Mystikal & Infamous 2.0, Built For This by Cormega, Are We Cuttin'? Ms Jade, From Tha Church To Tha Palace by Snoop, and Connected For Life Mack 10 ft.
Simon Says is a bit of an obvious choice for # 1, but in this instance it just about seems the right one.
A The Rugged Man - Stanley Kubrick Since the Ego Trip book finished in '98 and '99 - '09 is a full decade we begin here. Pffft - you've come to the wrong blog if you expected that overrated clunker to be anywhere near this list.
Mac Dre - Off Tha Rictor It seems a lifetime ago now when hardcore NY street records like Whoa, Bad Boyz, Keep It Thoro, and Ante Up could become these huge pop hits and radio mainstays, huh?
Beanie Sigel - Beanie (Mack Bitch)/State Property - Roc The Mic 5.
Backbone - Five Duce Four Tre/Dungeon Family - Trans D.
Killer Mike - The World World/Killer Mike - Akshon (Yeah!
Mystikal - Bouncin' Back (Bumpin' Me Against The Wall) 11.
Honourable mention go to Don't Say Shit To Ruck by Sean Price and Ugly by Bubba Sparxxx. The Diplomats & Master P - 'Bout It, 'Bout It Part 3 2.
Pimp C, Sugarhill and Mo' Money, Mo' Murder "Homicide" by AZ, The Ghetto's Trying To Kill Me and I Miss My Homies by Master P, 1 Luv and Flashin' by E-40, Evil Streets by Onyx, Pimp Of The Year and Can You Feel Me? Lil' Wayne - Tha Block Is Hot/Juvenile - U Understand?
by Dru Down, Y'All Ain't Ready Yet and Here I Go by Mystikal, Firm Biz remix by The Firm with Half-A-Mill, On My Way and If U Stay Ready by Suga Free, Lookin' At Me by Ma$e, Luchini and Black Nostaljack by Camp Lo, Soulja Rag by Juvenile, How Ya Want It Native Tongues remix by Jungle Brothers et al, and Piece Of The Action by Godfather Don are some personal favourites conspicuous by their absence), but, fuck it, I can forgive them such transgressions since compiling the first 19 years of rap into list form must have been such a mammoth, brain-frying task.
Also attending the party was Mack Maine, Lil Twist, and Hood.
