Best Summer Rap Songs of 2005
50 Best Summer Rap Songs of the 2000s

5. Lil' Kim - "Lighters Up"
Do you care that she doesn't make knockers like this anymore? In these four celebratory minutes, Queen B makes us boogie with BK.

4. Young Jeezy - "Go Crazy"
Jeezy salutes d-boys everywhere. Equally amazing is the remix, which finds Jay-Z bouncing on the beat like it came with leather seats.

3. Missy Elliot - "Lose Control"
Missy had the kids writhing around wildly in her typical high-energy fashion.

2. Paul Wall - "Sittin' Sidewayz"
Paul Wall tips his hat to the city of Houston in a remarkable summer anthem.

1. Cassidy - "I'm A Hustla"
This one hustled its way to regular rotation and became a mainstay for the better part of 2005. Bonus points for the most effective use of Jay-Z's voice in a sample ever.
