Although this appeared on Fear of a Black Planet , it was much more along the lines of the best tracks on It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back , angry, loaded with powerful allusions and strong rhetoric, backed by a funky sample-filled music track that was among their best. I use the opening drum loop as the alarm tone on my cell phone. Stick with the original rather than the Coldcut remix. The failure of the Hieroglyphics collective, which included Souls of Mischief and the next artist on this list, to find a mainstream audiences is one of the great commercial tragedies of hip-hop.

The first alternative rap song to break through as a mainstream hit at a time when LL was veering dangerously into rap-balladeer territory.
So was the success of this song the worst thing to happen to De La Soul? They shied away from anything commercial on future albums, and what looked like a potential Hall of Fame career because of their willingness to ignore the norms of hip-hop lyrics ran off the rails after one album.
Or to at least just make themselves more money? Kane found commercial success with the Smooth Operator persona, but his legacy should start with this track, one of the best straight-up bragging songs in hip-hop history.
G-Funk before the term existed, and early evidence that Dr. Dre who produced the album was a force to be reckoned with beyond N. Twelve years after the accident that turned his powerful voice into a hoarse whisper, the D. Or an eternalist? The best MC in history has to be at the top of the list, right?
Both guys were at the tops of their games — I like to think that the music pushed Rakim to deliver one of his two best performances — and it has proven both enduring and influential even as the artists themselves have faded from the scene.
So what songs did I miss? What artists? But I look forward to your suggestions and comments. They sampled Gang Starr or Main Source on a track or two.
Had one travk where he diss NWA and shockwaves was the end result. Playa, yo list is ill, true that.. But no Slick? Im not a big Biggie fan but im sure one or two Biggies would have made a difference. No Brand Nubi?
