Best Rap Songs

Listen to the full 8 minute and 29 second version of Runaway, it will blow you away. You will be wondering why it's not in the top 20. Runaway is pure, raw material which should be respected on a high level. My all-time favourite rap song from anyone. - yaygiants16
The Piano Simply Gives You Goosebumps With Soothing Lyrics.
One of the longest hip hop songs, and it never loses the listener's interest.
One of the most underrated rap songs of all time.V 3 Comments
Listen to these lyrics, great story and a lot of meaning
One of the best in my opinion. This should be higher up on the list. Tons of meaning and other stuff like that you all get the point though
I think the only reason this isn't higher is because em has a lot of other songs up high on this list. This song in my opinion should be higher but people get mad because Em is at the top of just about every rap subject on this website.
Can't belive how low down this song is. It deservese to be in the top 10, number 1 in my opinion. This is the song that got me into rap in the first place. The beat and rhythm are mint! Great song by the one and only, the ultimate rapper EMINEM.V 9 Comments
This song has a great beat, the lyric is amazing.
Makes you feel good and kind of like a boss, that kind of song you can hear 10 years later and still feel excited while hear it..
Kanye West most definitive and complete song! The true pump up and motivational rap song!
The most amazing and mind blowing rap song ever produced period! Kanye West went old school on this one!
The only kanye west song I actually like - 12ccV 8 Comments
This is a cover version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way". This song is awesome, they even had steven tyler to work with them
Great song should be higher on this list
Very underrated song. And so is Big L. You've gotta be kidding me if this goes right here. - nolvorite
This song has the crazy nice lyrics. Its got great flow and real depth too. Big L really puts a lot into this song, and he doesn't go light either. It all just works out to make a great song.
Well this is a little low... Big L is one of the best rappers of all time. This song is probably one of my favourites! I don't know why people love all the new stuff when this is better.
RIP Big L
It's a good songV 10 Comments
This is the finest rap to ever be produced. You have to give the love to NWA!
That's the gangsta rap's hymn, it should be on the first place
Lose Yourself and this are perfect rap songs! - sryanbruen

It's a crime soujia boy is above this.. Anyways like the Guinness men say it's Brilliant.
The greatest music and rap of all time.
T.I. is the greatest of all time. What you Konow was the best rap song of 2006. He keeps it real in his lyrics, that's why he has lots of street credit. This song is the greatest rap and diss song of all time! Period. King of the south!
I just love this song so muchV 10 Comments
Ridiculous One-liners, preposterous metaphors, relentless rhythm speed, all interwined into a crazy beat. Surely the best mix ever!
Lyricism and Knowledge with a bit of a story. He uses sick metaphors, flows nicely and paints you a picture. I feel like this song is one of the songs that is a blueprint for what Hip-Hop should be.
Nas is amazing and no ones uses a better vocab except maybe em
NAS WROTE THE HIP HOP BIBLE. THIS SONG IS IN IT. IT WOULD BE THE PART WHERE JESUS IS BEING RESSURECTED. THE BEST PART that's RIGHT.V 1 Comment
50 Cent is so deep in this song! and he really shows the true meaning of New Age Hip-Hop, and he is also one of the faces of today's Hip-Hop, even though he is not in his prime anymore he can still rap pretty good! He is better than Lil Wayne by a mile. The lyrical meaning of this song is very good! An excellent achievement in the life of 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson the King of Jamaica, New York.
50 Cent is one of the most popular figures in the music industry of all time! This is his best song and it is so deep just listen to the lyrics, about 50 cent's poor past life of crime and his rise to fame! This song smashes Lil Wayne.
I HAVE BEING PRAYING TO LIKE 50 CENT ALL THROUGH MY LIFE,
BECAUSE OF THE CONCEPT HE USE IN RAPPING THAT MAKE HIM DIFFER FROM OTHER MUSICIANS.
Brush this song is so deep and awesome fiddy really shows his talent hearV 7 Comments
Unbelievable! Tech N9ne kills it. He's the best rapper in the entire universe. SO VOTE FOR HM AND HIS SONGS please!
Besides Midwest Choppers, Einstein, So Dope, He's a mental giant, Am I a psycho, Red nose, The beast etc. deserve to be in this list for sure!
... Tech N9NE is unfrigginbelieveable. He is definitely on the level of or even better than Eminem, jay z, dr dre, maybe even 2pac, and all of the other legends, yet he does NOT get enough respect for it. This probable Tech's fastest song, but not his best. The features are great, but tech is the one who really shines through. He has an enormous empire of rappers who he hand-picks to make this song, and it works.
Tech n9ne probably has the most talent of all MCs, and this songs shows it all. - Antwon
Insane Verse by Tech N9ne, Twista and Yelawolf and JBL HoodV 11 Comments
2pac at his finest. He was and is the greatest. This track is the best hip hop ever. 2pac was a poet and never afraid to tell us what he thought.
How can this not be top 3 at least? The lyrics, beat and all are on pointV 2 Comments
Tupac has made a masterpiece! Thugz Mansion is one of the hallmarks in Tupac's history, and thank God it is in the top 30!
Tupac is the greatest rapper, with the best messages, his music isn't only rhythmical but it's also poetic and a story.
How is this not #1 on the top ten... Greatest song ever (acustic version is the best)
2pac the best ever hands down. rap = 2pacV 3 Comments
How the hell is this down in 73 when pop rap trash like 'Not Afraid' is in the Top 10?! Worlds gone mad.
This is ridiculous at least top 15 this song is legendary and changed the world of rap forever
This is one of my favorite rap songs I don't know why it's so far down it should at least be top 20
I ain't a killer but don't push me...V 4 Comments
The lyrics in this song are so powerful. Gives me the shivers every time I hear it
What! This is an awesome sequel to stan all you haters this should be on top 10
A close third on my list. The fourth verse is a must listen. - SwagFlicks
The story is so amazing and the lyrics and his analysis of his persona at the end is on point.One of the best Eminem songsV 4 Comments
Wow. How is this behind "Rabbits Run", that songs not even top 500. Then "The World Is Yours" behind, these are both top 5. Worst list ever
"You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song." Well said, Jay the master, 12 #1 plaques.
52? For real? - EMBIGNASPAC
This is an amazing song. It is so deep and very inspirational. How this song can be below anything involving snoop dog or soulja boy is beyond me. How can this song be so low on the list? Just because it never came on the radio doesn't mean it isn't a beautiful song.
It's one of the most inspirational song of Eminem and it should get more credit... Anyway, I love it till the end! Enjoy
Beautiful at 289 and Murder-murder at 288?
This list is a crap..
All guys must have gone crazy..
Common Vote for the original rappers..
Vote for Eminem, Shakur.
