The bruno mars part is good, the Lil Wayne part is just awfulV3 Comments
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!V7 Comments
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.V1 Comment
This song made Eminem famous! How is this not higher
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!
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
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
The underground just don't stop for hoes
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 hisV1 Comment
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!
What a subliminal diss on wayne and possibly jay
Best rap song ever! Puff Daddy, Biggie & Junior M.A.F.I.A. were GREAT!
RIP Biggie Smalls
A legendary hit in the rap game. Snoop Dogg is one of the most richest figures in Music history
Possibly one of the greatest songs ever made and was a big hit in its era. Snoop Dogg has changed now
Snoop Dogg greatest hit. Forget about Gin and Juice. This had the best chorus line ever!V1 Comment
The most pump up rap song of all time! Jay-Z is a lyrical amazement. Numb is one of the greatest songs of all time and when you mix it with a legendary rap song like Encore, you get where I'm going, it will be a very good achievement in the music industry.
A great song and unbelievably excellent. Good for all Rock and Rap fans. Jay-Z is a good lyricist and Linkin Park are great Rock artist!
This song is perfect for Rock and Rap fans, who want a little bit of Hardcore. Both Jay-Z and Linkin Park are Hardcore artists!
The best remix of all time! Jay-Z the best rapper and Linkin Park the best Rock Band of all time, how can you go wrong?V2 Comments
Best rap song ever bob does what he does best and eminem spice chips in with a great rap...!V1 Comment
THIS was Shakespearian.. MacBETHian! (NOT a coincidence I don't think) Should have been subtitled "is this a Nine I see before me? " About a Drug dealer who's doing wrong and think folks are out to get him (which they probably ARE) but MUCH deeper than that. He sees the ghosts of those he killed and reminisces about how he screwed up his life. Somewhat like "love is gonna Get ya" by BDP but more profound. "Damn if feels good to be a Gangsta" also by them and "Not down with bein' Broke" are Rad too
3 pages of crap and no one posted the ghetto boyz? Stop putting crap artists on this list, rap does not include Chingy, Vanilla Ice or that wanna-be rapper Nelly! Listen to some REAL rappers like LL Cool J (old school LL), Bushwick Bill, Scarface, Spice-1, Too Short, Immortal Technique, 2Pac, Biggie, DJ Quik and Nas.. Those are rap artists, not these fake wanna-be's taking over the genre now that are more pop music than anything. - slamriot
Top 10 song, original Texas rap group
This song is great and should be higher up
Second greatest Shaggy song, after "It wasn't Me". It's got the most catchiest lyrics EVER! Mr. Lovah, Lovah.
