My favorite Radio Raps

  • Nov 3, 2009

I hate what gets played on the radio. As the conspiracy theory goes, I believe it's been hijacked by evil corporations that want us to like wack music. But once in a while a great rap gets on the radio and most of the time it will catch on and change the game for a bit

O.P.P.
First of all Treach comes nice on this track, the way he rhymes and flows quick is super dope. It's fun and it got a nasty edge to it. It made me laugh and puts a swagger in everybody's step. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJgFU3U4X_Y

Don't Truss It
The video to this song was superb. The sounds of this track with Chuck's voice and the bomb squad track got a kind of energy that you don't hear often http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLhuv-kLj_I

Make the Music With You Mouth
Biz Markie is my favorite entertainer ever http://s0.ilike.com/play#Biz+Markie:Make+The...726935.20599166.0.2.267%2Cstd_4364afd9930c402d8e94d277f3316b50

Gettin' It
This song is funky! It's got a positive motivational message too. Don't hate that player lifestyle. Parliment and About Face are on this track too. http://s0.ilike.com/play#Too+%24hort:Gettin%....8028049.7860805.0.1.83%2Cstd_35a0a5adb95548c44d640850680eea9b

Paid In Full
Can a human possible say "a nice big plate of fish, which is my favorite dish" any better than Rakim? The best 1 verse rap ever. http://popup.lala.com/popup/648799894521309104

Mind Playin' Tricks
It's kind of wierd to see such a song get played on top 40 stations over and over. It's a very well thought out, cinematic, character driven story intended to be a concept song about manic depressive paranoia.
See the full review, "A violent song about Manic Paranoia on top 40 radio?".

Get Up Get Out
"don't let the day of your life pass by, 'cause you and I got to do for you and I"

Humpty Dance
One of the funnest songs ever to play on the radio. Digital Underground might be known as a one hit wonder just because this song has been on the radio so much more even though they've got a lot of other good, funny, funky music

The Vapors
I love the fun swagger of this song. Biz is great. Light hearted but also making a point about that everybody agrees on about how people are quick to jump on the band wagon.

Bombs Over Baghdad (BOB)
I forgot how much I liked this song. As good as Andre and Big Boi are, it's very rare to see both of the at their best on a track. I like the pace of this rap. Actually, this rap would be higher on my list if it wasn't so over produced. There's a lot of electro-beat, very snappy drum machine programming, a choir, guitar samples. The lyrics are doper than the track and the track is not too bad.

Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang
Everybody tried to rap like snoop and copy that Chronic-style after this blew up the airwaves. It's just a laid back freestyle, but it caught a lot of ears.
12
Tricky
Wasn't sure if I should go with Tricky or "You be Illin'". This rap is fun and dope... It catches Run DMC's flavor in short rap.
13
Jump Around
It was hard for me to admit I liked this one. I like the attitude that Everlast brings as he rides Muggs' and DJ Lethal's swirling, hard hitting, versatile fast track. I think it lost favor with me because it gets played so many goddammed times. It's good and it changed what kind of tracks got played on the radio. People can dance to it. You can work out to it. You can remember your highschool days when you hear it.
See the full review, "House of Pain in effect".

What did you think of this list?
