Kanye West f/ Kendrick Lamar - "No More Parties In LA" Album: The Life Of Pablo 2016
Kanye and Kendrick rapping together is an unusually good combination. IMO, Kanye outrapped Kendrick, which is a rare thing to do for any rapper. The storytelling and Ye and Dot switching stories is an exciting idea, and it works well. Not to mention the fantastic production, this song is phenomenal.
I'll never wrap my head around that Joey was only 17 when this masterpiece was released. Like he wrote bars better than any rapper could ever do in their entire career. Steez also MURDERED his verse. RIP, what potential he had.
Travis Scott f/ Kacy Hill - "90210" Album: Rodeo 2015
Legendary. The beat switch. The rapping, kacy hill's vocals, the atmosphere this song creates. Everything about 90210 is perfect. Travis isn't known for his rapping, but he really shines here. 90210 is one of those songs that take you to the other dimension
A Tribe Called Quest - "Electric Relaxation" Album: Midnight Marauders 1993
This is it—my favourite rap song of all time by my favourite rap group of all time. Electric Relaxation is fantastic in so many different ways, but my absolute favourite element is Phife Dawg and Q-Tip repeatedly switching flows and rapping over one another. Tribe mixes back and forth from Check The Rhime and are braggadocios with their extremely clever lines and metaphors.
Thanks to the guys following along. I hope you enjoyed this list and hopefully agree with some of it (and please let me know your thoughts on it!) I had fun putting this list together, so I'm considering making it into a rankdown if there's enough interest.
