    Default VH1's Greatest Hip-Hop Songs

    OK, I am a big hip-hop fan, and I am watching this countdown as we speak. I found the full list, but I wanted to get some opinions here. Here is the Top 10:

    10 Kurtis Blow - "The Breaks"
    09 Salt-N-Pepa - "Push It"
    08 Snoop Doggy Dogg - "Gin and Juice"
    07 Notorious B.I.G. - "Juicy"
    06 N.W.A. - "Straight Outta Compton"
    05 Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five - "The Message"
    04 Run-DMC ft/ Aerosmith - "Walk This Way"
    03 Dr. Dre - "Nuthin But A 'G' Thang"
    02 Sugarhill Gang - "Rapper's Delight"
    01 Public Enemy - "Fight The Power"


    Not atrocious, but there are much better songs by many of those artists. "Walk This Way" is not even CLOSE to the best Run-DMC song, for instance. What do you think?

    I'm not a big hip hop fan at all, but there are definitely some songs I think are genius. I don't know how this list can be compiled without "Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J and "California Love" by Tupac in the Top 10. The LL song would be #1 on my list.

    I dunno, it's hard to find the top 10, but these could be in addition to the ones you have:

    The bridge is over - BDP
    White lines - Melle mel
    Rosa parks?? - Outkast. or some other Outkast track.
    I feel like there should be a Tribe called quest track on the list also.

    Those two are definitely Top 20-25 in my personal list. I think I'd put "Welcome to the Terrordome" ahead of "Fight the Power" for PE, but they'd both be Top 25, too.

    "Welcome to the Terrordome" might be a better song, but "Fight the Power" is more iconic. I think that's probably a big consideration in lists like this.

    No. It's not. I'm partial to "It's Tricky."

    i'm surprised that 50 Cent and Kanye West both cracked the top 20 while the first mention of Nas isn't even until the middle of the list. no Kool G Rap, either....
