#10. Casualties of War – Rakim was a lot of things during his initial run in the late 80’s and early 90’s, but a “conscious” MC wasn’t really one of his descriptors. He has always been a great lyricist (probably the best), but his songs generally revolved around purely rhyming. In the “Paid In Full”… Continue reading Best Eric B. and Rakim Songs of All Time!
#10. Lil Wayne – I’ll start off by saying that you could make a “legitimate” argument for at least ten MC’s to be put in this last spot. Names like Rakim, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Scarface, Ghostface, etc (too many names to list honestly). So why did I decide to… Continue reading The 10 Best Rappers of All Time List!
#25. Bop Gun (One Nation) – This record is more of an “anthem”, then an actual song IMO. There’s been a few examples of this happening in hip hop before (songs that “drift” past the 7 minute mark). “Spottieottiedopaliscious” from Outkast comes to mind… On a different note, can anyone actual spell “Spottieottiedopaliscious” without googling… Continue reading Best Ice Cube’s Songs of All Time!
Kill Jay-Z – 8/10 – Ill start off by saying that I think there is a lot of symbolism throughout this entire album, but no more so than on this track in particular. Most people will focus on the “Kanye diss” on this song instead of narrowing in on the bigger picture. I truly believe… Continue reading Jay-Z 4:44 Album Review…
#25. Believe Me ft. Drake – I remember thinking to myself in early 2014 (when this song came out) that for the first time ever the “roles were reversed” in Drake’s and Wayne’s relationship… Wayne needed Drake on this track way more then Drake needed to be featured on a Wayne track for the 100th… Continue reading Best Lil Wayne Songs of All Time!
#10. Right Back at You ft. Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd – One of my favorite “unorthodox instrumental’s” of all time! It sounds like some type of “organ grinder”, its a very hard sound to describe. Ghostface and Raekwon are also featured on this track, and more “Wu associated” track’s” are always a good… Continue reading Best Mobb Deep Songs of All Time!
#10. Jay Electronica – We Made It ft. Soulja Boy – Can You believe that “Soulja Boy” was “on” a classic hip hop track with Jay-Z? His only contribution to the song is saying “We made it”, but the sh*ts still really hard to fathom… #09. Drake – Pound Cake/ Paris Morton Music 2 – This… Continue reading Best Jay-Z Song “Features” of All Time!
