The Top Ten

Hit 'Em Up - 2Pac
2pac is the rapper ever! Nobody will be like him. He will be in our hearts forever. He died stupidly. He is a god of rap!

2Real Muthaf****** G's - Eazy-E
This song is TRULY the pinnacle of gangster rap. EAZY personifies G rap, that's what makes him the godfather of gangster rap. His lyrics and flow is untouchable in this song, even tupac and biggie rarely peak at this level of flow, lyrics and rhyme.
Don't know why this song isn't here, it is equal to if not greater than hit em up in terms of gangsta rap!
