Best Rap Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Hypnotize - The Notorious B.I.G.

His so amazing, in my opinion he is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

This should be higher up the list! So smooth and such an awesome flow, catchy chorus and one of the best beats in any rap song. A hip hop classic!

In my top 5, no clue how it's so low. Biggie still has the best flow in the game almost 20 years after his death. Not as good as loose yourself, changes, juicy, and Stan, but still an amazing song that should be at least in the top 10

Amazing

42 One Love - Nas
43 Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique

GREAT TO SEE AN UNDERGROUND RAP SONG HERE!

I personally think there are better songs than DWTD, but there should be at least one underground rap song on this list, and Dance With The Devil is that song. I think I. T is the most overrated underground rapper ever, people even say he's better than Eminem and Nas (laugh out loud, I. T is great but he isn't THAT good! ) but there are loads of underground rappers better than Immortal Technique.

Still, this song is amazing, the first time I heard it, I wasn't even listening to the lyrics but after a while, I decided to listen to the lyrics completely.

I was blow away, this is the only rap song that managed to hit me harder than Eminem's song 'Stan' and trust me, Stan was a powerful song. Lyrically, this is one of Immortal Techniques best songs and definitely deserves to be here.

But what is Crank That and Ice Ice Baby on this list? Those songs are awful and don't deserve to be on this list at all.

thank you for helping to expose great rappers like Tech - bobsmith

Is is probably the most emotional song I have ever had, it totally moved me. I expected it to be a normal every day rap, but when I heard this I just stopped everything I did, played a second time and just thought about my life. This song is so true and very sad. Be prepared to listen...

This and stan are some of the best story rap songs I've ever heard,definitely deserves to be higher

44 Sing for the Moment - Eminem

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.

45 Walk This Way - Run-DMC

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

46 Stronger - Kanye West

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 - 12cc

47 Put It On - Big L

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 song

48 It Ain't Hard to Tell - Nas

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.

49 Without Me - Eminem

I can't believe this song is so low! Is is by far the best rap song that I have listened to

Beat is catchy, video is funny, Em is unbeatable!

The third verse is so WOW!

It would be so empty without Eminem.

51 What You Know - T.I.

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 much

52 I Ain't Mad At Cha - 2Pac

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 point

53 Hurt Me Soul - Lupe Fiasco
54 Thugz Mansion - Tupac

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 = 2pac

55 Dead Presidents II - Jay-Z

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

56 Many Men (Wish Death) - 50 Cent

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 hear

57 Hail Mary - 2Pac

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

A rapper and a poet. Pure genius.

58 Lyrics of Fury - Eric B. and Rakim
59 They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) - Pete Rock and CL Smooth

There was really nothing like it! It was a lyrical masterpiece and had a nice flow, along with Pete Rock!

Fantastic Hip Hop, there is just nothing to compare it with accept old rap!

Mad single! Great flow, lyrics and an old school classic!

Arguably top 5. Too many people on this ridiculous site know absolutely nothing about Rap music...and it shows. Hey, check this out dummies, I'm about to let you in on a little secret that's gonna blow your Simple Simon minds; Tupac, Biggie & Eminem are NOT the only rappers to have ever existed. Crazy, right?! You're merely scratching the surface. Dig deeper...then keep digging. Eventually, you'll discover that there's far more to this Rap thing than you're presently able to fathom. Right now, you all are playing' ya selves. Time to study up because YOU! MUST!

60 Beautiful - Eminem

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.

Eminem!
