OUR LIST OF THE BEST HIP-HOP SONGS! EVER!

Check out our list of the best hip-hop songs!

In general, making a top of the best songs, countries, tattoos… is never easy because there are thousands of options and all of them are very good. If we add to all of this, the aim of making a list of the best hip hop songs of all time, things get even more complicated, and choosing which songs must be included in this list can involve a debate of many hours. Despite this, we are going to try to make in this post a top 10 of the best hip-hop songs of all time.

Top 10 best hip-hop songs

Hip-hop is possibly one of the most important cultural and musical movements in history and it has been able to merge music, dance, graffiti, and many other artistic currents.

The message

The first song we want to include in this post is The Message by Grandmaster Flash and Furious Five. This is considered the first rap song that counted the true reality of African Americans in the United States. Because of this, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five is considered to be one of the most influential American hip-hop groups as they not only made great songs but were also responsible for making rappers become the representatives of hip-hop bands.

Fight the Power

Another of the songs that could not be missed on this list is Fight the Power, from 1989, by the well-known group Public Enemy and Chuck D. We say that this song cannot be missing from this article because, through it, Chuck D made a song full of messages and political criticisms about American society and the racism that existed at that time.

Juicy

If we continue with some of the best hip hop songs of all time, of course, we also have to include the song Juicy by The Notorious BIG It is considered that The Notorious BIG is one of the great hip hop musicians since he knew how to create a unique sound and above all, through which he showed that he was one of the rappers of the moment.
Through his music, he managed to find the balance between the urban realism of the moment and all life’s excesses.

Nuthin ‘but a’ G ‘Thang’

We could say that Nuthin ‘but a’ G ‘Thang’ is the song that made Dr. Dre become a great benchmark for West Coast hip-hop and began to dominate the New York musical scene as well. Specifically, we decided to include Nuthin ‘but a’ G ‘Thang’ by Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg because the production that was done completely changed the genre and without it, we could not currently listen to artists like Kendrick Lamar.

California Love

Another song that we want to include in this article and you should know as one of the best songs in hip-hop history is California Love by 2pac feat Dr. Dre. This first single from the iconic album All Eyez on Me has become one of the best hip-hop songs of all time as it reached number 19 on the Billboard and stayed on it for 20 weeks.

CREAM

The following song is possibly from one of the best-known groups in rap history. Specifically, we are talking about the song CREAM by Wu-Tang Clan. When the first studio album known as Enter the Wu-Tang was released, it quickly became a smash hit that shattered and completely transformed hip-hop culture.

Paid In Full

Like many other musical genres, hip-hop, in particular, allows musicians to experiment with multiple different sounds, and this is precisely what Eric B. & Rakim managed to do. At a time when many of the artists were exploring the louder sounds of hip hop, Rakim decided to explore new sounds and focus on the slower ones. Thanks to this and to the song Paid In Full, he managed to create a very identifying sound and make the audience feel what he really felt.

In da Club

In da Club is another of the songs that we want to include in this article since 50 Cent managed to create one of the best rhythms in hip hop, managing to mark and determine the sounds of an entire generation.

Lose Yourself

Another of the great artists that we could not stop commenting on in this post is Eminem as he is considered one of the best white rappers of all time. Specifically, from Eminem, we want to highlight two songs. The first, Lose Yourself, is a song that was part of the soundtrack of the film 8 miles. The second, Stan, a song released in 2000 with Dido and which has long been considered one of the great masterpieces of hip hop and pop culture of the 2000s.

Alright

As we have said before, without great artists we would not have discovered others such as Kendrick Lamar. Therefore, the last song we want to include in this article is Alright, from the album To Pimp a Butterfly. Over the years, Lamar has shown what he is capable of with his music and because of that, it is not surprising that he is on this list.

As we said, making this list was not easy. And as we think that a lot of great artists and awesome hip-hop tracks were left out, we will make a little bonus.
These are other hip-hop songs that you should listen to:

  • 6 Foot 7 Foot by Lil Wayne.
  • 1nce Again by A Tribe called Quest.
  • Lost ones by Lauryn Hill.
  • The Creator by Pete Rock.

We can’t help to include some songs from the musical producer Rick Rubin, who has worked with great bands such as The Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Linkin Park, and so many others.

We recommend you listen to:

  • Fight for Your Right, by The Beastie Boys and I Need A Beat, by Ll Cool J.
  • Holiday by Lil Nas X.
  • Hustlin’ by Rick Ross.
  • Heartless by Kanye West.
  • Body by Megan Thee Stallion.
  • Quiet Storm by Mobb Deep.
  • Hot by Young Thug.

Which are your favorite hip-hop songs?
