The best hip-hop songs of all time are the songs that touch our souls. They make us smile, laugh, cry, think, and shake what our mama (or papa) gave us. Covering more than four decades, here are the 100 greatest rap songs of all time. 85 | 'Fu-Gee-La,' The Fugees If anyone ever tells you that it's impossible to blend creativity and commercial appeal, simply cue up Fu-gee-La and walk away. 84 | 'I Got 5 on It,' The Luniz I Got 5 on It was the official anthem for broke fiends everywhere. It's also special for adding new terminology to hip-hop lingo.
Hip hop is a musical genre that was born with the hip hop culture in the ghettos of Bronx, New York City in the 70s. Hip hop mainly comprises looping, rapping, free style rap, scratching, DJing, beatboxing (vocal percussion), and sampling. Initially, the music reflected the despair of the African Americans in the changing urban culture of the United States, and soon became a medium of expressing views.
By using low cost equipment to assist the ample creativity of emcees, hip hop created role models and eventually became influential to a large audience around the world. Today, nearly after a span of 30 years, hip hop is most popular genre among the different types of music and has captured hearts of all music lovers all across the world.
But it's not just the music that drives people crazy; it's even the cool and groovy dance moves like locking, b-boying, break dancing, popping, and krumping.
