Generic list post: favourites of the favourites 1979 - 2015

What do u do when Ezale and Nef The Pharaoh both take forever to drop their respective summer slaps and the Jimmy Wopo song you've been waitin' on has an unnecessary Sonny Digital cameo? You whip up the ultimate stopgap post in the form of a list where you identify your favorite rap song of each year from 1979 to 2015. Personal canon or just the type of parlour game one plays during another sleepless night when the country is gripped by a heatwave? Blog game Best of Both Worlds, tbh.

Rap Bro Internet in near-full effect here because the only years other than 1981 and 1986 where I considered songs by Female Rappers™ were 2000 (Lil' Kim's Suck My Dick), 2002 (Trina's B R Right), 2006 (Young B's Chicken Noodle Soup) 2011 (Lady's Pussy), and 2014 (Iggy Azalea's Fancy.) Honour thy Mia X, but f*ck these bloggas who stan for Lauryn Hill.

**EDIT** Russian Ray zipped this list up. благодаря, comrade.

Be Better Than Me>>>>>

Odd choice for 2005 (and I started to think you don't appreciate Z-Ro's work).

Si Mane Price said...

I've probably listened to Mo City Don (Freestyle) more than any other song the past 10 years.

sisilafami said...

so too short is teh goat

Ben Jones said...

Some interesting choices most of which I can agree with except maybe the last 5 years but thats probably just cause I don't care for a good majority of new rap sans a small handful namely Roc Marc, Starlito, Boldy James, Mr. Muthafukin Exquire, and couple of others.

Si Mane Price said...

Did Ben just besmirch Rear View Mirror?

GGGGG said...

Suga Free twice ftw.

Ben Jones said...

You know I actually did just notice that when I looked again that is actually a pretty solid choice

Si Mane Price said...

The most slappin' choice.

"See that chick right there? She a lil' old slut
She said E-40's a FILF - Father I'd Like (To) Fuck
Lil' girl, you way too young for me
What you need to do is go and get your mom for me
I heard she got some vicious dome action, gobble game is fire
Suction-cup lips suck the air out a tire
Hips, butt, tits - bitch call me sire
And I won't stop mackin' 'til I retire"
