I'll leave that list for another day, but I wanted to write a post on a similar question: What are your top 5 favorite Hip Hop songs of all-time? For some reason, I find it easier for me to think about particular songs instead of artists (who occasionally have crappy albums or albums that include a couple of heaters and a bunch of filler)...
I started thinking about this post a few weeks ago while riding the subway in Toronto. When I first started thinking about my list, I had to initially fight the urge to make a list that would "sound good" or that would make me look like a seasoned Hip Hop head. 5 years ago, my list might have looked a lot different. It might have included certain artists/songs that I knew were well respected amongst underground and mainstream cats alike.
Maybe it's a sign that I've exited early adulthood, but at 31, I don't feel the need to front like this anymore...So, the following list is a very honest attempt at the 5 Hip Hop songs that I most enjoy listening to...What are your top 5 songs?
1. Canibus--No Return
3. The Game--Dreams
