#10. Amnesia – I like it when “real MC’s” try their hand at “contemporary” beats. It really highlights the “talent gap” between the “underground” rappers, and the “mainstream” rappers of today’s generation. I’m not “hatin’” or nothing, but even the “Migos” (with three brains) couldn’t come up with “bars” anywhere near this level #FACTS… #9.… Continue reading Best Freddie Gibbs Songs of All Time!
#25. All Me ft. 2 Chainz, and Big Sean – Would you be shocked if I told you that this was the song that made me a “Drake fan”? Truthfully before I heard this song I perceived Drake’s music as being “anti hip hop”. This was the first song I heard from him that I genuinely liked and… Continue reading Best Drake Songs of All Time!
#10. Mary J. Blige – Real Love (hip hop remix) – If you were ever under the assumption that Kendrick Lamar or Eminem were the first rappers to “cross over” to a “pop” audience, think again. The “Notorious one” did it way back in 1992 with this smash hit “Real Love”. Now I understand Run-DMC did the… Continue reading Best Notorious B.I.G. Song “Features” of All Time!
#10. Wrist ft. Pusha T – This song is a lot of fun to listen to! The “beat” sets a tempo that allows both rappers to “show out”. Pusha T does what he he is “known for” (rapping about drug dealing), and everything goes “according to plan” for the most part… #9. Soul Food – The instrumental on the… Continue reading Best Logic (the rapper) Songs of All Time!
#25. Things Done Changed – “Things Done Changed” in “ghettos across all of the United States, in the late 80’s/early 90’s . Fist fights had turned into shootouts. “Cook outs” had turned into shootouts. “Cleaning your car”at a car wash establishment had turned into… You get the point… #24. Ready to Die – Even from the… Continue reading Best Notorious B.I.G Songs of All Time!
#25. Bye Baby – If there was ever a hip hop song with power to make me cry like a small infant, it would be this one. I once heard this song while going through a tough break up, and this song hit wwaayy to close to my heart at the time. I guess you could… Continue reading Best Nas Songs of All Time!
#25. Never Change – This marks a Kanye West debut of sorts. Kanye’s voice appears on the hook of this song from 2001. He doesn’t rap, but it’s cool to hear his voice this early in his development as an artist. As far as Jay’s concerned on this track… It’s more of what you would expect from… Continue reading Best Jay-Z Songs of All Time!
#25. Thugz Mansion (Acoustic) ft. Nas & J. Phoenix – Tupac and Nas link up on the “other side”, to make this memorable 2pac record. The premise might sound “corny”, but it goes over amazingly! Definitely a collaboration that needed to happen… #24. Only God Can Judge Me ft. Rappin’ 4-Tay – There were soooo many unnecessary… Continue reading Best Tupac Shakur Songs of All Time! (part 1)
#25. Black Friday ft. J.Cole – Kendrick and J. Cole take turns free styling over each others classic beats. Kendrick goes first, and quickly bodies the “J. Cole beat”! J. Cole goes next, and his attempt on the “Kendrick beat” falls very flat by comparison… #24. Duckworth. – A song that is more “Historically Important”, then ” Historically Great” per… Continue reading Best Kendrick Lamar Songs of All Time!
