7 Not Afraid - Eminem

Another incredible song by Eminem. This song delivers a beautifully crafted image of Eminem's life. The chorus is great, and in Eminem's last verse he talks about getting clean. This song often will leave you in awe of how deep the message in the lyrics is, and it is truly an incredible song.

13 Young Forever - Jay-Z

The chorus of this time has been redone a few times, but no specific version has been extremely popular. Jay-Z took the chorus of this song, sung by Mr. Hudson, and added fantastic rap verses. This version of the song will be remembered forever, because of the memorable chorus, and the great addition of rap verses to adapt to the time.

Best chorus ever! I know this is about rapping, but the chorus is just so good! The rappin' is ok, but I just like the chorus.

14 Run This Town - JAY Z, Rihanna & Kanye West

"Run This Town" features a fantastic chorus sung by Rihanna, and Jay-Z delivers great rap verses. This song is another great Jay-Z hit, and his album "The Blueprint 3, " which features this song and young forever, is one of the top rap albums of all time.

This is a great song. I haven't liked Jay Z for the longest time and Kanye was mehh around the time, but they both BROUGHT IT here. Rihannas hook complemented the verses nicely. I think Kanyes verse in particular is the reason most people remember this song.

15 Juicy - The Notorious B.I.G.

Juicy, is perhaps the only biggie song that appeals to the masses (mainstream listeners). The chorus is wonderful and I think that this is his greatest legacy.

It's stupid how this isn't even in the top ten. There isn't one song in the top ten that should really be there this should be number one.

16 Live Your Life - T.I.

Although he has been in jail for a good portion of his career, he has produced when out of jail. This song features the famous internet sing "Numa Numa, " and tells of T.I. 's life story.
