s. Neither of these artists has verified Instagram accounts.
