Thizzler’s Top 50 Bay Area Artists

Top 50 lists have gone viral this week, and we couldn’t let the opportunity pass without posting our own. The Thizzler staff got together to debate who the Top 50 Bay Area Artists are. With this list, we aimed to highlight the Bay Area artists whose talent, influence, or reach are undeniable. We focused on creators of R&B and Hip-Hop, so you won’t find Santana, Green Day, or The Grateful Dead on this list.

There was a lot of back and forth about who belongs in the Top 50, and we know there are folks who won’t think we got it right. But it’d be no fun if everyone agreed anyway! We want to know your thoughts.

Who is missing from this list? Who’s on here that you believe shouldn’t be?
