One of the overall best hip hop artists in Denver, AP has represented the city in the best way possible for a handful of years. It’s hard to mention Denver hip hop without AP’s name coming up and that’s for good reason. His music is by far some of the highest quality to be found in the city and his steady presence on the scene is undeniable. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, AP has since made the Mile High City his home and has been one of the most prominent rappers in the city thanks to his excellent music and strong connections with Trev Rich.
Another member of the LEGION crew, Doobie has proven his immense skill as an MC on nearly every track he’s been on. With impecibly precise flows and a voice that just sounds dope, the Colorado artist is using his skill to make a name forhimself on the quickly forming hip hop scene in the Box State. We expect big things from Doobie as he continues to put in work and show everyone why he could be one of the state’s premier hip hop artists.

Their music is excellent as well and they create some of the most ear catching sounds in the city, full of memorable harmonies and spacious production.
One of the few Denver hip hop artists to gain attention outside of the city, Supreme Ace has helped put the Queen City of the Plains on the map with his smooth, polished music. Ace never drops a track that sounds unfinished and he is clearly one of the most complete artists in the entire state, linking up with nationally known musicians such as OG Maco, 808 Mafia, NARD & B, Mir Fontane, Cash Money AP and others. With Colorado’s scene growing at a relentless pace, Supreme Ace is bound to be one of the state’s leading artists for years to come.
