Love this song, it's an Anthem. I don't really know why Miss Me is in here, it's not even the best on the album.

29Without Me - Eminem

Witty, humorous, great beat and sung by one of the best rappers there is- what more do you need with a song. - akankshamishra

Hilarious, witty lyrics, perfectly sung. I'm astonished by the tricks he uses while singing it! The background sound suits it perfectly and the voice is SIMPLY AWESOME

34Kill You - Eminem

This IS the best Eminem song. The way he combines words and beats in this song, insane.

This is probably Eminem's second best opener after Bad Guy. - SwagFlicks

It's such an awesome song... Must hear to it frnds..
Vote for the king of hip hop & rap - shady...

35Swimming Pools - Kendrick Lamar

The verses with his songs go so deep and make people really think life is like. Not just that but the beat is dope too.

A song about the negative effects of alcoholism. And a very good one. - SwagFlicks

36Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

This song is full of energy and very comedic, which places it above songs like Rack City and Hotline Bling. - SwagFlicks

37Born Sinner - J. Cole
38Hate It or Love It - The Game & 50 Cent
39Beautiful Pain

This must be at least in top 20
