104Notorious Thugs - Bone Thugs N Harmony

WHAT THE?! SOULJA BOY CRANK DAT? That ain't even a song, let alone hip hop, let alone a top ten?! This is a true quality song where biggie shows his versatility, he matches the bone thugs flow. It was awesome when it dropped, it changed hip hop and labelled biggie once again as the best ever! But. You kiddies weren't around back then, you just were there to see the hype around soulja boy crank dat!

Tune! Biggie kills it in this song wot a legend

Classic rap song of the 90's. Its smotth and has a killer beat. I never get tired of listening to it. Bone Thugs and Harmony is Awesome.

What a track this should be in the top tens.

105Triumph - Wu-Tang Clan

This rap was some of the most original pieces. Each rapper was good enough to go solo, but they sounded so good together. Soulja Boy? Really?

This is the only joint that deserves to be on this list. You all need to stop listening to the radio and all that "ringtone rap". There is real music out there...throw your radio out the window and turn off mtv please...

Hands down, the true essence of hip hop, and REAL mcing, not garbage that gets played on the radio. I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND NOT LIKE IT.

All these rappers out here today need to listen to Triumph, well Wu Tang period. They are true lyricist!

106Hate It or Love It - The Game

Pure Gangster! Hip hop at its best, made by the best (The game and fifty)
This song introduced me to hip hop and even after so many years, it is still my favorite song! I could listen to it on repeat 24 7

"Hate it or love it the underdog's on top And I'm gonna shine homie until my heart stop Go head' envy me I'm raps MVP And I ain't going nowhere so you can get to know me"!

The reason I started listening to rap.

This has got to be in the top 10! Even Soulja Boy made it with the same verse over and over in crank Dat

First rap I heard should be top twenty if not top ten

109Hip Hop Is Dead - Nas

Well, I apologize, but look at the top ten (minus a few... Soulja boy, ouch... Nas isn't my favorite rapper, but he REALLY has a VERY TRUE point. No more Hip Hop... Just commercial illiteracy... It's a shame when people can't except a rap song for the lyrical content (which, in my opinion, makes it "Hip Hop") and just want to buy into the current fad, which is an example of what we have today. There are a select FEW artists still out there, or new to the game, that can put it down. But, for the most part, it is just "I have more money than you, buy my record... ". So, Nas truely makes the best statement I've heard, basically since the change of the millenium, "HIP HOP IS DEAD. ".

Nas has the best flow of all time and is so lyrical, perhaps he is the best rapper of all time! Hip Hop Is Dead is a bad album but this is the only good song and ended becoming one of his best songs! The chorus is amazing and catchy along with some good vocal work from Will I Am. The most brilliant rap performance by Nas that's for sure!

Best flow and amazing lyrics. The bigger the cap the bigger the peeling! The most overshadowed Nas song of all time!

This song is so true. Hip hop is dead and Nas is one of the survivors!

1102 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted - 2pac & Snoop Dogg

I think it's one of the best rap song I've ever heard. It has everything a good hip-hop song should have, in my opinion. Vote it if you simply love Tupac as much as I do. Rest In Peace. - Wondadies

He was, he is, he will remain the best for all time... Love you pac

The flow on this song is on Expert level

111One Shot - B.A.P

They may not be americans but you gotta admit their style and rap is amazing, and if you check out their lyrics you'll see how good their rap is

112I Get Around - 2Pac

The underground just don't stop for hoes

113Positive Balance - Immortal Technique feat. Big Zoo

A great beat and lyrical rapping from Big Zoo and Immortal Technique! The great hip hop underground dope stuff!

Greatest hip hop song of all time! It is so underrated, Big Zoo is a pretty good rapper along with Immortal Technique

The greatest hip hop song I have ever heard in my life! Big Zoo is so underrated and the chorus is catchy and is mad!

114Seduction - Eminem

What a subliminal diss on wayne and possibly jay

115Sky's the Limit - Lil Wayne

No he wasnt self made he wouldn't be there if birdman never showed up. And he sucks

Oh a very talented rapper and a very great song mixed together. I think this song should be around #1 or #2 because its just goes hard! You guys just need to notice that Lil Wayne has taken over the rap game so everyone should vote this song up to #1! Also Lil Wayne is a self made millionaire, where as Eminem needed help from Dr. Dre.

At least top 10 just listen to the lyrics even though the beat isn't his

116Mo' Money, Mo' Problems - The Notorious B.I.G.

Literally an iconic song. Better than Juicy in my opinion and released posthumously, though Juicy does for sure deserve to be up there.

Best rap song ever! Puff Daddy, Biggie & Junior M.A.F.I.A. were GREAT!
RIP Biggie Smalls
