100 Greatest Rap Songs

80 | Wu-Tang Clan - "Protect Ya Neck" | Download | Compare Prices
Unbeknownst to many, the Wu has been making body threats since 92. You best get that heady bobbin', fool.

79 | Cypress Hill - "How I Could Just Kill A Man" | Download | Compare Prices
Admittedly insane-in-the-membrane rappers swap ideas on how to improve world peace.

78 | The Game - "Dreams" | Listen| Compare Prices
Game at his most imaginative. Kanye West in top form. A hip-hop anthem is born.

77 | Big Pun - "Still Not A Player" | Download| Compare Prices
The original version, "I'm Not a Player," reached No. 57 on Billboard. Pun tried again with the Joe-assisted remix "Still Not a Player" and soared to No. 24, making it the most successful public clarification in chart history.

76 | LL Cool J - "Mama Said Knock You Out" | Download| Compare Prices
A lot of guys probably saw a muscular L.L. at the punching bag and decided they were long overdue in starting their own exercise programs. It was also the proverbial walk-to-the-ring song for professional boxers in the '90s.

75 | Biz Markie - "Nobody Beats The Biz" | Download| Compare Prices
A stunningly amusing song by the Clown Prince of Hip-Hop.

74 | Nas - "New York State of Mind" | Download| Compare Prices
What "Empire State of Mind" wants to be when it grows up.

73 | Fabolous - "Breathe" | Download| Compare Prices
One of the most impressive MCs of the 2000s cemented his arrival with this Just Blaze epic.

72 | Lupe Fiasco - "Kick, Push" | Buy| Compare Prices
A picturesque hip-hop anthem that showcases Lupe's superb storytelling.

71 | Big L - "Ebonics" | Download| Compare Prices
Big L schools the world on urban lingo. I wonder how many inner-city cops were forced listen to "Ebonics" as part of their orientation.
