Generic list post: shinola songs by shit rappers

One of the great things about Rap music is that even some of the biggest hacks have at least one good song in them. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule like Immortal Technique, Pitbull, any rapper from Canada, Termanology, Yung Lean, Theophilus London, Mykki Blanco, and Joe Budden, but it generally holds true that every unremarkable rapper will record at least one remarkable song in the course of their career.

So here's 25 great songs by 25 rappers who are otherwise not so great. Some of these rappers were/are fine in groups or guesting on other people's records, but as solo artists they're hacks of the highest order whose recording careers deserve to be flushed down the toilet rather than go down in the history books.

Loon - This Ain't Funny (2003)
Young T ft. Treal Lee - Work Dat Lumba (2009)
E Money Bags ft. Nature & Kool G. Rap - Friend Of Ours (1999)

Maestro Fresh Wes's first 2 albums are the exception to the Canadian rap rule. But that was eons ago haha

If it's any consolation, British rappers are nearly as bad as Canadian rappers.

I think the Lupe + Stack Bundles song is from 2001/2002.

I've still got a bit of love for Father Time by Saukrates. Still.

Someone needs to zip these up.

Disrespectful. "Ghetto Jam" isn't even Domino's best record ("Sweet Potato Pie")

Lost Art said...

"Bugatti" by Ace Hood is the most obvious one.

Alan Giftsin said...

Fair play, dismiss UK Hip Hop but that Canadia place gots some great rap music.

The Tyga "Bitch Betta Have My Money" remake is pretty good, but I've also been a proud YG fan since "AIM Me", so my opinions could never be trusted.

Chris Thott said...

YG has a whole bunch of jams even if he is a bit of a nebulous personality at times.
