2 Dear Mama - 2pac

I'm so glad that Tupac beat Eminem in a list for once, as he deserves to. It's not about rhymes, contrary to popular rap belief, but what the song makes you feel, the effect it has on you. Considering that, Dear Mama has to come out on top.

I hate these eminem fans. They don't know the real rap. This needs the number one spot

Crying so good

Not only the rap songs with best lyrics, is the best rap songin my opinion

3 The World is Yours - Nas
4 Uncle Sam Goddamn - Brother Ali
5 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G.

I think this song has to be at number 1. Just listen to the song for yourself. - Mumbizz01

6 Shook Ones, Pt. II - Mobb Deep

"They shook, cause there ain't no such thing as halfway crooks."

Yeah, this song is most powerful lyrically, although the flow and instrumental are also pretty damn good. - SwagFlicks

7 After You Die - Rakim
8 Mathematics - Mos Def


9 Stan - Eminem
10 Ghetto Gospel - 2pac

The Contenders

11 The Cause of Death - Immortal Technique
12 Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique
13 Homecoming - Kanye West

Great song

14 Same Love - Macklemore
15 Mockingbird - Eminem

The last two lines really kill the entire mood for me.
The entire song is emotional, honest and straight from the heart... but he couldn't possibly stop himself from ending this wonderful ballad about his daughter with a crude violence joke and a Beavis and Butt-Head laugh!?
I never got this. - Martin_Canine

16 Changes - 2pac

Lyrically strongest rap song ever. Social and political attitude, real discription of violence by gs, ratsists, drugs, slums,cups and bullies.

17 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj
18 Hopsin Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California. Hopsin was born on July 18, 1985. His first album was called Emurge but he's best known for his album titled Raw.

Oh, baby, you should go and lose yourself
