Top 10 Rap Songs of All Time

01. B.O.B. – Outkast (2000)

Without a doubt the towering masterpiece of rap composition. A churning, pulsating, devastating track, “Bombs Over Baghdad” elevates a mélange of state-of-the-world worries, personal dealings, and gospel-choir axioms into a transcendent monument. The song is a juggernaut that powers along like the “million elephants and silverback orangutans” that reside there. The outro is the finest ending in the genre, allowing the sentiment to reverberate: “Power Music. Electric Revival.” It will be hard for anyone in the game to Outkast’s master stroke.

notable lyrics:

In-slum-national, underground
Thunder pounds when I stomp the ground
Like a million elephants and silverback orangutans
You can’t stop a train
Who want some? Don’t come un-pre-pared
I’ll be there, but when I leave there
Better be a household name
Weather man tellin’ us it ain’t gon’ rain
So now we sittin’ in a drop-top, soaking wet
In a silk suit, tryin’ not to sweat
Hits somersaults without the net
But this’ll be the year that we won’t forget
One-Nine-Nine-Nine, Anno Domini anything goes, be whatchu wanna be
Long as you know consequences, to give and for livin’
The fence is too high to jump in jail
Too low to dig, I might just touch hell
HOT! Get a life, now they on sale
