Witty, humorous, great beat and sung by one of the best rappers there is- what more do you need with a song. - akankshamishra

I absolutely love this song. It's funny, catchy, and memorable. - SwagFlicks

31 Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z

Love this song, it's an Anthem. I don't really know why Miss Me is in here, it's not even the best on the album.

32 The Real Slim Shady - Eminem

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

This is basically the perfect rap song. Funny, sick beat, amazing rap...

33 You Don't Know - Eminem, 50 Cent, Cashis & Lloyd Banks

Most underrated song ever

Yeah, this is a good song. - SwagFlicks

34 When I'm Gone - Eminem

Great emotion and catchy hook

Love this song my favorite eminem song by far

The most depressing and amazing Eminem song

35 Cıktık Yine Yollara - Norm Ender
36 Swimming Pools - Kendrick Lamar

The verses with his songs go so deep and make people really think life is like. Not just that but the beat is dope too.

A song about the negative effects of alcoholism. And a very good one. - SwagFlicks

37 Kill You - Eminem

This IS the best Eminem song. The way he combines words and beats in this song, insane.

This is probably Eminem's second best opener after Bad Guy. - SwagFlicks

It's such an awesome song... Must hear to it frnds..
Vote for the king of hip hop & rap - shady...

38 Hate It or Love It - The Game & 50 Cent

This is simply the best rap song of the millennium

Seriously how is this so l ow? i t this was so damn good even if game may not have written all the verses. And kill you which is from a brilliant album, is higher than this as well as hot in here? I mean game is just too underrated I mean the bitchass muthaers at the grammys have robbed him of a nomination for best rap album I mean really encore got nominated instead of this brilliant piece of work, sure the documentary had name calling, but encore had weird noises such as a personating. Then in 08' they nominated kingdom come which is famous for being a bad album instead of doctor's advocate which isn't greatest of all time but it's miles ahead of kingdom come. I get it he's a real thug but people are brought up into these types of lives. Man that was a long rant. BUT This message about the levels that game is underrated and treated unfairly.

39 Forever - Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem

This should be the best song of the 21st century becasue it's a great hype song, a great beat to listen too, and the verses from everybody is dope instantiously top 5

40 Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

This song is full of energy and very comedic, which places it above songs like Rack City and Hotline Bling. - SwagFlicks
