The Top Ten

1
Hit 'Em Up - Tupac
This is the greatest song there is it brought a lot of controversy with the notorious big!
the whole East v. West conflict started here. Bad Boys and Death-Row, Pac took it out on Biggie and Diddy. 3 years later both rappers are killed, rap hasn't been the same since.

No one can beat him, believe me, Tupac is the god of rap, the best rapper ever, and still I never found the same rapper like him

I remember when the song came out, I was hooked and a pac fan 4life.

2Remember the Name - Fort Minor
best there ever was, best there ever will be
I THINK THIS SON
YEAH I AM WHITE AND I THINK THIS IS GANGSTER SO IT PROBABLY ISN'T
[Newest]Definitely a great rap song, but not gangster.

3Cop Killer - Ice T
Pretty punky to be honest, but good beat and talks about the crooked cops, and how they should, get shot in the face
Ice-T plays a cop on T.V. , that's pretty lamo, but good song, it has good beats and Ice make cops look like a pimp
You are so cool

4Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio
Coolio is awful singer and actor but at least he made this song-masterpiece. Definitely the best Gangsta song ever in history

Magnolia

Best Gangsta song while maybe except the croosroads
Unique.

A lot of people dislike the fact of rap effecting white suburbia but in my opinion this song is perfect, it tells you that other then the song itself, there is nothing in thar lifestyle for anyone, raw song.. Sends a message across.
Great lyrics, the song is an eye opener, raw heavy rap.. Its good.

I can connect with this song I lived this live since the age of 15 and by the time I was 27 I was indicted for smuggling 75 tons of cocaine with willy and sal

5Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A
Tells an epic story of southern cali. One of the best ever. Too bad the group didn't last longer

9Who Shot Ya? - Notorious B.I.G
this song shows why you don't mess with papi
I still think this song expresses the struggle between the two, (BIG and Pac), and I like this song better than Pac's, it's more original.

The Contenders

This is very Gangster! It hip ass gee yah know we go hard when we perfect dah beat yeah niqquh

143 A.M. - Young Jeezy

Jeezy means business but.38 is better and what I do
Dis is a sick song

15Wanksta - 50 Cent

16How We Do - Game

172 of Amerikaz Most Wanted - 2pac

Belongs in the top ten if not the three
Should definitely be in the top ten. One of my all time favourites.
Great lyrical flow and beat should be number one added to one of the best albums of all time

19Shake That - Eminem

20'Till I Collapse - Eminem

21Westside Connection - Gangsta Nation
This is one of the most badass gangsta songs out there. When the likes of Ice Cube, Nate Dogg (rip), and the rest of WC collaborate, you know it's gonna be good.

22Gangsta Luv - Snoop Dogg

23Shut 'Em Down - LL Cool J

24I Found Me - Z-Ro

25Where the Hood At - DMX
Great beat, great lyrics, what more do you want
Homophobic as anything I've ever heard, goes in hardcore kills ja rule in this track
IF YOU ain't gonna listin to the explicit font listen at all

26Shook Ones Pt. 2 - Mobb Deep
It simply defines east coast rap and life in the hood in general. Over a dark piano-infused beat Prodigy delivers one of the best verses of all time while both members of Mobb Deep call out all those who claim hood but have never even been to the ghetto. Probably the most intimidating song ever, Shook Ones Part II. Not for the faint od heart, or half way crooks.

27Thug Luv - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony & Tupac
Bone were the only rappers 2 do collabs with eazy, pac & biggie this should b in the top 10 homie
BONE BONE BONE... BONE Is the greatest rap group of all time. There are great rappers out there but BONE got a style ain't nobody can F@ck with. This one of the best gangsta songs I've heard.

This song is what you put on to get pumped for sports. "I need some elbow room so I can BOOM SHAKA LACKKA BOOM". "Just like EPMD I don't like abitch named J to the A to the N to od E". Ice cube found soethi nspecial in these guys.

36Beamer, Benz or Bentley - Lloyd Banks

51Wanna Be a Baller - Lil Troy
Everyone wants to be a balker. Throwing up wads of 100's in the club. And calling the shots. Fun song.

Whenever I listen to this track, I feel like a gangsta eventhough I've never been one and never intended to be! It's not too fast or too slow, it's something that makes shiznit flow!

Dope tfcfghbbgghhjjbb. H v

76That's Gangsta - Shyne
Hard rap song from the hood!

77Hell Yea - Dead Prez

78N.W.A - F**k The Police
like thenewrapgame said... this is the lord of gangsta rap songs. I would vote for Shook Ones Part 2 (speaking of which, were is that song on this list!? ) but F*k The Police blows all the songs on this list out the water, and like the guy that voted for Straight Outta Compton said, Cop Killer is a rock song
This is the lord of the rest of the songs, this started gangsta rap, this is the most hardcore ever.

thenewrapgame


79Same Old S*** - MC Ren
This is so hard and cold! This should be in the top ten! He never sold out and strictly stayed underground most of his career. Its so hard you can't even get this on Itunes! What?

80In Da Club - 50 Cent
My All time favorite song of 50 Cent.
