Top Ten Hip Hop Songs with Colors in the Title

The Top Ten

1 Rotlichtmassaker - Kollegah & SpongeBozz

('Red Light Massacre")

Before they became enemies (actually, before the latter became SpongeBozz, he is credited as Sun Diego), they released quite a few songs together, until the label refused to pay SpongeBozz for his contributions and Kollegah didn't support SpongeBozz against his label boss (understandable, who wants to risk losing their contract? ). They were so awesome together, the two technically best rappers of Germany, the masterful verbal acrobat and the best rhymer of all time combined - now that they are both famous on chart topping scale, they could do amazing work together over even greater musical production (not to say this one is in any way bad). - Martin_Canine

2 Black Skinhead - Kanye West
3 Yellow Bar Mitzvah - SpongeBozz

I know it heavily borrows from "Purple Lamborghini"... but actually I think it is superior. Mostly because Rick Ross is an extremely basic and underwhelming rapper (delayed delivery, slow flow, weak or non-existent rhymes) and SpongeBozz is always on-point, uses creative and unexpected multisyllabic rhymes and has hard hitting punchlines. During the verses, Digital Drama's beat is a lot harder and more ominous than Skrillex's. Just the drop is more awesome from Skrillex. Skrillex uses common dubstep synths, but Drama's drop has this weird metallic squeaking noise - but again, SpongeBozz's energetic "heh! " is a lot more gripping than Rick Ross's wannabe-cool "huh? ".
Overall, "Yellow Bar Mitzvah" is a lot more enjoyable to me, even though I know it borrowed its entirely structure (I won't say "steal", as SpongeBozz makes Suicide Squad references in the lyrics), but it expands on it and brings it to a new level. - Martin_Canine

4 Grünes Haus - Marsimoto
5 Black Friday - Bushido
6 Purple Lamborghini - Skrillex & Rick Ross

Despite what I said on "Yellow Bar Mitzvah", this song is a good one. In fact, I'd call it one of my favorite songs of 2016, quite fitting since I am one of the few people whose expectations of the movie "Suicide Squad" were not disappointed but surpassed. You should know I am pretty tired of both the slow pacing MCU flicks (I like GOTG though, it's a lot more action and fun packed) and the pseudo-dark-and-philosophical Dark Knight ripoffs, so this cheeky, stylish and a bit nostalgic (wouldn't you guess it was made around the turn of the century) flick was just what I needed.
Now, this song has the same touch of "awesome" the film has. Just with the flaw of a weak rapper and the synths in the verses (naa na naa nee noo) shouldn't have been mixed into the background this much. - Martin_Canine
