Generic list post: bestest Rap songs evah!!!

Rap blog law dictates any site which lasts longer than three years has to drop a self-absorbed vanity list of their favourite Rap songs ever at least once before they depart this textual coil, usually on a day when they can't be arsed formulating their thoughts to post anything else. If I've gotta pick the jams I'd stick on a CD-R to take with me to a desert island, please believe these are ones I'm burning onto that damn thing:

Brand Nubian - Step To The Rear (1990)
Webbie - Porch (2003)
Lil' Boosie - Trouble Man (2005)
Doug E. Fresh ft. MC Ricky D - La Di Da Di (1985)
Ice-T - Drama (1988)
MF DOOM - Rhymes Like Dimes (1999)
Geto Boys - My Mind's Playing Tricks On Me (1991)
AZ - Doe Or Die (1995)
Juvenile - Solja Rag (1997)
The Diplomats - Dipset Anthem (2003)
ByrdGang - Anniversary (2007)
Suga Free - Why U Bullshittin'? (1997)
Eric B. & Rakim - Lyrics Of Fury (1988)
OutKast ft. Slick Rick - Da Art Of Storytellin' remix (1998)
Khayree ft. Mac Dre - Back 2 My Mission (1997)
Z-Ro - Respect My Mind (2005)
Spoonie Gee - Love Rap (1980)
M.O.P ft. Kool G. Rap - Stick To Ya Gunz (1996)
Young Bleed - Stamp On It (2011)
Ice Cube - Once Upon A Time In The Projects (1990)
N.W.A - Real N*ggaz Don't Die (1991)
Black Rob - Whoa (2000)

New rule for 2014: anybody who doesn't know where the line "it'll be 3 n***as clappin' but we ain't applaudin' you mothafuckas" comes from probably shouldn't be allowed to pontificate about Rap on the internet.

There are much better Suga Free songs, mate.

I hadn't seen that Mouse article, no.

It says they talked to him about Swerve and Cartoon too but I don't see them in the piece?

DON'T THINK ABOUT IT, DO IT!!

Ben Jones said...

Nice to see a list for a change that isn't paint by numbers rap songs and that someone else recognizes the greatness of Stick to Ya Gunz.

Not a single Nas song in any of these lists. Fuck you guys ;-p

Wicked said...

Anyone who listens to The Diplomats is a STRAIGHT UP FGT!! And LOL at a few of those other fgt ass songs. Get real, br0! #smh

Drew Huge said...

Wicked still spreading his special brand of love. Fuck outta here with your 'real hip-hop' for stuck in the past purist cunts, shaking his head like Michael J. Fox saying 'hell nah'.
