Dr. Dre stands uncontested on this category of rapper on my opinion.

I always liked MC Eiht. His first three records were really good, at least, and he had more of a story-telling technique than just straight-up rapping about how tough he is or how crazy the streets are, which was more of an old school style that is no lost on most of gangsta rappers these days.

I liked NWA, but always felt that Dre's solo career was rather weak. Yeah, he marketed himself well, but his mainstream stuff lacked the rawness of NWA.

Aside from that, I always thought Kool G Rap (NYC) was far more gritty and aside from NWA and CMW, I never really got into the whole "Compton" thing. I was, and still am, more of a fan of true underground hip hop and thought/think that the Shapeshifters where far more talented than most of what came out of LA.
