Kane in his prime was a brute force unparalleled by none.

59 | Special Ed - "I Got It Made" | Compare Prices
In the land of one-hit wonders, this is undeniable royalty.

58 | Eminem - Mosh | Download| Compare Prices
Eminem's shift to political consciousness gave him a new sandbox to play with. It also led to this huge smash in the midst of a controversial election.

57 | DJ Quik - "Tonite" | Download| Compare Prices
Pure proof of why Quik is one of the illest hip-hop producers of all time.

56 | Black Moon - "Who Got da Props" | Download| Compare Prices
This one crawls into your head like the slug from The Matrix and vows to remain there.

55 | Naughty By Nature - "OPP" | Download| Compare Prices
Show of hands if you thought the "P" stood for "property."

54 | Nas - One Mic | Download| Compare Prices
"One Mic" builds up gradually and explodes into a torrent of explosive rhymes. One of Nas' finest moments.

A Crisco-slick gem from Tribe's masterpiece.

52 | UGK - "Ridin' Dirty" | Download| Compare Prices
The essence of the dirty south crystallized in one seminal single. Many southern rappers owe their success to UGK's influence.

51 | Artifacts - "Wrong Side of da Tracks" | Compare Prices
Arguably the greatest graffiti-inspired song in hip-hop history.
