Top Rap Song

After months of email and posts, we've finally compiled and rated what you submitted as the top rap songs of all time. At first we tried to rank these, but we realized that due to the diverse nature of these songs it seemed unfair to do so. Depends on personal opinion, right? Wrong!

Thankfully we came to our senses and threw that notion out the window. Fair? Objective? What fun is that?

The artist that popped up the most on this list is Biggie Smalls (aka Notorious B.I.G.), followed by Tribe Called Quest, 2Pac, The Roots and KRS One/Boogie Down Productions.

Remember this is by no means scientific.

So here they are, your top fifty rap songs of all time. View album information, lyrics and compare prices by clicking the title. As always all gripes and complaints, cheers and pats on the back can be shuffled along to the folks who submitted these...you!

Enjoy y'all.
