Best Rap Songs of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

Eminem is just so amazing with his compositions! Love to hear a song so appealing with wonderful lyrics from his life and I always get something to learn from him!

Very inspiring, no one can compete, can't wait for his new album!

Eminem is one of the greatest rappers of all time. His delivery is outstanding. He stresses certain syllables making impossible words rhyme. He is a no doubt the greatest lyrical rapper that's ever lived and Lose Yourself is his greatest masterpiece. No doubt the greatest lyrical song ever written!

This Is The Greatest Rap Song Off All Time. None Is Better. It's Even The Highest Sold Rap Song Off All Time

Stan - Eminem Stan - Eminem Cover Art

This song must be in top 10 for sure! This is the best rap song of 21st century. Em deserves the first 3 positions in this list!

Who ever voted 4 dis list sucks, dis list is weak... Kanye really!

This song was inspired by the song called one love on illmatic

Best Eminem Songs.

99 Problems - Jay-Z 99 Problems - Jay-Z Cover Art

It just sound amazing. And Stronger, Through the Wire, and Jesus Walks are all better than Gold Digger.

I got 99 Problems why isn't this number 1?

Stronger - Kanye West Stronger - Kanye West Cover Art

From top 10 rap songs of 21st century 6 songs are from kanye west and every one of them is amazing but this song... I could listen to it whole day and than again and again...

This song is motivation

Runaway - Kanye West Runaway - Kanye West Cover Art

The only reason that this masterpiece is not in the top 10, or top 20 at least, is how underrated it is.

This song is nothing short of iconic. Should be top 5

Best song of all time hands down not even close

Gold Digger - Kanye West Gold Digger - Kanye West Cover Art

Yeah, this is easily one of the best rap songs of the 21st century.

Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique Cover Art

If more people really searched for the truth in hip hop, this song would be in the top 3.

This song is unbelievable. More than 6 minutes of rapping in this song. Unbelievable story telling in this song.

This is one of the greatest song in rap history.

Just number 1 man.. Let's stop fooling around!

Jesus Walks - Kanye West Jesus Walks - Kanye West Cover Art

Love the song... Though some people are criticizing it... Duh

Ok so there's 8 Eminem and kanye west songs in the top ten


Rap God - Eminem Rap God - Eminem Cover Art

Just look at the 6000 words he spited in 6 minute

Wow, wow, wow unbelievable man, love Eminem should be no. 2or3. Eminem forever!

The superfast part it simply amazing

When I heard it first I was like... Eminem is the best rapper... Really a Rap God... Why be a king when you can be the god... Hats off to you

Diamonds from Sierra Leone - Kanye West Diamonds from Sierra Leone - Kanye West Cover Art

WOAH I guessed lose yourself would be number 1 but this is THIRD?! FINALLY THE WORLD UNDERSTANDS HOW GREAT THIS SONG IS! Better than Eminems stuff, the rap in sick, the beat is incredible, the lyrics are good but it's not his best song. One of them. Surprised Ridin' by chamillionaire isn't here, but this list has showed me that kanye isn't underrated at all! Jesus walks is also a fantastic song with a great meaning, but through the wire 10#? Not quite...

It good and I love it and I would rate it 10/10 and its cool and how do I make this more than poor :s anyway I'm just gunna write until its like the best possibl. E and I like the way its nice to slaves. There we go finnaly the blue bar has popped up

The Contenders

In Da Club - 50 Cent In Da Club - 50 Cent Cover Art

Best song of 50 cent

In the Club is a good song. The beat is hard, and it fits perfectly with 50's lyrics and flow.

The only song that I have never gotten tiered of.

Best song ever

Through the Wire - Kanye West Through the Wire - Kanye West Cover Art
Beautiful - Eminem Beautiful - Eminem Cover Art

Just listen to it, and your respect for him (musical talent and otherwise) will skyrocket. Trust me.

Not only the best rap song of the 21st century, the best song of all time.

Shouldn't be this high, but it's in the top ten Eminem songs for me

Best song of all time

Money Trees - Kendrick Lamar Money Trees - Kendrick Lamar Cover Art

One of the best rap song in this century and jay's verse is so underrated

This is song is a hidden gem, very happy it got recognition on this list

My favorite K.Dot song

Love this song!

Literally the worst song in College Dropout, possibly worst Kanye West song

Slow Jamz - Kanye West, Twista & Jamie Foxx Slow Jamz - Kanye West, Twista & Jamie Foxx Cover Art
Mirror - Lil Wayne Mirror - Lil Wayne Cover Art
Hey Ya! - Outkast Hey Ya! - Outkast Cover Art

This is a great song, but it's the exact opposite of gangsta rap

A Milli - Lil Wayne A Milli - Lil Wayne Cover Art

This is no where near the best song of the 21st century

This sucks

Best bass song ever

Hero - Nas Hero - Nas Cover Art

Best song ever

Hot in Herre - Nelly Hot in Herre - Nelly Cover Art
Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z Cover Art

When I'm Gone - Eminem When I'm Gone - Eminem Cover Art

Great emotion and catchy hook

Love this song my favorite eminem song by far

The most depressing and amazing Eminem song

Hilarious, witty lyrics, perfectly sung. I'm astonished by the tricks he uses while singing it! The background sound suits it perfectly and the voice is SIMPLY AWESOME
