Top 10 Rap Songs With the Best Beats

The Top Ten Rap Songs With the Best Beats

1 Shook Ones, Pt. II - Mobb Deep

This is the greatest rap beat of all time. No rap beat ever made comes close to this. This beat has been rapped over and covered and sampled numerous times. It was scan featured on the final rap battle in 8 Mile.

I belive this beat was the best beat ever. I didn't chose Still Dre cause the main tune, the catchy Piano has been sampled from some other source, so yea...

It's real rap. That Still DRE song is fine, but this is more of a rap beat than a catchy tune, which is what I think of Still DRE's beat.

Just like amazing that's it

2 Still D.R.E. - Dr. Dre

Best don't of Chronic 2001 and another sick beat created by Dre.

Macmillan : this is the best song in other songs

The best ever

Its mostly a sample though - 4our2wen0ty

3 In da Club - 50 Cent

This is a hard hip hop beat. How can those Nas fans claim that NY State of Mind has a harder beat than this? The beat is one of the best things about this song. It's very intense, menacing, and intimidating.

Amazing and deep beat that feels like an underground party in the club

Hardest beat every

This song is good

4 Lose Yourself - Eminem

The lyrics in this song are sick with the beat that Eminem did.

I love the beat on this song, it really works well with Eminem's amazing lyrics.

Honestly the best

How is still dre 1

5 Hypnotize - The Notorious B.I.G.

Underrated beat honestly.

Deserve top on list

Should Be Higher.


6 The World is Yours - Nas

A sick beat from a great song from a great rapper.

One of the most relaxed beats in hip hop

7 Many Men (Wish Death) - 50 Cent

More than fire ... Is perfect


8 N.Y. State of Mind - Nas

This is the definition of a hardcore hip hop beat. The beat us catchy and just hooks you on to it as soon as you hear the first verse.

9 They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) - Pete Rock & CL Smooth
10 Big Poppa - The Notorious B.I.G.

I love it when you call me big poppa

It is a amazing beat, the lyrics go good with the beat.

This beat goes hard. I like the lyrics too but this is flames. best beat ever. - CoolMods

15 The Next Episode - Dr. Dre
16 Nuthin' but a "G" Thang - Dr. Dre

This song made g-funk popular and is considered one of the most influential and greatest rap songs of all time. Not to mention its also the best g-funk song ever.

By far the best rap song if all time (in flow, beat, everything! )

17 Black Skinhead - Kanye West

It's lit

18 Dreckst├╝ck - Bushido
19 No Role Modelz - J. Cole

One of my favorite J. Cole songs, but admittedly not my favorite. I believe personally there are better ones. Lit beat though, so I'm voting for it. - MasonOcker

20 Jumpman - Drake & Future
21 Stan - Eminem

Simple, but it fits perfectly with the atmosphere and the story the track creates. It is so detailed, yet so simplistic. And the rain soundeffect in the background is amazing!

My dad pointed out that every so often in the song the last note is just one note lower to give the eerie effect of the song - 4our2wen0ty

22 Power - Kanye West
23 Berlin - Bushido
24 John - Lil Wayne
25 It's Going Down - Celly Cel

Greatest rap beat of all time period. - JCchrom3

I never heard a beat that can beat this. So underrated

26 Cordon Sport Massenmord - Fler & Bushido
27 Boiling Point - Dope D.O.D.
28 Grindin' - Clipse
29 H.A.M. - Jay-Z and Kanye West

Absolutly crazy.

30 Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio
31 Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep

Havoc is the god of rap beats. There are dozens of Mobb Deep songs that could've been put in this list but other rappers should get a chance.

What a joke! The beat of this song is below one of a Lil Wayne song. This is one of the greatest rap beats of all time.

32 Ambitionz Az a Ridah - 2Pac

This is 2Pac's most hardcore gangster beat. One of the greatest Gangster Rap songs ever made.

Nice beat with the piano

THIS IS THE BEST. the best gangsta beat and also the best gangsta song.

33 My Name Is - Eminem

Great beat. Really goes well with the chorus and Eminem's rapping.

34 Fast Lane - Bad Meets Evil

Just really very cool and catchy beat,also Em's and Royce rapping was on another level in this song

35 Remember the Name - Fort Minor
36 Candy Shop - 50 Cent

39 N***as in Paris - Kanye West & Jay-Z
40 Adolf Gartner (Gio Diss) - Spongebozz
41 No Sleep Till Brooklyn - Beastie Boys

43 Battle Royal - Virus Syndicate & Dope D.O.D.
44 Everyday Struggle - The Notorious B.I.G.
45 Who Shot Ya? - The Notorious B.I.G.

The beat is just so complex and hard to explain. It's just so menacing and it sort of hypnotizes you.

46 Nas is Like - Nas

How is this not in the top 10? - venomouskillingmachine

47 I Don't Like - Chief Keef


48 Maad City - Kendrick Lamar
49 You Know How We Do It - Ice Cube

Probably the second greatest g-funk song ever. The woman's voice in the background is so relaxing and this is just the kind of song you can kick back to and enjoy.

50 C.R.E.A.M. - Wu-Tang Clan

The beat is just very nice and relaxing here.
