Yeah, that's so right all you guys who haven't heard of late Tupac

This list is just full of Eminem ass kickers, he's a good rapper, not the best, at, all

The Newcomers

? Juicy - The Notorious B.I.G. Juicy - The Notorious B.I.G.

Juicy, is perhaps the only biggie song that appeals to the masses (mainstream listeners). The chorus is wonderful and I think that this is his greatest legacy.

It's stupid how this isn't even in the top ten. There isn't one song in the top ten that should really be there this should be number one.

? Not Afraid - Eminem Not Afraid - Eminem

Another incredible song by Eminem. This song delivers a beautifully crafted image of Eminem's life. The chorus is great, and in Eminem's last verse he talks about getting clean. This song often will leave you in awe of how deep the message in the lyrics is, and it is truly an incredible song.

Yup!

The Contenders

11 Young Forever - Jay-Z (feat. Mr. Hudson) Young Forever - Jay-Z (feat. Mr. Hudson)

The chorus of this time has been redone a few times, but no specific version has been extremely popular. Jay-Z took the chorus of this song, sung by Mr. Hudson, and added fantastic rap verses. This version of the song will be remembered forever, because of the memorable chorus, and the great addition of rap verses to adapt to the time.

Best chorus ever! I know this is about rapping, but the chorus is just so good! The rappin' is ok, but I just like the chorus.
"FOREVER YOUNG I WANNA BE FOREVER YOUNG. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE FOREVER, FOREVER YOUNG? " GO JAY-Z AND MR HUDSON!

12 Remember the Name - Fort Minor Remember the Name - Fort Minor

It is my favourite song of all time and I have its many live action and animated videos.

13 Run This Town - Jay-Z (feat. Rihanna) Run This Town - Jay-Z (feat. Rihanna)

"Run This Town" features a fantastic chorus sung by Rihanna, and Jay-Z delivers great rap verses. This song is another great Jay-Z hit, and his album "The Blueprint 3, " which features this song and young forever, is one of the top rap albums of all time.

This is a great song. I haven't liked Jay Z for the longest time and Kanye was mehh around the time, but they both BROUGHT IT here. Rihannas hook complemented the verses nicely. I think Kanyes verse in particular is the reason most people remember this song.

14 Live Your Life - T.I. (feat. Rihanna) Live Your Life - T.I. (feat. Rihanna)

Although he has been in jail for a good portion of his career, he has produced when out of jail. This song features the famous internet sing "Numa Numa, " and tells of T.I. 's life story.

15 Sabotage - Beastie Boys Sabotage - Beastie Boys

Another hilarious song by the Beastie Boys. It is on the video game Rock Band and is a very amusing song to hear sung.

This song kicks your ass, my ass, and everyone's ass. - InsertNameHere

16 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON IS A BROTHA THATLL SMOTHER YOUR MOTHER

17 Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice

A memorable song that features humorous similes all throughout the song. This song is so popular that it was sung by the music group Glee.

18 Fight for Your Right - Beastie Boys Fight for Your Right - Beastie Boys

The Beastie Boys are a very funny rap band that delivers both funny lyrics and funny music videos. This song is a party anthem and has one of the best music videos of all time.

19 Bust a Move - Young MC Bust a Move - Young MC

A song that can't help to make you groove to the music. This is a hilarious song that was and still is played constantly.

20 Low - Flo Rida Low - Flo Rida

Flo Rida's best song that topped the charts for many weeks. It is one of the most digitally downloaded songs of all time.
