The lyrics in this song are so powerful. Gives me the shivers every time I hear it

What! This is an awesome sequel to stan all you haters this should be on top 10

A close third on my list. The fourth verse is a must listen. - SwagFlicks

The last verse was so good definitely should be higher

42 Runaway - Kanye West

Listen to the full 8 minute and 29 second version of Runaway, it will blow you away. You will be wondering why it's not in the top 20. Runaway is pure, raw material which should be respected on a high level. My all-time favourite rap song from anyone. - yaygiants16

The Piano Simply Gives You Goosebumps With Soothing Lyrics.

One of the most underrated rap songs of all time.

One of the longest hip hop songs, and it never loses the listener's interest.

43 F*** Tha Police - N.W.A. F*** Tha Police - N.W.A.

This is the finest rap to ever be produced. You have to give the love to NWA!

That's the gangsta rap's hymn, it should be on the first place

Lose Yourself and this are perfect rap songs! - sryanbruen

Greatest song by nwa at least top 20

44 One Love - Nas One Love - Nas
45 Stronger - Kanye West Stronger - Kanye West

This song has a great beat, the lyric is amazing.
Makes you feel good and kind of like a boss, that kind of song you can hear 10 years later and still feel excited while hear it..

Kanye West most definitive and complete song! The true pump up and motivational rap song!

The most amazing and mind blowing rap song ever produced period! Kanye West went old school on this one!

The only kanye west song I actually like - 12cc

46 Hypnotize - Notorious B.I.G. Hypnotize - Notorious B.I.G.

His so amazing, in my opinion he is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

This should be higher up the list! So smooth and such an awesome flow, catchy chorus and one of the best beats in any rap song. A hip hop classic!

In my top 5, no clue how it's so low. Biggie still has the best flow in the game almost 20 years after his death. Not as good as loose yourself, changes, juicy, and Stan, but still an amazing song that should be at least in the top 10

How the hell is this song so low?!?!?! Easily in the top 20

47 Sing for the Moment - Eminem Sing for the Moment - Eminem

Listen to these lyrics, great story and a lot of meaning

One of the best in my opinion. This should be higher up on the list. Tons of meaning and other stuff like that you all get the point though

I think the only reason this isn't higher is because em has a lot of other songs up high on this list. This song in my opinion should be higher but people get mad because Em is at the top of just about every rap subject on this website.

Like how is this so low on the list

48 Walk This Way - Run-DMC Walk This Way - Run-DMC

This is a cover version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way". This song is awesome, they even had steven tyler to work with them

Great song should be higher on this list

49 Put It On - Big L Put It On - Big L

Very underrated song. And so is Big L. You've gotta be kidding me if this goes right here. - nolvorite

This song has the crazy nice lyrics. Its got great flow and real depth too. Big L really puts a lot into this song, and he doesn't go light either. It all just works out to make a great song.

Well this is a little low... Big L is one of the best rappers of all time. This song is probably one of my favourites! I don't know why people love all the new stuff when this is better.

RIP Big L

It's a good song

50 What You Know - T.I. What You Know - T.I.

It's a crime soujia boy is above this.. Anyways like the Guinness men say it's Brilliant.

The greatest music and rap of all time.

T.I. is the greatest of all time. What you Konow was the best rap song of 2006. He keeps it real in his lyrics, that's why he has lots of street credit. This song is the greatest rap and diss song of all time! Period. King of the south!

Way better than Vanilla Ice.T.I. is the king. Can beat anyone in a rap battle. Nobody can be like T.I. because their is only one king, and that is him. King of the South!

51 Worldwide Choppers - Tech N9ne Worldwide Choppers - Tech N9ne

Unbelievable! Tech N9ne kills it. He's the best rapper in the entire universe. SO VOTE FOR HM AND HIS SONGS please!

Besides Midwest Choppers, Einstein, So Dope, He's a mental giant, Am I a psycho, Red nose, The beast etc. deserve to be in this list for sure!

... Tech N9NE is unfrigginbelieveable. He is definitely on the level of or even better than Eminem, jay z, dr dre, maybe even 2pac, and all of the other legends, yet he does NOT get enough respect for it. This probable Tech's fastest song, but not his best. The features are great, but tech is the one who really shines through. He has an enormous empire of rappers who he hand-picks to make this song, and it works.

Tech n9ne probably has the most talent of all MCs, and this songs shows it all. - Antwon

Insane Verse by Tech N9ne, Twista and Yelawolf and JBL Hood

52 Many Men (Wish Death) - 50 Cent Many Men (Wish Death) - 50 Cent

50 Cent is so deep in this song! and he really shows the true meaning of New Age Hip-Hop, and he is also one of the faces of today's Hip-Hop, even though he is not in his prime anymore he can still rap pretty good! He is better than Lil Wayne by a mile. The lyrical meaning of this song is very good! An excellent achievement in the life of 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson the King of Jamaica, New York.

50 Cent is one of the most popular figures in the music industry of all time! This is his best song and it is so deep just listen to the lyrics, about 50 cent's poor past life of crime and his rise to fame! This song smashes Lil Wayne.

I HAVE BEING PRAYING TO LIKE 50 CENT ALL THROUGH MY LIFE,
BECAUSE OF THE CONCEPT HE USE IN RAPPING THAT MAKE HIM DIFFER FROM OTHER MUSICIANS.

Brush this song is so deep and awesome fiddy really shows his talent hear

53 Thugz Mansion - Tupac Thugz Mansion - Tupac

Tupac has made a masterpiece! Thugz Mansion is one of the hallmarks in Tupac's history, and thank God it is in the top 30!

Tupac is the greatest rapper, with the best messages, his music isn't only rhythmical but it's also poetic and a story.

How is this not #1 on the top ten... Greatest song ever (acustic version is the best)

One of the best song I have ever heard.

54 I Ain't Mad At Cha - Tupac I Ain't Mad At Cha - Tupac

2pac at his finest. He was and is the greatest. This track is the best hip hop ever. 2pac was a poet and never afraid to tell us what he thought.

How can this not be top 3 at least? The lyrics, beat and all are on point

Should definitely by top 10 in my opinion

If there is a song that deserves top 10 spot. It is this song!
It was the very beginning of gangsta rap. This song should be in the top 10 no doubt

56 Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst - Kendrick Lamar Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst - Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick portrays a message in every song and this one just tops it everything about this song is just pure greatness Kendrick is one of the best rappers of all time if not the best

59 They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) - Pete Rock and CL smooth They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) - Pete Rock and CL smooth

There was really nothing like it! It was a lyrical masterpiece and had a nice flow, along with Pete Rock!

Fantastic Hip Hop, there is just nothing to compare it with accept old rap!

Mad single! Great flow, lyrics and an old school classic!

Needs to be a LOT higher than 50 on this list. Come on, hip-hop fans... You're better than this
