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
[Newest]That's right Tupac. Hit up biggie

2Remember the Name - Fort Minor
best there ever was, best there ever will be
YEAH I AM WHITE AND I THINK THIS IS GANGSTER SO IT PROBABLY ISN'T
I THINK THIS SON
[Newest]Good song but it's not a gangsta song, it's a pump up song.

3Gangsta'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

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.
Best Gangsta song while maybe except the croosroads
[Newest]My Mum loves this song

4Cop 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

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
DAYUM, dis tune wrecks any tunee. so str8 gangsta
this song MADE gangsta rap
There once was a time where things were peaceful. People would wake up in the morning to the sound of birds chirping and make there way through their boring, but happy, life. BUT SCREW THAT NOISE! This song represents all that is free and awesome. No more is there time of peace and boringness, only excitement and chaos!

8Who Shot Ya? - Notorious B.I.G

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.
