Top 10 Rappers Who Live in NJ
Being that NJ basically invented rap with The Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”, it only seems right that so many rappers would live in NJ. Here it is, in no particular order, the top ten rappers who live in NJ…
- Jay-Z- If you have have watched Chris Rock’s “Kill the Messanger” special you would be surprised to find out the Jay-Z has a Garden State of Mind, and lives in Alpine, NJ… p.s. Chris Rock lives in NJ too… Check out the video below.
- P. Diddy (Sean Combs)- Owns a $7 million, 17,000-square-foot hilltop mansion with eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, indoor and outdoor pools, racquetball and basketball courts, a home theater, a wine cellar and a six-car garage.
- Fabolous (John David Jackson)- Although he reps NYC lives in Alpine, NJ… “It’s being able to get away from the whole hustle and bustle of the city”
- Russell Simmons- The co-founder of Def Jam resides in Saddle River close to his little brother Rev Run…source
- Rev Run (Joseph Simmons)- Decided to leave NYC after the death of Jam Master Jay “I had this intuition that told me to move close to my brother” … Check out his saddle river estate in the MTV show Run’s House. source
- DJ Eddie F. (Eddie Farrell) – The DJ of Heavy-D and the Boyz lives in a modest NJ mansion and claims, “I was one of the first out here in Alpine”
- Lil’ Kim – If you have ever heard the song “Aunt Dot,” Lil’ Kim says: “Come on Shanice, I’m takin’ you to my house in Alpine,” referring to her multi million dollar home in Alpine, NJ.
- Wyclef Jean – Born in Haiti, he moved to Brooklyn, and then NJ. He lived in South Orange but now lives in Saddle River.
- Ja Rule (Jeffery Atkins)- Although he reps NY in his song New York he actually lives in Saddle River, NJ.
- Red Man- Born and raised in Newark, Red Man is still an NJ resident. If you never saw his episode of cribs you would be amazed at his extremely, um… humble house.
Out of all the rappers that live in NJ, these seem to be the most notable. If you think that I should change the list, comment on who I should take out and who should be put up.
