Top Ten Hip-Hop/Rap Songs

The Top Ten

1 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Best Rapper Best Song...

Based On 100% true Life story, Still The Best I'v Ever Heard

Snap back to reality, ain't no song you can compare 2 this one

I've always thought this was the best hip hop song ever made, I'm glad I found this site to find out people agree. Maybe just just because I'm a huge Stan but it is what it is.

2 Juicy - The Notorious B.I.G.

Amazing flow. Automatically gets you in groove with the story he is saying. You feel him. Lose yourself is amazing but this is larger than life.

Tupac sucks. Biggie & Nas & Andre 3000 are the best by far. Tupac fans are usually dumb white teenage girls lol.

He is so good. I wish I could go to one of his concerts.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM! Besrt song ever made!

3 Changes - 2Pac

Man 2pac rules! He's the true pioneer of rap... Changes.. Just happens to be his best song

This top rap list song is garbage. And Tupac wrote better songs in a week than Eminem did his whole life!

For I want to say rest in peace, Tupac was taken way to soon his energy and what he brought to hip hop will always be missed my opinion there s a lot of good rappers today, but we have not yet seen another Tupac yet.

This song really just proves that Tupac is one of the best rappers of all time

4 Stan - Eminem

This song got my into hip hop. Best story telling I have ever heard and you can hear the insanity in stand voice. This song was Eminem at his best. Lose yourself is also amazing but this got me into hip hop.

Come man this should be no. 2 it's Eminem's best song besides lose yourself

Eminem is amazing... I have no words to describe how incredible he is

Don't like Eminem but this is one of the best rap songs of all time

14 Harder Than You Think - Public Enemy UListen to Sample
15 Rap God - Eminem

This song is terrible. I don't know why it's ahead of much better songs. "It's fast" That is definitely not important. At all. I've seen Eminem do better, and this song is proof that Eminem should stop trying to keep up with the mainstream

I think this is the best song from Eminem ever...

This song is nothing but crap although Eminem is pretty good

Best rap song ever

Eazy E is one of the best of all time.

Eazy E was the best

Easily the best hardcore gangsta rap song of all time, so good it made Dr dre look like a punk idiot who doesn't even know what rap music is. Also should have been a future note to rappers like lil wayne whos just a pretend gangster trying tobe hardcore.
